Man, it’s been a weird week! It started off with Saturday’s Rick and Morty’s inspired road trip to Silver City, New Mexico for Szechuan sauce that ended in a big joke not just to us, but to apparently a LOT of other nerds, then it’s gone on to periods of complete rest and relaxation and now back to “holy smokes! Let me catch a breather!” status. It’s nothing new for me as I’m always finding myself being pulled away from wanting to barricade myself in my apartment and paying for it emotionally later on at the most inconvenient of times.
As some of you know, I tend to go through periods of time where some people wonder if I’m still alive (those that don’t follow me on social media), and I go through brief periods of time where I feel like I need to connect with the rest of humanity. It’s rare, but it happens. I think I’m sort of going through the latter phase right now as I have felt the need to be surrounded by my friends a bit more than usual lately. I wish I could understand it, but I can’t. Being around my friends has been something that I have been feeling I’ve needed lately. Thankfully I was able to hang out with some of my closest on Saturday and Monday. There are not very many feelings in the world that I enjoy more than having the emotional sections of my heart overwhelmed with positive loving feels like I get when I’m around the people I want to be around. It’s better than any drug or alcoholic beverage out there, I can tell you that.
Funny though, me being an INFJ makes people think that I am some sort of social butterfly who basically has a place just so that I can sleep and keep all my stuff in. That couldn’t be further from the truth, in all honesty. Nothing makes me happier than being at home watching nerdy documentaries, Star Trek (I’m still on TOS as I’m watching everything again but chronologically this time), or sports all while watching whatever is going with the weather outside. I’ve learned in the past year and a half that I really love sunsets, by the way. Something about watching them brings me such peace and happiness that I can’t really describe it. It’s really what I look forward to every day. I know, I’m weird, but you already knew that.
A strange thing happened to me again yesterday that hasn’t happened in a while though. I think that I got a slight touch of loneliness. I KNOW!!!! Crazy, right?! Here I am, some sort of self-proclaimed “One Man Wolfpack”, some dude who rolls solo deep, actually feeling alone in the bad sense. It’s strange when it comes along too. It always shows up when I’m doing the most mundane of tasks. Yesterday it happened while I was pre-rinsing the dishes I used for dinner. I just happened to stare at the wall as I stood in front of my sink and realized the silence aside from the faucet running and it tripped me out. What made it funny, though, was that shortly after that as I was taking a shower I was convinced that somebody was in my damn apartment with me. I wish my brain would make up its damn mind. Hahaha! “Nobody is here! Oh shit! Nevermind! Somebody is here, man! FREAK OUT!” I don’t know. I wish I knew the answers to the questions of my life. I just gotta keep on keeping on.
On that note, time to get myself hyped up for the gym after work again today! I’m glad this is becoming a habit again. I missed that about myself!
Until next time, my friends!
