Letter 9: Someone you wish you could meet

August 11, 2010 5 comments

Dear Future Sarah,

You’ve done things I haven’t done. You’ve seen things I haven’t seen. You know things I don’t know. You lucky dog. If you’re not living on the edge you’re taking up too much space. In fact, you better be falling off the edge –of a plane! Preferably before summer ends.

As for the long term, I’m sure you won’t have problems making ends meet. You have that tendency to make the most of situations (good or bad) and turn them in your favour. Just don’t lose sight of what’s really important to you, otherwise you’ll find yourself working around what would otherwise be the desired outcome.

Time seems to go by slowly when you’re moving forward, yet so quickly when you’re looking back. Nonetheless I’ve learned lots from Past Sarah and I know you’ll learn lots from me!

Your Pal,

Sarah.

Gather ‘round, children. It’s story time!

March 28, 2010 Leave a comment

I’m going to write a novel and submit it to a publishing company. It’s called, “My Mind is a Black Hole.” It’s about this character (you could say it’s semi-autobiographical) who finds herself at the mercy of egg-heads in white coats during some laboratory experiment -something to do with studying my overwhelming awesomeness. Then an accident occurs, causing a big explosion of my head. The scientists reassemble my head and mix in certain chemicals that lead to having superpowers. It works likes this: any encounter with irresponsible, narrow-minded, truth-denying, people who maliciously misunderstand and force me to decrypt the tautological nonsense they elicit would make my head explode.

With my head turning into a supernova, the chances of a black hole forming are heightened. At which point, the black hole inevitably sucks in every quark, lepton etc (you name it) of the person, where they are recomposed into my subconscious. They would have to live in my world, deal with my crazy dreams etc. When they understand their wrongdoing they are released and re-recomposed back to reality (only they have the power to do that). However, it’s not guaranteed they will go back to the way they were before the decomposition. The process is all involuntary.

*Spoiler alert*
Then in the last chapter I piss myself off and get sucked into my own black hole. Oh the horror.

Note: “Supernovas” take a long time to occur, and even so it would take a lot for a serious “black hole” to form. Metaphor ends now.

Going with the Flow

February 11, 2010 4 comments

This is something I tend to do. I think my problem is that I’m too easy-going sometimes. I just go with the flow and accept whatever life has to offer, then make the best of it and move on. That’s why I very seldom get angry.

Whatever happens, happens.

So how is this a bad thing?
What if going with the flow doesn’t take you where you want to go? Then what’s the point? I’ve always thought that you can’t control the situation, but you can control how you react to them. This is true, especially if the event already happened. But if we’re talking about the future, then it’s a different case. While you can’t always control how the situation will be exactly, you can definitely still try to make it happen. That’s where my problem is. I’m taking the attitude I have after an event happened, and applying it to the time before the desired event happens. In the end, I just end up working around what would otherwise be the desired outcome.

Point is: know what you want and strive for it. Don’t settle for less.
Time to fight the flow!
