I went to a comedy show and came across the phrase, "Be a Man":

1. Make real decisions.

2. Put your relationships second. A man who values other people over his integrity. He becomes a wretch.
When people see that a man takes his values and ideals seriously, he will be respected.

3. Be willing to fail.

4. Be confident

5. Express love actively.

6. Re-channel sex energy.

7. Face your fears

8. Honor the masculinity of other men.

9. Accept responsibility for your relationships.

"Put your relationships second" especially struck me. I have been thinking too much of a "boyfriend" lately.
Now that I'm at it, I should read my "Steps to Academic Success" booklet.
