Everything and Nothing, Scattered Thoughts

To know or show you know

Most of the time Knowledge is power and that power put to use it can be very important.

When one knows things there is a need to convey and show others that you have a level of knowledge in one given subject or many for that matter, the difficulty arises when the knowledge you had acquired is not required even if that your input will make a change.

Some people need to be recognized for their understanding of a subject and how they manage to express it. others couldn’t care less and they are more than happy to be passed by(while you know you know , nothing else matter).

I know there are loads of grey areas in between of this simple statement. my wonderment comes into the questions when and how one should show their learnings?

All the Time:

” Hello!!! I’m Here I know! Please pick me if not I will perform Harakiri…”

or

” You need me,You know you will benefit, without my knowledge your business or whatever it is will crumble and then you will regret the time you did not choose my acquired skills”

Sometimes:

“I’m here with this bundle of information that is useful for your endeavours, should you ask me I will decide if I can bother myself to help you”

or

“OK how can we share and do this, moving forward”

Never

“Ah you need me to share my Knowledge with you in this?  Let’s meet up later(never) to discuss”

Telling yourself.  ” How possibly be that what I know of interest to other people , I rather have this to myself and not give away  my thought” You never know which evils people will do with this info”.(Paranoid much?).

I don’t know I just find funny some situations.

Monday…

I love Mondays , most people think I’m crazy but Monday for me is a beginning and beginnings are full of Hope.

Specially when outside is so lovely neither hot or cold with the sun shining and kissing your face.

Monday morning is amazing you have completed a whole another week and your toes are balancing at the edge of a new day trying to go forward, it is only a matter of time until your brain clicks so you can start the day(already loads of words describing journeys to come).

How people think it isn’t a day for motivation it boggles me as Monday is bringing you a whole bundle of new adventures , feelings  and energy.

Tube

In London whether you like it or not we are a bit paranoid ,at least I’am. Not that I’m a scardy cat but I do think about how I will react to different incidents.

This morning ,when a good crowd goes to work , I took the tube at Clapham South as usual. As per routine I scanned the people on the carriage, I always do, remembering that someone spend long time studying people from the tube and then wrote a book. Of course there isn’t any available seat, I will have to wait until Stockwell.

Leaning against the screen next to the sliding doors while listening to very loud music,my attention which was in Lala land start to focus in the chap opposite me reading the Koran or so I thought , maybe was any other book in arabic, he was reading aloud to himself (so not so laud).Therefore because I’m human and whether or not I like it, a bit prejudice I started to plan in my head for the worst scenario. They were 2 alternatives,that I had contemplated basicly one he might blow everyone up so we caput or he might produce a knife and start to stab us all.With the latter I was working out that if I put my bag (Full of standard ladies bag things)I might be able to stop the knife going through and that might buy the ladies who were wearing white linen( very inconvenient colour for the situation going on in my head), After a while of how I will defend myself and help people strategies, I looked up and realise there are far more scary men and women in here that this poor bloke which I’m judging, at the end of the day, it is Friday and is the day of worship for some religions. and they need to pray at some point during the day.

Maybe next week I will analyze the man with camouflage gear and all his murders(I think he looks like a serial killer)

Now the metal machine is in Embankment (do I get down and walk, “nah… I stay on til L Square”).

 

There are plenty of books about the underground which are very interesting.

Here is a review about Underground notes

There is a little concern

 

There is a little concern of mine in regards of my daughter .

As a mum I worried and sometimes I like to be in her head in regards of body image.

I want her not to care but be aware that she needs to pay the sufficient attention to be a healthy person. She is hitting puberty now.

I had bulimarexia when I was a kid and all started right about the same age  she is now, Issues were starting to matter and I focus myself in body image and food.

I do not want her to have the same horrible feelings that I did or be dictated by how she look like , I know I can not protect her and I know she has more sense than me, or does she?  Would she feel the pressure of what society wants us to be on the outside.

Thoughts can change and take you to very dark places,. How to stop those triggers, that’s my worry.

Of course she is awesome clever healthy and beautiful and she seems to be carefree about this, I do not want to pre empty a situation and therefore create one.

Either way I will be here for her giving her all my love and my wisdom on the subject as much as I can.

Below one  of many website about the subject if you like more info in what are eating  disorders.

Blah!!

Why do we use long or well research(not always)awkward words to say something simple or straight forward.

I do understand it in consumerism , advertising, marketing and media . but lately I encounter it everywhere. Maybe I might be paying more attention…

I was looking at a recipe book and on the cover said that the content in the book it come from the ” Maximum authority” in sauces making malaki . Why? is the food we eat so arbitrary that we need a ranking in creating sauces. what about if suddenly a mere Cadette with not much experience decides to invent a garnish or a sauce. would we ever get to know such recipe…. Yeah it sounds ridiculous.

Sometimes I love when things are not related at all with the word use to describe them just for the sake of using an unusual  word.

For example… Flavorsome Dress… (Just came out with it or maybe I read it somewhere).Sorry a dress does not leave any impression in my sense of taste, it isn’t an edible thing it is a garment so the three senses it could be related is to my eyes/touch and even smell but it is not in my mouth unless I’m in a steamy situation or I have a weir fetish with eating fabric .

Do big words make you be more interested in things or they create expectation?. I think the latter as they dictate to you what you need to feel about things even if they don’t have anything to do with the original point/thing etc.

Well after my courageous attempt to dance with words which are so delicious and silky… I will go to do some Christmas planning including that ruthless sauce.

Purposely Miserable People

I will rant today so I’m sorry…
I run to work today as I usually do, although today for some particular reason I notice a few miserable faces about and ask to myself do most of the people need to be miserable? fine, fine and fine there are loads of humans that do.

AS I write this my argument is crumbling which is not good as now I realize, yeah why we need to pretend we are happy all the time.(boo I’m getting depressed now)

See what I did there I made myself miserable by thinking in misery and all the problems that people may or may not have to create this mood to themselves.

The worst thing is that is contagious rather like laughing. What is bored me is the purposely miserable likes to hate who ever seems to be having an ok time (neutral) is the look they give the robotic woke up in the morning need about an hour to react. like they do not have the right to be sleepy (why)another victims are the cyclist who in hind sight wasn’t paying attention to the lights and avoid the pedestrian crossing narrowly(may I say most of the time the pedestrian is not the Purposely Miserable individual). The Motorist who miss the previous mention cyclist, the list is endless.

The fun thing is when the Purposely miserable target another Purposely Miserable.(carnage)
Misery attackers will fight to the end to argue that they are the most happy reasonable individuals in the earth and they can help overcome everything…

They wake up with the intention of ruin somebody’s day, they are also an army that if they get together they compete as who make more humans miserable, is like they are hire to perform their misery and rather than “spread the love” (I do find this patronizing too… another article coming) spread bad vibes around because they can not handle be miserable by themselves.

So Please dear Purposely Miserable people, if you need to be sad or hateful for the day without a real reason just be considerate and spare others from the intention to harm.

Sorry to have subjected you to my miss-spellings.
