If you were to make a list of things that you've learned in your life so far, what would they be?

shit. this could be a long list.

hmm ill just get myself started a bit

1. people can be cool but suck a lot of the time
2. people think very highly of themselves (which is why they suck)
3. internet is great but a huge waste of time...most of the time
4. stand for things you believe in, even if everyone disagrees...especially because they're probably wrong anyway (see 1 and 2, and i've actually only started taking this advice more seriously)
5. being an unpopular nerd has its advantages
probably more to come

good idea for a thread!

One can only speak of appearances and not things in themselves.

I agree with pretty much all of yours. Especially number four. Definitely don't be so big-headed that you can't admit fault, or take other opinions into consideration, but as a rule always stand up for what you believe in. One of my biggest ones for sure. Here goes nothing

1.) People are generally self-centered, egotistical and cruel to each other. Human nature is the root of basically all the evil in this world, which makes for a weird irony knowing that you have a contempt for humanity because of how humanity is to each other.
2.) Being "cool" is overrated. It took me awhile, but I'm much happier the way I am. You will attract many friends who are into the same things you are, and it's then that you realize the "cool" boundary is basically made up by that clique of people. Everybody is cool. Except juggalos. And those excessive gangsta type people.
3.) Hard work pays off. Much of what you can accomplish in life can be accomplished simply by giving your all.
4.) Being privileged as a youth is a downfall. As I've gone through life these last three years since high school I've learned that I appreciate what I have more. I have to work for everything I have, and pay for school myself. I have a sense of pride in what I accomplish and what I have because I've done it largely myself.
5.) Happiness is a journey, not a destination. It's been a bit hard to follow lately, but you can find happiness and fulfillment in just moving forward in life and enjoying where you are at in the moment. If you look too much into the future, you are anxious. Too much in the past, you are depressed.
6.) You can't be everything to everyone, but you can be something to some. That is good enough.
7.) Dreams will keep you going through the hardest times. I feel bad for some of the people I've known who were content to just fester where they were. In my last job, some only wanted to punch the timeclock out so they can go abuse drugs and alcohol. My dreams and aspirations keep me moving forward, and in turn, keep me decently happy.
8.) Relationships are one of the most wonderful things on this Earth, but also one of the worst things. Being sad over a lost relationship can harm your life for quite some time.


I'll end at that I guess.

You can put a spin on nearly everything to make it look either positive or negative or a counter argument

Clubbing seals is cruel and you're murdering animals for game
There are not enough fish in the ocean to feed them and it is apart of culture

You shouldn't speed on the highway if you want to be fuel efficient
Time is money

People who aren't honest are afraid.

You will get do everything in this lifetime that you wanted to do. (But its up to you to do it)

Memories are not as reliable as experiences.

Everything is a multitude of contesting beliefs and ideologies and the trick to existing with others is acknowledging that they all exist at the same time.

You can learn about a person so well through the art they make.

Being brave is scary at first but then you are set free.

Romantic love has a habit of appearing when you stop wanting or searching for it.

Yeah, I used to hold onto memories all the time. Trying not to forget good moments, taking pictures of everything, writing it down in my journal. Lots of documentation. But theres this thing about memory, when you recall something, the next time you are recalling the memory of the memory, and every time you remember it its slightly skewed and over layers and layers, over years its this weird thing that doesnt completely recall the experience. But having gone through that experience was important, when you experience something, it will never leave you. You dont remember every single time you experienced happiness, or jealousy, or a certain situation, but you experienced it and the more you do something hopefully the better you understand it, the better your 'instinct' for it. That your being was made less new and more knowledgable even if you memories dont tell you how. Thats why when i go into things I dont for the memory, because they fade and get skewed, but that you did it, (went up on a stage, conquered a fear, made someone happy) teaches you how to do it better next time, and understand things better.

You know what sucks? Small talk at work. Everyone knows that neither party cares about how good the other person is feeling.

I wish there was another guy my age at work I could be boys with. The only other guy is probably nearing his 70's. He's cool as hell thought, I'll probably never be as smooth as him

Any joke he tells is funny just because of his extremely deep voice and wonderful moustache.

Not at my jobs. At Morgan Estates, everyone's a stoner. Wendy's - sexaholics. So it all stays fresh. Moustache Man sounds pretty cool, though.

Ametudes - good point. sort of like the difference between knowing the path and walking the path? god, I love the Matrix.

Matrix!

v. good film.


I used to cringe and remember embarassing memories so hard. But I've learned to- its such a cliche- 'not care what anyone thinks about you' and you're kind of set free. cept its not easy

I started an office job today! A couple middle aged women talking about all the food they'd like to eat, and two girls my age so far. I feel relieved I have a job. No deep voices and wonderful moustaches. I wish there was some cute boy my age to seduce, but you can't have everything. Haha.

On Friday we all went to a convention so everyone dressed up.

Moustache man has the same name as me.

"Wow Dave you look spiffy!"
His reply
"I am spiffy"


"Dave you gotta dress up more often"
"Look at you Dave!"

I responded to at least two of these and felt like a jackal
