We are the change

23 Jun

My friend Ana is new on WordPress- yes even more “new” than me ^^
And she wrote this really nice article about something that is going way too wrong in Mauritius and, undoubtedly, throughout the world too. And since I share her views on the matter, I’m sharing her thoughts with you:

Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world right in the eye. – Helen Keller

From the first days of our socialization into this wide, wide world, we have been taught things that were supposed to make us grow up into better individuals. We were introduced to the notion of politeness and were sanctioned if we were rude. Respect and integrity were displayed everywhere, in movies and newspapers, as virtues that anyone should have if we wanted to be honest and responsible citizens of this ‘perfect’ world. We were shaped to fit. And those who didn’t went straight to the societal trash.

But, as a child, I did not understand any of that, because I was still learning the notion of right and wrong. However, some less glorious qualities still  confused me. I did not understand the word ‘jealousy’. I did not know that I had to…

The Magic Queen Of The World

2 Feb

Lately, I’ve been getting really upset about my future. I am 17 and I will finish high school this year and I still have no idea what kind of career I want to pursue. No frigging idea. Nada. Actually that’s not true, I’ve had plenty of ideas but none of them seem to suit my very difficult mind. I’ve wanted to be a writer, then a screenwriter, then a movie director, then a journalist, then an actress, then a businesswomen, then an interior decorator and I keep changing my mind. You could say I am fickle minded- and you would probably be right- but there’s more to it than being inconstant. I have two main worries about my career: wages and excitement. I really wish I could find myself a super well-paid job(I’m not keeping my hopes up too high on that though) but what matters the most to me is that I don’t want to get bored. I don’t want a job where it’s everyday the same thing. Filing and doing sums or sitting at a desk in an office staring at a PC everyday is not my thing. I need to express myself, be creative and maybe be surrounded by people like me oh! and make loatsa money. Yeah… Maybe I am asking too much… But then I’m still keeping my fingers crossed! 😀

My friends are telling me not to worry too much about my future career- they say I still have time. The thing is I’m a worrier and I panic a lot when I over-think and I’ve been over-thinking a lot these days. My boyfriend is being a real sweetie; encouraging me in whatever direction I come up with and only making fun of me every two hours. He’s even already willing to invest in my amazing business-to-be. Whatever it could be. Awww ^^

I’m probably just gonna ruin him though.

Anyway, in an attempt to get those career prospects off my mind for a while, I’m gonna make a little list of stuff I would do if I were The Magic Queen of the World- my ultimate dream job- at least for one day. Yep. I’ve always wanted to rule the world. (Pinky: “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?” The Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!”) Muahahahaha!

1. Eliminate racism, homophobia, cancer and hunger with my magic wand! What? Anything is possible for The Magic Queen of the World!

2. Make the poorest kids in the world switch place with the richest celebrities- like in Freaky Friday. It’d sure be fun to watch.

3. Get some really smart scientist to build me a machine that will send me to the world of Pokémon! Or use my magic wand to get there by myself. The machine is a cool idea though..hmm..

4. Ban the construction of dirty energy powered factories or electrical plants. Death penalty for whoever disobeys. We don’t have time to play with Mother Nature anymore.

5. Eat my favorite food all day. And since I don’t have one favorite food there’s sure to be a shortage of crepes, pasta, burritos, nuggets, biryani, boulettes and so on. No I’m not ashamed. Food is my best friend. The best friend I can eat without being accused of cannibalism.

6. Bring back the green Creme Soda to Mauritius. I miss that drink.. It should rain Creme Soda sometimes..

7. Make a gigantic stock of blue WKD vodka for when I’m down or when I want to party. But then I never want to party. I hope I’ll be down often then.

8. Get myself my own private cook. Give him a superpower that makes him never get tired.

9. Stop time. Get a degree in everything I want and try out all my dream careers.

10. Keep my dog alive forever. And make him Prince of the World. Get him a private cook too.

That’s all I can think of right now because it’s late and I’m sleepy. It’s a nice list I think..but it’s not the list of things I would do if I took over the world. No..that would be may more violent an bloody. Joking 😛 or am I?
