This has been an important goal for me, especially since one of my sisters has been going through extremely tough times the last six months. I’m happy to say that I’ve improved considerably, to the point where I feel confident that I will keep this up.
What made this so? First of all, moving out about a year ago (obviously) lessened the tension between me and my sisters, and we never argue any more. Secondly, I help whenever I can if asked, and generally try do be friendly and do stuff that I know makes them happy, rather than bitching. I can still improve somewhat, i.e. when it comes to calling them up for a chat every now and then, but that shouldn’t pose a problem.
This is the most funky-cool music I’ve found in a long time. Strictly not pure electronic music, but an excellent blend of electronic-rock-funk, or something like that.
The band is named Infadels (yeah, I know, weird), and their album is named We Are Not The Infadels (yeah, I know, even weirder).
Highly, highly recommended. I especially dig “Love Like Semtex” and “Murder That Sound”. Check them out.
This is just too general a goal for me to be able to pay much attention to it now. I’m pretty proactive with work now, but not at all in some other areas where I want to be more proactive. I’m “giving this up” until I have more time to identify specific areas where I need to improve, and then focus on those.
