I read a short article (Suitable Disruption) in the Economist the other day and it resonated with me. It's about how nowadays people are seen as more competent and creative if they wear informal or "out there" clothes.

In my early professional (in an office, with other people around me) roles I stood out because I didn't wear a suit. The people who...

You guys have hit the crux of it. If you dress to the occasion (so to speak) you eliminate prejudice in whoever you're dealing with, letting you just get on with business. I guess it's less of an issue if you are not trying to make a good first impression or are not representing your professional entity in some manner but if you're meeting people or dealing with clients it's probably worth putting on the shiny shoes and slacks. Sure, playing to the prejudice just perpetuates it, but not to play to it puts you at a disadvantage.

2 Minutes to Midnight is playing on Rage this morning. What a great way to finish breakfast!

Good Friday was interesting, since there were no buses running (stupid Qbn) and I woke up on a friend's couch in Civic. But I am the dealer of Dollhouse love to another good friend, and she needed her fix biggrin.

Really want my new camera already but have...

Back at uni! Back on SG!

Thanks to a mysterious benefactor... Strange, I was talking to a friend the very same day about how much I missed SG <_<... How long have I been gone? I wonder if I have any chance at all of catching up on the sets I missed. Mid-semester break is coming so hey there's a chance I guess!

So...

I'm working at McDonalds. They give us a meal discount. I've used it once. Now I'm thinking I might just bring some fruit from home. At least until I figure out what there is on the menu that I can eat without feeling ill half an hour later. Off the menu there's chilled water, that's been my staple.

The work...

Rant alert!

You frustrate me. You don't talk to me about anything until it's a huge issue. You use words like "every time" and "always". You start as many fights as you can. But you never finish them. Perhaps you don't understand yourself, so you cannot believe that anyone else can?

But what is the point of existence if you are misunderstood...

So, we're not homeless, which is good. Inspection passed and they want to renew the lease for another year.

I had my only exam for the semester on Tuesday and I think I did OK but of course won't know for sure until marks are released.

So yeah, just kinda relaxing. Sleeping a lot. Not eating enough. Being cold.

Might go out tonight...

That is good, firm advice. It is all too easy to wallow for prolonged periods, without direction or end.

How are you?

Today is the big "inspection tomorrow" cleanup. Months of student boy filth streaming live out of my house. It's refreshing not being the only one who's cleaning.

Dec took me to the cinema on thursday, it was awesome. You must go see noise. And you must go see it where they have a good sound system. I was truly blown away, maybe because...
