• I used to be cool

    And now I`m just embarrassed. Let me explain. A lifetime ago I used to be confidant, almost egotistically so. No guy was immune to my charms (mostly because I wouldn`t allow him to be) and I didn`t care about silly things like whether he liked me, how I looked or how it would look if I made the first move. I was unstoppable and unflappable. Scenario: 1996 and I`m in a bar (The Garage @ the Neelsie on Stellenbosch campus) with my girlfriend, Ingrid. We`re both at Res and basically do everything together. We know each other`s deepest darkest secrets and share pre-adult angst like only a professional first-year student…
