Some of life's tough lessons

* Life is not always fair. It was never meant to be. Deal with it.

* What goes around, comes around.

* Idealism is great, but wisdom lies in picking your battles.

* Measure twice, cut once.

* You, and only you are responsible for the choices you make.

* How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.

* Love hurts.

* Shit happens.

* Life goes on.

* Never put your favourite piece of clothing in a public, industrial-sized washing machine.

and yes, I just got back from doing my laundry.

Gold!! Gold!! Gold!!
I agree with all that you have said (tough I havent ever used a public washing machine).....
Its surprising how things like washing cloths can teach lessons about life as a whole ;)
And I am loving the rate at which you are churning out posts, keep it up :)
