i feel kinda bad but i used to enjoy children a lot more until i got a job working with them. i still try and be a good caretaker and i definitely still think they are innocent and only deserve the best care (authoritative parenting style and all that) but i am wiped out from them. i guess getting a career in a field you enjoy is sometimes a bad idea because then the thing you enjoy becomes something you have to do to survive and it becomes warped and distorted from working on it and not just letting it be a hobby.
there is no theme here. this is just a summary of what i see/think about. (which is a little bit of everything under the sun) important posts you HAVE to see are tagged "important". sometimes this blog is pretty weird/gross. ~namaste~

don’t be in a hurry to experience things. sleep as much as you can. because lately i feel like i’ve learned and experienced so much that nothing is surprising or interesting. i’m 23. what am i going to do for the rest of life. i don’t see myself wanting to live past, like, 50.
well this isn’t completely true. i forgot i made a list of things i want to try: ouija board, zip lining, going to a psychic, treasure hunt, drugs (only very soft ones if they were legal), more theme parks, gymnastics, communicating with animals, raising a child (lol), love (because no one has ever really loved me)’:
lately i don’t even enjoy movies or most music….
smiling to trick the brain to think you’re happy
i’ve been doing this the past week or so and i think it has brought my mood up a little bit, (by one point if my mood was on a scale 1-10)
also whenever people cut me off in traffic and then get stuck by another car up ahead i don’t even get mad anymore i just laugh hysterically
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Be good anyway.
Honesty and frankness will make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People need help but will attack you if you help them.
Help them anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It was never between you and them anyway.

-don’t be embarrassed or feel stupid about trying new things or doing anything because most people don’t know what/why they do anything-
-also if you listen to what other people talk about, it’s usually pointless. so don’t feel bad if you say something stupid once in awhile because we all are usually talking to fill the air-
someone gets injured and is laying in the middle of the road and people drive past her yelling “what are you doing?!? get out of the street and get a job!”
This actually happened on an episode of 24 but it sadly still paints a pretty accurate picture of our culture today. The reason I say this is because whenever something abnormal is on the side or in the middle of the road, people usually don’t think to stop or get out and help. Okay it’s a little extreme… but I could see a lot of people doing it. Or whenever there’s a wreck on the highway and cars are all stopped and backed up, like, 5-10% of the population actually tries to swerve in and out of traffic to get ahead. I guess this usually applies to driving and not other instances because for whatever reason people act like huge assholes in the car but as soon as they get out it’s “oh may i help you?!”…
It’s usually a good thing to be alert as possible when driving and not have the tendency to speed around like you’re in a race…people, it’s not a race. Just being alert all the time is a pretty good idea. You never know when something crazy may happen so try to be ready.
I’m not trying to say everyone needs to help in every single situation, but you need to be prepared to at least slow down for any situation, in life.
