    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Well, that might not be good. You're right.

    Umm...kundalini yoga is good! I've gone to a few classes and it makes me feel awesome. If you do a set that is physically demanding it just makes everything go out of your mind.

    My friends said exercise too. I'll go with that.

    My friends said exercise too. I'll go with that. Exercise is probably a good idea anyway. I think the key thing is something physically demanding, probably.

Actually, I was cleaning up after someone like that when I got dumped call, and the person on the other line.. I'm doing that constantly, and I have to deal with that, and if my tone is wrong, while cleaning up after someone else's mistake, I get reprimanded. But the person in question gets rewarded for doing and gets achievement awards because they're a "positive influence."

    I have to massage the egos of overly chipper mid-western ladies day in and day out, and it gets exhausting.

    Customers are ok, I guess. I'm used to them being crazy and clueless. Most of them leave it at that and are content to let me fix things. Other emplyees though, ask me questions, then feel defensive about not-understanding things or realizing they made a mistake. Half the time there's a customer-waiting on the line, and I have to be soothing for them. I can only take so much of this. I have to provide explanations only to be told "Oh, I'm not a technical person. I'm going to bring the customer on." I tried to get the customer on my line before... but they want to drag it out, and they never understand anyway. It's not even like my explanations are that technical. I don't use jargon to sound more impressive.
    You already know this, but you need a change of scenery.

    And about pot, lol, I was only being half-serious before when I said "Do it pussy". But now you have me curious. The last time you tried it, were you comfortable with your surroundings? How much did you smoke? Your set/setting has a lot to do with how you'll react to things like that.

    Maybe if you did it by yourself and only had a bit, you'd have a better experience. It couldn't hurt.

    And yes, exercise is a good idea too.

    Yeah. What the fuck am I doing talking to customers and overly cheery midwestern ladies?


    California, feeling isolated because everyone else in the volunteer program I was in was hooking up and I wasn't. Not to mention the fact that I had to deal with their relationship drama constantly spilling over into my life. And nobody wanted to hang out with me because they were too busy hanging out with whoever they were fucking at the time. And I was still a damn virgin (I'm not anymore, if you're wondering).

    I guess I have a good memory from then of listening to music and hearing lots of details, but otherwise, it does not have positive associations.

    Everyone told me in my late teens that it would improve my life, and that was the first time I had it, and I did it a number of times... probably not more than 20. It didn't improve my life though.

    Yeah. Emotions are energy which builds up and needs expression. Burning off the excess energy helps clear the perspective to neutrally assess the situation.

    journal writing sometimes helps, too.

    Listen to music? With or without pot? You're probably not going to get me to touch the stuff again. It didn't do for me what everyone was telling me it would. I didn't see new spiritual connections, get a more relaxed outlook on life, it didn't help me get laid, and it didn't give me a sense of humor. The only good thing was an intense engagement with sensory phenomenon I often shut out, like food and music. But sometimes I can get something similar without the weed.

    I know it's a classic story, the IxTX learns to smoke weed or break the rules or some shit and then encounters growth, but I already did that in my early twenties, and it was lame. I just kind of wasted my precious time. What was I supposed to learn from that? How was that supposed to work?

    I don't even think I'm ranting about the same thing anymore.
