10 Things you've learnt in life?

What wisdom have you gathered in your life that you'd like to pass on to others? What have you learnt from this thing called life? Share your knowledge here!

What I have learned...

* Purple is the nicest colour

* Don't follow the crowd, be true to yourself

* Dr Pepper tastes great, so does vanilla ice cream

* Dr Pepper and vanilla ice cream rot your teeth

* Brush your teeth, before its too late!

* Tomboys are great.

* Hot weather is vile, regardless of what the weatherman says

* Halard was the greatest.

* The world is doomed

* There are LOADS of stupid people in the world...plus a few nice ones, don't let the stupid ones get you down.

Manchester City 2011 FA Cup winners! 2012 Premier League Champions! 2014 League Cup winners and Premier League Champions! At last!!!!!

1. The education system and student funding in this country is set up purely to let the rich person succeed and the much more talented and career driven less well off person fail.

2. Beer makes you put weight on, but you still drink it.

3. Oranges are not the only fruit.

4. The monsters under the bed arent really there.

5. Mouse Trap was so annoying to lose at as a kid, cos you'd spend about half an hour setting the f**ker up.

6. Rude Dog and the Dweebs is not based on real life events.

7. EVERYONE lives in fear, fear rules us all and NOTHING will save you from it.

8. Cold weather is a bastard too. (to stick up for Chris though, may I take a Half Man Half Biscuit lyric which may sum up the way he thinks "The weatherman says it's going to be a miserable day, miserable to who? I quite like a bit of drizzle so stick to the facts".

9. Football is great, I've tried to stop, but I cant.

10. Lenny Henry is rubbish.

"I'm like in a shop, looking for the right man, for me jigsaw, and believe you me, I'll f**king do it. I am the law." - Gary Hayward, Belper Town FC manager.

1 food is yummy. dieting is stupid.
2 self-love is a necessity in order to have a healthy relationship
3 presentation is everything
4 accept the compliments people give you
5 better to ignore the idiots rather than sink to their level and fight with them
6 a childs innocence and ignorance to ignorance is the most beautiful thing in the world
7 what comes around, goes around
8 dd's one and ten
9 boys and girls cant be friends w/o one having sexual thoughts about the other unless the guy is gay or the girl is ugly
10 animals make for better company than 95% of people out there


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

life makes no sense but since I am here . I can better keep going and try to relax

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

1. Go for it, whatever it is, go for it! No regrets.
2. If you don't act, nothing happens.
3. Don't eat brownies when your stomach can't even handle a single bar of chocolate.
4. Respect your parents and they will respect you.
5. Alanis Morissette is a Goddess.
6. Though there are no Goddesses or Gods.
7. Believe in yourself and try to love yourself and then people will believe in you and love you.
8. Sometimes clichés are true!
9. Thinking of 10 things i've learnt in life is damn complicated.
10. Mmm bop was a funny song, what happened to those Hanson guys?

1) Never trust a man with a moustache. Hitler Saddam and Steve Lander had one........

2) Bus timetables are a waste of paper

3) Always be a pesermist, that way things dont seem that bad in the end

4) Life sucks and just when you think it can't suck anymore it does

5) The good people always live miles away

6) My humour is wasted in Cricket

7) NEVER get a contract mobile phone

8) No matter how bad things get, never give up. There will always be one person who misses you ( for Elke)

9) Some people aren't even worth regreting losing

10) The internet is way too adictive

(errr haven't learnt this yet)

4. to take pride in good work.

(yes!)

5. never to love too much.

(hmmm, can't do it)

6. to know the difference between what's real and what's not.

(i try my best)

7. go with your gut.

(only some of the time--does this also mean go with your heart?)

8. the value of a good education.

(oh yes, i learned at least this well)

9. that when you trust too much you can get burned.

(that's just the risk sometimes u have to take)

10. again...nothing is more important than family.
(again horse racing is the most important thing in my life right alongside Rachmaninoff's music)

I can add #11

always give into temptation...b/c u never know when it will pass your way again
