Why indeed

I always find it disturbing how the experts have so much good advice for my life but never seem to apply it to their own.

Pay someone to do it yourself

I've never understood why I bother to pay a teacher to tell me to read a book and figure it out myself. Since finishing school, I've learned a lot more and paid a lot less by going straight to the book and cutting out the middle man.

People have different ways of sympathizing. And teachers that are honest tend to be the bad guys.

The big picture

School projects have been known to get out of hand. Some people take somethings a little too seriously.

Free vs. Paid

I had a roommate who threw a party for his relatives the night before his sister's wedding, and he charged them to get in after they traveled all the way to Phoenix to attend the wedding. And the crazy thing is they paid and thought nothing of it.

Those who fail to plan ...

My sister has a saying: "Those who plan, plan to fail." That one seems to be truer and more accurately describe real life than the other saying.

I almost feel bad about pirating movies

When Napster first came out, I thought it was the coolest thing to get all the free music one wanted. Then Apple figured out how to create an honest system with consumers still having convenient access to a giant library and those creating the music to still get paid, and I actually find that route better. Like Steve Jobs said, good karma.

THAT'S your apology?

When I think about who I'm friends with and who I'm not friends with, I can't see any logic in it. It's funny who we gravitate (or don't gravitate) to.

More Dictator than Director

I always find it ironic and sad how people seem to blame others for things they are guilty of themselves and how easy it is for them to point out faults in others but miss those same flaws in themselves.

My way or the highway

How many times have I heard someone say something and then act surprised or become furious when you took them at their word. People really need to think before they speak.

Your sacrifice just won't be noticed

I think back to how many times I've gone out of my way to help someone else and make their project or dream or duty happen and to get nothing in return for it, not even a thank you. But then I have to ask myself if that's what I really did it for.
