Superheroes

“For me, Superman’s greatest contribution has never been the superhero part: it’s the Clark Kent part – the idea that any of us, in all our ordinariness, can change the world.”
— Brad Meltzer

Magic, radioactive waste, genetically enhanced spiders. Shockingly, this isn’t what made them heroes they could have easily used it for evil. It’s how they used it.
Some weren’t even superheroes they didn’t change their DNA or use magic, they simply had a will to do so. Batman created himself, anyone with a few billion pounds and a will could have done it, superman still had to make himself he had his advantages but the rest was up to him.

These heroes may not exist but it doesn’t mean heroes don’t. It’s not the celebrity who you call a hero, it’s the people who have always been there and there is a moment when you realise how great they are. I think people are born with greatness but its up to them if they live up to it. I have heroes, “normal” people are heroes to me, to someone they may be normal but to me they are not.

I think the great thing about superheroes are maybe to a person they are perfect or close to perfect- this idea that it is completely unattainable is amazing, it’s something to aspire to. You can never quite reach it but if you come close, you would have achieved greatness along the way.
Having powers is an advantage what you do to get there is completely up to you.

The thing is if you could be a hero, would you? You have to think about what’s at stake, the sacrifices and the responsibility. I think it’s like anything- you have to work hard.
I think the superpowers would be so cool (you have to be a weirdo not to think this). What power would you choose?

Patience Invisibility is a virtue. I would like to be invisible, I mean people won’t bug you. The people you don’t like wont have to see you. I think people love attention and need to be seen, I don’t need people’s approval. I think right now I’m kind of invisible. Invisibility would probably be a back up.
I would pick time travel. You could get extra sleep, it could save you from saying something stupid (I say a lot of stupid stuff without realising). Homework, no problem. Ultimately, you would make a difference and its useful, you can help people. I would probably have the name “Kairos” which is time in Greek- I know, not very creative.

What power would you pick and what would you like to be called? Be creative!

Misfits?

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

It’s a really weird thing to think about- fitting in. To be honest I don’t think I fit in, if you don’t do what other people do then they don’t except you. Simple. But honestly I couldn’t care less. I guess I’m writing this for the people who feel like crap because of this because honestly a few years ago I felt like a freak because I felt I didn’t fit it. I think I would have loved to read someone writing that it doesn’t matter.

I’m not a loner, I have friends- amazing friends. I’m glad that I don’t fit in with everyone else because then I would have lost myself. My friends accepted me for me and I love them for it. It feels so much better to be loved for yourself rather than what people want you to be.
If I wanted to fit in with the other people then I would have been everything I hate. Seeing the people that others would love to be really makes me wonder- what is so great about them? I guess in school it’s the thrill of being popular that people strive for.

Movies, society and the media make you feel like its everything I fit in but the way it’s portrayed is inaccurate. There are the nerds, the geeks, the sluts, the fakes and the jocks- and that’s it no in between or individuality. Just these labels your stuck with and that’s it.
No. You are your own person and you are so much better then these cliques and labels and don’t ever change. It’s almost like a puzzle, you lose a few pieces and it takes a while to get it but when your finished its a relief. High school is like a big pathetic puzzle.

Even in my family my parents call me the “black sheep” because they are all so much different from me. I’m not like them- they find it weird that I enjoy reading. I honestly don’t mind, I like being me.

I don’t fit in with these people, a lot of people won’t. You can change your hair, your name and reputation but honestly is it worth it?
If you don’t fit in with these people it’s not to say you don’t fit in anywhere. But honestly I don’t get the amazement with fitting in because it just means your like everyone else. I’d rather be my own person and never be sorry or regret it.

I think everyone belongs somewhere and I think you owe it to yourself to find out where. Or maybe you would just find a group of misfits or “freaks”.

Thanks for reading 😀

Books

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”
― Charles William Eliot

I’m a bookworm. I always need a book to read. I’m not the girl who always has her head in a book sitting at the back of class but reading does define people. And it has impacted me hugely.
A few years ago if you asked if I would want to become a writer I would say no-straight away. But now it’s what I would love to do but I don’t think I can do it as a career. To be honest I have no idea what career I would love to do. It’s a passion but you guys obviously know that it isn’t easy to break into.

Yes, I’m a nerd I always have a book on me. I love reading any type of book, except vampires and werewolves. I grew out of that ages ago.
Now I prefer to read the books with people with real problems. They’re described as depressing and my friends often call me “emo” or “goth” (it doesn’t help that I have dark hair and light skin). I think people don’t understand “real life”, my friend says that she doesn’t read these books because they are too sad and she reads to get away from problems. People are really oblivious to things happening around them.

“Only bad books have good endings.
If a book is any good, it’s ending is always bad – because you don’t want the book to end.” I agree with this quote because there has to be a purpose there would be no point of anything of things stayed the same. It’s the same in life, learning from mistakes and changing or adapting.

Thank you for reading.
