That. Is where i am trying to be. (may be a bit of work to do tho)


“Don’t try and understand it”

Cool! Im on the right lines then because after a life of trying, I’ve recently discovered the lack of importance & point to understanding it. 😎

I recently came to the realisation that - Perhaps it can not be understood.

Now, I’m just feeling the awe of it. 🫶

The moment money was no longer free to borrow, the moment all houses of cards fell.
JP Morgan/Chase, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America will be fine. Smaller banks that have clients in very volatile industries (crypto) or that produce products not helpful to society (the 69th "social media app", machine learning algorithms with bullshit uses no one asked for) are the ones at risk
Maybe… don’t underestimate the trickle down effect though. A long standing Swiss bank just crashed yesterday 🤷‍♀️

Credit Suisse. I'm wondering how related that is to the Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank collapses in the US.
Interestingly, there's this reddit thread from 6 months ago detailing the warning signs for Credit Suisse. Their involvement with Archegos was their death sentence.
Unfortunately, no bank is "too big to fail" when its management is crap and doesn't think long-term or doesn't diversify enough. Poor management and shitty clients will cause the house of cards to fall. The fall of these 3 banks has been very interesting to see play out.
JP Morgan Chase, BofA, and Wells Fargo should be mostly fine. Their management is, for the most part, competent, and they shouldn't get anywhere near SVB/Signature/Credit Suisse.

Anything worth it’s salt

wether that be a house, a parcel a car or a laptop.

money is going to get worth less, products retain their value. At the very least longer
We shall see what happens. People tell me that customer service will become obsolete but I think most people yearn for human interaction, communication. No matter how isolated you may have come across. We are social beings.

Anyway, I am thinking of this business idea to create a tool where old trance producers and house producers recreate their old tracks authenticate because I am sure people would want to learn how they made tracks in the golden period of trance but would people be willing to pay for such a service?

Tip: don’t focus on trance and house alone, too small of a (hobby) market

Valid point - R&B and Hip Hop would be my choice as well. Maybe not even music but other things as well. Forgotten skills/knowledge/techniques as well.

Like trying to recreate something from the past that sounds or feels and looks like what it was in the past would be an amazing skill to see if they could recreate it.

Or how about creating an AI website that pre fill a text of code and allows users to fix up any errors or they can change using that programming code or language? Also, Piano music transcription services: Offer transcription services for piano music, including transcribing sheet music from recordings or creating sheet music from original compositions. Converting sheet music into notes as well or having a program that convert sheet music into lyrics as well.

I think I may have actually reached the point, where I’m no longer gonna concern myself with whether oneself is the same, better, or worse than other people. It woukd certainly be a breath of fresh air to walk this earth without the heavy chains of comparing oneself to others or thinking I am either superior or inferior to everyone i come accross. With any luck, this should stop me worrying what others think of me (which has been one of the biggest burdens of my life). Its nice to just see yourself as being part of the air.

so that was a bit of a shit weekend..

A friend of ours who helps out with the kids nearly drowned, is currently suffering from fatigue and other hypothermia symptoms (and possible survivors- guilt)

And I had to pull her friend out of the ocean who actually drowned and despite CPR from me and the ambulance was just declared dead in the hospital.


Splendid..

Feeling quite beat up after a rough couple of days. Under a lot of pressure at the moment, they expect of me to give 100%, full-time on the project for another 5-6 weeks (with heavily increased amount of work), but also use my own free time to learn shit I never did in a small amount of time to impress a client that wasn't even landed...or else.

Honestly I think this is the first time I've considered leaving. I don't mind either of these two things, and I'm not one to back down from a challenge, but I got like 2 hours of free time per day, and it's after work, when I'm just done and like a zombie. So the only thing is pause my life for a month or so for something that's not paid or motivating. I think I love myself more than the company to do that.

I'm usually not super proud of the nights where I stay up way too late on my phone, but last night I saw a bunch of local pictures, then went outside and saw it for myself:

IMG_0193.jpeg


This is a 3 second exposure from my iPhone, on which I later enchanced the contrast and colour saturation, but even to my naked eye it was an awesome sight. I'd never properly seen them before; it was like seeing giant ghostly candle flames, or a campfire made of plasma splayed across the whole sky. I could see them moving - no wonder the ancients thought there were spirits dancing up there.

The Sun's reaching the peak of its eleven year activity cycle, so if you live far enough north (or south) you'll probably get a lot more chances to see them over the next few years.

:sick: I think I am going to be sick. Soon we will have real life sex dolls.

This is the eventual conclusion of male-female relationships. There's A LOT of money to be made from single, lonely men.

edit: I can see a lot of men disregarding relationships with women and, instead of spending on dates/travel/engagement rings, they will get a hyperrealistic sex doll.

It's quite annoying where they expect someone to be this perfect image of their mother or what they dreamt about. It's quite sad that there is money to be made from that when they could benefit from seeking help.
