This is a Tyler story..
This semester I am taking french composition as the last requirement to completing my degree. This is difficult for me because I am used to being fairly good at expressing myself in English in written form and its fairly frustrating not being able to do that as well in french. Anyone who tries to learn a new language I feel your pain. However most of my frustations come from the fact that I used to be much better at french and I just let it go but anyways this is not what I wanted to write about. What I want to write is what I was writing in french but could do much better at in english so here it is: Lying, is it a trap or a necessary evil? I lie literally all the time mainly to accomadate other people. Like when people want to know what I want to do but I don't want to be bossy so I try and make them chose. I'm sure this is a very irrritating quality about myself but I somehow can't get past it. I have good intentions in doing it but at the same time its frustating for both people. Also there are the kind of lies you tell because you don't want to be a bitch like saying you like someones cooking when you don't. Would it really be better to just be honest all the time? Cause sometimes I say stuff and I'm just like wow, that not how I really feel at all and then I have to correct myself which probably seems pretty strange. Or I'm with people and I lie so I fit in better but really thats not who I am at all. I guess this isn't that much easier in english cause I still don't know what I'm trying to get at. I'm sure there is a good life lesson somewhere in there like I need to be more honest with myself or something silly like that.
