My good friend (the only virgin over the age of 23 I know) and I are going to therapy because we have issues. Probably because I have relationship issues mixed with men issues and she’s, waiting til marriage… maybe. No one can explain my issues to me in depth and in a way I can understand them. She doesn’t know if she has issues at all. It may just be I have a false sense of what a relationship should be so I shy away from getting close to anyone, but I’m ready to combat that and I have no idea where to start.
Why sex therapy?
Because we aren’t having sex. Be it a little asinine, we discussed it and it makes sense. If you find out why you’re not having sex (I’m not celibate or purpose and she’s abstaining for vague reasons) then it could potentially help you figure out what you’re looking for in arousal and potential partners. You can dispute it in the comments.
I’ve found myself consumed with my Myer’s Briggs personality type once again. I’ve become completely obsessed because I’ve always felt as if I was the only person who over thought, who cared too much, and who became completely exhausted being around large groups of people for extended periods of time. Turns out I’m just INFJ where this is completely normal part of my personality. Now that I know there are other people who loathe small talk just as much as me, I’ve become frantic…
This past week, I’ve broken my phone, I’ve bitten off all of my finger nails, and I’ve done a ridiculous amount of good deeds (more than usual). I have no idea why this has stirred my anxiety, but it’s troublesome. Now that I know that it’s in my personality type to be indecisive on things that hold no weight in my life, I’ve become obsessed with wondering why they aren’t important to me.
Then I thought to myself, why is this my first time realizing some of these things? This can’t be right. I looked up ways to help keep anxiety at bay and they all (working out, writing, traveling, meditation, etc.) are things that I’ve been doing all my life, so they never gave me the opportunity to acknowledge I had any negative stress. Then college turned gave me a different perspective on my stress levels.
My fingernails haven’t been this short since my senior year of high school, and I haven’t been this compelled to bite them off since then either. I’m not entirely sure how I can stop biting them, however; I’m sure it has something to do with my my stressful job, spending too much time around people who gossip, and not having any time to do things I enjoy. My brain is fed up and it is acting out by breaking my phone, making me feel ill, and biting off my fingernails. So since I can’t get my instant stress relief, I’ll take a vacation and a stiff drink for now. Road Trip anyone?
On a whim, I was browsing through a Health Magazine article called “12 Signs you may have Adult ADHD” and I fit the description of 10 of the 12. Although it would be nice to be able to explain why I lose my keys every morning and why I can’t seem to keep hold of a cell phone, I don’t think that’s the case. I don’t know why kept reading because the same thing happens with these types of articles that happen with webMD. They’ll basically have you to believe you have some type of terminal disease, when really it’s just stress. Now don’t get me wrong, I probably would pass a test for adult ADHD but that doesn’t mean I need to be medicated or get special therapy. I lose my keys every morning because my mother moves them every night, and I lose my cell phone because I really don’t like being bothered. Agreeing to be tested is saying that I want an excuse and I don’t, but it could also be very helpful in figuring out why I tend to have “Bad luck”. Cath-22 much?

My coworkers have been talking about this show called Duck Dynasty since I started working here. I thought it was some country family in town they all knew and praised, turns out it was a country family they praised, they just live in Louisiana. My coworkers, for the most part, are the Fox News types so I dismissed it on the premise that I wouldn’t enjoy watching white privilege adorn my television screen in a country fashion. One of my coworkers told me I should really check it out because it really was a great show and of course I humbly declined because she just so happened to be the coworker that must have her “Fox Fix” every morning or evening or she’ll be “uninformed”. I don’t speak politics, religion, or food with people who aren’t welcoming to a different perspective and it’s been working for me so far, but she reeled me in. I’m a sucker for a good story. Give me a plot, a premise, dynamic characters and I’m hooked. That’s what she did. That evening I decided to check it out. The show is what I think reality TV should be. It’s hilarious and wholesome and incorporates family, shenanigans, and values which everyone can relate to in some degree. I watched 5 episodes that night and 4 more the next night. The show sparked some hope in humanity for me because I LOATHE reality TV. It’s trash and is nothing more than modern day soap operas. This show is based on family, love, and ingenuity. All of which is missing from a lot of mainstream television. The season premiere was last night. Check it out; it comes on AME Wednesday nights at 10 p.m.
Some people are just nice!
We don’t want anything in return for our niceness but gratitude and appreciation. We don’t want you to hit on us. We don’t do it for the money (although we may take it), we don’t do it for you to tweet about it, we don’t need for you to pay us back. We’re just fcking nice! It’s who we are as people, we’re not trying to pull a fast one, trick you, or anything like that. We simply want to give from the goodness of our hearts because we can and like to. Don’t tell us we don’t need to be so nice, or any variation of that statement. Just like it’s inherent in you to be ain’t shit, it’s inherent in me to help the elderly if they need it, or give homeless people money even if I think they may buy drugs with it. APPRECIATE THE NICE, hell more people need to be nice to you so you can realize that it’s a good thing and not the damn black plague! Get your mind right!
