I got my brain MRI done without too much complications. I'm glad I got it done......I been worrying about it for weeks.

I finally gathered the courage to ask my friend who is a female to go to a movie whenever she wanted too.
And she's excited about it as much as I am !

I don't even think I made eye contact with the waitress.....ugh.
It's a start....

I'll start: I've had to make this phone call for work, and I've put it off for days (phone anxiety) and I finally tried it today, the call went to voicemail but I will try again later.

What about you guys?
I finally got a new therapist and I saw her today. I was nervous but I actually made myself speak in therapy and I think it went well.

Well, today my good friend whom I haven't heard from in a while called me today. I normally hate when my friends call me because 1) it's inconvenient 2) I HATE really long phone calls and 3) you can't think about a response. It was really awkward on the phone because ALL he would talk about is drugs. I **** you not he would not change the subject. So I have to pretend to be interested for almost an entire HOUR before I grow the balls to say gotta go. Normally saying gotta go isn't an issue, but this guy thinks that whenever I can't talk or when I say I need to go he thinks I just don't want to talk to him. Anyway it was just painfully awkward and he wants me to smoke with him over the weekend.

I went and got my hair cut and visited two different stores afterwards to buy Mario Kart 8 for my little cousins.

Edit: Lol my bro already got Mario Kart 8. So much for going out.

Went to group therapy, though it really wasn't a fear and nothing got accomplished.

Did the move-out inspection at my old apartment and made small talk with people in the leasing office for 20 minutes

So it goes.

Wtg...phones still scare the hell out of me lol. I've been trying to get over it all my life, and it's as bad now as it was when I was a kid *shrug*


My heart just sank when I got to work today. I worked one on one, with one of the more intimidating members of our team. Usually we work in groups of anywhere from ten to fifty people. Today, yep, it was me and her. Thanks boss man.


I decided to try to stay positive, just get it done, and it went really well. She's actually pretty nice, she's pretty OK lol.

The fear of having to get up early D:

I got up early for work, only to get there and find out I didn't have work today...their mistake, not mine.

Oh well got the whole day ahead of me!
