Well my friends and I were having a discussion about improving our image, such as what dominos is doing with there new pizza commercials. And one thing that they said that annoys them about me is the way i speak. I have been told I talk as if I am reading out of a text book. I sound like a venture capitalist one wall street. I am just not using language that a normal 17 y/o should be using.

Am I just years ahead of everyone? Do people like me annoy the fuck out of you? Would using language like such annoy you if you had to listen to it everyday?

I am just feeling a bit down about this, b/c I speak like this everyday.

I don't know, do you sound pretentious? If so, then, well... kinda.

You know that sounds too harsh. Of course I could never judge without knowing you. Just be yourself and don't worry about others.

To be honest,

sometimes you use the wielded vocabulary, (often referring to political or economical matters). And..I do find it pretty annoying. It sounds kinda pretentious if you ask me.

But, just my opinion.

The only thing that I can see from what you post is that you try to use long words where a shorter word would suffice, and make unnecessary comparisons to events, and allusions to things that are somewhat similar to what you're saying. I don't know if this is just the strange way you were taught to speak, but it comes across as very unnatural and contrived. I could say "This class sucks, man", or I could say "This class is extensively boring and inextricably-placed; I can't get rid of it because nothing else works with my schedule. I wonder if this is the same malaise that the Puritans must have felt in their day-to-day activities". They both say the same thing but the second one is overly verbose. Maybe you are excellent in your studies, or maybe you give yourself too much credit, and that may make you come across as sophomoric.

Either way, try to learn the vernacular and be as trite as you can in your exclamations. That is, if you want to 'improve your image'. I don't know what you're like but I know those people who act distant and better than everyone else. Are they better than us? I don't know, and I don't care. They're obnoxious and nobody likes the air of superiority they give off, especially since they utterly fail to make friends because they're too concerned with keeping up their image of who-knows-what. Talking on the internet is one thing; I'm not nearly as eloquent in regular conversations, but I can definitely focus people on what I'm saying. It's never too late to develop a personality! :p

You don't have to change anything though, if that's not what your personality is like. Don't try to be someone you aren't.

I dont think your annoying for the way you talk, what i do find annoying is people who can not talk proper english and use one word to speak for several different things, I have always talked ahead of my age and i believe it shows maturity.. i used to be exactly the same way at 17. I realize some people don't like it as i saw it apparent to me but then again these people are mostly just jealous

Cannot*
"I" is capitalized.
You used "your" in the sense of "you're."
"English" is capitalized.
"Don't" is missing an apostrophe.
(There are more errors; these are the most apparent.)

Please, if you're going to talk about others not speaking proper English, don't post with so many errors in your post.

I mean eloquent speak is better than Cellphone speak, which is better than babyspeak, which is better than Shyriiwook (Language of the Wookiees). It just pisses me off when one doesn't answer a Yes/No Question with Yes/No. Its always Plausible/Inconclusive/I LOVE SCHOOL I hate them so much!!!

This is an excellent example that you can't please everyone. This is more a problem when you are younger. Eventually most people find their niche. My uncle spoke eloquently, but he was head of the agricultural department at Rutgers University, and was a world renown doctor who developed cures for rare bird diseases. Because he had proven himself to be brilliant, no one would have thought twice as to how he spoke. They simply listened and learned something.

Are you that sort of person, however. Over the years, we earn our stripes by our accomplishments. We prove ourselves by our works. Until then, humility is a good virtue.

Thinking of this over the last few hours has made me terribly sad and depressed, I have thought of myself as Aline with no friends and no one to stand by. Exactly why I have thought this idk, but I have not been able to sleep at all, bc of the crying. I feel that everyone hates me and that i have not a friend in the world and that the friends I do have just put up with me. All bc of this problem that has been addressed to me.

Everyone has a place in this world. Unfortunately, the majority are stupid. If you don't believe me, just remember when Orson Wells read War of the Worlds on radio, and all of New Jersey was running from the Martians. People will be cruel and stupid. It's their nature. Just be yourself and you will find your place. Besides, if you are smart you will eventually get a good job and be respected. Then you will see people come to you. Success is the best revenge.

OMG R U SRS 4REALZ MON ME IS GOOD IN ENGLISH!!!11111

I love how people that correct others do no know how to type themselves. It makes for a funny sight. What with pointing it out and all.

I don't think you're annoying for the way you talk, what I do find annoying is people who can not talk in proper English and also use one word to speak for several different things. I have always talked ahead of my age. and((You do not need this here you need a period. It is expressing two different statements.)) I believe it shows maturity...(need one more to make it look proper)I used to be exactly the same way at 17. I realize some people don't like it as I saw it apparent to me but then again these people are mostly just jealous.
That should be close to perfect. =3 I feel someone will be shocked I know proper Emaricanise Wording.

Yes, especially when it contains grammatical errors and makes you seem conceited.

Nope. Just use the language that you feel comfortable with. If other people's reaction is to feel bothered by vocabulary they don't know, perhaps that points to something about them.
