From all that I saw, and everywhere I wandered, I learned that time cannot be spent. It only can be squandered. ~Roman Payne

Clipped from the Tricycle editor's blog:

Some pithy Words of Wisdom from Lama Surya Das:

That which we call “I” is just impermanent, ownerless karma rolling along.

Don’t take it personally.


Reality is not all it’s cracked up to be.


I’m enlightened enough for now.


Don’t forget to medicate the ferrets.

You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around...

Ok so I've been on Facebook for a while now and I haven't gotten all that much use out of it, save for finding a few long-lost friends and keeping in touch with others who aren't on much as I would like to Superpoke you all back, take the quizzes, accept your gifts, hugs, good karma, and so on, I just don't have the time to keep up with it all. Please don't be sad if I don't always reciprocate. I still love you:)


Anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.

UNLoadOut 003
Originally uploaded by mirvana.

I wasn't initially planning on going with the boyfriend to the Ai500 Black Jack event at Fort Blanding in a couple weeks. However, I decided to combine the trip with a visit to my grandfather who lives in Florida and so...I did not have all the stuff to do the load-out for a combatant/player in the game, but I still wanted to participate in some active way. This is my attempt at an NPC "UN observer/reporter" costume. Notice the UN flash on the hat, and the robin egg blue vest. I also have a light blue baseball cap with the UN logo on it, and I applied a UN badge to the backpack that I'm going to carry. I made the vest, based on an existing bulletproof vest that Stef has. I bet that no one else has ever gone to such lengths for an NPC.

Tell me, and I will forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I will understand. ~Chinese proverb


For some reason, I feel like I'm sending "positivity vibes" (that's a technical term) out to the universe today. Can you feel it?

No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

Advice to new grads

After graduating from college umpteen years ago, I somehow managed to find a successful career. It's had itse ups and downs, but I can safely say that I'm happy with it now. I make enough money to keep a roof over my head and pay for my hobbies and indulgences. I get enough time off and flexibility with my schedule to have a life outside of work. How did I get there? Well, I didn't realize it at the time, but I was following the advice in this article, on Get Rich Slowly.

Some Excerpts:

"Treat your time as an investment. It’s more important to invest your time wisely than to invest your money wisely."

"The people you work with are more important than the company. You want to work with people who have high integrity, people you can trust. It’s nice to work for a great company, but it’s better to work with great people."

"What you studied in school does not matter. Students should major in subjects they enjoy. They should pursue learning. One of Ron’s colleagues is a brilliant lawyer who has a degree in music. He knows a judge with a degree in pharmacology. Your degree does not matter."

"Self-discipline is the common denominator among the successful. In order to get into college and to earn a degree, one must exercise delayed gratification. This doesn’t end after school. Delayed gratification and self-discipline are necessary for continued success in life."

"Be willing to do grunt work. By doing the entry-level jobs, you’re building skills necessary to move up. As you progress in your career, find things in each job to be passionate about."

"It’s more important to be happy than it is to be rich."
