“A day without laughter is a day wasted.”

Today is Friday, the day that everyone regards as being an awesome day, as it is the beginning, for most people, of the weekend, of two days of not being at the work place. It is an odd day in many respects, as whilst it may be the end of the work week for some, that also means that it is now time to undertake the various chores around the house that have accumulated throughout the work week.
I find myself feeling inspired and motivated today, which is somewhat bizarre. On Wednesday, and again yesterday, I found myself feeling very lethargic and lacking in motivation, and I do not feel as if I achieved anything. Today, despite the fact that it has rained all day, despite the fact that I have had a number of interruptions due to various things, I find myself feeling motivated and energetic, and I feel that I have completed a respectable amount of work today.
One of my interruptions today was having the NBN (National Broadband Network) connected inside the house. I wanted to test the difference, and so ran the Ookla speed test which showed a very large improvement (ADSL: 21ms ping, 5.95 Mbps DL and 0.85 Mbps UL. NBN: 4ms ping, 23.72 Mbps DL and 4.85 Mbps UL), however I wanted something more visible, so I went to YouTube to see how long a video would take to buffer. The first video that popped up was Kid President’s Pep Talk video, and it downloaded incredibly quickly, however I decided to sit and watch it. It really is a very powerful video, and I felt it worth sharing on this wet and windy Friday afternoon.
Remember, be more awesome this weekend. Be awesome to your friends, your family, your neighbours and keeping being awesome on Monday.
