You know what I think is a bunch of crap? When people say they know their limits. Scenario: in your opinion, someone drinks a lot. When you bring it up with that person, they say 'oh, don't worry, I know my limits'. Ever heard it? Someone wants to do something extreme (say, skydiving or piercing something really cool) and says the same thing. And regarding the two girls who died from tainted E tabs (one is Angela, although the newspaper didn't name names, they said the girl was from FE. Saturday's FE Times) whose friends said 'She knows her limits and would have never OD'd'. You know how people know their limits? By testing them. How else would you know where a boundary is other than finding it? (Don't bring up the globe/maps) How do you know you're ABOUT to consume too much alcohol/drugs?
By having done it, that's how.
I just think it's a load of crap when people say things like that because it's a cover-up for mistakes. If you've made a mistake, you better be ready to own up to it. I make a lot of mistakes. And I don't blame anyone for them unless I have good reason.
A lot of mistakes come from assumptions.
Haven't posted in a while and a rant was in order. Reading that article on Saturday made me think of this.
52 days until I turn 20!

I thought it was quite a revelation myself. Give boredom the credit. Really, I thought I was such a genius for about half an hour.
