The Art of Being a ‘Know-It-All’

Imagine yourself walking……

A heavy-metal rock BG Music playing……

Fireworks behind you…..

Seems like a movie scene, doesn’t it? Well…that’s how I felt in a very normal, but somehow weird (Yeah, yeah I know that both of those words contradict each other) turn of events that took place today.

These events included a statement from me which mad me look like a ‘know-it-all‘ kinda guy. When I came out of this unnatural and un-happening (not a word!) sequence of events, I  took a moment to understand what the guy, whom I stated that fact to felt like. I know one thing for sure; he must have thought the following thing – ‘What a show-off’, coz you know, well…people don’t generally like a know-it-all.

Here’s the thing that pesters me though, how can somebody be a know-it-all? All means everything right? How can somebody know everything? There’s so much to know about this messed-up but mysterious and crazy world of ours. No-one can have so much knowledge. This fact brings me to my title for this post. If nobody can be a know-it-all, then the ones who seem like it are pretending right? And if they are pretending, and we believe them, then isn’t that an art? Hence, the art of being a know-it-all!

I know that it’s just a phrase that people use and does not literally mean what it sounds like. But when you don’t have content to write on, you need to make shit up. And for some reason, I like making shit up. This is my art!

The Journey of a Candy Wrapper

Going on adventures is an integral part of living your life to the fullest, or so I believe. Even though I believe that I do not live by it. Nor does my schedule allow me to (makes me sound like an important person). So, here I was today thinking about adventures and one sudden object popped into my mind, It was a candy wrapper.

Somebody had offered me a candy earlier today and being the person that I am, I took it without even blinking an eye. I ate the candy at that very instant rather than keeping it for later and stuffed the empty wrapper into one of my jean pockets. Never did it once come to my mind that I had a candy wrapper in my pocket for the next few hours.

I was returning home later that day and was walking towards the railway station to board a train. I was searching for something in my pocket and my hand felt a plastic presence which was the wrapper. I took it out. By this point I had already reached the station and I noticed a garbage bin nearby and was about to put the wrapper in it. But instead of any regular person who would just go near the bin and just put it in I decided to throw it from afar. It was a terrible decision coz I missed the mark and the wrapper ended up on the platform. I was about to pick it up and try my luck once again when an Express train happened to pass by.

The train was moving so fast since it had no halt at the station that it took the wrapper with it. I watched as the wrapper flew and flew until I couldn’t see it anymore because of my short vision. That’s when I decided to write this post and as I am finishing it I realize what a bunch of b.s this post is.

Take care buds!

Living the Dream Chapter 2 (Part 2)

I felt my eyes opening again. I was unaware of the events taking place in my life and I found myself baffled and clueless for the third time in a few hours.

The number of people present in the room now were far less than the last time. I was surprised by the looks on their faces. The previous time it was of joy and merry. This time it was the exact opposite of what had been. The looks on their faces were of concern and sorrow.

I could still feel that pain on my forehead. My head felt heavy. Somehow, I had managed to hurt myself and that heavy feeling was of the layers and layers of bandage cloth wrapped around my forehead.

Now, as I tried to turn my head, I saw a middle-aged woman by my side. I could clearly see that out of all the people in the room, she looked the most worried. Tears were rolling down her cheeks real slow. I remembered seeing tears in her eyes earlier too, but she didn’t look gloomy then. Rather, she was happy. As I tried to rest my head on the fluffy pillow I wondered how different emotions could trigger the same response from your body. It was truly a mystery. Just as much of a mystery as what was happening to me.

Chat with a Time-Traveller

(Pre-script: Hey guys!

So, I was just browsing through chatrooms the other day and I stumbled across one which piqued my interests. It was a closed group. Somehow, I got a chance to chat with a time-traveller. This is an excerpt from the chat.

Living The Dream Chapter 2 (Part 1)

(Pre-script: Sorry for the delay guys…I got lazy!)

I was wide awake by this point. However, I couldn’t make sense of what was going on around me. People I didn’t know, I couldn’t recognize seemed happy to see me.

It was not long before I realized that it was a birthday celebration. People were laughing, giggling, thrilled. All happy emotions one could think of, I could see. I was being tended. Smiles was being shared all around. It was all too much. It was really overwhelming.

I got up and left the room. I was searching for a quiet place. Then I saw it – A washroom! I would have been the happiest person at that instant of time, that too, just on seeing a washroom. I got in and closed the door behind me. I went in so that I could gather myself. All of this seemed like a dream. So, I decided to wake me up by washing my face. As I turned to do exactly the same my eyes fell on a mirror. I was stunned! I couldn’t look away. I saw myself as a whole other human being. It really wasn’t me.

I could sense my heartbeat. It was slowing down one beat at a time. I couldn’t do anything. It was like I was having a paralysis attack or at least what I thought paralysis attack would be like. I couldn’t move my feet or my arms or any part of my body. Everything from that point on was blurry with the only image clear was that of the guy I saw in the mirror. All I remember then, is my knees falling weak. Then I heard a loud thud and felt an excruciating pain on my forehead. And, the last sound I heard before my eyes closed again was that of a liquid droplet hitting the already wet ground – ‘PLUCK’.

Living the Dream Chapter – 1

CHAPTER 1: WAKING UP

          It was pitch black darkness. It was quiet. More quietness than I have ever experienced before. It was overwhelming.

          All of a sudden I start to hear voices. I see that the darkness was beginning to fade. I could see that first ray of light. I was happy to be seeing this ‘Light vs Dark’ fight. It reminded me of Star Wars. The light slowly started winning the battles. It was starting to get bright.

        The voices started to grow louder. By this time, I was able to see more than just the light. I could see shapes forming. More colors were being added into the mix. Different freestyle forms were starting to appear. These forms were like the ones I make using MS-Paint; meaning that I couldn’t make any sense out of them. They were blurry.

         As of now, the voices had become deafening loud. My ears shut down. All I could hear was – ‘EEEEEE’. I tried to compose myself and started to open my eyes. As I opened my eyes, the shapes that I was talking about started to grow clearer. I soon realized that they were people.

      My eyes were now fully open. I could see exactly what was going on. It was a celebration; for me. I had no idea why. The people standing in front of me were very happy. The only problem was that I grew anxious after seeing them. I could sense a chill running down my spine. I didn’t know what to say or what to do. I was scared. My head started to hurt.

       All of this coming down to one reason – I couldn’t recognize any one of them! I was on the verge of realizing that my life was about to turn upside-down.

Living The Dream – A Story

Hey guys,

So here’s the thing – I’ve been procrastinating writing posts a lot lately. I think a possible reason could be that I can’t find anything interesting to tell you guys about. Yes people – Life is boring nowadays (at least for me…).

I was thinking the other day about how there ought to be a way so that I can continue writing. And then it struck me; Stories! I remembered how interesting stories are. So I thought to myself – ‘Why not write one?’. It could be used as a post as well. I began exploring this new idea I had.

Now here I am with a start to my story. I just have a rough outline about what it would be. Also, I only have the start of the story figured out. I hope that the people reading my posts will actually relate to it and also that you can help me take it forward by giving me their opinions and insights about the story.

So, the next few posts will be on the new story that I developed just now called – LIVING  THE DREAM : A STORY.

Hope you’ll enjoy it & keep reading.

How to – ‘NOT’ Get a Girl !

Hey guys,

        As you know Valentine’s Day is just two days away. So it’s one reason that I am writing this now. The other reason is that I couldn’t think of a topic to write on until a couple of days ago & I happened to ask my friends for one. One of them told me that I should write on  – How to get a girl. I explained to him how I should be the last person to write that. Then he suggested this topic & I found it to be interesting. So here I am!

      1)  There is a very basic but important thing that a guy would have to do to get a girl or at least meet a girl & that is going out & socializing. I don’t do that too often. If you don’t do that there is no way you are going to meet a new person. So, that reduces your chance of getting a girl.

        2) What do you think is more important? Brains or Personality? People may say both are. I tend to lean towards brain, which is why I use my time to do activities that nurture my brain rather than doing personality development training. Personality is a very important factor that girls consider about a guy. So, if you don’t want a girl, then do not care about Charisma.

         I have to say though that the brains vs persona thing goes both ways.Those are two things that guys look for in a girl. Good looks are a factor; I agree. But, people like me have very high expectations of finding all of these qualities in one girl which happens ultra rarely. The following statement is applicable for every situation in life – Reality Never Matches Expectations.

        3) Time. You’ve got to dedicate your time to a girl. They are very sensitive about this. I have seen many relations getting broken up coz of this very clichéd reason – You don’t spend time with me anymore. So the next tip is to never find spare time. I find very less time for myself even though I am not doing anything meaningful or useful any given time of the day. It’s an art that you master with practice.

        4) Be really choosy. As I mentioned before, reality is nothing compared to our expectations. So be as unrealistic as possible. This will make every real girl a disappointment even though you’re not that good yourself.

        5) Be that guy. Yeah! Be that guy who points out every small mistake. People, especially girls, find it really annoying. It will certainly improve your chances of going up that least likely table.

        My fellow dudes & bros, this is a list of very few things that have worked for me so far. So if you DO NOT want to get a girl this Valentine’s follow these rules.And, if you do not wish to stay single anymore, then please change your priorities & review your options & remember – Someone else’s hand is better than yours! 😛

        Also, if you have any tips share with me. And for the girls reading this, if you think that I am wrong about any of those points then lemme know.

Bored? Hell Yeah!

Ssup guys..??

        Happy beginning of the week to all of you.. So I hop you enjoyed your weekends, right? If you did, then I am happy for you. And if you didn’t; well you are not alone. I am just as miserable as you are.

        My life has taken a very drastic and nasty turn over the past couple of years. I find myself talking to…. well..myself a lot nowadays. A lot more than I used to. Well this and many other habit of mine stems from the same factor – BOREDOM! My life has become extremely boring overall except for when I am hanging out with my buddies which has become a lot less considering they all have something or the other to do (unlike me 😛). I myself go out a lot less these days coz I am stuck to my PC. Then too I am bored as hell.

        So what do you do when you are bored, right? I eat a lot when I am bored. I tend to spend a lot of time on the internet. I waste a lot of valuable time. This time around I found a link which said – ‘A list of the most useless sites on the internet’. I spent almost 4 hours visiting and trying out each of those websites. Another thing that I do is that I act when I am bored. I put myself in the shoes of an actor. I think of scenes from the movies & I reenact those scenes. I do this only when I am by myself (obviously).

        However, it’s not all bad. Being bored has its own advantages. In my case I somehow end up doing a lot of thinking. There are round table conferences taking place inside my head where hundreds of voices take part. I am reminded of my goals that I tend to ignore or forget at times. This enlightenment sticks for a few days before I go back to being that lazy-ass again. Actually, I do not forget what my end aims are but I choose to not work towards it sometimes. The storm that hits shatters my boat of conviction. Then again a short period of time comes during which I am self-reminded of my ambitions.

        Nobody likes being bored, especially not me. What do you guys do when you are bored? Lemme know!

 

Time Travelling (Part II)…..

Ssup guys?

        So my last post was about the major question that pops into our mind when we hear ‘Time Travel’. This post is to take the exploration of time travelling effects further.

        I have already written about the dilemma of ‘where to?’ in my last post. Now its time to talk about the  ‘when?’. The question is when will we be able to actually experience time travel. How long before an actual time-machine (if that’s what they name it) will be invented? Technological advancements never seem to cease in this awesome (sometimes) world of ours. Yet for some reason we have not been able to bend the principles and laws of TIME.

        I have always wondered if a time machine does exist & for some reason whoever owns it has not revealed its existence. If one thinks very hard about the consequences such a device or invention can cause it is understandable why its existence has not been revealed yet. It in someway, I believe, can lead to world domination. Countries will fight to get their hands on it. It may very well be the root cause of World War III. The life of the person who invented/owns it will become a hellish.

        Though there are many reasons that points to various disadvantages of a time travelling machine, deep down every one of us wants it. So, lemme know what you would do if you invented/owned a time machine.
