    Default Breakthroughs

    Today I did two things: deleted almost half of friends list of Facebook because I don't talk to them, or don't like them, or in some cases don't even know who they are.

    Realized that arguing (some people call it debating) with people is just kind of a bad idea. You only get angry and riled up and most people really have no interest in hearing the other person's side (and I include myself in this) so it's just easier to not get upset about things unless it's something really, really important.

    Have you had any breakthroughs lately?

    As for your question, I figured out how to solve a few technical issues that my other co-workers couldn't figure out so that was pretty cool I guess.

    lol first thing I did

    I get all pissy when "debating" so I just try not to anymore. if you don't agree with me, whatever I don't want to talk with you and I'm sure there's something else we could talk about!


    But yeah nothing new in my world. not much really ever changes.

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    I want to become a drug counselor. I had this breakthrough a little while ago.

    Unfortunately I don't have the necessary means to accomplish this .

    Have you looked into joining a volunteer program that gives you training?

    And yeah, I didn't delete anyone from EoFF. xD

    Writer's block breakthrough! I've been lollygagging with a story idea for atleast a year now (longer, actually, I think), and I finally sat down and put one word in front of another until I made some good progress. Pretty pleased!

    I actually just volunteered for trauma counseling which provides a certain amount of training and I've been looking for more opportunities. I hope to hear back from them soon.

    As for being able to become a counselor, I need a certain amount of schooling that I can't afford, a certain amount of experience, and then I need to take a course and a test, which I also can't afford, before I can be licensed. At least that's what I need for SC. Not sure how it works elsewhere.

    I realized while drawing my face that I have really distinct eyebrows.

    I realized your second point probably a few weeks ago... and then a couple of weeks later realized that I like it anyway. And then realized today that it's more of a time waste than pretty much any other hobby I can think of. It's all ego, no productivity. So my feelings on it are currently mixed.

    I also realize more and more just how primitive of a society we really are.

    Arguing is fun, and I really like it. I enjoy being disagreeable. But I also kind of hate it because then it puts me in a foul mood and I'm already a cantankerous enough person that I really don't need to add that on.

    Plus I'm super passionate so I fume for a LONG TIME. I like being angry, but it's not really healthy.

    I had an amazing breakthrough a couple of years back regarding how insignificant everything, including myself, is. It has freed me from the stresses of life and allows me to always enjoy myself.

    I no longer need anymore breakthroughs.
