The joys of having an anxiety disorder are just so many its sometimes hard to even understand just how lucky I really am. Sometimes, I get the joys of having severe chest pains where it feels like I am dying, sometimes I get so exhausted after one day of social interaction and sometimes I just don't sleep for five days.
Another lovely side effect of the crazy pants I seem to wear so well is that when I am faced with a lot of things to do, my brain shuts down and becomes useless. I instead of writing the 6 articles I need to write I spend all night sending creepy face-swapping snapchats to every single person I know.
Did you want to know what it looks like if I swap faces with Dave? No? Because you got to see it if you follow me on snap chat and thats an image you will not ever be able to get out of your head. Something like if a neanderthal if they had some mousse.
Here are some other tips for managing anxiety if doing the things you have to actually do doesn't seem to interest you at the moment:
So while some people say that being anxious is not fun, imagine, I get to do ALL THIS when I could have only done the one thing I was supposed to do. How jealous are you?
Today was a slightly strange day so to try to clear my mind before I go to bed I am going to engage in the lovely act of train of thought typing. I am afraid of where we end up but let's give it a try shall we?
I am Afraid of What Will Follow
I am very upset. The internet has chosen the exact moment that I pushed published to give out and delete my entire train of thought. Now I have to start over. The Oscars are happening right now. I wish I was at the oscars, I mean I don't because I hate people in general and that is a lot of people. A LOT of beautiful people too that is even worse. I am genuinely afraid of pretty people they are far too intimidating. How did my last train of thought end up talking about pickles? Man that was gold, that you will never get to understand the natural progression of how I went from talking about god knows what to pickles. I only remember that it was pickles because I could see the word under the posting thing as it just spun uselessly. My internet has been a real brat lately. If anyone knows how to fix that please let me know. I fear the only solution is move or become Amish. I would be the worst Amish person ever. I mean, I hate the outdoors and I like to stay up late. I feel like staying up late is a lot more work when you are amish. Think of how many candles you would need to lit to read Harry Potter late at night. Also no snapchat. That's less fun. I mean I guess you could just talk to people in the real life times, but I mean, that doesn't have filters and stuff. Showing Dave snapchat filters was the highlight of my weekend. He literally laughed so hard I think he may have teared up a bit. SO enjoyable.
Fuller House is on Netflix. I repeat, Fuller House is on Netflix.
This is not a drill.
It is amazing. So cheesy, so majestic.
Please go watch it right now okay.
If you want to see my reactions to this show, go read my twitter. @tanosaurusrex
If only I had,
eyebrows that would,
look proper and nice,
instead of these crappy,
little half dead caterpillars.
My newest comic book review is out and I very much would love it if you would all go read it and make me look good.

This week I reviewed a comic called Wynonna Earp, a cowboy-monster fighter who is kind of like Buffy meets the wild west. Really interesting, did not think I was going to enjoy it half as much as I did. Strong lady characters are something that have really become important to me, maybe because I want nothing more than to be a strong lady character myself, or because they have always been important but it's just only recently that media is allowing them to be portrayed as much as they have been.
Agent Peggy Carter
I think it is extremely refreshing to have female characters whose entire purpose isn't Love Interest or Ex-Love Interest or Love Interest's foil. I would (or have) watched shows and movies simply about these women and the lives they lead. So movie and television studios, please continue to bring us interesting and compelling bad-ass ladies and we will continue to watch them. Now, please excuse me while I search on Ebay for a Rey costume for Halloween.
I don't often feel smart. I especially don't feel smarter than Dave. He is a very smart dude and can build and make whatever. However today, I got to have a two minute moment where I felt smarter than him.
The moment your significant other tries to light a fake candle on fire, is a moment you get to feel like a winner. Also a moment you have to worry for the safety of your belongings, because if said significant other is attempting to light things on fire that is an issue for sure.
Buying new sweatpants,
Is among the best things.
It is like slipping into,
A portable feeling of home.
The soft inside lining,
The clean and warm feeling,
A new colour to enjoy,
The elastics not stretched out.
The magic of owning sweatpants,
Is one everyone should feel.
Man, woman or child,
Everyone should give them a try.
My life is a series of counter productive moments.
I go to the gym, and then I eat a bunch of ice cream.
How do people live life without making such ridiculous horrible mistakes?
So someone invent me some of these things:
So if someone could be a dear and make those things I would be really appreciative.
Who wants to make a Harry Potter reread book club with me?
I don't really feel like reading a new book I just want to reread a book I already know is amazing.
I was doing a full reread of the books not too long ago but I got distracted before the Deathly Hallows so I am going to read that now. I keep wanting to start it during the week but if I do that I will never go to sleep and will end up skipping work and that is frowned upon.
So, Who else wants to read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows with me? Everyone? Obviously.
Let us discuss the following things (or at least keep them in mind while you read):
Any ways, off to the books with you all!
Me: Hey Winston,
Winston: EVERYTHING IS AWFUL
Me: Okay but, why must you yell?
Wintston: DON'T YOU GET IT EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE!
ME: No, everything is exactly perfectly fine why must you bark and yell?
Winston: I HAVE TO YELL A LOT ALL THE TIME OTHERWISE EVERY ONE WILL FORGET I EXIST!
Me: No, seriously I will never forget you exist.
Winston: OKAY BUT DAVE ISN'T HOME AND THAT MEANS HE IS DEAD OBVIOUSLY SO I HAVE TO MAKE NOISE TO SUMMON HIS SPIRIT BACK TO HIS BODY.
Me: Why don't you come sit down and take a nap?
Winston: MAYBE BUT WILL YOU GIVE ME COOKIES IF I DO!
Me: No, you are on a diet remember?
Winston: WELL THEN I WILL SNARF ON YOU!
Me: I do not care. You would do that either way.
Winston: Hmm.. true. Okay I will take a nap BUT I AM GOING TO BARK QUIETLY UNTIL I FALL ASLEEP!
Me: That isn't the point. You are the worst.
