Well, just grant it to me, for that my power to express concepts or to throw fundas is not so good. But still I am going to take a try at this one, hope you'll understand it a bit, if not then I don't have any excuses to make as such.
So, we all have been through nice & not so nice phases of life where we have had to make clarifications, make our way out, excuse,escape the circumstance, switch the motion, justify etc etc...but the bottom line is that we happen to have this notion in mind that we need to get out of this, such situations are called 'situations of questionable actions'. That is, the course of action is odd or the outcome is an undesirable one. A bigger issue is that our actions are often questioned or criticized by others or even by ourselves and we are asked to explain and defend them.
Likewise, I too have been into such situations, at times I could escape before hand, vindicated at times, vexed and got merged/hanged/stuck/caught too. But everytime one thing was common, that I tried giving the bestest of all justifications - and here is the catch of the post.. why would a guy like me, who likes to take the easy way out, would make a justification and not an excuse. So, what exactly is the difference between a justification and an excuse.
Justification - this is an explanation for a situation of questionable action to lessen or nullify or submerge the negativity associated to it and have the things turned back to a normal state.
Excuse - this is just the same, but the intention of this is to 'get-rid-of'-the-responsibility' levied on you for that the situation of questionable action got witnessed or came into being.
So, the very next time to plan to give a clarification, have it decided in your mind what you are upto, you are going to make an excuse or a justification (though you would consider it as a Justification by default, but my dear, whether its an excuse or a justification - it all lies with the listener, coz in-the-end s/he is the one to perceive and comprehend your statements).
A small suggestion here, when you plan to make 'an-excuse', keep yourself prepared with a bundle of more excuses to support this wild-excuse-card (which you'll be playing *assuming* the best card in your pile to tackle the situation and assumptions can be very-dangerous).
I am not an artist, neither drawing or painting are my hobbies, but I try to draw as and when I get bored of the routine things. This also made me realize how unstable and restless my mind is, damn! And like always, I like trying to do things systematically, I had kept the theme as 'retro' for the month of April. So, following are what I could do in the boring portions of April, weekends to be specific. Let's see, what May brings in.
Well, there were some cans left over, post my first weekend project, which I did with cans. [you can find it down in my blog: Night Lamp].
It has been a month ever since I shifted into my new apartment, so I happen to gift myself a Room Mate . Yeah! he happens to be a great one, doesn't asks for money, time, love, needs no rest, takes no leaves and has no in-laws! LMFAO!!
So, I did some on-the-fly rough-planning, used basic home material and took some time, That's All! And to be specific, just a Can and a pair of Scissors, rest all is sheet folding. And yes, its in 3D, its a full-fledged dinosaurs face, though it might look like a Cano-Bot to you.
Also, this bloody-chipmunk [though he's a T-Rex] takes care of my Honey! But, he is always making faces and acts as if he's gonna eat her away. Anyway. I have planned that I'll take Honey to office on this Monday.
Bottom Line, I have got an awesome room-mate and I have more reasons to look n stay happy! Youuuhhuuuu..lucky me ;D
