Weekend learning's

Tuesday, 20 September 2011
Beautiful creatives, a happy weekend on the dance floors in Cape Town.
This weekend I went to the Loerie awards in Cape Town. Interbrand Sampson was nominated for two of the jobs I did. No, I did not win, but I won in other ways. I learnt you do not have to win an award to win in life. Losers justification perhaps, but an award wouldn’t have made it that much better. This is what I learned.
  • My Cellini bag (new) fits a lot more in it than previously thought.
  • The people I hang out with in a working environment are just as nuts as me. We spent a good 30 minutes discussing the colour of my bag *being Coral, and how it would taste. Wrapping it in plastic added another dimension to the flavour. (like I said; nuts)
  • I am not really into the whole bus shuttle thing. Taxi’s are the way to go.
  • The apartments at Cape Quarter are to die for! Thanks guys for letting me have the VIP room ;)
  • I have people in my life who I am so close with, it is only natural to call them family. In fact, sometimes ‘sister’ is even a lesser friendship than what we have. Two peas in a pod.
  • I love old school lifts with big buttons and a trelly door you have to manually close before they move, I want one in my house. Vintage awesome!
  • Shocking news just reminds me how much I love my family, death can be cruel in her timing.
  • Some people will do anything to get into the circle, even doing things morally wrong. I do not like these people.
  • When the weather is bad there is nothing better than a blankie, a strange reality omnibus and a packet of Big Corn Bites with a wonderful friend.
  • Only David Hasselhoff could pull off strangely thin legs and sequin jacket ensemble. And I still like the Baywatch theme song.
  • Meeting a little work community where the people are cool and friendly reminds me of my old job. I miss that office family... This will change things.
  • I still hate dancing in a circle but for a birthday ill whip it!
  • Saying goodbye to a city I love gets harder and harder.
  • Lost luggage really is painful. Can you not use the words “misplaced” and “if we find your bag”. Panic attack stuff!
  • The people who want to stay in your life will always find a way.
  • Loeies and Cape Town, till we meet again...

PS. Mamihlapinatapai- refers to "a look shared by two people, each wishing that the other will offer something that they both desire but are unwilling to do."

I am a pea without a pod in the dust bowl.

DO you see this point "The people who want to stay in your life will always find a way" as a good thing or a bad thing ? .

Yes, I believe that the people who matter will make the effort, the rest are null and void. xoxo

I agree the people that do matter will make the effort, but the meaning of which rests in whether or not they matter to you. Without that all their efforts become futile.
