5 things you're glad you learned the hard way

For the "glass half full" crowd.


1. That birth control pills can be less effective than ye olde coitus interruptus, and that the IUD is the god of birth control
2. That the things you think when you're a teenager don't define you for the rest of your life
3. That math is awesome
4. That frequently, confidence is all a show
5. That good friendships have a discrete quality to them (not necessarily discreet though)

1. Ultimately, I am a good student. More importantly, I'm a very capable learner.
2. I need other people. And they need me.
3. I need to be healthy and well to enjoy life. Being overweight, out of shape, and sick because of it is no way to live.

That even though I'm shy, if I remember to present myself I can make friends.

That I am good at problem solving

That naked ladies are more interesting than books, more fun than games, more diverting than TV, better tasting than sweeties, and more fun to stroke than kittens.

1- Beer goggles are not as fun as tequila goggles
2- More drugs doesn't always equal more fun
3- Always take the magazine out of the rifle before pulling back the cocking handle on an unload (thought i'd be getting married doing pushups after that one minor snafoo)
4- Sometimes utilising her idea of sexy lingerie is a better idea than making her look sexy in yours (idea that is...)
5- I really do like to party

1) Going to school actually does make you smarter
2) No one likes an asshole
3) Staying at home night after night isn't a good social life
4) I don't have to be the best at everything
5) Give your everything into a relationship, and that will be returned to you.

2. Jumping through hoops, whether they are in college or at work, SUCKS!
3. Relationships without oral sex are BAD!
4. Laughter heals.
5. It's OK to be alone at 45.

1. Regardless of the strength of your relationship, not having friends is HARD.

2. Seconding 44phoenix, relationships without oral sex are not good.

3. College does NOT make you better, superior, smarter, or anything else (in and of itself). Think I'm wrong? go ahead and get a job working with your hands... or outside your major....

4. Cheating is NEVER worth it (if you get caught)

5. There is a musician(s) out there who can express your thoughts in music. and listening to them will make your life more fulfilling. my personal musicians are hank III, Reel Big Fish, Catch 22, Sublime, and Eminem (don't care).

I won't say I'm glad I learned these the hard way, but I do appreciate them...

1) Gut instinct usually is a lot more accurate than you think
2) Sometimes, people you think you can trust will throw you under the bus. Then back up over you. Twice.
3) Sometimes a journey of a thousand miles ends very, very badly.
4) Plan for the worst, strive for the best.
5) No plans are ever so good as to never have life change them for you.

1. Not giving up completely on certain people is completely worth it. Figure out if what they did is cause for complete dissolution of all relationship and if it's not, keep them around on the edge for awhile and see what happens.
2. Self-confidence really is important in relationships, work, education and life in general.
3. Taking a leap every once in awhile is good for the soul. Just not into the depths of depression.
4. Sweat is GOOD FOR YOU. Doesn't matter if it comes from the gym, nerves or hot peppers, it gets out what ails you, dumbass.
5. Kitties contribute to happiness. When they're not around, there's a hole in my soul.

1. There is no friend who won't turn on you somehow, someday.
2. Don't find your joy in others, find it in yourself and then share it with others.
3. The mother's curse is REAL (I hope you have children who are just as bad as you.)
4. The best place to find hypocrites is in church.
5. Your instincts are usually right.

1. No matter how intense the relationship, maintain your own interests, friends, employment (for non-parents) and gym membership. Nothing worse than ending up single, unpopular and slightly podgy.
2. Your bottom looks better than you think it does.
3. The idiosyncracies you have spent your youth trying to erase are actually the things that will make you stand out from the crowd, get noticed, get appreciated. Don't bother being a cookie-cutter person. You'll end up bored and boring.
4. People with half your talent and personality are living your dream. So just get off the chair and get out there. Why not you?

1. College is what lucky (rich) kids attend to grow up and often waste. Poor kids join the military. Both groups have smarties and dummies.
2. Nobody likes an asshole, but nice guys get taken advantage of far more often than assholes do.
3. The idiosyncrasies you have spent your youth trying to erase are actually the things that will make it difficult to get any job that requires a background check. Be a cookie-cutter person on the outside. It keeps The Man happy. Freedom of expression and sense of style are not something professionals care much about.
4. When your partner says "I love you but I'm not in love with you," that's your cue to move out. It also lets you know that they don't understand love much.
5. We are what we do. So do something.

1. Other people can't make you happy or sad without your permission

2. While money doesn't buy happiness, lack of it at a certain degree can really bum you out.

3. Needy, whinny, spongy, gossipy people et el (this list can get long) should be dealt with like a cancer, removed as soon as diagnosed.

4. Never assess your own happiness on anyones life but your own. There's always going to be someone who seems to have it better, more money, better love life etc... Chances are their life is just as screwed up as yours, if not more so.

5. Going commando is cool and all but it really hurts to get it caught in the zipper.

5 things you're glad you learned the hard way

1. When it comes to matters of love, trust your heart, not your head.
2. It's easier to accept one's faults and move on than to try to cover for them all.
3. Lake Superior is colder than Dick Cheney's heart.
4. Despite the way they look, the weird Arab desserts in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem are usually delicious.
5. How to have an erection.
