Opinion opinions opinions. Everyone has one. The biggest thing one should worry about is how it affects you! You see, no matter how stubborn someone is, there is bound to be something said or by someone in particular that the person in question would take to heart. Everyone wants to give their opinion, it's human nature. The trouble is learning how to filter all the stuff you don't need. First off, I believe that people should grow thicker skulls first of all. Also, try to remain neutral about everything. One is more likely to accept opinions from those they respect or like, like friends or professors. I think that ruins our critical mind, and sometimes our ability to think for ourselves. One has to make sure to rely on their own opinions and form new ones based on what they learn and not take all opinions like they matter in life and death. There are some things in life where you have to take it at face value, like math. Either way, one has to be strong and understand that not everyone is correct in what they say. Those that tend to become leaders are ones who know which opinions to take and those who are followers will take whatever the leader will give them.
I was chasing a giant inflatable pumpkin down a sad New Jersey street when I saw you there with some funny looking contraption on your head. "Have you ever heard of radionics," you asked as the giant pumpkin hurled over the top of an SUV, leapt atop a strip mall, and decimated a billboard, before disappearing over the building, where it continued its episode of manic destruction. "No," I said. You put the contraption atop my head, and my voice could be heard (though not from my mouth) saying "I hate pumpkins anyway." I ripped the thing off my head and said, with my mouth, "what the?" You said, "Radionics is the projection of your thoughts to the world around you." And I said, "But I love pumpkins." And then you said "oh, you must have it on backwards."
They say you cant teach old dogs new tricks but I just learned one and I'm old. So it's not true the saying I mean about old dogs. Funny that. I know other old dogs and I watch them and I don't see them learn even one new trick like I did so I must be a different kind of old dog. SIT UP someone kept saying and that's what I did that was the new trick even though it's silly but I don't say that. The other one even sillier is ROLL OVER. My god what do they take me for its so stupid. I fixed them though the one that kept saying ROLL OVER I mean when I said YOU GO FIRST. And what do you know the person who kept saying ROLL OVER stopped saying that to me and from then on the only trick I did was SIT UP because when I did I got something to eat and I like to eat even though I'm old and getting fat now. Goes to show you you're better off just doing what you want and saying to hell with the everything else especially when there's nothing in it for you after all.
A long time a go when I was with all the kids in the neighborhood we decided to bury a treasure then draw map to the treasure but we had to figure out what the treasure was going to be first but no one could agree on something important enough to be a treasure so we had a hard time drawing the map at first but then someone came up with the idea that we would all put something the hole we dug and that would be the treasure then we could draw the map so we did. But then we needed drawing stuff so we put what money we had together and walked to the store and bought pencils and paper and rulers all the cool stuff to draw with and then everyone came home then everybody but me lost interest in drawing the map and I ended up with all the cool drawing stuff and the map so it was only me in the end who knew where the treasure was. Supposedly. But when I went to dig the treasure up it was gone including mine.
When I was a kid I stuttered badly and then one day I didn't. I couldn't figure our why except the little kid with me when I stopped stuttering was happy when I was pretend reading to him so much that when I made him happy with what I was reading to him it made me so happy that I stopped stuttering and I never stuttered again. When I stopped the moment I mean that I realized I could talk like everyone else I tried it out again and said everything I could think of to see if I was dreaming and I wasn't and I ran to find my dad and said dad listen to me talk and he said okay and then I talked and the words came out one after the other smooth as silk and I was so so happy and he was happy and then I went to find my mom and tell her and she said how wonderful and then I went to school and the teacher said thats good and now I want you to give a speech and I did.
