I’m preparing myself for the slew of spam texts tomorrow with the same blanket “Happy Thanksgiving” message.
If you’re going to send me a text, at least try to make it personal so I don’t know immediately that it went out to everyone in your address book. It’s tacky. If I send someone a text message, I will always put their name in the greeting or say something pertinent to them.
If I don’t want to take the time out to personally wish you a happy holiday and would rather send out blanket spam texts to you, then evidently I really don’t like you anyway so I wouldn’t be texting you in the first place.
After a lot of thinking last night, I’ve come to a few conclusions.
I know what I want out of life (to be educated, challenged, and not have to worry financially) and I want someone beside me who wants those same things out of life. I’ve been hurt before and don’t know what it will take to get myself to completely let my emotional guard down.
I have to stop getting caught up in situations that obviously won’t work out. Getting depressed over stupid little things is not healthy.
I have to go the gym at least four times a week. No excuses.
I have to be patient, and allow things to happen on their own, and remember that I’m a great person.
Finally, I have to actually believe and act on everything I just typed.
I used to be a Monday night karaoke regular there, and I was always amazed at how talented some of the singers were. But now I work at 6:45am Tuesday mornings. (ew) so no bad renditions of Sweet Caroline for me.
This weekend I ate at Jimmy John’s and saw this sign with helpful life tips.
I legit LOL’ed many times reading it.
“16 Things it Took Me Over 50 Years to Learn” - By Nationally Syndicated Columnist, Dave Barry
1. Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night. 2. If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be “meetings.” 3. There is a very fine line between “hobby” and “mental illness.” 4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them. 5. You should not confuse your career with your life. 6. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. (This one is very important) 7. Never lick a steak knife. 8. The most destructive force in the universe is gossip. 9. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time. 10. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests that you think she’s pregnant unless you can see an actual baby emerging from her at that moment. 11. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday. That time is age 11. 12. The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deepdown inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers. 13. A person, who is nice to you, but rude to a waiter, is not a nice person. (This is very important. Pay attention. It never fails.) 14. Your friends love you anyway. 15. Never be afraid to try something new. Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark. A large group of professionals built the Titanic. 16. Thought for the day: Men are like fine wine… They start out as grapes; and it’s up to the women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
If anyone knows dream interpretation, I could use your help here. I don’t remember much. I was driving somewhere I’d never been before. I don’t know where I was, but somehow I knew I’d gotten to the place I was supposed to drive to.
I then found myself talking to a tall man with a mustache. He slightly resembled Robert Goulet. We talked for a while, but I think it was mostly small talk. He seemed nice enough, and went on his way after our chat. I waited for a bit, because it seemed like the thing to do.
Next thing I know, I see this Robert Goulet-looking guy heading towards my vehicle. Something had changed. The nice guy attitude was gone, and he seemed violent and malicious. Evil. I tried locking my doors when he came up to my car, but was too late. He had opened the passenger door of my car. I slammed the car into gear and sped off, leaving him behind.
