  1. Re: #9 Are you able to elaborate? How old are you now and how old do people think you are? When you were 3, did people think you were 5? When you were 13, did people think you were 23? Or 17? Or 14?

    Has #16 caused you to get rid of friends who are experiencing drama or unhappiness? Does your desire for drama-free happiness actually induce drama and unhappiness? (for example, people getting angry at you for not accepting their present unhappiness or dramatic situation?)

    #1: this causes me to think that washing your hair, or conditioning your hair, or brushing your teeth, or clipping your toenails, are actually incredibly exciting events in your life. Perhaps if you hold on to the excitement you feel while washing your hair, you can extend it to the drying part. I’m not sure how you would do this. Maybe if you imagine that drying your hair will bring you to the magical place in #13? No. Then drying your hair will become a constant disappointment, instead of just a dreary task.

    Maybe you should stop actively trying to dry your hair and let it be naturally air-dried.

  2. (I stopped checking LJ and just saw you moved here, yay! :) (littlesparrow over there, aspenglow on flickr)

    I am the same way with about 98% of this list!! craziness. except people always think I’m younger. the last time I went to a museum… they asked if I was a student… as in… 18 or under. (I’m almost 30).
