Simone and I went to visit the old folks in the north and they were all impressed that I brought a beautiful Switz girl along. It was total bliss because everyone loved her. She was a natural crowd charmer, so the pressure was lighter on me. You know, being "Switz" "girl".
That's good news.
Now, they want to meet her again. Shit!
The thing is, I can't do that. it was a bad idea to bring her to these folks in the first place. Not to mention "staying for dinner"! (yes, they invited us to STAY FOR DINNER)
She's not even my girlfriend, and not that I'm trying to make that impression. Although (to be honest) she can be easily mistaken as my girlfriend because we've spend every single day of the last 15 days (since we met) together, excluding the mushy stuff like kissing, holding hands, or flirt. Okay, maybe a bit of flirting.
She's got her own boyfriend at the moment who's currently "back home for holiday".
Nasty business. Another stupid manipulative game. Then again, this is still the least of my worries. I've got more disaster lined up for me.
I'm 21 years old. I'm fit and healthy physically. But mentally, I feel so old and grumpy. It's as if I'm so tired of all this on-going life drama that never cease to have an ending. One after another, failure after failure, at least I have some improvement. Not that I'm giving up, but the feeling of emotional exhaustion is getting to me.
In the past, to solve a problem is as easy as finding a solution. It was also easy to alter my state of mind using some perspective change. Today, the problem is largely triggered by emotions and no number of recipe can help.
Really, I shouldn't see Simone or Anna again. Maybe Claudia for that candle light dinner, but really I should cut down on going out with them again. Ever. Again.
I've made up my mind to end the game. Backing-off steps would involve: not making anymore efforts, accepting invitations under strict rules and obligations, just friends.
John of Darkskies just send me a contact form on one of his new ideas.
It's pretty cool and I can see he has had some thoughts put into it. It's a set of tags for different tagging services.
I'm not sure social networking is the right term to use here since it's basically just tagging. And tagging has got nothing to do with social, only helps with search engine rankings and search engine traffics.
Let me give you an example: Windows Live Mail beta. This entry, more than any entry in this blog received a huge boost due to those taggings.
Anyway, it's still a pretty good idea. Should your reader feel like they want to find out more about the related topic, they can just follow those links and see what other people are talking about.
We still lack enough reasons why people should start tagging. It's like, what's the point of using "Extended entry" or "keywords". What's the point of having them? What do they do? Until now, eventhough I'm using them, I'm still not exactly clear what they are for.
J f Z has some pretty nice logos to help promote this habit. Although unnecessary because you can do it without them, but it adds style and class to it.
