Being Yourself

Two posts in one day? Apparently so. I just watched another very inspirational video, and I felt the need to share it as well. This a COMPLETE coincidence, but it's a video from Vi Hart, who was in the video from my earlier post.

On it's surface, this video is about ignoring negative comments on a YouTube video, but it's actually much deeper than that. This is another video about being yourself, and not caring what everyone else thinks. Something I know I have a problem with. I care way too much about what other people think.

This goes right along with my last post about wanting to be more "Me." It has further strengthened my resolve to be more authentic. I don't expect that this will happen right away, but I am going to try harder from now on to just "Be Myself."

Embracing Your Weirdness

I am weird. Deep inside I've always known this to be true. Yet on the outside I go to great lengths to be "Normal" when I'm in public. Why do I do this? I haven't figured it out yet.

Today Hank Green posted a video of a conversation he had with Vi Hart that discusses this very idea. Most non-nerdy people probably would have no idea who these people are, so if you don't, that's perfectly OK, it's the substance of their conversation that matters.

I am going to try to think of small ways to start being more "Me" in every day life. Maybe I should start wearing mismatched socks...

U Spel bad 7

YouTube is full of morons. Here's proof.

Intended words have been capitalized in bold.


This was supposed to be the word CRASH. I won't discuss what it looks like it might have been.


Why exactly would LINKS require a C?


This, children, is what will happen if YOU don't pay attention in school.


Making a joke about the DESTRUCTION of the English language would just be too easy.


I can't BELIEVE you spelled that this way. Actually, just forget that. I CAN believe it.


If you wouldn't RUSH, you wouldn't make these mistakes.


CONGRATULATIONS! You win the worst speller ever award!


I'm sorry, YOU'RE an idiot.


This BARELY qualifies as good spelling.


This seemingly correctly spelled word was supposed to have been the word CRONE. Please join me as I take a moment to weep for humanity's collective stupidity.


It doesn't take much of an INTELLECT to catch this misspelling.


This was part of a rude comment calling someone a "fat peace of ham." Obviously someone let a four year old onto YouTube.


You are the OPPOSITE of intelligent.


How could you miss this? (PUBLIC)


There is nothing SPECIAL about the way you spell.


This just made me laugh. (BLOG)


This is what happens when you type to fast. (HAPPY)


If I were you I'd keep my spelling "skills" PRIVATE until they actually become skills.


Is this a new Thundercats character? (CHEETAH)

i used to live in counniecut

What happened? Did the entire state disown you for butchering their name? (CONNECTICUT)
