Experiment 101

I was always jealous of the kids who won first place in the Science Fair. They had come up with some great experiment or invention and tested their hypothesis. Reports were written, grades handed out, and someone walked around as proud as a peacock for the next week. I think those were the lucky kids; talented, brilliant, and the ones the rest of us kicked sand at. Okay, so maybe the sand kicking wasn’t the best idea, but did Hayley really need to cry when she got 99%? I was happy with 51%, for goodness sake! Perhaps it was because I could never come up with a good enough experiment. Granted, creativity in the science lab was never my strong suit (the chemicals blew up because they hated me; it had nothing to do with their properties!) but I like to think it was because my experiments were a little too mature for my age group. I’m going to stick with that story anyways!

What about men? How can we find out more about them in the least harmful environment? Is it possible to find out if every theory we already have in place
is true? Surely they can’t all be that simple, can they? I have taken it upon myself to embark on a research project: online dating. Now don’t judge me just yet! The plan is to create myself a kick ass profile, meet some cool guys, and learn more about men in general from some good conversation. True, this isn’t going to be all roses. Men are disgusting pigs, but hopefully I can steer clear from those and connect with the more mature, independent fish. Honestly, I have no idea what to expect from this! I am hoping to find a friend or two, and it should help pass the time!

I wonder if those blue-ribbon kids have found a way to predict the future, accurately. I would like to know what’s going to happen with all of this! Then again, isn’t it true that life is a highway? Ah yes, time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
