    I will be so happy when they catch this squirrel that is getting into the wall of my home. They tried to block it out, but he managed to find his way back in again.

    I can't help but question whether or not I'm losing my mind or if multiple people are testing me at the same time.

    Accidentally drove into oncoming traffic today. You'd think after 3 years of living on the same street I'd know where to turn, but no, apparently not.

    I have a massive headache, but on the brighter side at least I had no work or errands today. It could be worse. Lol

    Why do weekends go so much quicker now that I am a working adult? They felt like they went slower when I was still in school. I'd kill for that again. Monday mornings come way too quick anymore, and I feel like I can never really enjoy my weekends

    I don't believe that you are losing your mind but it might be using a defense mechanism to cope with stress since you mention multiple people testing you (the sense of being "tested" can bring stress since when you feel tested there is also the need to respond to the testing in a way that you will be successful and overcome the test in order to move on ending the testing process and demonstrate to the people testing you that you can overcome the challenge imposed by them) . Then again this sense is just a matter of perception as possible stresors are read and interpreted by the mind (mainly based on past experiences and ways used to handle similar "stimulus" in the past). Remember that the mind interpretation of reality is not reality per se but just an interpretation of it as received by the five senses that is then processed by the mind and it's perceptions then brought to reality for you to take action accordingly.

    The best thing to do is to always remember that the only person that in reality you have to prove anything or test is yourself and that external influences or perceptions doesn't matter (since each life experience and perceptions are unique), also don't feel overwhelmed by the mind since it will always be moving from idea to idea (as a monkey going from branch to branch as thought in some philosophies from India) and that is the price to pay for having a mind that is capable of creativity (not without mention of all the electrical and chemical processes that happen daily in the mind that influence behavior and how we feel (it is comparable to a chemical lab in which the chemical cocktail produced for the day can influence our perceptions, feelings and patterns of thinking during the day).

    How do I say "I love you" to someone without actually saying those three words?

    Friend: What did you get for Christmas last year?

    Me (wearing purple flannel): This shirt actually.

    Friend (whom I'm out to): What, did your parents Google "What to buy your lesbian daughter 101"?

    Me:

    Today's interview wasn't a slam dunk like the first one was, but I'm praying that it went well enough to get the job.

    Depending on the context and level of confidence you can use a gesture (a handshake or a hug), a gift (a post card, a food that the other person might like or an item that they might like "it doesn't need to be something expensive" ) or simply be there for them in their time of need.

    I love getting discounts when I go shopping. I just got a jacket from Hot Topic that is normally $50, but with coupons and rewards I only had to pay a little more than $15 for it!

    I do most of that when I can, already. I want to show him that I really care about him and his well-being. I love him so much that I can't stand it. He's the kindest, gentlest soul I've ever had as a friend and every day I want to be close to him and hold him close to me and tell him that everything's going to be okay.

    Making a playlist of albums I listened to as a teenager really got me in the feels tonight. Forgot how much I loved this stuff.

    We attended the funeral of one of our workmates today. Such events are always sad. May he rest in peace.
