Quote of the Day

"I'm not cynical; I'm just experienced."

So when Dave and I started dating I used to have a quote of the day EVERY day. So today's quote is the one above. I saw it and liked it so much I had to post it on my blog. It kinda describes my life up to this point. It's not that I don't believe what you're saying, or think you're funny, or anything else, I just know that 99% of the time most people are full of BS and just saying what they want to get someone to acknowledge them. I can say this because I do this too. People love to hear themselves talk. It's human nature. People love to hear the sound of their own voice and they love to sound like they know what they're talking about. I guess the reason I am feeling this way this morning is because I was sitting here watching the news and I'm sorry but Big Buddha on Fox 13 drives me absolutely insane. He talks and talks and talks AND TALKS, about nothing really. He just runs his mouth. So, it's not that I hate him I just know all about people who run their mouths and have nothing to say. He, in my mind, describes my quote above.

Another example? So I love late night shows. I think they're funny and comical and somewhat witty, but in all reality they think they are a lot more funny then they actually are. They also think that they are experts in every subject they talk about when in all actuality they just talk because they have a million thoughts rushing through their brains.

My goal for this week is to really think about what I say before I say it. I don't want to be the person who is so cynical because I just am sick of hearing what lame pointless people have to say. I'll be cynical because I'm experienced and know the truth from the lie. Sorry if this makes no sense. It made sense in my head as I was talking through it with myself, so who knows, maybe I'm one of the people I'm describing that I don't want to be like at all. And maybe I misunderstood the quote all together. :) Have a great weekend everyone!!

ha ha. I'm so like the person you described. Anytime I think I know something about something, I can argue my point to the grave even if i know i'm not right... because I feel like if you act like you really know what your talking about, people will believe you. I've been doing it all my life. That's why i'm such an awesome liar.... or USED to be ;)
