Grammar people, grammar!

Today I am fishing through various e-mails from potential dates. I have not found one person, not one who can put a proper sentence together or one that even knows where a period should go. I mean, I'm no English scholar and by all means I know I make mistakes but I at least don't sound like a bumbling idiot when I type or write...or at least I seem to think so. (I actually used to grade my friend's term papers for them for a fee of $25 a piece in high school if that tells you anything about my grammar skills.)

With that being said...I'm having a hard time getting past a small thing like grammar with a few of these guys. One of them actually sent a message that read: 'oh thats kool great that you can do that do you know when we can c each other and hang out cuz u really hott' Um, seriously?? I don't want to be painfully picky but at the same time...learn to write a freaking sentence before you start to ask a lady out! Jiminy Christmas!!

Let's make movie magic!

My wonderfully amazing best friend decided that it was his new mission in life to set me up with the perfect guy. He currently lives in a different state so he couldn't be here to personally interview these potential suitors. So what did he do? He set up a personal add for me locally and started to interview these gentleman through e-mail. Sounds like a Julia Roberts movie, doesn't it?

Well, the dating montage has now begun and I am dating and eliminating guys right and left. The first one...Jim...was so painfully boring that I couldn't even carry a decent conversation with him. The second one...Todd...was so domineering and pragmatic so he was of course eliminated as well. I'm too much of a dreamer and a free spirit for all that nonsense. Thus my hunt continues. I'm very lucky to have such an awesome best friend. lol

Tight grip on reality

Though I haven't blogged in a hot minute, nothing has changed. I'm still a single 25 year old living at home with dad, barely making an income and still don't have much of a social life. You might wonder why I don't just stop complaining and do something about it? Well, it's a little more difficult than all of least in my mind. I work for my father. Big shocker, I'm sure. But I don't make much because I'm the daughter and I live at home so to my father he doesn't see a reason why I need to make all that much money like I used to because I don't have rent or utilities to pay for anymore. And if I leave and go somewhere else I would be slapping my father in the face. I've been working in the legal field for just about 6 years now so the only job I would have enough experience for would be in the legal field which would mean that I would go work for a rival attorney....which is no bueno in my father's eyes.

And as far as fixing the single and no real social life's easy I know because I've done it before and it was great. But I just feel like a literal stick in the mud who can't seem to get things going. I just don't want to make the effort...I just want it to fall into my lap. Is that too much to ask for?? Apparently it is.

Confessions of a crazy person

I have always been told throughout life that I am way too sensitive or that I am an old soul. I saw that I was way different from my friends but never felt the need to change it. After years of feeling like the odd ball of emotions, the fog has cleared and there is now an answer to the chaos. I am, by the scientific term, a Hypersensitive Person...or an HSP as the cool kids say lol.

As an HSP I am made uncomfortable by loud noises, deeply moved by music, startle very easily, life changes shake me up and take a while to adjust, moving or rearranging of furniture takes me a while to adjust to, other people's mood affect mine....and the laundry list goes on and on. Though admitting all of these things makes me sound like somewhat of a freak or an emotional train wreck but in all actuality I have learned to manage mostly all of it. Even though many people don't understand and think that I'm full of bologna...but only 15% of people actually have this personality disorder of sorts.

Just to give you a visual: our office moved to a new location over the weekend. I have been in the same office for almost 6 years now. So obviously I had a few hitches when it came to coping and processing everything...but I made a quick recovery. A week later and I actually like the new place and my new office. My office is considerably smaller than my old office but I do have a window so it makes it all better. :)

It's finally Friday. It feels as though the week has dragged on yet it's flown by. How is it fair that time can fly by yet go as slow as cold molasses? Only time will tell, right?
