Default biggest Lesson

So I'm bored and thought I'd make a thread. So what's the biggest lesson you've learned recently? could be anything, or just something major you realized lately. For me it would be that going to art school was a mistake. I never draw or paint just on my own accord anymore, and I feel like studying art in college is sucking all the fun out of it. But I figure the only way you'll learn anything is by trying it out in the first place, so I don't feel as though I've wasted a year (until I look at what tuition cost me this year).

Buy tickets early. I used to have it down, but then started getting lazy. Now I've got to buy $35 tickets to see McCoy Tyner, when I could've gotten them for $5. Still makes my blood boil, such a missed oppurtunity.

Another thing I've realized lately is how restless I'm getting living where I'm living. Don't get me wrong, I love calgary, and I've got a great life here, but lately I've been getting this feeling that there's just too much history here. I've lived here for 9 years now, not even that long at all, but I've just been feeling like I need to get out. This is pretty much my main reason for going to New Zealand this summer. Of course the fact that I'll be able to ski is a big plus, but the main attraction for me is that it's halfway around the world. I love the idea of just heading off by myself, no plans, no agenda, no safety net, flipping my life upside down and seeing where I end up. My only plan has been to work there and ski, but I can easily see myself ditching that and just heading off to southeast asia on a whim. My life is so structured right now, everything's planned out because I need it to be. For a while now I've really craved uncertainty, hopefully this summer I'll be able to get a little bit of that out of my system.

i don't have much time to post, but i thought i could share this
so the biggest thing i've learned in the past month, actually, is to try to make your life easier, by never being afraid "in advance".. like with school.. so i have an exam today (really, i do) and the thing is, i'd probably do shit if i actually thought about it and be like OMG..
like last week, i was a total wreck, thinking this week was gonna suck cause i had a LOTTTT to do. instead, just as the week started, i began to look on the bright side, thinking SO WHAT IF I'M GONNA FAIL? and everything seemed easier. and i dunno, i'm not afraid anymore. not right now

Just choose your roomates carefully man, my friend Joe did that. Moved from roughly Providence to Colorado and worked on the mountain. Problem was the only people who paid the rent (out of the 4 guys living in his place) were him and the other person who signed the lease.

Im not exactly sure if he left without paying off the bill but its a little easier to skip rent when you can move back across the country than when you've got to go through customs.

Look before you leap... in other words make sure everything is okay before you ruch into something unsure.

Traveling alone on business drives me to drink heavily.
