    Default Last week, I left a note on Laura's desk…

    …it said " I love you, sign Anonymous friend "

    Turns out she's smarter than I thought she was. She knows I wrote it, now the whole class does too and I am alone during couples skate, when she skates by with some guy on her arm. But I know that I'll forget the look of pity and disgrace, when I'm living in my solar dorm in a platform in space.

    It's gonna be the future soon, I won't always be this way.
    When the things that make me weak and strange get engineered away.
    It's gonna be the future soon, never seen it quite so clear
    When my heart is breaking I can close my eyes, it's already here.

    Girls don't like guys that leave quiet notes. They want the alpha male (most of the time) and they usually respond better to a man who's more direct.

    My friend, anonymous notes are creepy.

    If you like a girl, just go up and ask her out.

    Yeah, you might get shot down, but if so, at least you have the satisfaction of having had the courage to try.

    Reminds me of that bit with Lacey Chabert in Not Another Teen Movie.

    "What kind of girl do you think I am? I don't just have sex with every guy who hands me a letter.

    "I give them hand jobs."

    I'll probably be some kind of scientist. Building inventions in my space lab in space. I'll end world hunger I'll make dolphins speak. Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends. Perfecting my warrior robot race. Building them one laser gun at a time. I will do my best to teach them. About life and what it's worth. I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth

    Best part of the whole song? " Building invention in my space lab in space "

    You can almost hear him cap " IN SPACE "

    The note thing is a bad idea, true, but I think an even worse idea was saying "I love you" in the note.

    It just takes it to a whole other level of creeping her out. If you have to leave her notes, just make them a little cooler - like "You look nice today," or something like that.

    It'd still be creepy, but it would be so much less creepy that she might not even really care too much about the notes.

    Judging by the rhyming structure, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say The Ray is quoting some more song lyrics, and not transcribing an actual event.

    If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.

    The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering
    experience…I will dispense this advice now.

    Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.

    But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….

    You’re not as fat as you imagine.

    Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum.

    The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

    Do one thing everyday that scares you. Sing. Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. Floss. Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
    you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself.

    Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how. Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements. Stretch. Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
    wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t. Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.

    Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.

    Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own. Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room. Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.

    Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

    Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

    Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft. Travel. Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders. Respect your elders.

    Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out.

    Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

    Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

    But trust me on the sunscreen…

    He posted the lyrics to a crappy song by a crappy sensitive singer type. Thanks for wasting my time when I thought this was an advice thread.

    Don't worry, just don't do it again. Or you could've appologised and left it be.












    Go to the butcher's shop. Get 2 cow eyes and leave them on her bed with a "I've got moo eyes on you" note.
