What I really do

If you have a Facebook account and have been logging on regularly to virtual stalk read your friends’ updates and whereabouts, then you would have seen this latest “What People Think I Do / What I Really Do” meme around the past two weeks.

Some of which are frankly hilarious and true to the core even though the pictures used look super 80s corny. But this meme is meant to be a spoof of those laminated “motivational” posters that were so darn popular in the early 2000s. So there.

According to Know Your Meme [via The Gawker], the “What People Think I Do” meme was created by the artist Garnet Hertz on Feb 9. Well in the weeks since then, I have seen almost every possible job being covered by creative (and quite possibly the most bo liao) people in the world. While some might wonder and ridicule people who want to tell the world how utterly boring their jobs are, I think it’s great to know the actual pain that everyone goes through in their jobs and it’s not a fairytale every day.

So this is what I used to do:

Well, it’s actually a combination of the top row from the journalist’s meme and the bottom row from news editor (which is totally ALL true):

After nodding furiously at how true the photo descriptions are, I found another meme that would be what I’d be really doing from now on. I sent the same image to my friend who has been doing the exact same thing for the past six months and she said: “How true :)” I practically beamed in public. So here it is and now you know me better already.

Mutual weirdness

I meant to post this on Valentine’s Day but WordPress decided to crash after I finished writing and it kept giving me the same error message so I gave up.

Now that the hectic past few weeks have died down a little, I have some time to repost this again and to go on a mad blogging frenzy.

“You want my opinion? We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.” - Robert Fulghum in True Love (1998)

Or as what my favourite children books’ author Dr. Seuss might say: love (and compatibility) is when two people with “mutual weirdness” get together and enjoy exploring “oh the places you will go” with each other.

Have you found your mutually weird other half who makes you incredibly happy yet?

Happy [belated] Valentine’s Day.

“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” ― Dr. Seuss
