    Our world is full of surrender at the first sign of adversity, do not give up when the challenge meets you, meet the challenge. Through perseverance comes the rewards, the rewards that make life so enjoyable.

    Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

    if you want something, go after it. if you want to screw someone over, look DEEP in your heart and realize Karma is a bitch

    If you're referring to the foreign xchange chick...no but I could easily start one...probably write a book in fact. It would be a tragi-comedy, starring me as the beleaguered host mother trying not to kill her new foreign "offspring" in cruel and unusual ways as cluelessness, rudeness, and inconsideration of that offspring are slowly exposed!

    When you take a "better" route and end up in traffic.

    When I fix something on my car is things get out of hand or overly complex.

    Trying a new trail and discovering it really sucks.

    I did that once. The deer was frozen and after having my fingers go numb from trying to skin it we ended up hooking the hide up to a truck and the deer to the garage rafters. It still took a while to skin but it was less painful than trying to pull with just my hands.
