I don’t know

Standard

I just really dislike the way people say, ”I don’t know how I did this” after some big achievment. There’s always something- planning, hard work, sacrifice, self-control- that gets you the prize. Why do people say this, then? Do they forget their toil? It puzzles me.

How easy it is to smile in texts and emails and facebook updates- the excercise of 44 muscles replaced by a combination of just 3 punctuation marks.

And you can’t argue because you can’t look beneath the surface, what used to be glass is steel now. We all pretend with ease that we are happy to see someone or happy to be somewhere, so confident in that smiley. A child only smiles when it comes from the inside. When do you? I am not against smiling, I’m just pleaing you to bring more life to it.
