Okay, so I’ve been insanely bored the past couple of weeks, and I decided in an attempt to end my boredom, What the heck? Why not start a tumblr?
I mean I’ve been hearing all of these great things about tumblr, and all my favorite author’s have one, so why don’t I start one?
And as you can clearly see that is exactly what I am doing.
So after I had settled on starting a blog, I came to the dilemma of what to write about. I didn’t want to do just any rag-tag, slapstick sort of generic blog. I wanted something that stood out. I wanted something that would maybe help people.
But before I could start saving the world, I was still stuck on a theme for my blog. I could do an eco-friendly based blog or a do it yourself blog or even a self empowerment blog. But, none of those really caught my fancy, so I kept thinking and thinking until it hit me:
Tips, Rules, and Secrets. The title is pretty self explanatory, but here’s a little more incite:
Tips on how to survive high school. It can be the best or worst four years of your life, and since I’m going through it right now, maybe my experience’s, both the good and bad, can help somebody out there.
Rules on treating a girl right. Lately a lot of my friends have been dating complete jerks, and it’s really been pissing me off. So I’m going to try and give all the guys out a little help. Now remember this advice will be coming from one girl, so it obviously wont apply to all of the girls out there, but I’ll try to keep an open mind so it will hopefully apply to most of them.
And Secrets about yours truly, the author. Now don’t worry, I’m not going to spill any nasty secrets about how I killed my neighbor and buried him under my house or something. Nor will I go all sappy teenage girl on you and talk about all the boys I’m crushing on. This will be a lighthearted and silly look into my personal life. It probably wont help anybody but, maybe it’ll make someone out there laugh.
Okay so there’s your run down on this blog now on with the show!!!
Being popular is vastly overrated.
The one thing that almost everyone strives for in high school is to be popular. And if you’re one of the few people who doesn’t mind not being popular, you at least want to be liked by your peers.
But here’s a little advice. It’s high school!!! In five years you wont even remember half those people!
Don’t believe me? Ask your parents how many of their high school classmates they’re still friends with. The number will be slim to none. The thing is that all high school will do for your life is make a good memory, or in some cases a bad one. The second you graduate and go to college you’ll be on to bigger and better things.
Now you may be wondering how a sophomore in high school, has any knowledge on this subject. Clearly I don’t have the experience to assure you that this will be the outcome. But, I do know a lot of people who do.
As many of these people have told me all you have to do is look at the people who are popular now and realize that they are in:
“Their in the third year of the best four years of their lives.”
-Sam, I am Number Four.
Don’t be a Drape but, don’t be Houdini either.
Now Some of you maybe a teensy bit confuddled with this first rule. Basically what I’m trying to say is:
Don’t suffocate the girl and be really clingy, but at the same time don’t be the guy who’s never around or is always canceling on her either.
You’ve gotta find the right balance. If your too clingy what you wind up doing is making yourself look like a wuss who can’t go one minute without the support of his girlfriend, it also makes the girl want to break up with you.
On the other hand if your never around she’ll feel like she’s not important to you or that you don’t care about her. If the reason your never around is because you really don’t like the girl, then do the both you and her a favor, end it. It’s not fair to the girl for you to string her along and give her the false notion of affection. If you keep up the charade two things can happen either she’ll break up with you and be pissed off at you for all of eternity or she’ll break up with you, blame herself and have her heart broken.
Either way it’s a loose-loose situation.
Oh and if your trying to pull of the whole brooding and mysterious thing by always disappearing, here’s my advice to you:
Grow a pair and get over yourself.
If you have to try to be the cool guy, trust me it wont work out. Just relax and be yourself, and the right girl will show up eventually.
I have an unhealthy obsession with cupcakes.
Yes it’s true I’m a cupcakeoholic. I can’t help it there just so yummy. I mean who would have thought of making a handheld little cylinder of heaven!!!
A Genius that’s who.
So if you want to be my bestest friend ever. Give me cupcakes. And I will love you forever and ever
Here’s some pictures of a-maaaaaazing cupcakes!!!!
