The Scratch Cards

I believe it is in my destiny to win big money. Somehow. Somewhere. Sometime. I expect to win this large amount that will allow me to fulfill my two basic wants at the moment, a car and a MacBook Pro.

To those of you who will respond, get a job! I can tell you that as I'm in my final year of university, that would be foolish. And silly. Plus, quite frankly, I haven't got the time.

However, I do think it's a little strange to expect to win money, yet I just think I will. Therefore, I seem to be buying scratch cards on the odd occasion and I recently had a big win. I won £1.

I never liked scratch cards. They always struck me as cheap and tacky. The novelty value of scratching off the weird protective layer soon comes off, if you pardon the pun. Also, it always feels like being the taboo, dirty product for a gambler to buy. It strikes me as being the equivalent of a drinker going into a Sainsburys and leaving with a bottle of their own vodka.

Yet, I find myself buying these very things. Maybe it's time I re-started playing the lottery?

The Positive Thought

So, my idea to follow Danny Wallace in his Yes Man philosophy was a relative success. I definetly did more things and got up to new adventures, however, I was merely copying an idea that has already been done. Though, would I say yes more in the future? Without doubt.

After a night out on Wednesday, I came up with an idea that I think can surely lead me to being a more positive person. Essentially, from Monday onwards, for a period of one week, I will attempt to not utter one negative comment.

Sure, it's ambitious. Will it be possible? Quite possibly not but one can only try.

Why do I feel I have to be more positive? Well, I've been writing in my graduate job applications that I am a positive, people person so to prove I'm not lying, I'm going to have to be positive.

Wish me luck.
