I learned that despite my other skills, I'm not worth a shot at hitting what I'm trying to hit with a hammer.

I learned about moonlight on mountain snowfields before the sun comes up.

Hey, congrats benson, maybe there's hope for the universe. Enjoy, partner, you deserve it.

Belle, I'm really sorry to hear that.
Have you posted more elsewhere on WP?
Maybe I'll go see...


Oh, I've posted a fair amount. I try not to be too negative, but it's hard for me somtimes. Perhaps you'd be interested in my Blogspot blog that I don't share with many people...you seem like a cool guy. :)

i learned about the many personalities of human beings.
that having a job from to 9 am to 3 pm can be very tiring.
many things about animals since i was doing my aquarium volunteer training today.
ordering dance costumes takes a long time and must be done all in one.
generally visitors of the aquarium will not jump down your throat for asking them some survey questions.
