The names Phil, a Theater Major at Edinboro University and a Brother of Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity. I’m loud, blunt, and to the point.
I read books on small talk, body language, and how to survive in the real world - I don’t think I was prepared as a child to make it on my own. Some books I have a difficult time saving money.
Some fun facts are that I own a pair of toe shoes, however they make my feet smell really bad so I don’t wear them as much. Also, I don’t watch movies too much — I’ve never seen Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Fight Club, and at least a thousand other movies that you think a Theater Major would see. There is a book called “The A List” that lists 100 movies everyone should see - I have watched two on the list: 42nd Street and Citizen Kane.
I think everyone should read:
- The Fine Art of Small Talk by Debra Fine - EVERYONE needs a little work on communication. This book covers everything about starting a conversation, even with the most difficult people.
- What Every BODY is Saying by Joe Navarro - So, not for just anyone. This probably benefits Communication and Theater majors the most. It was written by an ex-FBI agent and explains body language and nonverbal social cues to tell when someone is uncomfortable in a situation or plain lying.
- How Do You Work This Life Thing? by Emily Post - This book gives advice for the “newly independent on roommates, jobs, sex, and everything that counts.” I think its great to look at for new college students and people trying to get through otherwise awkward situations.
Okay, I’m done giving you a reading list or explaining my life. There is an “Ask Me” button, use it if you have any questions. :)
