The importance of small talk

 

1. “There’s nothing good about getting older-absolutely nothing-because the amount of wisdom and experience you gain is negligible compared to what you lose. You do gain a couple of things-you gain a little bittersweet and sour wisdom from your heartbreaks and failures and things-but what you lose is so catastrophic in every way” is what Woody Allen once said for Interview Magazine. The man is totally right. I mean, look at us.  We meet people. We get involved, we fall in love. Then we fall out or apart and carry on looking for something or someone else. Sometimes with free will, some other times as requested by events. And the worst part is, we don’t ever get better. We are scarred for life, from every romantic mishap or life punch. We get all dramatic and shit because society always points its finger on single people calling them failures, BUT we ARE afraid to get close to anyone, and anyone is not getting any closer to use either cause we’re sending the wrong signal, I guess.

2. Always make small talk to your friends over coffee, a drink, phone or even YM at 1 am on Monday morning. Not only it clears your head but also brings out such modern words of wisdom you couldn’t positively think of when alone rubbing mint on the Internet.

3. I’m still guessing why can’t we just be with a person we like. Why do you guys have to treat us like idiots? Is it asking too much if we, girls, in modern day, would like not to be called bitches/stupid/jerks/whores/trainwrecks? If we’d like you to hold the door for us? Ask us about our day? Make us breakfast? How ’bout use protection in bed, you f’cking retards! Jeez. Well this really makes me wanna quit on life.

4. Whenever you feel hungover, hungry, in the mood for love, sex and Bob Dylan at the same time, just don’t go watching any depressing movie from the 50s like “A streetcar named desire” that would bum your head even more. Just….go take a shower, love yourself, call a friend or eat some toast. Please.

5. When 100 people who don’t know you from anywhere else than fb are TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY interested in your private life, you should just, well…ban them?

6. Never give up on what you call your dreams, aspirations, life plans and goals. They’re part of what YOU represent as an individual. Do not get fooled into expecting less and less with time, just to please others. It’s never a bad thing to want more. It’s not unrealistic to deserve. Get your hopes up and pack for a better self, life and expectations. It’s okay to feel low.

    small talk is good, but I wouldn’t mention YM which I btw uninstalled last night. Also, no more FB starting… well, last midnight. For how long? DK, but I woke up this morning not knowing which web page to open. FB had replaced everything.

    Of course you should ban those people, but don’t you think that would mean banning 3/4 of your friend list? While some make really obvious your, I quote, “evolution”, others are equally interested in spying your virtual activity but they’re just not showing it. The question that arises now is: which type is worse?

    And about bumping into the wrong people, that’s why I believe having no expectations when it comes to other saves you a lot of trouble. It doesn’t mean having low expectations, just not building a pedestal for anyone. I’d write some more, but ugly day’s calling for work.
