i think this is how to succeed in life..... 73% reading people,15% knowledge, and 12% of history. reading people, and observing people is obviously the most important. once you can understand people, life is so easy. first off, you know waht they watn to hear, and you dont even have to be yourself, and you still come out successful in any situation. also, i think that people that observe other people are not only more intelligent, but will get farther in life. all i have done for the past 3 years in school, and in any situation is observe everyone.i think i once heard this quote that had to do with buddhism... (it isnt exact beucase i learned it years ago) "he who knows, doesnt speak, and he who doesnt know speaks". i never got it beucase liek most buddhism things, it contridicts itself. how would someone know that, if they spoke it. but anyway, taht is how i have been living my life for the past couple of years. i mean, i still am myself, but i see other people who jsut say things becayse they know waht others want ot hear. but, by being quiet, and jsut seeing how people acted, reacted, talked, verbally, and body language, i think i get this world. and think i will do ok in life. this isnt always a good thing, though, beucase it also showed me how rediculosu people are. how much unnessesary drama there is, that there shouldny be. i think teenagers, and adults too, jsut have nothing better to do ,and make thier lives more dramatic then it is. so their lives are more meaningful. whats wrong with having everyhitng alright? and jsut enjoying the fact taht you made it here, beucase of some miracle that occured billions of years ago that has now beocme so much more than jsut another rock orbiting in outer space. jsut the way people act, also, is incredible for me to see. i think the people i hangout with, are all on the same level with me, and that is why we get along, but most people i dont think i would get along with. you do need some knowledge though, to succeed, of course. but most knowledge you can jsut bullshit. if someone wants to talk to you about somehting, it means they want to say somehting. and since so many people are morons, they dont care waht you think. they jsut want to speak. so by knodding your head, and saying jsut a few comments about the situation you may have learned from randoms places, then that is good enough. that is why knowledge is only 15% of succeeding. it is like if someone talks about i car, and they are talking aobut engines, or whatever,and you pretend to know awht they are talking aobut, and say "yea, i got a v4"wahtever that means. the only thing you need to know si your job. if you are a veternarian, then you need to know about animals, and surgery and all taht. if you are a mechanic, you need to know onyl about cars. and you jsut go to school for that, and use that knowledge everyday for the rest fo your life. it is simple. life is simpl,e, once yuou get it. to tell the truth, i couldnt think of the other 12 percent, so i jsut put history. it is my favorite subject in school, but i think taht it is importatn beucase everything you learn is from hsitroy. it is the only way to be certain about anything. well nto anything, but most things. you learn from your mistakes, and from there figure out how to fix them, or figure out you dotn want to. so by histroy, i mean your histroy, or past, i guess you cna say. if you get taht, then you will be successful in life. and life will be so much easier. life isnt highschool.the significant other you are with now, and are madly in love with, you have such a high cahance of not knowing them when you are an adult with a job and kids(how you will spend most of your life) . that is why i hate highschool kids, all their problems arent problems at all. even the worst situation. lets say you are failing ,and have to stay back. thne you will be working till your 66 instead of 65, who fucking cares? you may evne jsut have one less year of working. and if you only get into a community college. again, who fucking cares??????? you will go there, get As and Bs , unless you are black, and , then two years later you can transfer to anywhere. you will learn what you want, get a job, and forget about the fact that you spent your first two years of college in a comunity college. life hasnt begun for anyone under the age of 22. usually even higher than that. luckily i already understand it before mine started. im not saying you should jsut go fuck around and not care waht you do. but i think teens need to calm down, and realize that nothing is a big deal yet. if you fuck up on the way, the chances are very high that you get a second chance. and if not, something always comes along the way. welp, thats about it, i think.
p.s. - you should download "Across the Universe" beucase it is a very good song.
