How Many Of These Typical Types Of Texters Do You Know?

How Many Of These Typical Types Of Texters Do You Know?

Texting is a modern day phenomenon. Gone are the days when we texted just in case of an emergency, or a quick shorthand message when we are running late. We no longer go to the custom texts in our SMS folder to forward a quick note.

We now live in the world of the developed texting style, emojis, instant photographs, and hashtags. It is a world of video messages, and clips of voice messages sent as text messages. It is spelling faux pas, ‘text-hand type’, and sexting. People break up and break down via text message!

Everybody develops their own style within this world, as it is now considered the norm to own a mobile phone. Not answering a text is equivalent to not calling someone back, except the time-frame is smaller because texts are so quick and easy.

You have to be careful not to get pigeon-holed with a certain type of texting, even though some do seem more fun than others (emojis!). Read ahead and see if you recognize these types of texters.

The Vocal Texter: People Who Only Send Voice Messages

    The wonderful discovery of sending voice messages as text messages has its perks. For example, if you want to get a lot of information out quickly, or need to document something to pass on ASAP.

    However, it can be a little embarrassing if you’re on a packed train and your mum needs to let you know she has press-starched your underpants, or something like that. You have been warned. Use your fingers people!

    The Emoji Enthusiast: People Who Only Use Emojis

      Okay, we get it, emojis are fun! However, you have to draw the line somewhere. Cute is cute, and emojis are… still emojis. Plus, there is a time and a place! If you otherwise have something to say, just say it. Pictures are fun sometimes, but we’re still adults.

      The Photo Freaks: People Who Always Send Lots Of Photos That You Aren’t Really All That

        Did you see that picture of your friends new baby… again?! A picture says a thousand words, unless you kind of want it to be quiet. While technology is breaking ground every day, and we love a visual update, keep the excessive images to yourself. Just because it entertains you, doesn’t mean it entertains everybody else.

        The Grammar Duds: People Who Always Fumble Their Words (To Our Amusement)

          We really rely on autocorrect too heavily. Perhaps we just get a bit excited in our busy lives, and don’t take time to double-check before we send. Whatever the case, there is a whole world of websites out there dedicated to the ‘slips-of-thumb’, otherwise known as ‘autocorrected to something bizarre and/or hysterical’.

          The Crazy Clowns: People Who Text-Laugh Way Too Much

            If you’re not into the LOL phenomenon, we can also appreciate the written laugh, also known as the old school ‘HA HA’. It will never really go out of technological fashion, but keep it to the appropriate length of humor. Otherwise, we might catch on to the fact that you’re faking it (even if we can never really be sure). 

            The Long-Winded Texters: People Who Say Way More Than You Bargained For

              It’s a toss up of what is worse between the ones who say too much when you don’t want them to text and those who say what you don’t wish to hear when you do want them to text. The ‘too much information’ text is always a bummer. Text messages very easily become essays these days, and whether its a break-up text or a hefty reply to an attempted dismissal, we hope the long-winded texter doesn’t check in too often!

              How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

              How to Quit Your Boring Life and Start Living an Interesting One

              Think you have a boring life?

              The definition of boring is dull or not interesting. Maybe you’ve been doing the same thing and living the same life for too long, or maybe your daily routine is limiting your growth and happiness. Whatever your reason is, the following list of 20 things can definitely make any day more interesting. Some of them are silly, while some are more meaningful, so hopefully just reading the list makes your life less boring and sparks your creativity.

              Let’s dive in the list to quit your boring life and start living an interesting (and meaning) one!

              1. Channel Your 7-Year-Old Self

              What would he or she want to do right now? Color? Paint? Run around outside? Play dress up? Eat with your hands? Play that instrument hiding in the back of your closet that you haven’t touched in years?

              Just because you’re a grown up doesn’t mean any of this stuff will be less enjoyable than you remember it. Give yourself permission to play.

              2. Go Play with Kids

              Speaking of little kids, if you have your own or access to any (in a non-creepy way, like they’re your niece or your best friend’s kid, you get the idea) go play with them!

              They didn’t create an entire show called Kids Say The Darndest Things because kids aren’t hilarious. They also keep things so simple, and we can really stand to be reminded of this and stop allowing ourselves to get bogged down in boring details.

              3. Order a Hot Dog

              While you’re eating it, Google: “What’s in a hot dog?” You decide whether or not you want to finish it.

              4. For the Ladies: Wear Your Sexiest Lingerie Under Your Work Clothes

              Your “little secret” will leave you feeling anything but boring all day!

              5. Play Cell Phone Roulette

              You’ll need at least one buddy for this. Scroll through the contacts in your phone, stop on a random one and call the person.

              You could spark an incredible catch up session or be incredibly awkward. Neither are boring.

              6. Fill out a Pack of Thank-You Cards

              Give them to random people who probably don’t get thanked too often for doing what they do ever day.

              Ideas: police officers, librarians, servers, baristas, cab drivers, sanitation workers, teachers, people behind any check out counter, receptionists, your friends, the guy at the falafel stand, etc.

              7. Sign up for a Class in Something You’ve “Always Wanted to Do”, or Something That Makes You Really Uncomfortable

              Ideas: pole dancing, salsa lessons, improv, pottery, cooking, knitting (yup, there are classes for this, too!), karate, boxing, something techy like the workshops they run in Apple stores, get Rosetta Stone and learn that language you’ve always wanted to speak, etc.

              What’s good about joining an interest class is that you will also meet new people!

              8. Interview Your Grandparents About Their Lives

              You can bet they’ve had some crazy experiences you probably never knew about.

              9. Get up on Stage at an Open Mic Night

              Whether you’re funny or not, get up on stage and just talk funny. And if you’re not, memorize a few of your favorite jokes and tell those!

              10. Do Something for Someone Else That You Wish Someone Would Do for You

              We all have a few ideas on this list. I promise you will feel amazing after and anything but bored.

              11. Start a DIY Project in Your Home

              It doesn’t have to be super complicated. If you need ideas, there’re plenty on Pinterest. Or you can also check out these 30 Awesome DIY Projects that You’ve Never Heard of.

              12. Plan a Weekend Trip or an All-Out Vacation

              This will give you something to look forward to.

              Even if you don’t have the time or money to go on a vacation, plan for a staycation, which is same fun and relaxing!

              13. People Watch

              Find a bench in a crowded area (centers of transportation like airports, bus stops and train stations are great for this!) and just observe.

              People are infinitely interesting.

              14. Eat Something You’ve Never Eaten Before

              Bonus points if it’s a random fruit or veggie.

              15. Dance

              You can get your friends together for a night on the town or just pull up a video on YouTube and bust a move from your own living room.

              If you’re feeling extra brave, you can even dance in public and get other people involved.

              16. Go to YOUTUBE and Search “Funny Pets” or “Funny Babies”

              This is also a great quickie ab workout as you will be laughing hysterically.

              17. Pick up a Book and Start Reading

              Check out the NY Times Best Sellers lists and grab a new book you can get lost in.

              18. Step Away from the Computer and Go Get Some Time with People You Care About in Real Life

              Facebook stalking doesn’t count as real social interaction. You can even share this post with your friends and vote on which one you’d like to do together!

              19. Check out a Museum You’ve Never Been to Before

              OK, depending on your interests, this one might actually be boring. If you love learning, art or different cultures though, this one is for you!

              20. Write a List of Things You Desire and Truly Want

              This is a great way to help you figure out the real reason why you’re feeling bored about your life. Maybe you haven’t really done things that you truly enjoy? Maybe what you’ve wanted to do all the time has been left behind?

              Think about the list of things you really want to do, and ask yourself why you aren’t doing these things (yet). Then start taking your first step to make what you want happen.

              Now go make your life interesting and live your dream life!
