Mistakes We Make: Social. Spiritual. Professional. Style.


Let’s get metaphysical

By NJ@30

So we’ve been at this for about 6 months now, and to be honest, if No Jerseys ended today, I would be the same inconvenienced, debt-ridden, professionally lost soul I’ve always destined to be. However, I’ve never been happier, felt more blessed and spiritually enriched  as I have since I began this venture. Like I told a friend the other day, good or bad, no one can take these writings away from me. The comments and feedback I’ve received from the faithful following has inspired me more than you know. I’ve actually been complimented by paid, successful writers! Not bad for a guy who failed English in high school and college.

What I’d like to do now is bring my readers into the mix. Are there topics that you would like to see covered? I know it’s not in everyone’s nature to bare all on page, which has been a large part of my intentions, to do that for you.

So over the next few days, think about a pressing issue(s) I’ve missed. If you have a minute, write me. Feel free to use the contact link if you want to be anonymous.

Also, if I’ve managed to strike a nerve with any of my past entries, I want to hear about that too.

No subject is too serious or immature. I aim to impact, but also entertain. Once I’ve gotten a series of responses, I’ll get to work.

Looking forward to your thoughts. Please don’t hurt my feelings.

30 Thread #7: Summer style tip for the dudes. I discovered recently that Nike makes the best dress shorts I’ve ever had. They sit perfectly just above the knees, slim through the thighs, offer attractive styles, and best of all, the FITDRY material rejects the uninvited “sweat smile” in the posterior upper thigh area, which never fails to embarrass..and disgust.

    Suggested Subject: the company you keep shapes you . . . discuss.

    Also, I’d like to add a nugget of fashion wisdom from my hero Ron Swanson:

    “Attire: Shorts over 6” are capri pants. Shorts under 6” are European.” – as seen in the Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness: http://img2.timeinc.net/ew/dynamic/imgs/110120/park-recs-pyramid_1500.jpg

      Great topic, although I see no need to ever write again after reviewing the Swanson Pyramid of Greatness.

        Also from Nick Offerman/Ron Swanson:

        “When I see people wearing flip-flop sandals in public, it sickens me…What if Red Dawn happens and some Communists land in parachutes, and we have to suddenly run or fight them, and you’re wearing flip-flip sandals?!” “That’s beachwear.”

    Maybe a feature on why coach Taylor is the greatest fictional character of our generation.

      I would like NJ@30 to be considered the “Friday Night Lights” of blogging some day. Unappreciated, overachieving, greatly missed, and responsible for emotional outbursts by hot moms worldwide.
