I am Don't stop me now.
You live for today in a pretty extreme way, you're so in the now that you
don't even remember that there was a then.
You're incredibly determined and will get what you want by hook or by crook
even if it means stomping on the little people.
But hell... at least you're going to have fun doing it.
What Queen song are you?
admiration and respect of your coworkers. Today, Jessica, you are likely
to learn that the higher-ups think just as well of you. You can expect
to be recognized in some way, either with a promotion, a raise or a
challenging new project. Your career is moving along nicely, giving you
much to celebrate...
This falls right in line with the tarot reading we did in class. I forgot to mention that on my update, but here it is. Basically, the cards are telling me to change my attitude, and that I am valued because of my time here. "Go with the flow" was the general message..so, I'm trying. Funny how this is working out, eh?
During my last few bits of work, I was flipping through lj's in a futile attempt to keep up, and stumbled across digitalscream's friend's diaryland diary. (Uhm...yeah). I like it. I like the diary set up, and I like the way she writes. Color me envious. I have been talented in my writing, but I doubt I've ever been eloquent. Of course, I am my own worst enemy, and while I'm wrinkling my nose and proclaiming "EW!" my friends and loved ones are going "More!". Shall I believe them or just assume they are just biased and boosting my ego? *grin* Either way, it works. I write for me, and hope that others gain pleasure from my words. But, alas, I do stray from the original thought topic....not highly unusual for my wandering mind.
I was once again thinking of the differences between the journaling systems. For those of you just joining my programming, or those who don't remember past showings..I too was a diarylander. Until I discovered lj. This format seems so much easier for me to work with for some reason. I always felt that I fell short on diaryland...mostly with my posting.
The styles seem so different from one to the other..that it just seems my style fits in more here. I know that really no two journals are alike, regardless of where they're kept..but, I don't know. It just feels more natural here to do the 'meandering thought' thing, which I do on occassion..or the more common short posts throughout the day. It also feels more comfortable swearing here. Don't ask, I don't know, I'm just weird that way I guess. All in all, this format just seems easier for me to process in my own little mind, and therefore easier for me to manipulate. Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to knock diaryland..its a wonderful program for those who can manipulate it well. I just didn't feel like one of them.
I can also get and leave comments much easier on this system...I like to know that people read what I write, regardless of how boring and mundane. I dunno..maybe deep down I'm an exhibitionist. *grin* Maybe for me, this is like opening up my living room windows and hoping someone dares to take a peek inside. You may just find furntiure...or you could find something more exotic. Or maybe, its a way of 'giving back'. I like to look into other people's lives...and this allows them to return that. Or maybe its just some far off twisted form of affirmation.
Well, judging by my clock and rapidly rambling thoughts, I'd better get my scruffy ass off the work computer and head to the car, I think my carpool person is almost ready to go.
Tasha states: women's emotions flow from one another much smoother and easier than man-to-woman. It's a point blank truth , though anyone can cut it up and dissect into a million little pieces, women with women merely connect on a more primeaval emotional level.
I have to disagree that its a 'point blank truth'. To whom? Not to me, that's for certain. If its true for her experiences, great! But, it isn't for mine. On the whole, being around other women is awkward for me. I don't know how to relate to them, even on a 'non-romantic' level. Of course, this 'point blank truth' may be for gay women, of which I am not.
Point of fact, in my experience, my emotions 'flow' better when I'm with a man. Perhaps this is the result of being a tom boy at a young age. When I was growing up, for a long time, I was the only female in the neighborhood. Of course, this gave me some insight to how men think and react to things. Oh, I won't pretend to understand them any more than I understand my own gender. Which..I don't.
In my experiences, women are much more confusing and underhanded. This does not, in my opinion, make a 'smooth flow'. I have had very few good experiences with women, primarily due to that distinct lack of emotional flow I have with them. I by no means associate with my 'masculine' side more...in fact, I'm far from masuline. Conversely, I wouldn't really consider myself feminine either, but I suppose that depends on one's definition of feminine. Let me say that mine is the girly girl..all pretty pink lace and ribbons kinda girl. Not me.
This, however, strays from the original thoughts about the journal. Which was primarily to say, that this isn't 'point blank fact'. I know I can't be the only female out there who gets along better on an emotional level with her male counterparts than she does her female counterparts.....
