Hyperbole and a Half: This is Why I'll Never be an... →
coyotechips: b0ttled-rage: I’m just so annoyed at everything right now. I think I deserve a good crying session after this horribly stressful week. And maybe a nap. Yeah, that’s my plan for later this evening. I’ve done that a few times this week myself.
I am a homebody
because making mac and cheese while drinking tea and surfing Tumblr while fir tip syrup steeps on the stove are all things that make my soul happy.
Day 137: one of your wildest dreams
Being a bestselling author. Of course, I’d probably go full Salinger and hide in the woods immediately.
Day 136: if you were 12 and looked at yourself in...
If 12 year old me is seeing me at work, no. Twelve year old me would perfect her noose knot. If 12 year old me is seeing me with my boyfriend, though, she’s probably happily surprised. Driving around, sure. Living in a place that presently is not my mother’s house. That’s the thing, though, 12 year old me didn’t have a very good grasp of the world. I’m not sure...
Day 135: is change a good thing
Sometimes yes, sometimes no, sometimes it’s good but difficult….
Day 134: do you have a reason to smile right now
I have food and internet. Whoo-hoo.
Day 133: if you had to choose between a million...
I can make a lot of grand gestures with a million bucks. And there’s nothing I regret that hard.
Talk me out of quitting my job.
I keep trying to, and I keep failing.
Day 132: do you believe exes can be friends
If it was absolutely mutual, and nobody did anything really wrong, and the feelings weren’t one-sided or lopsided, yes. It is very very very very rare that this is the case.
Day 131: what do you worry about
I worry about driving my boyfriend away. I’m really good at making people run. I worry what my second job will say now that they know I got hurt while working for them (even though it was my own stupid clumsy fault and I don’t want to file for worker’s comp). I worry about my sister being so far away and what my nephews will be like without the rest of the family around to...
It’s a sprain and I don’t have to work til Wednesday. I would happy dance, but…
Sitting in the doctor's office
Sprained my damned foot again. Gotta love being clumsy. The gurgle from the fish tank is upsetting but the fish themselves are soothing…..argh.
par-la-fenetre: sarahthecuddlebug: par-la-fenetre: A little joint pressure a day keep the doctor away! T is for Toe walking. Serie: The ABC of Stimming Nothing is quite as awesome as taking your shoes off your sore feet at work when no one’s around and just walking around on your toes for a while. *happy sigh* THIS. (─‿‿─) Who the hell decided we should wear shoes at all anyway? I...
I’m getting a wee bit obsessed. I’m all right with it.
Day 130: if you were deserted on an island, what...
A ship or plane and a crew and enough money to pay them. Obviously.
Day 129: favorite month of the year and why
October. It’s usually chilly but not bones-achingly cold. Hot chocolate, tea. Pumpkin patches and Halloween. Color-changing leaves. Scarves and jackets and the taste of frost on the back of my tongue when it’s late out and the ring around the moon when it’s bright. Ahhhh.
If Tony Stark can have panic attacks and still be Iron Man, I can damn well have panic attacks and do whatever the hell I want.
Day 128: what is your life’s purpose
Fuck if I know. Maybe it’s to educate my family so they quit thinking autism as mild as mine is something to freak out over. I just wanted them to be aware that it seems to run in our family, as I’m not the first. They should be looking out for it so their kids don’t have to put up with the massive amount of shit I did, so that if they have this they can get any help they might...
Day 127: do you believe in second chances
Very rarely. That boyfriend I just mentioned has not and will not receive a second chance. If it’s something serious like that, pretty much no.
Day 126: have you ever been betrayed by someone...
Yes. I once caught my little brother reading my journal aloud to a boy I had a crush on. Also a boyfriend I had fucked a bartender in my bed while I was babysitting my sister’s kids. The first one actually hurt more.
Went to Facebook with my diagnosis...
getting a whole bunch of condolences. Ummm, hello? Still who I was yesterday. My brain is not any different than it’s been my whole life. You all can shut it.
So it turns out that I officially have Asperger syndrome. It’s kind of strange. I’ve suspected it for a while but literally everyone I mentioned it to told me no. I’m not weird enough. Or something. So I have that happy ‘I told you so’ feeling. I have the ‘yay, it’s finally official and I don’t have to defend it’, I have the “I learned...
Free Tee Friday!
threadless: Since you’re all pumped up from your midnight screening of Iron Man 3, we wanted to dedicate this Free Tee Friday to Mr. Tony Stark himself! Reblog this post by 10AM on May 13th for a chance to win any one of our Iron Man tees in your size! Which tee is your favorite?
Day 125: have you ever gone out of your way to...
I drove 50 miles at 3 am once to make sure someone was okay, when I had to work at 9 am. That was well out of my way and made him pretty happy.
Day 124: have you ever had feelings for someone...
One of my ex-boyfriends was married at the time. It still keeps me awake at night sometimes.
Day 123: do you believe teenagers can fall in love
Yes. I also think that at that age, it’s incredibly easy to mistake lust for love, or longing for love, or any number of things for love, because you haven’t felt most of those things before and they’re very new. No experience to compare it to.
Day 122: which activities make you lose track of...
Sex, surfing the net, swimming, reading.
Day 121: what do you think about stereotypes
Day 120: what is your zodiac sign and what do you...
I’m a Cancer. I think it means I was born in late June to late-mid July.
Day 119: something you hope you never have to do
Return to employment at Megalomart after I leave it.
Day 118: what people in your life inspire you the...
I honestly am too dissatisfied with life right now to answer this question.
Day 117: if you were to get a tattoo, what would...
I have a tattoo.
Day 116: one guy who means a lot to you
Let’s step back from the obvious. The obvious would be my boyfriend, or my brothers, or my nephews. So, my coworker. The other cart puller. He’s the father of a boy I went to middle school with. I wish he was my father.
I have a rainbow box kite. Be jealous.
Day 115: is it possible to be single and happy
For me, it’s very possible and very easy.
Day 114: do you like when people are protective...
To a degree. I like when my friends get angry when supervisors are being shitty toward me. I don’t like when people come up day after day and tell me how many carts I can or can’t push, or tell me that girls aren’t made for physical labor and heavy lifting. I also don’t like it when someone’s being threatening, say on the bus or at a party, and some guy just stands in...
Day 113: do you believe that if you want something...
No. Letting people know what I want is generally a surefire way to prevent myself from getting that thing.
Day 112: what is the most important part in a...
Knowing when to speak and when to let things go.
Day 111: do you wish upon 11:11 even if it may not...
I rarely remember that that’s a thing people do.
Day 110: something that makes you happy
Being in my hammock with a book when nobody is around trying to make me a zoo exhibit.
Day 109: if you were a super hero, what kind of...
Telekinesis, maybe teleportation.
Day 108: is it easier to forgive or forget
