Playing Slender has never felt so good. I’m alone right now, and I just finished a game of Slender (Mansion). I lost, of course. Stupid corners. It’s a surprise to me that I can actually play this game without having any major freak outs. In reality, I am intensely afraid of the dark, and easily get rattled by the sounds I hear at night. Solution? Slender man. Now I’m not as scared of the dark as before. It’s just that…. Well, it’s more like my main fear shifted from the actual darkness to the possibility of seeing a slender figure lurking in that darkness. It may sound like the same thing, but it’s not. Being scared of Slender man is worse. Being with friends doesn’t make it any better. The feeling of knowing there’s a possibility of being attacked in a group gives me a deep sense of unease. I’m not ashamed though. There are manlier men out there who are indeed afraid of Slendy as I am. It’s no surprise. I have no idea what it is about him that gets to me. It’s like he just has the innate ability to creep people out. It gives me the shivers. I am especially paranoid when I’m walking home from school and it gets dark. There’s this one road that I have to pass before getting home. That road is long and is only lit by three lamp posts placed ridiculously far apart as if to instill fear into people who walk at night. Then there’s the truck. I hate that truck. It’s been there for at least half a year already, and to make things worse, it reminds me of the truck from the original Slender game. Not cool, bro. Not cool. With all this talk of Slender man, I’m not even sure if I’ll be able to sleep straight away. Well, I’ll find out in an hour or two….
I really don’t like littering. I’ve been walking around town more often, and I usually see a few dump trucks rolling down the streets doing what they do best. Seeing the hardworking men collect our garbage and zoom off to dispose of it at the local dump site, I started to think how inconsiderate and selfish litterbugs are. Not only are you disposing of your trash in a manner convenient for you, but you’re also making a pain in the back for the people who keep the streets clean. How hard is it really to stuff your trash in your pocket, or at least walk around to find a garbage bin? Disgusting. I’ve had enough of mountains of garbage already. If you’re going to make the place look like a trash can got kicked around, then please, do it somewhere desolate where there are no signs of intelligent life. I’ve hated littering for as long as I can remember, and it really ticks me off to see someone do it. And to think that we’re supposed to be preserving the planet for future generations. Disgraceful. Anyway, if litterers don’t change their ways, then our trash problems won’t end. There will always be that single used tissue ball rolling like tumbleweed on the streets of Baguio city. In fact, I observe that a lot of people aren’t exactly good at handling situations involving trash. It always gets messy. Well, I think I’ll leave it at that. Just remember that the next time you litter, someone will be watching you.
