_I'm not that into Halloween anymore. I think I've outgrown it and I see it as another excuse for the candy and costume companies to further exploit their moneymaking skills. For the price a costume costs you could easily make your own._

_I didn't hand out candy; like I said I was at school aaaallll day. Plus, I don't really like kids, and I don't dress up for the holiday anymore. I see it as just another excuse for companies to make money._ rolleyes

_Oh, I see. Awww well that's prolly a sign or something... razz I didn't do anything for Halloween. I had classes and my boyfriend had to work. He came and met me after my second class got out, though. Then we spent about 15 minutes together before I had to go home._

You're not too late at all! My birthday is the 24th of September and by my clock I've still got a little more than two hours left biggrin
Banana Bread Beer? That sounds super weird but at the same time I'd definitely try it. I don't like beer at all mainly because I hate the after-taste so I'll have to look for that. Mudslides! You're the second person to recommend them so now I've got to get one! Thank you so much for wishing me a happy birthday and giving me a killer drink list. I'll drunkenly let you know when I'm done with it (jk; that'd be a lot of money spent on liquor for one evening but I will let you know if I end up liking one of them a lot!)

I've tried to do the whole, "do all these pills really help me?" but I always go through terrible withdrawl so I haven't been meds free since I started which was when I was 15 and I'll be turning 21 next month. It's weird because you've got my brother who is two years older than me on the other spectrum who self medicates with pot and thinks pills are horrible for you and all of that stuff. Our relationship has really been strained by our different views but I think it's getting better though every now and then I feel like we're back at square one and butting heads. Also since he doesn't live at home anymore I just pretend like everything is okay when he does visit because it's like, why stir things up though pretending can cause things to mentally pile up meaning things will eventually explode sooner or later.

As far as driving goes, I remember driving with my permit and practicing and I was good but then, well honestly I was too frightened to take the driving test with a stranger. It just was way too scary of an idea. Now, it's been years since I've driven and my permit has expired. To make things worse, I've been in a few car accidents since then (one which really scared the hell out of me because we killed a deer) and even though I wasn't driving it's made me terrified of the whole thing. I find that even sitting in the passenger seat I get anxious as it seems like every time I go out, no matter who is driving, we nearly get into an accident or at least in my head we nearly do. I know that what I need to do is get my permit renewed and just take it slow and rebuild my confidence with driving much like you did with your dad but that first step is just so hard! It doesn't help that the DMV is stressful as hell.

That said, I have goals in mind but for me and my mindset it's almost like everything is all or nothing; black or white. That said, if I don't succeed 100% I've failed and the fear of that failure is really paralyzing. It's like, I either have to fix ALL of my life, and address each and every problem, because if I don't then I'm not actually making progress.

Ugh, it's... trying but I'm actually really glad I got to have this conversation with you! It's always nice to have living proof that you're not as alone as you might feel.

Good for you! That's kind of what I've been doing for the past few months, you know, working on myself and what not minus the exercise because...I'm lazy.
High school took a pretty big toll on me and for a while I was just enjoying my time off but then it sort of became a deep hole that I didn't know how to get out of. I had just planned to take a year off in between high school and college but, seeing how I didn't know how to get out of that hole, it easily became two years...
I'm still not out of that hole but I think, or rather I hope that I'm taking the necessary steps to eventually climb out and rejoin the mass population.

I've been okay. Nothing earth-shatteringly new.
How about you?

Thank you! That means a lot as I'm not used to working with very vibrant colors and what not. Almost all of my avatars have the colors toned down.

That sounds really great actually. There's something about manual work that really helps you think clearly.
My friend is doing something similar right now in Germany. He's getting bed and board at a farm in exchange for helping out around the place - seems like a pretty good deal.
