Amusing Wacky Holiday of the Day

So, I figured I'd try something new around these parts. You know, to prove I'm more then just a pretty YBB Houseguest!

Let's start a thread about the crazy "holidays" that some people celebrate. I use "holidays" in quotes, since I'm not sure how often they're celebrated or even how you would celebrate some of these days, but if it helps to share a story or two, then my work here will not have been in vain...

TODAY'S "HOLIDAY" - AUGUST 15th
National Failures Day

Everyone has had that one dream or goal in mind that they just fell short on. Obviously, we're not complete failures (after all, we ARE members of the best site on the Interwebs), but what moment in your life that you missed the mark on makes you wonder, "What if..."?

For me, it was not telling my first crush how I really felt about him. We went to High School together and I often wondered during that time what life would be like if we dated. I was too afraid of rejection and worried about everyone finding out that I was gay, so I never said anything to him. I sometimes wonder what my life would be like today if I had just told him the truth. So, I feel like I failed my then-future self for not exploring the possibilities of what could have been.

I won't go into too much detail because I still don't like admitting it, but along the way of medical school I did HORRIBLY on one of our boards that we need to take.

I am reassured that it will not affect my application for residency but there is always that doubt in my mind. Until the season is over, I will have that doubt. So far, so good, but I will hold all celebrations until then.

Took me awhile, because I really don't consider it failing. Just wasn't meant to be in my eyes, or I learned something from the situation.

The big failure was the time I flat out gave up on a class in my undergrad. The professor was a bitch to me, and I was an asshole straight back at her. Had to retake the class and she and I got along great, and she loved me by the end of it

The only other time I can think of was this past semester in International Economics. God help anyone that has to take that class with that Grecian midget. I took the midterm, after getting endless help from him, and felt like a complete failure during it. I failed that midterm pretty resoundingly bad. Didn't give up, still attended every single one of his office hours, and somehow managed a B+. Thank god for curves.

Other than that, I wouldn't say I've failed. I just have a rough go, sail through choppy waters, and then somehow make it out to another storm to sail through.

That one literally made me laugh, and I wasn't expecting that from our topic today.

Congrats! Sounds like you've got the attitude that most people need to have!

4'9 with enough muscles to make Ronnie from the Jersey shore quiver. And then he would always let his chest hair be exposed just a bit. After that GD midterm my friend and I went to the bar where we proceeded to chug chocolate Martinis. That next day I wanted to honestly die.

It was actually weird when I realized I couldn't think of a time. But no, my attitude is shitty during the bad event. It's a work in progress. LOL

That's a lot of muscles. Plus, the chest hair would be the step too far for me. Muscles is one thing, but the chest hair has got to go! At least keep it covered. There wouldn't be enough Chocolate Martinis in the world to get that image out of my mind!!!

He's actually ridiculously gorgeous...although, the day his biceps were bulging out of his polo and his chest-hair was Jack-In-the-bean-stalking, I admit it was overkill.

I think my concern would be that there is back hair to rival the chest hair.
