So you’re just getting started in your life as an adult. You have a little place of your own, but how are you supposed to decorate it? You can get some posters or pictures, maybe some wall hangings, but all those bookshelves need something, too. You’ve just emptied a bottle of your favorite rye – why not wash it out and display it?
That’s the thinking of millions of people around the world that haven’t learned any better. Sure, it’s better than nothing, but there are so, so many other things that you could do to make a place your own.
It's an Intimate Act
There are lots of people out there that love the idea of living in the future. We might not be zooming around on jetpacks, but we do have a Star-Trek-level device in our pockets or hands. Back in the day, there was lots of talk about video phones, but it took quite some time before they came into vogue.
Now you can zoom, facetime, or do all other sorts of things, but some find it...intrusive. Maybe they're not looking their best, or maybe they just don't want to look at you. Make sure the other person is okay before you look into your camera.
We Are a Little Scared of the Bald Dude
The Dude has had long, shaggy hair for so long that it seems unnerving to see him with a bald dome. But, the message on his sign is true enough. There are times when it's best to wear something appropriate or something that fits in, but you can always add a dose of your own flair. Or remove an important part of your famous image, like the Dude here.
You're in control. We can't guarantee you'll look good, or that other people will accept your new look, or that it will even be a good idea, but you can always try.
We Think the Cat Was Wearing Them
AirPods! They're pretty great. They go right in your ears, and then you can listen to music while using them. Now that the basics are out of the way, boy is it hard to find those stupid little things.
Are they in your pocket? In your jacket? Your purse? Your wallet? Did they fall out while you were in the car? Did you lose them on the subway? Maybe they're in the bathroom, or you accidentally put them in a drawer while putting away the clean silverware. What's even worse is when you're looking and find ONE of them. You've looked everywhere and found one of two.
I Get So Nervous
It's not the easiest skill in the world, but plenty of people do it without issue every day of their lives, depending on what city they're in. If you aren't used to doing it, however, it can be pretty nerve-wracking. The other cars are so close!
Many people find it better to perform under pressure if they know nobody is actually looking at them while they're trying to align their vehicle. It's some kind of stage fright. We're not saying that we'd do any better if nobody is looking, but at least nobody will see us hit the other cars.
