We see @arf_22’s life in pie… arfysdreams:

In terms of control
I’d say I have the most control over my friends/family/religion
However time at the moment is so tight that they are seeing less and less of me. 
As you can see dissertation and documentary are my life at the moment and are eating up my time the most, something I don’t have much control over as I got to do it well pass my degree!
(Not sure I’ve done this right but hey I thought I’d try do the homework for once as I’ve been pretty crap with spark and mettle homework this term too!) x

Fran's Life Map Realisations...


Looking back on my life map, I realise how incredibly lucky I’ve been this year in snagging the job of the century. Therefore the bits in my map which focused on career are a bit hard to do now. I have chosen to have a look at the personal life side of things… I said when making my life map how…


James not utterly decided how he makes a decision… 


ummmm… how do i make a decision… ummmmm

….tricky one….

….i am very systematic, thats the engineer in me. small decision steps, never skip a step. take each step as i go. if i skip a step i make a wrong decision. 

I know i have made a good decision when it comes out with a successful outcome!!!its the destination not the journey - well sometimes…

this is a very tricky one for me. tricky.


James sets some goals… jamesmichaelwinfield:

1. There is a course that the world bank does http://einstitute.worldbank.org/ei/course/low-carbon-development

2. Get an internship to c if it was what i want to do, the right direction

3. start being a bit more careful with my money, be more like Fran and start my pension (legend).

4. Increase my will power by training for the Edinburgh half marathon

5. cook nice food. practise. practise. practise. EAT

Coco and revitalising


When I think of a work place I think of the British Library, it’s just ideal because you’re able to immerse yourself in whatever you’re doing, there’s no distractions. Also the availability of coffee is pretty awesome. I doubt I’ll end up working there, but I’d be able to work as hard provided…

Bryony is thinking about thinking


If I were to place a living human brain in a tank with all the necessary elements to keep it alive, would it think? What if I were to attach eyes and ears and other sensory organs or even simply mimic the input of these sensory organs by stimulating it with tiny electrodes - would it think?…
