We’re a bunch of escapists

So how are you guys? That question was rhetorical, don’t answer it. The fact is I couldn’t care less how you guys are. Infact very rarely is there an author or a writer who actually cares about how their readers are. Harsh reality? I know.

We as a race are addicted to our culture. And a major part of it is comprised of Books (you know, the things with pages), Anime (Japanese cartoons) and Movies (people doing stuff in front of a camera).

But why are we so addicted to them? What makes us like them so much? What’s so special about them?

The simple fact is most of us are escapists. We watch Anime and Movies because we want to delve into someone else’s exciting story to escape our boring one. We want to live a life full of action, fun and love and all the other things we don’t have in our lives.  We want emotions and the experiences of other fictional people to distract us from our own lives. Our imagination is the greatest method to escape reality.

Granted some may argue: “Rayan, you piece of shit, Anime and Books and Movies provide us with good entertainment, that’s all.”

And you would be absolutely wrong. What do you think in the first place which actually entertains us in these media? The very fact they are different from our lives. You’ll have a hard time finding a good Movie without some plot twist or some unrealistic thing happening which won’t happen to us in real life. All in all we all (most of us) are escapists. Slice Of Life anime provides us a new perspective on life, and doesn’t show a similarity to it. No matter how you look at it, we are a culture of escapists.

Is it bad? I don’t think so.

This all came to me when I finished a really good anime series and I was going into general depression because there wasn’t another season.

This is happening too much

After a long hiatus I’ve decided to return to the blogosphere. Oh, just in case someone’s keeping count my New Years resolution was to post more often. Got that bagged. Now for some reasons as for why I haven’t been posting. Laziness, forgetfulness and a total neglect towards all thing social have resulted in the complete abandonment of this site I call a blog. As if that wasn’t obvious.

My writing style has changed a bit if you’ve noticed. Apparently so has my personality. I think writing style is directly proportional to personality. Atleast a new season of Doctor Who is coming out this April so that will break me out of my permenant existensial crisis which gnaws at my soul constantly.

So I’d like to see this post as a new beginning for my blog. I will also be scrapping all my previous projects including the stories. 

Now, piss off.

Not really.

I’m back

Right right right I’m back. Right, I’m acting as if I’m making a big statement, the large amount of the usage of the word ‘right’ seems to indicate that. So let’s get right in to this post.

First of all reasons for I didn’t post for near about a month or so. Well, it was because of a combination of laziness, procrastination, school exams, a trip to my hometown and my birthday. All of these will be explained in further posts.

Now to do something so cliché that it should be a crime; write about new year resolutions. Well my first and foremost resolution is to fix my virus infected computer. I’ve survived without said computer since November and I don’t know how long I will last. Next I I’ll try to post at least once a week on my blog. And that’s about it. No more resolution. Seriously who actually fulfills their resolutions in the first place?

Well as you may have noticed this post is lacking in the general use of my sarcastic humor and my (attempted) satiric writing style. Don’t have much to be sarcastic here, actually. Right that’s it you can stop reading now.

Corrections of the Rules of Social Blogging-(The Proper Ones, Atleast)

Hi. Now this is bit of a ranty-blamey post(THAT IS A WORD AUTOCORRECT) which means I’ll be ranting and (indirectly) be blaming others for their wrong knowledge and for their wrong application of the knowledge of the rules of blogging. If you know that I might be talking about you in this post, you have a right to be pissed.

1. Rule-1 Always comment on other peoples post!

Correction: Always comment on other peoples post, if you like it.

Goddamit. I’ve seen so many people drop lame and insincere comments on posts so they can get views on their own blog. It’s disgusting. I see blogging as a medium to share your thoughts, not to get views. That’s Youtube’s job. If you don’t think a post doesn’t deserve your comment, don’t comment.

2. If someone follows your blog, follow them back!

Correction: If someone follows your blog, check their blog out, and if you like it follow them back.

I’ve received email from random bloggers who have followed me saying “I followed you, now follow me!” and when I refused they ended up unfollowing me. People just expect other people to follow them because they followed their blog,whether they have good content or not.

3. Like every post!

Correction: Use common sense, when liking a post.

Right. This is one of the most annoying things I’ve ever seen in the world of blogging. On someone’s blog, she wrote a sad recount of how her first kiss was ruined. And the post received 9 fucking likes. What the fuck. I also saw a post of about death and pessimism on another popular bloggers blog, which received, get this, OVER 50 LIKES.

You know what? I’ll continue this into another post. Why? I’m too lazy.

3 Days 3 Quotes: Day 1

Well, I saw this post on Alyssa‘s blog- thanks for nominating-, and she said everyone is free to this and I do like quotes a lot, so yeah I’m doing this. I scrapped the Donald Trump plan, by the way. Here are the rules:

  • Show the challenge on your blog.
  • Thank your nominator.
  • Pick a favorite quote, explain what it means and tell your readers why you chose that quote.
  • Nominate people for every post
  • Post the challenge once a day for 3 days and include one quote for each post.

I Live my life based on this quote.

sample_3

I love this quote a lot. It does not mean that you literally set people of fire. Please do make an exception if its Donald Trump though. This quote means that you shouldn’t take life that seriously. Joke around. Have fun. Light people on fire. It also means that you should have a sense of humor. A sense of humor will get you through the toughest of times.

I particularly don’t have anyone to nominate. If you are reading this, consider yourself nominated.

I’m posting after quite a while…

Hello. I’m posting after quite a while. Well, what seemed to me to be quite a while, at least. Let me entertain you with a few reasons for why I was absent.

Firstly, I was pretty busy preparing for MUN. MUN is basically where you pretend to be delegates from other countries and debate about what’s going on in the world a shit like that. That’s just a loose explanation. More on this in the next few posts.

Secondly, my internet usage ran out and my mom wouldn’t let me use her phone.  I was literally separated from the love of my life (the Internet). It was fucking awful.

Thirdly, their is no third reason.

In conclusion, I’ll post something soon. And holy shit, I’ve lost quite a few views… better write about something controversial; how about Donald Trump?

Chocolate 


As you can guess, by reading the title, this post is dedicated to the King of all sweets,Chocolate. It also causes diabetes. But I’m pretty sure we all can ignore that small fact. Oh. I just realised chocolate is the main factor for high blood sugar levels in adults. Heh, big deal! I’m not even an adult. Wait a minute. Chocolate is created by a sophisticated process which contributes to global warming and deforestation. Well…….. I’m sure a couple of trees don’t mind dying if they can give me some chocolate, right?

That’s how much I like chocolate. In fact I’ve eaten so many types of chocolates you might as well call me a conneseur. Chocolate is like coffee, just sweeter. And more solid. And it usually doesn’t come in a cup. Nevermind. 

Chocolate just gives me this, nice tingly feeling at my fingertips. And it also tastes good. It’s a bit like cocaine (not that I’ve had any) but it’s legal. Most chocolates have their own distinguished texture as well. Some are smooth and silky while others are hard and chunky. But the main thing is it refreshes you. 

So, go on have a bar of chocolate.
