    Stuff you've learnt the hard way

    1-Leaving your glass on a rather wobbly cheap table beside your only laptop is not a good idea. Yes, you can drain the water out but it won't help A cheap keyboard that plugs into the laptop doesn't help much after the fact.

    2-Panicking when trying to get into a multi storey car park is not a good idea. That crunch/scrape you hear can be fixed.

    You can survive putting contacts out of unneutralized H2O2 contact solution into your eyes.


    It's not smart drinking 300ml. hard liquor.


    It's not smart drinking insubstantially less and topping it off with a couple fags.


    Think before buying a bike that "just" fits.


    You will get over it.

    (plus, how come no one tells you that tattoos tend to get blurry over time??)

    Hmmm.....ok....
    1) alcohol is not my friend and cannot come over for a quick visit, either.
    2) I've learned that one can respond to rudeness and lack of manners or lack of common courtesy in a direct but civil way that is usually way more effective than responding in kind with more rudeness.

    Both these things took me a couple of decades to figure out. (maybe I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer)

    I will NEVER be a twig, but being burly has its uses and is beautiful too.

    Just taking it on the cheek is not good, you will hate yourself later. Standing up for yourself might be a bit scary but totally worth it.

    When you say something stupid because alcohol someone will be soberer and remember it. If they are your friend they will forgive you.

    Be prepared to take the blame for other people's requests.

    Forgive, but don't forget.

    Life is not black and white. There are lots of shades of grey.

    These hips are not going anywhere.
