Has Jimmy jetted off to a deserted island? Did Jimmy die? Is Jimmy stuck in a snow storm? While I wish the first were true, Jimmy is in fact right here (here being Baltimore, of course). I only blog when I feel like it—otherwise, it becomes a chore—and who the hell wants to add one more thing to their list of to-dos?
But truth be told, I have been in an awful mood for the past few days and I thought I would spare everyone from my wrath. It’s rare that I put my emotions on display, but when I do, I can be vicious. A recent situation has had me seething and it’s only fitting that I’ve since become entranced by the show Revenge. While I would never go to such extreme lengths, I will see to it that those who have wronged me will experience one thing: regret. It sounds harsh—and that’s because it is—but there’s a lesson to be learned here.
A guy once described me as ruthless. I was initially offended, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that he had completely misread me. In his defense, I had been cruel at the time. In my defense, I was cruel because I was standing up for myself and couldn’t let someone so ignorant make so many people feel inferior. Though I tend to lack sympathy in necessary situations, it doesn’t mean that I am that way all the time. In fact, I am generally a very generous and kindhearted person—until someone backstabs me and tries to get away with it.
Despite spending a large portion of the week plotting watching Revenge (seriously—I bought Hulu Plus solely because I wanted to watch all 13 episodes), I have been able to be somewhat productive and positive.
My internship at Girls’ Life is going well; several of my assignments have been posted on their website and I recently transcribed an interview with Jackie Emerson, aka Foxface, a cast member of The Hunger Games. I haven’t read the trilogy yet, and quite honestly, I never planned to, but after hearing the interview, I am curious to see if I would like it.
As weird as it is, I decided that I kind of enjoy the unpredictable weather. On Wednesday, I was driving with my sunroof open and basking in the 70-degree weather, and today, I had my seat warmers on high and my all-wheel drive activated as I drove through snowy streets.
Something else that brightened my week? Meeting a sorority sister for a delicious sushi dinner. Though I don’t get to see Christina as often as I’d like to, we can always pick up where we last left off, as if no time had passed at all. Plus, she always makes me laugh!
I apologize for the negativity in this post, but that’s a reality of life.
How do you handle unfavorable situations?
Have you read The Hunger Games—is it a worthwhile read?
