BC Bloggers Meme: Top 5 Craziest Things You've Done and the Lessons You've Learned from Them

Ain't it crazy that I suggested this topic, and now I'm struggling to write something?
I'm sure I have done at least 5 crazy things in my life. We all do. But nonetheless, we learned a thing or two from each of them. Our mistakes don't define us, they help mold us. After all, experience is the best teacher.



Although my parents are strict, they are never to blame for my crazy actions. They never ran short of explanations on their being strict. They constantly remind us, even up to now, that they love us, and that their decisions are for our best. After all, they have our best interest at heart. 

I never knew all these before. 
Or maybe I do, I just didn't understand then, because I was too busy thinking about ME, MYSELF, and I.
But don't think too dark of me. I think that was a part of being a teenager. And I wasn't all rebellious; I just have a crazy side that like to explore limits.
We all do.

And I'm gonna share with you the top 5 craziest things I have done which in one way or another taught me important lessons.

FIVE:
I pricked a cord on our wall with a thumb tack.
During my first tries, the cord resisted the tack. But because of my persistence, the tack got through the cord, and came the biggest shock, ELECTRIC SHOCK!
Haha. I almost fell of our stairs.
LESSON: Curiosity may sometime kill.

FOUR:
Wanting to give myself a "new-look", I grabbed the scissors and cut my bangs without any forethought or anything. Since it was my first time, it was shorter than I intended, I came to school that morning with  BANGS and a BANG! :)))
LESSON: It's important to think before I leap.

THREE:
I kept eating even after I got full that I ended up throwing up.
LESSON: We do have limits.

TWO:
I ran away from home.
LESSON: We underestimate our parents love for us. We affect them the most.

ONE:
I kept my pregnancy from my family out of fear.
LESSON: Our family will always be there for us no matter what. They will always be the first ones to accept and love us through whatever. And although we reap what we sow, God will always have unfailing love for us.

How about you?
I'm sure you have your own fair share of crazy stuffs like pulling someone else's hair, changing your Facebook birthday to today, conniving with your cousin to change your Friendster profile pic to a picture of your cousin's ex-boyfriend and then-girlfriend, and hers to yours, picking up your bestfriend from home and instead of going to school, you surprise and bring her to a beach cause it's her birthday, or missing class just to have fun, and everything imaginable and unimaginable.
I'd love to know yours, too.
Share them with us.

  2. I have done your #1 also, TWICE! (bad me) But it's true with what you said, my parents still loved and accepted me. It was also a big lesson learned. I'll post mine soon. :-)

  5. Your top five and four made me laugh. Top 1 is a fact, God has unfailing love for all of us. The question is, how do we accept this love.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I have done #4 before too! Sigh... now I leave the scissors in the safe hands of my stylist :P

  7. I did a lot of crazy things too when I was younger. When I was in high school, my girl friends and I (three of us) slumbered in our friends house. We were talking about boys and kissing. Our other friend has never experienced being kissed before and we taught her how to! :P

    Thanks for award. I appreciate it so much! :D

  8. I haven't done any of the crazy things you mentioned.. I'm sure that you have learned not to do so since then.

  9. #5 is scary! I am miss-goody-two-shoes. I can't think of 5 crazy things because I am always crazy and I thought they were normal. haha ! LOL!

  11. One time, I had plans on running away from home, but I just can't leave my home especially my parents. :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. Haha, you were crazy! Joke :) That must have been one real SHOCK, what made you do that with the cord? hehe. I've had my share of crazy stunts, but I was generally a good girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hehehe... you really had a crazy life! joke! I enjoy reading it. I never done any of those..:)

    ReplyDelete

  17. I kept eating even after I got full that I ended up throwing up.
    LESSON: We do have limits.
    --Katakawan moments of mine! :)) i feel for you..

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have also done that about my bangs. I wanted to hide myself but... I kept pulling it wishing it would grow long quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh yeah! I was one sneaky kid in my youth. My parents were so strict that the rebel in me just wanted to burst out of the prison(home). Now I'm a parent myself and can sooo relate to my parents' rules before.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I was never really a sneaky kid, I hope my baby won't be too in the future. I'll go loka if she does.

    ReplyDelete
  21. LOL at #5, like really! Curiosity! ^^v
    I must say, I can relate with #1. Because we were too afraid of what they might think or what their reactions would be, we tend to keep some things in secret. But in the end, our family are the only ones who'll truly accept us and stick with us no matter what. ;)

  22. haha..i have my own share of crazy things when I was a child and even upon growing up.. nice to go back to those days!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Many of us can relate with that cutting of hair and running away. Part of growing up!

    ReplyDelete
  24. i remember, i also cut my bangs very, very short at di pa pantay-pantay ha,ha

    ReplyDelete
  25. I almost got electrocuted myself when I was in elementary. I was holding the TV plug the wrong way and when I inserted it to the socket, I felt more than just a tingling sensation in my arm. I had the good sense to let go so I'm very much alive and commenting here. It wasn't curiousness that time but more of not paying attention hehehe. Lesson? 220 Volts is really shocking lol! I was more careful next time.

    ReplyDelete
  26. your no.4 made me laugh! because i also did that! hahaha i still have photos of that crazy bangs! never fail to make me laugh everytime i come across it haha!

    ReplyDelete
  27. It feels so nice reading your post. Crazy things are part of our youth and these always give us lessons to learn. I can relate to some (lol).

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hahaha! Yeah, #3 is really cool. We all have limits. Visiting from CommEx Sept25.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nice! I can't imagine myself doing these things like pricking the cord with thumbtacks, but these experiences taught us valuable lessons in life.:)

    ReplyDelete
  30. We hard the same experience (#s 4 and 5). I remember I insert a key to an electric outlet. Shocking talaga, hehe. Then, I also cut my hair to have a bangs. Un lang like you it ended up too short. My technique pala dun. Hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hahahaha! Crazy stuffs :) I think these are the moments which really brought us to maturity ^^. One thing I won't be doing is to keep my pregnancy to my family (when the day comes) I've done many unreasonable decisions and from there I learned that family is your way back to home (they will embrace you with sincerity in your down time)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lol! I can relate with the bangs. I did it when I was in Grade 3 and I ended up putting a lot of hairpins so my classmates won't see me in such an embarrassing haircut.

    ReplyDelete
  33. hahahah... I cut my hair too... Lesson Learned: Never cut your own hair beyond split ends.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I enjoyed reading your post. I also ran away from home, your number 2, when I was a little girl for half a day. I was so relieved when my Mom came to get me :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Your post is really related to anybody else. I cannot relate on my side haha.. I've been so obedient haha.
