I’m sitting in Starbucks in an off-the-grid neighborhood of my little EE city. So off-the-grid, in fact, that the nice girl who took my order was actually surprised and shocked to speak English.
There is a girl sitting close to me. She’s very cute. She has a MacBook Air, so she’s probably a hipster.
Then again, I’m typing this on a gawd-damn iPad so I should probably not talk about hipsterdom. she’s been playing on Facebook for the last 45 minutes since I sat down. Who knows how long she’s been here prior to that.
The look on her face is absolutely priceless.
There is no emotion, and hardly any life as she scrolls lifelessly through her timeline.
It’s a Friday afternoon, the sun is out (albeit it’s a bit cold). And she is sitting in Starbucks bored out of her mind.
I feel bad for the girl, but this is our modern reality. Looking everywhere for a passion, for entertainment. Something to pass the time. We have so many tools at our disposal to entertain us, and yet we are still bored.
This is ridiculous enough to say as I type these words, but:
The guy sitting on the other side of me, doing the exact same thing (except with a Samsung Galaxy). In many ways they are exactly the same.
On my way here, I saw a young girl on the public transit.
The girl who was on the tram with her 1-year-old child in a stroller beside her was so much more full of life than these two.
That’s because the young mother has a passion in life – caring for another life.
It doesn’t even matter what your damn passion is, as long as it’s something you’re energetic about.
This is doubly-true for men.
Women often do not have true passions. When is the last time you had a girl who was truly PASSIONATE about a hobby like guitar, mountain biking, or something of the sort?
Half the time girlfriends just steal the guy’s hobbies.
The point is this:
It is up to you to determine what you want to pursue in life. But whatever it is, make damn sure it’s worthwhile. And if you decide to settle down with a girl, make sure she has her own missions she is following (#1 should be supporting you and raising your family).
Don’t let her scroll her Facebook feed like this girl in Starbucks unless you want her brain to rot like moldy milk.
Better yet, get a good girl from the very get-go.
King’s Code will teach you how, and it’s only barely the price of this shitty cup of coffee (but only ’til tomorrow):
