I saw this awesome post from our very own @FuglyCharlie last night … and this is what I love about this website. Everyone voices their opinion – great article, but I could not disagree more. Which is even more awesomer because now it has inspired its own article.
1) Don’t wander off alone.
Well, I am currently on the Unapologetically Awesome Spring/ Summer 2010 Tour, and I could not be more alone. Given, my interactions are entirely based upon social media, and where you guys tell me where to go – what to do, hang out, etc … I am very matter of fact on a solo mission. Which sounds kinda funny, because I never honestly feel alone in the traditional sense working in social media. There is always someone, somewhere, there. It’s kinda cool – but being alone is actually more inspiring to me. I listen to my own inner voice on where to go, what to do – so if this is your style for spring break, I say go for it! Don’t be a retardo denardo, just keep your head up and wits on alert, and you’ll totally be kosher for passover.
2) Don’t leave your drinks unattended.
Yeah – I’m going to have to agree on that one. However, I’ve had something slipped into my drink twice, and honestly I thought I was “watching” it. So no matter what, you’re prolly screwed in this regard. If someone wants to get you, they’re going to. Just safety in numbers when consuming alcohol – and don’t be a stupid poopy head.
3) Watch your drinking.
Yes, watch it go down the hole … TOTALLY kidding haha!! Dude, as long as you guys can handle your liquor and aren’t that chick at the end of the bar crying because the pole next to her turned her down for going home, I think you’re alright.
4) Practice safe sex.
Yeah el duderinos, no glove – no love. That’s just a matter of self respect.
5) Carry Necessities
Sure, why not?! Kinda not hating on this one … however essentials are different for every one of us. Just keep an ID on you, or some sort of dog tags in case you turn up somewhere. Oh yeah, that and indicate if you have a nut allergy. That could be important if some random el duderino decides to show you how big his pair is – at least you can indicate an allergy. =)
6) Keep in contact with friends and family.
Or you can just kill two birds with one stone and check-in on FourSquare. I think they’ll get a pretty good idea something’s not right if all of the sudden they see a check-in at the county jail, with others attending being a big dude named El Bubberino.
Bottom line guys, the “traditional” media conditions us to believe the world is a very, very, scary place. It’s NOT! Life is a reflective experience; the world is a mirror. People are attracted to you by what you are sending out, and your outer reality is just reenacting what is reflected in your inner self.
Know your deal, be as nerdy as possible, and bottom line: ROCK ON!!!! Adventures are what make life complete and fulfilling. Oh and btw, how’s your awesome today? You guys good?
