I was in gifted classes since elementary school. Got a few D's in middle school. I just didn't care, was lazy, and didn't realize how much my education at that time affected my future. I was smart enough to make up for it, but now realize that if you want to make something great out of yourself, ...

These brands don't understand that their bread and butter is that they are expensive (mildly), and that they are popular because the girl with money has it. Once it gets to a point that you start marketing to a more middle class base (outlets and department stores), then the people with money will f...

If you're hanging out trips, I had to sell my flats boat and could use some charity :lol:
I've always liked chasing reds, but most of my fishing pals are more into offshore fishing. I spent the last few years trying to learn how to consistently put fish in the boat with purely artificial. Af...

Make sure your concrete (if you have concrete) is level before buying anything. I bought floating wood to install and when I pulled my carpet, we realized how uneven the floor was. Fixed it as best I could with self leveling concrete mix (not cheap). Still had a lot of clacking after I put the floo...

We've become more medically knowledgeable. I think people are more comfortable using the actual terms (although this is an acronym). Plus people are living longer in general so the disease has more time to rear its ugly head without being hidden by other ailments or causes of death. This has increa...

Go production enhancement if you can. Its a pretty shitty lifestyle for 3 years or so, but after that your ticket is punched. I've got completion experience, but I lack the reservoir knowledge that is gained in the pumping side.
And I'm not knowledgeable enough to say the gulf is 100% going to ...

I don't know anything about the holdings of these companies, but I can tell you they won't last like someone has previously said. Women change their mind fast. It used to be coach, then micheal kors. Its going to be something else soon. They don't want what everyone already has. You need a crystal ...

I only wear black shoes if I have to. Brown shoes just look better to me. Now square toed shoes, black or red dress shirts, shiny solid color ties, that looks like someone who doesn't normally wear nice clothes. Obvious exceptions and some people just have different styles. But I think it looks ...

I'm not a parent yet, so I won't act like an expert. But, I've got a close friend who allowed their daughter to start sleeping in the bed with them for the same exact reason. Now, she is 2 and cannot sleep on her own. She is in the bed every night. My son is due any day now, and I may have a hug...

I learned how different north of I10 is when I moved to Baton Rouge and said the word Parrain, and I got blank stares.

I've got Allstate. I dropped them for Geico a while back before I bought my house. They started telling me all the extras they could take off to get my price down. I didn't even realize I was paying for them and could get rid of them. When I bought my house, the bundle (and a different agent) made i...

He should have never dropped an F-bomb for sure. And he probably was pushing it on purpose which is shitty.
But at the same time, that's some pretty seriously terrible customer service. I expect to call in and the agency know why they are billing me for stuff. I get this all the time with my in...

Point Aux Chenes and north of Lake Boudreaux stay that clear a lot. Almost everywhere else in the Terrebonne area seems to get dirty quickly. I used to see tons from my poling platform.

I've got the orange floating net from academy. The folding ones seem like a pain and flimsy.

I try to get any fish by the lip, but if it isn't working, I just grab the ne...

Don't get me wrong, I know cigs are terrible for you even outside of cancer. I do not want to go for a run after I smoked a few cigarettes the night before. But I think if you smoke a cig once in a blue moon, I don't think you aren't really going to have that many problems. It's when people truly ...

Even keeping a boat on the lift will speed up the wear and tear on a boat. At least in salt water. If you leave the boat in the water, it will have a brown line around it unless you have a good bottom paint job. Everything metal, even aluminum and stainless, will oxidize faster. I know if I'm sp...
