Day 286 – The insidious ‘Whatever’, and further irony.

I got a dose of conscience the other day form a friend of mine.

I mentioned how I was incentivising my goals for the previous month with a videogame reward.  *If I got all these goals done by the end of the month, I would buy this particular game.

I was grilled over, and made aware of, just how crummy that statement sounds.  I basically threw my sense of accountability under the bus for some instant gratification.

The irony of ironies is that the game doesn’t work on my PC…
