Last night while in class I was surfing the Internet. Yes, I realize I’m paying good money for my education and I should be fully focused on the professor, but I wasn’t. I don’t know if you guys have realized this, but I have the attention span of a four year old. Asking me to sit still and pay attention for 3.5 hours is absurd. So to break up the time I surf the internet. I guess I should start calling it multi-tasking, because really I’m listening to the professor (despite what I just said), surfing the Internet, and IMing the girl beside me. See multi-tasking! Who says I didn’t learn anything in my early years of college!
Anyway, where was I…oh surfing the Internet, while listening to the professor. One of the websites I stumbled onto was Cosmo. Now, I’ve read Cosmo a couple times, I am a girl. However, I can’t say I have ever been to their website. It’s actually a very informative website. Here are a couple things I learned:
1. Alcoholism is up in women.
2. How to find jeans that will fit my body.
3. Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett (whatever her last name is) are getting married.
4. My horoscope.
5. 10 Things my boss never told me but should.
6. Sexy Perfumes.
7. How to meet a guy in 30 days.
As you can imagine number 7 stopped me dead in my tracks. As I read all 30 suggestions I realized that Cosmo is a genius! No wonder women have been reading them for years! They held the answer to one of the oldest questions. How to find a guy? Ok, so maybe I’m adding a smidge of sarcasm right now. Actually, I’m being 100% sarcastic. The suggestions they offered were hilarious. I was Iming them to the girl next to me and even she was laughing. IM Buddy pointed out a few things to me. Point number one, it only took her 3,654 days to find her husband. Yeah, I felt that was super encouraging as well. Point number two, she felt pretty certain it would take me 300 days to find a date- not 30. I was certain I could find someone in less than 300 days. I mean, that’s almost a full year. She finally agreed, and changed her guess to 299. I guess 299 days sounds better than 300 days; or not.
If you would like to take the Cosmo 30 day challenge here’s Day 1:
Email all your contacts and let everyone know that you are looking for a man, and willing to be set up. **
**So I paraphrased some, but that’s basically what it said.
