Please, please, Please!! Just stop cracking your knuckles!!!
It’s very annoying. I just don’t understand what they sense when they do that?! I mean, it’s already annoying listening to it; no need to feel it too.
I’ve noticed a lot of people crack their knuckles without flinching; it seems enjoyable (to them). But if I were to work in a workplace with people continuously and enjoyably cracking their knuckles, I would be immediately sent to a mental hospital! I can’t explain why… it simply drives me mad. I guess when I hear the sound, I imagine bones breaking or anything painful. Ughhh!
No, I mean it! Seriously I am not kidding, STOP cracking your knuckles!
I will admit; I too have a bad habit that people hate. But I won’t tell you what it is; today’s topic is not about “my” vice but “their” vices 😛
Maybe I’ll disclose it another time, when I am ready.
Right now, I am obliged to work anything so that I’d pay off my tuition. But if I were to spend my life doing office work just to earn a living, I’d prefer to stay broke!
I am studying social media, currently. A job in this field in any company, or ad agency is my dream job, simply because I don’t consider it as a job! Rather, I’m having fun 😀 So I’ll earn my living by having fun and being creative. This is a job I’ve always dreamed of but never knew that it was social media; I’ve only considered it as ‘wasting time’ as my parents put it.
When I was in school, I used participate in science projects where I got the chance to experiment with chemicals and create perfumes and inflammable paint. That was my dream job at that time, to experiment with chemicals all day and see what happens. To be creative and have fun! As I grew older, my idea of my dream job changed. Chemistry got more serious and less fun and my new dream job changed to engineering.
Once I entered university, I hated it! And I lied to myself and convinced myself that it will get better once I go deeper into the courses. Plus, I have to live up to my parent’s expectations (It ran in the family). But it didn’t! That’s when I made the most unexpected decision in my life and chose to join the Business School to study Marketing. I fell in love with the course immediately. My dad was not convinced and it was hard to convince him as well because I couldn’t just say that I love it because it’s fun. He wouldn’t understand! The only way was to show him my passion.
Choosing to work in this field was the most unexpected and best decision I ever made so far! I chose how ‘I’ will live my life and not how ‘they’ planned it! And earning a living that way is all I ask for.
I remember the first time I watched Aladdin when I was kid and Genie appeared and offered Aladdin 3 wishes. I was awed! I said to myself: “I wish I was there; I want 3 wishes! I would have asked for candies for each meal, Pikachu Pokemon card to show it off, and schools to shut down so that I could play all day long!”
Haha! Now I look back and think to myself: ” Look at what used to worry about. I was free!”
My life changed a lot, in good and bad ways. But you know what? I’ve grown too and I realized that my worst times where actually my favorite times and they always stuck in my mind. I still remember them and wish I could go back and go to detention, stay after-school and be silly, play pranks on teachers, chew gum and get yelled at, and send notes in the pencil case! These where my BEST days, when they were my WORST at that time.
And here I am today in university, going through my 3rd stage of my life and feeling like shit. Each day is more demanding and worse than the other and they don’t seem to end!
If a genie comes out now and says: “Today is your lucky day! I will grant you 3 wishes. Tell me what you want!” I will respond by:” Thanks, but no thanks! I want to live these horrible days. When I am through and pass through my 4th stage of my life, I will look back and think to myself about how lucky I was: Free to skip class and work, meet with friends, participate in fun activities, get drunk, stay out late nights, overnight studying (not fun, but something to laugh about!), begging the teacher to change my grade or asking for help and making as many mistakes as I want and learning from them, getting a driver’s licence and drifting, failing and laughing about it.”
I don’t want to change anything in my life. I am satisfied. I just want to go with the flow and enjoy every moment whether it’s good or bad.
