Let’s ignore the fact that half of you have probably already read this before when it got published by accident 🤧.
Hey Pals! Today, I’ll be sharing with you 5 Ways in which My Blogging Self is Different from My IRL One. I just thought it would be a fun little post, you know? So, let’s start then!
1: My sense of humour is very different in real life
In fact, I’m pretty sure the way my humour takes shape in public, it can’t even be called sense of humour in the first place..
My humour here, as I’ve been told by my readers, is often sarcastic. I also think it’s dry humour. And I don’t know if you’ll believe this, but face to face with somebody, I am never this sarcastic. Sure, there are times, but very less as compared to when I’m texting or blogging. It’s like sarcasm only suits the text version of me. I don’t go around cracking jokes in public. I mostly tell weird stuff that has happened to me in a funny tone.
In real life, usually when I’m with my best friend and we’re in a good mood, our humour revolves around finding every little thing in a room to be so funny that the teacher herself notices and thinks we’re probably cracked in the head. This one time we laughed just because we were trying to imagine how a girl in our class would like if she were pencil 🧐…so um yeah, our humour makes no sense.
3: I am a lot less intolerant towards people in real life
As much as my blogging self is very chaotic, I also think it’s very polite when it has to be. Like when interacting with people and stuff. Even if I don’t like a particular blogger, I don’t go around making a big deal outta it or just insulting them and stuff (I mean, obviously who would do that?). That’s really not the case in real life though.
If there’s somebody I don’t like, I would most probably stay away from them as much as possible simply because they annoy me so much that I can’t stand them. There have even been times when I’ve straight-up called out people when I think they’re being annoying…which yeah, I think I need to work on it lol. Like you know those toppers who say they don’t study then get the best marks? I don’t like such people, so I don’t talk to them because I don’t think they’re genuine. I mean, what’s so wrong about owning the fact that you did study to get such results?! I mean I own it too and it’s not a big deal! It’s a little thing but it easily irritates me.
3: I tend to keep my real life away from my blogging one
By this I mean that I don’t let what’s happening in my real life, be it happy or sad, affect my blog unless it absolutely has to. It’s a small thing really, I don’t think people would have even noticed but I barely talk about my life aside from my blog If I start doing that I just think I’ll start overthinking stuff and it’ll be better to not mix the two lives up and keep them separate. It helps me look at my blog as a break from reality, and while most people find pleasure in telling their readers about what’s happening in their lives, I’m just a little uncomfortable with that.
And I guess I probably shouldn’t be because it would make me come across as a robot with no actual life but I think it’s fine considering y’all know my personality pretty well to consider me to be human enough. You guys know the little things in my life but not the big ones. Like this year I had a post scheduled on the day of my real sister’s wedding. The post went out when I was too busy dancing my butt off at the sangeet ceremony 💃.
4: I overthink way more in real life than I do regarding my blog
I mean, there’s really not much to overthink when it comes to my blog because well, it’s going pretty well and I consider it a success. Besides, many people enjoy what I write, so that builds up my confidence! And I think things are just easy here. My blog brings out the best version of me.
But in real life, I worry more about stuff and get upset easily, which is usually not evident until I actually tell somebody and that does not happen often. I mean, when you are this typical 15 year old living in absolutely luxury, what’s not to overthink about, huh 🙂?
5: I don’t speak in English with anybody in real life
Not unless it is absolutely necessary! I feel so weird having conversations with people I’ve been calling “naalayak” and “besharam” my whole life (which are mild slang-ish Hindi terms), because English feels so sophisticated and friends are not supposed to be sophisticated with each other, it is against the very rules of friendship!
But wait- I do have English conversations with myself when I’m alone or in a public place but not surrounded with anybody and feeling very awkward. It’s this bad habit that I have and I’ll begin babbling to myself, having conversations in a weird American accent, before I realise people could actually be looking at my mouth and thinking I’ve gone crazy lol.
Hmm…looking back on this post I think this was supposed to be more thoughtful and self-satisfying than interesting. If you did like it though, do lemme know!
