norahwinters tagged me, so uh.. here
1)I cut my own hair. A year or so back I decided not to pay someone to do something I know for a fact I’m never going to be content with, so i began to do it myself, and have been generally pleased with the result. Apparently other people have, too, because I’ve since started cutting the hair of others.
2) I get terrible anxiety in cars, no matter who is driving. I’ve never been in an accident, nor have I witnessed one. Whenever I am in a car and I’m not driving it, I white knuckle grip the hanger on the roof of the car. I have no idea why this is, and it is very, very frustrating.
3) I have been to Cuba seven times. It is by far the most beautiful place I have ever been, and I will forever have warm, fond memories of it. The ice cream there is amazing, and the pizza there is literally the best street food I’ve ever had. Though, I will never ever get the taste of goat milk out of my mouth because of my trips, and I will always hate them for that.
4) I have been called a sociopath by the three people I have loved the most in this world, and I think this is very telling.
5) I have written three things that I will never show to anyone. They are for me, and me alone. When I lie awake at night, worried that the all encompassing nothingness of me will consume and eventually beat me, I read one of these three things, and laugh. When I am alone on the bus or the train, and worry that I will always be alone on the bus or the train, I read of these three things and think, that would be okay. When I lose all will to continue on, when I have no hope, no real agency to continue what I wish to make a life out of, when I am absolutely convinced that there’s no possible way anything I want is anything that I can have, I read one of these three things, and realize I am probably right, but I am contrary, and so, I will not allow myself to be right.
uh UH uh swamiswampy, lordturkeyhammer, metamorpher, thecomicnut, green-eggz-and-cam do it do it do it.
