1. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.
2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
3. Bad decisions make good stories.
On that note, my father once told me that, at the end of my life, I would remember the experiences I had not the items I purchased. I take this to heart each and every day and consciously put myself into situations where I will have the opportunity to meet new people, learn new things or at least have an interesting story to tell a friend.
People always describe me as a "nice guy" and I don't see this as a bad thing. I'm an excellent friend, the first person people call when they need a favor and always go the extra mile to help someone out.
