If you are not having fun,
you are not doing something right!
Hate work?
Dread your in-laws coming?
Bored with life?
Terrified by Big Brother possibilities?
Not enough money, too many bills?
How do you break out of this cycle?

Here is the secret:
Become selfish.
Hard to believe, eh?
Do it! If you don’t like your job
Quit!
Find work that gives you joy.

Surround yourself with
people who make you laugh
inspire you
people you love to be with

God wants us to have fun
to enjoy life, for look at
this amazing world He made.

Make fun a force in your life.
Spread it to others.
Find out what makes you
eager for the next time,
then…just do it!

Pick up the Pieces; On-wards and Upwards…

Hey, Journal.

 

So. Yesterday I was well enough to pick up my results. Got home and read them. They were not good (not that I was expecting that they would be). I’m still…absorbing.

I’m doing better than could have been expected. Last time I got bad results it took me almost a year to fully deal (long story) and get over it, proper. Anyyyways. This here, is a bit of a negative-nelly of a post.

I have three -now two- People To Tell (whom I must). One by one, I will. I will not be ashamed too much.  So, I just told my sister(in law) that they were Bad. I’m retaking. And she was cool, hid any response other than you know, feeling bad for me. But she kept pointing out how, hey, maybe apprenticeships are the way forward for me!

 

Maybe I’m not a study-and-exam kinda girl.

 

Which I feel is important (so I’m recording it here); if it’s truely my choice to do so, then yeah.  If not, then this can be motivation towards people maybe-possibly thinking me unable to do well in exams. Hey, it could work, and push me when I’m low on energy (yk, when you have silent, secret pep-talks to yourself, in your head, or even ALOUD- saying where you wanna go, why you wanna go there, The Dream- and of course, all you’ve overcome, to get to where you are. Then. Then I shall see this and be Renewed. Hopefully).

 

So that’s why it’s here! Personally, I don’t think that apprenticeships are the way forward for me, but you know what? Im gonna really have a look-see anyway. MAYBE They are a Better Investment. Maybe they’re not the way to go.

But I think I’m gonna retake (cos HELL NO, Wait a minute. Too. Many. People DO NOT think I can do this. AND I CAN. WATCH ME. RAWWWR.) with my own money, thankyouverymuch. But in the long run it could be cooler. We shall see. They’re not bad, and I could go into a whole lecture of this, prooving to any poor soul stumbling across this rant that I truely think this -because I DO-, but I don’t have the Time atm (her husband, my bro and Dad could stumble in at ANY MOMENT.)

I just know I want GOOD DARN GRADES, THAT I DESERVE AND WILL NOT HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY.

BECAUSE, MINI-ME- SHE WOULD KICK. MY. ASS (OhMyWordISAIDThatWord!)…If she ever thought I was GIVING UP, not on my own DARN terms, but on

SOMEONE (s) ELSE’S.

 

It’s just not done.

AND I HAVE GIVEN TOO MUCH, DEDICATED TOO MUCH. ONLY TO HAVE ‘OKAY’ GCSE’S….AND CRAP, A LEVELS. NOT HAPPENING.

 

 

We’ll see how this goes (And, future Nami, IF YOU SEE THIS : Get a grip. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE. Proove yourself. Do it. Don’t think; you’re here, at this moment, looking at this PEP TALK, because you are OVER THINKING IT. Trust  Me, I’ve been there more recently than You have, hun. Just do work. Remember: You have goals to accomplish, you’ve covered miles on your own, and even more with the occassional boost from a friend or two. IF YOU DO NOT accomplish your Dream( and eventual -s’)….who will? How long til it happens? Huh? So, just go for it. PUSH YOURSELF PAST THE BLOOMIN’ WALLS YOU HAVE SET UP. YOU ARE SMART, CLEVER SOMETIMES, AND DARN CREATIVE AND WEIRD. YOU CAN DO THIS. Go!!! )

 

Ukraine Update

Hi!

 

I’ll post up the older and written out posts concerning Russia and Ukraine (and predictions) when I have more time, I promise. For the mean time, however, there’s this:

 

Ukraine, in a recent (1 minute ago) news update, showed broken down buildings, a mysterious crater (evidence of a small-scale missile, perhaps?) and speculations on how long the brave, eccentric but competant army-people SEPARATISTS will be able to hold out against Russia. Speculations on how there seems to be ‘an air of resignation’ about the place, that they’ll fight til the end.

 

And mentioning of the Russian-elected (UNLAWFULLY) leader of the force to invade   sorry (except not really) ‘occupy’ Ukraine, resigning and being replaced by another. Perhaps due to his failure to Immediately Join Ukraine With Mother Russia? Eventhough, you know (or you  history-lovers will, anyway), Ukraine is kindof maybe importantly part of something called the ‘push barrier’ (I think; for some reason I forget this term from time to time. It accounts for all the neutral lands i.e. Poland, Ukraine in between Russia and the West- that no one takes over or breaches as it’s the protective layer that ensures no war or take overs. Hence, if anyone tries to breach it….the other non-trusting side will see, see?).

I just hope no policy of appeasement is followed for Putin  the leader of Russia. Because it worked so well for Hitler, right? Oh wait. It didn’t.

 

As my old History Teacher taught me (one of many viewpoints):

 

What was wrong with appeasement?

Put bluntly:

  • “It rewarded and encouraged bullying, aggressive behaviour.
  • Hitler was untrustworthy.
  • Germany & Hitler grew stronger.
  • USSR were alienated from western allies.”

Replace Germany and Hitler with….you know.

[Not my image: DISCLAIMED. Google search this?]

Also, I can’t remember right now (it has been a long day today, alright?)- but Putin openly did something that, when I witnessed on the news, I was sure would be a declaration of war. All but. Scary moment, that. Also, I should probably mention the so-called punitive(right word here?) punishment on Russians all over thanks to…whomever was attempting to ‘punish’ or discourage Putin. Bad idea, all I’m going to say.

Putin Ukraine 4

DISCLAIMED! Says: “PUTIN! STOP! COME BACK HERE OR I’LL BE FORCED TO DRAFT A STRONGLY WORDED CONDEMNATION!”

Also, maybe they should consider nipping this thing in the bud, whilst they can? It looks like it’ll be a fight either way, and this way, no real land and consequently forces have been gained (And people harmed/therefore lost).

Just sayin’. Should’ve been done with Hitler; World War Two could’ve been, like, the battle of Germany-Rhineland and The Big Three. Or something similar.

For goodness sakes- put it down, and put it down hard.

Or darnwell get tacticle (like..ninjas…) and retrain troops better. and make the police have more pride and motivation on the home-front whilst you’re at it, World. Here in the UK they need some revving up. Not constant attacks, you know? Not good for anyone’s confidence or sense of camaraderie. Also, it’s bad that soldiers give…important parts of themselves -sometimes again and again- only to come home and be unsafe. So, yeah. Help the Police here in the UK too please.

(INSPIRE YOURSELF BY BLUE BLOODS. No, not the same- make it your own! But see how it’s worked elsewhere.)

Geez. If only.

Nami, OUT!

Sleep Schedule: Update!

Hiya Dear Diary,

 

So- I have not got full informed consent from the Boss Man, but I have got a ‘yes’ (mentioned previously?) and I have made attempts to rectify the ‘informed’ part- since the last post.

 

Soo, whilst I’m waiting, I think I’ll brace myself and start that schedule on Sunday. Hopefully I can get a more information-oriented post up before then, for anyone who can see this! And for past reference. Also, hopefully a GP can be got-hold-of by Sunday, so I have someone who knows how to help monitor me.

 

Maybe advice’ll be given.

 

Then I can spend that time on more useful means and plots  ideas. Yay!

Just a quick update,

 

Nami Out! :)

——————————————————————————————————————–

Edit:

This did not publish for some reason. It’s up now.

Today’s the day. Got the Boss to read an article on Polyphasic Sleep (brief, but highlighting benefits and warnings). Making an appointment with the GP tomorrow!

 

Bye Bye,

Nami

Starting To Wake Up…Polyphasic Sleep Schedule

07-07-14

Dear Diary (Yes, I’m going there- I feel like it!),

After having spent nigh on two weeks ‘relaxing’, after the June Exams, I am ready to begin the arduous fun of Setting-In-Motion a Gap Year.

It’s Aims- next post. This will count as a ‘Project'(MAJOR) of mine.

As will UCAS (to make it more fun).

And will my documentation of my start to Polyphasic Sleep! I thought I’d expend real effort(shown later on, during the next 7-10 days, the ‘Adjustment Period’, I’d say) and post at least something everyday, even if it’s just a bunch of to-the-point words on a page.

Introduction to Polyphasic Sleep 

I decided to commit the Polyphasic change to my sleep cycle aprox. two years ago, at some point in the future. That time, with the safe go-ahead from my higher ups, is now.

Starting tonight.

Like any good learner/researcher/student-of-the-New-IT-Age, upon discovering it whilst surfing, I sought to inform myself of it. I decided to read up on what Polyphasic Sleep was, how to prepare for it, and what it was like and different types. There were lots of interesting facts and statistics, often comparing the different types of Polyphasic Sleep Schedules to that of normal sleep. 

There are different types, and I specifically would like to do the ‘Everyman’.

Here are some of the good bits for your information(websites referenced at bottom for a more in-depth reading):

Different Sleep Types, with the amount of downtime shown clearly. It should be noted, however that for the Everyman, Uberman and Dymaxion that the times for sleep can be broken down even more or other segments, and could be at differing times. These Pies ONLY show the total amount of sleep-time.

 

This one includes monophasic sleep- or, 'Normal People Sleep'!

This one includes monophasic sleep- or, ‘Normal People Sleep’!

 

I’ve got to go for tonight- will post up Part Two tomorrow! (TBC…)

Heeeyy :D Jus sayin Hi – An Introduction of Me

Hii.

So, I thought I’d get into trouble today. Turns out(thanks to a very amazing friend) that if you dont make much of a fuss and (KEY) avoid eye contact, you actually can get away with it.

Todays been nice..nice weather, nice lessons, nice atmosphere…generally. Yep. Im completley new to this, so Im attempting to write something.

Does anyone know about Air Cadets? I have to look them up..I’m going to do Rounders, softball, Hindi lessons and self learn Keyboard too. :D (This summer) So, look out for that. If I know you. If I dont- then thats just creeeppy.

Q- I’m writing a novel at the moment. Are you?

So. Introduction. INTRODUCTION.

An Introduction of Me.  Im a generally hardworker, who doesn’t like to b*tch about anyone. I’ll complain to lighten an atmosphere- and IF somethings serious, otherwise Ill say nothing. I like to try new things.  I don’t like to lie- but will do to protect people… I like lots of things. I am not a hater of anything and I cant sing. :D

Q- If you HAD(Keyword) to sum up your personality in five words, what would they be??
