Orphaned Thoughts

I was going to try and post something that I’ve been working on for a while, but I realized that it wasn’t complete and I’m too lazy to put in any effort to finish it. Then I was going to write something that I’ve been thinking about lately, but, then I had a glass of wine and I didn’t want to do that either. So instead, I’m going to half ass it and just post things that I’ve written down that I don’t have enough content to make into a cohesive post. They’re like orphaned thoughts. This post is going to give them all a home.

I apologize if none of this makes sense. My new apartment has thin walls and there is literally a guy freestyle rapping next door. It’s certainly not good. But at the same time, it’s so great…

I realized that singing “Hello” immediately makes people question your sexuality.

I once saw a billboard for justfoodfordogs.com and I realized how terrible of a URL that is. Can you imagine trying to tell someone what your website is with the word “just” in front of it?

“What your website?”
“Ok I’ll check out foodfordogs.com when I get home.”
“No no…it’s justfoodfordogs.com.”
“Yea I know. I’ll look up foodfordogs.com when I get home.”
“No you’re not getting it. Justfoodfordogs.com.”
“Yea, that’s what I said. Foodfordogs.com. I’m not an idiot…it’s pretty simple…”

Company emails can be really hard if you have a long URL. Or sometimes, your name just doesn’t work with a company email. I once emailed a guy with the email “dbagget@(can’t remember the company).com.” How terrible is that? Poor DBagget…

You know that there are 5 people named William Dickensheets in the US? If you’re wondering why I know that, you’re asking the wrong question. You should be wondering why you didn’t.

The difference between dreams and goals is action. A dream is a nice thought. To me, it’s like a Pinterest post. “I’d rather spend my entire life doing what I love than trying to love what I do.” You read that and think, “That’s really sweet. What a great motivational saying. I should pin this shit because it makes me feel like, ‘yea, I should do that.'” Two minutes later, you’re looking at how to make picture frames out of macaroni or something dumb like that.

“I have money, it’s trust and character I need around me. You know, who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are. One car in exchange for knowing what a man’s made of? That’s a price I can live with.” – Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

For a long time, I struggled with being nice and thought I was getting walked all over for a long time. But then I realized, I’m going to live my entire life as a guy who was too nice, but I’d rather be known as too nice than too mean. You have to realize that people in your life are going to fuck you over, regardless of how you act, which is fine. I’m not going to hate someone just because they hate me. And I’m not going to spend energy towards changing their mind. The good thing about being a good guy is that you attract good people. So those assholes will come along and screw you over, but the nice ones will be there to remind that not everyone is like that.

I’ve realized that the big things make up a small portion of our lives, but small things often make the biggest difference.

It’s a scientific fact that underwear is the only article of clothing that defies gravity and can actually get higher. Don’t look that up. Just go off of experience…

Welp…that’s it. Now all these little guys have a home and aren’t just stuck in my head or on a notepad document.

Thanks for reading.
