    Living haphazardly is stupid.

    Actually being hit by a car took some of the fun out of the whole playing pedestrian chicken thing for me.

    I think I'm just one of those freaks of nature that has always had a deep conviction that bad things can happen to me. Why should they not?
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I could see how, I mean it's not really chicken because half the time I don't see the car I often am like "It's safe to cross just to jump back to the curb at the last minute" sometimes when I'm bored or just having a bad day I will.

    I'm convinced I'm not dying til I'm 81 I know it's not logical but it's a feeling I have this isn't to say I can't be in a coma or hooked up to machines when I'm 30.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Murphy's Law. I feel it applies to me too, more often than not.

    Am I haphazard enough? Heh.

    I married a guy and then helped convince him to leave the only job he ever knew (which he owned 20% of) to sell his shares and open his own place;

    For most of my working life I've preferred the relative freedom of working as a waitress at odd hours to the slavery of regular office work which is way more "safe" (flat hourly pay, normal 9 - 5 hours, benefits like health insurance and 401K *yawn*);

    I left my husband because I wasn't thrilled with him, never loved him, etc. but it's not like we had lots of arguments or couldn't stand each other or anything;

    I became involved with a British guy, knowing how difficult it would be;

    I moved 40 minutes away (and signed a year long lease) from my family and work so that I could be only 1 hour from where said British guy would be staying for 5 months, at a time when I thought we may never actually be together, I only held hope;

    I just quit one of my two jobs so that I could have more time to be with this British guy for the three weeks he's visiting me starting next week;

    Life is for the living, don't be so scared!

    do you see yourself living haphazardly enough? why/why not?

    No.. I don't do that... and, further, don't allow anyone else to make me. Hubby tends to and I balk rather loudly if he tries to involve me in it.
    Why/why not? Because I don't like risk.... much prefer safety.

    what I had originally stated may have come off as 'thrill seeking' but not all risks are 'thrill seeking' ... there are risks you can take and enjoy a new sustained level of the haphazardly.

    I had a shrink tell me that I need to do more stupid things like that. Seriously.
    I'm not a procrastinator. I'm a long-term planner.

    why would he suggest that?

    when my sister was younger, her shrink told her to swear... but my Christian parents were not a fan of this.
