Soul Pancake Sunday: How Can Someone Get To Know You?

Image from here.
For this week's Soul Pancake activity: Write five steps someone could follow to get to know the real you.

If ever our worlds would connect IRL, let me just tell you that I'm awfully quiet. So, say, for some reason you want to ~*~get to know~*~ me, here's the lowdown:

1. If there's one little perk I wish the Boss upstairs would've given me, it's not to suck at small talk. Because I am so bad at it. I suck at filling those empty gaps in those wordless moments. That's why I don't start the conversation. Ever. So be a nice person and ask questions to keep the ball rolling. Tell a joke no matter how lame it is. Okay. Not too lame.

2. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, don't talk to me about politics or religion. I won't even explain why. Music would be a nice start. Also movies and food. A little bit about relationships, perhaps?

3. If you're as awkward as me in real life and might not want human interaction yet, I suggest you read my blog. Oh, you're here. I have a lot of thoughts. I don't need to be drunk to be honest with what I think. I post interesting things. S o m e t i m e s. 

4. When I'm the one talking, please listen. When I'm the one asking questions, please answer honestly. I don't judge. 

5. Let's just hangout. What better way to get to know someone, right? I like meeting new people and getting inspired by them. There's a comforting feeling I get whenever I meet someone new that brings a fresh perspective on the table.

SoulPancake is the brainchild of Rainn Wilson (yes, from The Office), Devon Gundry, Shabnam Mogharabi, Golriz Lucina, and their other creative friends. It is a creative movement/project that touches art, culture, science, philosophy, spirituality and humor that encourages people to open their minds, speak out and be real.
