My new working situation is proving quite interesting. We sit in academics with students and work in unison with them. One of today’s tasks was to read two “life lesson” stories and then write down five pieces of wisdom that you would pass on to those after you. I began wondering if I was actually one of the students because these assignments seem relevant to everyone. Life is school, no?
By February 16th of 2011 there were more than 156 million public blogs on the internet. I’m not expecting to change the world. This blog has been a lesson in self-discipline. I could have called it http://www.mytwocents.com but some ass-wipe had already turned that awesome domain name into yet another useless portal site that does nothing but take up space while holding a great name hostage. Uncreative assholes do that. That is not bitterness, that is fact. If you are one of those people then shame on you. You are better than that!!!
Here are the five gems that I leave behind for anyone stumbling upon this blog.
1. Love, above all, is the most important.
2. Always make communication a priority.
3. Focus on one thing. Too many directions will divide your power and nothing will happen. Coffee and drugs may make it seem like you are doing something but all you are really doing is coffee and drugs.
4. Surround yourself with people smarter than you. People who uplift you, rather than drag you down.
5. Life is change, so make growth your aim. The world’s job is adversarial in nature, so stand up to the challenge and overcome it. Greater things await you on the other side.
Just say “no” to drugs…
…Unless of course they can make pharmaceutical companies/governments a shit-load of money and shut down the people’s ability to heal themselves.
I got all excited when I saw this sign because I was ready to take a rocket ship to the fuckin moon man! [insert goat's horn fingers and metalhead face with tongue sticking out here]. I rushed into the store only to find out that they, in fact had no catalyst for me to expand my mind with.
That made me sad but I resisted the zoloft because they said it would give me “anal leakage”.
I’d rather be sad thanks.
After I turned 30 I started to noticed some differences in my experience of life. Here are some of those differences:
1. I began drinking red wine, making red wine and visiting vineyards throughout different regions.
2. The black jube-jubes that only my dad would eat started to become quite enjoyable.
3. I now have indoor shoes to mill about the house in.
4. I only drink beer from a frosted glass. If I’m served beer at a pub in a glass they just pulled from the hot dishwasher, I send it back. Life’s too short for beer in hot wet glasses.
5. Women in their late 40′s became hotter and girls in their early 20′s became my some of my friend’s daughters.
6. I became painfully aware that I had frittered away my 20′s with drugs and ambitions that were totally out of reach (probably due to the drugs).
7. I started golfing on actual golf courses. Ones that didn’t have giant windmills and giant clown heads.
8. One day I spontaneously exclaimed “kids these days!” in an old grumpy guy voice.
9. Two words: Back hair. WTF?
10. Periodically, I can be seen in the “prostate health” section of the nutrition store. Thanks fear based media propaganda!
11. I absolutely care less and less and less each day what anyone thinks of what I say or do.
12. I have an entire group of friends that I rarely see because they are in bed by 9pm.
13. I notice things that change with age and blog about them.
