Wisdom, Grasshopper, Wisdom

December 10 – Wisdom Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? (Author: Susannah Conway)

I usually associate wisdom with people like...well, like my parents, or the Dalai Lama, or Oprah, not with myself, so this is a toughie. It's difficult to assess this question because I made so many difficult decisions this year but I'm still not really sure if they were the right decisions. I think that leaving my restaurant job in New York (which was the impetus for this blog, actually) was a wise decision. Sure, I made less money than I needed or ever thought I could live on, but I gained the freedom to negotiate my time on my own terms. If I hadn't made the decision to quit that job I probably wouldn't have decided to move to LA as I would have felt committed to the job (isn't that absurd?). And I'm glad that I came here...I think. No! I am glad. This is very good for me.

The other wisest decision was to start watching Breaking Bad. Just kidding, I'm not that pathetic [yes, yes I am].


PS: Most UNWISE decision of 2010? Eating a macaroni grilled cheese. Macaroni and cheese, between bread, grilled. For lunch. Today.

A... I'm not going to lie to you. That sandwich picture just almost made me vomit. I'm sitting nice and cozy in bed on a Sunday morning and I feel as though my eyes and gag reflex have just been accosted.
