I hope it’s not too late to say Happy New Year although now is the end of the first month of 2017. Time flies huh? I am also turning 27, the second stage of my late 20’s period. God I feel old. I feel tired. I feel stressed out. I feel moody sometimes. I’m being dramatic aren’t I?
Anyways, it’s just overwhelming (in my head) that I am now 27 (o.k. not yet but I will be). I remember being 7-8 years old screaming at the top of my lungs “Son of a B****!” because I heard it everywhere when I was growing up. I thought it was a o.k. to say it but later on I found that it’s not o.k. to shout profanities – even if it’s just for fun.
Now though profanities is what I say on a daily basis. F*** is just another word to me. When I was in school, I would not dare say that word because it sounded so mean. But my classmates would shout it out anyways because I think that sorta made them feel cool and manly. I just say that word now to voice out my frustration and surprise (and even excitement sometimes).
So what’s the point of this post?
Well the point is, people change and grow as they move along in life. When I was younger, I was more unfazed about things surrounding me. I focused on me a lot and I believed that profanities were really unnecessary. However, now I realize the importance of profanities when you’re growing up. If you can’t release your frustrations by punching someone in the face, you can cuss them.
Honestly, I thought I would be immune to cussing but I realized that the years I spent away from my family, stressed out by studying, working and loving, left me with this need to curse. It was sort of a transition process for me from being this naive and innocent kid to a growing adult. It sorta was (or is) a stamp for me that – Hey! I sorta have gone through speech puberty.
I’m still surprised at how easily curses fall from my tongue nowadays – like water from a fountain – just streaming from my uncensored mouth. I remember back in the days how I would feel bad for saying out a mean word but now, saying a bad word isn’t as bad as corruption, racism, sexism, bigotry, murder etc.
here’s to a more racy and provocative year!
(And hopefully more posts LOL)
