I really should learn to blog before I read everybody else's blog. I always read other blogs first, and by the time I'm done, I'm not in the mood to blog anymore.
Anyways, I figure I should really start publishing my tips to guys that I've made. I know I make it seem like I've got dozens, but I know I'll only be able to think up a couple right now. But I'll publish more of them as they come out. I figure it's important stuff that needs to be heard.
Tips for guys #1) If you're at a social event of some sort (dance, party, whatever) and there's dancing / a dance floor, or anything of the sort...if you see a girl standing alone somewhere kinda watching the dance floor...please just ask her to dance. It really doesn't matter much who you are, or who she is, just do it. Chances are she's standing alone because she's thinking there might be a better chance of being asked to dance if she's not surrounded by all of her friends. And she probably won't be staring directly at the dance floor, because that would seem all too obvious, and she really doesn't want to seem desperate or anything. So please, just ask her to dance. It'll take probably a total of 3 minutes of your night, and it'll go a long way to making her night awesome. How do I know this? I've been that girl.
Tips for guys #2) Try not to take things so personal all the time. I know girls do it often and everything. It happens. But sometimes it doesn't hurt to just keep quiet and let things blow over. Good example: breaking up. I know we tend to go to all our friends, and call you a jerk, until we've got practically the whole world against you . Maybe you did a bad job of breaking up, and we've just got some really hard feelings. Maybe you did absolutely nothing wrong, and we're just freaking out. Either way, here's how I see it: usually after a break up, there are two things that we're thinking. One of them is how much of a jerk you are. The other thought is 'how in the world could I have screwed that up?' Believe me, it's hard to think of something that made life so wonderful, ending because we screwed up. It's not a pleasant thought, and it doesn't make life any easier for us. So I know it's not fair to you guys, but honestly, it makes our life so much bearable to blame it all on you for a while, so we don't have blame ourselves. Eventually we'll take a step back. We'll look at it from different angles, we'll see things we didn't notice before. Chances are we won't hate you forever. So just give us a little grace period just to help us out a bit. Okay?
Of course, that doesn't apply if you really were a jerk. But that is an entirely different story, one that would take way too long to explain here, as being a jerk is really a relative term, and considering who's point of view you see things from, it complicates things quite a bit. So, as one would say is physics, for this equation to work, you must assume there is no actual acting like a jerk in this system. Also assume no friction. And no gravity, just to be on the safe side.
Well, I think that was a pretty good subject for a blog tonight. And seeing as I went to bed at 3:30 in the morning last night, I think I'll be off right now, and hopefully catch up on a little bit of sleep, so I might not fall asleep in rehearsals tomorrow.
