Is this (begin of) sentence correct ?

I know that I sometimes act in a glib way but ...

I'm not sure of glib and of act

<edit> maybe do things instead of act? </edit>
  • Are you sure you want to use the word 'glib' at all? Glib usually refers to a way of speaking not a way of acting. I mean, it can refer to actions, but it's just much more common in reference to speaking.

    What are you aiming for by using the word glib? Do you want to convey that you act in a nonchalant manner? Perhaps that word can be used instead.
    In that case, you can always keep it simple and say, "I know that sometimes I act like I don't care but..." :)
