Play More Dungeons and Dragons

Once your youth has passed you by there is a tendency to look back at the things you did with a mixture of awe and incredulity. One thing that has struck me recently is how much time I spent bored out of my skull doing stuff I didn’t really enjoy in the vain hope that someone would get off with me. So if you’re aged 17-21 and slightly geeky listen carefully…

Play more Dungeons and Dragons, or go fishing, or get involved in cosplay or join a Carnival Krewe or something that you want to do. Don’t spend your time in nightclubs listening to music you don’t like very much, damaging your hearing and utterly failing to get off with someone nice. It doesn’t matter how many hours of nightclubbing you do, if they don’t fancy you, they don’t fancy you.

It’s good to socialise but utter boredom is nature’s way of telling you that you’re not having a good time.
