Life Shouldn't Be Rocket Science

This post is inspired by the 2007 Sundance movie 'Rocket Science.' A movie about a boy trying to figure out life - a boy who stutters [a lot] and decides to join the debate team because of a girl. I only saw the movie once, but the more I've thought about it (the characters, the plot, the writing), I've become rather fond of it.

Lately, I've been in a life funk and I can't figure out what I can do to get out of it. So I thought I would expand on a few things that I wish were a little less complicated...things that shouldn't be rocket science:

WORK - just show up, sit down, think, do, make decisions, follow through and do whatever it is that needs to be done in order for you to do your job (just be ethical about it = don't lie).

DATING
- I don't even have the energy to expound. It should just be easier.

GETTING SLIM & TRIM - if a person is exercising regularly and not over-indulging (or even indulging) on their favorite foods, getting in shape should be a cinch. Sadly I think genetics somehow get involved and mess the simplicity of it all. Thanks Mom. Thanks Dad.

GETTING YOUR DEPOSIT BACK - this is on behalf of my dear friend Noelle. If a tenant keeps up her end of a contractual agreement (contrary to what the landlord and the landlord's lover says) the tenant should rightfully receive the deposit back.
