I’m not sure this is actually a good thing. my whole body is shaking.
Feeling pretty out of control of my life
jerksquad: Cataloging is my only solace you too?
my mom is currently on a mission to understand my...
this is problematic for a number of reasons: my anxiety is not like her anxiety and therefore makes no sense to her for instance, she doesn’t understand why I’m fine with some things that stress her out (like unpacking after a trip) and have panic attacks about things she doesn’t even think about (like calling anyone I haven’t talked to before/in more than a few months)...
I've got a super long day ahead of me tomorrow and...
but I’m way to busy on the Internets reading about rabies in raccoons and shopping for auto emergency kits for that nonsense. also, my left big toenail is badly bruised and for the life of me I can’t remember what I dropped on it. also also, I’m going to NYC this weekend and I have done absolutely nothing in preparation except make sure I have somewhere to sleep and that...
And isn't the point of Bring Your Child to Work...
None of these people work here. I work here. And if I had kids I certainly wouldn’t bring them here.
There are children and snakes in the library; any...
I mean, at least the snakes aren’t making a mess of the bathrooms. And they’re quiet. Also, snakes don’t have parents who yell at me for telling their kids to put down my stapler and get out of my cubicle.
about 1/4 of my conversations with my mom are her...
the other 3/4 are her trying to talk me into buying/letting her buy me more stuff. I’m not sure she understands how this whole accumulation of material goods thing works. she is a woman of many contradictions… and a very selective memory.
There are few things in life that can’t be improved upon by adding bourbon or...– Me, just now. (via megzam) Megzam is a prophet and truthteller (via jerksquad) Truth.
one coworker just told another coworker to shut up
At the Reference Desk. In front of patrons. In a not at all joking way. The level of professionalism over here is real high today. UPDATE: In the last five minutes the second coworker turned her speakers up to high volume and the other one stormed out leaving a very confused patron at the Reference Desk. What the hell is happening here?

rachael-maddux: Some students at Wilcox County High School in Wilcox, Ga., are planning what will be their school’s first-ever racially-integrated prom. I hate that this is something that has to happen but love so much that they’re doing it. But of course it’s tricky. Like the white-only and black-only proms that are held every year, the integrated prom is planned and funded independently from...
I got about three hours of sleep last night*
which is the only explanation I have for why I just burst into tears during the middle of my webinar. I have generally good feelings about OCLC. Really, I do. *unless you count the extra twenty minutes I got when I nodded off in pigeon pose this morning which I do not.

Things I think when I’m not at home: “I could be at home with my cat right now” “I could be at home knitting right now” “I could be at home napping right now” “I could be at home eating my own [vastly superior] food right now” “I could be at home watching ‘Murder, She Wrote’ right now”

Champions who feel like shit and should have probably stayed home but really don’t want to use any leave and have a deadline and a big meeting today.

I chugged a beer in front of an entire bar in a drink-off against a dude who had at least 60 lbs on me to break a trivia tie. I won. Without spilling a single drop. I am awesome.
This is a thing.

I’ll be over here eating my feelings until further notice
jerksquad replied to your post: sometimes I have something to deal with that I keep putting off and in the meantime I can’t actually deal with anything else I’ve basically been like that re: personal contact for 2 years. Good luck getting out of the rut. Its a terrible one to be in. Even under normal circumstances communication is on the list of Things I Am Not Good At (along with running,...

Like, when I couldn’t quite get it together to get my credits transferred from CUA to UMD I pretty much stopped functioning as an adult and I’m surprised that I a) graduated and b) didn’t loose my job and all my friends. At the moment I’m dealing with- or rather, not dealing with- a some sticky personal stuff and I can’t seem to do anything involving communication...

I think I should know better than to inform my mother when there’s decision-making afoot.
grown-up stuff (or, feelings about accent chairs)
On Saturday: I acquired a compact dryer to accompany my compact washing machine (three cheers for soft, not line dried underwear!) which means that I now own two appliances. They may be compact but they’re mine and I’m responsible for them and owning appliances feels very adult like I’m making some kind of commitment even though the washing machine has casters and lives in my...

end of year things:
I do not like New Year’s Eve because it seems pointless and like a potentially terrible way to start off your year and I would prefer not to go out tonight but just the idea of spending it alone depresses me. I don’t know what I’ll be doing tonight but hopefully it will involve as little introspection (and crying) as possible. 2012 was not a terrible year (no one died, I...
seriously considering cancelling all my plans and...
I just really don’t want to put on real pants. or talk to people. or be cold. I have food, I have booze, I have a Netflix queue full of British mystery shows. I like this plan.

This is not an unusual occurrence (is that bad?) but I don’t usually announce that that’s what I’m up too. It does make feel better that I’m not the only one. Sometimes a body...
