I Ponder

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 164 People

    (It took our nation 216 years to rack up the

    first $8.5 trillion in debt... then just 8 more years to double that amount.) I ponder how we let it get to this point. Why did we allow a narcissistic despot do this to us? It really is mind boggling to me. But I guess when you combine an ignorant, complacent citizenry with a...

    I'm pondering WHY I don't have ANY friends.

    I wonder if it's me. I wonder why no one ever want to talk to me or approach me.

    Restrain

    I have been whacking my head on a project. Something to do with serving alcohol... *shushes giggles in the background*. But before one can do so, one needs a license to serve. And I am stacked with these never-ending modules to study before I can take the test to be given the...

    People, some you have known all your life. Some have come in and out and you can not remember them. Some may only be for a fleeting moment but you will always remember them. I find this amazing and just can not find the rhyme or reason, one more thing for my mind to ponder.

    I Ponder a Little Too Much.

    When I'm alone for too long or in the company of others who think like me and who I can bounce ideas off of, I ponder everything. Life, death, everything inbetween, before, and after has or will at some point cross my mind. Hell, I went so far as to write two journal pages on...

    Food For Thought.....

    1. I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes. 2. There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead. 3. Life is sexually transmitted. 4. Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. 5...

    I was just thinking about themes of hardship

    or heartache we all experience. Sometimes I'll think about something and never have an answer to it, like what if there never IS an answer for it? Like, why do innocent children die each day? Why do we have to feel so low about ourselves, compare each other, etc.? And, if these...
