Ramblings

“Young people in general - and young women in particular - need to understand that they cannot retrieve in their forties the opportunities they threw away in their twenties.”

Life’s biggest regrets- Fix it now

A study came out today citing the five biggest regrets reported by those on their death beds. They are highly predictable, but important to consider. Take a look and see if you are wasting your life creating regrets- if so, change something now so when you are asked on your death bed “do you have any regrets?” you can confidently answer “none.” 

  1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
  2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
  3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
  5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and then make the choice to share it with other people. You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can’t. You have to do things. I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is. And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. I don’t know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. It’s just different. Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.

Warning, this video is disturbing, lots of language and racism. But I’m interested in knowing…do these girls deserve the death threats they’re getting or are they just being ignorant kids and should be left alone? I have my own opinions about this but I am interested in others. 

These are awesome!

Client: And could you burn the designs on to a CD once you’re done? I’ll have someone pick it up.

Me: I could e-mail it to you - if that’s to your convenience.

Client: Hmm… Well, I don’t have e-mail. But you could send it to my Gmail.

Brilliant!  Moscow finds a great rhythm and shows off its fine balance of historical landmarks with modern skyscrapers.
