That first “REAL” (i.e., post-college) job…So, let’s say, as one fresh out of college, your individuality and superiority are as lofty as a skyscraper. Hope you have a trustworthy repelling partner as an anchor, because that’s a long way down….

Especially at age 5

I ran across a YouTube video recently, and it reminded me of how a 5 year-old might reenact a Barney episode, but in slow motion. Picture Barney jumping up and down on a bed throwing money up into the air while spanking another individual’s butt….Yep, pretty bad, and what a great example, huh? The only thing that was missing in this video clip was the Barney outfit. When a “fresh-out-of-college” individual acts like a child, particularly when employed in a pretty decent job and a graduate of an esteemed institution, this makes me wonder about the future of our nation….See where I am going here, folks? This is our nation’s future!   I would be interested in your thoughts, readers. Any comments?

Some favorite quotes to end today’s entry:

Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. (Charles R. Swindoll)

The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life. (Plato)

Author: The Ordinary Compass

Hello and welcome to this collection of anecdotes from my years of ordinary moments and timeless memories. I try to share a positive message, as well as lessons learned which have helped me appreciate life. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple (positive) gesture. I write in the hope that I can make a difference and you as the reader will also see the possibilities that surround you, and as well that the little things do make a big difference. I’m originally from New Jersey, have traveled and lived on both the east and west coasts, and have happily been a Virginia resident for more than ten years. I have been married for over ten years; my wife is my anchor and has kept my compass correct. I have always been an individual who likes the outdoors. I like taking my time to think about the outcomes of situations. I enjoy philosophy and love science. I am no stranger to high adrenaline activities and love everything that revolves around water. Thank you for stopping by and feel free to comment, re-blog (with credit), or just read along! –Robert Konz.
