This Friday I got really lucky. I mean really, really lucky. At work, in-between my two morning meetings, I took a sneak peek at my Twitter. Imagine to my surprise when I saw this tweet from Lifehacker:
“Don’t write down what you need to buy, write down what you *don’t* need to buy to save some money and reduce clutter: lifehac.kr/wYaqaJ“
It sounded like my post How Do Not Need List Can Save You a Buck I wrote way back in January. What the hell, I thought, re-reading Lifehacker’s tweet for the third time, someone is writing about the same stuff I wrote.
I realize that nothing original is being said nowadays on the Internet. I recognize that everything was said and discussed, and presented, and stated a few thousand times. We all use each other’s ideas. We all learn from each other. But I always hope that if anyone
steals borrows something from me, at least, this person will put a different spin on my idea.
I clicked on the link to see who was this moron that so blatantly stole my idea. Looking back, I am kind of ashamed of my furious outburst.
Lifehacker, in fact, featured my January post!
Immediately I felt much better. Then I felt a little stupid that I was ready to yell at someone I don’t know. Finally, I got a huge adrenaline rush: my site was featured on Lifehacker!!!! Needless to say, Friday ended up to be a great day.
I am writing this post on adrenaline. Therefore forgive me for the overuse of exclamation marks.
