12 Reasons I'm Not Cool

I saw this post originally on an amazing blog named Dorkface and thought it was hilarious, so I decided to share with the internet all of the reasons why I'm not cool. Hopefully you will relate, if not then try not to judge me too hard. 
1. I make references to Lord Of The Rings/Harry Potter/The Avengers/Sherlock/Pokemon daily. Sometimes multiple times within the space of an hour. Seriously.
2. I don't like the taste of coffee. At all. Unless it's heavily weighed down by a ton of sugar and chocolate flavouring.
3. I have more books than friends. (Although in my opinion that is still cool)
4. I use Harry Potter spells in daily life. Sometimes with wand action depending on what's nearby (usually my phone or TV remote).
5. I cannot take a good selfie. Plus I really hate that word. Selfie. It's just annoying.
6. I spend more time with my cat than I do people.
7. I have to match my socks. I wish I was wild enough to go crazy and wear that pineapple print sock with the leopard print one, but I just can't do it.
8. I call people 'noob' if they're annoying me. Like seriously, is this 2008?
9. I am extremely socially awkward. Extremely. I even get nervous if people tweet me.
10. I still watch SpongeBob Squarepants. And I laugh at it.
11. I find fictional puns hilarious, especially if they're bad.
12. I'm so pale that most cosmetics companies don't do foundation shades light enough for my skin. Plus I can't catch a tan to save my life.

So there you have it: 12 reasons why I'm not cool. This post is obviously just a bit of fun and it was hilarious to sit down with my boyfriend and think up reasons why the two of us were uncool.
