It’s Bored in Study Mondays again

I need a better title for this. I’ll be posting a new blog entitled Stupid People Irk me, it’s about things people do that make me mad. It’s going to one post with links to other mini posts explaining my thoughts on things. I’m supposed to get my package In the mail today, the dial up tour package, yay, (okay I wrote this in study earlier today and its 810 and ups still isn’t here and I’m extremely anxious) hey let’s do another would you rather because the quotes around the room aren’t interesting this time. (Originally it was supposed to be would you rather but somewhere between me trying to think and write my mind began to wander and think of quotes)

Would you rather be rich with fake friends or poor with real ones?

I think this is pretty simple. I like happiness therefore I’m going to want real friends to have fun with, friends that make me laugh and understand me not ones that are basically paid to pretend they do.

Sayings that I randomly come when I’m bored and just thinking and things that pops into my head

  1. Give a man a fish he’ll eat for a day teach a man to fish he’ll starve while trying to impress girls with his new manly skill
  2. People that live in glass houses shouldn’t do anything that involves removing clothing
  3. Procrastination never procrastinates to make you procrastinate otherwise there would be no procrastination (I actually broke my brain trying to make this make sense)
  4. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me except of course if what you said was hurtful…
  5. *looks around sees a jabillion text books* I wonder if I can make a fort out of those
  6. I’m all for animal rights but I think it would be hilarious to see someone from PETA and a workers labor union society go to Macy’s during December sit on Santa’s lap and inform him that he’s overworking the reindeer and elves in the north pole and then proceed to give him legal documents threatening to sue if he doesn’t add benefits
  7. Counting sheep only keeps me up longer, I either try to stay away seeing how far I can count or get distracted around #43 and my mind begins to wander
  8. After anyone tell me my sarcasm hurts (only with my friends I wouldn’t wanna be jerk by insulting(jokingly) someone I don’t know) I say I’m sorry I didn’t know sarcasm hurts I would never ever use sarcasm to insult you. It’s not like sarcasm can be used for insults; the sad thing is they take me seriously lol
  9. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop, I don’t like tootsie pops but I wanna know so bad
  10. I notice that even teachers roam the hall ways they look into class rooms to see if they know anybody they can wave to
  11. Dear Mr. Creep sitting across the room from me, I can see you’re staring at me, please stop, I don’t even know who you are
  12. -Don’t get even
    -But don’t you want the world to be balances
    – no make it uneven so it can be on the good side

Would you rather live in a world of smoke and mirrors or bask in the clarity of the truth?- Raquel M. Sotto.

I was stuck in study, what many of you might know as study hall and I had nothing to do, nothing at all. (In fact this is where I’m writing this except on a piece of paper and not the computer but since I know I’ll post it when I’m home, I’m trying to write in the past tense) and I was looking around the class room and I saw a quote that said “Would you rather live in a world of smoke and mirrors or bask in the clarity of the truth”- Raquel M. Sotto. Yes, I’m at the type of school where teachers do cheesy things like put up inspirational quotes hoping it will somehow affect us. I’ll be honest some of it actually does seep in with me. Then again I’m an over thinker who reads stuff around the classroom when they’re bored. Back to the story I decided to answer the question and see what debate I can spark up. Because honestly if I don’t I’m going to die of boredom. The one time I actually wish I had hw…. Each sides of the question has its own problems. Living in a world where no one ever lies sounds good but it’s probably horrible. I mean yes you’ll know who likes you, who wants to be your friend, who the jerk is that stole your cookie but at the same time you’ll know what everyone else is really thinking and I mean really. And people can be mean. I know I can. I don’t judge other people before I know them, if someone judges a random person on the street I usually end up make up excuses for them on their behalf, because you never know. But when I do know someone I can be quite opinionated but usually just with personality. Like if you’re the type person who always asks me if I did the homework just so you can copy it every.single.day instead of saying no like a normal person with a back bone would, I just leave it in my locker that way when they ask me for it I can honestly say it’s in my locker. I know that’s stupid but I have this weird issue with saying no, it has something about not wanting to hurt other people’s feelings. I understand copying once but come on enough is enough… I digress too much don’t I. My point is I would tell them exactly how I feel and that they should do their own damn homework. The truth can also hurt if someone hates you for some reason, or thinks you have horrible b.o or finds you annoying or just doesn’t like your face. Sure those are useful things to know but having many people comment on your flaws every single day can be damaging to your self-esteem. Now besides flaws what about people telling you things you just didn’t want need to know. Your best friend could be in love with your boyfriend or they could have some weird fetish of licking their socks off they wear it. Think about food places, could you imagine going to burger king and having the employees tell you exactly how they make it or what’s exactly in it and for all you health freaks out there how many calories it has and which part of it is worth how much. What about restaurants? Think about having a waiter tell you “I spit in your food”, “really? 3 extra chocolate cakes and a diet coke”, “maybe you should lay off the desert there tubby”, “Are you sure you just want a salad you’re a stick” instead of saying “enjoy your meal”. The world may be safer but it just might be scarier too. Can you imagine twitter if everyone spoke their mind… never mind twitter would probably be the same minus the ads. But therapists would be downright scary. So don’t think I want to live in a completely honest world. Now a world of smoke and mirrors sounds bad too. Yah people would be forced to compliment you, key word forced, but so many people would be deceived. And lawyers and car dealers would love it. You’d go to big Sal’s Auto Shop (not a real place as far as I know i just wrote down the first thing to pop into my head) and he’ll sell you a crappy car from 1952 and you’ll think it’s the best thing in the world. Buy I guess with rose-colored glasses you’ll always think it’s great until it stalls in the middle of the highway and some huge truck runs you over . Yah happy fantasy world isn’t looking so great now is it? And for the odd reason that some college guy is reading this think of beer goggles. And as for the lawyers they’d screw over all the good people and there will be criminals running amuck. The earth would be destroyed right now if we lived in this type of world. That’s why if I had to choose I’d pick the completely honest world. I think I’d learn to adjust.

I’m sorry this is extra long class is 45 minutes and I over think waaaaay too much… Which one would you choose?
