Making friends

When we make new friends, how often does it happen because we said "Shall we be friends?" I imagine the process of friend-making should go something like this:

Person A: I like you. Do you want to be my friend?
Person B: Okay, let's be friends.
Person A: Hello, friend :)

But this is the oversimplified version. Really, even though we don't say it, what we mean is this:

I think I like you. Let's be friends for a while, and then if we like it we'll be friends for a bit longer until we get bored or until we stop liking each other. How's that sound?

Scary thought of the day

Today, I had a thought.
Actually, I had more than one, but I had one particularly frightening one:
I imagined that maybe one day the government would discover that I’m really really smart, and then they’d take me away from my family and send me to a faraway country where I have to speak an unusual, foreign language and learn really smart and complicated things which resemble magic when observed from a distance, but upon closer inspection look more like gibberish. And they’d make me sit through hours and hours of talking by people who seem to know a great deal about things that aren't particularly interesting to me, but are somehow supposed to be really important, and then they’d test me every week just to see if I could keep up, and if I understand all of the talking. 
Oh no! It’s already happening! Aaah!

Why I haven't finished my work yet.

Here I am in my room, trying to get work done since I got up at noon. It’s now midnight, so it’s been 12 hours, and one might expect that I would have gotten some solid work done. That would be true, if only I wasn’t so distracted and uninterested in the work I’m supposed to get done.

It’s a presentation that I must do for English, and after much deliberating and half watched videos on TED, I finally decided that I’ll talk about Google’s self-driving car. Once I’d decided on the topic, I then went on to make the PowerPoint presentation. Probably about an hour later, I’d finished writing the title: “Google’s self-driving car”.

Winnie the Pooh

Current location
My room, Nice.
Now listening to

Other activities
Spiderman's girlfriend
I just finished watching Winnie the Pooh, which came out earlier this year. It’s was splendid - I enjoyed it very much, and it gave me quite the rumbly in my tumbly.
As the movie was starting off, everything looked very life-like. The wooden door, the furniture, the floor. So detailed, so realistic. Then I realised: it was all real! I groaned thinking, 'is this a live action movie?' Immediately a thousand and one renditions of a live action Pooh Bear started popping up in my upstairs circus.
