What happens when a smoker quits
420. “I know I can trust you, I’m just afraid I’ll keep telling you my problems and you’ll get annoyed and leave.” - Anonymous
There needs to be a code word or something that means “my brain is fighting me every step of the way today and I feel like I’m going to vibrate out of my skin, so I need you to forgive everything and go slowly and speak softly and lower your expectations.” And then we could all just be like, “I know I said we could go to a movie tonight but… tangerines.” And the other person would nod and squeeze your elbow or rub your head and you wouldn’t feel like a failure.
People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
I’ve been thinking about the best way to divide my time. Or otherwise, what is worth my time?
I feel like the easiest way is between things I want to do and things I need to do. Things that aren’t in either category simply shouldn’t be done. Trouble is, almost everything fits in one of those two, and it makes priorities easy but gives me nothing that I want to do; something always “needs” doing.
I’m just not built for having fun. I’m having difficulty pinning down even things I want to do. I just hate everything and find little joy in much. Being at work is nice and enjoyable, I think purely for the characteristic it has of being impersonal. I don’t get to think about much other than what I need to be doing.
But when I get home I begin to get annoyed at the tiniest things. I don’t like anything I’m doing and find difficulty thinking of things I should be doing.
This is becoming circular so I’ll finish. Gotta find something to do until I pick Angel up, since I came home in order to avoid being boring and because I didn’t enjoy my time out.
Goodnight to any who read this (so no-one, right? ^.^), I hope your heads are more ordered than the mess I call my own.
I’d like to be more vocal, more confident, more able to voice my concerns and feelings. Writing on here has always been interesting, particularly with the option to interact with new people.
But I feel like it’s difficult, like I don’t want to misstep for anything can come back in the future to be inconvenient.

In a new international ranking, the United Kingdom ranks first, while the U.S. performs poorly across almost all health metrics.
The origin of the phrase “You get what you pay for” is sometimes attributed to the fashion mogul Aldo Gucci, who said, “The bitterness of low quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded.” But when it comes to healthcare, Americans get neither quality nor affordability.
The United States healthcare system is the most expensive in the world, but when it comes to health outcomes, it performs worse than 11 other similar industrialized nations, according to a new report released today by the Commonwealth Fund.
The nonprofit examined the health systems of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, and it found that the U.S. was last or near-last in measures of health access, efficiency, and equity.

I’m surprised to see Canada right after them, to be honest. Nice to see Sweden up there though :D
