I was lazing around today thinking to myself: "Why the hell am I never on TWC anymore?" The funny thing is, I asked myself the opposite question before my large and more recent mini hiatuses. Don't get me wrong, I love this place, but it's a serious time waster. So, I figured I'd make a thread that would allow me to pass on some knowledge, whatever.
First things first. If you're still in school, and you're spending more than an hour a day on this site for non modding purposes, stop it. Trust me, you need to work on your social life if you're still in school. Why? Well dummy, that social life has a return investment, TWC doesn't. If there's one thing I regret, it's that I spent too much time here. While I was expanding my knowledge base or defending Socialism in the D&D, I was losing time I could have been spending getting in touch with people.
Some of you might be wondering why you should care. Maybe you've given up on having a quality social life. Stop it. If you don't enjoy yourself with the friends you have, get new ones. If you aren't as close to your friends as you'd like to be, spend time with them. If there's a girl you're interested in, talk to her. Don't make the same mistake I did by gluing yourself in front of a screen all day. Get out and live.
Oh, I like this song, so I'll just post it here so you can listen too.
As I was saying, Social Life comes first. This is almost always true, barring maybe if you're married and/or have kids, or if you're in Antarctica. And that last one is questionable.
So there you have it, stop being Anti-Social and get out there. I'm not going to listen to "But I have friends heeeeere!" No. Don't be stupid. There are a lot of cool people here, but unless they're going to show up at midnight and help you through a nervous breakdown, or be your wing-man next time you go pick up chicks, or rent out an apartment with you, they don't count as part of your Social Life. Not even close.
This blog is going to deal primarily with broad topics, like life lessons or philosophy, and maybe even current political issues like SOPA. So if there's anything you want me to cover, let me know.
