It’s Friday so why not do another post about my random thoughts/observations/questions? I might as well make this a Friday ritual…
- why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety-one?
- have you filed your taxes yet?
- just found out i am going to Seattle for work — sweet!
- is it how often you drink or how much you drink which makes you an alcoholic?
- or is it just if you do bad things when you’re drunk that makes you an alcoholic?
- women with long legs and high heels are sexy except if they cannot walk in them (do some girls just not care? or do they really not realize how ridiculous they look trying to walk in them?)
- speaking of women, they should all own a pair of low top, black, chuck taylor’s (just saying)
- i cannot decide if lingerie is just a waste and only looks good in magazines or if it’s really practical
- download ‘Be My Thrill’ and ‘World Spins Madly On’ by The Weepies
- does anyone want to buy my iPad?
- blowing your nose too much and having it get raw is awful
- my morale at work would increase if it was casual day every day
- i think there was some slight sarcasm ^ then again…
- logging what you eat definitely makes eating healthier much easier
- i turn 24 in approximately 16 days — i can’t decide if that’s old?! haha
- i’ll be in florida on the beach for my birthday so it doesn’t really matter
- i have no explanation for why or why i didn’t capitalize certain words in this post
- i’m going to see ‘Hair’ this weekend at The Orpheum
- do people generally prefer sex with the lights on or off?
- does pressing the elevator buttons more make the door close faster?
- if you haven’t made out in an elevator, do it. you’d be surprised how fast you get to your desired floor
- this is what i’m eating for breakfast tomorrow morning
- disregard what i said about eating healthy above (saturday is my free day)
- on that note, have a wonderful friday and weekend, folks
Have you ever not said or done something because you were scared to get rejected and/or end up with nothing? If so, we all know how it goes: we feel like we should not have said anything and kept going with what we had because we were content – whatever that means. We try to justify that having something is better than having nothing. But we shouldn’t be content with what we have right now if we want something more. Simply going through the motions because we’re afraid that asking for more might result in us having less, or nothing, is the wrong way to look at it. If you want more, it means you’re not happy with the current situation. Holding onto this because it’s “something” is a waste of your time and effort. Waiting around for more to just come may eventually happen, but the possibility of waiting around and that resulting in nothing is just as likely. It isn’t worth the risk.
Ask yourself this: would you rather ask for more knowing you tried and did everything in your power to achieve this and end up with nothing (and be slighty embarrassedal albeit only temporarily) or continue trying to convince yourself that what you have now is ok but more would be much better never knowing if you could have actually had more?
I almost learned the hard way; fortunately, it wasn’t too late and things worked out for the better. Don’t find out the hard way. Say something regardless if it’s easier said than done.
(This might be rather confusing because I purposely left this as vague as possible, but you can apply it to anything this way – your current job situation, a relationship, etc.)
Ahh yeah, so instead of me sitting here beginning this post with how long it has been since I have last posted I will skip that and just say, whoa! I got myself a “real” job and shit has been hectic ever since. I am currently in training right now so it’s like college all over again except that I have to go, and I get to learn more in three weeks than I ever did in four years of school. My current title is software developer which is in obvious relation to my major, computer science, and I couldn’t have gotten myself into a better situation. I am stoked to get things underway and see what happens in the next couple of years. Along with being a software developer, I have learned more about the insurance industry in the last two days than I ever thought I’d need to know in a lifetime. It would have been helpful to know all of this information before I filled out the paperwork and read my benefits, and by read I do not mean understand.
Anyway, I do hope to write more in the following days/weeks since I will be spending plenty of nights in a hotel room.
