In General Am I that selfish and/or arrogant? Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #14 New 01-17-2005 02:50 PM
I ponder this everyone now and then. Often times, you'll find me posting my opinion on the boards and it seems like I'll chime in on just about anything. I once told someone that I open my big mouth in the hope that one day I can look back and see if I have had much of a change over the years.

Re-reading my last entry, I had to stop and wonder if I'm not just a little too full of myself or if I'm actually right. One could come to the conclusion that: being 2nd kyu, 3 years in aikido and a general forte for butting in... that I "tell" people too much instead of just listening and learning for my own sake. I justify it by looking for the faults in others.

Now, I wasn't lying about the situation... he was trying to go too fast. But still.

Someone once said about this or a similar topic: If you have to ask, you probably aren't. Meaning, that I even ask this question of myself should be proof enough I'm not THAT selfish or arrogant. But still...

By the way: Interesting news... Leslie and I got a dog this weekend. He's a two year old Golden Retriever/Mutt named Chet. Sweet boy, house broken, calm but energetic. Bad news is... I'm inheriting my mother's beagle,"Emma." She's one year old, HYPER!! and we're gonna have to house break that one. God help us.
