Friends want you to adopt their beliefs. Although you want to fit in, you disagree with their views. You want something more extraordinary and exciting for yourself. Pursuing an advanced degree or travelling abroad is the kind of thing that suits an adventurer like you. A financial shortage isn't as bad as it sounds. Instead of treating your bank account as a liability, act like it's a creative challenge. Becoming more resourceful will be a valuable skill that lasts a lifetime.You'll be thrust into the spotlight for work. Trying to do some damage control for your employer will be challenging. When in doubt, it's best to be honest. Taking responsibility for a problem and asking for forgiveness is better than assuming a defiant tone. Beware of teasing someone about their plans. Raining on a person's parade will undermine your relationship. Nobody likes being told their ideas are silly or naive. Keep your scepticism to yourself and offer encouragement instead.
I Am Looking For
Someone possibly with similar professional or leisure interests, but above all a well developed sense of humour and relaxed outlook.
Management clinician working in higher education, but with responsibilities and interests across all schools in the institution. I have a wide range of interests outside work and these include eating and drinking, interesting conversation, classical music, opera, visual and performing arts, outdoor pursuits as well as indoor ones, swimming and walking and cycling (in fair weather only)
