The exception to this is people that change their usernames into similar versions or simplified versions of their current username. It's like how Frosty got rid of the numbers next to her name or ZombieNinjaPirate switched to ZNP-TBA. I can still tell who they are! And the new username sometimes has a better ring to it. It's like if you changed yours to just say "fetus" or something because everyone calls you that.

I honestly wonder why German tv is so bad. There is some decent journalism and satire, anything that depends on a few bright minds rather than a supporting system/infrastructure. But as soon as it comes to pure entertainment, things look bleak.
It can't really be the money. For crying out loud, the Danish, Norwegians, etc produce better, more modern stuff. The British are far ahead of us too. So yes, Americans outperform the rest of the world in terms of dollar input (which positively affects production value), but I don't think that's it.
A standard answer to complains like this is usually that we either murdered or expelled most talents in this country some 70 odd years ago, but does it really take that long for talent to regrow? In a country of 80 million?
There is the occasional good movie - usually idenpendent work like Toni Erdmann which got standing ovations and enthusiastic reviews at Cannes or small pics made by public television - but anything mainstream is bound to look and feel crappy and second rate. Provincial. It's frustrating.

I was in a gym yesterday, I have to say I feel proud of myself. I've been wanting to do some exercise for such a long time, but I never really had enough will to do it, now I finally feel like I am doing something. I hope my figure will be perfect in the summerDeep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

It's all a lie when people tell you it's about how hard you work. It's all a lie.
I've just been thinking about this, and I just think...how many people I have known who push themselves beyond their limit, to the level of exertion and yet they so often it doesn't really lead to anything at all. They're in the same position before, and they're just fundamentally slaving away. It's good to have discipline and a good work ethic, but it's not always enough I don't think. I don't think I want to be someone who is perpetually someone who just grinds away all of the time, and continually am left in that position..
So what difference does it make then? it's all weird. I wonder if any of it really matters at all.
Is it really just networking then? I feel like it's almost leverage in a way. Working your leverage, or what you have, or something...
But I guess at the same time, it's not about the destination either? if you're happy with where you are. I almost feel like...it's all complicated.
