Mistaken For Strangers

Ah…..the wonders of time. How for all our contraptions, knowledge, and information, we have yet to fully understand it. Even making use of it is a skill many of us find daunting. It comes by everyday, always there, and it never strays from its path. Yet, here we are, letting it slip by. Why don’t you do something productive, other than just sitting here online? Then, when you’re done with that, come back and read some more.

It seems like we never have enough of it. Other times, we just wish it went away. Ever stared at that clock at work, waiting for it to hit the five, or for those of you in school, maybe for that terrible period (with that terrible teacher/professor) to end? Other times, we just time froze, or it rewound. Ever ask yourself that sometimes you don’t even talk to some people anymore, you just never get around to it? They probably mistaken you for a stranger on the streets you tell yourself.

There are just so many things to do out there, so many things that could do so much good, for yourself and others. You could learn an instrument, read, volunteer, donate, and so many more. For a terrific, comprehensive list, look no further than here (the site has plenty of other stuff too). Just take some time and enjoy the simpler things in life as well.

Also, don't be so negative. It brings others down too, remember that, not only yourself. Taken straight out of the fantastic movie Little Miss Sunshine, " Anyway, he uh... he gets down to the end of his life, and he looks back and decides that all those years he suffered, Those were the best years of his life, 'cause they made him who he was. All those years he was happy? You know, total waste. Didn't learn a thing. So, if you sleep until you're 18... Ah, think of the suffering you're gonna miss. I mean high school? High school-those are your prime suffering years. You don't get better suffering than that. Funny how thats true, what are you going to learn if you have nothing to worry about?You'd probably end up as some spoiled rich brat then with no morals and no conscience. Not that all rich people are brats, I'm sure most of wonderful people. So, make the most out of suffering!

love that movie, one of my favorites, if not the favorite

Just one of those things that mixes great humor (maybe humour if you're british or something), drama (without being dramatically cruddy and cheesy), tenderness, brashness, meaning, philosophy, and genius all in one. Of course, we all know that humor has to be one of the best things ever, but it doesn't hurt to have meaning as well.

(that little picture over there, hahahaha....math and all its suffering, and therefore learning, what a puzzler that is...)
