Let’s watch the city burn.

The meme that symbolizes my current feeling is “Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn”.

Check it out: Know Your Meme

I am currently suffering from post-vacation blues. That is to say, I still barely have any motivation to study even though, within half a day, I just managed to finish a six-page paper which used to take me two days. It feels strange that I am quite anxious while I am really not that much anxious at the same time.

I choose the specific photo of Tinky Winky because of his emotionless eyes and the mysterious smile on his face. It appears to be totally peaceful, whereas, with the ironic caption, a sense of fierce emotions is implied, which I feel completely connectable. To be specific, the contrast between the inner world and appearance of an individual is relatable. The only slight difference is that, in my case, it would be watching myself burn.

One surprising fact I found about this particular meme through Know Your Meme is that the original phrase comes from the July 2008 Batman film The Dark Knight. I had watched The Dark Knight Trilogy in recent few years a couple of times, nonetheless, I fail to remember the script. While this specific script is serious in the context of the film, there is an additional sense of humor in image macros.
