A Collection of Thoughts

I think about stuff a lot, and sometimes there are thoughts I think that don’t really need a lot of elaboration, but they’re still gold. Below are some nuggets of greatness that I came up with over the last year and never really put any more thought into.

  • Just because you have a fascination with or the desire to do something doesn’t mean you’re qualified to do it. (i.e, just because you’re interested in helping people with their problems doesn’t mean you’re destined to be a therapist. Maybe you’re just a good listener. But good luck with that psychology degree, I’m sure you won’t have any problems finding a therapist’s job with that.)
  • When you look at your phone, see the pound sign, and call it the “hashtag sign,” that’s when you know the internet has started to ruin you.
  • Just because life gets better doesn’t mean it gets easier.
  • If you’re the kind of person who takes the time to find things that offend you, or could potentially offend others, you’re doing life wrong.
  • Sometimes I feel like the only difference between me being hilarious and simply being a cynical prick is a certain level of fame.
  • I will never understand why gas is the only thing that we charge 9/10 of a cent for and NOBODY ever questions it.
  • The inside of a ping pong ball smells like Vicks VapoRub and I think that’s way more interesting than it probably actually is.
  • Part of me wants to learn all about craft beer just so I’m not left out of 95% of the conversations I’m involved in.
  • If you cross multiple lanes of interstate and then use the on ramp and shoulder to pass me, don’t be shocked when I give you the finger.
  • If a contractor’s job is to ensure the project adheres to all standards and is finished on time, then why has that never happened before?
  • You spend the first 25 years of your life figuring out what you can do, then you spend the remaining years saying, “Well, I guess I can’t do that anymore.”
  • Just because someone your age or younger may appear to be more advanced in their life, it doesn’t mean they made all the right decisions, are any happier, or are any better off than you are.
  • Can we stop calling them “Boneless Wings” and start calling them what they really are? Chicken nuggets for adults.
