Been seeing guys cribbing about this #Friendzone thing.
Dude, it doesn’t exist. Being nice to girls doesn’t entitle you to sex. You should be glad there are girls who enjoy your friendship and want to continue that rather than bitching they won’t let you in their pants. Also, most girls don’t want to be treated like a “princess”. They want to be treated like a person… #IFeel
Came across with this fine piece of video while I was going through one of the blogs on CrowdSpring.
I haven’t been doing any big thing in a while but when you try to do, you’re bound to take as much big risks too.
I know, it seems unfair to judge a talented man more harshly when he tries to do something big, than a less talented person who’s doing something easier. But that is how it is. If you’re trying to do something that is maybe above you and you can’t quite pull off, then whereas before you only saw your gifts, now you see your failings. Risks help you see.
I have always been pushing that envelope. I have been trying my hands on some freelancing writing/naming and logo projects on CrowdSpring, and have somehow generalized that I AM NOT THAT GOOD. I ended up like hundreds of times with nothing at hand. Working on different logo designs and getting nothing in return is still quite a turn off. But I really want to test it out and accept that I’m not good enough at it and will eventually get good by learning through the failures (Obviously I should work my ass off and keep on tracking my progress for that. O.K. I know).
With every logo entry of mine-which somehow manages to not win the award-which is nothing but another ‘risk’ for me, I get to learn something and I believe I get promoted to the next level of a so called “Logo Designer”.
I’d rather choose on thanking the platform like CrowdSpring for helping the artists out by doing the great work.
Will continue making logos (and getting better at it), knowing that its way smaller the risk than those which were taken by these legends shown in video above.
Hope you like it. :)
Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian-born American actress. Max Reinhardt called her the “most beautiful woman in Europe” due to her “strikingly dark exotic looks”.
Mathematically talented, Lamarr came up with an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping, necessary for wireless communication from the pre-computer age to the present day.
Our actions, behaviors, and perceptions are often ruled by the word “should”.
These following statements ring true for me many times..
…be the perfect spouse/friend/parent
…always have an impeccably clean house
…be the best at my job
…always be productive
…never feel sad
…have it all figured out by now.
When the word “should” rules our lives, we end up feeling a lot of guilt.
The reason we feel guilty is because it’s impossible to live up to our unrealistic expectations of ourselves. We are our own worst critic.
Throughout the day, an inner dialogue
often runs in our heads that is so negative and self-critical that we would never direct these words toward anyone else. So why be so hard on
ourselves? One of the most powerful acts of self-care that we can ever do is to surrender and accept ourselves as we are in this moment.
An important aspect of surrender is learning to trust your own natural rhythms.
We all have a small, still voice within that knows what’s best for us. The trouble is we seldom listen to this voice. Instead, the “shoulds” rear their ugly heads and cause us to lead lives that are completely out of line with our core values and intuition.
So what’s the best way to access your intuition?
Tools that usually work best are yoga and meditation.
To get in touch with your intuitive side, you need to STOP. Rich German, a well known mentor says, “busyness is a form of denial.” Stop busying yourself with menial tasks that you’re only doing to avoid listening to your inner voice. Take time for stillness.
Get out of your head and into your body. Our intuition often comes to us at a physical level before we register anything on a conscious level.
This is where the term “gut feeling” comes from.
An article on the Science of Intuition in Oprah Magazine describes a study in which people were asked to play a game with four decks of cards.
Two of the decks were rigged to have higher value cards, while the other two were stacked with losers. The study showed that after seeing only ten cards, participants started to show a stress response (sweaty palms) to the bad decks.
However, they didn’t verbally report suspecting the decks were rigged until they had pulled fifty cards and could only explain exactly how the decks were stacked after eighty cards.
The moral? Listen to your body and start giving yourself permission to follow your own rhythms. Let go of the “shoulds.” Forget everything you’ve ever read about how things “should” be done. Only you know what’s best for you. Even five minutes a day of stillness can help you access your inner wisdom…
ALL THE BEST!

Until and unless you discover that money is the root of all good, you ask for your own destruction. When money ceases to become the means by which men deal with one another, then men become the tools of other men. Blood, whips and guns—or dollars. Take your choice—there is no other.
The last year has been almost as insane as the year before.
2012, you have made me love, you have broken my heart. You have taught me responsibility and independence and the perils of disorganization. You have taught me how to say goodbye and who my real friends are. You have taught me how to open up to new experiences, new people.
You have taught me how to cope with job & classes at the same time. How to dare to do what I believe in. You have taught me how to shed my coat of prejudice to accept the possibilities that lie ahead once it is gone.
2012, you have been both a terrible year and a brilliant one. You tossed me from the safety of school into the unknown of province. You made me dream about being flung in arms of the one I loved. You continued snatching me out of those very arms over and over again until this cracking heart could take it no more and it shut down in reality…only to be opened once again by a very different set of arms. You tested me over and over again and disappointed me by showing me how much I could disappoint myself. You taught me secrecy, passion, desire. You taught me comfort, contemplation, caring. You taught me how to assert myself and attain my own freedom. Taught me how important my parents are, and how delicate and human they are as well. You taught me how to be strong when in the middle of the night all I wanted to do was cry. You taught me how to accept weakness and learn from it.
Thank you 2012, for the people, for the places, for the memories.
You will be missed. Good Bye!
The greek swastika-project.
How to describe this……well.
First thing first. Its all hand drawn.
The Squid is a minoan design, combined from different jugs, and no, its not a 9th arm, its actually its beak, and on jugs, it goes around the opening. Here, it goes around Jorgos neck
Its all dots, and it took a while.
