Attitude shift

Posted in Uncategorized by antisociology on May 2, 2009

Loyal readers, I’m afraid I have to apologize for not keeping in touch these last few weeks (months?). To be honest, nothing of note has really happened. I’ve changed a little, though. Well, at least my attitude toward certain things has.

I’ve started investing less of myself in work. Part of this stems from the difficulty of working with a team that’s on the other side of the country. Lately, I’ve started fighting less and taking orders more. I still work hard, I just don’t fight as hard when I think something is wrong. In short, I’ve been acting more like an employee and less like … well … like a founder (which, honestly, I’m not).

I’ve also been trying to care less about any particular girl. Those of you who know me in person know that I can get emotionally invested fairly early on. This, plus my lack of dating experience means that things don’t usually go well. I’m fairly certain I may have blown it with a very hot prospect. At the end of our second date, I wussed out on kissing this particular lady. Several friends advised me to send her a text message and ended up (quickly!) coming up with a haiku. I’m told this is too romantic. I dunno. Haiku is a fairly low investment in my book. It’s basically word play. In any case, this girl seems less chatty and interested in going out now. C’est la vie, I suppose. It’s probably a little early to call time of death on this one, but I can’t but help but feel as if she’s trying to put a certain distance between us.

While I know my friends (all girls) meant well, I suspect that they were speaking of their own in-relationship desires, rather than from the perspective of girls being courted.

I really need to work on this kissing issue, methinks. The whole kissing and flirting thing. Well, maybe just dating in general. Is it really a matter of going out with whole bunch of people? Who has the time or energy to do that?!

To assuage my feelings, I’m making cheddar muffins right now. The cheese guy I bought my cheese from was bragging about how you only needed half what the recipe calls for because his cheese is so flavorful. Ever the pessimist, I’ve made a half batch at full strength, and a half batch a half strength. We’ll see what happens.

Speaking of the cheese guy, I have pretty much been using my commuter bike for all of my trips around the city. Grocery shopping has been especially pleasant. The last challenge I have yet to master is how to get bike and groceries up the stairs at the same time.

    Maybe you should start taking advice from a guy? I am probably super lame, but I think Dr. Phil rocks. He also has books (you can get em at the library) that are pretty good as well. Lemme know what you think.

      Probably. I don’t have many guy-friends relative to girl-friends, though. I might need to start working on that.
