Bonjour Mes Ami,
It’s been a tough week. A few hours ago I spoke to my Uncle in the UAE to give him my condolences on losing his wife. He’s my favorite uncle on my mother’s side… tough times.
I’ve been living alone for the past few weeks.. my wife is in Jordan with my daugher visiting her parents. Which is probably one of the reasons why I am so introspective these days. I miss them horribly but inshallah (God Willing) I’ll be joining my family in Jordan in a couple of weeks for a bit of vacation time… so my posts might become a little more sporadic.
Today while browsing my LinkedIn account I noticed that it looked very familiar… and as I tried to remember where I had seen this front end (geek talk for the interface of a website) it finally clicked that its the same software that Voices.com now uses after their system upgrade late last year.
I write really long emails when any of my readers contact me.. then I think about publishing them… then decide not to because of privacy issues… note to self… stop writing long ass emails or just ask people if they mind if I publish their emails… I’m not too lazy to write the long emails… just too impatient to write in asking for permission to publish emails.
epiphany here is … I’m lazy in some things but not in others.
People are generally awkward when it comes to money. I noticed from a couple of people who wanted to advertise with me that they don’t know how to gracefully back out of a negotiation… I wont mention who or why the backed out… and I don’t really care. Its just that its usually polite to inform the second party that you have decided to go with someone else… this is a business deal not dating… I won’t stalk you or embaress you in public (ok maybe embaress you in public if you were rude to me).
Epiphany here is… Being polite hurts no one and burns no bridges… Also don’t piss taji off .. he has a blog and he will use it.
Voices dot com are back to using the profile images on their front page… which they had said they wouldnt in a post from Stephanie’s blog Vox Daily entitled Statistics Don’t Lie: Introducing Voices dot com’s New Home Page.
the epiphany is … I guess the statistics do lie… because it only took them a couple of months to switch back to their usual look.
I can’t decide on what new laptop to buy. I was thinking of a Dell.. something nice with an extended battery. This should set me back around $1,032 it won’t be the fastest thing out there… but i’ll be a nice and very fast machine that lasts for a good 5 hours per charge.
This could be nice for editing and recording… I need to do more research… need to go to more than just one showroom.
Final Epiphany… stop writing blog posts and go out to the computer stores and do some more research… I must fight apathy!!!…. or not.
anyone want to share their epiphanies for this week? Lets see if you guys can fight your own apathy and leave a comment.
