Nine Things I Learned About Life from Shaving with a Straight Razor

1. Don't be such a wuss.
How bad can it really be? If it is that bad, can you live with it? If the answer is yes, then get going.
2. Focus. 
You really don't need to think about that right now; and you really do need to think about this. You're a talented enough guy, and if you can put your whole self on this one thing for a minute, you'll be surprised what you pull off.
3. Be efficient but don't rush. 
You'll fuck up.
5. There's nobody to blame but you.
You're the one holding the razor.
4.  Don't get cocky.
Just because it's going well right now does not mean that one second from now you won't be marveling at how much blood can come out of a little cut like that.  
6. Plan well, then execute with confidence.
Too much confidence will kill you, but so will too little.  A shaky hand is not what you need right now, or ever. Collect yourself. Once you know what you need to do, do it.  But remember...
7. Things can get messy.
There are bumps in this road and you need to be prepared. Bring a towel. There's only so much a styptic pencil can handle.
8. Everything they told you since the 80's was crap.  Chicks do like danger.
9. So do you.
