True, they all seem the same here....
Something tells me I should have followed my instincts eight years ago.
I just realized I was nearing my anniversary here, and wouldn't you know, it has been eight years, today.
What a colossal time suck!
But I have met some good friends and good people here. Some of faded out of my life, others I still talk to on a somewhat regular basis. But this site just isn't the same as it was then.
Well, happy whateversary to me. See ya'll in a week or three.
I think it should be considered aggravated assault to fuck someone as badly as you're fucking me over, and then dredge up painful memories in the process.
Thanks for that.
Is it because I'm not a registered democrat, or is there an even more ridiculous reason behind it?
My new stance on all negotiations:
"Blood would spurt out of my ears like a plasma sprinkler and I would water the Earth with my own dissatisfaction."
In other news, I think the toe pain I've been fighting for a month might actually be a broken bone.
Which has really sucked for playing/coaching soccer.
...and with the good comes the bad, and the ugly.
I'm sorry. You asked this question a long time ago, and pondering it again, with recent events in my life, I think I finally realized the answer.
It is because you lack the ability to forgive. It is not something you can easily do, for the people in your life, or yourself. But it is essential to maintaining peace within yourself, and with those around you.
People are imperfect, including yourself. Failure needs not to be dealt with as if it is a personal attack against you, but it is exactly the way you treat it in most cases, followed often by misplaced anger and the inevitable bridge-burning.
I know your question was rhetorical and you asked it simply for the passive-aggressive sake of it, or to get the invariable outpouring of back-pats and sympathy, including the sad-face emoticons... but I thought you should have a real answer.
Actual suggestion from a satisfied client:
"Wow, you're really good at fixing computers. Why don't you go work for Geek Squad?"
I did my best to restrain my laughter.
I politely said, I'm a bit beyond entry level in my career, but thank you.
What I really meant to say was, I can't work for them BECAUSE I'm really good at fixing computers.
Have I learned my lessons? Maybe I have. Maybe not. How many "second chances" do I offer people. In the past, way, WAY too many.
I should be a lot more firm on not giving so many and saying enough is enough, but it is difficult.
This one will stick, but it's going to be a struggle getting her to see it and accept it...
Completed two quick shoots today, but the 3rd... the one I really wanted to do, cancelled.
Everyone is getting sick. It's fucking with my plans.
Obama should do something about all of these viruses....
