30+ Random Thoughts from SHABL


About 3 days ago, I started carrying a pen and notebook with me to record random thoughts that I catch with a net in the ever flowing stream of consciousness going through our minds…

  • Sh!ttiest bikes in front of most expensive apartments
  • Never make decision about a jacket while indoors
  • Walk fast when tired in strange cities
  • Meet fun people in your home town in tourist areas
  • If you put a birdhouse on every tree in your backyard, you will have a small village living there from luxury penthouse to ghetto
  • Every exam is basically a hard question with tests of knowledge from previous lessons, they just re-arrange things, be ready
  • Partying in Amsterdam is dif than waking up in Amsterdam
  • Pass top of cap when sharing drinks and you drink from bottle
  • Adsense optimize old high traffic SE pages.
  • Know your pocket contents when traveling
  • Being over prepared is worse than under
  • Eye of beholder dictates reality
  • Day on train beats day in rain
  • Freedom to choose or financial noose, choice is yours
  • Happiness is making a dream reality
  • Being too cold is worse than too hot
  • Being available is great but what is too available?
  • What you want and what is good for you is often different but what is good for you anyways?
  • Life is too short to shiver
  • Even old people come to Amsterdam to see what is cracking, why aren’t you?
  • 2.5+ billion women in the world, how can you marry just one?
  • When good things happen go with, forget all other plans and run with it.
  • Notice signs and follow them, they will always be subtle
  • Plans suck, you know outcome, no plan, anything can happen
  • If warp speed existed, how would you spend your day?
  • Cities are like life, better to know somethings or cities well then nothing about lots
  • Life is the best choose your own adventure story ever
  • Only drink in public
  • Forget a honeymoon and use that cash to have your 1st child in another country so they get another nationality
  • Dogs like heat vents¬†because the house is too cold when you leave
  • If you want honest advice, ask a stranger
  • Never book a flight when bored

As always, we here at SHABL wish you the very best.

Tips hat,

P.S: Off to wander the streets with a swagger and a smile.

    I’m game — but only if they make birdhouses for pelicans — and upscale ones at that.
