Own your quirks

Own Your Quirks

Let’s imagine for a moment that we are all alike. Wouldn’t that be boring?

I recently dug out a box full of my university notes and came across an essay I did on individuality as part of my Cultural Studies module. After all these years, it made quite an interesting reading and inspired me to write today’s post.

To tell you the truth, there was a moment in my life when I felt like an alien. I was more mature than some people my age and had a different outlook on life. I was (and still am) the quiet type who preferred to stay in and read rather than go out and party until morning. I was also the only person in my social circle who didn’t drink so some people said that I was weird.

Although hearing that made me question myself for a short while, I then realised that I’m completely normal and don’t have to follow the suit just to fit in. After all, the world would be a dull place if we all looked and acted alike.

So embrace your uniqueness and own your quirks. To give you a little boost to do so, today I’m sharing with you my quirks which shaped me into who I am today.

I love eating strawberries with pasta

I know this probably sounds gross to you but it’s an amazing dish. Simply mash the strawberries with some sugar and serve them with pasta.

I bite my lip 

I can’t help but bite my lip whether I’m working on my plans or getting nervous about something.

I have a serious sweet tooth

Chocolate, ice cream, cupcakes…I can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’m not joking.

I have a ‘scary’ looking doll sitting by my bed

When I was 7, my dad got me a doll which I still have to these days. Some people say that it’s freaky and looks like something you can see in horror movies. I don’t agree with them and I’d like to give it to my daughter if I ever have one.

I have an OCD about my teeth

I carry a toothpaste and toothbrush with me everywhere I go and brush my teeth each time I have coffee.

I wear socks in bed

My feet get really cold so I always put my socks on before going to bed.

  • Interesting quirks, they’re so original :3

    I also wear socks in bed because I don’t sleep without them! The winter in the north is very cold!

    My quirk is that I need to have a shower with the radio on! Well, I always have to listen music when I stay at home everyday… hahaha.

  • It’s always so much fun finding out about other people’s quirks – like you say, it makes us unique! I love that you have a sweet tooth, I definitely share that one with you! Hmm, one of my quirks is that I usually start clicking my fingers when I’m in a hurry haha.

    Loved to know a bit more about you! Well, I also have a serious sweet tooth and about drinking, people also make fun of me – I don’t like alcohol. I can drink some things, they normally have to be sweet like Bailey’s, but I prefer not. I never ate strawberry with pasta! But the tooth thing you are right – I also carry a tooth brush with me. The scary doll you should show here, I am curious! Hope you have a lovely week!

  • Hillory Renkema

    Awe totally loved this post girl!! I think quirks that people have are the best things about them. And they’re always so unique to every individual!




  • Strawberries with pasta is an unusual combo indeed but I feel like I need to try it now.

    I also carry a toothbrush and toothpaste and brush often throughout the day! That doll must be pretty scary! I would love to see it but won’t want it next to my bed!

  • This was such a great way to get to know you, girl! I’ve never heard of eating strawberries and pasta before, but I can’t say I wouldn’t be willing to at least try it and see how it tastes. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great rest of the week!




  • Haha! This is fun! Love this post.

  • Oh I loved reading this post! Those little facts are what makes us who we are at the end of the day 🙂 I felt related with the point about having a serious sweet tooth, haha! i could also eat sweets all day if it was possible! The strawberry and pasta fact was something I never heard before 😮 I’m kind of tempted to give it a try lol just out of curiousity!


  • I also wear socks to bed! Although sometimes I wake up with just one on or I’ve managed to kick both off during the night 🙂 xx


  • Katarina

    Amazing idea. I think I will write about it too!


  • I also have a sweet tooth, but never thought of eating strawberries with pasta. Sounds like an interesting food combo. Wishing you a great day. xx
