"On a scale of one to awesome, I'm super cool."

Comments (11)
  • Please ignore the odd angel /devil / heart thing that I carelessly slapped on a stripey background as my new "It's February, so let's deck the halls with pink and red and love!" header. That will be changing tonight or tomorrow or very soon. Fixed!
  • If you haven't already voted on the name of my sock monkey, please go do so. It's important to practice voicing your opinions, especially for those with a presidential election coming up.
  • Remind me to never again ask the internet to marry me or even date me. The responses to this entry were, for the most part, entirely depressing. Thanks to the three people who love me, though! You're my new BFFs, whether you want to be or not.
  • Oh my gosh, if you don't want to be my BFF, please do not tell me about it. I can't handle any more rejection this week.
  • If you're super cool and like helping people out while being helped out yourself, donate $2 to Golfwidow and get a guest blog entry in return. She's a brilliant writer and oh-so-funny, so you'll be getting way more than $2 worth of greatness. This is an especially tempting offer to those of us who foolishly signed up for Blog365 and realized on January 1 that we had nothing to say.
  • If anyone has tips on how to overcome social anxiety (I'm seriously becoming a hermit here), leave a comment or email me.
  • It's been a while since I've mentioned this, but I'm seriously in love with Aku's eyebrows. They're all flamey! And awesome! And flamey!

Seriously. Take up the Golfwidow offer! I know I will be here pretty soon. She's such an amazing blogger that you'll have people flocking to your site from the sheer awesomeness.

I second you there, Skritsy, it's worth way more than just 2 bucks.

You can't get over social anxiety by staying in the house. Get outside, and make eye contact with people, even if it's just a cashier in a shop.

It's easy to say, way more difficult to do, but it's only going to get harder the longer you leave it.

Thursday's Child - I wish she would accept more money per guest blog! I'm going to have to find some sneaky way to donate more. I'd pay $2 per sentence to have her guest blog here!

Solomon Broad - I'm trying to force myself to get out, and I am much better about it if I'm either going shopping or meeting large groups of people. I've had quite a few individuals wanting to hang out with me recently, though, and I avoid them like the plague. It's rather sad, really.

d - My mom's dragging me out tomorrow to go shopping. Baby steps, right?

Scrangie - That would be the one reason I would consider returning to therapy — for social anxiety issues, not for depression. I would also consider meds for that, too. It gets pretty bad when I'm not at school.

Jamie - Oh my gosh! I'm honored! HURRAY! You're totally on my BFF list now. Is there an internet equivalent to friendship bracelets? There totally should be.

If there's one thing I can say about getting treatment, be it therapy or medication or both, it's this: Don't wait. Seriously. When it gets really bad like it did for me, it gets even harder to ask for help and it only gets worse from there. You're not alone, and I'd hate to see you suffer.


Ah, look at me. I'm leaving long, rambling comments again. Sorry. Heh.

How to overcome social anxiety... I have no, freaking, clue... Sorry. =/

Hey now, I'm behind on blogs. You should know I'm always willing to be BFF ...ladies.

You raise an interesting paradox, though; asking the internet to marry/date you, but being unwilling to go out and be social.

I haven't voted on a name yet because honestly I'm having a hard time choosing. Even the ones I suggested I'm kind of like "eh, I dunno" now. How long are the polls open?

Roller skating solves social anxiety, by the way. It's true.

Scrangie - First things first, I'm going to go chill with my boys in Texas. That's always a good start. Then, I'll look into some counselors in the area, since it'll be nice to have a phone number handy when I go back to school. Thanks for the encouragement, though! I <3 your comments, rambly or not.

Jeremiah - Haha, glad to hear such an honest answer. I have no clue, either! Hurray. We can start a club or something. With matching t-shirts.

gRegor - Sweeeet. BFFs with gRegor. My life just got a whole lot cooler.

And yes, I do realize that it's difficult to master a social life while actively avoiding one. But I'd totally leave the house for the right guy. Or even the not-so-right guy, probably. I just need someone to kick me in the pants right now, I think. Maybe that someone is a friend or maybe that someone is a counselor... Who knows? I do know that I'd like to be done with this hermit thing, though. It gets old.

The poll supposedly closed today at noon, but I'm not so sure on that. I think I mistyped the date. We'll see.

I'll have to give rollerskating a shot. I haven't been since ... the night of my eighth grade graduation. Whoa dang. That's been a while. Maybe that's my problem!

Since I used to rollerblade for a living (seriously) let me just say that it is an awesome workout if you push yourself.

Also, since you can take yourself out into the public it can help you overcome social anxiety (unless of course you just use it to skate away from people, in which case you fail.)

It's a thought. I vaguely remember your plants to "rock a bikini" and I highly recommend rollerblading in public.

Just don't do it inside of malls. They really don't like that much.
