And I'm trying to take advantage of that. Try a little experiment when you walk through the streets. Keep your head up and give the people the impression that you have a lot of self-confidence. They gotta see it in your face. And it works amazingly. They'll go out of your way and no one will bump into you in a crowded street. It's a little psychological trick.

Yeah, well I'm very loud so the people will step out of my way anyway.

Before I could legally buy alcohol, I used to walk into supermarkets and place 18 packs in front of the cashiere, and because I held my head up and acted self confident, nobody carded me.

See, a marvellous example.

It's a blessing sometimes that people are so easily fooled. No wonder, it's sometimes hard distinguishing what is real and what isn't when media brainwash you.

My life is a comedy but they're all laughing at me. [/teenaged angst]

Seriously, though, I know it works. It's great.

Indeed. I once watched my ex-girlfriend walk down the street infront of me with her head hung, looking to the floor. I thought, "God, she just looks like a victim asking to be victimised some more." So I stopped myself doing that and now people not only move out of my way, but they don't bother with me and look for weaker targets.

Kinda shitty that you have to do that and people can't just be decent to one another, but whatever...

So true.

The 10-12th Feb Cph Vision was held in Copenhagen, a fashion Show where the hottest brands show off their new collections to their buyers.

Normally its impossible for "normal" people to get in, but since my school is stuffed with young and upcoming designers (Ahem), they let us in.

I knew from the start that i might not feel so smart and trendy in a crowd consistand of Denmarks hottest fashion designers. The school even told us to dress up and wear this and that, so that we wouldnt feel like farmers in there.

I thought, HELL NO! Most of the designer clothes looks like shit anyways, its just a matter of how you wear it. If you feel like a million bucks, you look it.

I just wore whatever i usually wear.

I walked around in there like a fuckin supermodel. I looked rediculous, like i always do. But the effect was totally different from the one i usually get. I had alot of people asking me "Omg, who did those pants?" and "Omg, tell me, who did your hair, its just leik, so great!".



Im sorry for all the spelling mistakes. I cant be arsed to correct them right now. Aaand im sorry if this didnt make any sense at all. Im sick and tired. Just like Anastacia! Omfg! Never mind.

I'd like to be an actor in the_GoDdEsS' porno movie called Life.

...

Seriously though, wise advice there and it's so true. It's amazing how something that seems so little, or subtle rather, works so well. You can get away with murder this way. Keep your chin and head up, and have either a stone face or a face that's just exuding confidence, and the world becomes yours if only for a few minutes.

i've tried that myself too.
when you look up and show confidence, people notice that. And they see you in a different way.

like we say over here in Mexico ( i don't know if in another countries too):
"Como te ven, te tratan"
("the way they see you, they treat you")

I have no problem with walking on the street :)
I don't care where my head is!

I walk like that normally :p My grandmother says I'll drown if it rains :(

I did not always walk like that because most of the time I'm consumed thinking deeply about something and I completely forget the world around me even exists.

And yeah, people will treat you according to what impression you give them of yourself. Works like that. =)

Buying alcohol underage is one of the best uses of this knowledge, but only in certain places. I found that it was easy as hell to get away with it in D.C., but here in the Bible Belt, you're carded as soon as you walk into a liquor store. One of my friends was so paranoid that he wouldn't even let me hand him the money in front of the store.

Confidence is a nearly priceless commodity in so many instances. It's amazing how many places you can go just by dressing nicely and walking around like you own the place.
