Five Vices: An Internet Meme

March 1, 2008 / Daily Life / 10 Comments

So, looks like the five meme has leaked from YouTube vloggers to the old-school bloggers. Thanks to Teddy, I’ve been tagged. And these are the instructions:

1. List five vices you have, with a description if you want to.
2. Tag five bloggers for this meme.
3. Link back to the blogger who tagged you, and this post if you want to be nice!

  • Hot Tempered
    This has gotta be my greatest vice. Of all my emotions, my temper is the hardest emotion to control. Over the years, I’ve managed to become not so short-tempered anymore. But when some great injustice has occurred around me or towards me, you can be sure to feel the wrath of my anger, which is expressed as a sick and twisted form of calculated psychological warfare. I will break your spirit and tear your mind to shreds. I’ve only been angry like that twice in my life – once when I was 13 (but did not have sophisticated-enough understanding of humans to launch any successful warfare) and a second time a year ago (and yes, I tore his soul down to nothing).
  • Unforgiving
    I believe that the underlying evil or goodness of someone cannot change. If you were born as an immoral inconsiderate bastard, then you will always be an immoral inconsiderate bastard. So if you cross me or my friends once, I will never ever forgive you. I don’t think I will exact any revenge, since I’m a firm believer of karma, but if one day you should ever need my help, you can count on the fact that I won’t be there. Besides, scum bags like that just a waste of the world’s resources; there’s no need to share my resources with someone like that.
  • Vulgar
    You’d think going to university will make someone more cultured. Hell no. When the stress is unbearable, the words will flow out naturally.
  • Impatient
    I’m not exactly the most patient person in the world. I can’t stand it when anything is done inefficiently since I always work in the way that requires the least effort to get the highest success rate.
  • Reckless
    I don’t think this is a current vice, but it was one that I was born with. It took many years to learn to be more cool and composed. But there are times, especially when I’m very angry that the recklessness may surface. But even then, it is somewhat calculated.

Scary, aren’t I? That’s the side of me that most people cannot see, and most likely will never see. I am a fiercely loyal to my friends and family and will always try to protect them. I have an extremely strong sense of justice as well. And sometimes, those righteous emotions lend itself to a much darker side of me. All my vices stem from the fact that I have an extremely overwhelming temper, so I try hard everyday to be less angry. My anger isn’t blind, reckless anger that stems from pride (at least not anymore), it comes from my love for humanity. It will take a while to explain, so I shall leave this for another entry.

I will now pass on this insightful meme to the following people:

I’d like to tag a few more people like Shao, Sigg3 and Iva but five is the maximum, so the rest of you guys can either break protocol and say you’ve been pseudo-tagged or just leave a comment. Sorry!
