What is this?

it hits me.
like a ton of bricks,
but without the bricks.
had there been bricks
i’d have surely be killed.
confusion seizes everything,
what is this?

What am I tweeting?

I’m confused at the purpose of Twitter. I was recommended by several classmates that Twitter is a great connector for jobs or awareness, etc, but I just don’t get it’s purpose. If I’ve already got a lackluster blog, which I’m content with, but what’s the point of Twitter? I don’t feel the need to repeat myself on multiple spaces. I don’t have to spread my shit around. I suppose I’ll eventually see Twitter’s services value, but until then, I’m not sure what to expect. I thought the blogsphere was enough, but I seem to be living behind the trend. I disabled my Facebook because I didn’t use it like how others were using it. In conclusion, I’m guess this is a rant of no valid reason. There obviously was a need for the creation of Twitter, and it seems to have a large following, so what am I complaining about? I guess I’ll just have to start tweeting to find out.

Flickered vision

Imagine that your vision flickered, like that of a light switch. On. Off. It was a normal day at work when it happened to me. I finished after pushing a cart full of stock to when it needed to go. As I walked to the back of the store, I passed a pretty girl. That’s when it happened. Flash. Whoa, what the hell. I was momentarily stunned, somewhat stutter stepping as I went. Could it be, her gravitational pull disrupted my my magnetic force? Or had it just been a nervous convulsion at the sight of by such a beautiful creature? Or maybe it was just the fluorescent lighting that caused my eyes to scramble? Whatever the reason may be, I continued my day as per usual. I don’t get paid to ask questions.

How common is your sense?

This confusion has been stalking my mind since my growing understanding, although very minimally, of the language and idioms I’ve learned. I’ve always taken it as a general rule that we apply it to situations where people should have “known better.” What gets me is that it’s a sweeping generalization that we all share in this common knowledge. When I hear the words common and sense in the same sentence, my reaction, although said aloud in my head, is “not all sense is common.” It’s like being expected to know that which you don’t. My point, however, is what makes sense or sensibility common, as majority should know, and who determines it? I, from the standpoint of young student and with little life experience, am confused by what I should already know to be “common sense.” When I’m told that I should have used my “common sense” I feel somewhat puzzled. I’m posting this as a general inquiry on the subject. For those who wish to share their thoughts or would like to constructively correct me on the topic, I greatly encourage replies.
