About Me

!nversed Poignancy!

...I am an eclectic amalgamation of many seemingly paradoxical things. This can be exemplified in both my seemingly endless persistance on many topics and arguments, as well as my careful cautiousness on other topics and arguments. This is largely due to how astute I am of the topic: more knowledge, more persistant; less knowledge, obviously more cautious. I also have times of obsessive compulsions regarding certain things (mostly just my thoughts, however)...

Life and Death

!nversed Poignancy!

Life

An assembly

Possibly impossible

Perfectly interchangeable..

Death

That lives most upright

Beyond the unspoken

Neither a squiggle nor a quibble..

She and Me

!nversed Poignancy!

She

A daffodil

Tyrannizer of me

Breaking the colors of dusk!..

Me

The rising sun

Infringed with violations

The impurity in the salt..

Love and Poetry!

!nversed Poignancy!

Love

A puerile desire

Buried in the heart

Never leaves..

Poetry

Sentimentally melodramatic

Cursively recursive

My thoughts idiotic!

I before E..?

Scribbled by Bharath C On December 10, 2005


This has to be another one of the all-time favourite errors people make.

I learnt from a very young age to say the rhyme, "I before E, except after C!", and you know what? I still use it today when I'm writing! That's right - it has stuck with me through quite a few decades, and has been a great tool for me over the years.

Examples:

My sister's daughter is my niece.

Psst! Remember how to spell niece by saying, "Nice niece!" ... which means write the *i* in *nice* before the *e*.

Remember this phrase:

I before e except after c
Or sounding like A
As in NEIGHBOUR and WEIGH
But LEISURE and SEIZE
Do as they please.


i before e

e before i
