Four Ways to Awesome

Happy Fourth! Yes today I'm enjoying a day off with family and friends. We're going to my Aunt's house where swimming, good food, and a whole lot of laughter will take place.

So  let's make this post simple!

I decided in lieu of the fourth I'd name four ways to awesome... feel free to add your own four or just keep adding to my list. (I'm cool with either one).

1. Be Yourself. Yeah that's right. We're not in High School anymore. No one judges you (okay they still do, now you don't give a crap). Be yourself it's what makes you badass. It also gains you real friends.

2. Cupcakes a must. If you want to keep friends always have a snack nearby. That's not friendship? What the heck do you know? Get off my blog. Food makes friendship better.

3. Share. Tell a crazy ass story to your friend. It makes them stick around longer. If they can last past your badass tales (not lies) they're a keeper.

4. Be funny. People like to laugh. If you can't bring it you don't belong. I'm just saying if you want to be awesome you gotta be funny. It's like a requirement.

That's how to be awesome. What are your ways to be awesome?

I'm first. I'm first. Neener-neener. Was that even remotely funny? Not at all? Damn. Have a cupcake. And happy fourth!

Just breathe.

Haha. Yeah, I can certainly identify with your first point. The others are true too depending on your personality. But first and foremost, just be you. Can't go wrong there. :o) Well, yeah, you can go wrong, but that's the other person's problem then :o)

Sometimes cheetos are a good substitute for cupcakes in a pinch. There's nothing like bonding over orange fingers.

Have a happy 4th!

Sarah Pearson said...

Cupcakes. Pretty much the solution to everything.

Have fun today.

Food makes everything better!

Food and Funny are my requirements for friendship. Period.

Emy Shin said...

"Food makes friendship better."

Truer words have never been written. Many of my friendships are built on sharing foods. :D

Happy 4th of July!

"Be yourself" is truly the best. I would also add "say what you mean, and mean what you say". (Or keep quiet.Don't say you'll do something just to be polite, and then back out. Just say no!)
I don't like cupcakes *gasp* or sweets, but someone did mention cheetos....
and last but not least, don't wish evil on anyone no matter how much you think they deserve it. It's liable to boomerang in some way you never thought of.
Happy Fourth, and you ARE awesome!

Jen, Jen, Jen...how could you forget chocolate and coffee???? :-)

Bethany Elizabeth said...

I am totally 100% with you on the cupcakes thing. :D
As far as being awesome... well, let's see. Dance. Everywhere. :D
Happy Fourth!

Cupcakes = Friendship. Works for me!

I'm going to be making over 200 cupcakes for son's upcoming graduation party. That's a lot of friendship!
: )

Happy 4th of July!

Shelley Sly said...

I love these! Food plus laughter plus craziness/weirdness equals a genuine friendship for me! :)

Francine Howarth said...

Hee hee, all four (choc cupcakes) and if you can't get published self-pub and play poo sticks with Kindle at Amazon: either float and drift or sink without trace!

My historical romance novella is still afloat at the mo but in need of serious buyer breeze! ;)
But what the hell, I had fun making the book trailer, and it was easier than I'd thought possible. http://francinehowarth.blogspot.com

Hope your 4th is filled with joy and cupcakes! Enjoy :)

Jennifer Hillier said...

Happy 4th, Jen! And I definitely agree about having snacks handy. It makes me wary of people when I go over and they don't offer me food! At my house, everybody eats. That's the rule.

Mango cupcakes.
Happy Independence day.

Good thing for me, I am funny (or is it just arrogant.) and good news for you, so are you - but if you weren't I guess it doesn't really matter, as point one clearly says, you don't give a crap :)
