I know this to be true

When I was in college I was a part of a psychology study.  The researchers wanted to know what college freshmen believed to be true and interviewed me along with other subjects four years later to find out if we still believed the same things.  I do not know the official results of this study, but I’m hypothesizing that one, the data was a pain to quantify and two, there was lots of bizarre coding involved, and that three college freshman had vastly different beliefs than college seniors. If they asked me now what I know to be true I would says something like this… Fact: It is fun to pop bubble wrap. Any statement started using the word “fact” is suspect.  It is akin to saying “I don’t mean to be rude, but…” and then going on and BEING rude. I do not like to grill in the winter. This does not mean that I don’t like to eat grilled food in winter. Please don’t confuse the two. Grill for me! You don’t need church or religion or Jesus to be a good person. Just when you think you’ve figured this thing called life out, there is a game changer causing you to regroup. You can find anything you need and lots that you want online. You get to choose your attitude. It’s cheesy and true all at the same time. If the door is closed, then the cat wants it open and vice versa. Some people are a mess and that’s just how they are going to be. The only person you can change is yourself. You will never understand what your dog is barking at sometimes and that’s ok. People do no like to hear “No” even if it’s true. Eating over processed products instead of food makes you fat. No one likes a complainer. That call, the one you’ve been waiting forever for, will only happen if you run the vacuum or are in the shower.  So go on with your life.  That’s why voicemail was invented. But above all: Life isn’t fair.  Your mom told you when you were little, but you thought she was lying.  She wasn’t.
