Alright…seeing my impossibly laughable task ahead of me, I figure there is only one way to go about it. Since I personally as a person can’t write an article of those genre’s. I have come up with a brilliant plan. I’ll shall be someone else for the duration of writing those damn articles.
Yup…that’s the so called brilliant plan.
To be someone else.
Which come to think of it, isn’t so hard. I mean…for a large part of my life, I feel as if I’ve been leeching personality traits and skills off people. It’s not like I have much of a social gift to begin with except for adapting myself to be the people who are easily likable. So what better way to get along with people than just to…emmulate those who do it the best.
I mean…it is nothing drastic. All the core traits that I have will still there. Nothing can change the fact that I am and always will be a straight-arrowed egghead without a slightest trace of normal humor. Hence, you just…tweak the outside shell that everyone sees. It’s not exactly the hardest thing in the world.
You want cute?
I know just the person to be.
You want that boyish charm?
I have some people in mind better than me.
Sometimes it pays to be a person for the moment because when you think about it, that’s what we all are in really. We are all in a series of moments that are connected to an infinite branch of other moments we cannot see or touch until it reaches us at that right time. It doesn’t matter how we act at that particular moment of that particular time.
It just matters that we are true to what we do and why we do it.
It just matters that we don’t lose track of who we are or what we can be.
So back to this little issue of writing something I can’t write. If I can’t write it, I might as well be someone else who can write it. Be the people who are into these things, understand why they are into these things…in short…develop the vocabulary to speak what they would speak and write what they would write.
Except that it would be me wording it down in the style I have grown accustomed to.
I don’t know…I suppose with the short deadline again, it would be something of a miracle to see it be done in time with the same sort of passion and pride I have for everything I write and as I have said before, if there are miracles to perform, I’ve been told I’m the one to make them happen. Then again…if you boil everything down to what it is, it’s just something I have to do isn’t it?
Just when you think it ends, you find you have so much more to fight.
But I guess in the neverending uphill war to be free from our duties.
We still have to save some room for a warm smile.
Even if it is something you can never do alone.
