Well yesterday was as close to death as I want to get for the next 50-60 years.I was riding home on my bike from the gym yesterday and was waiting at the cross walk till it was safe to cross.Well then came the red light,so I crossed the street. Someone honked & waved at me so I waved back,then I decided to turn back to see who it was waving at me(I assumed it was someone I went to high school with)No sooner after I turned back a car came speeding through the red light right where I would've been if I continued to cross.So literally I almost died or at the least I would've suffered some very serious bodily injuries.
After this experience I'm not going to stress myself out over my unemployment problem,stuff like that doesn't seem as important after an experience like this. Just goes to show you that life is short and that you should grab "Every Piece of Happiness You Can"
Whoa, glad you're OK man.
Whoa....Something like that does put things in perspective. Glad you're ok.

I'm not joking when I say this after almost dying my unemployment doesn't seem as important.I mean I'll never stop searching since I want to move out into my own apartment and stuff.But I've got a college education,with good enough work experience so with patience something will come up.But still worrying about something like that after an experience like this makes no sense
...watch me reap of what I sow....
and BOOM goes the dynomite!
hey man.. that has to be tough
some people dont realize how precious life really is until they lose someone close to them, or they almost lose their own life.

"Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21
"I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
