Study hard, believe in yourself, stay sexy, and follow your dreams.– Amy Poehler, to her “class” of “med students” at UCB last night. (via allisonweiss) yes, this happened. there were tons of other incredibly hilarious lines, but i can’t remember them. i feel so damn lucky that she was there last night. i heart her.

Also, screw Enimem. He was rubbish before and he’s exactly the same now. Good god.
Working from home
I *think* i could do this. The difference with today from being in my flat is that I’m in a nice house, I’m in a really nice minimalist room, with a big table that had nothing on it before I got here. Takes discipline, but this where I have previously done my best work. Will try to recreate.
We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.– Walt Disney This applies to more things as well. For me its my company and my job. I’m thinking right now I make money to exist and my company doesn’t have a similar thing.

We have it easy
That’s what I wrote when I was in India. Its the truth. We have the opportunity and head start to do whatever we want.

Nothing else new...
Three day week.
This week has been a three day week. It is almost perfect. Going into the previous weekend after four days of positive activities. Followed by resting, moving one agenda forward, watching positive tv, running, organising, cooking something new and mario kart. A beginning, middle and end to work preceeding a guaranteed fun four day weekend.
I got bored at work during the week, but once I could get away from my desk, away from everyone and be inspired by things I like and my own ideas and environment, I was ready to go back out there. Like a three day weekend condensed into fifteen minutes.
Save me from what I want
Apt title from St Vincent. Hiccups along the way, making progress (finally), but need a bit more of a safety net, can’t account for everything. Suddenly I realise that the advice was good, must follow more of it. Such a minor showstopper, so needless. I went to Spain a few years ago, for two weeks. I thought it was the most bored I’ve ever been, because I didn’t have much to...
