It's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.



If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.

Here are three images from a new series called “The World Projects Around Me.” The top images on each map are the same  Equirectangular projection. Then on the bottom, each projection gets closer and closer to the subject at hand:

  • Chart 1 is Los Angeles and projections go from a North America projection to a Continental United States projection to a California projection to a Southern California perspective.
  • Chart 2 is Johannesburg and goes from an Africa Equiconic to a more dramatic African projection to a South African projection to a fun upside projection centered around Johannesburg.
  • Chart 3 is Tokyo and starts with a Asia-centric projection, followed by a North Asia projection, a Japan projection and a very slightly different Tokyo region projection.

If you want to see your home city, please let me know!

No one gives a shit what you look like. Now I’m not saying being a fat slob doesn’t raise some eyebrows in disgust, but if you kick as much ass as possible in the weight room and conditioning field AND start OWNING the fuck out of your given “sport” (you better start competing and making your training count), you will not only LOOK better but you will feel better. People are not attracted to vanity – they are attracted to confidence and passion. No one owns a room by the way they look; it’s how they carry themselves.

I wonder if anyone ever looks at me while I’m doing something and thinks I’m pretty. Because I do that all the time to people. 

Please don’t expect me to always be good and kind and loving. There are times when I will be cold and thoughtless and hard to understand.

The things we respond to at twenty are not necessarily the same things we will respond to at forty and vice versa. This is true in books and also in life.
