someone burn her thesaurus.

i am a blogger. which means, i am also a reader. i read hella blogs about hella shit in hella styles. personally, when i write, i write like i’m talking to my best friend. i know that’s not everyone’s style and i respect that. writing is an art and well.. “i’m an artist, and i’m sensitive about my shit”.

however, once in a while i will come across a blog where the author uses introspective, profound, 10 letter words, and her sentences are three lines long and theres semicolons and shit.. and thats FINE. but sometimes.. just sometimes.. it gets kinda irritating. like i have to read the sentence over again to understand it when it coulda just took 3 words and been straight to the point.
i was conversing (p.s. i loathe the word “conversate”) with my hayati Abi about it this morning

–“yes and almost all of the time it would sound and flow so much better if she
just said ‘it was awesome,’ or ‘it was amazing’ instead of ‘my head spills into
an infinity of ultimate horizons beckoning my ear to pitter patter amongst the
enlightening universe’… SHUT THE FUCK UP BITCH it was dope. nuff
said!”

do u like your truth to be raw and real, or eloquently construed? i like it both ways, but sometimes its just doin too much [hereafter referred to as DTM]. are we the only one who feels like this? tell me blog readers!

    “my head spills into
    an infinity of ultimate horizons beckoning my ear to pitter patter amongst the enlightening universe”

    Rach, help! I really don’t know what that means! Is that poetry? Is it a novel? I don’t know….I’m confused. You’re right…burn that damn thesaurus!
