    Day 2 of being "holed up" and I'm feeling more like myself - sharp, calm, productive. Anxiety and stress are gone.

    Watched season 1 of Rick and Morty today (season 2 comes tomorrow), ready to tackle some housecleaning and other responsibilities. Might stay up late and play some Civ. Still eating/shopping impulsively but those are always the last to go.

    Took tomorrow off from work (wish I'd taken 2 now ugh) - I probably spend 60% of my vacation time at home in isolation.

    It's like introvert Disneyland up in herrrr

    INTJ - The Scientists

    pt. 2

    so, i thought about it. jokes on you if you thought i wouldnt..

    yea so after thinking about it a good while i realized a few strong absurdities..

    1. the thing is, its not like i have any self conscious issues or esteem or w/e. i have (always?) felt that my smiles belong where they belong i.e. if someone does something pleasing or if i am* simply in the lightest of moods or think of something fun, bam. smiles all around. its not a deficiency. its not like there's a fucking shortage and im not doing my part or some shit.. i smile where appropriate.

    2. its never anything i have to think about. ever. it happens when it happens, meaning now i have to be conscious of it at all, for this rando who just so happens to exist in the world. some jagoff telling me i need to do it more assumes im part of whatever ridiculous world view they have that ppl around them need to always be smiling or some stupid shit to which, the audacity?

    3. and possibly the most absurd one yet.. it just dawned on me the connection with anybody whos ever told me i needed to smile more are specifically the people i dont/wouldnt like in the first place. meaning i wouldnt smile at or around them to start with. the assholes are lucky im not straight up scowling at them.


    lil backstory so it doesnt look like im just rage ranting here (even though i kinda am)

    sitting in applebees the other night i overheard part of a conversation and turned around at the right/wrong moment to see this dude telling a gal she should smile more. and the look. on. her. face... lol i damn near resonated with that face. it was that whole >=O super exaggerated like she just stepped in a shoe full of vomit face. and the clueless prick kept babbling on, whole time he's talking she's still got the >=O face and our eyes met for a second and i just shook my head like "i am so sorry, random lady meatbag..." then turned back around.

    i wont say it spoiled my dinner (cuz it didnt. ate like a pig, i really did :D ) but it stuck and stunk in my mind all the way home. had to think about it good and hard. like, i know he said it to her but that shit infuriated ME..

    ........ok. i think i got it all out.

    INTJ


    Finished my 442 page(Before glossary,references etc.) Child Psychology textbook in 6 days. My head is tired haha. A solid 8 weeks ahead(In an 8 week class) in my readings though, which leaves me casual reviewing time before testing instead of initial learning.

    I'll give myself a day to relax then it's time for the last few chapters in the Developmental Psych book which build further upon the one I just finished.

    I watched both seasons of Rick and Morty in two days (only because I had to wait)

    I enjoyed it - this clip is pretty much me in a nutshell:



    I think I'm gonna change my sig haha

    Just tell her "look, I don't want to be a doctor and I don't want to clean up dog poop. That's all I've got right now. I need to understand how the world works before I can decide how I want to contribute to it."

    Mic drop. Moonwalk away.

    If she's demanding you follow her plan for your education, I'm assuming she's also ready to support it in some way, by paying tuition fees or housing or such. I can understand how it'd be difficult to argue against and how she might make you feel ungrateful. Have you tried proposing an alternative to her? Like, what you want to do in life, and really display your enthusiasm about it. Perhaps she isn't seeing any ambition and is worried you'll just hang around the house. Of course, this is assuming you know what you want to do in life. If you're not, you could suggest waiting a year, and try different jobs to help figure out what you want, before going back to education and her plans. A reasonable compromise I think.

    Yes, you are right ,they will pay my tuition fees and in turn I have to repay them as soon as I can(she is getting impatient 😬).
    You made me realised that I might not have been verbal enough about pretty much everything so I may as well tell them what my plans are.
    I can't lose any more years since I flunked my high school senior year last year and have to repeat it.
    Unfortunately,I can't find me a job cause that is going against my parents(say they make enough to buy me things I need).
    I would love to take a break,go hiking or backpacking but alas!
    My hands are tied,I have to play by the rules and see if I can survive.

    I just read your thread on INFP's suddenly disappearing and the following doubts for you. I can so relate, there's this one INFP in my life who's doing it to me. I like consistency, and I get that people need alone time, but at least tell me that's the case if you disappear for weeks or months when we usually talk everyday.

    It erodes at my trust and willingness to put effort into the friendship, and I'm now at a point where I have almost convinced myself that I overshot the significance of our friendship to begin with, thus it is better for me to completely withdraw now.

    No point to this post. :P Just to say "I relate"?
