Church

This post is not really about church. It’s just that “What I Know for Sure” is already taken. With that in mind, here goes:

  • Your life reflects your attitude, and not the other way around.
  • Demons are internal.
  • So are Angels.
  • The smell of coffee wakes me up just as much as the caffeine in it.
  • You really can do amazing things with vegan food; don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
  • You don’t have to be a vegan to enjoy vegan meals.
  • Linux is what you make it. You can’t pigeonhole it as “too hard,” especially if you haven’t used it.
  • You don’t have to be a devotee of any operating system. Firefox runs on everything. So does Chrome.
  • You don’t have to spend a lot of money for a computer if you only want it to run Flash games, check your e-mail, and troll Facebook. People at box stores will try and get you to believe that you need the latest and greatest technology~ and you don’t, unless you are editing EXTREMELY large photo files (like RAW), editing HD video, or have a penchant for buying the latest games. Anyone who tries to sell you a multi-thousand dollar Facebook machine is snorting something.
  • I would also recommend buying a netbook or a laptop, because if you want a big monitor, you can buy it externally. A computer that fits in your bag will be a lot more useful to you. If you’d rather have an iPad or a Nexus tablet, spring for the Bluetooth keyboard case if typing on the screen is annoying (I cannot stand touch screens. They are of the devil.).
  • Even though Kurt Vonnegut didn’t say it, you really should wear sunscreen.
  • If you feel depressed, the faster you admit it and get help, the better you’ll feel. Don’t lament over the number of years you didn’t know how bad you felt until you finally decided enough was enough.
  • Spending time outside is more and more satisfying as you do it.
  • If you have a desk job, you don’t need as many calories as you think you do. Humans were not designed to be stationery.
  • My handwriting will never be the same now that I type almost exclusively. This is because I used to have nice penmanship until repetitive strain injury beat it out of me.
  • Do not stay one minute longer in a relationship you know is failing. Your life is worth more than feeling miserable every day. Marriage is a blessing. So is divorce.
  • Do not job hop with reckless abandon, but at the same time, nothing is accomplished if you feel worthless every day and it is hard work not to just get up and walk out. Eight hours a day is a long time to feel miserable at once.
  • If your brain is feeling lazy, listen to jazz.
  • My favorite proverb is “a man can do any amount of work, as long as it is not the work he is supposed to be doing at the time.”
  • I do not think that mashups ruin my opinion of the original version of the song. They make your mind work in different ways.
  • The same goes for new versions of old music, like the self-titled album by East Village Opera Company.
  • Being angry is really overrated.
  • So is avoiding being angry at all.
  • Truth is relative, and I differentiate. Your story is truth. Universally true is Truth.

And let the people say, “Amen.”
