I will quote Neil Gaiman, the speech that he had given to a bunch of graduates from the University of the Arts in 2012.
“I learned to write by writing. I tended to do anything as long as it felt like an adventure, and to stop when it felt like work, which meant that life did not feel like work.”
Life should always be an adventure when its not its time to leave and make stupid shit up along the way. So in this journey called life I have decided to play around with words that make life a happier place for me.
Here are a few things I say frivolously in life, where I don’t actually mean what I say at times. I think I’m making myself sound more horrible than I actually am. But take a look at them, I guarantee you’ll be more confused than before. I don’t think anyone will ever understand me unless they too have gone through some of the things I have.
Lost: Kept so safely that you can’t find it.
I think we can all agree we all have a tendency to something. I know in heart of heart, that if I just look hard enough I’d find it. But when you need it, you won’t find it. Like socks a typical example. The thing you see every day, but can’t actually place where you saw it.
I won’t ever agree anything is not lost.It’s just at that point of time that it cant be found and be found when we dont need it. I’ll give you another example, you drop your pen behind the bed. You saw it fall, you leaned over to see it fallen right there. You don’t bother to pick it up, you think to yourself *hmm, when I need it, I’ll know where to start looking* and then you get back to living your life.
This is called living in organised chaos. Just like our country, no one knows how it runs, but it does and it does a pretty good job.
Fell: You didn’t drop it. It fell.
So hear me out, then you will understand me. Since I was a child, I have always been clumsy. I would walk into the wall, stub my toe innumerable times more than you ever can ever imagine, break plates and glasses. But one thing I won’t take the blame for is when a mug breaks and it isn’t my fault.
Now imagine yourself sitting in the restaurant and, you have this glass of water in front of you. You are talking to your friend, both of you laugh, and while in a blink of an eye, the glass breaks. Both of you know, it wasn’t you. The end. You’ll get it once, you’ll experience it.Abrupt, yes. that’s how I like to do it.
Funny: You’re weird
There was a meme I saw on the internet the other day.I am the nicest rudest person I know. Which is me. I am so mean, I wonder how I have friends at times. Since I can’t be meaner, therefore, I decided to devise a sweet sounding word for my cover-up.
This word is called ‘you’re funny’. So when I say it, people think they are funny.(Obviously, why wouldn’t they.) And I’m just giving them an *evil smile* while laughing in my head.
I should create a hashtag called #makingbullshitsince1996
So if you think along the lines as me, leave a comment so we can talk. What say? I cant be the only one? Or can I??
