LAW 6: The Art of Flirting

LAW 6 :
 The Art of Flirting. How hard could it be>>?
When without knowledge or experience, let the animal part of you take over. End.

Hypothetically, and perhaps theoretically speaking, there must be some kind of rules in the art of flirting--just as there are thousands of unspoken rules about other more irritatingly mundane things. Realistically speaking though, advices in the art of flirting most likely should not come from a person who's had so little-to-none of such activity... well, one such as yours truly. But really, apart from the tangible, material and physical aspect of it, how hard could it be or how difficult could it be to try to attempt it? Take aside the outside skin, the artificial perfumes and other worldly things; I believe there are just some things that are ingrained in every cell of our existence, some things that were already existent in our human drives. We aren't wholly clean slates to begin with, the conscious part like attitudes and behaviors,- they may be influenced and directed and only filled up by human experience--but instincts, they were given birth the same time we mortals first breathed air. Instincts are there in our slates, perhaps hidden, perhaps ignored, perhaps have been behaving like the infant it was but surely growing, maturing and awakening with time, dependent on our needs as humans, as some higher form of animals. That is why in the art of flirting, I believe that no one is truly innocent of the knowledge on it. At the very least, a primal drive exists. An instinct, at the back of everyone's mind, that could turn savage anytime.

To someone whose never had experience in practicing the art, succumbing to the drive can be the only reasonable option. In short, be the animal that you are. Close off the rational thoughts that attempt to follow logic and norms and be the blind who lets something more raw and powerful take control. When to bat eyelashes, when to render a fleeting smile, when to tease with a ghost of a touch or when to put a solid caress,---such things you don't really learn from watching or from other people telling- and such things you especially can't execute efficiently by logic alone... (probably). Though these are all just theories, we're basically still animals..., there's some animals in us. It's the scent. Flirting is useless when the target can't even understand that you're flirting with him/her. Targets have to feel. Flirting is never an innocent act after all although it can be guised as one. Flirting is a purposeful act, so full of intent and scheming---though the scheming part consists only of a goal, that is, the end--the getting the target's attention or affection. Step by step actions don't have to be plotted or agonized over when you can let loose the animal anytime. They'd scent it--your intention, your desire. The subtle things suddenly become noticeable because you desired it, wanted it to happen... When the targets scents you, every little thing you do becomes magnified. A shy smile from you would seem coy and teasing, your normal gait would seem accompanied by a sweet sinful sway, your voice he or she would hear with a purr... In a way, it's like a mating process. Flirting is.. 

...I think so,

LAW 5: The Broken Blade

A blade that's broken shall still forever remain as what it is: a blade.

Even in its confines, in its degraded state, its steel will continuously and stubbornly refuse to get dull. And in silence or the sound of turmoil, it shall tremble in excitement to once again strike at a fellow blade or pierce through a man's flesh. You can use it in may other ways, being broken and altered, but what it really is, you can never erase. The blade can't help being what it's made for in the first place. Different people may wield it for different reasons but the blade, however weakened and broken it may be will opt to choose what it'd painstakingly longed for. And trust me, it will make known to the world when, what and if it'd finally chosen another wielder,. And it will surprise you with its own vigor after the long time it has been suppressed.

There will always come a time when you will realize what you're made of and for. There's no definite date and time, no definite landmark. It shall be completely unbeknownst. You're like an empty gauge that's being filled with skills, experience, wisdom and a little bit of everything else. You never really get to know which factors are slowly but surely making up your whole being. But you can bet your ass that without a doubt there will come a time you'll realize that the gauge been filled up. And there's one thing that's taking the large part of what you are. And trust me, this you can never change. It'd seeped through slowly and thoroughly to your core, the relationship deeper that whatever you can dare to imagine. And may the years come upon you, this one thing that makes you who you are shall also age alongside, attached bloodily to your heart.

When the job you so wanted for a very
long time comes knocking on your door,
and when you know you'd be there with just
one more leap, you'll suddenly get afraid of heights.
No matter which new job you get, it's always
terrifying to quit from the old one 
'coz from the latter you already felt safe and comfy,
no matter how unhappy you were with the work.
Why must we feel so contradicting when we ought to be celebrating?

Sitting the day to the next one--and probably to the next hundred days, chewing lips how you wished you had another job, cursing fervently how you're being unhappy, you must be really frustrated. I did. And now the job I'd been wishing, hoping and praying for calls me to quit the old one, to process some few more papers then start with them in a week's time. I'm feeling risky and scared that when I quit my old job some inevitable accidents might occur and just leave me completely jobless, losing both at the same time. Why be such a pussy.? Then I realized, the thing is, the same process and sequence of events will happen. The only difference for me is that things are taking place a bit sooner. They are happening now. I got my dream job a bit earlier. Even if I'll get it a year or a couple of years from now, same changes would still take place. So I just gotta take a deep breath and take the blasted jump and be done with it. We have to take the risk ourselves and keep our fingers crossed we'll land to that safe place.
