    Friday QOTW - 11/15 - Why is your life awesome?

    Last week my thread got kinda one sided with just me... so this week's question is:

    Why is your life awesome?


    "Be passionate and bold. Always keep learning. You stop doing useful things if you don't learn. So the last part to me is the key, especially if you have had some initial success. It becomes even more critical that you have the learning 'bit' always switched on."

    I'm successful at school, barely doing a damn thing and passing beautifully

    I'm highly successful in relation to my career, I stand out in my graduating class and had multiple offers for this upcoming summer for internships. I accepted one at a large airplane manufacturing company this upcoming summer.

    I have pretty damn good friends.

    Um... that's about it I guess. But I'm doing what makes me happy and as long as I am generally happy, I can't complain.

    Because I crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentations of their women.

    My wife and kids are the most wonderful a person could hope for.

    We have been very fortunate and not wanted for anything.

    We have wonderful friends and relatives.

    We work to live, not live to work!

    I have a wonderful wife...two young healthy and fun children...great parents...close relationships with my siblings and their families...in-laws are cool as well!

    Not to get sappy...but when people ask me what my favorite part of my life has been...I honestly feel that every year has been better than the last! And none of them have been bad. I am not the most positive person in the world but when I sit back and look at my life from a larger viewpoint...I have been damn lucky! And I appreciate it!

    GO STATE!!!

    Re: Friday QOTW - 11/15 - Why is your life awesome?

    ummmmmm I ran over three miles nonstop last night. That was pretty awesome for someone who would probably only have previously run that much if there were a bear chasing me or ice cream at the end.

    I have a pretty ok husband and we are going to be able to buy a legit big kid house next year. In fact, with payday today, my little down payment goal tracker as us back spot on for hitting my arbitrary deadline.

    Also, no angry French or unreadable German emails so far today!

    So I guess life is going ok :)

    I watched Blazing Saddles last night. Life is good.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Life keeps getting better. Beautiful wife and 3 awesome daughters. Great job with great hours and income. Live and constantly getting more involved in a great community, and tonight I get to go coach an awesome group of kids in the best HS rivalry in the state


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    My life is awesome because I have to use the low urinal in the men's room. And it's not because I'm short.

    because I am on the green side of the grass and by all rights should not be. I refuse to be pulled down although surrounded by negativity on all sides. Life has taught me to listen, observe, think, and act accordingly instead of opening my pie hole and spewing forth garbage based on hearsay or raw emotion. Life is good if you give it an opportunity.
