Dating Do’s and Don'ts

According to DivineCaroline, there are some things that singles should know about dating.  Here are a few:

1. If you ask a woman out for a date, take the lead, be a gentleman, and plan. Don’t show up without a plan.
2.  Don’t show up for a date wearing torn jeans, cut off jeans, or a combination of the above with Tevas or Birkenstocks. Instead, put some thought into what you wear. First impressions are lasting impressions.
3.  If you are self-conscious about your body, then work out. Working out produces endorphins, which make you happy.
4.  If you had a bad day at work and you are simply in a negative mind space, you are probably better off not bringing your date down, so let him or her know you need to reschedule. Your date will appreciate your honesty.
5.  If you are balding, get a buzz cut—it’s sexy.

Here's the rest.

Far from Home

This is the farthest I've ever been from home.

I'm flying in an airplane to Seattle, and taking another flight to Walla Walla, where I will be going to college for the next 3 or 4 years.

I went to school in Texas, where I live.  The farthest I've been from home for a whole 9 or 10 months is 4 hours.  And that's not including my dad's house, 1 hour away.  I've been up here once before, but we didn't have a connecting flight.  Just straight to Pasco, near Walla Walla. 

So this is it.  Going away to college.  I had to pack all my stuff in 2 bags and a backpack.  Needless to say, I will have to buy some things while I'm in Walla Walla.  I am, however, glad that my dad is going with me. 

Distances aren't what they used to be.

Just years ago, going away to college meant never seeing and rarely talking to your college-student relative.  Now, with email, IM, SMS, cellular, and a host of other abbreviated devices, communicating, just talking, to a far-away college student isn't hard at all anymore. 

Hopefully, I will be able to keep in touch with family and friends back home on a regular basis.

I agree with all of it:

Family Guy - Most Disturbing Moments Ever

New Pretend Word: Badassitude

Definition: (Adj.) This word describes how badass someone or something is, usually having alot of it.

Ex.:Charlton Heston, a man who starred in one of the only movies where someone gets killed, I mean honest-to-goodness killed(clip here at 2:45). In addition is a top person in the NRA.

Map of the 'Blogosphere'

Blogosphere is the collective term encompassing all blogs as a community or social network. - Wikipedia

Map of the Blogosphere - DISCOVER Magazine

This is a 'map' that I found to show what the blogosphere is.
Also, I found it ironic that I would post this to my blog, because writing about blog concepts on my blog is ironic.
