People say they don't care what others think but, let's be honest - they do. But, I don't really care, do u?

Not getting angry at jokes directed towards you. Some people are assholes and poke fun. Understanding that if they're poking fun and they aren't your friends or family then their opinion should mean nothing to you.

Why do all of our best ideas happen when under the influence? Or is that a thought we just believe to be true?

I will say some of my best ideas spring forth with a nip of Grey Goose, but all the ideas at the bottom of the bottle never seem to pan out.

I can't be alone here.

I know that there has to be people who acted upon ideas born when smoking the Mary J. (do the kids say that anymore?) that when put into action thought... "Well that was a mistake."
