So I saw this article about the Nation Writing a Novel Month in November.
This gave me a nice motivation to start to write more. Since I’ve been writing a wide variety of things lately. (Play writing, letters, proposals, etc…)
And here is the sample post that I copied and paste which describes my feelings on blogging right now.
I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011. I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can. If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
As my first post, I’ll rant about what I think about bus drivers. Bus drivers are awesome, both in real life and in games. So in Starcraft 2, there is this game called Mafia. For those of you who never heard about Mafia, it’s basically a game of keeping your poker face and figure out who’s the bad guy. Anyways, I don’t want to go into detail about the game here, because this is not about Mafia, this is about bus drivers.
Bus driver is not a normal role in a normal game of Mafia with just cards. People can certainly add him to the game, but in most games of Mafia, people will use these roles: Mafia, PoPo, and Doc. In the Starcraft mod, there’s a bunch of more mods because of the almost unlimited possibilities of the game, and people cannot see each other, so they will have to guess who is who by using their skills given their role. One of those roles is the legendary bus driver. The bus driver can run over people and swap people from the intended target. So if mafia wanted to kill me, but the bus driver swap me with someone else, that someone else would die instead. And if the bus driver knows who mafia is, he can run him over. Gotta love the bus driver.
Now to talk about a bus driver in real life. In UC Santa Cruz, if you are a student here, you’ve probably heard about the legendary EPIC BUS. It’s the bus where the bus driver plays EPIC songs. It just makes my day whenever I go into the EPIC BUS ’cause it makes my life so much more EPIC, or at least it makes me feel my life is more EPIC. Having EPIC music going to class really makes going to class more fun. Later, however, what you do in the class is dependent on the professor and on you… lol
Now something to think about….
Bus Drivers drive people all day. Depending on what route of bus is being driven, the people reach their destinations. It can be a Tour Bus, a City Bus, a Magic School Bus, in the end, buses help people reach their destinations. The difference between a bus and a car, instead of going to the destination yourself, you are going into a complete stranger’s vehicle. Why do people trust bus drivers? Is it because the bus is pretty? Is it because the bus driver is in a uniform (for city buses)? If you really think about it, isn’t going on a bus almost as scary as hitchhiking? It’s just a different vehicle with a planned route. What if the bus driver suddenly fails to take the planned route? What if the bus driver is suicidal and want to kill everyone on the bus? What if a bomb is in the bus? What if the bus has some mechanical failure and blows up?
But yet people still do trust bus drivers. Bus drivers hold a lot of responsibility on their passenger’s lives and well being. This is why bus drivers are awesome. Driving a bus it may seem like an easy job to anyone who has a driver’s license. “I can drive a car, I can drive a bus right?” Driving a bus takes much more responsibility than driving a car. Bus drivers are constantly under lots of pressure to get passengers to point A and point B. So next time you can, show some appreciation to your bus drivers. I’m pretty sure they’ll be happy about it. It would give them more job satisfaction and make them drive happier.
I’ll rant more about buses some time again.
One of my favorite bus quotes
but it’s true aint it?
