    The Use of Astrology - Observing a Cyclical Relationship System

    I dunno, in of itself it just kind of comes off like general ambiguous advice. If it makes people's lives better, then that's great, but you could apply any of the horoscopes to your day to improve your life by assuming that. In of themselves their original purpose could be occupied by almost any other system, since it has no true predictive power to differentiate itself from other forms of advice.

    If it makes one's life better, then I suppose that's a "use", but in that sense there are many other things that could serve a similar purpose, such as using Meyer's-Briggs personality archetypes to plan how you should react to certain things. It's "use" in this sense is not unique.

    Top 10 List #2: Guys from Pokemon

    I would have been upset if Blaine or Lance wasn't on there, but I'm glad I saw them! Good list overall! Although you're missing Archie (Team Aqua Leader), which would have then made the list complete.

    Hey, it's not that ridiculous. People and love can cause the craziest of circumstances. What would be ridiculous is if you were never able to move forward.

    The Use of Astrology - Observing a Cyclical Relationship System

    "Astrology may be useless in its common sense"

    How awesome that you can find so much use out of its model. Though it's interesting to then tarnish its common application. While I don't go reading horoscopes or anything, I think psychics, astrology, etc all have quite a use.

    It gives people perspective.

    Think about it. A woman reads that their coworkers will be giving them something special today. She dresses nicely, and is more aware of her coworkers that day. She might even notice things about them too, which she likely wouldn't have on the autopilot sleepiness full-time employees often find themselves. She was more aware about something different.

    It might not predict the next lover, but she might notice someone that would've been just another stranger otherwise. Those little moments could change the tide of her life.

    I used to viciously criticize astrology, The Secret, and I'm still adverse about the super-preachy self-help section. By now, I've realized that the tools people use to navigate a hazy and complicated life are exactly that: a set of tools. They'll tweak and tinker. They'll fail. They'll learn to let go. They'll try again. Cyclical.

    Just because it isn't useful to you, doesn't mean it isn't useful.

    As for the model, quite an elaborate explanation. I'll keep chewing on it. :D Thanks for diving deep!

    I just wanted to say congratulations. To feel as if you're on the right path, despite all the twists and turns, is a wonderful feeling.

    Keep at it, stargazer.

    I know, I'm aware of how ridiculous it sounds. I mean, I just met her lol. But that's definitely my plan. Just meeting up with her, being friends and letting things go with the flow.

    Writing actually helped me clear my mind somehow. Idk sorry if I'm incomprehensible its 3 am lol so im tired XD

    Low paying jobs are going to suck to some degree. I hated all my jobs (besides one) for weeks to months of time before I came fully around to them. If you stick with it and get past the stressful/confusing parts you'll know what you're doing and you'll develop your own rhythm.

    Okay so not trying to be insensitive but like you just met this girl. Even if she has a few interests and seems wonderful you haven't had any substantial time to actually know if it would work out. I can understand that it was exciting but it just seems like you think it would be a 100% sure thing if your friend never told you his feelings for the girl. Just be you and become friends with her first. Ultimately she'll pick who she wants if she wants either of you. All is fair in love and war

    I don't know how to deal with this

    Actually no. I've already done that, haha. I wouldn't ever feel anger for him. Nor hate him. There's nothing that he's done which would make me feel like blaming him. As a result, I've already told him that I was feeling this way about the situation. I am sitting inside his room right now and I made him read this blog entry a while ago. He probably interpreted it incorrectly to be frank. But there's nothing to worry, we've already made plans to have our 2-4 AM extremely late night chats and make everything clear haha.

    As for the situation itself, writing about it helped me out quite a bit surprisingly! I just don't feel as...well, disappointed anymore. I feel really good. I mean, I don't know, I just can't let things go sour between me, my friend and that girl just over something that "may" make me feel jealous/upset/youknowhwatImean in the future. I can't really be sure unless I just go ahead and see what happens for myself. And I'll do exactly that. I'll see how things turn out and face the situations as they come. But one thing is certain, I won't ever despise my friend or let anything turn our friendship sour. Because I treasure it. Quite a lot.

    What about her? Well, when I meet her and talk to her a bit I'll let her know about this situation as well. But I definitely don't ever plan to come between her and my friend if that's how it turns out. My friend is a total sweetheart and losing him is the last thing I'd want. So yeah. Fate, if it exists, will decide what happens and I'm ready to accept things.

    This is going to be a true test of your friendship because you're going to want to be incredibly upset at your friend for doing what feels like taking away this opportunity from you. You're probably gonna want to hate him for awhile, and that's okay. But if you care about your relationship with him, don't let it stunt growth between you two.

    This is a girl that you talked to for just awhile, and I understand it was an amazing experience for you. You actually probably won't comprehend how happy I am for you that you met someone like that, regardless of the circumstance. But if you care about your friendship, you won't let it come between you. In fact when you've cooled down you might even talk to him about it so at least he KNOWS how you feel so it's not pent up anger and jealousy. That's not healthy for anyone.

    love you derodero.

    That really sucks man... I do really hope it works out for you and your friendship.

    Though I do have to recommend you to tell her you have interest in her. If you never use your chance, it could haunt you for years if not life. But do not try to tear them apart, as much as you may want too.

    Or just go fancy and buy Black N' Reds, those were the best darn notebooks. I buy them every semester for classes.

    I do have this problem on buying new moleskins before I ever finish the previous one, though, so I can relate in a way. x_O

    Sleep is the most brilliant idea. Rest and repair.

    Potential relationships, and the anticipated excitement and wonder that can come from them, can be some of the greatest disappointments. I tend to read some books about life whenever I was struck down by a gal (Randy Pausch's "The Last Lecture" comes to mind).

    You never know what's coming for ya, champ. That's cliche, but it's true. Focus on you (I wouldn't just try to avoid it). Writing this was a great step.

    There's this highway to life, and people will turn on your road or take the next exit constantly. What matters is how you respond, how you learn to cope. You can feel helpless and sad and frustrated, that's another part of you with applicable strengths in its own right. Use it.

    All the best, derozio.

    Agreed. I assume she's only still employed because she had like three weeks left at the time of the incident and they didn't think it worth going through that whole process.

    The elders wear an attitude of bare-minimum effort - it seems to me they're only there to collect and are obstructive of change (and also the chores you mentioned) because apparently their parents never told them that **** sucks, deal with it.

    An adult having a public temper tantrum at their place of employment in front of clients is just a pitiful embarrassment, to say the least. Why is she employed, again?

    Workplace drama: the bane of productivity.

    And also unavoidable. The only way to "avoid" it is to get lucky and go to a place with low drama.

YOU CAN'T FIND A DEAL LIKE THIS IN THIS FRIGGIN TOWN). Half of the notebooks I use in that box are used for story-writing or just plain scribbling. I do end up finishing those stories throughout the year. I'm glad someone does the same thing I do. My mom is going crazy with my two totes of notebooks with stories. I refuse to throw them out.

    Binders are a great way to store everything, and it's even better if it's 1 1/2 and with POCKET DIVIDERS. Organization at its finest. yay!
    I have the same problem with not throwing out my notebooks. I have stuff that's over ten years old sitting in my large storage bin/bedside table. There's no need to keep them anymore because it's all old and terrible, but I can't stomach the thought of getting rid of them either. I've thrown out maybe 1 or 2 notebooks that absolutely could not be salvaged, but besides that, I'm still hoarding them. -_-;

    I didn't get pocket dividers, just basic ones. Wasn't willing to spend a bunch of money on something nice if it wasn't going to work. If it does, I'll probably upgrade to a fancier binder setup, haha.
