Is that weird? It probably is.
Anywho, I really only do it to keep my ego from inflating too much. Ego checks are good for you. It's also healthy to laugh at yourself for your faults and face them head-on instead of trying to skirt them.
During French class today, I was on fire with self-deprecating statements. Here are a few examples:
"I am like time. When I pass by, usually, no one really notices."
"I am just like that poster on the wall. You know, because I kind of hang around and talk about something relevant to the subject being discussed, but am never truly integrated into the conversation."
"I am like the floor. People just walk all over me, and I let it happen."
Okay, perhaps these aren't exactly self-deprecation, per se. It's more like I'm... Bullying myself?
Darn, that actually doesn't sound too healthy.
Nonetheless, these small jokes that I make about myself bring me great joy and entertainment. I just made that sound even worse, didn't I?
I briefly talked about this with my friends (WOW, YOU HAVE FRIENDS?), and we all agreed that once we hit high school, dry humor became a part of our sense of humor (or lack thereof).
I should really start trying to view things in a more positive light.
Does anyone else do this? Do you peeps have any good ones to share? Did you guys enjoy this short and sweet post?
Oh, and one more thing. I do realize that my posting times are quite sporadic. I'll work on improving the consistency of my posting times, because clearly, not everyone stays up to unhealthy times like I do. Thanks for sticking with me, peeps! :D
