I believe attending conferences must be difficult for introverted people. The difficult part is not sitting through the whole session trying to figure out if it’s worth it but enduring the long lunch breaks and coffee breaks. During those breaks I often feel like I’m surrounded by CEO’s and COO’s all around me. Everyone of them sounds confident and looks like what the hell they are talking about. In the last two conferences some how I managed without much awkwardness but still felt uneasy and out of place few times.
But in today’s conference I felt very easy. Seems like most of them are tuned into something else but just there to figure out if it’s worth it. I think the reason might be that the attendees are invited and it’s a free conference. Any body with money can attend a paid conference and in my brief experience I found there are so many corporate types come to paid conferences to “network” than to learn.
This morning, for a brief moment I thought I grew up a bit but that proudness last only a few minutes until I got the above thought that it’s not me but the crowd around me that made me at ease.
I thought, I knew, how the credit card interest calculation works until today. My understaning was that I need to pay the interest for any balance I owe after the due date, but I was wrong. This is how it works atleast for the RBC Visa.
January 2012 – Spent $1000 on RBC Visa
February 15 2012 – Due Date. I paid $995
What amount do I need pay the interest for? $5? No. Interest is calculated for $1000 from the date of purchase. Isn’t it sneaky? I decided not to touch the Credit Card any more. Unless absolutely necessary like for renting a car.
I’m not sure what they mean when people write/talk about true love. I came across this article that seems to define true love and its symptoms.
There are days when you don’t feel like attending parties, but because of unique situations, you find yourself in the middle of one. These are times when you appreciate a lively person otherwise known as the “life of the party.” These people are like inspired performers who can read their audience and who actually enjoy entertaining people. Their jokes and comments are never cruel or unkind which is why people find them really funny. Most of them are witty and smart so they can instantly concoct antics for good laughs. They sometimes use parody to turn a situation into something funny like current events or popular happenings. These people are considered life of the party because they are fun, charming and give out such positive vibes. They love to have fun and be happy. When you are in the company of one, you forget your initial reluctance about coming to the party and actually start to enjoy yourself.
Is world a good place? Can any reasonable person say it depends on the individual.
If it was designed by a supreme being, that power can’t be called as God. Only an evil mind with no compassion can design a system in this way.
Its brilliant, the system is designed to be in equilibrium all the time, but how. By the struggle for survival. Giving birth is easy but only the toughest one can survive, whether its a lion or deer. If an individual is weak it has to die cruelly. An ongoing battle for survival is supposed to keep the system in equilibrium. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Think about a world where only two healthy animals can create an offspring. Wouldn’t that be wonderful when there is no fight for survival but we celebrate dearly the birth of new life?
