This post is really going to be really special because you’re now currently reading thoughts of mine that have been running wild through my brain over the past two weeks.
Honestly I dont think Im doing a good job at that since I’m typing this crappy, pseudo-philosophical post and thinking a few people might bother reading it. Just like how I force people to listen to jokes.
But oh well.
(Btw “Oh well.” is the phrase of the week this week. If you think about it, it can be applied any oh-well way. Okay maybe not there. But you get it.)
I decided to stop typing in brackets because I conveniently decided to elaborate more on it.
It’s like someone hurling snarl remarks at you, like “youre as big as the sun”. Then you reply “Oh well.”
1. It shuts them up. (If it fuels them to continue, just keep replying the same thing. If it gets overwhelming, it’s a severe case of bully. Please seek attention asap.)
2. It ends the conversation, giving off the feeling “Okay man you win, Im not going to care enough to argue with you.”
[sidenote: nobody said I was as big as the Sun. Hahahahah.]
It can be used in another context as well, like maybe if a teacher comes in with a pop quiz. With the “oh well” attitude, you can never go wrong.
1. I will rock this poop.
2. I will flunk this poop.
Both have their pros – determination VS open-mindedness. You choose.
And if you happen to flunk it, oh well. Do better next time.
And if you rocked it, oh well. Get over yourself.
LOLOLOLOL IM TALKING RUBBISH. OH WELL.
And of course last but not least, “oh well” if used appropriately can show how da4 fang1 you actually are. When you’re not, really.
I think the anger/angst within me is boiling up to an unacceptable degree which isnt exactly a good thing. :(
Many little events happened over the course of the month already and lets just say they werent the happiest.
First thing Im going to blog about is the issue of PMS vs Pissed Off.
I think we all know what PMS means?
But if you dont, according to urban dictionary:
The transformation of woman to beast, occurring once every month. Similar to the werewolf, a PMSing woman becomes a dog-like creature capable only of eating, sleeping, barking, annoying the neighbors, and leaving messes that she expects you to clean up.
PMS occurs more often in women who:
- Are between their late 20s and early 40s
- Have at least 1 child
- Have a family history of depression
- Have a past medical history of a mood disorder
Now that we’ve got a clearer idea, I think there is a very thin line separating “PMS” and “Pissed Off”.
PMS is usually caused by hormonal imbalances lah, and of course when you describe someone who is “PMS-ing” you most probably dont even know her monthly… thing is approaching.
And from your point of view they probably have no reason for being angry and all scary, unless they’re ticked off by someone previously or something.
I mean there are days where you just wake up feeling grumpy as ever and you question your existence or you question everyone else’s existence or you just hate life and want to sleep your day away.
But there are days you wake up feeling happier than anything else and you bounce your way to school or something with the sun smiling down at you with its incredibly straight sun rays. Then you take a deep breath and inhale the scent of the flowers swaying to the wind by the roadside and thank whoever who created them and you just go to school happy. Basically you’re just happy and you don’t even know why.
Then when the east meets the west I don’t know what happens. It’s like the grumpy being starts being grumpy and you know when you’re grumpy you tend to hate happy (= zi-high = hyperactive = a little annoying = noisy = super annoying) people who don’t seem to stop talking then they just explode. Or just seethe with anger. Permanently.
But if you think about it the noisy happy people aren’t in fault.
Only if they do something to piss the grumpy people off will they be at fault.
If not they really didn’t do anything to deserve an outburst of emotions/the grumpy one screaming at them. Really.
To avoid confusing situations like that when you don’t even know who’s at fault truly…
If you know you aren’t in the best of moods today, keep emotions in check! It’s hard to pretend to be happy when you’re not (even though a lot of people do that) but it’s really not necessary to black-face the whole world and scream at anyone who comes your way.
And of course… that also means getting over yourself. :)
Hahaha this brings me to the next point: Realize the world doesn’t revolve around you – you aren’t the only one with problems.
I’m sure there are point in times you just rant your butt off a social media platform – be it scolding your parents (which is really rude and horrible) or your siblings or your teacher (which is pretty rude) or your friends or your enemies or yourself.
I mean I do that sometimes hahah (not the scold parents/teachers/people-older-than-me part) but I try really hard to be subtle. Im not a keyboard warrior! Hahaha. Anyway theres nothing wrong using your personal social network accounts to vent your frustration – it’s your own right, and your own decisions to make, who cares about what others think?
Then the million-dollar question comes: why on earth do you need to vent your frustrations on an online platform when all 12938791296382 followers of yours can clearly see your tweets/posts pretty easily? I mean venting your frustration can take place in many forms – screaming at your neighbour, throwing a rock into your plasma TV, punching your pillow, writing in your diary… but why do it at a platform where you know people will read and kinda ask you about it?
(*disclaimer: this is my personal opinion! it isn’t a blanket rule lah.)
Simpleeeee – because people all like attention sometimes, really. As vain and bimbo-ish that sounds. It’s a fact of life. Some people like to be more flamboyant about getting attention, but some people aren’t that in-your-face about it. But everyone loves some kind of attention on them. Including you.
There’s really nothing wrong!! But you know you’ve reached the “GET-OVER-YOURSELF” level if you post attention-seeking things online just to get people to respond to you and offer a helping hand to pull you out of this misery.
Third issue… about height and weight.
Man, we all know I aint the tallest and skinniest person around.
AND DO YOU KNOW ALL THE INTERNAL CONFLICTS HAPPENING INSIDE ME (lol #insidejoke) when tall, lanky, slim people go around saying they’re fat?? DO YOU???? Like you know they’re the kind that is dangling precariously at the “(severely) underweight” category and they need to go on a diet. Then people like me are like ~!@#$%^&*()_+ HOW????? WHAT????? WHY??????
We all know people have their own definitions of skinny, fat, slim, moderate, okay, etc… but when you’re interacting with the rest of the world, its better to stick by the world standard definition of fat/skinny. With BMI maybe? With like a common indication? I mean if you’re at home facing the mirror and talking to your reflection, all is well.
If you’re the mean kind of slim person you’ll probably be like “it’s not my fault you’re fat.”
Me: Get over yourself man.
If you’re the nice kind of slim person you’ll probably be like “okay next time I’ll do it in front of people who’re skinnier than I am.”
And unless you genuinely think you’re really fat when you’re really not (people know it when they’re skinny, I just know it), you might be suffering from anorexia – which needs treatment asap. If not, don’t let other people worry for your health and yeah… stop saying you’re fat. When you’re not.
Because it makes larger-sized people feel bad about themselves.
And fourth issue – humble brags.
Man they’re all around. And maybe I behave like one sometimes. But these people really need to get over themselves. Humblebrags are really annoying hahahah and sometimes all you want to do is to silence them. I mean if you want to brag just brag!!! WHY MASK IT WITH OTHER STUFF?
E.g. of humble brag A: Omg I am so dumb! HOW DID I GET FULL MARKS FOR THIS QUIZ?
E.g. of humble brag B: Omg how did I even get through the interview? I’m the lousiest among all the candidates!
E.g. of humble brag C: There were so many people who were better than me.. they deserved it more than I do BUT I STILL GOT IT! HOW?????
E.g. of humble brag D: How can I still be nervous about getting on stage to receive awards when I have done that for the past 1219327 years of my life?
Yeah lah you get the gist.
I think I behave like a humble brag sometimes but still these people are really AsudjiaSDjSAKdj sometimes.
Some people don’t intend to do it… some overdo it till it becomes so creepy and goosebumps-inducing when you hear them humble brag. JUST BRAG MAN, JUST BRAG IT ALL OUT! STOP HIDING YOUR TRUE INTENTIONS!! STAHP!!!!
But okay moving on to the last issue of the post………………………….
I’ve been thinking about this for incredibly long you won’t believe it.
Isn’t it (almost) against your morals to leave a toilet cubicle/stall disgusting, dirty and unflushed?
Don’t people already know that there’ll probably be someone using it after them?
I mean if it comes to extreme situations with toilets with malfunctioning flushes, or lack of toilet paper, or like Idk-what-else, then okay……………………
But there are days where you just walk straight into a cubicle with a functioning toilet bowl and hell lots of toilet paper YET a super disgusting toilet bowl with like disgusting remains in it (you know what) and like all sorts of funny things.
WHY??? WHY DONT PEOPLE FLUSH???????? It’s just exerting a little force to press that little button to wash away your excretory products.
You think people want to see them? YOU THINK SO?????
GET OVER YOURSELF! Nobody wants to see it/them!!
I personally think it’s a moral obligation to keep the cubicle good and clean just like how it was when you enter the stall. In my honest opinion, leaving things behind in a toilet cubicle is worse than littering in public. Both are bad by the way. Just that one is worse than the other!
—— Ok end of super long rant ——-
I decided to collapse the text above into that line there, so if you’re interested to read then go ahead, if not, don’t bother! It’s a really long and pretty incoherent rant. It’s your choice whether you want to read it or not – I didn’t make you!
Anyway the past two weeks have been an emotional roller coaster, but today left me feeling good about humanity.
I really really love some people – how nice they can be and how amazing people can actually be!
I mean though it has been only a month into 2013, some people have really been sadhaskdjaskdnasdkqwmxsw but some have been really sweet and nice and all!
Especially those who are nice to me. ^-^
(NTS: Get over yourself. Nobody said they cared about whether you update your blog.)
But oh well.
May Week 5 and CNY be awesome.
