2012 words of wisdom

If you say something funny, inspirational, or just plain weird, chances are, I'll write it down. Here are some of my favorite quotes from 2012...

Don't mind the slurring, I'm a professional.

The world is a playground. You know that when you're a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it.

If you speak from the soul, you will always be heard.

The human spirit can overcome anything if it has hope.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

It's never too late to say "fuck this shit" and turn your life around. 

Never trust a man without a horror story.

No emotion, any more than a wave, can long retain its own individual form.

Don't cry because it's over. Laugh because it happened. 

Follow your heart, and you won't get lost.

Nachos are basically the savory dessert of life.

Your fridge is amazing. It's full of soy sauce and beer.

My theology degree is such a cock block.

Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination

Freeeeeedom! kite

I finally crossed #14 off my list this summer! Although the super tiny kite was designed for small children, I had lots of fun running around the beach with it.

How is it possible that I haven't flown a kite up until now? Well, I did try once when I was little. My dad was super excited about it. But as soon as he got it in the air, it got caught in a tree.

Blue skies and bocce

I can't imagine a better way to spend a #summerfriday than having lunch and playing bocce in the north end.  Why did it take me so long to cross off #24?

Gumby shares wisdom

Have you ever wondered why Gumby's head has that awkward cowlick? It's a wisdom bump. True story. The creator wanted him to have a tall, slender body without being a phallic symbol, and so the bump was born.

I feel obligated to share some of the wisdom I learned while dressed as Gumby last weekend.
  • 71 degrees is a little too hot for a sweater unitard
  • Union Square is THE place to go after a Davis Square run.
  • Kier Byrnes Freedom Runners might be the coolest running group in the city.
  • The wheel is the new plank. Everyone loves them.
  • Green food coloring makes everything taste better
  • If you wear a costume, strangers will cheer for you, you'll run faster and you'll get a lot of high fives.
