The other day (like a month or two ago), I was watching that episode of New Girl where everyone “outs” everyone else’s “pogos.”
Not sure what a pogo is?
So basically, it’s that annoying thing (or those annoying things) you always do that your roommates talk about behind your back.
It got me thinking – what are my pogos?
I am a huge fan of comfort when I’m home. So basically, unless I’m about to leave the house again in a short period of time, whatever I’m wearing is coming off and my yoga pants are going on. Sometimes, in fairness to myself, I do this to prevent wrinkling and/or stretching out whatever I am wearing when I sit cross-legged on my couch. Because that’s how I almost always sit on my couch.
So, when I’m home, I tend to look like a bit of a hobo…a comfortable, spandex-ish-clad hobo.
Look, if I lived by myself, I probably wouldn’t even bother with pants, so you’re welcome.
SIDENOTE: I don’t know why I felt compelled to give each of my pogos a “clever” name, but I started and I’m not backing down, so you’re going to have to deal with it now.
For a girl who hates musicals as much as I do, this may be shocking, but I do have a tendency to sing my way through my day. Whether I’m belting out a song I can’t get out of my head or simply making up songs to go along with whatever I’m doing, it’s happening.
For example, while I am making snacks, I may start singing something like this:
(Sung to the tune of the Spider-Man theme song)
Makin’ snacks! Makin’ snacks!
They’re delicious, they won’t bite back!
Are they healthy? Listen, friend.
Beça’s snacks are the living end.
Look out! Andrea’s makin’ snaaaacks.
….What can I say? I’d apologize, but it’s fun.
As a Zumba instructor, I am constantly either learning or creating new choreography to use in my classes. So that means that I am often practicing it. And by often, I mean often. And while I’m practicing, I’m usually either singing or listening to the song. So you might hear the same song like, I don’t know, 10 or 15 times in a row.
Speaking of hearing things over and over again, I also have a tendency to latch onto a few favourite movies and put them on in the background while I’m living my life. And sometimes I will play the same one more than once in a day.
SIDENOTE: God, now that I’m listing these off, I feel really annoying.

I talk to my dogs. Sometimes I talk to them in weird voices and each of them gets their own weird voice. I’m going to try not to delve into that one too far because I still have limits on how much of myself you really get to read about.
Lesson learned: IT COULD BE WORSE. I think I’m a pretty bearable person to live with. I could be messy or have bad personal hygiene or something. But I’m pretty organized and I always smell good, I swear!
What are your pogos? Sharing time!
