    When I start to date a woman, I want her to love me IMMEDIATELY. That never happens. “You’re going too fast,” and she ends it.

    When I started a novel when I was younger, I wanted to finish it the next day. When I start a business, I want to sell it a day later. Count the riches. 

    When I started graduate school, I was already planning how I was going to be the fastest PhD in history.

    Around the time that I had initially planned on receiving that Phd , I ended up getting thrown out. “Lack of maturity,” the letter said.

    I hate the concept of “news jacking” which is what I’m about to do here.

    We all grew up on Robin Williams so this is very sad. I know he did a ton of movies, etc but the real thing that stands out for someone my age is Mork & Mindy.

    All my friends knew how great that show was. We’d all quote it on the school bus the next day. None of us knew or even understood the insane amount of talent that went into that show.
