"There's 2 types of people in the world" challenge

I wrote a post here 2 months ago. I didn't think it was that long.
Since I finally sat down and decided to write here, I came up with a challenge to put myself in some of the categories in "there's only 2 types of people" sayings. The rule is that I have to put myself in one category even if I'm in the middle. So I really have to think about myself and decide which one I am more. I did something similar in my post Typical girl vs. me so check that out too. Let's go.
  • wearing a bra vs. not wearing a bra - wearing it
I can't understand girls/women who can't wait to take off their bra. I sometimes fall asleep with it and don't mind at all. I also feel really weird whenever I'm not wearing it (like only when I'm in my PJs).
  • manicured nails vs. non-existent manicure - manicured nails
I love my nails and nail art and all that goes with nails. I love trying out different shapes, painting them and just playing with nail polishes. Even plain painted nails look 100% prettier to me.
  • girl who wears pink vs. girl who wears black - black
Not that I don't wear colors, but pink really isn't my color. But for clothes in general, I prefer black and dark colors.
  • tidy room vs. messy room - tidy room
I like to have everything in its place and so I would know where something is. My room is quite small so I can't afford to be messy. And it's seriously not pretty to see a messy room.
  • ponytail vs. hair falling down - hair falling down
I wear ponytails only when I'm working out (so never) or when my hair is kinda greasy. I also sometimes put it in a bun or ponytail when I'm at a concert.
  • one alarm vs. 10 alarms and snooze button - one alarm
I get up at the first buzz of my phone and I never fell asleep if I know I really have to go somewhere or do something. I immediately get up and my day starts.
  • eating pizza crust vs. not eating pizza crust - not eating pizza crust
I'll eat it if the pizza is fresh and the dough is still soft. However, if I'm eating the same pizza next day, I'll most probably leave the crust. Also, my mom really loves the crust so I usually leave it to her.
  • sending multiple texts in a row vs. sending one text - sending one text
It depends on which platform I'm using, but I send multiple texts in only one and that's if I'm having problems with keyboard or something else. I get pretty annoyed with multiple texts.
  • being late vs. being on time - being on time
I'm actually early in 99% of cases. I like to calculate some extra time in case something happens in traffic or something like that, so I'm usually at least 10 minutes early (more like half an hour).
  • using upper numbers on keyboards vs. using numbers on the right - using numbers on the right
I don't know if I ever used numbers on top of the keyboard for really numbers. I got used to this arrangement and I can't go any other way.
  • cutting sandwich in the middle vs. cutting sandwich diagonally - cutting it diagonally
I actually never cut my sandwiches or toasts, but if I did it, I would do it diagonally cause a toaster that we had 1000 years ago had it like that so I thought that was the only proper way.
  • iOS vs. Android - Android
I never used iOS (so an iPhone) and I immediately went from those old phones to Android smart phone so I'm so used to it by now I can't imagine using anything else.
  • full inbox vs. empty inbox - empty inbox
I read all my messages and emails so there's always some order. I don't mean empty as I have to delete everything, but there are no unread or unanswered messages.
  • ketchup on fries vs. ketchup beside fries - ketchup on fries
I really don't care and it depends actually what I'm eating, but I'm more likely to put it on my fries. Dipping fries with a fork in ketchup always ends up with a fry stuck in ketchup and empty fork.
  • files in folders vs. files everywhere - files in folders
When it comes to my computer, I'm really organized person. I love putting everything in designated folder and it makes my life so much easier. I can't stand desktop full of random icons.
  • lunch at 1 p.m. vs. breakfast at 1 p.m. - lunch at 1 p.m.
I go to sleep really late and I get up really early. I usually sleep only 4 to 6 hours, but I'm fine so far. I also hate to waste the day with sleeping in late so I'll definitely eat lunch by 1 p.m.
  • toiler paper towards wall vs. toilet paper outwards - toilet paper outwards
Since I've been raised with toilet paper always being outwards, it's normal that's the only way I can see it now. The other direction looks really weird to me and I can't use it like that.
  • breaking chocolate into pieces vs. biting chocolate like a sandwich - breaking it into pieces
Whenever I eat chocolate, I almost never eat alone so I can't just bite it. Also, I never even thought of it. There are marked lines and rows and I'm going to use them.
  • eating in bed vs. eating at the table - eating at the table
I can't remember if I ever ate in the bed something else than chocolate or candy. Even then I keep this food on the side table or floor and I'm never lying down, but sitting. No, I don't eat in bed.
  • Batman vs. Superman - Batman
For some unknown reason, I feel very much in love with Batman. I love those movies (yes, even those that are considered crappy). Don't know why, but I'm totally a Batman girl.

I could have done more, but 20 seemed like a good number for this post not to be too long. Also, if you want to see any other category, just comment below and I'll either answer it or make a part 2 of this. Since this is a challenge, I'll tag some people, but anyone is welcome to join in. If you write this list, send me a link so I can read it.
I just Googled "two types of..." and chose some. You can do these or make up any other that you want.

I tag (don't feel obligated to do this & choose any x vs. x categories you can think of):
That's all :) Comment which categories you're in :)

My mom is too old...

Hi.
Quick info in the beginning. My mom is 52 years old now. I'm 22. OK, now I can start.
My mom and me had the same fashion taste for quite a long time. We wear each other's clothes and we are perfect shopping duo for most times. However, she recently started to change her wardrobe because "she's too old for this". I feel stupid for even needing to say this, but here it is: anyone can wear whatever they want. Now that we know that, I also have to say that I'm a firm believer in dressing according to your age. I don't like seeing granny in mini skirts, for example. Thankfully, my mom feels the same. But it never struck me that she's now 'that older lady'. I still see her in her early 40s (she was about 35-40 when I started noticing people around me and when I transferred more into her world from being a baby). She threw away her shorts and now that we have summer going on here, she needed some light clothing. I offered my shorts and she refused as they are too short (my shorts come to mid thigh area). I was so surprised that she said she is "too old". I've been with her for 22 years and, I guess, I stopped thinking about it. Also, another thing why I don't see her as too old is because she honestly has the better figure than 22-year-old me. I'm writing this now cause the thought of my mom being old was never on my mind before she said so. Although I'm aware that she is not actually old, for me, 50s are the start of the last part of life. And that scares the sh*t out of me. I know I'm overthinking this, but I can't get it out of my head. My mom thinks she is old. And she will always be 40 to me. She'll always be in her best age, looking the best she ever did.
Anyway, not to bore you with my mom not wearing shorts anymore, I'll end it with a question. How do you see your parents? Are they getting older in your eyes? This is so weird to me. Haha.

"Typical girl" vs. me

You all know how there are some things 'typical girls' do, some ways 'typical girls' look or act and there's always that "Am I the only girl who...?". Of course not. I don't even know if most girls are 'typical girls', but I'm here to compare how 'typical girls' and I are similar or different.
Note: I'm not saying doing 'typical' things is wrong or bad.


  • long time getting dressed/putting on make-up
Of course I have my moments and if I really know I have the time, I'll put on my pants and then chill for about 20 minutes before putting on my shirt and this can last for 3 hours. But in general, it takes me about 10 minutes from being in bed sleeping to being fully ready to go out (and yes, I did count the time once and it took me 7 minutes from the morning alarm to me locking the doors behind me).
  • eating only salads
To be honest, I don't think I eat a lot, but I'll definitely have a burger over salad any time. I do love salads and all that healthy stuff, but people who are too careful about what they eat because "they could gain weight" are ridiculous to me.
  • wearing only heels
There are actually women who wear heels 24/7, but most of all you have to admire them for being able to do all the stuff  a person has to do in those shoes. I love wearing heels, but I'm also super happy in sneakers, boots, flip flops or anything else.
  • not getting those hand dirty
I usually have very long and painted nails so they're my biggest problem, but nothing a good pair of working gloves couldn't protect. I often help in the woods cutting and transporting trees, mowing lawns, painting fences, feeding domestic animals and so on.
  • loving only pink
You must know by now that girls do wear other colors too, right? Well, I think I own only one pink shirt which I rarely wear anyway. The last time I was properly wearing pink was about 10 years ago while my mom was still dressing me.
  • overthinking
Now, here I'm definitely a typical girl. I spend hours thinking about some stupid stuff. Don't even get me started on guys and all of those situations. I honestly wish I could reduce my overthinking and to be honest, I think I did quite an improvement in regards to, let's say, 3 or 5 years ago, but it's still not there where I would want it to be.

There could be more stuff on the list (duh!), but I remembered these on the top of my head.

Today: 5.7.2017.

Doing: I'm currently on vacation so I'm enjoying myself - swimming, eating, watching TV, the usual, but without a worry on my mind
Mood: great!! - actually could be better, but I decided not to complain this week at least as I'm at a beautiful place, having a peaceful and fun time
Favorite person: my brother
Thinking about: getting a job next week and deciding which one I'll pick
Missing: going out - I wrote that one last time too, but I really wanna go out and party!
Loving: that I finished my college year recently and now I'm free as a bird
Hating: sun burns I got so I can barely walk
New discovery: you can get blisters from sun burn too - I thought this kind of blisters is possible only when you actually burn yourself (like on a stove or fire - done it both)
Listening to: Luis Graziatto - Something just like this (sax cover) - honestly check out his channel, these covers are touching my soul (he did a cover for Despacito too...)

Personal hygiene

Hello. It's definitely been too long since I was active here. I have so many ideas for posts and I'm going to get back to some schedule of mine here. Not to have a long, intro...
I'm not going to talk about my personal hygiene (cause why would I), but I'm going to talk about other people and how it is viewed. To make this clear, I'm going to talk about why is it important, for example, for me that my friends have a good personal hygiene. It's not. I could totally end this post here, but I see so many people raging about somebody else having a bad personal hygiene. I honestly don't care. It shouldn't bother me if my friends didn't brush their teeth, if they didn't shower after gym, if they didn't wash their hands and so on. Their hygiene is their own and, unless they're serving me meal with hands that have been in mud, I don't care what they do with their body. Maybe I'm just more tolerant to odors and filth than other people, but I'm not disgusted by these.
I'll give you just one example of my hygiene. I don't wash my hands before every meal. Shock! I know. If I'm serving somebody meal with my hands (e.g. a sandwich or something like that), I'll always wash my hands because of them. But if I'm eating alone, I can plant flowers in my garden and go and eat with those same hands. I'm not a germaphobe and I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with me. If anything, my lifestyle (sounds like I live in dirt and never shower which is not true haha) made me more resistant to germs and illnesses.
This also bugs me when people keep their small children away from all dirt. I'm not saying you should place your new born kid in mud and leave it there for a week, but as soon as they're ready (I'm not sure so I'll say few weeks/months?), let them be. They can go around on the dusty floors and they can get dirty and nothing will happen.
Back to my story. I don't get why people comment on how some people didn't shower or how they have yellow teeth. That information doesn't concern you in any way. If you're repulsed by the smell or something else, just move away.
P.S. I also don't have a problem with eating food that fell on the floor (and not following the 5 second rule which is, by the way, total bulls*it).
What are your opinions on this topic? I'd really like to know since it's a bit controversial...
