Life is short

Do not take for granted that the people you love will always be there for you. In fact, NOW is the best time to show your family and friends how much you love and care for them. NOT when you have graduated, or joined a multi-national company, or climbed the corporate ladder, or after you have gotten the promotion.

A personal entry that doesn’t withhold on anything. I have a personal weblog and I have been through a couple of deaths in my close family, but I could never get myself to write about them. Maybe it has something to do with my character, but personally I feel that if I really want to write on a personal note, I should be able to write about anything.

Whatever you do, don’t be a needy writer

If you don’t stay cool, you’ll get nothing from the feedback. You’ll be so worried about whether you’re good enough that you’ll interpret every hesitation and every trace of red ink as some huge disaster. Any positives that come your way will drown in your stinky sea of self pity.

This post words really well how I feel, it is very hard to take criticism. You must have a thick skin, especially when your work is out there for anyone to criticize, which increases the chances of receiving non-constructive critique. The best critiques are constructive and help you better yourself.

Panspermia

Deep in the oceans, far away in some ancient forest where even the sunlight rarely penetrates, what lurks in the back of beyond or just too small for us to see?

I never heard of this word before, I do know about the theory that this word represents.

One of my goals is to expand my word treasure. I don’t know of others who speak more then three languages but the fact that I speak 4 languages regularly, really makes it harder for me to be perfect at one language. My mind is full of words and the grammar between each language is completely different.

While I like writing in English best, I’m not willing to let go of the other languages just to be perfect at English.

Do you write your weblog in your native language or in a second language?
