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! 🙂

Who I wanna be.

When we’re down, every little flaw around us is obvious. Even a tiny bump in the road can seem like a matter of concern. I get so pissed sometimes.. for absolutely nothing. Must be all the studying I’m having to do lately. All the time away from my people. I get murderous every time my Giraffe of a benchmate hides my view of the cute guy or when one of my naturally annoying teachers decide to be a little more annoying. As I drown in that ocean of contempt for literally “every fucking thing”, comes along math class to resuscitate me.

No, I was never a huge fan of Math. Didn’t like it, didn’t hate it. This year, however, it’s different and THAT I’m grateful for. I’ve met a lot of people in my life. Interesting, good, bad, lame, moral, and on goes the list. But, never have I ever met someone like my Math teacher. He is hands down the best Math teacher there ever will be and also happens to be an even more exceptional person. Exceptional enough to have me waiting for Math class every day.

We see flawless people on TV everyday. I do, I mean, I’m a Sherlockian! But this is my first encounter with such flawlessness in reality. I can’t even begin to understand how someone with accomplishments this huge, could be so kind, down to earth. In a world where children are considered to be hilariously inferior to adults, this man treats us like we matter. Perhaps it’s all of his well earned respect, that makes it seem like impressing him with our potential will be one of our greatest achievements. We don’t know much about his personal life, or his life out of school itself to begin with. The thing is, I don’t think anyone cares! He is our Math teacher and how he is with us is all that matters.

All my life I had the idea that image was everything. Knowing how to handle people and getting them to think, what I’d like them to think of me was my life’s goal because I come from a generation where everyone admire good looking people with a sharp tongue and “cool stuff”. I see the vanity in all that now.

Character is everything. When no one who knows you would want to change a thing about you, THAT’s respect and THAT is the respect I hope to earn someday. If a person can make even MATH seem interesting, then THAT is the kind of people’s skill I’d like for myself. If I am ever known as somebody, someone like him is who I wanna be. What about you?
