the last time i went to hawaii i was broke, unemployed, and unbeknownst to me, about to head off on a journey with a gazillion dollar company that would change my life forever.
not because of the job, technically, but because of what the job did.
it moved me to san francisco
and there i met people who i never thought id meet.
one being a brain surgeon who i dated for a while.
is there anything sexier than a smart person?
learning things triggers a part of my brain that makes my heart beat faster which is interesting because i never really liked school.
maybe it was the context. when youre bowling, which was my first date with this brain surgeon, you dont expect to learn about some of the mysteries of the human condition
whereas in a classroom, often times you cant wait to leave, in part, because you are judged in there. especially me.
no matter what great ideas i would bring to the reading, i almost always had a teacher who would insult me for what i wrote down.
just be yourself is the mantra every kid is instructed. be creative. think outside the box.
but in school i was literally punished time and again for not writing down what jimmy and johnnie and monica would write down. so school was always a bummer for me. even though i loved learning.
anyways i need to sit by a pool for a few days.
