I'm not trying to alarm you, but the kid in this picture is me. Yes, awkward smile and all...
Note those matching Reebok shoes and socks pulled up so you can actually see how proud I was of the fact that they matched.
This was my first year playing basketball and ironically probably the last time I was (one of) the tallest on any basketball team.
I was recently in a place where I needed to have a uncomfortable conversation with someone. I'm sure we've all been there. You don't want to, but you know you need to. It will probably hurt at first, but the relationship (and you) will be better off for it.
Ironically, this is very much like pulling a band-aid off.
The other day I was at a "famous coffee chain" here in Santa Monica which shall remain nameless. I entered and placed my coffee order for an iced Americano and noticed the baristas were conspicuously preoccupied with other things. I'm not sure what actually, but I will assume it was the type of side work you have to do in the restaurant biz.
