This page is where I write what's bugging me or post other writing that I find interesting; just sharing what's on my mind, or what fell off it!

Penny for my thoughts....


It's amazing that a complete stranger on the road can tell instantly, what takes a woman I'm dating a month to figure out! That I'm an asshole! -LEC2

I was once told by someone that cared for me, "I hope you find what you're looking for."  It's funny how life is, every time you find what you're looking for, it doesn't work out.  For some, when they find what they were looking for, they realize that they didn't know what they wanted.  For others they find what they are looking for, but what they found doesn't share the same feeling.  Even though I know, I have found what I'm looking for a few times in my life and I know that others found what they were looking for in their life.  Why can't we find what we're looking for together? -Bob

What is a degree worth?

 

Well letís take this example for instance.  ďA personĒ just out of high school could have made (back in 1997 if he worked full time) approximately $52,000 a year.  Instead went to college, not for themselves but for their family.  This person was put thru all kinds of shit the first year.  Was ready to give up on this college thing, it was just a bunch of bull shit.  But once again, went back not for their self, but for their family.  While in college the professors all have the attitude: screw the students.  ďWhy are you here?Ē  ďWhy donít you quit?Ē  Never was there any help, never once encouragement.  So this person puts up with this shit year after year.  Till one year, they are fed up with this shit again.  They think about changing their major to something they would enjoy doing, maybe architecture.  After thinking about this for a long time; thinking that they would have to start over again like a freshman, decides to change to a major in the same department that would only require them to dump those semestersí classes.  Doing this didnít relieve the bull shit, it continued to grow and grow.  As the years when on, people were like ďyouíve gone so far, you canít quit now.Ē  So the person tried to endure, to put up with the shit, but even when it should have been over, there was one last asshole to fuck this person over. Over then next year this person came around and would not let this asshole win.  So this person got thru all this shit to get their degree.  Now the degree sits in a room, a piece of paper to set drinks on, to wipe their ass with.  Jobless, since now in the recession all jobs require 10+ years of experience and Ph.D.ís.  Why the hell did this person even bother?  The people that they were doing it for in the first place are now long gone.  The people were not physically present when they graduated, but yet a smile could be seen in the end and a tear showing that even though they were not physically present, they were still there never the less.  So now the degree hangs on the wall not for this person, but for the others to see and admire. -Bob

I was writing something on this page about a month ago and I had to go somewhere; I never finished it that's why there was just "Well" here in this space.  I have no idea what I was gonna write.  Anyway I have been thinking about things the past week or so, not to sure why,  I went to Boise, Idaho to visit a friend, and I had a feeling about going on the plane like that this maybe the last trip I would ever make.  It turned out OK, I'm still here.  People around me have been acting strange.  You know when you're going along and you think everything is fine and then people around you start acting weird and you don't know what happened, you ask and they said its nothing just stuff that has been happening.  Well sure everyone says that but I'm not like everyone else I feel bad about all sorts of things.  I feel that it maybe my fault in some way.  Well it could very well be my fault and I just don't see that.  Anyway I went away for 3 days and I didn't have to think about all of this.  I don't like things that come up like this and worry me.  What can I do? Nothing that I can see. -LEC2

Your Inspiration: YOU BRIGHTEN MY DAY!


The days of cloud or sunshine,
The moments that we share,
The timely word, the thoughtful line,
The note that says "I care"...

Mean more to me than I can say,
So it's time, I think, you knew,
How much it brightens up my day
To have a friend like you!

What brightens all my memories
Is the great times that we've shared...
You're one of those special people
'Cause you take the time to care!

When I feel a little blue and sad,
The easiest thing for me to do,
Is remember that things can't be that bad
When I have wonderful friends like you!

Well I donít know what exactly to say, I didnít know how a special friend affected my life until he was gone.  Sometimes you donít know what you have until you lose it or just before!  My friend was always there for me and helped me when I needed it, and even when I couldnít even ask for help!  We were hanging out all the time, I felt as if he was my brother.  Many times in life people come and people go but the special ones make an impression on you that you will always remember.  These are the people, that down the road you want to keep in touch with, and though the years your friendship will grow and not dwindle! You find out that this was really your best friend! - LEC2

If a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it. -Edgar Watson Howe

It can buy a House...............But not a Home

It can buy a Bed..................But not Sleep

It can buy a Clock................But not Time

It can buy you a Book..........But not knowledge

It can buy you a Position......But not Respect

It can buy you Medicine.......But not Health

It can buy you Blood............But not Life

It can buy you Sex..............But not Love

Read Each One Carefully and Think About It a Second or Two

 

1. I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.

2. No man or woman is worth your tears, and the one who is, won't make you cry.

3. Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to, doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

4. A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

5. The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting right beside them knowing you can't have them.

6. Never frown, even when you are sad, because you never know who is falling in love with your smile.

7. To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

8. Don't waste your time on  a man/woman, who isn't willing to waste their time on you.

9. Maybe God wants us to meet a few wrong people before meeting the right one, so that when we finally meet the person, we will know how to be grateful.

10. Don't cry because it is over, smile because it  happened.

11. There's always going to be people that hurt you so what you have to do is keep on trusting and just be more careful about who you trust next time around.

12. Make yourself a better person and know who you are before you try and know someone else and expect them to know you.

13. Don't try so hard, the best things come when you least expect them to.

 

REMEMBER: WHATEVER HAPPENS, HAPPENS FOR A REASON.

ďEvery now and then we find a special friend that never lets us down.  Who understands it all, reaches out each time we fall, youíre the best friend that Iíve found.Ē  Is the opening lines to one of my favorite songs Remember Me This Way by Jordan Hill. It makes you think that sometimes you feel that way about a friend but something happens and you lose this trust, this feeling for them.  Itís almost like ďI really feel that Iím loosing my best friend, I canít believe this could be the endĒ from Donít Speak by No Doubt.  I guess you really donít know whatís going on, sometimes you have problems and you need someone, but you canít ask for help.  It looks like you need really good friends to see that you need help without asking them for it, sometimes you donít think you need their help but the really good friends can see that something is wrong and help anyway.  So are you a good friend, or just an acquaintance? -LEC2

Well what can I say just another fucked up summer.  Just one thing after another.  First I meet someone that I think is really special and I lose her. The following month I lose my grandma to cancer. And if things weren't bad enough for me and my parents, my parents end up getting into a major accident when they were in Henderson getting the things out of my grandmas' house.  I guess when I look at it all, it could have been worse, yet I don't see how yet, but I'm sure it will present itself. -LEC2

    What if the accident is much worse that I thought. What if this last month of my life is not real? What if they are still trying to get me out of the car? The Jaws of Life is working as fast as they can. 
    The past month has been very hard for me. Iíve been through so much, so fast. First, as you know I was in a car accident. Then the following weekend my grandpa died. Then school when to hell. I went to California for spring break and I went to the doctorís everyday. The doctor took a biopsy from my head to see if I have cancer. To finish out the month of excitement I fell off the roof, and sprained my ankle. 
    What if my mind is running wild? So many things go through your head when shit happens. This past month could have happened in just a few seconds in my mind. Maybe Iím in a coma, just lying there. Living my life in a nightmare. Who is to say that life isnít one big dream, that what we see, what we feel, what we are is just bullshit. -LEC2
