Mr. & Mrs. Right

I've been thinking about Andrew's post of the conversation between him and his sister as well as some things happening around here. I used to be really self-conscious about what I wore, how I acted in public places, and around just being around girls, but I say "why can't I be me?" I feel like I have been straying away from this falsity that society has been trying to push on us and many have fallen into. Who cares what people at stores think of you? I'm not going to change who I am to try and impress someone at a store.

Andrew's sister is most likely just looking out for her daughter and her little brother's well-doing, but I say let your hair grow Andrew; you'll find a great girl who will love you for you. Matt, if you love Jeopardy, CIV IV, and fast food, don't change (as much as we give you a hard time) cause a girl is going to come into your life that will want to sit down and shout out answers with you while you watch the ole Trebek. Kyle, you love math, like you really love it; you'll find a girl who may or may not be interested in math, but will like your loud laugh and the way you jump in your bed when you get really excited (heck! she'll probably jump all over the bed too). Grant! Well I know Grant will find a girl who loves him for him; she'll like the internet but probably not as much as him; I'm not sure if anyone can love it more than him.

I'm just saying, be yourself and don't worry about trying to please all these people. It's impossible. If people can't accept you for who you are, then they may not be worth your time. We need to be patient, the right girl or guy will come along. *(that guy part was not intended for Matt, but for any single female readers).

One of my favorite philosophers, Jerry Seinfeld, once asked why we spend so much time trying to get people we don't like to like us. I guess that's what we call high school. But, Mrs. Right... I think we both agree that there isn't necessarily one Mrs. Right out there, but there is someone who can appreciate me for who I am (despite some noticeable flaws). And she'll have flaws too, but they'll be balanced out by her dark hair, her musical abilities, and her lack of shaved legs (all necessary features of Mrs. Right for me).
