E. Hemingway

If you know me, I mean if you really know me, you’ll know that I spend a lot of time in front of mirrors. That isn’t because I’m getting ready or checking my outfit or anything important, I just stare at myself. I’m going to be honest, I think I’m pretty nice to look at…usually. So, naturally, I’m going to want to look at my reflection because I find myself attractive and I like to think it builds my character, but thats just me.
Anyway, I’ve been thinking of what my psychology teacher had mentioned about suicide some time ago. He said that women are less likely to inflict harm to their appearance because they want to look good in their coffins, whereas men are more willing to blow their heads off because they just want to get their lives over with.
Well, if you really know me, you would know that I take great care of my face. So if I were to ever commit suicide, I decided that I would go out like Hemingway: I would blow my skull off. If I were to end my life so tragically, then everyone would know that I wasn’t looking for an easy way out; They’d know that I had enough audacity to have taken a gun to my own head and to pull the trigger at my own will. Everyone would know that something awful had to have happened in my uneventful life for me to ruin the one quality that gave me the confidence to feel good about myself. I would hope that when they would see me in Hell, they wouldn’t recognize me for I’d only have half a brain.


  1. Very interesting remark what your psychology teacher said. I'm hesitant to say that it was funny because I don't know if it's a joke or not and would therefore feel it might be inappropriate if I chortled.

    If I were ever to commit suicide, the most important thing would be that I would write a really long, tragic, poetic suicide note because that's just me. I'm all about sentiment and care far too much about peoples' impression of me, even if I'm dead. I would probably also mimic a method of suicide used by some famous poet or novelist, not because it's important to me but because it's about the image.

    I'm starting to depress myself. It's actually very difficult for one to learn that he is a prick.

    Maybe a poison apple? Just one bite, though. Anything else would be just tacky.

  2. He was being serious, but he said it in a way where it was okay to laugh. But I do agree, it is interesting.

    Definitely, if you're going to commit suicide you need to leave something to be remembered for...but then again you do have your blog, which is a good thing to be remembered for.

    I like the poison apple idea because it's classy.

    I wasn't being serious when I said I'd blow my head off, I only said that to prove a point.
