    Enjoy The Joke Too

    I won't laugh at someone else, but I will always laugh at myself. I will be the first person to crack a joke at my own expense. I like people who are comfortable enough with themselves that they never have a problem laughing at themselves. It shows an ease of character and enough...

    I Have To

    Because of my condition, I have to be able to laugh about it, because I would be bitter otherwise. You should see the looks I get when I want to buy beer.

    There was a mood in the air,

    and you could almost hear that familiar sense of perfect serendipity in the atmosphere. There was such a positivity in it all. A general weekend-in-the-horizon vibe. In the distance, a purple sun was setting and locks of copper-tinted hair swung with the same sense of freedom we...

    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. :)
