A Bit of an Update

I know I promised myself to keep updating this site but every time I jot down random thoughts I fail to organize them into an actually worth-reading note. They are just too random and generally not lengthy enough to be covered, nevertheless, the way they are makes them interesting.

This story was written on Mar. 18 by me.
It’s just fascinating to think about the fact that every individual of us speaks a certain yet very distinct, fully personalized pattern of language, and have an unintentional formulation of choice of words. As far as I know, this happens in people speaking their native language, as well as foreign languages.
