Today was probably the most chill day I've had in a long while. We had family friends coming over from Canada and the way my parents explained it to me I believed that I was gonna be spending my whole day with them so I had basically cleared out my whole schedule, turns out I wasn't going to meet them until deep in the afternoon so I just spent the morning chilling, reading, playing some vain and doing a little homework.

The family friends include a kid around my age and it was kinda crazy the shit you realise that some people are just next level. Like a few hours into conversation he drops that he went to Harvard summer school the year before, this kid was 15 and doing college level courses - sure he was doing media studies but that's still mad impressive I think. 

Perhaps that's the secret - the "I think" part, having cool shit to say on your CV that literally means nothing but sounds really impressive. He talked about how kids in his school create "charities" with a website but only raise about 50 quid for, but when they put it on the CV it looks mad impressive. I think what happens is that you can't self-inflate yourself to yourself. You know the truth about yourself but not about others. 

I have this one friend who says that he created a physics club at our school and successfully runs it - he never started it just had a cool idea. (I'm such a gimp that physics clubs are cool smh) he also says he's personal assistant to a ground-breaking ophthalmic surgeon - thing is the surgeon is his dad and he helped him set up gmail on his phone. 

I think that's my annoyance, I decided a while ago that CVs were meant to be brutally honest with little rhetoric, but until I've become president of the universe rhetoric always beats the truth and perhaps I will have to join them to beat them.

There is that quote from someone like Tai Lopez which is "don't mud-wrestle a pig because they enjoy it" I'm sure it has no significance to what I just said but I have things to do so enjoy what little drivel I have done.
