these are really flighty birds. and there’s also something deadly about them too i’ve noticed. i’d never want to be on the wrong side of a swallow but then again who would know what the right side is?

also, coffee without milk is … different. i’m trying to depuff and it’s just so hard, i really love milk in my coffee. i realize these are first world problems. but i guess if my world doesn’t have running water and flush toilets for all of it’s citizens-is it actually “first world”-if there even was such a thing to begin with.

put that in your coffee and swallow it. LOL!!!

anyhow, something i was talking about with a friend the other day…how we’re very similar in that we love learning, but hate taking advice. maybe there’s something about that whole process-advice i tend to associated with a process of me having to swallow information i didn’t ask for because another person thought i needed it. and occasionally yes, yes i do need advice but i just associate that whole process with this warped view of looking at people as if they are broken and you can fix them instead of seeing them as human beings who just want to be loved. i also have a huge issue with giving advice, who am i to say how you should do something? that’s my weird pet peeve.

i also have nooooooo idea how to do paragraphs which is why i’ve started a new one without knowing if i’ve finished my thought in the previous one or not. maybe it’s the word swallow that i find humiliating. it’s not a pleasant word to me because i think of “swallow your pride” or some other such phrase that tends to shame people just for making a mistake which is something we can all expect to do because we’re all humans walking [or in my case stumbling] on this planet.

and honestly, i’m making that active choice to cut major slack…i recognize that i have now invited those particular situations in which opportunities for cutting major slack will now be calling on me. because that’s the way it is [bisses dion].




yeah i’d rather think of it as the bird. even though those birds are wily bastards. i do love them. they do what they want.
