    Annnnd what grinds my gears is the muzak the play at the clothing-store I'm currently working in as a student-worker for this week. I get that they want to make the shopping experience more pleasant for the customer, but if I have to hear one more smooth jazz / lounge-rendition of another song, I'm going to scream. Or fall asleep.
    I hope they play Careless Whisper, one of my favorite smooth jazzy store songs.

    Never gonna dance again....

    Sleeping 4-5 hours a day is finally really catching up to me.

    I guess I will really be forced to take a break for the week. I hate it when I can't contribute more to my personal growth.

    I worked at a Kohl's for a while. A lot of popular music... looped. I just wanted to stab something in my ears at some point. At least there was a handful of songs I could tolerate. And two singers I actually liked. But for the rest, I'd rather there be lounge music since I can tune stuff like that out easier. But I dunno, there are annoying lounge songs too.

    Whatever the case, most retail places have the same music; some fast food places too. So if I ever go shopping I cringe. Those songs are seared into my skull.

    On a side note, there's this smoothie place that opened up recently, and their music does the opposite of grind my gears. Probably the best public place music I've heard in a while. They have some world and alternative. The only other time I've been okay with a retail/eatery's music is if it plays rock or if it's something interesting like what Starbucks plays sometimes. I've also been really pissed with Starbucks playlist too though so it's very hit and miss.

    Oh wow... I had to block someone off of Skype for the first time ever. It was someone who I had talked to for a while and I thought we had some level of mutual respect, but then the guy decides to cut me down on how I conduct myself and how being honest only goes so far because it is only appreciated up until a point. And that me pushing for people to be honest with one another would make me lose my friends and even cause problems with my fiancÚ.... WHAT? WHUUUUT?

    I didn't immediately block him, but long story short there's no way we can get along at this point. So yeah, I might have to stop interacting with people, but not friends. No friend talks like that to me. I know that much. And I'm not even going to address how ignorant a statement that was about me dealing with my fiancÚ.

    Oh good lord I just realized we're not too far from Christmas season. Thank god I work in the back office where I can play my own music loud enough to drown out the store's. I'd kill myself if I had to listen to the same 6 songs on repeat starting at 6AM.

    I hate how paranoid I get a lot of the time. If someone misspeaks: they're lying, if someone forgets to text: they hate me, if someone didn't hear me: they're ignoring me. If someone talks to me: they're only humoring me. I cant take this mindset anymore. It's driving me insane
    We all have our demons. If we're not fighting them, then we've befriended them.

    Emotionally abusive people. Especially when you can't remove yourself from the environment and already have self-esteem issues. And passive aggressive people as well. I hate getting things thrown at me that they didn't tell me about before with a "We just did this for you, but you're ungrateful as always".

    I mean.. it's kinda hard to express gratitude before you know what they did for you, or am I wrong here? I also wish it didn't immediately make me sick with stress when things like this happen, especially when I have to work or function like a human being and not an emotional wreck. Argh.

    You're in no wrong, Angel! Situations like that can be so stressful, even when you know you shouldn't be stressing.

    Try not to let such things get to you! You're a super awesome and kind person that don't deserve such debbie downers :O

    The fact that I have to move almost all my stuff from dA to nabyn, cause dA let me down too many times.
    So many titles and descriptions to copy-paste.
