What defines a business or rather MY business

Today a computer geek – naming no one – said to me when I said to him this web-hosting company gives unlimited e-mail accounts

You can grow your company without limit.

I couldn’t help but laugh out loud… and respond

So my company is defined by the number of e-mail accounts not by its business!!

Sickness

Follow-up to Illness from Fiona's blog

I never knew I was allegic to exams… they caused me flu and migranes and asthma!

My illness have gone far enough for me! I went to see the doctor yesterday morning before my exam to see what they could give me to make me feel better.

They gave me 6 little pills to sollow every morning for 5 days.

I felt a little better in the afternoon.

Today was feeling ok ish for the exam in the morning.

Somehow after lunch the exam…. I managed to need run out to the toliet to throw up in the middle of the exam. I returned to my seat feeling sick still and dizzy or more likely wanting to faint.

End the Spam Cycle

Now I am forced to sit in front of my desk all day revising and somehow couldn’t help checking my e-mail too often and blogging. Well, I genuinely want to share some funny stuff I suddenly received in an e-mail account I consider to contain only SPAM

I decided why should I be annoying and forward them to people. I have almost given everyone the URL to this blog, so if they care enough about me they could read my blog and they will find depressing stories of mine, cynical views of the world, random thoughts and pictures I have taken and most of all the things I find funny.

Ich habe always been a person who likes to share… stories, adventures, pictures, and friends. Some how I have been scaring people away or something that they don’t like me sharing. I don’t really ask for anything in return maybe just to stick around until I finish giving.

I am not really getting depressed as exams doom over my head (maybe after so many years of exams I am immune to it or them rather) just into a state of cynicality. I see everything darker, gloomier angles of things.. everything (to be continued)


Fatherly Pride

I would like to share a story that is now been the second time sent to me... a funny story that I had no one to share with the first time round I got it. Now I have the chance to share and here it is:

Four friends, who hadn't seen each other in 30 years, reunite at a party.

After several drinks, one of the men had to use the rest room. Those who remained talked about their kids.

The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working at a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied Economics and Business Administration and soon began to climb the corporate ladder and now he's the president of the company. He became so rich that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for his birthday"

The second guy said, "Damn, that's terrific! My son is also my pride and joy. He started working for a big airline, then went to flight school to become a pilot Eventually he became a partner in the company, where he owns the majority of its assets. He's so rich that he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday."

The third man said: "Well, that's terrific! My son studied in the best universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave away something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday: A 30,000 square foot mansion."

The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth returned from the rest-room and asked: "What are all the congratulations for?"

One of the three said: "We were talking about the pride we feel for the successes of our sons. …What about your son?"

The fourth man replied: "My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a stripper at a nightclub."

The three friends said: "What a shame…what a disappointment."

The fourth man replied:

No, I'm not ashamed. He's my son and I love him. And he's lucky, too. His birthday just passed and the other day he received a beautiful 30,000 square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes from his three boyfriends."

Is giving 100% enough?

Follow-up to The fittest survive or the most read? from Fiona's blog

I am glad that some people actually read my weblog. YEAH. Well somehow it seems these days EQ and interpersonal skills gets you further than IQ.

To avoid being sued for plagiarism I hereby give credits to whoever wrote the following clever mathematical formula.
Unfortunately I don't know who wrote this originally but I received it through my inbox from my friend William (don't know his surname either).

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:

If:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

and

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But,

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And,

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Bullshit and Ass-kissing that will put you over the top.

Idea of revision

The whole idea of revision… does it meant to put you off or encourage you? I was never sure. By glancing at my shelf the stuff I should know the number of pages of information scares me. I suppose I know most of it as I have been working throughout the year steadily but yet still I files and lectures notes intimidates me. Makes me feel like I don’t know anything.

Is there a cure for such disorder or is it common to others too?

I am looking forward to the holidays yet dreading as I have the unsettled feeling that I might need to come back for re-sits.

The fittest survive or the most read?

Yet another day. Yet another year. I thought life would be interesting at University that I won’t get bored but this year have proven wrong. I blame it mostly on my injury or (I should but it as Ex-injury). I need to get out more often and regularly. I need to get more fresh air regularly. As I catch up with friends who are still on their gap year I am not sure whether I am depressed by the fact that they are out and about having no worries of exams or lucky in a sense that I still have a little concentrate let from school for me to cope with exams!

Exams exams exams… is that all academic have evolved to? I know that it is suppose to benchmark people so for employers or who ever else easier to identify the quality they need in people. Now it had become ridiculous I think. You have to take a personality test to prove that you can get a long with people so you can be hired? WHAT?! When had it meant that if you failed to answers these questions in a certain way or you so happen that you didn’t get on with the person access you that means that you are unable to work with other people? I still believe in experiences rather than text books. Not everyone can learn from text books efficiently that they would be able to apply to situations. Whereas “putting one at a deep end” makes them have to learn fast and apply what they already know. The world is all about survival the fittest not about who can read most, which is not what I believe God's design is about.

Another year rather than another day!

Yet another year has flown by. Still don’t really know what I am doing. Travelling aimlessly… well at that time there were reasons and points but now looking back at everything it seem rather pointless. I don’t know exactly why and how but I have yet entered another pessimistic spell. Maybe because of exams… an allergic reaction to exams. I don’t seem to know what my brain does to my body these days. Kind of I know it is working hard spinning hard but I seem to have last track what it is doing! What it is doing to me! I feel rather lost… so lost that somehow I think/I seem to have to found my Nemo that I still feel I am lost somewhere… I am not saying I feel like I have lost something… just lost maybe in translation as I experience a decline in my understanding in this language I am so tying in……
