Est-ce que je peux dire " Je m'assois mais tu t'assieds"?

Must one pick one way for an entire essay, or paragraph or sentence? Or can one mix them up freely?

This relates to:
Conjugate reflexive verb s'asseoir in Le Présent (present tense) -

Bonjour Jane !

Well, I would say it's a bit weird to mix them up, especially because one is considered slightly more elegant (assieds) than the other (assois).
It would be like mixing American and British spellings in the same essay: not a complete horror, but it would make your essay feel a bit inconsistent...

I hope that answers your question!
À bientôt !
