    I believe I've turned from being a hopeless

    romantic to a pessimistic realist. Does that make any sense?

    Some seem to think being realistic/straight up

    honest, with others and yourself, and not believing that only good exists in people, is negative. I say... you can be positive and have a good attitude, yet still be realistic about the ways of the world and human nature. It doesn't mean one automatically assumes ulterior...

    I'm forever trying to pick the lock to get into

    the backstage of whatever show is going on, I'm always eager to see who is behind what - what they're motives, intentions, desires and schemes are - and what's putting them up to it. My rose colored glasses are broken, my fairy tale side is long gone and mysticism and/or...

    me. I'm truthful and I don't waste time having false hope.

    When we spend too much time playing out our

    fantasies, the lines between the imaginary and real might become blurred. In the end, we will be overcome with longing for the imagined to become the ultimate reality. (So no thanks, that means NO to a steamy, erotic chat. Capiesce?)

    When you cut right to the heart of a situation

    there are those who refuse to see any other point of view except the ones that validate what they want to believe and reject you. Not your idea but you. It then becomes the time for you to move on and go. Nothing good or positive is going to happen.

    If you care but lied.

    You never really cared it's that simple cause if you did care you would've told the truth. Been straight up and honest and shown your true colors but you lied so now I have no problem letting you go

    People are often overly positive

    and delude themselves from reality. It's like sadness is absent from their lives. Too light hearted for my taste.

    Today, I thought I would brave the heavy traffic

    and ride downtown to my appointment. The city is bicycle friendly, and I see people with young children in the kids seat riding these roads. I was a bit nervous at first...and with good reason. I ended up riding a bit on the roads, a lot on the sidewalks, intermingled with just...

    A pessimistic person sees the glass half empty.

    An optimistic person sees the glass is half full. A realist sees that it's just half a glass.

    When people ask if I think the glass is half

    full or half empty, I say it depends on whether you poured the liquid into the glass or poured some out of the glass.

    I refuse to believe in anything without any

    scientific evidence of its existence. I'll respect your beliefs... but I personally believe a book that's written by man doesn't prove anything. It's like me asking, "How do you not believe in Spider-Man?" Followed with, "If you studied and read his comic books, you'd know he...
