we are meant to test our own limits, to push ourselves harder/further. problem is, when testing someone else's limits, you never know when the next test/push is going to push them over the edge.

The early bird catches the worm; a stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we haven't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to ‘seize the day'. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying.

#86 - professional tennis match

legg-mason tennis classic in dc; i took my 6-year-old cousin to the national parks and recreation family day, so it kind of counts. we watched part of one of the qualifying round don't find tennis very exciting, which is it was hot. really hot. (when it was really quiet, he said "this is so boring!" really loud. haha.) sadly i didn't take any pictures. but we, minus little ones, plus beer, are going sat night for semifinals. so maybe i'll take pictures then.

i also got a haircut, but it wasn't exactly new, so i'm going to target this goal for september/october after i have some more funds.
