You know Chat Roulette? The place where you can video chat with people or penises? Well, Brazen Careerist just launched it’s own roulette, without the penises. Networking Roulette is a 3 minute chat session with people all over the hot social network, Brazen Careerist. There is no video so you have to hold your own with your words or your chat partner might “next” you. Read the rest of this entry »
I had to order checks this week. I realized I only had 4 checks left and I wasn’t going to make it through until my personal move out date of mid-April.
Ordering checks made me think about how quickly money leaves my hands and how that can’t be the case for much longer. I enjoy buying little things for people to brighten up their day. I bought cupcakes for my coworkers on Friday because we all had a pretty crappy month last month. I buy fun things for my boyfriend like his favorite gum or NC State stuff to make him smile. (I’m guessing this isn’t working btw since we are ending our relationship.)
Well I’m over it. I realize that I’m buying things to make ME feel better, not them. I wanted cupcakes I didn’t care about everyone else. Yes, they enjoyed them but so what? I need to be saving for my move not trying to make everyone in my office happy for 10 minutes.
Because I’m so far away from my parents (Mom’s in VA, Dad’s in NC) and I have a huge fear of driving large vehicles, I’m going to get some sort of moving cube to move all my stuff. It seems pointless to me to try to drive a U-Haul with my car attached when I don’t even like driving an SUV. I’m hoping I can fit all of my things in my car and in this cube thing. I already know it’s going to cost me a ton but it’s practical and I need practical to reach my goal of leaving NY.
When you have a goal, sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to. This sometimes includes not spending any money on making yourself feel better just because you are down and taking the baby steps towards actually making your goal come true. Achieving your dreams will be the ultimate payoff! So stop sitting there….go mail me some cookies or start making your own goals come true.
THINK AND MAKE IT HAPPEN- Dr. Augusto Cury
Think and Make It Happen was not the book for me. I was not very impressed with it at all. It’s a self-help book that outlines a program for “conquering anxiety, overcoming negative thoughts and discovering your true potential.” Cury starts off by giving different ways to read the book: Read it as you would any other book (which I did), read one chapter a week, or work through the 12 principles in small groups. I chose to read it as I would any other book because I thought it would be an interesting read…boy was I wrong. Cury is very redundant and long winded throughout the entire book. I feel that he was trying to break it down for everyone to understand but man…after a few pages it was like, PLEASE get to the point!
I picked up this book strictly as a self help book, not as a religious book. It seemed like everything tied to Jesus as a man but then Cury would link it back to himself and how he overcame a situation. It got old after awhile plus Cury gave a bunch of medical terms that the average person would not understand. Overall, I would not recommend this book to others unless they have at least a Masters in Psych and are willing to be bored.
