Oh look, you are strong and will find happiness no matter which situation you are in?
Why don’t we make you feel guilty of your default happiness, disregard your emotions and feelings, try our best to push you to a place where we find it convenient, so that you anyway will find happiness eventually, while we all very comfortably ignore to see that we are taking away what that is making you happy here, for a change, so that it can give everyone the illusion of normalcy.
- Everyone around you.

Penser plus loin
Gotta try something like this on canvas!
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
- 'IF' , by Rudyard Kipling.
George Orwell’s 6 rules for writers.
- Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.
- Never use a long word where a short one will do.
- If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.
- Never use the passive where you can use the active.
- Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
- Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.
It’s funny how life is.
Things hit you when you have almost given up on everything, and just holding on because you have to exist, and not live.
That is when happiness us measured on how other people love and see us. That is when our preferences, our love towards people, take a backseat, because that existence only happens when you want to live.
And then it hits you.
A chance. A second life. And you won’t lose it. Simply because you have lost it once before, and you know what it is to be, there.
And this time, if you do, there won’t be anything to hang on to.
Lucky some people are, who get this second life.
What you need:
Pasta-Penne (lesser the quantity, the better, since we are Beta testing)
Cheese(Optional, also if you know when to add it)
Usual Indian Fresh-Cut Veg mix you add to noodles and what-not.(Optional)
Stir-Fry Schezwan Sauce
Tomato Sauce, free from Chilli-Garlic
Big Onion, Ketchup, Oregano, and other seasoning (for serving, Optional)
A Microwave Oven, or something to boil pasta
Ranch Salad Dressing
What I did:
1. Boil Pasta to Medium-Soft. In Microwave, in Full Power, 2 min Water boil, put Pasta (1/4 quantity of water used), boil for 5-7 mins.
2. While at the last min, Prepare Frying pan, Use enough Olive Oil, When it starts to boil, change to simmer flame, add Chilli Sauce. Add very little water for consistency. Please take care, oil will burst. Add the Deep Fry Schezwan Sauce. Add enough salt (please take salt of Mayo to be added, and of the sauces, into consideration)
3. Change Flame back to full. After half a minute, add a small quantity Ranch Dressing (1 tsp min), Stir, Add the Pasta, taken out of the Boiling water directly. Keep flame for half a minute, then Change to simmer flame.
4. Add Enough Mayo. Just enough to reach everywhere, Not to cover everything. Add a little Schezwan Sauce. Stir. Just as the Pasta starts turning, take it from the flame or it will start to overburn. Pasta will be Medium- Soft to touch.
5. Drain Oil, move Pasta to a container, Add enough Mayo, Ranch Dressing, Tomato Sauce. Mix. (Please use gloves or a stirring spoon, avoid direct hand contact because IT IS NOT HYGIENIC)
6. Add Dressing. Serve with Onion-Cucumber Slices, Mayo, Ketchup. Sprinkle Oregano, and other dressings of choice + Fresh green Veggies for your kid. Serve Warm. Tadah!
