Do you have that one friend who is pretty ignorant - well, just stupid actually - but also far too stubborn to admit that they’re wrong? Yeah, I have one.
Yesterday some friends and I were discussing a bloke who didn’t sleep for about five days straight because he was stressed out with his work, and Jem mentioned he was shit at time management.
‘No, it’s not even that, he just didn’t plan out what he was gonna do properly and ran out of time.”
When I pointed out that that is what time management means, he vehemently disagreed, so I tried to explain again “Time management is managing your time so that you get the most amount of stuff done - you know, maximum productivity - out of that amount of time. The clue is in the name.” And even so he still kept whispering ‘that’s not what time management is’ even though he was smiling sheepishly like an idiot who knows he’s wrong, he’s just way to proud to admit it. It really tickled me.

Exploring themes of life and environment in a rather tongue-in-cheek manner, designer cléon daniel manages to explore arguably familiar territory with a banana-shaped billiard table. Completed with the help of a retired carpenter, the ‘banana pool table’ incorporates a yellow felt wrap and a hardwood frame with four pockets instead of six.
“Many of my movies have strong female leads–brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a saviour”
It’s kind of ridiculous that you’re expected to get out of bed EVERY day
