There’s a quote I remember from a long time ago: The universe owes you absolutely NOTHING. You owe it to yourself to be awesome. Unfortunately I can’t remember who I heard this quote from or where I had read it. But the message is still intact in my head. Do not, ever rely on anything… Continue reading Don’t Expect
When you’re happy, energetic, positive, funny, and inspiring, your friends get to know you. When you’re sad, disappointed, angry, unapproachable, or just plain annoying, you get to know your friends.
Look, in my opinion, the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still going to think the sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with. — Mac MacGuff, in the movie Juno
I took these photographs when a friend from Singapore came visiting. My friends and I took two days off work and we went out to have a great time. She was once an office colleague and had lived here with us for a year or so, so Bali wasn’t an unfamiliar place for her.

This is just a summary of what the reverend said during this morning’s service. Fear impairs, distorts, and ultimately destroys relationships. How? Let’s see… First of all, let’s talk about the benefits of fear. Fear keeps you out of trouble. It safeguards you from dangerous things. Fear keeps you alive. Want proof? Why do you… Continue reading The Fear Factor
If you don’t remember me or what we are, I’m still your friend. I’ll remember for us both.
This one’s an old song. But the lyrics just got me thinking… I exist, but do I live? Good question. Thanks, Alanis, you really got me thinking this time. How ’bout getting off of these antibiotics How ’bout stopping eating when I’m full up How ’bout them transparent dangling carrots How ’bout that ever elusive… Continue reading Thank You Alanis Morissette
The same good will and kind words can be “felt” very differently, depending on who said those words & what the perceived true intentions are.
