For me it fluctuates widely based on my mood. I can go from having a deeper, authoritarian sounding voice to having a soft and more child-like voice. Really, it would be convenient if I had better control over it.

On a related note, I often hear that my face looks 5-10 years younger then my age.

When I think about it though, I have gotten some valuable help from irrational sources. Not that I think it is ever helpful to believe false or irrational things. But a more than a few times a metaphor or a meaningful story has made a huge difference in how I see things, for the better. On the other...

Trying to keep ones ego out of it, telling your mind to shut it and just listen, as well as doing research on newly presented material are some things I've done. That's just with thinking in terms of discussing topics, there can be rigidity in things like mannerisms too...I'm not sure how well I do...

This post is becoming like Herzog's letters or a piece of inner monologue from a Palahniuk novel. Report, from the front lines, 8:50 am, April 17, 2019. This morning I ran the shower fan at 8:00 am while taking a shower. In my mind I suspected that the guy upstairs really didn't want me to do that a...

It occurs to me I am so bothered by the situation because when I think they are angry or disapproving towards me my instinct is to try to suppress all of my human needs and desires to comply with what they want. But then another part of me has human needs, and this part feels outraged at being compl...

Freer mind would let me: get things done; enjoy life; make friends. I would be imperfect and fallible. I am these things anyways, but then I would accept it.
