Life

I do write about everyday happenings in my life. I try to keep these to a minimum, but sometimes real life is the only thing I can write about.

I'm Too Young

I was having a Skype conversation with one of my nieces yesterday. As a preface, let’s say she’s very young. Like seven young.

She started by making smalltalk, “Do you have a girlfriend?”

“No.” I responded. “Do you have a girlfriend?”

She laughed. “I’m too young.”

“Too young for what?” I asked.

Ah, the things kids will say.

Small Cars in Norway

When I first arrived to Norway in November of 2011, I was in immense culture shock. One thing that still intrigues me is the size of the vehicles here. I almost felt like I was in a Jason Bourne movie (well, without all the fighting, gun shots, and the hot German woman from Run Lola Run).

How I got here is a rather long story, but let’s just say the opportunity arose, and I jumped on it.

Welcome to Norway…

I’ve grown up in various climates. When I was a kid, I lived in snowy Tonapah, Nevada.

Mistakes

In life, we make mistakes. They’re as concrete as paying taxes and dying.

I often quote a saying: “If people supposedly learn from their mistakes, why are we not all geniuses?”

Regardless if mistakes make a person smarter, I do think mistakes in life are an absolute necessity.

There are the dumb redneck mistakes that make up the joke, “How do you know a redneck is about to die?” “He turns around to his peers and yells, ‘Hey, watch this!'”

Then there are the genuine mistakes where you hurt yourself or others, whether emotionally or physically.
