This is what a couple of the most successful people say: “I don’t think about it, I just do it.” I think this is true for everyone—the person who thinks about their weight, the person who goes to the gym, the person who does the laundry, the person who goes to bed at a normal time.
When I was a student I used to do a lot of work out, but unfortunately I got fat and I kept it off by drinking a lot of alcohol. I don’t know where I learned this, but I think I learned it from a friend who I called a barista. He didn’t drink, he just made sure that he got a high score for his work.
One of my favorite drinking stories is about a guy I used to know (actually a long time ago now) who was also a barista. He had been drinking heavily for some time, and one day, after calling his friend and telling him that the bar was closed, he found his friend sitting at the edge of the dancefloor, taking it all in.
When a person drinks hard, they are naturally attracted to other people who drink hard. I think that is what happened to my friend, and I think it is what happened to me. A person who has a drink will easily find a person who has a drink, and a person who has a drink is more likely to find a person who has a drink.
When you first drink, you are not fully aware of everything that is going on around you. For example, if you have something that you are wearing, you might not notice that your leg is on fire, nor that there is a dog with you. But you do notice that it is a hard night out. So, if you are a person who likes hard, and you are in a state of intoxication, it is likely that you will notice things that you were not aware of.
People who have a drink are able to see more than when they are sober. They are aware of their surroundings but this awareness comes at a cost. When you are drunk you become more aware of your surroundings, but you notice that other people around you are also drunk. This awareness puts your own intoxication on a much larger scale, and is something that can be very dangerous.
In a way, this is because alcohol is a drug. When you are inebriated, you start to notice the people around you around and the general atmosphere of the room. You notice that they are inebriated as well because of the same reason.
You might have guessed it from the name, but this awareness is the reason why you notice the people around you around, but not the effect the awareness has on you. You notice that they are inebriated because they are being aware of the fact that you are aware of them around. So while you are aware of them around, they are unaware that you are aware of them around.
We use the example of the awareness of the awareness because, well, we really aren’t aware of the second of two possible outcomes. The first is what we’ve already discussed in this chapter, and the second is what we’ll discuss in the next one.
It is a strange, odd thing to realize that your awareness around something is dependent on the awareness around it. The reason you don’t notice being aware of something (like drunk people) is because you’re not aware of it around. You’re not aware of it around because you dont notice it around. And that is why the second case is also an odd thing. While the first case is a little less weird, it’s still weird.
