Inept Sloths

My presentation is due tomorrow, so here I am thinking about sloths. Don't ask, but if you do let me assure you I know exactly what I'm doing. And I just checked my second grade from last term for the paper that I thoroughly hated and that made me decide that I would never write anything fictional again - and I got a 1.0. One point zero, or A plus in American terms (I guess). I must have done something right. Actually I really should stop with the masters thing now. It can't get any better. Especially with the two papers I am going to write this term.

And the really weird thing about this that I get these grades although I really would rather be doing something else. :ugly: Anyways. Back to sloths and Douglas Adams.

Douglas Adams! :D

Well, sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. Those things you don't give a damn about are working out just nicely, while the things you worry about incessantly are completely screwed up. Screwed up to such an extent that no amount of worrying OR not-giving-a-damn can save'em.
Looking at the "cost-reward" relationship of those two cases, I'd rather like to not give a damn more often.

BTW: I really love your blog!

Thank you! :D And it took me about five minutes to find out who you are. *ggg*

Well, I should try the not-giving-a-damn regarding finding a job, maybe it helps. And I've given up on a potential love life. I'm too much of a hermit for anything to work out in that area. :ugly:

BTW, the Adams reference occurs in a poem that I'm doing a presentation about. A rather puzzling poem, so I am pretty curious how that class is going to work out today.

Only five minutes?
That was fast! Congratulations. *grin* May I ask how you figured that out? Because if I track myself from here, I don't find that much reference to from where we originally know each other (That's a stupid sentence). Actually, none at all.

I found my first job by not giving a damn, and my second by pulling a few strings and worrying a lot. I guess, the system isn't always applicable. *smirk*

Don't even get me started on love-life. Apart from it being non-existent, it's depressing to know that even if I might sometime find someone who I could love, I'd be so fucked up, emotional and insecure, that I could just as well give up without even trying.

Could you perhaps send me that poem? It sounds really interesting, and I'm also pretty curious because I plan to study english too somewhere down the line (aka as soon as this internship is over).

Actually I wasn't too sure myself at first, but the icons gave it away. There were too many that I had seen in a different place. *gg*

I have once more decided I give up before anything really has started. :ugly:

It's on its way, as soon as I find out if I can get text out of pdf's on this computer.
