I don’t like my job. Depending on the day, I either don’t like it or I hate it. Today I don’t like it because I’m trying to be optimistic.
I was bored in class and the kids were doing a very simple worksheet, so I decided to play around with the new recorder I bought and ask them some questions. Thus producing this short clip of audio.
I have a bit of paranoia such that being among large crowds makes me anxious. I have this irrational sense that people are looking at me and judging me.
I was watching Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens in a theatre here in Taiwan, and there were many instances were I laughed while the rest of the packed theatre remained silent. This isn’t the first time I’ve experienced this watching a movie here. With Pitch Perfect 2, I was laughing my a** off pretty much the whole movie whereas the theatre remained relatively silent during all bud the physical comedy scenes. I think at one point, the woman in front of me turned around and gave me a look, like: shut up, we’re watching a movie!
I definitely think too much. I always have. But I’ve been trying to tone it down, rid myself of the useless embarrassment of past events and the fear of future interactions with other humans. This self-workshopping requires constant vigilance. I fail often.
