Facts of Life

Instead of a normal Truth Thursday I thought I'd switch it up a bit and share some facts of life with you... and yes...

They're Random!

1. There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot.

2. Nobody will ever win the battle of the sexes. There's too much fraternising with the enemy.

3. Character is what you are. Reputation is what people think you are.

4. Drive carefully It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

5. Friends may come and go, but enemies accumulate.

Feel free to add your own random thoughts, facts, and your truth's for the day!!

This Friday and next week is Featured Writer's Week on my blog!!! I have a few interviews set up with some very fabulous people!!! If you'd like a sneak peek at whose to come here check out their blogs!

7/9 Stephanie Bowman
7/12 Karen Roderick
7/13 Dianne Salerni
7/14 Tera Lynn Childs
7/15 Tamara Heiner
7/16 Rachele Alpine

LOL! Looking forward to the interviews!

Aubrie said...

Enemies accumulate.....that's scary! I wonder how many I have?

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Oh, #5! So true, and something we hardly ever think about!

I still remember the names of the girls who were mean to me in middle school - better than the names of my friends ...

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Very true and a great reminder of some important stuff. Thanks for that. :)

Looking forward to the interviews.

Heather said...

I totally agree with number one. And I always seem to be on the wrong side of that line.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Candyland said...

I love #3! So true! And hells yeah Dianne Salerni next week!
(CL loooveess her)

Karen Lange said...

Good list! I'd add this for me to number three - Character is the real you, and is what you are at home.
Happy Thursday!
Karen :)

LOVE the fishing one! Hahaha!!! I ALWAYS feel like an idiot fishing on the shore. I can't even throw it past the waves and I really don't know when or if I've got something. I'm more of a pier/lake/pond/river fishing kinda girl. :D

aspiring_x said...

lol. nice.

Crystal Cook said...

Lol!! I love # 1. So funny, that's me, standing there looking like an idiot! Looks like you have some more awesomeness to come on your blog! Can't wait friend!!

Agnes said...

Ha-ha, they're good!!

Joanne said...

So much truth in all of these, definitely food for thought :)

Matthew Rush said...

Random!

Why do we drive on a parkway and park in the driveway?

And if the speed of light is so fast we'll never catch it, what about the speed of dark?

Dumb, I know, but fun!

Amy Saia said...

I like the car one, haha. Better drive safe today : )

Teenage Bride said...

Hello Jen, I came by to check out your blog and I absolutley love it. I too am trying to get published and it sure is one heck of a journey. Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I really appreciate your sincerity.

This list is fabulous by the way. Loved it!

<3

Summer said...

I always feel like I'm standing on the shore (or sitting in the boat) like an idiot. :-) Patience for fishing, not much...

Carolyn V. said...

Hee hee! I love #2 & #4. So true! =)

Hine sight is always 20/20. Sad but true.

Indigo said...

With each year added to our lives, we soon find time sped forward and we're are running out of what remains of time. (Hugs)Indigo

Jaydee Morgan said...

I like your lists of facts :)

And looking forward to reading your upcoming interviews!

Creepy Query Girl said...

Awesome line up! Loved the list. lol. My fact of life: There's no such thing as 'a little bit' pregnant.

Maddy said...

All these are so true :) Especially the one about character & reputation!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Beautiful little nuggets of wisdom. I cracked up at number one. Looking forward to your featured writers! The only one I know is Tamara, and she's wonderful! I'm sure the others are just as cool. I love that you have this series. It's a glowing example of paying it forward.

Laura Marcella said...

"Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker."

So true. I wish people were more responsible on the road. It's not only about you, but everyone else you're driving in front of, behind, beside. When we get in the driver's seat, each of us is responsible for one another's lives, that everyone gets where they need to be safely.

Christina Lee said...

*GRIN* I love all of those!

Jemi Fraser said...

Love the fishing one! :) Thanks for the smiles.

elizabethre said...

Hi Jen,
I love your list, but numbers 1 and 2 are hilarious.
Hubby is a 'great' fisherman and we fraternise a lot :)

If it's dead stop beating it :)

Lisa Gail Green said...

Great words of wisdom, all. I look forward to the interviews.

Diane J. said...

These are great Jen. I'm still laughing over #2. Number 4 is so true.

I will add: Somedays you visit the outhouse and somedays you are the outhouse.

Sandy Shin said...

I love these facts! So true. Love #3 and #5! :)

Abby said...

These are pretty funny!

tywo said...

These are so true!!

Amanda Sablan said...

I love #5. Enemies sure do accumulate...

I'm looking forward to the interviews. You have so many! :O

The English Writer said...

Number 4 definately got me thinking xx ps. thanks for the thumbs up, looking forward to Monday!!! xx

Melissa said...

Oh you make me grin like an idiot! I love all of these, they are absolutely hilarious and true!

I don't have any brilliant facts of life to add because I keep trying to think of some but yours keep popping into my head. You've eclipsed anything I could come up with so instead of adding, I will just bow to your brilliance.

*Bow*

Patti said...

Love the fishing line, because it's so true.

Meredith said...

Too much fraternizing with the enemy--love it. These are great little pieces of wisdom.

The Words Crafter said...

Oh, I LOVE these! Thanks for the chuckle!

Kimberly Franklin said...

I love your facts. None of my own to add. But you did get that silly "facts of life" song stuck in my head. LOL.

Guinevere said...

Love these facts! Especially the one about enemies. lol. So true!

Samantha Bennett said...

Great quotes! Here's one of my faves:
"Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point."
C. S. Lewis

*snort* haha! So I'm late to the party, I still enjoyed it :)

Random thought: Pickles are one of the most amazing vegetables ever. (Or are they fruit? Or are they something in a category of their own. Whatever they are, they're delicious)

Medeia Sharif said...

I returned to tell you that I have a blog award for you.
