      Friends

      3 years ago

      I was extremely happy to hear that a long time friend entered into a relationship with another long time friend. It was cute and exciting and...

      Then I realized...

      One of those friends is insane. Overbearing, controlling, angry, and while not physically abusive, definitely verbally abusive.

      I'm not so excited about it anymore. Actually, more fearful than anything.

      On a happier note, I found myself chortling like a hyena today after exchanging an awkward stare with a fellow driver at a red light. We had been singing the same song on the radio and looked at each other while still screaming the lyrics... we then found ourselves with a sudden realization and the girl became noticeably uncomfortable. She smiled awkwardly and I just started laughing uncontrollably.

      Always lovely to see somebody on the same page. smiley12.gif

      Never thought I'd be that guy...

      You know those people that dread the mere thought of walking IN to a doctors office? I mean, not doctors, but just any sort of health/hygiene capitalization institution? There is a very reasonable chance that you are that person. Most people are. I have, however, never been that person.

      Until today.

      This isn't to say I take pride in that, for it is just a personality trait I hadn't ever developed.
      -
      Sudden Fun Fact!: I have PTSD.

      While the fact I just exposed my be fun, the outcome of it is horrendous in many situations. If you know anyone with this issue, you could be very well aware that a pretty basic trigger is invasive actions that is also surprising.

      Which brings me to the point. I now dread the THOUGHT of a heavy, hardly (for me) understandable accent having optometrist and their stupid-air-fucking-asshole-peice of-puff-shit-machine.

      Really?

      The community on here can be some relentless pricks. So you didn't like a comment I posted, mod the comment down. Cool. But don't run to my page and down mod every single journal post I've made. It's very immature and it makes you look like sad fanboy-no-lives who's job it is is to troll any person who says bad about anything regarding RT.

      I guess this IS the internet, though.

      If my criticism of the Egg Nog video is just me and no one else, then I guess that just makes me an asshole :P

      It's weird

      4 years ago

      I fairly recently put myself into a relationship with a girl that has been previously diagnosed with MDD or Manic Depressive Disorder, also more commonly known as Bi-polar disorder.

      Man was that a ride.

      Did teach me a some things though, showed me an interesting perspective, and helped me be a more understanding/nurturing individual... basically grew me as a human being. However, above all it showed me something much more valuable as a life lesson.

      Don't fucking date a person with a severe psych disorder. Idiot.

      I dealt with an extreme case of this disorder... someone basically fitting the textbook description.

      This---> Is what I dealt with...

      Never again...

      I just sat through more than 2 hours of lagging out of the "Achievement Hunter GRAW 2 clean-up" thing and accomplished nothing but frustration. I didn't even get to meet any of the guys. Fuck that, I thought it was going to just be a simple, no hassle, let's just join and boost achievements type of event.

      Man was I mistaken...

      Sometimes

      4 years ago

      I try to start electronics with my mind.

      I figure if I focus hard enough, maybe at some point something could work.

      ...holding my hands out in front of me may be a little excessive, however.

      I need better things to think about.

      4 years ago

      I am just sitting here reviewing past episodes of Red vs. Blue, and feel nature calling.

      While relieving myself, I think "Man, what if, as I am standing here relieving myself, a fragment of space debris, or (Donnie Darko reminiscent) a hunk of a planes fuselage comes crashing through the bathroom ceiling? If in that moment, the debris was to hit and kill me, that would be how the paramedics/family would find me. A respectable young man, never once in his life subjecting himself to potentially (in death) embarrassing circumstances. Yet with his penis in hand and urine/blood soaked flooring surrounding him under his mangled body, THAT is how I would have been sent off. In that moment, all hopes of a decent image being past on to my loved ones in death would be gone. This would have all happened to one undeserving of such a fate, for their life was not a shameful one full of what the public views as gross and irresponsible. I would forever be known as the kid who died and pissed everywhere after being a victim of an extremely unlikely occurrence by being hit with a deadly object flying through the home he felt so safe sheltered within. People would laugh, I would be on the internet, a couple of years go by and hell, the "Mythbusters" might make a lighthearted special regarding my case. My life would be a cruel joke..."

      ...I high-tailed it out of the bathroom.

      Oh my

      Is it bad to question whether or not to postpone something to another day, solely on the idea that postponing it would mean I have have to wash some more clothes to wear?

      Truly, if I didn't have to go anywhere I would wear the same clothes for 2 weeks at a time.

      Yum.

      makes me feel like cousin IT. I need to cut it or something before it gains self awareness and tries to kill me.

      Yeah, its presence is that overbearing.... enough that I am afraid of retaliation.
