So there was one leftover beer that my roommate’s friend put in the fridge, and I drank it last night while watching IASIP. And now I feel like complete shit. I miss my old alcohol tolerance, but if I have to declare that I’m giving up alcohol, then…
FROM NOW ON, I AM GOING TO STOP DRINKING. BECAUSE IT’S KILLING MY STOMACH.
ALSO I AM GOING TO GO BACK TO RUNNING EVERYDAY. SO MY HEART CAN STILL BEAT.
And stick to submitting my own work.
Do not let people summarize your personality as “ditzy,” “loud,” “arrogant,” “obnoxious.” Do not let people write you off as a distraction to others who are reaching the same goal in different ways.
All of my life, I’ve always been considered ditzy and annoying because my laugh is too loud and I don’t know how to talk in a typical “inside-voice.” And whenever I see my personality bothering someone else, the first thing I do is try to tone it down. But that is so unbelievably unfair to me-why do I have to jump to change myself when it should be others changing the way they perceived me at first? I understand that most people don’t stick to their first impressions, but I wished that other people saw other sides to me besides the stereotypical, Goofy character that I always seem to be lumped with. Just because you can hear my laugh on the other side of campus doesn’t mean I’m a person who can’t take anything seriously in her life. Just because I joke around a lot doesn’t mean I’m insensitive to people around me. Just because I talk out loud in class doesn’t mean I’m a horrible student who isn’t interested in what she’s learning. And just because I talk too much doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t be able to listen to and care for someone else. I’m really thankful to those in my life who have truly gotten to know me, but I don’t want to be automatically seen as that “happy” person anymore. And I’m sure that there are several other people out there who feel the same way.
