Bizarro World Roshan

In the DC comics universe, a planet called “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards) is populated with bizarre versions of superheroes. A Seinfeld episode made the idea of this Bizarro World popular, where the characters encountered their opposite selves.

Craft a scene in which you meet an opposite version of yourself — or a story in a bizarre, backwards world.

Wow, Bizarro World version of me. What would my opposite self be like? Well, everything that I want to be. Ok, I’m going to give you guys my dream version of me, one I wish I was so here goes.

Bizzarro world Roshan is taller (can it be?) & slimmer. He also did well in college and went on to get a job with a big IT company that placed him in Canada. Choose the city (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Halifax etc etc). There he settled down making a good living, occasionally visiting his folks back home in India. By age 26 he met a sweet, kind hearted, hot blonde who became his best friend, lover and, by the time they both turned 30, his wife. They both live in a nice big bungalow style house in their city (Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Halifax etc etc). They live very happily, devoted to each other, raise 2 dogs and 2 cats (yes the complete family) and spend their free time watching movies & tv shows, cooking great meals together, enjoying each other’s company and fucking each other’s brains out on a regular basis! Oh and they enjoy going on holidays.

There. That’s what I would think bizzaro world’s version of me is doing!

Conflict Resolution

You’re in the middle of a terrible argument, and everyone turns to you to help resolve it. How do you respond? How do you react to conflict?

I’m not the most level headed guy in the world. Infact, I’m fueled by passion and sometimes I let my emotions get the better of me and lash out if I feel that I or others are in the wrong. Especially by people I can’t stand and/or are abusing their authority. That’s me in a nutshell, I do not always have a big control over my feelings. I am an emotional person. However I have proved to some people and to myself, much to even my surprise, that I can be a good choice for someone who can cool things down as well.

Not all the time mind you. But a few times here and there I can be called up to be the mediator, the referee, the “cool-down-guys” person! A few people have even asked me or looked to me to intervene and cool things down from time to time. So if asked and I felt that I could prove useful I would try and cool things down. Get people to think first before they speak. Change the topic of introduce something else that the opposing factions both agree on and change the mood. When cool heads have prevailed, then maybe we can get back to the matter at hand and see if we can resolve things without bloodshed.

If only that happened all the time.
