How to be cool.
You don't need to impress everyone/be the coolest guy there. Remember that.
Don't try to be cool and impress everyone. Relax, and enjoy yourself.
It's like in baseball. The best way to hit a ball, is to stop trying too hard to hit it.
"You know, baseball is a thing that if you push too hard...
you get exactly the opposite of what you're trying for."
-"This time, swing to miss."
-"Okay. That's easy."
from the movie "Three Wishes (1995)"
You don't have to be perfect. You don't need to win every game. Just do your best, but remember to have fun. :)
Don't hate/envy others if they are better than you are.
Be happy for them :)
If you disagree with someone, say it. If you have a question, ask it. Others are probably asking themselves the same thing.
Don't be afraid to speak your mind. You don't have to agree with everyone.
Protect the weak ones.
Do what you want/need to do, don't do it because others do it. Or because others tell you to do.
Try to have some fun. (not at the expense of others, though.)
Be nice to girls. And others. But especially to girls. :)
Guess what: others are just as scared and confused as you are :)
They haven't got it all figured out.
Even those pretty girls. :)
They are just good at hiding it :)
So relax. And enjoy. And remember to smile. :)
