Living Life to the Fullest:

"It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive."

How to Talk to Strangers

Here are some tips if you're not comfortable with it yet:

  1. Don't go straight for the super model - warm up with someone unintimidating and friendly first.
  2. Avoid talking about yourself or anything touchy (politics, sex, money) - just keep it light.
  3. Be in a good mood. Eat a cookie, whatever will boost your mood, and then it'll be easier to come up with good things to say.
  4. Be agreeable. Just go with it, even if it doesn't seem true, play along as an experiment.
  5. Don't be rude. It's not cool, it's insecure. That's why celebrities don't do it. You can always leave, but be polite about it.
