Learn More About Me

I've been weird today. My thoughts have been all over the place. This could be due to the fact that I don't have to work the next two days (yay for mini-not-going-anywhere-vacations). I'm so excited to just not be at work.

This morning I threw my LSAT prep books away. I don't really know why I was keeping them. I hate clutter and normally throw things away immediately. I don't know if I was holding on to them because I didn't know if I was making the right decision or not, but this morning I looked at them and thought to myself "those have got to go". Every time I'd look at them I would get a little rush of panic.

I read an article this morning about hypnosis, or hypnotherapy, whatever you want to call it. This girl went and got hypnotized to not bite the skin around her fingernails and it supposedly worked for her. She said it's not that she completely forgot about biting them, but it made her aware of it. Like when she goes to do it she realized it and acknowledged that she isn't going to do it. The article said that certain personalities are more apt to respond to hypnotherapy, the ones they described made me think I would respond to it. I actually thought long and hard about what I would be hypnotized for before I came up with a good answer. At first I thought I should do it as a diet thing (which, by the way, I'm not getting it done, but if I were to...) but my problem isn't with one food that I could just ban from my life. I go in phases. One week I'm obsessed with cereal, the next week I can't eat enough peanuts, the next week I'm addicted to popcorn, and in the case of this week: string cheese. So in order to save myself money and the inconvenience of having to schedule a weekly hypnosis, I'll skip the diet therapy. So then I decided I'd be hypnotized into working out every single day. Which I basically do now, but would become a very big problem if I happened to get injured. Or maybe it wouldn't even work that way. Anyway, the basic point of the article is that hypnosis isn't like the movies you see where every time you hear a train whistle you cluck like a chicken. They were saying it's a good thing. Whether it works or not is up to you.

I absolutely hate the word "random". I hate when people randomly say the word random and think they make sense. Random is not a sentence and it bothers me to no end when people (typically females my age or younger) use it as one. Today I was texting Megan about a million different things all at once (like I typically do) and I realized that I am a completely random person. I was talking to her about one serious thing and then switched to a completely unrelated topic with absolutely no relevance (which I also do often in this very blog). And I do it all the time. I am a random person. It bothers me that the word I hate describes me so well. Is there a synonym for random?
