I Dislike Certain Phrases

    I Hate The Phrase "Everything Happens For A Reason."

    "Oh everything happens for reason." Is it just me, or does anyone else hate the phrase "everything happens for a reason?" To me, this phrase would mean that NONE of us are in control of our future or destiny. And wouldn't that suck? See, if everything happens for a reason...

    Practice Makes Perfect

    It's not true, children. You will never become perfect. I used to think if I set my mind to something I could do it no matter what. It's not true though. Nobody is perfect, and kids need to learn this and stop wasting their time on things they're not meant to or don't want to do...
