    Jennifer Lawrence really?

    I don't know, i guess any fan is a good fan but Jennifer Lawrence? I dont know if id let that be known. She's kinda weird....not in a good way.

    Well at least it wasnt Jared "30 seconds to mars" Leto. THAT would have been embarassing.

    Dude, you're kind of critical.

    Jennifer Lawrence and Jared Leto are both great actors, and I would be proud to be associated with either of them.

    But my ACHIEVEMENT was doing this phony send-up of one of the most tweeted and instantly viral photos of all time only MINUTES after it appeared.

    Hey, it might be my peak.

    It's all downhill from here, man.
  6. It may not seem like much, but I talked myself out of committing suicide. I feel like I've done a lot of cool things I wouldn't be able to if it weren't for being alive. But presently I can't think of anything because I'm constantly being compared to more successful people. I've got a lot of life left to live and a lot of school and experiences to go through so maybe once I get there I'll feel like I'm somewhere.
  7. Quitting drinking 31 years ago. Going back to school & getting my HS diploma @ 35. Getting my honors diploma from college @ 40. Getting my blue belt @ 58. Getting my '68 B15N @ 57 (sold my original B15 in '78 to pay a fine).

    Up until recently, it had been a very long time since I had felt a strong sense of achievement. The achievement that broke that streak was me finally being able to afford my own place without any sort of monetary support (be it through my parents or through some number of roommates). I feel very accomplished coming home at the end of the day and walking into my own place.
  10. My children. Nothing else comes close to greatness after that.

    Making it to the yard every friggen day..
  12. Got into pharmacy school and graduated, all of which would have been much easier if I weren't a raging alcoholic back then.
  13. I made it through another day without strangling any of my employees.

    Nothing. I've achieved nothing.

    And now you all know why i sound so bitter about everything.

    Who am i kidding i was bitter about everything when i was 15. That's probably what led me to fail in life in fact.

    It's like the chicken or the egg. Was i bitter before i began failing at life or did failing at life make me bitter. I mean my teen years were so much failure already. Actually, i was failing in kindergarten according to the reports of my behavior i found in an old box in the attic.

    I guess i found my greatest achievement, not throwing myself off a bridge yet. I'm pretty proud of that.

    Though i'm not sure if that's more insulting to him or grace jones.

    I will say this, Grace Jones had (possibly still has) a great body...a bit muscular but... while i didn't care for her facial features, her body could have convinced me...if you know what i mean.

    I survived and actually was able to become competent "pulling Chain" at a Saw Mill operation. Second worse job I ever had and since I am not a jock type of guy it was not easy. Guys would start work after I came on there at 7 am and walk off by or before the first break. Don't come to work hung over not even slightly, you'll end up puking your guts out.

    I never experienced the Green Chain and I don't think I could have cut it.

    I would say finishing my bachelors by 2 days after I turned 23 and paying for it all in cash from my own hard work, taking zero loans in the process and of course I am gracious of the free financial aid I received due to being in a "poor" bracket. Then instead of hanging around my hometown of Oregon with zero chances of anything happening there , I moved out here to Hollywood not knowing a soul and struggling but making my way which doesn't mean I will be famous but with my drive I think I will run into something that will bring me success in some form or another be it musical or otherwise.
