The art of winging life

Like boredom , winging is a phenomenon that  I am an expert on. To be honest , I am pretty sure my existence was based purely on my parents ‘winging it’ seeing as I am the last child after 4 years and we are usually accidents. Now if you don’t know what ‘winging it’ is , then clearly your life is more boring than my own and no it is not applying winged eyeliner. I would like to think it is just me being stupid and lazy and so in order to pass school and life I resort to improvising at the last minute and hoping for the best , but if I want to be profound about it : since humans don’t have wings , winging it is like flying without wings and being brave .

"Sometimes, you gotta fall before you fly."

Since I am the master of procrastination and winging it is basically second nature to me and just because I am so kind and wonderful I would like to share some tips an secrets on how to master the art of ‘winging it’

STEP 1

Procrastinate to the best of your ability , leave everything for the last minute so you have a reason to wing it. This usually goes hand in hand with being disorganised and just plain done with everything school or life related

So true 😂

STEP 2

Remain calm , there is no point in stressing you have already reached the point of no return

STEP 3

Make sure you have really cool friends . It’s all fun and games to wing life but it doesn’t work if you don’t have a support system of amazing friends who actually study and do their homework ,so of course they can help you out. Sadly my friends I just like me and instead we all just band together and make the most of what we have. Having cool friends also means that they push you to go up and face your fears especially in terms of your crush.

I love her <3

STEP 4

have a cool mother like mine that will wake you up at 4am so you can do your homework and orals due for that day

AND LASTLY

STEP 5

Exude confidence , even if you don’t feel it , pretend you do and it will all work out in the end

However fun it may be to go through life winging it , it can also be quite stressful , so maybe I do not advise it but it’s the best feeling when it all works out when you wing it. So give it a try if you dare and wish me luck in my future endeavours like the book oral I have tomorrow and haven’t even started .

Doubtful about my doubt

Doubt , is defined by some weird website as : to be uncertain about; consider questionable or unlikely; hesitate to believe. To me it is the feeling that it probably one day  going to ruin my life. One of my biggest character flaws , and trust me there are many , is self doubt. I wish I could go through life without hesitation , just knowing I was on the right path and taking risks when necessary , but instead I wallow in my doubt , as I do in my pity.

Here are a few cases where doubt comes out to play:

During a test:

I have always been told to trust my gut and go with my first instinct , it is usually right .. but do I listen? No , of course not , doubt creeps into the little dark corners of my mind and I strike off my answer , write a new one , that I have thought over numerous times and in the end , my first answer was right. Times like this make me want to stand up and bang my head against the wall , repeatedly , because I obviously am not using those brain cells anyway.

Facebook

with my blog:

I am probably more honest to the internet than I am to myself , so thank you internet for allowing me to create a window to my soul. The point is though , when it comes to my blog , I scrutinise every little detail.  Is it just for me to vent or do I aim to please? During my dry spell of no posts , I have drafted over 10 , and all on varying topics , from people and my long weekend to boys and bras. I have however decided that although I aim to please , this was made for me , by me and if you don’t like what you see , well stop reading ( no , I am lying , come back , I love you ,DONT LEAVE ME)

!

 

 

The unknown:

practically half my life is spent pondering about the unknown and my future and if I will even have one . Whether I doubt if I did well on a maths test ( high hopes man) or if I will ever get married and leave my catlady persona behind me , doubt consumes me and keeps me from being free .

How i feel😔

I know usually don’t go all deep in my blog posts and here I am again doubting if I should even post this , but I sincerely hope that I do not remain this basket case forever , for life has a path of its own for me , yeah  I know that was completely clichéd , or was it? ( see doubt is everywhere)

P.S I DOUBT PEOPLE WILL LIKE OR READ THIS ( PROVE ME WRONG?)

Everything happens for a reason

-.-"

Ahh yes I am aware that my title is clichéd , but I cannot conjure up enough brain power to come up with anything better . The past week of my life has been mentally exhausting and physically draining and I have let the precious frame work on this blog crumble and seep between the cracks of my life.

The second term of school had begun and I needed to make amends for the first , great amends, this involved throwing myself at school work and slaving away to my extra circulars which evidently they are a lot off , also  my laptop has been kept captive and I am still devising a plan on how to get it back , if you’re out there laptop , stay strong.

Every school day :?

However melodramatic I am in this post , I mean every single word and to refer back to the title , it seems like things in my life are finally starting to fall into place . I am at stable ground with a new / old/ reconnected friend , that I thought was lost to me for good and I , along with my trusty team managed to secure a place in the finals of an intense general knowledge quiz ( prayers and praise are needed)

But I owe the all time high of my week to a book. I read very avidly but lately T.V series had wormed their way and had made me forget about the delights of literature , a book oral for English is what united me to possibly one of my favourite books and I haven’t even finished it yet. The book is called Lexicon by Max Barry and is considered a conspiracy thriller , it deals with the power of words , manipulation , brain chemistry and persuasion , while maintaining an underlying plot , I highly recommend it....

 

I will try my best to come up with something that I usually post about life and being a teenager and what not but possibly over the impending public holidays . I also have a speech to write for Monday and no topic , help and good luck shall be appreciated but for now I leave you with a quote from Lexicon and some nifty questions from the book that tell me a lot about a person

“The most fundamental thing about a person is desire. It defines them. Tell me what a person wants, truly wants, and I’ll tell you who they are, and how to persuade them.”
Max Barry, Lexicon
