I have an issue. I hate when people tell me what to do. It's a fault...I realize this. None the less, that's me. It's like someone says "do this" and deep inside I just want to do "that". "Jennifer, it's illegal to steal street signs"...done, one stolen street sign. I've pretty much been this way my whole life. Now, sometimes it's to my benefit...when people tell me I can't, I instinctively feel like "YES I can....watch me." However, sometimes it's probably my biggest downfall. Don't eat fried food...french fries are my friend. Too much coffee in one day is bad for you...uh, OK...as I'm drinking my third coffee of the day. You shouldn't break the speed limit...I've always felt that 5-7 mph over the speed limit is totally acceptable. I see a No U Turn sign and it's all that I can do to just drive past without flippin' a U-e. You know those signs on emergency doors: "Do not open door, alarm will sound"...I so want to push those doors. When I was younger, and my mom would put words on the bad list...like I couldn't say shut up, crap, dang, butt, fart...the list goes on and on...those words immediately crept into my vocabulary and I would just sneak them in whenever possible. What can I say, I was a brat, plus I always liked to get the "Jennifer Katherine!" statement. I hate it when people make general statements like, oh I don't know....I'll just pick some random statement...like "Everyone should turn off their auto playlists on their blogger pages." (which was an exact post on Twitter the other day) Well, I just get this defiance that rages inside me and wants to turn up my playlist as loud as I can.
Good thing my therapist is on speed dial.
Happy Friday! ☺
