Friend Flow Chart


friend flow chart

Some explanation – for the sake of simplicity, i didn’t include everyone I know, just those that are friends and are likely to see this =) The “…” signifies various multitudes of people at uni in my course. The greyed out ones in italics were those people who provided key contacts, but have since lost contact.

And the grey dotted border signifies the met-in-high-school/uni divide. With the exception of Annie inside the line, and conversely work people, there’s a bit of a generic rule that applies to this divide…

(if I’ve missed you… >.>)

Personality thing

So I see a new post from Jack this morning, and it’s one of those things I thought Jack would never do, but I gladly lap up. It’s an intriguing one.

“Johari” – It’s like a personality matrix, with a bunch of characteristics. I’ve picked 6 personality traits I think are some of my strongest, and now it’s your turn – you guys pick 5 or 6 things you think about me (e.g. am I cheerful, proud, etc) and we find out how much my perceptions of myself match with those of my friends.

Give it a shot, for me =) (and no peeking. that’d be unfair.)
This is pretty much designed to go well (enough) as the personality traits are by and large positive, but if I’m feeling particularly curious, I might have a go at the “Nohari”, which is a negative take on the Johari personality options.


Memory Meme Madness

Purloining memes is inevitable; it’s something about their nature – well, it really is their nature – that others will steal the meme and put it on their blog in an spectacular display of unimagination/uncreativity. But they’re fun.

So stealing from elsewhere, the following meme continues. And it feels oddly appropriate to me to be talking about this kind of stuff, what with end-of-an-era type stuff happening to me. Enough blather, the meme:

Everyone who reads this blog who happens to also know me (rather than the usual net stumbler), post a memory you have of you, with me, a moment. it could be anything from the utterly humiliating to the higest of highs. see the theory is that different things are significant to different people, what you remember may not be something that i’d recall. so comment away, anonymously if you so wish, that could be part of the test! see if i remember your memory!

So let’s get to it folks =) What memory do you have of me?
