Feeling qualified.

I do not like to apply for jobs unless I feel reasonably qualified. I also try to be brutally honest to myself.

Now that is a recipe for disaster if I ever saw one. Especially since I want to move out of sales - my bread and butter role of the last few years. Most of my employment life.

I Just applied for a position of Junior Web Developer. I have been making websites, maintaining and updating them for years, but I really had to think before I decided that I am qualified to apply for such a role.

Truth matters

The truth waits for nobody. It does not [url=/blogs/seraphim/truth-lies]begin in lies[/url], nor does it need to be sugar coated in lies. Truth is the absense of Lies. No matter what House says. If it is relative, it is not a truth but an opinion.

Some people lie to others for a multitude of reasons. Some which sound good, others which do not. But why do people lie to themselves?

If you cannot be truthful to yourself, can you be truthful to others?

Philosophy, Intellect and the freedom to fail?

I hold a philosophy that others have lambasted me for - a person is allowed to fail.

A person does not have to be the best, or even succeed. Taken to its logical limit, A person does not even have to participate. This is their right. People are allowed to fail. This may not lead to money, success, fame or anything else, but not everything is about that.

Using this philosophy, what is a capable person? Someone who is smart, can do things, or someone who actually does things? I would argue the latter.

It's the same with intellect - someone who is "smart" but does nothing is not as smart as another who is "less intellectual" but actually acts or achieves something.

Where am I going with this? Nowhere. It's just a blog post.

In Soviet Russia, the Internet Blogs YOU!

Salaam all

I'm say, this is an asspishus day. We all know what day it is...

"Suspicious? What day is it?"

A glorious day for all the proud members of The Revival...

"what day is it? What month?"

It's the day people were liberated from their boring lives with blogs! What do we want?

...

Well you supposed to shout "blogs"!

Anyway, after all that rambling, just to let y'all know, every single member has been granted his or her own blog. To talk about nothing. in. Just like everyone else does and feels special doing it.

Assalamu Alaikum, Welcome, Aloha, Wilkommen and whatever else.

Assalamu Alaikum

No, you are not lost. This is the NEW home of The Revival. No, not the web address, but the new look. The emperor has got some funky NEEEW clothes!

Yes the site seems a little bare at the moment, but that should be sorted out in little to no time. When we put all the old stuff back onto this system.

To go to the old style homepage with the fancy stuff called "content" click here. For forums, click on the buttons above. or here.
