WAIT HOLD THE FUCK UP

IS ‘MRS’ JUST MR’S 

LIKE BELONGING TO MR

OMG

Mr comes from the French monsieur, which I think literally translates as ‘my lord’ and basically just means master, and Mrs comes from maistre which is the feminine form of master, so actually—for once—no.

This was an extremely relevant comment and I thank you for educating me

Have you ever seen something completely baffling but also technically excellent? I can’t believe how well this person edited Jane into Treasure Planet so she and Captain Amelia could fight the bad guy from Osmosis Jones. “Man,” I say to myself, “I could never make this bizarre music video about beloved animated characters becoming ghosts.”

More bragging input: in many cases, people don't respond to "I'm better than that person" with "I'm better than you or that person". It is just not people's first reaction. There are differences between bragging and being excited about things though. If it's someone you're excited about, there are ways to share. But unless it is relevant, people will see bragging about how smart you are as pompous. The best way to brag is to find situations to put your intelligence to good use and show it to ppl

Hi anon, thanks for the input, though you’ve confused me a little!

Where did you get the “I’m better than that person” thing from? Was it my analogy about the popular girl? Or perhaps it was from my friend’s post?

If you’re talking about my friend’s post, he specifically stated that he only does that with friends and that they know that it’s not him being an ass, and I understand that well: going around and saying your better than others to random people who don’t understand your intent is a dick thing to do.

Also I’m not sure you understood the reason I was thinking about sharing my IQ? If I ever did share it it would mostly be a self-confidence thing, because I have pretty low self-confidence and sometimes I either feel like an idiot or feel like I come off as one (and I don’t want people thinking I’m one). Though I still probably won’t post it ‘cause I’ll feel like an asshole.

Bonus Fun Fact: I have no idea how to put my intelligence to good use to show it to people because it’s not something I can show through academics.

Apologies if I misinterpreted anything you meant, anon, and thanks again for sharing your input uwu

aha, maybe one day I’ll brag, maybe one day

I just get nervous about it ‘cause I don’t want other people to feel like I’m trying to put them down. I guess it’s because when I think of bragging and stuff like that I think of the stereotypical popular girl bragging about how amazing they are.

Naw, unless you directly call something out as “I am better than person/group because they are bad at the thing I’m good at” you really are not putting anyone down with your self-praising. When you want to brag focus on the You, not the Them. If people are putting you down because you want to feel good about yourself, they are the assholes, not you.

Of course I’m a bit hypocritical here. I’m always talking about how much better I am than other people, but that’s because I try to keep people in my life who are willing to say they are better than me (Or at least think it, not everyone has to be viking mead hall levels of boastful). Basically, I might say I’m “better” than someone, but I invite and expect them to say the same thing back to me.

What I’m getting at is that there are a ton of ways to feel proud of yourself that don’t ever cross the line of being a dickbag. And even if you do cross that line by mistake, just remind yourself that was never the goal and apologize to the hurt party and, in your case, treat it as a learning experience.

ahhh thank you uwu
