Five things you didn't know about the Misnomer


First things first, I know that I've been a bad, bad blogger. I haven't posted in ages, due to a mixture of unforeseeable circumstances, a heavy workload and bad time management. Anyway, excuses aside, I'm really sorry. And knowing I really couldn't put off posting very much longer, as my last post is soon facing its one month anniversary, I decided I really needed to post something, in hopes that my thirteen followers can find it in their hearts to forgive me.
So here we are. I've decided to do one of those 'Five things you don't know about me' that everybody gets annoyed by, but can't help reading. 

Five Things You Didn't know About the Misnomer
5. I wear thick, red-framed glasses that you may never see me wear as not only am I trying to be enigmatically anonymous here, but they are also kind of unattractive. I only wear them to uni and at home.

4. I have an unhealthy interest in pictures of people smoking cigarettes, although I don’t smoke myself.

3. In real life, I curse like a sailor. I just tone it down on this blog and on twitter. People are usually shocked to hear this as I’m very mannerly and pleasant. I think people’s shocked reaction is as a result of people equating cursing with bitterness. But I’m not bitter. I just like the umph! A swearword gives to a sentence. For example, one may say “I think your shirt is awesome” but I will say “I think your shirt is fucking awesome, man.”

2. I can’t whistle. This inability is nothing that I am proud of and you may never hear me refer to this again.

1. I can sing fairly well. I used to dance too (a bit of ballet and some Latin dancing). But neither activity was much of a passion for me. I've always been more obsessed with writing and reading. The power of written word is intriguing to me. I think I've mentioned before that I want to be an author, as well as teach literature.

p.s. Another blog post is coming right after this one, since I haven't posted in so long. Its on the topic 'shopping in the Caribbean.'
