I filled a Styrofoam cup with gasoline and tossed a match into it thinking it would just burn like a torch or something. Nope. Sure did set that backyard on fire.........

I've learned the hard way with that one. Specifically whiskey and vodka. Those don't mix well together, especially in the stomach.


They make hideous women pretty.

When shooting my guns, don't wear low necklines or sandals. Do wear eye & ear protection and if possible a cap with a brim to keep the hot brass from lodging in your eye protection when it comes back down. Don't put your hand near the blowhole of a black powder firearm unless you want powder tattoos. Be careful not to get M1 thumb. Try not to let your hammer or slide on the 1911 bite.

Life never goes your way, life throws a whole bunch of unexpected things in your face at the worst possible moment, love brings intense happiness but also intense pain, you never know what you have until it is gone, people always wind up letting you down, and a whole bunch of other things I'd rather not talk about...

Don't take the people in your life for granted. I was close with so many amazing people and I tossed them away for stupid reasons and I miss them greatly.

Choose your friends wisely. If someone hurt you once they can do it again.

Don't be a pot head when your parents are conservative and anti-pot. (My dad kicked me out the house for a month until I promised I would never smoke again. I certainly will once I have enough money to move out.)

Jumped out of a 2nd floor window when I was in elementary school. My cousin kicked me out of my own bedroom and threw my stuff out of the house so I went after it. Ended up gashing my leg with a stake, getting my ear twisted by angry mother for making the jump, and excruciating pain. But not before being locked out of the house for a couple hours before someone noticing me outside.

Life Lesson: Don't let your cousin bully you.


What window?

I have learned that even the nicest of people will do awful things to others to get what they want if given the chance.

Just say no!

Really too many to list here and to also too private.

The consequences of making certain mistakes in life are huge and sometimes far reaching. Some lessons can be life or death and learning these the hard way is never fun. I've lost a lot of friends over the years and that loss never gets any easier.

Just be careful with that. There's nothing wrong with pot and alcohol has far worse effects but still...be careful. The reason I like to warn people is because contrary to popular opinion pot is NOT a gateway drug. That is not what gets people into trouble. It is the LIE that gets people into trouble. What I'm talking about is that growing up you always hear from everyone that drugs are bad. They make you do bad things, cause addiction and will turn you into someone or something else. Remember all those after school specials that always depict people who smoke pot like they're freaking schizophrenic or something. They try to pretend that pot has effects like LSD or PCP or something so when you do get curios and try it you're like WTF, this isn't near as bad as everyone says it is. I'm kinda mellow and happy and other than the munchies I'm not feeling any weird or bad side effects. Therein lies the problem. It's not as bad as they tell you it is. So one day someone comes over with a bit of coke (or some other drug) and you get to thinking: "Well pot wasn't as bad as they said it was so maybe coke (or other drug) isn't either." Then it's speed, crack, heroin, etc. At first it's not bad. You're working, supporting your own habit and having some fun. At some point things change though and you can't put your finger on when or how it happened. The party stopped and you're at home alone and wasted and trying to figure out how to get your next fix.

Just don't allow that one little lie to make you think they've lied about all drugs. Some are mentally addictive like Cocaine and Speed while others have a physical as well as a mental aspect such as heroin or opiates. It's that lie that gets so many people, not the fact that pot is a gateway drug. I don't even consider pot a drug anymore. It's too weak to be classified as one and it has too many positive benefits. Of course trying other drugs does NOT mean you will end up an addict though. It's a bit like playing Russian roulette and until you try it you won't know if you are predisposed to addiction or not. The best thing to do is not find out the hard way.

Anyway, carry on. Respect your parents wishes while you're living with them and remember they only have your best interests at heart. They love you and want you to be happy and well. Nothing wrong with that. You sound like you have your head in a really good place so I wish you the best in life. I'd rather people not learn some of these lessons the hard way like I have. Still at the end of the day only you and you alone know what is or isn't right for you to do. Go with those gut instinct's and listen to that little voice inside of you. If It's warning you not to do something then listen to it. It usually has your best interests at heart too.
