Don't procrastinate too much

I guess most people procrastinate. People prefer short-term gratification to long-term gratification. To live for today and less for tomorrow.

How to deal with rejection

Learn from your mistakes. Why were you rejected? One possible reason could be that you flirted obviously. That you revealed your feelings and intentions too easily and too early. That people became uncomfortable with you before they got the chance to know you.
Anyway don't feel rejected. What you think is what matters. If you think people are getting uncomfortable with you, simply step back. Pretend disinterest. Stop and wait. Demonstrate high status and high value. Be self-confident. Keep improving yourself. Improve the quality of your life. Meet other more interesting people.

Sony DSC-S730

I bought a new compact camera today. It's a Sony DSC-S730, 7.2 megapixel, 3x optic zoom. I just want to take pictures of my surroundings and my friends.
This morning I had replace a control valve with a smart one by Fisher. The new one was heavy but alone I managed to install it. I had to climb a tower a number of times to do it.

Love yourself

"For most people their true self remains definitely and deeply hidden. How can one love something if one doesn't know it, if it is never loved by others. Many intelligent people live without any inkling of the true self, perhaps in love with their idealized, conforming, false self -- unless a depression points to what they have lost, or a psychosis confronts them harshly with their real self, they are helplessly left with as a stranger."
--Alice Miller, the drama of the intelligent child. Translated from Dutch.

maandag 21 april 2008


Many times I have difficulty concentrating. My mind tends to wonder. And when it does I think about being in love. I think about her. And I think she loves me. But I can't be with her.
I'm trying to improve my Dutch so I go to an evening school. Often I am too tired to pay attention. I tend to become bored. (A number of my classmates have dropped out already.) This evening I tried to relieve my boredom by studying faces. I examined everyone's facial features, eye colour, hair and hairdo, mouth, lips, front teeth, and the way each one smiles.
The teacher had asked everyone to write an haiku last week. I didn't have much time so I wrote one quickly.

I really have a lot of things to tell but I'm afraid I would bore people and make them think I'm jabbering all the time. But sometimes it feels good to just mention certain things.
Yesterday I went to a "rommel markt"; I like going to these events. I got a lot of things at give-away prices. Things I really needed. To make my life more comfortable. And perhaps make me more attractive and iresistible.
While interacting with people I noticed that most of them were very friendly and kind towards me. A few of them looked at me with some degree of shyness. I don't know why. One woman mumbled something to herself when she gave me my things. Something like "schattig". I don't know what she really meant. Or maybe I was just imagining things.
I also noticed that some women were teasing me.
While going for a spin today, two young girls kept teasing me. They said I was wearing very nice sunglasses. And they asked where I bought it. I was about to give it away but realized I was wearing a single pair and didn't want to make the other jealous.
Yesterday, I saw Rebecca, who works at the local supermarket. She's very pretty and she's hot. She's a natural blond but her beauty is not flawless. Well, at least according my ideal. There is something about her face that makes her less perfect. And I don't know exactly what it is. But she's probably the prettiest of them all.
I've been flirting with her taking care not to be obvious. And she wouldn't look me in the eye. I think most hot girls don't stare into other people's eyes. She just kind of squint at me. And I take it as an indication of interest. So I reward her by actually wagging my brows at her openly the last times. She's beginning to laugh at me and with me.
There are a lot of other things I want to mention. But it would open some old wounds for me.

Party Animal

I was invited to the twelve and half year jubileum of our company. I had to go to place called Mitwolda for the party. So I looked it up on internet in order to find out how to get there easily. The first thing I came across thru google was a place called Mitwolde. So I went there and I found out I arrived at the wrong place. Luckily I had plenty of time and managed to get to the right one, which was really much closer to where I live. This things happen to me a lot. Perhaps because I rely too much on my intuition and vague feeling of being led by an unknown higher force or higher Self that some people call God or Buddha. Well, I became much wiser. Knowledge is power. A little is an expensive way to learn and wasteful.
Everybody was looking good and being at their best, wearing their prettiest clothes and acting like very successful people. I love the food and the entertainment; I forgot that I was vegetarian.

Don't. Don't. Don't.

Thou shall not. This is my strongest mantra. Use it whenever you don't know what to do. Just don't be Jewish, Christian or Muslim about it. Don't do it. Whatever.

Don't waste your time on people who are not available

Look around. Be friendly. But don't show too much interest. In fact pretend disinterest. Or just a little interest. A slight crush is enough if you love flirting. And don't be too available. Well, if you want to be attractive and to be admired.

Don't be a wussy

It's very unattractive. Nobody respects a wimp and a pussy. To avoid being a wussy, you've got to have self-respect. And don't trade it for a little bit of love and affection.

Judge not, that ye be not judged.

Ye hypocrites!

More books

I'm trying to read a Dutch translation of Alice Miller's Das Drama des begabten Kindes und die suche nach dem wahren Selbst. Literally: The drama of the intelligent child and the search for the true self. A study on narcissism.
I bought several pocket books including a Dutch translation of Jung Chang's Wild Swans, Three Daughters of China, and Artists on Arts.
Again not much time to read.

Endure suffering. But don't be a saint.

vrijdag 4 april 2008

Keep yourself busy

Or pretend to be. Well, I've been very busy. I just don't have time for anything. I mean I have a lot of paperwork. And no time to fix anything. I've been living on vegetarian pizzas, pancakes, eggs, vegetables and fruit because I don't have time to cook.
Pardon me, I shouldn't be talking about boring things.
