The non-conformed.

(I wrote this listening to a story on the “Royal Wedding”. I’d love to say “I don’t care about it”, but I care enough to write on not caring about it. If it makes any sense.)

“His job is so much better than mine… Sigh.”, “I really wish my girlfriend was as awesome as that!” or even “You guys have an easy life, mine’s harder than anything you can imagine!”

We all are like this at least once. Even better, we all know people like this and tend to call them the “non-conformed” (there’s no antonym for this, what the hell English?), more often than not. But, to be completely honest, how’s that worthy of note? This happens, and it really shouldn’t. Not because “we shouldn’t envy” others or some random stupidity like that, no! Just because it’s, usually, just our treacherous imagination at work.

Let’s say you think your friend’s work is incredibly better than yours. Why is that? Because he works as a crime vigilante of sorts who dresses himself as a bat during the night, while you just sort out papers in your office day in and day out? Well, granted, being the Batman would make everyone envious of your “job”, but you can surely make your work better. Freshen up the place! Put a Boomer plushie on your desk!

Makes me feel like gently grabbing my shotgun.

And if you can’t, why are you in it? I mean what kind of God-forsaken place obliges you to, you know, not have fun at work as well? Hell, look at Google!

Look at it! Look! At! It!

I know it sounds like something out of an utopia, but if you dislike your job, just quit it and do something else you’re more fond of! OK, granted, from a more realistic point-of-view that’s a slightly dumb thing to do. But why work on a place or with something you don’t like at all? Yeah, sometimes it happens and there’s just no escape, but I for one defend the free-will option. You can do pretty much whatever you want, and opportunities are there, you just have to know where to look for, or how to create them. That being said, if you really can’t find a way to make your work better, either find an escape valve or do something else while in it (browsing the web and/or listening to music is highly valid).

Regarding relationships, this is an easy-going topic that can be pretty much summed up in one sentence (plus, I’d extend myself, but I don’t want to, not in this post): Shit happens.

About life in general, there are so many, but so many ways to improve it I don’t even know where to begin. But here: Ever tried looking at things from a more laughable perspective? And I don’t mean “positive”, that’s for people with a way higher concentration level than mine, I mean an actually laughable point-of-view. Things are already as sad and depressed as they can? Laugh in their face, just like I did when someone came to mug me (true story, he got nothing and I walked away laughing)! After all, complaining will do you no good, so what’s the point? If life ever taught me one thing, was that she’s a cruel mistress, almost like a dominatrix who enjoys my suffering. And I won’t give it to her so easily!

Now, if she were a real lady… Ah, such high dreams.
