urban dictionary--fwibble + ambition

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fwibble

An exhausted and/or frustrated sigh; origin: onomotopoeic (a deflating of the chest through loosely connected lips; not to be confused with the much more upbeat raspberry)


http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=ambition


1. The need to let others know how self-important one is.
That kid's got a lot of ambition. Keep your distance unless you want to hear about his latest project for three hours.


This journal is occasionally filled with ambition. =/

Fwibble.

though the more I think about it, it's only VERY loosely onomotopaeic at best (in a sort of stylized way--maybe--and maybe I'm just imagining it). Eh.

the etymology of ambition is a rather cynical one as well, I think.

"ambitio, literally, act of soliciting for votes, from ambire"

lol That's not how I think of "ambition" but there it is. hurm

My ambition is to write an LJ entry for every day. So far, I am not successful, but I have the ambition! On Tuesday, I'll probably post a weekend plus Monday recap, which will be almost good enough. So finite the time and energy available, at least to my personal access. . .

best of luck :)

I've been trying not to give myself goals for anything lately because work is taking that much of my time. soon it will be back to "normal procastinative hellish" instead of "LATE! LATE! FUCK!".
