Comments

when people ask you what you do, do you believe they're actually that interested? if all your conversations go anything like that then you're wasting your time, people just see you as self indulgence, because the only person who really cares is you, so as long as you know what you do then that's all you need, everyone else will just be happy to say you're in IT, and perhaps a bit more if they actually care for all the hype! but why would they if their heart isn't in it like yours.....
