I saw this on the internets today:
…and I was all like “holy shit! Yes! That’s it!”*
Except, actually, I initially read an abridged version. What I saw was: “NEVER PLAY IT COOL ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU LIKE SOMETHING.” (Apologies to Mr. Pegg, but I like my shorthand version a little more).
Ooh! Ooh! Actually, here’s an even Cliffs-notes-ier version: GET EXCITED.
That’s got a nice ring to it, eh?
GET EXCITED. Don’t hold back. It’s okay to like things. It’s okay to really like things. It’s okay to feel happy or content or satisfied when you’re doing/watching/thinking about/whatevering things. And if it makes you feel self-conscious, remember: No one really cares. EVERY-DAMN-ONE OF US has got their own thing(s). There should be no shame in your game. GET EXCITED.**
*And knocked someone into a backflip, a la Lucy Van Pelt in this clip.
**Even if you get excited about making a graphic of things you are excited about with the word EXCITED written on it. For instance.
