Happy little working song!
It’s pretty amazing how quickly people can bounce back from depressing lows. So, this morning, I was pretty upset, having recently lost a competition on which I spent the entire time-valuable weekend, missed three hours of work time by oversleeping, having missed out on 1% (I know it’s an incredibly small number, but this isn’t the first time I’ve made the mistake) from a...
Son of a bitch. I hate this. I can slowly feel myself turning into this horrible shrew with every failure I manage to draw up. I wish I had a more constructive outlet than quietly fuming.
Information is Power
… Yep. That’s pretty much all. I want to know things I have no business knowing, and on some level, that’s rather thrilling. Then again, ignorance is bliss? I don’t know. I’m getting better at controlling myself. Work helps.
Control and Satisfaction
I wrote earlier that I envied the empowerment some Christians I knew received from their faith in God. Earlier today, a friend told me, “I trust God, he’s has control over my life” That irritates me. Where does this control end, and at what point does it become you own fucking responsibility? Shifting blame when something goes wrong feels good, I know, but… Your failings...
Things could still be worse. Things could still be worse. Things could still be worse. It’s a mantra I found myself chanting as I am surrounded by crowds of friends, their smiles dazzling my mind. It’s like it’s been covered by a layer of thick, viscous, muddy slime. I need to do something more worthwhile with the rest of my life. I should start right now. Unnecessary junk...
E(r) is rarely equal to real returns in finance, but sometimes, even though it’s believed that people are more unpredictable, I find myself finding my calculations and projections to be true, time and again. This might be a reflection of the people involved, or maybe, it’s about how they want a particular result. They’ve sworn it’d be different each time. There’s...

I don’t know where to begin. I guess, a good place to start is to just tell you flat out, that I’m quite envious of those who believe in a higher power. It’s not easy to explain. Personally, though I am yet unable to just… let go of the control I hold over my life, when I see these inspiring, hopeful, grateful, … emotional messages… It’s difficult to...
I have been quite busy over the last two weeks, setting up a pilot program launching in the next week, organising an event being held tomorrow, desperately seeking vacation work… It’s been hard to find time just for me. I think I enjoy the pressure of having so many things bearing down on me. It’s challenging, but when have I ever shied away from a (manageable) challenge? But...
This tumblr was created far too long ago. To be honest, I had completely forgotten I had one until recently, when a friend found it, and reminded me of this poor, dusty, neglected site. I do have a new tumblr account now, and was fully intending on shutting this account down when I went on my account email and password scavenge half a hour ago, but now that I am in, I somehow find that I cannot. ...
