Hey, Been ages since I have written and I think it’s because I have kind of lost of confidence to write. I feel I am not the
“ultimate creative writer” ( I hope I am using the quotes properly), as everyone around me seems to be more sorted with the english language than I am. I suck at grammar and also with technology and auto correct- you tend to forget how to spell basic spellings at times. With super fast texting we forget to use punctuation too. I mean, I have to make a conscious effort if I want to make sense in a sentence with proper punctuation.Anywho, I know I went to a real nice english school with an amazing english teacher but I just didn’t pay proper attention. I mean I know the minor basics but if you ask me to recognise a verb or an adjective, I’ll be scratching my head or telling you to give me a minute and then go to dictionary.com or the dictionary app or google it! Phew! Man, how it sucks to know your mistakes but still not want to do anything majorly about them! Why do I feel so lame and stupid when people are just conversing normally but at the same time using such complicated words and grammatical terms. I know it’s not all that difficult but my brain refuses to acknowledge their existence and if it does acknowledge it,it wants to just hide under the blanket and want to stay there till the grammar police leaves!!! I do intend to better myself sometime in the future…( psst…notice how I ignored the present?) I got this book with some basic exercises to help me write better. I got stuck on chapter 2…CHAPTER 2! Can you believe it? I am sure a child in school would have known.( Well,in my defence, kids these days are real smart.) I have been told, that I write as I speak, I mean I have been thinking…Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Don’t we always tell people to speak their minds?
I have been watching a lot of stand up comedians on Netflix and also Youtube. I watch some Vlogs which are quite the “IN” thing since the past 6 years or more now. Quite a few people are into it but my favourites are Lily Singh aka Superwoman and Cassey Neistat for their Vlogs. Gabriel Eglesias and Russel Peters for their comedy amongst others. Superwoman has these amazing videos every Monday and Thursday that kinda crack me up. It’s all in good humour but one can learn a lot from their videos and humour. They all choose to make us laugh and make our day better. Even in the Vlogs they are there to give us a good time. Watching them on-screen, gives us the feeling we’re with them and living some of the things they are doing. I know, I know…Get out of the house, Get a life… These kinda things are racing in your mind while you are reading this! But I feel technology is fun, I like to live life on both sides of the grass…For me it’s greener either way. I tend to be with my family moreover and they love to home hop every time it’s extremely hot or extremely cold on one side. That been said, yes I am lucky. I am so lucky and grateful. Thank you to every little thing in my life. Big shoot out to the universe for all the blessings! I have also realised the true meaning of being happy where you are. The truest saying being, ‘if life gives you lemons…have some tequila shots!’ Though, I am a more whiskey kinda gal. Ah…The happiness that even a shot of single malt can give.
Now you people thing I am talking like an alcoholic and I need to attend an AA class. LOL Okay enough of this mundane rambling…I was told just the other day that people like to read my blog posts coz I write short and sweet and to the point. I doubt It’s short but yes I may ramble at times…this maybe a little longer as I haven’t written in like 2 months. I mean in the blue hills I always write better and more but this time it took me a little longer to get to writing. Hope next time I can write sooner. I hope you all who take out the time to read my blog enjoy this one. Thank you for your time and patience. Love to all!
