Enjoy being where you are.

No you're neither Einstein, Napoleon, Jesus nor Muhammad.

But just enjoy being who you are.

Because if you fail to enjoy being who you are, you'll probably loose all the energy you actually *need* to become who you're actually *meant to be*.

I keep phase-changing between being serious and being silly... and too rapidly at that I think...

Is it okay if I don't follow as many people as I find so that I get followed by as many people as possible?

Because I don't want to follow as many people as I find, nor do I want to be followed by as many people as possible.

I've been traumatized by that game and I don't want to play anymore.

Why is it that Garfield gets to sleep indoors while Odie is never let into the house? [/random question in my head nearing midnight]

me before VoIP meetings 

See when I have to get to the office by 8am, ideally I would need to wake by 4:30am, leave home by 5:30am, in order to just make my two-hour train+bus+walking commute with time to spare to arrive at the office by eight. Lately I've been arriving at the office at 9:30-ish. Bad, I know.

Anyways yeah, that's that.

It's 5:23am and for once I can actually afford to stay in late in bed because we've got an on-site meeting with a client at 10:30 and it just didn't make sense for any of us team members to have to get to the office by 8:00am first.

It's been a decade now. I still am yet to see a technical evaluation accurately level somebody during an interview.

This is considering hundreds of applicants.

Hiring is a tire fire.

I subscribe to the notion that โ€” as a medium through which one potentially receives learning โ€” social media is junk food snack, while real nutrition comes from books, and from actual full-length movies, and so on and so forth.

> do you understand? it was never technology that made humane relations possible. it was you and i, and our commitment to each other.

I do get it, yes and I do agree, and by following the same logic one cannot realistically expect warm human relations to thrive in a cold, uninviting social media environment.

There is no commitment to each other when we are all strangers to reach other, and we're constantly afraid of the consequences of saying the wrong thing.

BJ Habibie was a good man. A great man, even arguably. But let's not make a superman out of him.

Rest in peace, good sir. Rest in peace.

Things we will do:
- Survive

- Walk 500 miles
- Walk 500 more

Things we won't do:
- Get fooled again
- Back down
- That

Things we will never do:

- Run around
- Desert you

(Oops:
- I did it again)

Thinking of how to learn to better deal with upsetting things; of how not to constantly be running away from upsetting things...
