Re: Our view of the world

On my phone I have 1000+ photos that I've seen on the Internet with an interesting caption or something on it, and I think it might be useful one day. This trait is applied to everything, I never throw things away it seems wasteful, even if I've destroyed something I'll try to find another use for i...

Travel Mugs (Tervis)

I was drinking tea today, whilst burning myself, and a friend suggested I get a tervis cup. Has anyone used one or know any good brands that I could get as a better or more available alternative since tervis is based in America.

Merlin has been cancelled

I've just read that the bbc has cancelled merlin just as it was getting good, it's a bit of an anticlimax, no holy holy grail, no purple hat for merlin, and no knights that say ni…that's something else! Anyway what did everyone think of it as a programme?

Re: Poor judge of character

I thought he was one of my closet friends and he's been friendly for years but recently I noticed that he's selfish and demanding and will do anything to benefit himself. I think it's more the shock than anything that a trait like that can go unnoticed when I've been such good friends with him

Poor judge of character

One of my friends, we'll call him Fred, has, of late, been relying heavily on me for favours; books, pens, arranging meetings, etc. I've known Fred for six years and we've got on resonantly well. This summer I went to visit Fred and his family and I noticed that he manipulates people and is incredib...

Re: Over complicating tasks

Also I got my report today and I got told that I make things to difficult by over thinking and asking too many questions, which leads to me making a really long winded way of doing something simple!

Re: MEMORY

I'm the opposite to you, I remember faces but not the name that applies to them, which has led to some awkward situations! My short term memory is atrocious and so ill do something ten times before I complete it since I can't remember the next step. Also I'll put my phone down, sit on it, and ask wh...

Re: Speed

I find it hard to be heard in a conversation, either I'm blanked or ill repeat myself five times and then give up because people say 'what' over and over, but then they'll say that I don't speak up but I think I'm speaking very loudly. I tend to stumble on words or forget what I'm saying and then ge...

The world has been scarred!

I'm just back from my first driving lesson, it's quite a tiring experience! I made one person swerve almost drove into 3 signs when the instructor said move away, I thought he meant the oncoming traffic! I also mounted the kerb doing a manoeuvre I've done loads in car park, I have done some practice...
