Drawing of my dog. He thinks he’s a model.
The picture is unrelated, but I didn’t want to leave you guys without a picture.
So you know I love you guys, right? “Hello Everyone,” “Improbablility of Seriousness,” and “Penguins and Unhappiness” were all just gag posts. I can’t give up on art for that sort of thing.
I decided to make this post as straight forward as I can, guys. This is very awkward for me, because I honestly didn’t expect that my posts would get the attention they did. It actually makes me feel bad, considering that my hastily written pseudo intellectual posts actually seemed to make sense to a lot of people, which I guess is pretty cool. On the other hand, revealing that this was all part of an April Fools Day prank makes me feel sorry for all of my new followers who joined in for the opinionated posts about things. I’m sorry guys, but that’s not really my thing. Unless I state otherwise, this blog will be used for art and art alone!
But since you guys liked my serious post so much, let me tell you how I really feel about the issue.
We are a little too preoccupied with being serious all the time, and it would be nice to just let loose and get your goof on every once in a while. We spend way too much time being big, respectable, serious people all the time that we almost forget what it’s like to have fun. I mean, let’s be honest, whenever we do something fun after weeks and months of doing boring, important things, we look drained. We come out of our little boxes of stressed out seriousness and start looking around like some little dog that hasn’t been on a walk in ages. “What’s that? Is that a tree?! Is that junk food?! Are those those fun paddle ball toys that I haven’t seen since I was ten? Is this what I’ve been missing?!” Then afterwards you let loose but you’re so awkward and confused because you haven’t done anything fun in forever. You barely know how to have fun anymore. It’s cool, though. You can still learn. It takes practice, but you can get it.
On the other hand, life isn’t all fun and games, and that’s the sad truth. Some times you have to get serious. When things need to be done you have to man up and take control, because you know full well that you’re the only one who can do that job the way you can. You depend on you, and others depend on you, so it’s cool to switch to serious mode when things happen. Have respect for others having a moment of focus and concentration, and if they politely ask you to tone down the craziness for a moment, it’s okay. The same way you want them to respect your nutty, unconventional personality you respect their serious, straightforward attitude. It’s only fair, right? Do onto others, you know?
In the end you really need a balance of silly and serious to survive this life. If you’re always serious you’ll never get any real enjoyment out of life. Things will pass you by, you’ll never see the beauty in anything, and you’ll always be too busy killing moments to realize that the world is an awesome place of wonder and awe. If you’re too silly, then nothing will have any real importance to you. Any serious moment, from a wedding, to a funeral or even a birthday will loose meaning because you’re too busy making a joke out of everything to realize how important they are. Things become less valuable and precious, and before you know it you’ll be trading watching your kid take her first steps for some silly beach party with a bunch of random whoevers that you just met. In short, silliness rocks! It’s awesome and we should all try it some time/ Seriousness isn’t without it’s merits either. It’s that calming force that somehow manages to make you realize that you are a leader and a winner, and that you have to focus on things. When you combine the too, and do something silly but take it as serious as you would any happy event, everything just seems to fall into place and just feel special.
…Yyyyyeeeeeah I still can’t do this philosophical thing. Happy April Fools Day and don’t expect anything else like this for a long, long time.
Good night, my friends.
PS: Still a little upset about fake philosophical me getting all the attention. Jerrica I now know how you feel about Jem.
