Time to go big on the Thank Yous.

Well, I’ve been going about this whole throwback week thing for a while now and getting all my old poems read. I, for one, think the Internet has seen enough of the kid I used to be. Anyone who has missed this older version of me, fear not for I am back and here to stay. 😀

Man! I am in a really good mood right now. Must be all the new music I decided to download. It’s funny how my whole perspective on life changes when I have the company of good music. All it took was a bunch of good grades to get me grinning ear to ear today. I have to admit, I like this. Oh, I really do. This happiness is one welcome guest after all the melancholy for absolutely nothing. It is infact these few happy moments that make all the hard work I’ve been putting in at school, worthwhile.

People. There are a lot of them lately. I’ve been connecting with some amazing people with kick-ass blogs and in school too. Well, yes, I admit, at school I was always that popular kid. But now, things are different. Better even! They’re more friends than a possy. I guess I’ve understood how to make friends rather than just getting people to like me. (if you know what I mean) and the fellow bloggers, man I am extremely greatful to be given this platform. You’ve all become a huge part of my life now. It’s been around 8 months since I started out here and I actively blogged for 4. This period of time has been life changing. I’ve grown as a person and who do I owe it all to? The people.

I talk about how epic life is but I failed to notice how the people in mine are responsible for all the epicness of it. My not-so-ordinary family, and my what-you’d-call-geeky friends are the best this world has to offer. At plain sight what seems ordinary will certainly surprise you when you look close enough. I’ve seen greater wisdom in my teachers than renowned scholars. My fellow bloggers have taught me more than any religion ever could. So, a big thank you is in order. (I’ll get to it soon enough, just a little more rambling! :D)

I’m sure you have some interesting people in your lives too. Never fail to appreciate them because, well, they kind of ARE your lives. Never fail to see the magic in their eyes. There’s more to everything than what meets the eye. Show some respect because everyone’s fighting a battle you don’t know of. Just be nice. It’s not so hard. (Even with the stupid people. Hey! They’re giving you a good laugh! Be grateful. :P)

Now to the thanking,

THANK YOU all for being the way you are and being a part of my life which you have indeed made what I would call legend -wait-for-it- dary. Thank you for everything you’ve taught and shown me, helping me become who I am and sometimes just being there at the right times.

Have a good day my people! 🙂

The Teenage girl theory

Things happen at the most unexpected times don’t you think? On a lazy day you find an old Friends episode you haven’t watched yet; what you think is going to be a lame post turns out to be a huge hit; a lame day turns interesting and of course those momentary epiphanies you have while waiting for a download to complete or the oven to finish thawing last night’s left-overs. At times I get the feeling that I can even prove the origin of the universe if my half-asleep state lasts longer every night! It is like the universe is screaming at you that things happen only when you don’t try really hard, don’t you think?

Working hard is important. Dedication is the highway to reaching your destiny and blah blah blah. But then, that isn’t really the case in every situation. Sometimes trying too hard just ruins everything. I guess you can call it bad juju! 😀 When there are cases where wanting something so bad accelerates the process based on the whole noetic science idea from The Lost Symbol, there are also times when trying to hard ultimately just ruins our chances. How is that you ask? I’ve got two words for you: Reverse Psychology.

In ways the human mind is like a teenage girl. It is more attracted to what is hard to get. Like how the jock who doesn’t care is more attractive than the nerd who actually cares. I feel quite puny when I realize that our psyche is just a replay of every High-school movie ever made. :/ Yet, we can’t really help it, can we? We never really give a chance to the ones who try too hard. We title them as desperate and just get on with rejecting their request or whatever the case. I wonder if it is because we form this idea that the reason they try so hard is because they don’t really have what it takes in the first place and the’re just trying to cover it up. Again, the teenage girl theory applies here too. We confuse sincerity to the desperate loser who lies through his teeth to get the girl. I see it, I do, We have a serious problem with differentiating these two cases.

Another reason where the “hard work” backfires is because it really is just bad juju. I don’t have another explanation for that! There have been many times in my life where I’ve wanted things really bad. Sometimes I get them, sometimes I dont. There’s this one case where since the time I really wanted it, I just NEVER got it! I am the kind of girl who absolutely loves school. I’ve had a bit of a nomadic childhood but since the 6th grade I’ve been in the same school which I have learned to love now. I made friends that I enjoy the company of in class every day. I settled down with my solid reputation and everything in the 9th grade. Ya know? Around here they split students into different classes based on whatever order they wish because we all take the same classes anyway until the 11th grade.

Until my 10th I never really needed to have anyone’s company in particular, but after a tremendous year of fun and joy with my perfect classmates I wanted that to continue. Is that so bad? In my 10th grade I simply wanted to have my friends in my class. Guess what I got? A big fat nothing! I went around looking for my name in every class’s notice board. Zilch! Nada! Nil! no name, nowhere, in any of the classes where my friends were. They sorted me into a class with the kind of people I could never get along with. Utterly shallow and stupid, those are the two things I can never tolerate, and that was the company I had for a year!

After getting through that with good grades (thankfully) I got into 11th and I was very excited. Especially because I now get to choose my subjects at least to some extent and I knew that all of my friends were going to be taking the same course too. I was so sure that things would go write this time.. but then, it didn’t. Once again they managed to split me into the hell-hole. This time though I wasn’t going to shut up. I used my “power of speech and persuasion” to get my principal to put me in a different class. Thank God for my super powers. I’m sure you can see where I’m going with this. Now its summer here and in a matter of days I’m going to be in my 12th grade. What happens now? Oh yes. New class. AGAIN! the worst part is that my one time validity for my super powers are over. 😦 Maybe this whole post is just me wanting to subconsciously vent about this.

Even so my observation or rather musing is that, apparently even God or whatever the holy power is up there also works on the basis of this Teenage girl theory. It’s no wonder God made man in his image. I guess they forgot to mention the similarities in the attitude in the bible. 😀
