someone you know is about to compete.
give them some encouragement. don't let them be afraid to win or to lose. let them know you're behind them. even if you think they can't possibly win, be in their corner so that if they don't win, they can still have the chance to feel awesome afterwards. tell them they're a rock star. make sure they know how cool they are to be giving it a shot in the first place. after all, they could just sit on the sofa like a lump. but they're not a lump. they're putting themselves out there and they want to go for it. find a way to enjoy the competition, no matter what happens in the end. it's how you play the game, but it's also how you act after the game has been played, you know.
every day is a syk day.
