My dad says with a scream you don’t accomplish anything. But sometimes you have to let it out. At least it makes me feel better. But mostly I scream internally. There so much injustice in the world and people with no common sense. You can’t carry all the problems on your shoulders though. You need to concentrate on your own life. There has always been and always will be idiots in the world. All you can do is not being one. Think with your own head because that what it’s for.
A lot of things annoy me and sometimes I can’t control my temper. I try no to be too upset because there are things you just have to accept. When I was younger a lot of things got to me but I’ve learned to look on things differently. It’s really a waste of energy to take things personally. Some people’s behaviour makes me want to scream though. Easy things are difficult for some. Like throwing lit in the bin or park their car between the lines. I wonder how this kind of people can sleep at night. Idiots don’t know they’re idiots so that must be it. Maybe people like that take away jobs from other people who does have something in their heads.
Not only people can be stupid or simple-minded. But also these Bots on the internet. Or whatever give stupid or weird suggestions on different platforms. One of these is job search places like LinkedIn. Like this “do you know this person?” No, I don’t, idiot. Just because people you follow there know them it doesn’t mean I do. I get so annoyed with the whole thing and you can’t even make it stop. Then LinkedIn suggests jobs I haven’t even studied. Not only there but on the e-services on the unemployment centre’s website as well. I look for a job in web or graphic design and not in sales or any other job. It’s not even worth screaming for. More about eye-rolling than a scream. I’m not qualified for any of the suggested jobs so there is no point applying.
Everything is so fake these days. You have to be an attention seeker to get anything. Posting about your life on Instagram or any other social media place is the only way to go. “No ugly people allowed” kind of attitude. Even a job search is a fashion show. Only the most outgoing and ‘in your face’ people get a chance. “Look at me, look at me” promotion. Want to start your own business? Show yourself and ‘open sesame’ Maybe not quite like that but I hope you know what I mean. Things are so shallow today. A lot of people want that sparkling personality in their company. But what if you’re nothing like that. Then you’re discriminated and left in the corner. The work world shouldn’t work like it does now. People get burn-outs because of work overload and the other part have none job at all. Job search really is unfair and that makes me want to scream the most.
I speak 3 languages, Finnish, Swedish and English. I also speak sarcasm but most people don’t get it so I don’t use it very often. I just roll my eyes. There are so many stupid people out there who you can roll your eyes to. Or simple people but stupid is a more powerful word. Like in Pet shop boys song, ‘I’m with stupid’, “Is stupid really stupid or a different kind of smart?” Everyone does stupid things sometimes but some take it too seriously. For me, stupid is not being able to do the most simple things like closing a gate or switching a light off. Unless you’ve have some kind of disability and you can’t do those things. People with no common sense are usually the stupid ones. Or maybe it’s just ignorance. People who only think about themselves are also stupid and there are a lot of those. Sometimes I get the feeling I’m the only with a brain. Others are just headless hens running around.
It feels no one speaks my language. I always felt I’ve been misunderstood. Not about what I say but what I am about. People judge you by only looking at you or meeting you and then think that’s what you are. But there’s more than meets the eye. It seems people’s intelligent stops there after they’ve met you. That’s one kind of stupidity, giving up on you too soon. I don’t know how people find any friends in the first place. Maybe I just haven’t met them. I never seem to have anything in common with people. Now even in Helsinki Design School. I don’t think I’ll become friends with any of them. When the education is over that’s it. The same happened last time I went to this school. Maybe I’m just too boring to become friends with. But whatever. It doesn’t hurt me much. It’s better to be alone than be with the wrong people. I don’t need more drama in my life. It’s much nicer to meet new people anyway and not get stick with old ones.
Being rejected by other people doesn’t hurt as much it hurt to be rejected by a job. Not getting that internship still bums me up. Especially when they still have the opportunity open. The interview went well from my part. It was unpaid and still, they didn’t want to give me a chance. Maybe it’s an age thing. It was meant for young people. I know it’s old news that I didn’t get it. I moved on but still when I think about it, it sucks big time. If I can’t even get an unpaid job, how can I get a paid one? In the dark moments, I think of giving up the whole job search and live on well-fare for the rest of my life. But I don’t want to wait for an opportunity that will probably never come. Rejections can make you feel you’re not good enough to be hired. It’s the stupidity of the employers where the fault is. They expect too much and judge a person by how they act in the job interview. If you get one that is which is probably the most frustrating thing when you don’t. I will never succeed in job interviews because I can’t be something I’m not. Therefore, I’m not fit enough for their company but it’s probably not meant to be.
It’s really other people’s problem if they don’t speak the same language as me. I understand myself and that’s what matters. There is always someone who tries to change the person you are. But it’s their stupidity and it has nothing to do with you.
Got your attention? This post is not really a feast though. Boring more like it. Or it depends what boring is. For me, it’s reading uninteresting things on social media. Using it is like talking to a wall or like space where no one hears your screams. I don’t know why I bother posting on Twitter. It’s really rare I get any reactions. Maybe my posts are only interesting to me. People expect you to comment on their posts but they don’t give any to you. The Internet can be so frustrated. You never know if someone reads your things. Like this blog. Sometimes I’m paranoid people like a post only because of the blog title photo and don’t read the post at all. Of course, most do. At least I hope so. Thanks if you do.
Searching for advice from the internet can be annoying too. There are so many different ways to say things. But all this advice doesn’t work for everyone. How to get a job. What to wear on a date. How to start a business. How to get more followers on your blog/social media account. And so on. Everything is romanticised. Real life is different. Things don’t work for everyone. Some people’s lives are destined to fail. They don’t win money. Get their dream job. Find Mr/Miss Right. Travel the world etc. There’s a lot of experts out there who give advice to other people but everything won’t work. You need luck in this world. Even better if you’re young and pretty/handsome. You have to look and be in a certain way to get accepted. Sometimes I hate people. There are so many stupid people out there. Before searching for intelligent life outside earth, maybe they should find them on this planet first. Maybe stupidity is the new sexy. There have always been stupid people but now there seems to be born one each day. Smart advice can look stupid too.
People might not be stupid but they take photos where they look stupid. You see a lot of selfies like that. Someone actually wants to make a fool of themselves in public. You see them in reality shows that I absolutely despise. Programs like that make people stupid. If you want to rest your mind then watch cat videos on Youtube for example. At least those are fun unlike shows like Big brother and crap like that. But who am I to judge. People have the right to watch what they want. If they want to use their energy to that then so be it. As long as I don’t have to watch them. Any reality shows where people make a fool of themselves are in my ‘no way’- list. I’ve got better things to do than wasting my time on those things. People post so many stupid things on the internet because it’s so easy. You can post your opinions anonymously and no one would know who you are. That’s why bullying is so easy. It’s online and it stays there. If stupidity would be a crime, there would be a lot of people getting arrested right now. All we can do is not acting stupid or say stupid things. If we act like any other stupid person there would be no smart people left. So try to be smart about, OK?
