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.
