anigif_enhanced-buzz-6357-1355938451-9

A super-short post.

I know you’re there… Deciding on whether to read the rest of this post or not.

I’m not talking about you, I’m talking about that voice in your head right at this moment that is reading this.

What accent does it have when you read my blog posts? Do you read them in your voice or do you read them in mine? Continue reading

Blog 56 – Do Professional Opinions Exist?

may_i_have_your_opinion_please_copy

Do professional opinions exist?

Of course they exist… or do they?

Let’s dig a little deeper though.

I’ll give you a little insight as to what happened on a particular WordPress blog the other day…

A blogger had posted about war and asked for comments regarding military intervention between countries etc.

I commented saying that “I am not a fan of military intervention unless it was a VERY LAST resort and that a life lost is a life lost, regardless of what side you’re on.” Continue reading

Blog 55 – Extra Bright Selfies – Why Bother?

voldemort3

2013 was undoubtedly the year of the selfie.

Don’t worry, I haven’t got an issue with that.

But what creeps me out is the extra-bright selfie.

You know… the light intensive photos.

Blog 54 – Demons run when a good man goes to war

demons_run_by_falconflight13-d4hj85w

No humour, no punchline. Just pure bullshit. Views make me feel warm and fuzzy inside so just go ahead and read it.

(Don’t judge me)

Demons run. Demons run when a good man goes to war.

Pat yourself on the back if you know where the title is from. Slap yourself if you don’t. (Comment if you know where I stole the title from)

What with people still on-about their resolutions for 2014… here’s a likkle pep talk/motivational speech sorta thing. It’s more for myself and fellow bloggers than for the general public to read. But don’t stop reading now. Trust me, there’s no turning back… Continue reading

Blog 53 – Why the New Year is like Facebook…

2014 fb syd

First of all, what did y’all think of the “Xmas 2013 special” on my blog?

What?

What do you mean you haven’t read it?

Ah, well there wasn’t an Xmas special you see. That’s probably why… Continue reading

Blog 52 – Update on The Kidnapping

kidnappingedited

It’s me again.

Don’t spill your drinks, It’s only a flying visit.

Not the usual article from myself, however.

Here’s what’s up.

I’m confused at what to do with The Kidnapping…

For my newer readers, no I am not plotting a kidnapping, nor do I intend to be kidnapped in the foreseeable future (Or ever, for that matter)… Continue reading

Blog 51 – Stopping half way through a sentence – Why Bother?

silence

So some (none) of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for about 2 weeks. Sure I miss the occasional weekly post… But for two darn weeks I went silent.

I went quiet quiet. not even a tweet from either @EssWhyDeeBlog or @EssWhyTech

Sure, It isn’t a huge deal. But what if there was a deeper meaning to the silence?

Just think… Continue reading

Blog 50 – What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger – Interpreted

tumblr_m8twirEAHd1qglm58

I’ve tuned down the humour for this article. It’s genuinely something to ponder about.

“What doesn’t kill you, make you stronger” is a phrase that has always been rather popular with the unwashed masses. Heck, It’s a pretty darn good saying an’ all, don’t-cha think? …. Don’t-chaaa?

Commonly used to raise one’s spirit, usually a lie told to yourself to make you feel like you are stronger than you actually are.

Is there anything wrong with that? Of course not… We all need to tell ourselves a little white lie once in a while so we feel comfortably satisfied with what has just happened or to help us come to terms with such and such.

But then you can also apply this phrase in a more literal manner. Continue reading

Blog 49 – Logic – Why Bother?

Easy Peasy

Easy Peasy

Logic – “Reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity”

I get amazed at the lack of logic us humans use sometimes.

It’s just plain and simple things that people over-complicate which causes them to have little to no logic in what they do or say.

Why can’t people just think like me…? Then the whole world would be a much simpler place.

For example:

Today is the 4th of November which means it’s almost Bonfire night.

November starts with an “N”, which is the 14th letter of the alphabet. Continue reading

Blog 47 – Haters Gonna Hate

Or as you might say... "Haters gonna hate"

Or as you might say… “Haters gonna hate”

This is a topic that can pretty much be under any category. For example, I could have easily made this into an Interpreted article, a My Thoughts On article, or even added it to the most popular category, Why Bother?

But then I remembered, I had promised that you guys got to dictate what format of article you wanted. Apparently, 50% of you wanted a funny rant. Great.

Fucking great. Humour doesn’t just grow on trees you know.

Anyway, to this week’s topic…

Haters.

The way this term is thrown about over the internet, real life and in general conversation lately has started to bug me so much that I thought I’d write something on it.

How original eh? *Smiles creepily while the lights flicker* Continue reading

Blog 43 – Speaking Normally – Why Bother?

shockwm

What the actual fuck goes on here?

Certain people have this habit. The habit of whispering instead of talking.

Whaaat? Why would you even do such a thing?

As it is, We’re in a noisy environment. These people then decide to go on and actually WHISPER (or near about) as a means of communication.

As if I haven’t had a tiring day and want to just kick back. Now I have to put in all that extra brain-power to solely focus on the bullshit coming outta their collective mouths.

Blog 42 – My Gap Year…

100 follows edit2

Got some good news people… (YES, I can be positive sometimes, okay)

The EssWhyDee Blog has reached 100 Followers on WordPress!!

That, and I have been accepted into University! It’s a great step for me to take… What a gap year it has been so far, I’ve accomplished almost EVERYTHING that I had wanted to do this year and it certainly has been eventful. I’ve been out of the country twice, I’ve had paid jobs on 3 different occasions and have had some great experiences. Continue reading

Blog 36 – Secondary Blog?

Orange Employee Multitasking While Operating Four Laptop Computers At Two Different Desks In An Office

Yesterday night, I made the decision to go ahead and delete Blog 36. I realised that it wasn’t the type of post I usually share and therefore would be robbing my regular readers of an entire article in place of a post full of GIF images… If you don’t know what I’m on about, don’t worry. I deleted soon after publishing so you might not have seen it.

Anyway, this gave me a thought… What if I created a secondary blog… One with a niche. I wonder how that would fare compared to this niche-less beast of a blog (barely). So I started thinking… How about technology? My 3 most viewed articles of all time are regarding technology

But then I had second thoughts…

Blog 17 – My Thoughts on People’s Egos

Oh Hell Naw

A major cause of conflict in this world is down to many factors but the one I’m going to give my thoughts on in this article is; The issue of people’s egos.

It’s not anything new and indeed it may sound cliche…but it’s something we can’t physically visualize and so is often overlooked…

Blog 6 – My Thoughts on ‘My Thoughts’

Brain scanning technology is quickly approachi...

The Human Brain

As confusing as the heading is, i’m sure you’ve gathered by now, that my blog is starting to form a structure. Naturally, i’m trying to post as frequently as possible, blogging my thoughts on topics, blogging my past experiences, general rants, And i’m even releasing an ebook this Friday, as a creative exercise for myself, all alongside fitting in my day to day busy lifestyle…(not)

Now, this structure I mentioned, comes in the form of my new categories.. These are helping me arrange my blog posts into different sections. But a particular category I have thoroughly enjoyed writing in so far, is the ‘My Thoughts on Certain Topics’ category(which you can access from the left hand side of my website, under the Calendar).

So… Here are my thoughts, on ‘My Thoughts’…….

Blog 4 – My Thoughts on Euthanasia

Hospital

Euthanasia

The more serious topic of euthanasia eh?…where do we start….

It’s a touchy topic, but here’s my two pence(or Cents)

Note: i’m trying my best NOT to make this into an essay style article

  • Euthanasia, also called “mercy killing” is the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease or an irreversible coma.

Should individuals have the final say WHEN they die, If they are in extreme cases of suffering? In some countries, it’s actually legal…it’s fair to say that indeed it does ‘put them out of their misery’, because by living longer, they’re only going to be suffering more….

But since humans have free will and all, surely an individual is the best judge of his/her actions and is only justifiable to none other, than themselves. This is an act of putting one in control and giving them the final say. it’s a matter of choice. Their life, Their choice.
