The truth will set you free…

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so. ~ Mark Twain

This quote says it all and reverbs loud in my head today.  It really, truly does.

Human nature.  It’s a funny thing ain’t it.

I know a lot of things that ain’t so and won’t be so.  I’ve come to realize this. But, the reasoning behind the choices, make no sense at all.  You can’t force people to do the things you want or to make them change.  You can’t help them see the light or make them understand what is good for them, what will make their lives awesome or truly happy.    You just can’t.  You can be patient till the ends of time, but it’s up to you to make a final choice.  You can look at this patience a few ways, time wasted, lessons learned or hope.  Myself, I’m the patient hopeful one.  Most of the time.  Where is that getting me?

I’ve spent a lot of time inside my own head this last week, way too much time, time I needed to spend.  Due to depression and no money, I’ve imposed a house arrest on myself.  Yes that sounds a little harsh, but I really can’t be around people right now.  I’ve decided to focus on me, get writing done, look for freelance work and other types of work to help ensure I can pay rent, bills and eat.

I know I’m not, nor will be anyone elses priority and in the fight on my own.  I guess I always have been.  As with most things, it all comes back to Zombies.  In the event of a Zombie outbreak, you actually have a larger chance of surviving if you go out on your own.  No one slowing you down, no one else to worry about.  That’s the survival instinct I keep fighting.  I tell everyone else to go with their gut, when in fact I keep trying to force another conclusion.  Time to practice what I preach.

Random thoughts….

What the hell is dry mopping and doesn’t that defeat the purpose?

Why aren’t there any Scottish Pubs in Toronto? Why do the Irish get to have all the fun…

How can you sound like a broken record? If it’s broken… you shouldn’t be able to play it.

What the hell is wrong with Kermit the Frog? You have this hot, curvy blond that is infatuated with you, yet you continue to run away.

Why is it if I use my knowledge of what to do during a Zombie Apocalypse I can figure shit out, but when I use simple logic, I screw my life up.

How many morons does it take to screw in a light bulb?

Who ever invented duct tape is a f*cking genius.

Why don’t men make passes at women who wear glasses. Afraid they are too smart for you? Nerds are hot!

Why is it that the nonsensical conversations I have with people are the only ones that make sense?

WWLD

Lemmy is GOD!

Elvis isn’t dead. He was abducted by aliens.

Why am I funnier on Twitter?

I wish someone would come to my place and cook me a meal for a change.

I still think boys with tattoos are hot and you can’t change my mind!

Smiki logic works in almost every situation.

Yes… I’m drinking alone and weird things are happening in my head right now. Seriously, I’m delirious and shouldn’t be left to my own thoughts.
