What exactly is
random? I've seen on some profiles that some people believe that
they are random. What exactly do they mean? According to
the Merriam-Webster's online dictionary, the word random means
"a haphazard course; without
definite aim, direction, rule, or method". Does this mean that
the person has no definite course or direction for their lives?
Does this mean that their stories, poetry, or whatever has no
definite aim? If you look further into the word random, you will
find that it has absolutely no pattern or regularity. Sorry, but
human nature has patterns in it. No, I don't think we're all OCD
or anything, but we do have patterns in our daily lives. Another
word for random can be "unpredictable". But, is this exactly
true? I mean, sure my mood swings are unpredictable; but I can
predict that around a certain time of the month that they're
going to be out of whack. And, again, I go back to human nature.
Trust me. We're predictable.
