Funny, or better Strange, People

I am watching the Britain’s Got Talent show and can’t help myself but wonder why would anyone want to go in front of a large audience and present themselves as mindless, talentless idiots? What drives those people?

Is it a desire to become famous and make big bucks? Or is it a drive to be seen and recognized? Whatever it is… I think we all should first honestly look at ourselves and ask the following questions :

– do I really have something that can even remotely be called a talent?
– do I really have a beautiful or at least a distinctive voice?
– can I move in such a way that it could be called dancing?
– maybe I am so good at doing something that others might perceive as interesting that I just have to demonstrate this skill to the world?
– am I so irresistibly beautiful/handsome that just by simply showing up in front of the I would make everyone cheer?

If the answer is no to the above questions, then why would anyone want to embarras themselves? What is so good about getting on the Britain’s Got Talent, having judges pretty much calling you a talentless idiot, and walking off the stage while hearing hysterical laughing from the audience?

OK, I would kind of understand when I see a young person on the stage but what drives those that are 30, 40 or even older? Shouldn’t they be wiser and have the ability to realistically evaluate their chances.
Is this show and other similar shows are yet another examples of the world gone mad?


Blogging is not easy

It is not easy to be a blogger. I tried to force myself to write in my blog but failed every single time. It is like I hit a wall the moment I sit in front of a computer trying to write a sentence. And the most irritating part is that I have lots to think about and discuss with friends but all of that mysteriously disappears the moment I try to put it in writing…

I do realize that I am not unique and that probably there are plenty of people like me who had trouble blogging but somehow successfully overcame this “disability”. And I wonder what they did to succeed?

definition of blogging

Is it “I will not get up until I finish this sentence/paragraph/page?” Or is it like – finish writing and reward yourself? I would really like to keep this blog alive and add posts to it if not on a daily then on a weekly basis.

Good luck to everyone who is trying to start blogging but is struggling with it just like I do.
