To be fair, I don’t do well in cold weather either, if I did not have access to temperature control, I probably would have broiled in infancy.
I’m just really bad at getting warm when it’s cold, and cooling down when it’s hot, and I feel fluctuations acutely.
It’s 3.45 am and I’m still too hot to sleep properly omfg.
Summer is only just beginning, last year in the midst of summer, on those 43-4 degree days, I just sat and stared straight ahead because I couldn’t focus on anything.
I do not do well in heat. This summer will be a nightmare.
Goodnight dear pals
I accidentally typed opals and I thought that was a nice name, then I remembered that opals are supposed to be bad luck despite being really pretty.
Every time I look at my statcounter, I want to stop blogging both because of targeted harassment-level viewing against my repeatedly-stated wishes, but also random creep behaviour.
I spent like 7 minutes complaining about why every Peeta hater is wrong and foolish to my sister today, and soon I will compile a post because all of the criticisms I’ve seen are such bullshit.
oh man oh man ohhhh man the hotels my dad organised look amazing I cannot believe this!
mindfulness is kinda like a meditation type thing where you learn to focus on your breathing or on sounds around you, and basically it can be helpful for calming down about things that are out of your control but really it just feels like avoidance
Aw ok yeah I’ve never really tried any meditation type things so I had no idea, but thanks :D
ways you can get recognition as a male actor
- say things
- do things
- act well
- dress well
ways you can get recognition as a female actor
- be conventionally attractive
- act poorly
- wear something people dont like
- exist in a way that drifts even slightly from traditionally acceptable female behaviour
- wait that s it you only get recognition when you do stuff that is perceived as fucking up =]
The only exception is if you’re a critically-acclaimed white woman who has been in the industry for multiple decades without making a false step, a la Meryl Streep and Julie Andrews.
Having a little bit of ice in places like Texas IS a legitimate reason for shutting down the schools and roads because unlike places that get regular snow, no one here has snow tires or experience driving on icy roads. And what may seem laughable to northerners could potentially lead to accidents and deaths here due to drivers that have had little preparation or experience driving in icy conditions. Come on guys.
I guess the same goes for when there are heat-waves in places like England and everyone’s laughing because it’s really not that hot and the English are making a big deal of it, but elderly people actually die because nobody is used to that kind of weather, and there are infrastructure problems resulting from it etc.
Architecture, civil engineering and civic planning, as well as people’s habits and tolerances are shaped by the usual climate in which they are located, so making fun is a bit ridiculous.
Anonymous asked: Does your psychologist teach mindfulness? I find that apart from not being able to concentrate, it doesn't really solve me problems by just trying to take the focus off them. Is that the point of it or is there a better way to do it? I will ask her myself just this just came to me and I can't wait until next session :(
I’m not really sure what you mean by mindfulness?
I find it difficult to take my mind off my problems unless I try to sleep like a bear or escape into tv/books, but I have found that to be wholly ineffective in the long term.
My psych did recommend confronting my problems, assessing why I was so upset, being realistic about my capabilities and acceptable levels of behaviour in response, and through this making myself understand that they are not the end of the world. She said to focus on them, but not be consumed by them, like see them in the perspective of my whole life?
I’m not really sure, I guess I just try to tell myself that a tiny screw up on my part doesn’t make me irredeemable, and that I can survive this, if I just get to the bottom of why it bothers me, then move on once I’ve come to a conclusion so I don’t dwell? That’s what I try to do. Understand why I feel bad, sort it out, move on. It’s pretty hard but I’m working on it.
