This is a picture of icons I have printed on paper and cut out with scissors. It might not look pretty, but it IS old school. It is the kind of thing I did back in kindergarten. Do you wonder why I did this now? Ask about that or other things in the comments below. I will answer within 47 hours.

For some time now I have dreamt of writing av book. So why is it I find myself having started making an app instead? What can I say? I don´t really know why yet. Join me in making this app and maybe after a while you will understand why it is worth doing?

Maybe I Don´t Know WHY, But I Do Know What

If we succeed in making a useful app, I know WHAT we will have created together. A way to make it easier to practice mingle techniques, alone. I will explain later why it is beneficial for you to practice mingle techniques alone. Let me just say this.

A Memory of Light

This is not a picture of “A Memory of Light” by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson

A Memory of Light

A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson was a good read. Actually I listened to it on audio and that made the book a great enjoyment. 42 hours of pleasure while working out, cleaning the house and making the mingle app. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading are acting out the different characters in way so I recognize the characters for who they are. If you have not read the 13 former books in the Wheel of Time Series, you can still listen to this book and enjoy Sanderson´s storytelling. It is a story of an approaching Apocalypse, awaited and expected. Set within Jordan´s beautiful and horrible universe. Kramer and Reading will help you keep the characters apart and Sanderson´s storyline gives you a clear path to the end. If you observe your own daily life with an open mind you will recognize much of what is happening in the book.

If you have introverted thraits, do you benefit from “arming” yourself with preparation before going into the mingle “war”?

Thursday I will meet a group of hand picked individuals who have reached a decision. A deliberate decision to practice mingling weekly. They wish to exercise their mingle technique to improve it. Why? Let me ask you this first. Last time you walked into a room crowded with strangers did you think something along the lines of “Geez! Who are all these People?!” Let me ask you one more question. Do you think you would have felt better if you had exercised your mingle technique before throwing yourself into the mingle “war”? If you are the type who like to be prepared, read on!
