my friend Jimmy (who, by the way, is absolutely AMAZING) says that if you title a post with "Read this!" people are more likely to read and respond. Anyways, recently I have been coming upon little jewels of wisdom on the internet from my friends. Things they don't say in normal conversation, but things that they think about. And I'm constantly amazed by it!
There are lots of people I don't know who also have some great thoughts out there. The wealth of wisdom you can glean from the internet is incredible. I suggest you try it. Go online, and read someone's facebook notes(other than mine) or someone's blog (other than mine).
You will probably have to wade through online ipod shuffle quizzes, how well do you know me quizzes, etc, but there will be some real nuggets of gold there! (in fact, if you look between the lines of the quizzes, you can find gold there also, you just have to dig harder).
The point is, there are so many people in this world, each with individual thoughts and opinions. Look into them! Not to change what you think, but to give yourself a better understanding of our society. That's one of the wonders of the internet, that everyone can be heard!
