Lesson Learned

I do this occasional thing where I’ll tweet the random terms people enter in search engines that bring them to my blog. I think it’s really interesting/hilarious to see not only what people are looking for, but also to see what Old Man Internets thinks my blog is about. (Because, honestly, for the most part I have no idea.)

I recently tweeted about how a few people had found this little site by searching for “weird life lessons.”

Is there anything more poetic about that? I often have friends who ask me what I would write a book about (if I ever get that sort-of-joking-but-it-would-be-beyond-if-it-actually-happened book deal), and usually I just say something to the effect of, “How to awkwardly navigate life? Funny stories? I don’t know.”

But what I think I’ve been trying to say is, “Weird life lessons.”

Which leads me to my new idea. I think pretty much all of my posts can be summed up into a lesson learned.

Sometimes you have to let yourself off the hook.

It’s possible to make someone’s day with a slab of chicken and the leftover Dorito crumbs in the bag.

You never know when your personal rant will become a chorus.

I think it’s time to start making some of these implied lessons bolder statements. I LOVE bold statements.

For those of you new to the blog, this is not the first time I have incorporated life lessons into the blog. So from now on, they’re just going to be my sum-up point at the end of each post.

Bonus for you: If you don’t want to read the whole post, just skip to the last sentence! Lesson. Learned. (SEE WHAT I DID THERE???)

So let’s go!

Lesson learned: It’s good to have direction. (Even if all you’re really doing is copying yourself.)
