Don't even contact the mutual friend. There's nothing shittier than being a go-between guy.
(she sent me a text) And two weeks after that was when she updated her relationship status, so confusion and freakout seem a little bit justifiable, imo.
Maybe you creeped her right the fuck out.
When you have a lot of enthusiasms, people will tell you that you need to focus. You need to just concentrate on one thing. You are too easily distracted.That's wrong.Some people are monomaniacal. They have one deep, abiding interest. They can dive down into it and never come up, and they can do fantastic things down there.But then there are other people, who are delighted by everything, and who want to try it all. That is not a failure of focus, it is a different personality. They are the ones who make connections between unlikely disciplines. They don't usually reap the full rewards of those insights. Reward reaping usually requires monomaniacal focus. But they feed monomaniacs new food. Monomaniacs deepen the human experience. Polymaths broaden it.Plus, look, it's in the Indie Band Survival Guide: None of the musicians we interviewed for the Guide rely on one project for their income. Most of them were working on many different projects beyond playing live, selling albums, and selling merchandise. For instance, Jonathan Coulton participates in the Popular Science magazine podcast at popsci.com and licenses his music. Brad Turcotte of Brad Sucks maintains multiple Web sites including stripcreator.com and also licenses his music. Grant Baciocco of Throwing Toasters writes and produces the multiple award winning podcast The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd, does voice-over and acting work, and produces a podcast for the Jim Henson Company, among other projects. George Hrab is a drummer in a popular cover band that plays at weddings and corporate events, writes and produces his Geologic Podcast, and has written a book. The Brobdingnagian Bards produce a popular Celtic-music podcast called Celtic MP3s Music Magazine (in addition to four other podcasts and multiple newsletters), maintain multiple Celtic-music Web sites, and even have a comic book.Yeah, I know, long quote is long! But the point required some elaboration. Nothing I've read recently has given me as much moral support as the above quote. I'm all over the place. My biggest problem in getting things done has always been an inability to stay focused on just one thing. It took forty years, but I think I'm finally realizing that focusing on one thing is not my cognitive style.I'm nocturnal, I'm a polymath, and the world is not constructed to be kind to people like me.
