reputation
hsg At age 20, we worry about what others think of us. At 40, we don't care what they think of us. At 60, we discover they haven't been thinking about us at all. -Jock Falkson 061130

pete recently i was asked if i thought something was strange, and when i didn't, was told that that opinion was weird "because you're pete". somehow my name, to some people, carries more meaning than i know. much like how i'm not too sure what i look like physically as i spend very little time in front of mirrors, i don't know how to take it when my reputation, be it good or bad or neither or both, presumes my answers to certain questions.. 070127

hsg1437 sometimes it'sadly necessary to pretend to be someonelse so someone can see who you really are.

it's like if you're mostly pink with a little bit of red & you're standing in front of a red background... some one might insist that you are red. painting yourself green may have them pull you out of their ass ociationsuch that they put you against a white background. at this opportune time you must ungreenify yourself so they can see your true colors. pink. little bit of red.
