So was yesterday.
I don't know how, but somewhere within the past year I've lost my fighting energy. It feels like, well, I've given up.
I have no idea where it all went. I used be such a fighter, stand up for my rights, what I thought was unfair. I started crying when somebody asked me how I came to be obedient. I have no idea why I listen to them, my parents. I have no idea why I keep my mouth shut and submit to [most of] their demands. When did I stop talking back? When did I stop listening to what I wanted?
Yesterday was my father's birthday. He didn't seem like he wanted me there. I sat at dinner trying to shut all of them out. My sister, who was trying to talk to me had to repeat everything she said simply because I somehow tuned her out too. Even the fighting in the car after dinner I tuned out. Even this morning when my mom and dad were talking I tuned out. God, I want to tune them out altogether.
One more month until I fly to Australia. I'm not sure that's comforting anymore.

I'm annoyed, really annoyed and frankly I'd like to go jog to take my aggressions out.
You know what. I don't like to be blown off, especially yesterday. I don't' like trying to talk to someone and they ignore you. You go to say bye and they don't bother talking to you. Thanks.
And today, well I don't like spending even one measly hour with somebody simply because I didn't want to tick them off.
So you know what? Screw this.
I'm not going to sit around and feel like I'm not wanted.
I'm going to have a beer.
[update: I'm slightly more empathetic/sympathetic of the situation now. But still.]
Your Holy Sweetness
I'm a girl who's keeping sane in an insane world. I've been told that I'm funny and people like to buy me Pez and Spongebob Squarepants products. I say bring it on.
