What has happened to the world?

As I type these, I’m on the train, trying to relax. But of course, you probably know this already, I can try but I can’t be successful in trying to stop thinking.

I find it incredibly funny and equally alarming. Gosh, once again, it just proves my theory that everything is a paradox. This young woman about my age may be obese. She has those humongous headphones and I’m pretty sure everyone on the damn train can hear the song playing. On one hand she has an iPhone, she has an iPad on the other and she’s smiling as though everything is the way it should be. Yes – all at the same time. What has happened to the world?

Well, at least quite a lot of people still read printed books. Even if e-books are also very common nowadays. I just wonder how long it would take to get rid of the printed word all together.

Somewhere Only We Know

Once upon a time, in a far far away land… nah. Fairytales never really made sense to me.

My favourite word is ubiquitous ’cause it sounds cool in my opinion but I frequently use the word “paradox”. In fact, I somehow manage to squeeze it into every single one of my academic essays. I’m also certain that it won’t end there. I’ll use the word paradox repeatedly until my last breath.

I am at once fascinated and irritated by its meaning yet it doesn’t stop me from loving it.

The last time I wrote it:

Haneke creates a masterpiece that shows the great paradox of love as the source of sublime joy and extreme suffering with unflinching honesty.

I have a love affair with words. It can’t be helped. It’s beyond my control.

I’m not afraid to admit it.
