First off, let me apologize for not posting in so long! I’ve missed this! However, the past (insert amount of days I’ve been gone) days have been crazy busy. You know those times, when you have so much to do that you just give up and say “Nope, I’m not going to any of this”. That’s what I say in my head, but unfortunately there are some things that you HAVE to do, even if you’d rather do literally anything else. For example, you might have to go to school, take an AP European History Exam that almost kills you, read books that are so boring you want to burn them, buy a new laptop… Okay, that one is something I actually enjoyed. But that brings me to my point! I wanted to write something today that is completely random, and that will hopefully make you laugh if you’re going through a stressful time like I was. (Or even if you aren’t. It’s always good to laugh).
I have recently started a new mini-obsession with manatees. I don’t want to call it a true obsession, because most likely it will be short-lived, and it’s not like I’m going around talking and thinking nonstop about manatees. That would be…socially unacceptable. Instead, I just learned a little more about them and set my desktop background to this absolutely positively adorable picture.
If you don’t think this fat manatee is one of the cutest things in the whole entire world, then you are no longer my friend. Every time I look at it I want to hug it! Is that weird? Maybe so, but I already warned you I have a mini-obsession. Did you know they are endangered? Well they are, and it makes me sad. If I could, I’d buy the entire ocean to keep them safe and then bake them cookies all the time. Unfortunately, the ocean is too expensive for me to buy. Instead I’m just going to sit here and daydream about it.
Now I know what you’re thinking. This girl is crazy! What in the world is she talking about? I’m just talking about manatees. If you have a problem with that, why did you even read this far, huh? All I’m trying to do is share my love of these extremely fat, slow-moving sea creatures with everyone. Then maybe people will realize that they are not, in fact, the most awkward person in the world, because there’s always me! I hope you’re laughing by now, because if not…well then I just proved my previous point.
Anyway, now you’re wondering why I added British accents in my title. Would you be disappointed if I told you it was for no reason? You would? Then no need to fear, because it happens to be my next topic. If you know me very well, you’d know that I often have several mini-obsessions going on at the same time, the way that some people might have several tabs open at the same time on their internet browser. “British accents” happens to be one I’ve acquired even more recently.
Yesterday, two of my friends thought it would be fun to speak in British accents, as is common for Americans. I’ve always enjoyed hearing those accents, but up until then I thought it useless to try and fake one, because that is just what it would be: FAKE. However, for some odd reason my friend convinced me to try, and it turns out I’m not that bad! (If you’re British and reading this, it was good for American standards.) The more I kept talking with an accent, the more fun I had. My friends in other classes loved it; my boyfriend even sent me a text later asking me to “please talk like that forever! :)”. Almost every single time people would immediately start to use the accent with me! Just try it with your friends next time you see them. Most people will automatically join in and do it with you. If you’re not good at any accents, try whispering. It works almost every time.
In conclusion, I hope this made you laugh. All I’m trying to do is brighten up someone’s day. 🙂 If you have anything to tell me, please do so in the comments. I love hearing from my readers. I don’t want to tell you what to do, but if you don’t mind, let your friends know about me! Have a wonderful day!
