Occasional Inspirations

For 2014, I decided to follow some of the 365 writing prompts given by The Daily Post. Check it out. It was recommended by a turtle (Don't ask.)

Of Annoying Siblings and Meaningless Arguments!

 I'm sure most of you reading this have siblings, whether they're older and younger than you. I'm the eldest, so I'd know what lil kids are made of. Sugar and spice and everything nice... NOT. It's more towards eye of newt, tongue of dog, wings of bat. The ingredients pretty much sums them kids up: NASTY. Yet I still love those lil impish children, no matter how much they try to break my eardrums with their repulsive screams.

 I was talking 'bout my bros. They're way too easy to read compared to my sis. Then again, it's probably because she's a girl, and girls are ALWAYS complicated, right? :) And most girls can't read boys very well too, that's a fact.
 We've fought over lil things all the times, (Like who controls the remote, whose turn is it to use the laptop, etc.), but it was always short. And she'd go very extreme at trying to annoy me, using many weird methods of hers. It kinda made me feel like she hates me. Which is pretty obvious, duh. :D

 But what I came to realise is, (With the help of my parents, of course.) it's that little sisters have their own ways of showing they're affection. My sister's way is to constantly bug me all the time. I still find the 'bickering equals care' quite hard to grasp, but at least I know that she cares, in a way. And to those of you who thinks fussy little fights are not good, think again. They bring kids closer, sort of. Which is better: 1) You hate and fight each other when you're young, and became stuck like glue in the end, or 2) You lead a non-fight-your-siblings life, and end up giving the cold shoulders to them in the near future?

 So, moral of this suddenly turned up piece of writing (In case you haven't noticed.): They (Annoying lil bros and sis, and arguments all year round) spice up people's childhood. It certainly did for me. I don't like my siblings to be goody two shoes all the time, because that's like having your fave meals daily: It's nice at first, but get dull and predictable after a while. And it's fun to bicker and argue... Especially when you know you're gonna win most of the time. ;)

 That's it from me. Now, go ahead and pick a meaningless fight with your siblings over the remote control! :D

Whatcha Gonna Do When the World Ends?

2012 arrived the same way for me as 2011 did: with fireworks blasting off in the night sky, with me watching from the bedroom window. New years are always the same with me. :) Speaking of 2012, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear it? Most people would think, DISASTER, MAYAN CALENDAR, END OF THE WORLD!!! Y'know, that kinda stuff. To think all this widespread fear happened because of some Mayan calendar. Turns out they just couldn't fit all the dates into one circle thing, and the supposed apocalypse is the start of the new calendar. PSHAWWW. :D But many people still think the world's gonna die.
Hence the title. What are you gonna do, assuming the world is coming to a close? Would you think of all the things that you did in your past? Would you go all out to repent? Would you try to make the the world a better place (Even though it would explode in an awesome way.)? Would you do your best to get into Heaven?

Or would you throw away all your ethics and become a greedy little monster? Would you go 'Since the end of the world is near, might as well take all these, I'm sure no one would mind.' before robbing shops senselessly? Would you do all the things that you wanted (Bad things, of course.) with your reasoning a bit like this:


Would you party all night long, dancing 'til the world ends? Popping bottles 'til you can't stand anymore? If you would, then you, my friend, are very foolish.

I'll let you people ponder on that. Just to note: RELAX. The world won't end on 21st December 2012. It's just rumours. Evidence ------> Here.

What you wanna do when the world ends, does not mean you don't have the slightest desire to do it even if it doesn't end. Control yourself, and lead a happy 2012. :)
