Unrescuable Schizo

Between you and me, I’m feeling pretty rotten. Stress, fatigue, and self-doubt are throwing a party and Girl Friday is the guest of honor. I hate it when I write posts that are totally emo, but I guess none of us can be perfect. The following is a litany of information you might have inferred and/or never wanted to know.

I eat too much junk food. I don’t sleep enough. I only do three loads of laundry when there are at least six to do. I can’t seem to shut my mouth. I forget important things like birthdays, all the way down to insignificant things like butcher paper and getting my oil changed. I would rather watch six hours of TV than many other things. I scream and cry and then wonder why I feel so miserable. I dispense advice for free, even though I don’t know anything at all. I shouldn’t be trusted.

I’ve been taking writing classes for over a year, and I just barely managed to turn in four and a half pages. I never remember to take in my dry cleaning. Many times I don’t read labels and throw my things in the washing machine. Sometimes my clothes shrink, but I never learn my lesson. I used to pair my socks and neatly arrange my underwear. Now, my desk is a mess, so is my car, and I’m just happy when I have clean underwear. I wear flip-flops in every season.

My favorite words have four letters, but I am addicted to the thesaurus. I play the piano (poorly), I used to be able to do a triple pirouette, and I thought I’d go to law school. My mother said I was good at arguing. I’m good at a lot of things—applying eyeliner, boiling pasta, and making mixed CDs—but that doesn’t mean I want to be a makeup artist, chef, or DJ. I want to be a writer, but I have a lot less confidence in that than my other skills.

I wake up early to goof off, and I’m never on time for work. I consume too many caffeinated drinks, and I always forget to drink enough water.

That’s me, Girl Friday, in a nutshell. I hope that’s cool with you.

    GF! What is this: “I shouldn’t be trusted.” Yes you should!

    You are a great friend & a great writer. Whenever you have doubts just call me up, you know I will make you feel better! 🙂

    I don’t even know why we have non-four letter words. They really are everything you need. It’s not my fault that swearing is so fun. I think you are a really good writer & should go for it, what do you have to lose? Plus you always have the eyeliner thing to fall back on.

    Okay, I can be trusted, but just not on my emo days, k?


    Hi! Thanks for being cool 🙂 Yes, I do have the eyeliner thing down. It’s a handy skill, as is knowing all the fabulous four-letter word combinations!

    These are just a few of the things I love about you – and that’s not even counting your directness & complete honesty. How many people would be confident enough to come clean with their bad habits? I’ll answer that: not many. Besides, if these are your worst habits, remember they could be FAR worse! Think: nicotine addiction, alcoholism, lying, cheating, stealing. Suddenly being a few minutes late to work doesn’t sound so bad!

    wanna know a secret….

    ……you’re kinda my hero, so don’t be so emotastic (even tho this was a few weeks ago).

    honestly. i think it’s great that you’ve got a steady job (as boring as it might get), a CONDO!, and aspirations to be something greater.
