I recently completed a 10 day blogging challenge that I found on Pinterest. Even as I was writing my posts for that challenge, I was searching for the next one to complete. Sometimes I just need a little push to come up with something at least somewhat interesting to say. I mean, let’s be honest … I don’t lead an overly glamorous or exciting life. So sometimes I need a little help coming up with things people might actually want to read about.
As you may remember, I didn’t do the 10 day challenge in 10 days. I make an effort to update this blog every day, but I like to stick to my daily formula. Because of this, I obviously have to spread out specific topics so they fall into the “right” category. (And yes, I realize how crazy this probably sounds to most people. It’s cool, though. This is just who I am.)
Anyway, I found another blogging challenge on Pinterest recently that was exactly what I was looking for. This is a 30 day blogging challenge, but many of the topics were a little more interesting than just “show your readers what’s in your purse/wallet.” There are a few topics that are pretty basic, but I still liked this one more than some of the others I came across.
This week’s topic: Weird Things You Do When You’re Alone
I don’t know how “weird” some of these things are, but I’ll share what immediately came to mind.
- I like to eat spoonfuls of Nutella right out of the jar. And not just a small spoonful … It has to be pretty massive. I always stand in the kitchen and eat it over the sink. I’m not sure why I do that. I am sure why I eat humongous spoonfuls of Nutella, though … Because it’s fucking amazing!
- I will sometimes turn music up pretty loud and sing, dance, or both. This isn’t that weird since I’ll do it in front of Eric sometimes too, but I get really into it when I’m alone. It’s pretty embarrassing.
- I practice different facial expressions in the mirror. (I’m pretty sure this one qualifies as weird!) I’m incredibly unphotogenic, so I often practice smiling as though I were taking a picture so I can remember how my face feels when it looks “right.” I think I also do it out of habit since I used to be pretty involved with acting in plays … It’s definitely helpful when you want to determine the best way to get a specific emotion across.
Those are probably the strangest (or at least most embarrassing!) things I do when I’m home alone. I mean, if I’m home alone I’m usually watching TV or movies, writing, reading, playing around on the computer (I can easily lose hours to Pinterest and other equally addictive sites), and/or listening to music. I guess I’m pretty boring (at least when it comes to what I do when I’m alone).
