If you can't kick ass at it, don't do it.
~ Jessica Zafra's philosophy in life (Twisted Travels)


writing this at 2:38 in the morning, after revising 40 articles.

i do not know if i am being punished by some cosmic judicial system for something that i have done in the past (was telling off that guy to go take a hike that bad??) but i do not know why after years of editing other people's work here i am, with probably the truest test of my patience as a human being. my eyes feel like they are about to slide off their sockets after reading through millions and millions of jumbled words and trying to make sense of them, grouping them so that they'd at least appear comprehensible to some idiot who'd have time to read. if i had known that i would be giving a crash course on writing i would have applied as an instructor in BU, maraya pa.

why people insist on doing things they suck at is beyond me. and to repeatedly do it. what is it? is it a form of self-discovery? a spiritual pilgrimage of some sort? a punishment for snotty, smug people like me?

Such is life. I suspect karma may have something to do with it, together with some other considerations like, say, ineffective screening process and a black cat crossing your way somewhere in time.

It's hard to give some people the kick in the butt or ax in the head, always difficult. You could put a quick refresher course for the offenders, afterwhich the next offense could merit a murderous look, a private put-down, or an altogether trashing in a mash of dangling modifiers, non-words, attempted sentences, pseudo-paragraphs and the likes.

Can the offenders; credit them for chutzpah; and have a cold drink.

finally, a group of words that i can comprehend without my eyebrows knitting together =)

aah, you know how i am with these things, don't you? i wish i had more patience in this area but i just don't.

cold drink? i do not even have the energy for it. all i want is world peace, world peace!

oh well. i don't know your story that much so there's no space for solicitors like me to give some helping words. i just hope that things would flow smoothly.

more patience.
