I never have any time to write blogs. Well, either that or I really don't have anything meaningful to say and/or I just don't want people to know what I'm thinking.
Anyway, I finally found the time AND motivation to write something... at 1 AM after I just got back from a seminar about the swine flu and how you should be getting enough sleep haha. I would be sleeping however I had to study for my big bio test tommorrow (ahh!). I just got through studying and discovered I was incredibly hungry and I can never go to sleep when I'm hungry. I also thought of something that I wanted to share.
So I started zoning off while studying (the material is incredibly interesting to me, but you can only study for so long....) and started thinking about something way off topic. I started thinking about how important relationships are and the best way to go about having them- the best way to enjoy them and make an impact at the same time. It basically breaks down into 1. spend more time with people and 2. study them. Mostly the study part, because there are some people you can't spend that much time with. If we can just learn how people act and react, what they like and dislike, what sets them off, what calms them down, how to get their attention and how to push them away... if we can just learn all of these things, about our friends, our family, our co-workers, our classmates... and act upon what we learn, then we will have much better relationships. Change the way you act depending on who you are hanging out with or simply having a conversation with. I'm not talking about changing your personality in order to fit in. I'm talking about being completely comfortable with yourself, while being considerate and compassionate with others, learning how you can love them and laugh with them, helping them feel comfortable as well. Everyone is so different and interesting in their own way. And lots of people have been hurt and act "weird" because of certain things that happened in their past.
It takes time to understand people, but if you are patient, it will be well worth it. Once you learn how to communicate with people, you will see all of the wonderful things they have to offer, and they might be able to help you. You might be able to help them, too.
It's all about spending time, studying, making mistakes, learning from them, and finally reaching that point where you can program yourself to communicate specifically with that special person.
Time to go to bed... goodnight =)
