Actually, scratch the walking around bit. I'll just get on the used stairstepper I bought.


I think I found a motivating metaphor that works for me. Life, or any activity thereof, is like a stretchy rubber exercise band, like the ones they use for physical rehab. If you just hold it limply, it doesn't do anything. It remains static and boring. You actually have to pull on it to get any benefit out of it. The more you pull on it, the greater the effect/benefit.

Likewise with any life activity; going out and socializing/mate seeking, exercise, etc. You have to put effort in and have confidence you are going to see some results. Blah; whatever. This could use some polishing, but I wanted to put it down in words.


My ex-girlfriend once told me that girls like to dress up when they feel shitty in order to feel better. Sounds useful and since I'm not in the habit of dressing up, I never would have thought of it. It does seem to have a mild effect on how I feel, but I haven't noticed it affecting how others treat me.


From "Odd Thomas" by Dean Koontz: "He once told me that the moodier a woman is, the hotter she will prove to be in bed. This was fatherly advice that I could have lived without."

This is...interesting.
...and in my case (if we postulate it holds for both sexes), true. OH DAYUM I WASN'T GONNA SAY IT BUT I SAID IT. :)

That's it. I'm wrapping up the PS2 and putting it in the hardest to get to Rubbermaid container in my closet.

Background: I hate meeting people.

Remember the telemarketer metaphor for motivation to go out and meet people. I mean, telemarketers have to make some sales, right? Otherwise they wouldn't keep doing it.

Now if you extend this metaphor to meeting people, you can see a direct correlation:

-you have to go through a shit load of people to find some rare ones that you get along with
-you just have to keep motivated by thinking "that's one person closer to making a sale" :)

This metaphor works. Some people have told me it's demeaning, but I don't agree. Keeps me from getting too nervous about the whole meeting people situation, because hey, if it goes to crap, at least you can move on.

Frustration overload!! The sample programming snippet our professor gave us in class is wrong! AND I'VE BEEN TYPING THE DAMN THING IN FOR THE LAST 5 DAYS! WONDERING WHY WON'T IT WORK!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

*pant pant*

Thank God it finally works, even if it's a day late.

As a side note, I'm really going to try keeping this livejournal. I don't really like it, but hey, maybe I just need time. Typing's a lot faster than writing.
