    GOTD #2: Wasps. One stung me on the back of the hand THROUGH my canvas gardening glove. I wasn't near a nest, and it didn't even give me any warning.
    I thought a flower was anything pretty you wanted, and a weed was anything you didn't want?

    So it's entirely subjective.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Morning glories are weeds, but I love them. They completely take over my parents' yard in September.

    Unfortunately, the morning glories try to take over the flowerbed in my front yard. If I let them, they'd choke out all the pretty blue, pink, and yellow flowers that I really want to be there! I was out of town the first half of June, and when I got back they'd nearly covered a flowering bush I planted last year.

    While the flowers on the morning glory vines are pretty enough, I'd like more variety in my flowerbed!

    Honestly, if it covers the ground and doesn't have burrs, thorns or stickers, it's pretty enough to stay in my yard.

    The realization that most people hate their lives. Working jobs they don't like, to buy things they don't need, to mold themselves into something that don't want to be.

    I'm not depressed about this. But It's something I don't want to EVER be. I'm thinking on dropping out of my university course which I just started. I'm not passionate about it. I'm thinking ill get a job, that isn't too mind/life destroying. Work, then travel. A LOT. Find out my passions, then do it.

    Being stuck in a car filled with people who are trying to make me eat Mcdonalds.

    ''How about an icecream?''
    'No, thanks''
    ''Okay, what about a coke?''
    ''No, I'm good thanks''
    ''Burger?''
    'No''
    ''Salad?''
    ''NO!!''

    And then they get offended!
    Just can't win.

    Dear Friend of Friend:

    If you spent half the time writing that you spend posting pithy statements on Facebook about writing, you'd have a book by now.

    Love,
