I don't want your life

The only thing standing in my way right now is myself.
I just have to take more action and do it quicker.

I've been thinking about how to deal with my family.
It's not really a healthy environment for me to be around
and I dread holidays pretty much year-round.
I've talked to multiple therapists about it but the anxiety
still hasn't gone away. It wouldn't be great to stop
talking to them but I do think I'd feel a lot of freedom.
They want everyone around them to feel more stupid than them.
I guess I should just refuse to feel stupid or judged.
Even if they judge that doesn't mean it has to bother me.
They all act like they have some type of weird authority.
But they don't...
Unfortunately it's just up to me to deal with it, telling
them is just going to make them mad because of their egos.

My friends and I are working on a music video shoot.
I've got mixed feelings, because I really want it to happen
but I always act super weird when I make vide…

AA meetings anyone? I may be an androgynous asexual

It makes sense.
I finally took a quiz that basically told me I'm in the range of asexuality.

Maybe that's why I find:
- People's sexual habits so gross.
- The obsessed hypersexuality of our culture disturbing.
- The focus on sex in regards to equality much less relevant than equal pay & treatment in social/professional settings.
- Sex to be a personal source of anxiety and depression.
- Most people to be a total turnoff. 
- It uncomfortable to fully identify with any one mainstream sexual identity.

I tend to hang out with people who don't talk about sex much. 
It just seems impolite to me to do so.
There's a strange liberation from possibly identifying myself as asexual. 
Maybe it's not my depression talking!! 
Maybe that's why dating, relationships, and sex have all been borderline awful to outright awful for me.
It's like a cloud lifting when you say, I don't see the need for all this nonsense, and I don't even want it.
That doesn't mean I don't want romance, but now isn't the time. 
I fall into these weird depressions when I try to go out with someone or seek a relationship. I feel so terrible, why do that to myself?
Time to focus on building a life that's worthy of someone awesome joining in the future.
There's an asexuality spectrum, so some asexual people do still have sexual relationships. 
That may be day.
Not today, YAY!!!

The funny thing is, I first heard about asexuality from a documentary that my then-partner and I watched on Netflix in 2013.

The girl I went out with most recently told me I look androgynous. 
I was like, yeah I guess I do. So do you.
We both were like, androgynous people are hot.

A dreary day, aren't they all though?

It's been raining on and off for almost the past month now.  I don't know at what point it's reasonable to stop blaming that on Hurricane Flo/the tropical depressions. I think all of that is done now.

I wanted to schedule a photo shoot; I've used the weather as a decent excuse - if we want any shots outside, it needs to be nice outside dang it. I finally e-mailed a photographer contact this morning. No more excuses.

I was at an amazing show last night, so consumed with myself. Thinking about how I didn't want to be alive. I realized how all I could think about was myself. How lonely and miserable I feel. The band was so good that they helped me snap out of it from time to time. I kept thinking how that was supposed to be me, and that I'd never figure out how to be on stage and be proficient. Just feeling so sorry for myself. It's one of those moments you're supposed to be fully present and enjoying but you're just stuck in misery.

Luckily I'm …

Love and loss

I'm not sure what the weather's like today because I haven't really left my room.

Last night I went out and saw this amazing local band.
I almost don't want them to get big because I want them all to myself.
But they're such a good band. I was so mesmerized by the singer, in awe and envy and admiration.
I was pretty lonely, and overall feeling crappy, but in the middle of their show (I had watched 2 acts play prior), I just got this high. It felt so good, it was kind of a release. Their show was that good and it brought me so much joy. I thought, that's why I love music. But highs wear off and I'm right back where I started.

I'm just lying in my bed loathing myself and not loving myself. I wrote a note in another journal that said "self love, when does it stick?" It's like it's a choice I have to make every day, all day, and I can't seem to make it.

At the venue last night I was getting texts from somebody I thought I had broken up…

My inner Carrie Bradshaw & Alex Jones

I've been inspired by the strangest things.

I watched a little bit of Sex and the City. Carrie Bradshaw's enthusiasm for her romance/sex column is inspiring. Who doesn't want to be curled up in their bed or in a NYC coffee shop writing an article or post? That's how I feel when she's writing her column on the show.

As part of my marketing studies I've been learning about all types of brands, including some polarizing figures. Let's talk about Alex Jones. What a nutjob...but what's made him so effective? Why is he such a topic? I've subscribed to his Infowars newsletters for awhile. Today I decided to listen to his show. Despite not agreeing with much of anything he said, I can see how he revs up a base. He kept talking about how the "globalists" were battling his army, the real resistance. He uses classic psychological tricks to unite a common people against a single evil force. I guess he really believes that stuff.

All this led to contem…
