Notes

*organize everything

OK, this is whole new section, I will try to update this with time. I am trying to make writings of my attitudes and thought processes, as well as what lead to that way of reasoning in the long run. With time, I might (probably will) update my belief system as I get older, and maybe have insight into what my personal development looked like.

For now, things that I plan to include are, not in this particular order:

  • General life advices
  • General professional advices
  • Self care advices
  • Views on life as such
  • Stoicism and similar
  • Movie recommendations
  • Music recommendations
  • Instrument recommendations
  • Sports recommendations
  • Books recommendations
  • Various other resources that one should watch for
  • Travel recommendations

Some of advices that I would like to pass on to my (or anyone elses sons) can’t be translated very well inbetween languages, hence they will be written in original, so use Google translate or something, I can’t be bothered to do everything for you.

I draw great influences from positive and silly, yet tough man. Some examples: Dick from 3rd Rock from the Sun, or Ron Swanson from Parks and recreation, as well as Rich Cooper. Not my quotes:

Ljudi koji nemaju struke se razumeju u sve.

The truth is, the only difference between good girls and bad girls is: Good girls just haven’t been caught yet.

The woman you marry is never the same woman you divorce.

Learn from the mistakes of others, you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.

I’d wish you the best of luck but I believe luck is a concept created by the weak to explain their failures.

I’m not interested in caring about people.

Clear alcohols are for rich women on diets.

Crying: Acceptable at funerals and the Grand Canyon.

There are only three ways to motivate people: money, fear, and hunger.

Under my tutelage, you will grow from boys to men. From men into gladiators. And from gladiators into Swansons.

People are idiots.

Normally, if given the choice between doing something and nothing, I’d choose to do nothing. But I will do something if it helps someone else do nothing. I’d work all night, if it meant nothing got done.

Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.

Any dog under fifty pounds is a cat and cats are useless.

Friends: one to three is sufficient.

Fishing is for sport only. Fish meat is practically a vegetable.

The less I know about other people’s affairs, the happier I am. I’m not interested in caring about people. I once worked with a guy for three years and never learned his name. Best friend I ever had. We still never talk sometimes.

Fishing relaxes me. It’s like yoga, except I still get to kill something.

Don’t start chasing applause and acclaim. That way lies madness.

If there were more food and fewer people, this would be a perfect party.

When people get too chummy with me, I like to call them by the wrong name to let them know I don’t really care about them.

Give 100%. 110% is impossible. Only idiots recommend that.

Sting like a bee. Do not float like a butterfly. That’s ridiculous.

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish…and feed yourself. He’s a grown man. And fishing’s not that hard.

If any of you need anything at all, too bad. Deal with your problems yourselves, like adults.

One rage every three months is permitted. Try not to hurt anyone who doesn’t deserve it.

Welcome to ‘Visions of Nature.’ This room has several paintings in it. Some are big, some are small. People did them and they’re here now. I believe that after this is over, they’ll be hung in government buildings. Why the government is involved in an art show is beyond me. I also think it’s pointless for a human to paint scenes of nature when they could just go outside and stand in it. Anyway, please do not misinterpret the fact that I am talking right now as genuine interest in art and attempt to discuss it with me further. End of speech.

Do you have any history of mental illness in your family? I have an uncle who does yoga.

Busy? Impossible. I work for the government.

[After being asked if he wants a salad] Since I am not a rabbit, no I do not.

You’ve accidentally given me the food that my food eats.

[Describing his allergies] Cowardice and Weak Willed Men… and Hazelnuts.

[Describing his sexual history] Epic. and Private.

Veganism is the sad result of a morally corrupt mind. Reconsider your life.

We will get along just fine, though hopefully not too fine, because I am not looking for any new friends. End speech.

Creativity is for people with glasses who like to lie.

I would rather bleed out than sit here and talk about my feelings for 10 mins.

I prefer quality over flash – that’s why I refuse to write my signature in cursive.

Live your life how you want, but don’t confuse drama with happiness.

My son is several weeks old. He is very familiar with the sound of power tools.
