    Pushing the Limits

    I have a thing with doors. They always have a sign that says "push" or "pull." I have an irresistable compulsion to pull when it says push, and push when it says pull, just to see if the sign really means what it says. I'm testing authority.

    Of course, you have to know

    and respect the rules before you can break them effectively... I'm talking about art here.

    What Rule??

    Sometimes rules are getting so stupid. We dont know where it came from and we are supposed to follow them. I think about the rule and then If it sucks, I wont abide by it.

    I recently moved colleges

    but still (obviously) have friends at the college I left. A few teachers I am really close to said I could always come and visit them but when I tried I was told I couldn't come on campus because I was no longer a student. I knew of other people that were no longer students...

    Have Done This

    But not in all situations in my life. I have in my business and military career pushed the limits of the envelope. It's my job. What I'm paid to do. To identify the limits, the risks and the problems. Then to create the plan to maximize the potential, eliminate the problems...

    Live It Up

    Nothing that harms others and sometimes social boundaries that aren't supposed to be crossed. Tardiness, skipping, experimenting, not giving appropriate excuses, sleeping in class, talking back when I need to stand up for what I believe in. Minor infractions. Don't get me...

    Too Many to Keep Track Anymore...

    It seems like new rules or laws are created all the time.  Many under the premise of protecting the masses....But aren't some of them more like taking away our personal choices? Like the seatbelt law...I just don't understand why it is anyones business but my own if I wear...

    I Do It For Fun Sometimes.

    I don't go around stealing or anything like that, but I do break small rules once in a while. In fact, sometimes I turn it into a game.Like just a little while ago I went to the city park around 9:40 p.m. We aren't supposed to be there after 10:00, so I hid between some bushes...

    Screw the Rules!

    Who's to say what's right and wrong? If I wanna do something that doesn't harm anyone else, why not? I say screw the rules! I've been a goody goody all my life until the last year. Now I'm letting it all out and doing whatever. And I love it.
