- The Avoidance Master.
I am the Master of Avoidance. I deflect all emotional situations, any uncomfortable moments, and any confrontations of feelings, really.
Confessions and intense emotional turmoil freak me out, what can I say? I think people should deal with their problems (I do!) in silence, or go see a shrink. I've heard they're useful (but they also happen to give me the heebie-jeebies). At this particular moment, I am avoiding a discussion with my boss which would go something like this:
- Why, hello, how have you been?
- Oh, fine, Boss, just dandy.
- I was wondering, have you finished that report you were supposed to hand in on Monday?
- Yep, Boss, I sure did. It's just my dog ate the paper copy I'd printed out for you; I was relieved when I remembered I'd saved a copy on my floppy disk, but it turns out my cat peed on beforementioned floppy disk, so it went all crazy on me. I have to start all over again, and I'm guessing that'll take.. well, two weeks, I'd say?

So, yeah, I'm avoiding being fired by hiding out in my cubicle. It's amazing how inefficient you can be while still seeming hard-working.
Cheerio; and if you're feeling down, you know you can always talk to M.E. (which stands for My Earplugs, duh).
- 16 already? Listen up!
Yo, space-cadet, hear me out for a sec', alright?
These are basic truths that you should just live with instead of ignoring them or punching them in the face:
-Eating a whole jar of Skippy's peanut butter is not O.K., even if you say you'll run it off afterwards.
-Mom and Dad? They're actually very cool. And you know what? They're usually right.
-You may want to stop calling people all the time. Mobile phones? They turn your brains to scrambled eggs.
-And texting? Seriously!? How about just talking to people?
-By the way, you think you're in love, but you're not. Love is a good thing; not this tortured, passionate image (which can only be defined as Lust) that you have.
-Discover a sport you love. It'll help you blow off the steam, and you can eat peanut butter. It's a win-win situation, if you ask me.
-You've got to stop thinking things will just magically "happen" to you, like everything will unfold and it will all be fine. It won't be, especially if you're unprepared.
Why am I telling you this? I have no idea. I know you won't listen to me anyway!
- Roll my eyes? Never!
I don't find things that frustrating, and I even mind-scold myself if I think something negative about other people.
But: I do find narcissistic people slightly irritating, but only in a 'Man, I feel sorry for you' way, because I don't think people can base their whole self-esteems and conversations around their beauty and still have a full life. Probably gets kinda boring, even.
Also, a friend's endless (and very detailed!) babble about his girlfriend and their sexual mishaps will definitely make my eyes go 180°. I don't need all the gore, buddy; if I ain't asking the questions, I don't wanna know.
- I wonder if God is on Plinky right now.
Is there something after we die? I have to seriously change my plans (and my attitude!) if that's the case.
- The Fish List (from the term "sleeping with the fishes". Seriously, how awesome is the Godfather?)
Travel to a place you've always been curious about.
Like Australia. What is up with them having the most dangerous slash poisonous species on Earth, all cozied up in the same place?
Learn to play an instrument.
Preferably one that features on one your favorite songs. Like the violin, so you can play Rossini's "La gazza ladra"!
Do something extreme.
Like bungee-jump. Or air-dive. Or cliff-dive!
Work in a job/something you love.
I hear desk jobs can be the end of you.
Learn to do something you can use when you're older.
I want to learn to paint. It seems like painters paint to soothe their souls, and to breathe more easily.
