Schlockmeister

Schlockmeister: a person who deals in or sells inferior or worthless goods; junk dealer.

What defines worthless? Inferior. How little can you be worth? How high can you be valued? Price? Price by the free market is simply an agreement between the demand and xsupply. How much do the people want? How much can be produced? What are you willing to give? Are drugs worthless? are incorruptible politicians that important? What else can we pay with, what counts as currency? What can grant clemency, what makes you important enough to demand that I pay with what I use to live? What makes what I did cost me so much, or did it cost me at all? If murder was to finalize my plan and to let me die in peace, isn’t the death sentence simply helping me fulfill my wish? Does it matter that it’s what I want?

Auriferous

Auriferous: Yielding or containing gold.

You, my love. Forget the dull and the grey all around you. Ignore the cries that proclaim you to be trash. You know what you are. Stand up, wake up, FIGHT. Shake off all the thick blue clouds all around and above you and let your gold shine through. Nobody can say for you what you are, and you know very well that you are not what you are making yourself out to be. You and I both. There is much to do. Come, take my hand, it’s a long journey ahead. We’ll walk it together.

Natatorium

Definition: a swimming pool, especially one that is indoors.

I’ve always loved seeing pictures of them. Those beautiful, classy photos depicting the million-dollar interior of mansions whose owners had the money and the creativity (or the money to hire creativity) to integrate a water space into their rooms. It must be so calming, to wake up to the crystalline blue with the sunlight captured in it, filtering through. And the cool surface of the glass when you lean against it and exhale, like the coldness will slowly seep into your skin exchanging places with your body heat, bringing you the calm that you need. Natatorium. An aquarium, but for humans, and inside the most intimate corners of most human habitat.

What’s this?

WotD essentially stands for Word of the Day. So maybe sometimes the daily prompt doesn’t kick anything in my head or I get really bored in class and start looking for something to write. I guess this is kinda a kill two birds with one stone thing. I get to practice writing and widen my vocabulary at the same time. Three or four actually. Then I don’t actually fall asleep in class and I get to pay attention to lessons. Yay.

The words are chosen by Dictionary.com. Basically if I get bored I’m supposed to pull down my notifications tab and note down the word of the day and guess it’s definition. And then, if I’m still bored, I write a hundred words or so on it to stay awake 🙂
