Hobie what i've learned (29) what i've learned 07 Jan 01

i sent this out as an e-mail awhile back and got some pretty good responses out of it. Maybe you could add a few


As i sit down to write this i kind of ask myself why i am doing it, and to tell you the truth i really don't have a good answer. All i know is that i've had this itch in my skull for about a week now and i wanna do somthing about it. In my 24 years on this earth i have probably experienced as much as most people twice my age, and when i look back on thse experiences I try to learn somthing from them. Some of the lessons learned are rather profound and others quite trivial. I know how i am and know that i could never just sit down and say this stuff, but for some reason the thoughts that comes to my head can flow easily from my brain to my fingers. I think i'm just gonna start now.

I've learned that no matter what happens to you in this life, the world doesn't owe you a damn thing I've learned that baby's aren't quite as fragile as one might think(still freaks me out a little to hold them, they're so little)

I've learned that with enough money you can get away with anything

I've learned that there is not necessarily good in everyone
I've learn you find out who your true friends are when you can cry on their shoulder in a drunker stupor and they never mention it to you afterwards
I've learned that which does not kill us makes us stronger............for a while, one can only get so strong, then that which does not kill us just plain sucks

I've learned that every once in a while we all need to say "fuck it" and walk away...........but sooner or later we need to go back and fix the problem

I've learned that I can quit smoking any time i want.........problem is i don't want to
I've learned that owning a home is a huge pain in the ass

I've learned that band names are harder to come up with than one might imagine
