The Ink Drinker Series

There are four installments of the Ink Drinker series, which are about Odilon, Carmilla and Draculink - vampires who thirst not for blood, but for ink off the pages of books. They slurp up the ink through their ink-drinking straws and face adventure and drama at every turn. The Ink Drinker books are super-quick reads, each averaging about 50 pages. The latest book in the series is Little Red Ink Drinker and finds Odilon and Carmilla in quite the predicament. A strange turn of events leads the two to be sucked into the book they are drinking and they have no idea how to get out! The Ink Drinker books are perfect reads to get you into the Halloween vibe.

It is much obvious that in this society nowadays smart people have the most advantages of being successful and socially acccepted based on their careers, position, personal success, fame, power and all that upper middle class stuff. But at the same time while being 'smart', they are also facing all kinds of stress and struggles such as trying the best at showing the perfect them to the society, mantaining all the success, fame and power all the time while the list goes on and on. But happy people on the other hand, or in other words, are happy because they live in the moment. They don't care , or don't need to care what others think of them because they are not living under the eyes and sayings of other people. They enjoy being themselves in their way. Although nothing is perfect, but they tend to make the best out of the many things. And they don't get easiy tired of trying to become the best of the bests, as most smart people tend to do. So if i would choose, i would rather be happy than smart. Well, then the 'smart' people you've spoken about are not really all that smart after all,  are they? Cuz if they were really all that smart they would've realised that they shouldn't care about what others think about them. Am I right? Great point ! Thanks for the reminder ! But smart people as i mentioned above ,they still have to face all kinds of turbulence, stress, and difficulties in life. They may be able to go through them with their intelligence, but there are still things such as depression as results to the circumstances they have to face that might be inevitable to them. Happy people on the other hand, even though there will still be difficult times, but they are still happy anyway. It is already a certainty to them , it is literally the way of living their lives ! What could be better than that? Hmm yes. But the way I perceive a smart person to be, the person has the smartness to deal with all the problems in life and knows how to react, what to accept and what to forget and ignore from the inevitable situations and circumstances. So, being smart automatically makes you happy, or something very close to happy which I feel is good enough. :)
