"You don’t have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your own ground. If you do, that shows how shaky your own position is."

"Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently."

It’s been 2.5 years (on and off) of dating boyfriend. Wowza.

Pity Buttercup. I won’t let her walk off the exam table and it makes her mad.

And the Cap

However, I did manage to see Captain American this evening and it was a lovely time. Feels on feels.

Emergency Vet Visits with B.

Little hedgie isn’t feeling to hot. She managed to shit out blood and what appears to be internal tissue. So… just got back from the emergency clinic in O’Fallon (a 1.5 hour drive each way). She was uncooperative as all hell for the vet but sweet as can be with me and she’s starting to warm up to boyfriend. Since the vet wasn’t an exotic animal vet I wasn’t totally comfortable with her giving B sedation to do x-rays. So, I’ll be getting up at the crack of dawn to try and get an appointment with an exotic animal vet in CoMO. Since we have them, they just don’t do emergency hours. 

I love my pets too much. But I need the unconditional love of animals.

Sometimes I really miss this handsome devil. I kept my life together when I had him around. I loved him.

Tonight has just been one of those nights where the weight of the world fell down and I realized how completely worthless I am. I suck at my job, I’m not heading in any direction professionally/academically, I’m horrible in my relationship. Really… I’m just bad at life. Idk. I’ve been fighting for so long and I’m tried of pretending to be invincible.

Stress puke (or food poisoning) will help me lose weight. Right?

What will matter in 5 years? Likely none of the shit you’re occupied worrying about.
