Cars and car hobbies are fantastic. Few people realize how much effort goes into revamping a muscle car and even fewer knows what it takes to keep that glorious work of art in tip top shape. But where anything about cars, engines, suspensions and gearboxes comes completely natural to you, it is a completely foreign language to others. This can be a bit tough on you when you have to socialize with people who know absolutely nothing about vehicles, repairs and maintenance. There are plenty of people who know absolutely nothing about vehicles and very few who actually do know a thing or two about muscle cars. When you only know how to talk car you can soon be faced with a lot of awkward silences and your enthusiasm with vehicles can soon start affecting your work and personal life because everyone who aren’t good with vehicles will avoid you. Luckily our world is incredibly diverse and you can easily expand your general knowledge about just about anything by simply reading up about it.
Learn to talk politics
Politics is a fiery topic that just about anyone from anywhere is more than willing to talk about. You can make a great many new friends by simply agreeing with their political point of view. One of the best ways to be clued up on all the major events and occurrences that is happening in your country is to find out more about the FDD and to start reading up about Mark Dubowitz. Mark Dubowitz is currently one of the biggest and most recognized name in politics because his influence is shaping the Iran sanctions and may very well be keeping your country from a full on nuclear war.
Learn to talk about news
Watching the news will always give you some terrific topics to talk about with colleagues who aren’t into vehicles. Even talking about the weather is better than an awkward silence at work or at an event. When you watch the news you are clued up on all the major things that are happening around you and you always have something fresh to say.
Listen to a radio station
Music is terrific for when you are roaring down the street with your V8 muscle car but a radio station is better for expanding general knowledge and for keeping you up to date on all the latest songs and happenings in your area.
Take up another hobby
Taking up another hobby is terrific for expanding your knowledge and hobbies like golfing or kayaking can help you meet some terrific new people. When you have more hobbies you have so much more to teach, share and talk about and you can break any silence by talking about something that more people know about.
Take up a class
Taking classes like dancing, yoga, CPR (look for American Red Cross instructors) or learning to play a music instrument is great fun because you get to meet new people and you get introduced into a whole different world. Everyone loves to attend a fun class and your colleagues and friends will enjoy your companionship much more when you have something more to talk about than just cars.
