All the Cool People are Sober...

I am on a deadline to get some work done for a client, so I have naturally taken a break to read some blogs and surf around cyberspace, to make absolutely SURE that I will be working to the last bitter minute to meet my deadline.

(Apparently, my procrastination cannot be blamed entirely on wine..)

And these are some gems that I discovered while "researching" on social media.

"Booze is shit and all the cool people are sober" , Lotta Dann, aka Mrs D.

And this one, buried in a blog from Kim Duke, lovely Canadian business coach. It spoke to me on lots of levels, including right now as I'm so close to finishing this pile of paperwork.

Don't Quit 
by Anonymous
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is weird with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure has turned about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seems worse,
That you must not quit.

And now lovely people, I really have to get my stuff done.

  1. I love the quote and the poem. It's when times are hard that we really find out what we're made of x

  2. I love the idea of sober peer-pressure: be sober, you'll be cool, everyone will want to be your friend! All the cool kids are (not) doing it!

    1. Yes, sober should be cool. Why is all the stupid stuff cool?

  3. A very true poem!!

  4. Oh... And here silly me thought the post is about me. Just kidding! Loved the poem. Actually the other day I was thinking that the most interesting people I've ever met are sober.
