All I Ever Wanted From You

All I ever wanted from you was for you to be who you truly are and own it. I wanted you to put your words into actions. To have some follow thru with the things you said you wanted to do and the person you said you wanted to be.

The old saying is true, actions do speak louder than words, but furthermore saying things and not doing them creates distrust and leads to disrespect.

I think the problem all along is that you were trying to be who you thought everyone else wanted you to be or who you thought you should be. It’s ok to just be you!

Imagine what a freeing experience it would be to just be who you are, no apologies necessary, just do it! I know it’s hard when you have people pushing you to be a certain way and you think that they are right, but in the end, you have to make you happy and be true to yourself or no one else will.

It’s about self respect. It’s about self appreciation. It’s about self ownership. Commitment to your own values and what drives you. Forget about the other people in the background, if they don’t support you or understand, they aren’t worth your time.

In the end, all you have is you. During those times when you are feeling all alone, are those people there? Do they comfort you in return for you being the person they wanted you to be? The quiet places of your mind won’t stay quiet for long if you are ignoring what makes you truly happy.

Things You Should Know When Driving in AZ

• Whatever the speed limit is, add ten to that and you’ll be going the appropriate speed.

• If the car in front of you is in the right lane with their left blinker on, odds are they are turning right. Just cut them a brake, apparently their car’s blinker operation is too complicated for them.

• If there is slightly less than a car’s length of space between you and the car in front of you, that’s adequate space for another car to slide right in.

• If you drive a large vehicle, such as a truck or van, you are allowed to take up two parking spaces.

• If you drive a rather expensive car, such as a BMW or Mercedes, you have the right to drive like you are the only vehicle on the road. This rule especially holds true if you are driving in Scottsdale or you have a personalized license plate.

• It’s ok if you don’t have the state required liability insurance. If you get in an accident, just keep driving like it didn’t even happen.

• When a cop has someone pulled over be sure to slow down to at least 10 miles below the speed limit to ensure that he doesn’t stop writing the person he has pulled over a ticket and get into his car and chase after you.

• If there is an accident, someone pulled over or just a dust devil running across the road, be sure to slow down to 10-15 miles below the speed limit and analyze the situation.

• If you don’t know where you are going or forgot that you have to turn at the stoplight 10 feet ahead, go ahead and cut the three lanes of traffic to get where you need to be or, if you need to, just stop in the middle of the road or the highway until you can get over.

Thank you for reading, following these “rules” will help to maintain the safety of the roads and their drivers here in AZ.

Rules for Using Facebook

I see a lot of crazy stuff on Facebook and I was just thinking to myself, maybe some people need some help. You know a set of rules to guide them so that they aren't looking silly here in the electronic community. Just an FYI, I'm posting these in fun. I'm sure I've done some of this myself, but I never claimed to be perfect!

#1. Don't confuse Facebook for your diary. If it's something you don't want to discuss or delve into on a public forum then DON'T post it.
~ I don't know how many times I see people post stuff like, "I'm going thru such hard times" or "Thank you everyone for your support" Only to get replies such as, "Oh no, what's going on? Can I help?" Then the initial poster comments back, "I'd rather not get into it." or "I know you all are concerned, but I'd just prefer to keep to myself." Um, pretty sure that's not the case b/c you posted a gigantic, "Throw Me a Pity Party Sign."

#2. Respect yourself and your FB friends and limit yourself to one negative status post per day.
~ I know, we all have bad days and it seems like the best way to release your frustration is to type your anger into your FB status, but realize that your friends don't need your negativity just b/c you got a flat tire on your way to pull a double shift so you can pay your rent w/o having to sell yourself on the corner this week. You know what I'm saying?

#3. If you've never spoken to someone in real life (by real life I mean face to face, in the flesh) don't ask to be their Facebook friend.
~ Seriously, if you haven't even said, "Hi" to this person, do you really think you deserve a high and mighty title such as Facebook Friend or if you are set to English Pirate, Me Hearty? Come now, these prestigious titles are to be shared w/only those who are truly deserving!

#4. If you aren't going to remain PG13, don't be friends with your good friend's children.
~ You don't want to be the reason that your friend's son or daughter asks them what a Dirty Sanchez is, now do you?

#5. Think before you post drunken pictures of your friends.
~ My generally rule of thumb is, would I want this picture posted of me if I was the one doing a keg stand w/my boobs popping out of my shirt while some strange, dirty guy is spanking my ass?? If the answer is yes, then by all means, post the picture!! Don't forget to tag the person in the picture and hit share, that way everyone you and that person know all get to enjoy the picture!

#6. If you have Facebook Text or Facebook Mobile, do not drunk text!!!!
~ This is highly dangerous if you are texting FB text before you are drunk, then when you are drunk it's the most recent person texted. Don't put yourself in a vulnerable position ladies and gents or you could end up drunk texting all 203 of your FB friends, 178 of whom you've never spoken to in real life, that you just threw up and are now about to get it on w/that old guy you hate from Circle K!

#7. Don't tell secrets on FB or talk in code and expect not to get found out, only to get angry when you do.
~ It's not a secret on a public forum, so don't say what a bitch Suzy Mae is when you are FB friends with Suzy Mae's sister's best friend b/c you know it's going to get back to her! The electronic world is a small one my friends! You could however do what I do and tell Suzy Mae that she's a bitch straight to her face, then feel free to post it all you want b/c you told her first!

#8. Don't stalk other people's FB pages.
~ This one should really be common sense. Unless of course they are a public figure, they are your ex of any sort or you are obsessed with them in some way. If any of those are the case, then feel free, stalk away!

#9. There is no need to give a daily play-by-play.
~ Although all your FB friends love you to tears, they do not need to know that you woke up at 6:01am. Farted while you took your morning piss at 6:03am. Got cutoff by a car at 8:38am. Took your morning crap at 9:00am. And so on, it's just a lot more information than necessary. So please leave out the part about you waking up, I can figure that out by you telling me about taking your morning piss.
