ATTENTION!

As you mortals may have noticed, my blog layout has changed into an allegedly "christmassy" theme. You know, green and red and what not.
I just wanted to say that you all don't have to worry and that my genius remains unchanged.

The Day The World Refused To Stand Still

“I triple-quadruple-dog-DARE you”

“But I could lie to you. I mean, you don’t travel in my bus.”

“Do you know Person X?”

“Yeah, why? She’s in my bus. So?”

“I’ll ask her to keep an eye on you.”

“What? Oh, you sneaky little- FINE. You’re on. Expect disappointment. “

*death glares exchanged*

Wonder what that was? A bet being made. A bet that may change the world as we know it.

Ok, fine. Maybe not the world. Maybe just the bet-er and the bet-ee of this situation.

Dare- Try to fall asleep while on the Bus back home.

Fine. Whatever, meh. =_=

I’M SO SCARED. WOAH!

I stay awake the whole night before D-Day. Or at least for a few hours. See, because I can’t
seem to remember anything after 2:30 am. Either I slept off, or the bet-er has unleashed her legendary evil on me. O_O

I change into my morning dress with a steely glint in my eye. That may or may not have been the reflection off my glasses, but doesn’t “steely glint” sound cool?

It’s time. I crack my knuckles and wait outside my stop. At precisely 7:25 am the bus arrives with a HONK.

OKAY, DRIVER PERSON. I can, in fact, see the BIG YELLOW HUMONGOUS BUS ON MY ROAD, woakay?

I sit in my usual spot with a feeling of achievement and smugness. Pah! This is going to be a breeze.

I mean, come on. Bragging rights for the whole year?

Whoopdeedoodledoo!

The bus starts with a strangely ferocious ROAR. I slowly retreat back into my shell. How did I miss that sound for the past three weeks?

*remembers loud music blasting through headphones*

And we’re off! Ha, why did I even worry? This is so easy. Just. Fall. Asleep.
I close my eyes and am about to drift off thinking about a warm, comfy bed and a good book-

SQUEAL!!!!

"AAAAAAARRRGHH!!!” I wake with a start. No. NO.

THIS CANNOT BE HAPPENING.

I look around the bus with a dazed expression.

No way.

OH MY GOD SOME AUTO HAS BLOCKED OUR BUS!

This isn’t physically possible! How can a tiny vehicle with only three wheels block a gigantic bus?!

Our bus pwns your auto, okay?!?!?!?! So get outta the way, foo’!

Ah. It’s moved. Thank you God, you are so so kind, I will never threaten to convert to atheism again-

HONK!!!

Oh sweet mercy what is it now?!?!

At this rate, I’ll never fall asleep. I sneak a glance at Person X. She gives me an evil grin that truly and honestly looks like this.

Yikes. Where are those sleeping pills when you need them?!

And cheh.

I left a dose of Day Blogs at home. :D

Ok, quick time check. 20 minutes more.

Fine. Get drowsy in 2 minutes, and then-

BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY

Please. Shoot me now.

With a sudden JOLT, I actually end up in mid-air for about a milli-second.
Cool, but hello? Aren’t these seats supposed to be COMFY? What about your aching Gluteus Maximus?!?!?!

Okay. Just close your eyes, and count to 10. I mean, you haven’t slept for at least a quarter of the night.

1-2-3-4-5-6-

BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-

What does our government even do with our money?

Oh wait. I know.

They make them into bundles, lay them on the ground under the bitumen, and VOILA!
Your own personal road bump! It’s a win-win situation! This lets our taxes increase EVEN FURTHER!

The wonders of our democracy have finally shown its true colors!

I’m so tired. And sleepy. And wishing my bet-er wasn’t right.

Hey, we’ve reached the coast! A long strip of flat land! HAHAHAHA my bet-er doesn’t know about this bus route-

BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY-BUMPTY

Wow. Are we really paying them so much?

Oh no! I’ve reached my destination!

The bet-er has won!

Person X looks delighted. Crazy, tyrannical-

Falling

She was falling down the cascading waterfall, like an elegant dancer gliding through the air, into what she assumed to be a clear, blue river- full of promise and potential.

She refused to look down, however. Rather, she chose to look up into the horizon, the golden, beautiful horizon, where the birds seemed to fly without worry or care.

She eventually landed in the river with a great splash but she did not float.

She refused to float.

She sunk into its depth, and made a late observation- the river was neither blue nor clear. It was dark, stormy and hopeless.

Yes, she could relate to that.

She landed on the river bed. But there is no water around her. The land seemed barren and dry.

Yes, she could relate to that as well.

She sighed in frustration. What was this place? It seemed so beautiful at first. And now...

An inhumane cry pierced through her thoughts.

She looked back, and saw her old friends Fear and Anger making their way towards her. In usual circumstances, she would have greeted them with open arms.

But somehow, they did not seem to be in the mood for one of her pity parties.

She ran away, because that was what she was good at.

Unfortunately, she was too busy running to notice Friend and Family waving at her. She also did not see Hope and Love calling out her name.

Yet, she ran into Arrogance and Ignorance, Jealousy and Lies.

Laziness persuaded her to slow down and just chill but, she could not.

She had to get to Safety, the paradise she had heard of in the past.

She ran and ran, and just when she thought her lungs would give out, she teetered on the cliff of the Crater of Despair.

She looked intently at the area across the Crater. Yes, it was Safety. Her home.

She would have to cross the Crater, then. It wasn't that big, but incredibly deep. She shuddered at the thought of getting caught in it.

She gave up. After all, when was she ever brave?

She began to sit on the cliff, when Cowardice suddenly appeared from nowhere and gave her a push.

And as she fell, a thought struck her.

Her loved ones and better feelings had tried to stop her. But she just ran.

Away from the pain, the disappointment, the anger.

And into the end.

Untitled

I lie.

Like all the time.

Even when I don’t have to, I lie.

My parents don’t trust me, my friends don’t trust me, and I’m finding it hard to keep up with the lies I made in the past.

I want to change, but whenever I do something wrong, I just blurt out the most whimsical lie and avoid getting blamed or punished.

I want to change, but I can’t.

Why can't I change?

Why?
