Bro Call: Introspection and Re-evaluating Life

nattyHello bros, or should I say, intellectual peers. Chad here again.

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking in these past few weeks, being very introsepctive or whatever, you know? I’ve decided that the way I act on a day-to-day basis is totally immature. People look at me and can’t see past the backwards baseball hats and the empty cans of natty. It seems I can’t be taken seriously anymore. And you know what? I’ve become disgusted with what I have become.

That is why, starting today, I will make efforts to no longer be considered a “bro”. I have thrown away all of my loud polos and given my Dave Matthews albums to charity. At last I have realized that my display of empty liquor bottles impresses no one. I have since recycled them and gotten a collection of premium gin.

Now I am sitting in a leather recliner, sipping on gin and tonic (for the taste, not to get drunk), while listening to Thelonius Monk. THIS is the life, not that immature “I Love College” bullshit. If anyone wants to have a philosophical discussion about what it means to be “human” in the 21st century, I am prepared to debate. Maybe I’ll call up Sebastian one of these days and see if he wants to go to Webster’s. We could iChat on our Macbook Pros.

Farewell until next time, valued readers.
