I’m perpetually mind-blocked, so I searched for things to write about online and I came across the 30 Day Writing Challenge and the 30 Day Song Challenge. I decided to combine them and give them a go, with some disregard to their rules. So for the next 30 days I’ll torture you with my stupid answer to these interesting writing prompts.
Writing Challenge – Day 3: Something with which you struggle.
People. That’s my biggest struggle.
After many years of herculean effort, I’ve got to a point where I can interact with human beings without quietly begging for my body to expontaneously combust. I was terribly shy as a kid. I hated people, but I particularly hated kids. Talking in front of my classmates in school was torture. I couldn’t stand birthday parties, especially those were playing games were mandatory and failing to achieve the goal of the game meant being dared –actually, being forced- to do something embarrassing like drawing the numbers from 1 to 10 in the air with you ass.
Fortunately I got over by eighth grade. I still have social skills that can only be described as deficient, but at least they’re not nonexistent. I can handle a small group of people pretty well, but put me in a club and I’ll either go catatonic or I’ll have a panic attack. It’s pretty gross when it happens.
Song Challenge – Day 3: A song that makes you happy.
Well, let’s talk about levels of happiness, because as usual, I can’t just pick one. I also can’t explain why these songs make me happy. But let it be known that I am the type of person that needs music at all moments of the day. So:
Cures for a crap day
The songs that make me smile like an idiot:
The song that makes me feel the way I should feel at a club if I weren’t a total psycho:
The songs that get me out of a girly weird funk:
Reminders of good times
