Have some time to kill? Educate yourself.
—How Will I Know (Acappella)
If you want to be truly intimidating, if you want to make an impact, if you want to have a strong connection with others, just be sincere. Sarcasm is not an attitude, and it’s not a personality trait. It’s a style of rhetoric meant to be used occasionally to highlight a larger point. Saying you’re a sarcastic person is like saying your favorite cuisine is salt. Sarcasm is easy because you never have to take a stance. And that’s just the problem; It’s so noncommittal. Be yourself, even if that means being unsure or uneasy. Let someone else put you at ease. Meet them in the middle. Be sincere.
Crazy wind today.
When I was in high school, I wanted to start a band.
A post-hardcore rock band.
Instead, I worked at a law firm and made money.
Now that I’m in law school, I’m in a band.
An acoustic singer/songwriter duo.
The twist? I don’t make money.
