8 Things You Do That Everyone Else Does
We all would like to think we’re unique individuals. Our own way of doing and looking at things set us apart from the rest. You have your own hopes, dreams, and aspiration. You have your own passions, hobbies and little quirks that you do that makes you well, you.
However, there are certain quirks that you’re embarrassed to confess to. Why is that? Probably because you think you’re the only ones that do them. NEWSFLASH: you’re not. In some ways, you’re just like everybody else. Not in the sense that you need to sleep and eat in order to survive, but in the sense that you share an experience with everyone else. It’s what makes you human. It’s part of the circle of life, or something like that.
If you happen to do any of these things, congratulations. You’re like everyone else. Stuff like:
1. You feel your phone vibrations in your pocket even if your phone didn’t vibrate in the first place
This ALWAYS happens. You’ll feel all excited getting a text from your crush, hopefully a “what you doing” or a “I wanna sex you up” text. But nope. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It’s the universe’s way of telling you that you suck.
2. When a sad song comes on in the car radio, you look out the window and pretend you’re in a music video.
This is your moment dammit. And you’ll be damned if someone takes this away from you. Sometimes, looking at the window isn’t enough. You sing along complete with arm movements and tears. You remember all the people who hurt you and how it hurts to be alone.
3. You set your alarm earlier than necessary and add some succeeding alarms so you can get more sleep.
When “maaga pa naman. Tulog pa’ko ng ten minutes” turns into sleeping for another hour and now you’re late for work because of who you are as a person. Why are you like this?
4. You still think the 90s was 10 years ago.
But it’s not. People who were born in the year 2000 are in high school. We’re closer to the year 2030 than we are to the year 2000. The first Harry Potter book came out 19 years ago. Fun fact: you’re old. And with that, you ponder your existence and your mortality. You reminisce the fun moments of your youth, and how those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
