Day 16: Overused Words

I talk a lot, ask anyone who knows me. I think I’ve gotten better at it in the past few years but overall I’m a chatty person.

16. A word you overuse

This could be any number of words. Or phrases, even. It was a little beyond me, introspection-wise, since I say a lot of things a lot of times. I decided the best route to take was to consult my friends and see what they thought of what I say, especially since they hear me talk all the time.

What is it, Love?

Thanks, I hate it

I’m tired
Thanks, I hate it


I was hoping that by adding the repetition, it would add to the exhaustion and the monotony the speaker seems to feel. What’s funny to me is that a lot of these phrases are things I say in humor, but when they’re taken out of context and arranged this way, there’s an agony that’s added. Very interesting!

Will I ever catch up? Who knows. We’re nearing the end of April and I’m what, 10 days behind? Regardless if I make the April 30th deadline, I plan on seeing this challenge through and continuing to post until I’m done. After that though, I think I have a solid schedule that I would like to stick to and post regularly.
