    Say No More, Please!

    "Say no more, please!"... That's what I keep on telling to myself when I happened to be with an ego-centric person... So annoying to be with a person who loves to talk much about himself/herself... He/She don't even give me a chance to talk or respond to whatever he or she's...

    I have a blog for people with the urge

    and need to vent. It's like here, only smaller, more personal. And, you use an alias. It's such a cool place, filled up by a very twisted, beautiful darkness. Have yoy got something to share? Inbox me.

    Outer Space.

    If someone is talking to me, or if I am in class and my teacher is doing a boring lecture, I will often daydream, or space out. Especially if the conversation just makes no sense, my eyes will wander off elsewhere.

    Omg I hate the regular conversations

    that go "What are you doing?" "Nothing." "HBY". I just try to avoid all those messages. Is this really what society has come to?

    The Bear

    Like a bear Out into the air I stare. A conversation should Say everything it would, To any hearer that could. Boredom settles in, Playing on the mind worse than gin, A grimace never a grin! Talk of things interesting, Talk never depressing, Speak kindly and stressing.

    Hope this doesn't sound rude.

    . But if you're gonna message me.. At least make it something to grab my attention and not the same old "hi" or "how are you" or "hey how are you doing?" .. I get messages every day.. All these conversations are the same! Say something different ... Say something intriguing that...

    Boredom

    I have a friend who likes to talk about herself. (blah, blah, blah, blah, etc.) I find myself staring into space, working my mind to something else. And there, I'm nodding my head in her babble, saying : "oh's", 'really?', 'yeah', 'hmmm'. In time she notices it. And there, I look...

    Intelligent conversation is an overrated misnomer. Mostly it's people trying to impose their puny egos over the audience
