I like making mistakes. I just hate when it takes me a while to notice that I’ve made one.
WisdomDump: Red Bull Edition
Homework is busy-work when you don’t give a shit. I would be a straight-A student if I took classes on subjects that I were actually passionate about. BUT we all have to do what we gotta do. My thought process is this: If you’re going to spend time not doing your homework or jumping through bullshit hoops in order to get that grade-point average or degree, then spend it adding to...

WisdomDump: Bloated Edition
A good rule of thumb in my eyes goes along the lines of this: Things that are worth your time and effort are a little complex. This complexity yields a certain quality that results in something unforgettable and irreplaceable. but at the same time, all good things should have a simple start.

Friendship is an involuntary reflex. You just can’t help it.– Ted Mosby, How I Met Your Mother
WisdomDump: Treadmill Edition
When there’s talk about game, I always find myself amused. The game you play should reflect the person that you want to be, not the person she wants you to be. Some guys are pretty good at playing a type of game that can appeal to almost every girl but you can only play that game for so long. If they don’t appreciate your game, take the hint and find someone who does.
WisdomDump: Spring Edition
There are two ways that you make the friends that you have. The first venue is the social institutions that you find yourself in that revolve around school, sports, religion, or hobbies. The people that you meet here share particular interests, desires, or philosophies that make befriending these individuals ideal. The second venue is happy coincidence. The people that you meet here may or may...
WisdomDump: Cliche Edition
Actions speak louder than words. Don’t tell people what your plans are, show them instead. If you are unhappy about something, change it. If you are stressed or pressured, suck it up and push through. If you are feeling angry, then just relax. If someone wants to know, they’ll ask you. In that case, go ahead and tell them what they want to know.
WisdomDump: Childish Edition
“The only thing I put before me is do-re” Childish Gambino, Bandcamp The way I see it, you should be selfish in your ambitions but willing to share yourself with anyone that gives a damn.
WisdomDump: Visitors Center Edition
Focus on making yourself happy whether it be Faith, Sports, Hobbies, or Art. When you’re happy, other people are bound to notice. At that point, it doesn’t matter what happens. Nothing can bring you down. I guess all I’m trying to say is: Be in control of the decisions that affect your emotions. There are should only be a few certain people that you give the ability to...
We all have to decide, for ourselves, how much sin we can live with.– Nucky Thompson, Boardwalk Empire
WisdomDump: Studio Edition
I took a couple dance classes today at a studio near my house. Although the classes were independent of each other, they both had the same lesson: Don’t worry about copying the choreography that you see. Just learn the the rhythm and groove with it. Life seems pretty black and white at times. You learn about what is right and what is wrong. What may be right to others, won’t...
WisdomDump: New Year Edition
The New Year always brings together a few things: 1. Families and Friends 2. Arguable music performances on TV 3. New Beginnings I personally like the last thing on the list. Before I go about compiling my list of things to do in 2012, I told myself to remember a few things. The end of year isn’t just about making amends for the way you’ve hurt people or let them down....
WisdomDump: Bro Edition
Home isn’t where you’re comfortable or familiar with streets, houses, or spots to kick it. Home is where family is. Lately, I’ve noticed that my family is no longer measured by blood. My family are those that I have been blessed with through laughs, trials, failure, and success. My family are those who I spend the best times of my life with.
I used to think that I was a very considerate person and that, that would be enough to have a good relationship. Little did I know, I had a very different definition of being considerate and thoughtful than I do now. It isn’t about just making sure they’re happy even if you aren’t. It isn’t just helping them get to their goals before you get to yours. It isn’t...

WisdomDump: Sunday Morning Run Edition
A reputation is the one thing that man can truly call his own. Growing up can mean different things to different people. To me, it means choosing which things to change and which to keep in order to be the gentleman that you want to be. Whether it be habits, vices, philosophies, or beliefs, it’s your choice. But at the end of the day, you also make the decision of what you let...
WisdomDump: New Lamp Edition
As I’ve been going through the motions of building my future career foundation, I have also been taking inventory of the things that are most important to me. I have come to a few conclusions: I enjoy my family, friends, and anyone willing to have a decent conversation. I enjoy hosting good company over food, beverages, and holiday spirit. I enjoy the weekly spring cleaning of my room...
WisdomDump: Past Edition
Growing up shows you all the things that are truly important in yourself and other people. I’ve been blind to so many things. My lesson in this case is: Don’t be afraid to have patience. If the saying is true, then maybe good things really do come to those who wait.
WisdomDump: 2nd Gear Edition
I keep hearing/reading “Being a kid at heart” as a self-description followed by a comment on a 90’s cartoon or an on-going hobby. To me, being a kid at heart means to still have dreams. When you’re a kid, you have a million dreams without stopping to think about which one you want to accomplish first. The questions of whether or not they will actually become a reality...
reannefranco: I don’t know why I am always wanting for more. Honestly, I am happy with everything in my life. All other complications are there for a learning experience. I need to learn how to appreciate things before they are gone.
WisdomDump: Overdue Edition
I’ve learned that being a Gentleman means being able to make others feel safe, comfortable, and confident in your capabilities. This means keeping composure, taking appropriate risks, and admitting to mistakes. Being a man has nothing to do with exterior, preferences, or tendencies - but all to do with self-confidence and courtesy. A little grammar doesn’t hurt either.

WisdomDump: Sidewalk Edition
It’s true that a drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts. It is also true that a drunk man’s actions are those of a fool’s. There is no excuse to ever put the integrity of a gentleman on hold. But if you do, the only way to redeem yourself is handle the situation like a gentleman; apologize, take the consequences and learn the lesson.

WisdomDump: Best Friend & Wheel Chair Edition
When you find someone that truly fascinates you, things come naturally. Don’t question why she treats her new man the way she does. She probably feels something that she didn’t feel with you. Relationships shouldn’t be based off of the couples you see in movies. Do things that you want to do to show how you feel about her and not things that you think you should do. ...

WisdomDump: Inflatable Mattress Edition
I’m just a confident individual that is constantly looking for opportunities to better myself in order to get the attention of someone who is as equally as confident and constantly looking for opportunities to better herself. She needs to be strong-willed and determined so that she doesn’t need me to take care of her. Rather she wants me to. In the words of Passion: “Let me cater to my girl.”
