The Plain Jane

By Saturday, August 11, 2012 , ,

I see people around me,extraordinary people achieving what you can only think of. I read a lot of blogs and its just amazing to see how people are so passionate about what they love. There are people who quit their boring corporate jobs and do what they really love. Its like being on a vacation everyday of your life. There are people who travel to exotic places for a living,who wake up to a different experience everyday.

Me ? I am just a plain jane,ordinary,average- as many teachers called me in school. I was always scared in taking risks. I always liked my life constant without any change ,in other words boring. Actually there are many who called me boring too. I don't drink,smoke or party. I don't like going to night clubs,its just not my scene. I sometimes feel I have a soul of a 90 year old. You know what I like ? I like fine dining,I like my comfy bed,I like long drives when its drizzling outside,I like being around people who actually care about me.

I see people around me who care so much about their looks. I am no fashionista, I can't even wear dresses that are above my knee,they make me uncomfortable. Yes,I like to wear good clothes,I have an eye for them but wearing your best clothes and pouting in front of the camera just so you can post the picture on Facebook is not my thing. I am only 5'2 (Okay who am I kidding I am 5'1, I like to say I am 5'2 because it sounds so much better :/) but I still don't wear heels. I always have a fear of falling when I wear them. Its not just heels, there have been a lot of incidents when I fell in public while wearing flats. And by a lot, I really mean A LOT.

I am not even a great writer. There are so many amazing writers on blog-osphere, I would literally publish them if I owned a publishing house. I started blogging just to document my thoughts because keeping them all inside was killing me slowly. I remember there was this English teacher who said I didn't have that 'zeal' to write. Eh,who needs zeal anyway ;)

But then I am only 20,I want to do a lot of things in the next 10 years. Hopefully, by the time I am 30,my life won't be as boring. May be my writing will improve too and may be the plain jane will finally transform :)




PS : This post has been influenced by the depression brought by never ending rains

  2. ditch the depressing attitude girlie ! In the words of A.Dumbledore "It is our choices, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities"
    so let the rain cleanse away all the depression and negativity and you are as good or even better than anybody in question ! cheers

  3. I don't think writing is judged only on the fact that how much poetic crap you can write. I guess what makes one piece unique are the honest and hard hitting facts said in the simplest of language. So i think you are good. Just my opinion though! :D

  4. Let others decide about how you write. I think all of us feel that we lack something or the other in ourselves. We are all Plain Janes deep down :) Posing for facebook pictures is lame. Be the way you are, and you'll have a long long way to go :)

  5. I think most of us judge ourselves too harshly...be it our writing, or anything else that we do. Don't be too harsh on yourself :)
