    They're More Fun :)

    People who can laugh at themselves are generally more fun to be around and they tend to be more likable than people who take themselves too seriously. It's also a requirement for people who desire a friendship with me. I make fun of EVERYONE. I try my best not to push any limits...

    Life is short. Enjoy the mishaps

    and believe that things happen for a reason and something better will come along for you in the right time when you least expect it. We never get out of this life alive. Laugh when you need to laugh. Even at yourself. People will thank you for not bein so uptight. :)
