Robert D replied to Paul's discussion Best concert you've been to

Robert D replied to Charles Sugar's discussion Setting up goals, and not achieving them
"Unless you write it down, its not a goal, just a dream or a wish. Have a specific and clearly defined endpoint, not something vague. "I want to get in shape" is not a goal. "I want to lose 15 lbs by a certain date" is. Write this…"

Robert D replied to Stephen Jashub Comstock's discussion The sad state of American journalism..

Robert D replied to Glen Rose's discussion Animal Attacks
"I was never attacked or threatened by an animal, though a squirrel did look at me menacingly once... Anyway, as far as I know, when attacked by wolves, mountain lions, or coyotes, it is probably a predatory response, so fight it off as much as…"

Robert D replied to Motus's discussion Ditching dead weight friends
"I've never had an experience like this, but I think that anyone that anyone who treats a "friend" like they treat you are not friends. Leave them. It may be painful, but it will be worth it in the long run. Let then wallow in their…"

Robert D replied to Belmin Bratic's discussion What is a manly song for a ringtone?

Robert D replied to Patrick DeVaughn's discussion Top Manliest albums or musicians?
"Anything by Sabaton. They're a Swedish metal band that sings about history. Their subjects include D-Day, the siege of Stalingrad, the Somme, the 101st at Bastogne, Vietnam, the battle of Winza, The Thirty Years War, among many others.  "

Robert D replied to Todd Knight's discussion what type of man are you?

Robert D replied to Ciarán Morrissey's discussion Education
"Undergraduate: Major in History, a minor in Anthropology (mostly by accident). I don't regret it, but given today's job market, I wish I choose something else if I had the opportunity. Graduate: I am a dissertation away from having a…"

Pale Horse replied to Lon R.'s discussion Contemporary Christian Music in the group Christian Men
"I agree wholeheartedly. Very few CCM songs and groups appeal to me, and when they do, it's because of what Nathanael mentioned. That up-and-coming band For King and Country is a big offender. Saying "Fix my eye-eye, eye-eye-eyes on…"
