i was wondering if this is a weird way to hold the pick or if it will hurt me in the long run, it seems to work ok for me but i wanted to get other opinions:

i've been playing a year now and just realized that i hold it kind a differntly with the tip of the pick kinda slanted towards the head stock
You should be fine. I wouldn't choose to hold the pick like that, because the tip can't engage the strings like I prefer, but I don't see any reason why it can't work if you like it.
