Inspiration

I would have commented on YouTube but, well. No account, no comment. Hence, I decided to share the video here. One of the many black holes of the Internet.

Really, really inspiring. Will help decide young people what to do. Or what not to do. Either way, helps keeping the thoughts going crazy :) Thanks!

Facebook Experiment

The Facebook exper­i­ment I started exactly one year ago ended almost ended yesterday. I decided to delete my account because of Face­book’s privacy policy. It’s just ridicu­lous, far beyond common sense and I really don’t see a reason for accepting something that stupid.

Past Feelings

It happens now and then that I think back, remem­ber­ing past times. Times when somehow special events took place. School, for example, was special in a way, in a quite uncom­fort­able sense.

End of the Year

It’s the same (procedure) every year: people start thinking about what to change in the new year, or even worse: what to change with the dawn of the new year’s first day. In most cases, these ideas are scrapped quite quickly. I’m quite sure that you all know what I mean. I don’t like the idea of forcing changes, espe­cially regarding changes in one’s way of living, attitude, or behaviour. Sad but true, people are trying to force other people to change something quite fre­quently. That doesn’t work with me. Admit­tedly, that’s not entirely true. It works in the sense that I will most probably react in a way that was not intended by the other person. Kind of bucking the trend. That’s me :)

Airport People
Airport People: Almost always in a hurry

The last days I (again) thought about a lot of things. On Wednesday, when I walked through and sat around in Bremen’s airport, I watched the people around me. They were walking, talking, hurrying, waiting, greeting, going, chatting, laughing, dreaming, hoping, being wild with excite­ment, had a thrill of anti­cip­a­tion. These are only some attrib­utes I noticed; the last one might be quite well known for one or two readers. The excite­ment I actually perceived only with two indi­vidu­als: a woman that had just arrived from London and a dog that was so excited about the arrival of a couple (I suppose) that he (or she) spun and twisted around him- or herself like mad. It’s really, really inter­est­ing to think about the stories that cause such emotional behaviour. Espe­cially airports and rail stations are places where you can observe a broad range of excite­ments, it’s fas­cin­at­ing. I’m normally quite neutral in the sense that … well, just neutral, you know? :)

Currently, I’m currently on holiday, just doing nothing except things I like. This includes trying to avoid any reachable computer device (except for answering emails or writing blog entries in the evenings). It’s great, I hate computer I have to admit. It’s not possible without them but also not with them. This also implies that there’s enough time to recap what happened the last year. Coming back to the initial topic, I just wanted to say that I never want to be so stupid, so self-destruct­ive, and dump like sometimes in the last years. Would be great if (whoever reads this mostly redundant post) could remind me of that (for now and the upcoming years)! Thanks and have a nice end of the year :)

It is

It is never easy to stop thinking when thoughts are going crazy. The same is true for dealing with idiotic people. Even though these problems are not directly related to each other, both are awkward. You can only try to give you best, dis­reg­ard­ing the actual con­sequences. Thinking about past events is often futile. Sometimes, however, it can be helpful. It’s up to you.

If, however, some stupid, ignorant and arrogant guys think that they’re omni­scient and impec­cable, some guys that can influence your mood and your pro­fes­sion­al repu­ta­tion in a way that you are almost unable to get your work done, you often can’t do anything by yourself. This is one of the most unpleas­ant situ­ations one can get into.

Just wanted to mention this … dazzlingly, me.

Why…

Why’s everything so dratted com­plic­ated and why am I so madly fas­cin­ated?

Mondays

are not always bad. Sometimes the weekends are much worse. Not knowing what to do, being inactive, simply a lazy fool? This weekend’s over — in a few minutes! Cheers! :P

Let’s see …

… what’s going to happen today. No matter what, I’m weary. The point is that I’m the “Beruf­sop­tim­ist” (optimist by pro­fes­sion), sometimes also referred to as Marvin, so everything’s going to be fine today. Ok, ok, just kidding. Yesterday, I broke two glasses, an empty one and one filled with corn. It’s real fun to clear away thousands of tiny little pieces of broken glass, sharp-edged as … broken glass. Great. I didn’t even know that glass is capable of breaking into such damn little pieces. Anyway. My finger is fine again today and the floor in front of the fridge is now clean, too.
