Fair warning, my blog is an incoherently wry concoction of pretentious unfinished thoughts.
I’d say that I like to read but I don’t. You like colors; you like foods; you like Saturdays; but you don’t just like reading. To read does not merely mean getting an idea of what it said, but rather, opening a doorway to the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. Every tangible thing in the world disappears into the darkest corners of your mind, entrapped for a split moment. Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.
So no, I will not say I like reading.
But I do like the smell of coffee, the sound of rain and the little petticoats that people wear in autumn. I like shows like How I Met Your Mother, Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, the Big Bang Theory, Avatar the Last Air Bender and Forrest Gump. My favourite movie is Definitely, Maybe but my favourite director is Hayao Miyazaki. I like history, art and porcupines too. I like quotes like “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” or “Saying ‘I notice you’re a nerd’ is like saying, ‘Hey, I notice that you’d rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you’d rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?’ In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even ‘lame’ is kind of lame. Saying ‘You’re lame’ is like saying ‘You walk with a limp.’ Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he’s done all right for himself.”
But I absolutely don’t like M. Night Shyamalan.
Marceline from Adventure Time is cool though.
As you can tell from my poorly structured, truncated-sentenced, pathetic excuse of an introduction, I am not all that great at creative writing either and am just a tad pretentious. Just a tad though.
