What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

I need to quit smoking, yet again... other than that, I really need to learn to put myself first when necessary. I tend to give, give, give and not stop to think about what's best for me in the long run. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being able to help people out, I just need to make sure I am doing okay before I spread myself too thin and it begins to wear me down into a useless heap.

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

I have quite a few. The one I'm currently trying to beat is my energy drink habit. I added the cost up and realized that energy drinks are currently costing me more than my smoking habit. And that's really not a good thing.

I'm weaning myself off caffeine (sort of; more like avoiding the withdrawals) by substituting it with store-bought Starbucks espresso. That way instead of spending five dollars a can (and thus, five dollars a day on workdays), I'm instead spending eight dollars a bag (which should hopefully last me at least two weeks). That's a sixteen dollar a week savings. And sixteen dollars a week is about what it costs me to get to work. Ergo, by switching to coffee instead of energy drinks, now I'm getting a free ride to work! ...or something. IDEK.

[Of course, I'm not going to get into the fact that I'm only getting charged around sixteen dollars a week because I have to get a ride from a coworker, and this is after my shift was switched. And while I worked my previous shift, I got an additional two hours a day and my coworkers for that shift were willing to give me a free ride to work (in fact, they REFUSED payment for the rides). Losing 1/4 of my paycheck + having to pay for my ride to work = MY SAVINGS, HOW QUICKLY IT IS GOING TO VANISH ON ME. SOB.]

...and there's a perfect sign that I should be going to bed. I'm rambling. Which means it's sleepy time. Especially since I have to be up in six hours to get ready for church. Le sigh.

Staying up late. Tonight is a good example of that: I've got a cold and I am going to be liturgist at church tomorrow, yet I'm awake at 2 AM despite needing to wake in about six hours. I just know I am going to be sniffling my entire way through the service, and it won't be because I'm touched by the Spirit or moved by the new pastor's sermon.

Other than that, I also need to work on my road rage (being tailgated and high-beamed by a BMW <strike>the brand of vehicles whose drivers always treat me like shit</strike> at 1:45 in the morning <i>in zero-visibility fog</i> DOES NOT HELP with that either) and holding grudges against males whom I feel have treated me wrongly (every guy from my stepfather to my first love to certain guy friends to that random yuppie guy in a BMW - different from the douchenozzle half an hour ago- who started yelling at me that I couldn't drive).

On that note, I heard Adele's "Someone Like You" which reminded me of a guy who'd wronged me... followed immediately by Cee-Lo Green's "Fuck You." Best musical pairing EVER.

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

There have to be more than a million things that I need to stop doing. One of them being feeling sorry for myself. I have a habit of making myself insanely depressed over small little, insignificant matters and letting them bother me to the point of stress. Then to make matters worse, it starts to visibly appear on my face (in the form of zits) and that tends to make me even more depressed. I can't help it. I guess I really do want someone to hold my hand through everything and let me know I'm doing a good job. I love the praise, and I wish I would have received more of it growing up. Being my own person is really difficult and more often than not I feel like I'm not doing anything worth anything. I just want to do something special. Or maybe I just want to feel special somehow, only I'm not who I want to make me feel special. Ugh, I sound like a crazy person or something. Big whoop, right? I mean we all want to feel special. Oh well, I guess I just have to get out of this slump and just get on with life already. It's not going to wait for me and really when it comes down to it the only one I can rely on is myself.

Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?

I hate this question personally because Im part narcissist and we never see beyond our love for ourselves and attention...lol jk. I am, but thats not how we all operate. its how i operate. But i digress.
I can do both of these.
In five years I see myself married. to who I do not know, only that I will be, and it will be what i was looking for this whole time, and she was practically in front of me this whole time.

I'm having a hard time being myself right now. I noticed someone took me off FB and I severed ties with someone that I thought was going to be a better friend than he turned out to be. I shouldn't place my definition of self on other people, yet I can't help but wonder if I'm that fucked up. Maybe I should just go to bed instead.

It has come to my attention lately that I am a hitting (another reason why I relate to Toki) and it needs to come to an end. Whether slapping on the ass, playful shoving, or full on punching in the arm, I can't seem to stop.

I used to do this when I was younger too, I think it was a defense mechanism of some kind. Anyway, the other day I raised my hand and my friend Nikki (a heavy metal dude who is easily two feet taller than me) actually flinched, and I realized ugh I'm THAT person again.

So I'm attempting to turn over a new non-violent leaf. Wish me luck!

Вопрос дня: Зарубежное кино

не в коем случае не стоит снимать ремеиков.
У меня два любимых фильма это Александр и Кровь и Шоколад.
Я конечно ничего против русских актеров не имею.но лично мне было бы противно смотреть как они пародируют фильм.Да и не будет таких эффектов.все таки русским постановкам в изображении далеко до американцев.

What’s your favorite media or news source, and why?

Мой любимый медиа источник - Это журнал " Rolling Stone". Мне нравится в нем подборка и подача материалов. Освещение культурной жизни за рубежом и России. Обзор политических новостей. Можно с увлечением почитать о знаменитых людях планеты. В журнале печатают их биографии, актуальные интервью и откровенные мысли. " Rolling Stone" дает объемное представление о том, что творится в мире. Все самое горячее, без купюр. Современный, хорошо иллюстрированный, стильный.Советую обратить на него внимание.
Из всех радиостанций предпочитаю "Эхо Москвы" на FM 91,2 МГЦ.
Из телевизионных новостных программ выделю канал Рен ТВ с Осокиным и Максимовской. У них в передачах правдивые, объективные комментарии с хорошо подобранными горячими сюжетами. Этим журналистам веришь, так как они профессионалы своего дела.

I should stop leaving my dinosaurs around. They are a falling hazard. I wouldn't want Evil to fall and hurt herself. Most people would say I need to stop slaughtering families, or people in general, but to those I say fuck you. I control the population. I'm like a hunter. I just hunt you know, long pig?

What is your biggest regret? Did you learn from it or does it still plague you?



I used to have regrets but then I remembered if that[whatever it is] never happened, I wouldn't know what I know now. you should make as many "regrets" in life that you want...take a chance it might be worth it, if it's not then it'll just become something from your past that made you into the person you are.


I do not regret anything I've done because it's EXACTLY what I wanted to do at the time.

It would definitely have to be my eating. Which is perfect, I was going to talk about this.

Last weekend when I was upset with Adam about the "facials" thing (has it been a week already???) And I cried for 24 hours off and on, I didn't have the desire to stuff my face. That's such a huge step for me!! I am so excited about it!

Speaking of Adam I asked him what he'd do if he got a girl pregnant. "Panic and demand an abortion." Like, accidents happen! Not that I believe in most of the "accidents." I think most of them are preventable and are just ill-informed or lazy people. But despite that, Adam still wouldn't welcome a child. He wouldn't accept responsibility. And I get the feeling he'd blame it all on the woman. I mean, I don't want to accidentally get pregnant, and I will be using 2 forms of birth control, but I wouldn't turn my back on a child just because it's incon-fucking-venient... Whatever.... I think we should stick to cuddling...

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?

I need to stop taking the fucking bait... every time people say or do some insensitive shit to me, I almost always lash back at them. Then I get into trouble with everyone else and come off looking like a villain. This was especially true during my years in hell school. If any kid had done something to me and I made even the slightest notion that I wasn't taking their shit, it would come crumbling down around me faster than an avalanche in the form of a reprimand. I never understood how it was that people like them could just feign innocence and get away with greasy ass shit. No more. I'm not letting anger cloud my mind. There's far better and stealthier ways of getting even.

Мой любимый новостной источник - это я сам. То, что пишут в газетах, передают по ящику меня нисколько не ебет. А если наступит пиздец , то я об этом узнаю не из них, а как-то, имманентно чтоли. Потом у меня очень хорошо развита интуиция и некоторые " новости" я могу предсказывать. Сплетнями я не интересуюсь, хотя есть некоторые люди, которые сообщают мне все необходимое. Так что , газет я не читаю, ящик стараюсь не смотреть. Это  немного смахивает на мою маргинальность , но меня, по большей части мало, что ебет вообще. Лучшая информация -это та, которая почерпнута из книг, музыки , хорошего кино и из искусства вообще - это делает человека во всех отношениях лучше, потому она не всем легко доступна, и что-бы получить ее надо предпринять некоторые усилия - поработать над собой прежде всего.   А любые "медиа источники" -все врут или , по крайней мере, искажают действительность. Я живу в своем маленьком мире , и проблемы глобальные меня не волнуют. Чего и всем желаю... Меня даже прогноз погоды не интересует, его я также получаю имманентно. А какого ебанутого может интересовать индекс ММВБ? такого человека мне искренне жаль. Тратить свое время на это , да еще и быть обманутым - нет это не для меня. Я даже одно время работал корреспондентом в одном печатном издательстве узкого профиля, так вот,меня больше всего всегда интересовали фуршеты после пресс конференции. Все остальное я перекатывал из пресс релизов. Правда я недолго там работал, зато есть  что вспомнить...

I'd probably say that judging someone before I get to know them would be a bad habit I should probably quit- or even judging someone I haven't seen in a long time.  That's tough because I know a few people that aren't the friendly type; one person I know likes to try to control others she encounter each day in various situations.

Drinking too many Diet Red Bulls. They make my blood pressure go up and I've been Diet Red Bull free for an entire week. I don't feel the need to go back to them really. It was a caffeine addiction like any other, and in large doses my probation officer told me they can show up as meth in the urine test, so...well...that's not a good thing. I am just feeling so much calmer and clear-headed without it, considering since I drank two a day that's four dollars a day and 120 a month, and 1400 a year. Save money and use my natural energy to work out!

hmmmm, while I do not see it as a "bad habit" I could see that people may think that me masturbating a lot could be seen as one. Yet it's never hampered me day to day, and unlike smoking, which has it's second hand smoke effect on other people, it should not be harmfully to others. I must admit that if I have not done it regularly that day, I do get a bit jumpy, but never so bad that I reached down my skirt and mindless started at it in front of people. Not sure if this is a bad habit or not, but when I speak to my friends sometimes about it they seem a bit shocked on the amount I do it, so I think in their minds it could be seen as a bad habit.

Opening my big mouth when I'm not suppose to. Last time, when my sister brought her boyfriend over, I said some things that I was not privileged to disclosed. Some of them were not even true about my sister because I haven't taken the time to verify it. It made my sister cry, of course. Since then, they have watched out for my "big mouth." I guess I need to think before I speak : /

Chewing my fingernails. /solemn nod
I do it WAY too much. I chew 'em and tear 'em down to the skin. You know those white parts? The kind you scratch people with? Yeah, those. Totally gone. I have no nails to speak of. It doesn't help that they grow rrrrreeeeeaaaaalllyyyyyyy slowly, too.

I just can't help it! They're so flakey and layery...I can't leave 'em when they're cracked and flaking. So I start and I...it's hard to stop.

Actually, I'm doing it right now. AUGH stop that!

It gets so bad that I can't focus without chewing on them. Aaaah, really, I can't focus unless something's in my mouth. That's probably it, actually.

What’s a bad habit that you really need to quit?
I doubt many people would write about the habits that they really want to get rid of. Such things are just too personal, and most modern people are too proud or afraid to admit to a weakness. Though many desperately need to stop assuming and generalizing about things, or believing that all belief systems are good, so long as they're just like their own. And there are some people who truly don't have any bad habits that they 'need to quit'.

I'm not one of those. I do have habits I don't care for, and that I'm bringing to God for help in overcoming them. The one that I think causes me the most grief at the moment is my habit of reacting to situations with unreasonable and illogical fear.

Biting my nails off DX

I sort of quit it for a few years... and by that I mean that I stopped actually biting the nails off, and let them grow out... but I managed to develop OCD (clinical OCD, thank you very much) regarding them and and I could never keep them away from my mouth. I'd rub the nails against my mouth, stick them in my mouth and gently chew on them, etc... so I guess you could say I never really stopped. But a couple of years ago, when I became homeless, I got particularly stressed out and as a result it started up again. I still haven't managed to quit again ;.;

I dunno how I did it before, I just stopped... I try doing that now and my nails end up bit off before i even notice...

And never feeling like enough; like I'll never be good enough for them.
That's definitely one of my worst habits. Struggling to impress people

Biting off my nails and hangnails....I managed to break myself of the habit of biting my nails for awhile, but started up again.

I probably wouldn't bite my nails so much if I had something to occupy my hands with whenever I was anxious or scared - like a small stuffed animal. I could pet it and never even think of having to bite my nails. Someday when I get out from under the thumb of all those people who claim to know what's best for me, I'll try that. ^_^
