I have my final driver’s ED test tomorrow nooooOOOOOOOO
I’m almost certain I’m going to fail it because of parallel parking and backing around corners - I really don’t want to embarrass myself and have to pay to retake the test since I can’t even PRACTICE because I don’t have the right kind of car to practice WITH.
“When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”—
It’s been posted and it’ll be posted a million times more, but once in a while someone comes along, changes everything, and tells us how he did it. We should listen.
I want a cutie-patootie. Where are they? Is there a cutie-patootie store I can go to, or a website? I just want someone to laugh at stupid crap online with and to eat food with a listen to music with and cuddle with. Is that too much to ask for?
One day I was at the supermarket in the pharmacy area, and in the clearance rack there was a black medical eye patch. It was perfect - there were so many mod ideas that popped into my head - but because I am the biggest cheapskate in the whole world, I thought, ‘lol nah, I’ll just get it another time (which was really stupid because it was on sale)’. Since than, I haven’t been able to find another eye patch for sale at the store.
Moral of the story: being a cheap-o isn’t always a good thing - so don’t be a gigantic idiot who’s going to still remember this is two years and just buy the damn thing.
The weather report has said there was supposed to be thunder storms for the last week, but it didn’t roll in until last night. It was really amazing: everywhere you looked there was lightning, the thunder was right above our heads, the night sky was such a particular color, and it was only drizzling - but when the lightning really started to flair up it was pouring buckets.
It seems to me that Thor was either angry or looking for something, or maybe both. Well, if he was looking for something, I wonder if he has found it yet.
