What up? I’m fed up with people being fucking polite. Sounds stupid, dunnit? You come back from your first date, having your expectations lost in dark depths of reality; you find out for a last time, the guy or girl you thought was your friend had been just talking the sweet talk to pass time; your teacher, doing the same, to ...

Art. I wanted to say ‘art’. In all these years, I’ve considered myself to be immature. I assigned immature, very positive connotations: energetic, open to experience, and the like. And maturity had an unwelcoming place in my mind. It often associated with words like dull, unoriginal, conforming. But, I began to look at the two with a different eye. I ...

We all wear our hats, sometimes proudly, sometimes unknowingly. Of course, I’m not talking about real hats that shades the sun or hide hair and scalp. I’m talking about hypothetical hats; yeah, the creepy ones that control our brains. I want to talk about the hats we wear,which, like blood-sucking parasites in the gut, sucks our thinking. Psychologists use a ...

Men and women, alike, are hard to understand. Men are not from Mars and Women are not from Venus. Women and men, surprisingly, come from their mommies womb, out of her vagina. I’m sorry if I spoiled everything for you. I consider myself a feminist. It’s quiet cool being a guy feminist. Yeah, feminism is actually sooo cool(like). For one, ...

The letter I is very similar to the number one (1). One, in society, means a lot of things: “The One”, “Only One”, “Best” and more. 1 for that matter is on the same page as I. I am not the only one to say that we are not souls or a whole bunch of I’s. But we keep coming ...

The ideal partner? I get asked this question a lot, specially this month, having had gone through a wedding marathon. Everyone is getting married; there is a lot of bragging involved with it too. Unconsciously everyone is asking themselves, have we booked an expensive hotel to build up enough envy? The presentation, poruwa and everything has to be picture perfect; ...

This is a very common slogan used by creationists, and sometimes by many other believers. It speculates that theories are as uncertain as hypotheses, so shouldn’t be given any significance. On top of that, many believe that theories are juvenile forms of laws – that addition of data qualifies a theory to become a law. To understand the validity of ...

As a Sri Lankan undergraduate, majoring in psychology, I have a vision for our country in the field. I hope to write a 3-pack article on psychology and certain dilemmas associated with it. The article will answer three questions regarding psychology. So, what are those three golden questions? 1. The Problems 2. Roots/Causes of the Problems 3. How do You ...

Introverts – When one door closes, another should open. The world today is a haven for extroverts.  If you’re outgoing and get energy by dealing with people, you’re almost as sure to be successful in the corporate world. On the other hand, who wants to be an introvert? A shy, neurotic loner – who is rude, selfish and don’t like people. No, introversion doesn’t mean any of those, ...

Mr. Bertie Forgot to Floss Mr. Bertie was a gentle young man. He was a lawyer, in profession. But he had time for his wife and only child, Harry. One Saturday morning, Bertie woke up and walked down to the kitchen as he usually would; pet his cat, and fed his and the cat’s tummies. Then, he noticed something very fishy; as the cat ...

To Be Good or Indifferent I’ve always tried to figure out the position I should take in some awkward situation in life/society. Should I be the goody angel or the apathetic stranger passing by? There’s a philosophical statement I’d like to quote: “If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?“ First, I’d ...

Life isn’t fair I’ve been advocating a fair life where I can be myself, throughout my blog – at least in mild doses. But is life fair? That raises two other questions. What is life? Life – fair? Is life anything? The optimistic answer would be, ‘life is what we make out of it’; pessimists would say, ‘life ain’t fair at all’; realists ...

Framed Here I am, typing on my laptop. I’m wondering what to write: do I write about me and show out my ego-centric side or do I write something out-of-body and serene to escape from the misery. You’re completely aware of what I’m talking, don’t you? Maybe you don’t know anything about misery. But I’m writing this, assuming you do. I’m ...
