The Busybee: AWAY FROM KEYBOARD

I have just gotten back from the start of our final week of TAFE, looking back upon all this, I realized the whole thing of sitting on my arse wasn’t going to improve anything. My bad. Thus, my relationship (or I should say friendship) with J___ came at an end, since I inadvertedly revealed to the poor thing that I’ve made my decision and fell in love with someone else, who was a classmate of mine, by the name of N___, knowing that this could be my chance of living away from my dreaded parents, but without the constant pest of loneliness. Being busy, I also dropped a few events with my friends from the other side of the city, since as the saying goes, I am dead-broke 😦 with two interviews on this week, since my (former) manager H____ said that my college hours clashed with work. Epic fail. But despite all this, I just feel better and betterer! Yes, I am an absolute child sometimes. I’ll fill in the details of M___’s and M___’s 21st party later. Promise.

The Importance of Being Relentless: EASY SEEKINGS, HARD FINDINGS

Good ideas alter the power balance in relationships, that is why good ideas are always initially resisted. Good ideas come with a heavy burden. Which is why so few people have them. So few people can handle it.
