One Line Sunday- Cringe now

This little piece of information might make you cringe (or not) but it’s been a year since I discovered something a lot of other females have seen for years and that’s how breathtaking the British actor, Tom Hiddleston is.

The illusion of introverts

only illusionSome people have the illusion that introverts are quiet and they don’t like people. As a matter of fact, both introverts and extrovert do like to talk but introverts choose when to open their mouths. Someone who keeps talking is stressful. For example, yesterday when I went by bus to celebrate Midsummer Eve, there was this young woman who kept talking to her friend. The whole trip she kept talking. I thought, does she ever shut up? Not a silent moment from her. How can someone have so many thoughts coming out of their mouth is beyond me. Even if I know a person, it still feels awkward to know what to say. What’s wrong with being quiet? You don’t have to keep talking all the time. Silence should be appreciated.

Think before you speak is much better than someone who keeps saying what comes out of their mouths. A study says that quiet people are smarter and it might be true. At least when it comes to talking nonsense. When you think first before you speak, you don’t hurt someone feelings on purpose. Online it’s easier to say what you think but even then you should think first. If you’re angry, you should calm down first because when you are, you can say things you can regret later. Being rude is not cool.

I don’t like wasting my time with talking whatever comes to mind. Introverts like to think before speaking. If there’s a subject I know something about, it’s obvious I will talk more. If people keep saying why I’m quiet, they don’t really know me. I could get angry at them and yell in frustration, “I am not quiet so stop saying that” But I won’t since I think about their feelings too. If they want me to talk then they will regret it because when I talk about a subject I like, I’ll never shut up. Subjects I don’t care about bores me. No one likes someone who talks about something they’ve never experienced or have no idea about. That’s one of my pet peeves. Before talking about something, you should get your fact right first.

Never have an illusion that an introvert doesn’t like talking. You should get to know one first before saying how quiet they are. First impressions can be deceiving. I think that’s been one of the reasons why people never want to get to know me. I never give a good first impression. It really bugs me when people think I’m quiet and they see that straight away. It doesn’t really matter what people think. I could have got sensitive about it when I was younger. But now I wouldn’t care less. I don’t know how much you need to talk before not being called quiet. I’m not presenting anything. If I give short answers that should be enough. It’s not really my fault if people don’t get the idea. There’s too much talking in the world anyway so without the quiet people, there would be no piece anywhere.

From pencil to paper to computer

paper and lap topI used to write with a pencil and paper. I got my ideas written down easier. But recently I haven’t written anything on a paper first. Maybe I’m getting lazy but also because I find it easier to write on a computer. With a pen you get a sore wrist and papers pile up. Used paper that is. I never write on fresh ones. Writing on the computer is faster and you can edit errors immediately. Writing with a pencil you have to use an eraser and that produces a lot of junk from it. My latest fan fictions were written on the computer. It saves a lot of time and paper.

A lot of things are on the computer these days. You can pay your bills online. Contact the authorities. You can ever order your passport through the internet. When you go to a photographer to take your photo for the passport, they send it straight to the police station. There’s no need to print them on paper anymore. Even if a lot of things have been digitised, there’s still need for prints. It’s much easier to read long documents from a paper. My eyes get too tired if I read too long stories on the computer. People who read books from a printed version even prefer it that way. Holding the real thing in your hand is much more satisfying. I still read the newspaper. Well look through it and read if there are things that interest me. I prefer that better than online even if I do that too.

There are good things about paper but also not so good. A lot of trees had been torn down to make paper through decades. But it has also served people. Fortunately, humans have found a way to recycle paper to make new ones. Technology might have taken over but there’s always a need for paper. If it didn’t exist graphic designers and artists couldn’t do their work. Authors need paper to get their books printed for people to read them. Reading is good for you and doing that from a paper is so much easier. I’m still gonna use paper from time to time because without that I would forget how to use a pencil. It’s easier to plan when you have them in hand. No computer can never replace them completely.
