So Bergen is too occupied with whispering his missus sweet nothings every now and then. Zubaidah Arshad chooses only selected people to listen to what she really crazes about Liam. Dr Sam is probably so high with scientific jargon that he no longer wants to write anymore. I simply say that I have stopped reading, bought myself a brand new car which has deteriorated my original saving plan, go to work in the morning and come back home late in the evening feeling run down, swallow some pills, watch movie, reply Facebook comments, go to sleep and the cycle continues.
The Company sent me to advanced writing class weeks ago. The teacher, who looked like a bespectacled Marina Mahathir taught me to write down simple sentences which contradicted to the purpose of the class which was making things 'advanced' as I presumed. So we can no longer write 'as per your request'. Instead, 'as requested' is more preferable in a sense of 'making things simple'. Another classic example is 'aforementioned' which the Marina Mahathir said it could be better if it is 'previous'. I find these very discouraging to me because simple sentences make me look less intelligent. I don't say 'a dog'. I say 'a nondescript dog' to say that I know it is a dog but I do not know which breed it belongs to or in certain occasions I am really convinced that it is a Cocker Spaniel but I want to show how well-read I am by placing a bombastic sounding adjective 'nondescript' right before the subject, well... to impress people. With intricately structured composition, that makes me look class. But I have yet to understand grammars. I am not sure which one is correct – “can easily be” or “can be easily”? I also got fed up with the timeline complexity of “has”, “have” and “had”. How about the double have have or had had or have had? The Marina Mahathir also taught me how to use “either... or...” and “neither... nor...” properly. Never did I aware that the nature of the verb should follow the latter subject mentioned, whether it is plural or singular. Well I think I don’t think I want to get serious with grammars because I’m Sir Pok Deng. Nobody cares about my grammar. Except Ninotaziz.
I thought the class will motivate me to write more beautiful stories but I think I am running out of literature wit. Maybe I am too busy taking care of big stuff of my scientific world while neglecting small matters which are... errr... I’m running out of vocabaluray... okay “beautiful”. Matters which are beautiful.
