So basically yea, to get to the point, I want to be smart 😦
I know alot of people say this but now I really want to be smart!!!!
Okay so how did this sudden wanting come about? Let me explain.
Recently, we’ve been writing scripts in class and so we’ve met this really awesome dude named Huzir Suliman. He’s apparently super duper famous and prolific in the Singapore arts scene. He’s an established playwright, and he’s extremely extremely intellectual.
Okay. When he speaks, he always seems to choose the right words and the right analogies. And unlike me, who needs to waffle on and on before actually getting to the point, he always makes his statements so clear and concise. The stuff he thinks up on the spot is amazing. Let me give you an example.
“Well, if we were to, lets say, follow a marxist theory that the people who control the means of production get the most out of the common people who are working to keep these means of production running…”
And he said that on the spot, in a moment, in crystal clear english. We were talking about life in general, just so you know. And there’s me with my limited english and displaced thoughts talking about my play and this uber intellectual person talking about Marxist philosophy.
MARXIST PHILOSOPHY IN CONCERN TO TALKING ABOUT LIFE IN GENERAL.
I’m going to read smart books now written by people like Jean Paul Satre and pretend I understand what they mean.
