A queen smiles while she sent her soldiers to destroy her enemies.
It was portrayed frequently, high ranking individuals mow their enemies without a single sound. They stab with a smile, and sometimes, even their enemies don’t know they’re stabbed by the people in front of them.
–w-wwhat? But stabbing people is illegal !!
Yes I know, and I’m grateful of that. I used to think I’m someone that can hide my emotion very well, but it turns out, when I finally get comfortable with myself because I meet great friends, my true self surface ( I didn’t use resurface because I realized all this time I never had really close friends like this ) . If at high school I had the chance to evaluate my melancholic self. Now I got the chance of evaluating the other side of myself, the me that have little to no self restraint.
Okay, sorry, I began to drift to another topic. I’ll go back.
–There are people I want to stab. I won’t mention it here but the tops of my lists are : The Y that always reply with a certain word I don’t like. I think she is egoistical, and only latch to us when she needs us. The A, well shit, her initial says it all, an achiever. Maybe I’m partly jealous of her, but well, she was bossy. Not just bossy but also a bit manipulative. It totally piss me off that she told me what to say (down to the exact words). Well the part of her that was so ambitious in every aspect of life, like dieting, honing drawing skill, and lessons are good I guess. I wish I have a half of her dedication to tasks and homework (just a half because she pisses everyone else in her group because of her ambitiousness).
But I have to admit her results are one of the best in the whole year, maybe. I feel a little bit apprehensive in the future, putting aside X factors, going the conventional way, I think she will have more success in career then me. (But then again its how I define success tho). So for short, she is the number one people I want to stab. (Plus several others dislike her so my dislike is kinda fueled)
The trouble is, modern day people didn’t stab physically. There so much way to stab. My goal is to stab her without making her feel stabbed, but somehow gets me the satisfaction of ‘stabbing’ her. I’ll list some possible methods of ‘stabbing’
- Personal Acts-very visible (status : accidentally comes out, successfully making myself suspicious of our friendship ever since).
This shit happens at maybe 4th semester. I have workloads of duty, plus my Design Class are heavy on me. This reflects in my words and acts, so bad that she personally address it to me. I apologized, but I know that forwards, our friendship would not be the same anymore. I used to visit her room so often, damn. I don’t like the way this friendship turns but dang, I was kinda angry too because sometimes it seems that she didn’t appreciate me like others, like, she gave D more attention, buying birthday gifts for T . Maybe it’s my fault, but the thing is, when you have more friends, you don’t have to overthink and focus yourself on others. But the lesson in this is to make myself calm before act or speak.
- Words- very visible, risky. I repeat RISKY. Any form of words, either speaking or chatting are more or less, can’t be taken back, and more likely to scar.
Enough on this, the story and lesson are similar to above. Only I often speak bad of her behind her back. I know it’s not good, but i gave me a little tinge of satisfaction after saying things I’m not comfortable with her. Because, if I said it to her face, I am 90% sure she will justify herself, her ego bruised, and our friendship ( which already a little bit awkward) turns sour and boom. War. Either open war or cold war. Or both. Shit. Maybe both. Plus, talking shits behind her will reach her anyway, thanks to loudmouth peers we have. (Yes, there are several squads in our Year, and to be honest, I don’t like some of them )
- Achievements. Well shit, this will be hard, but I’ll try, little by little
- Beauty (?). I have soooo little self control so it’s gonna be real hard, like, really, plus my skin aren’t good but I have to try, right.
- Flexibility and Friendliness. I have only a little advantage here since I’m hot headed and not really wise, but I think I’m generally likable between our squad. Or it’s just me who don’t know what my friends complaints are.
Okay so maybe I want to reduce point 1 and 2 (significantly), and try to improve on 4 and 5. And if controlling my tongue and acts may count as fake, then so be it. Adults are going to be fake after all. So maybe it’s better to start practicing.
….Just occur to me that being fake makes you always think others are fake. I think maybe I need to change my mindset as well? Hmm…
Okay that’s it.
