(That's my secret Captain)

Posted by The Dandy Automaton , Oct 09 2012 · 125 views

(Okay, I'll admit something. I have an anger problem. Obviously it doesn't come across online because I have better control, but in person it seriously troubles me. So why is it that on the one day that I try to make myself calm and placid that suddenly everything goes out of its way to frustrate the living Karzahni out of me? I mean, I deliberately put the most calming music I have on repeat, go out of my way to be uncharacteristically nice to people and then all of a sudden today's the day when I get my stuff hidden, surprise essays, faulty technology, finding out I'm getting mocked and then that painfully old cliché walking past a puddle just as some careless driver decides he wants to teach his car to swim. I'll admit I managed to keep calmer than I have been which I guess is something to be pleased with but then that means I'm just bottling it up. So I'm probably going to explode at some poor, undeserving sod. Pre-emptive sorry to whoever that's gonna be.)

(Anyway, sorry about that. It's a selfish rant but one that helps me get things off my chest. As Tim Minchin gleefully declared, some people have it worse than I. On the plus side, my parents have finally switched to a new Virgin package which means that I now have fast, unlimited broadband. So at least there's that.)

Just relax man, you're going to have problems and you're always going to be frustrated over something. Just pick your battles and don't take everything in a negative way.

If I'm angry, I take a walk, talk to a friend, take a nap or read a book. Or I may even get work done. School, yard work, volunteer work, anything to keep me busy. Also a good prayer can't hurt anyone either.

(Yeah, I guess that's true, though I'm not particularly the praying type. The only trouble is that when with friends I'm known for being aggressively sarcastic which unfortunately isn't something that I can deal with by taking a walk. It's often instinctive, which was why I tried to calming music on repeat. It was sort of useful but could have been better. But thanks for the advice, it is appreciated.)

You know, calming music never actually calms me, it just kinda bottles it up and stores it away. Aggressive, or at least fast-paced and heavy music does calm me though. A catharsis effect of sorts. Rage Against The Machine does wonders.

Can't really give advice as I seem to be able to not get angry at most things, or forget about it after the standard uttering of some profanities under my breath, but when that doesn't do it, I do like to turn that anger into something useful and work out a bit or go for a run. Just something physical.

Okay, surprise essays, faulty technology, and puddle splashing, I understand. But being mocked and having stuff hidden, that is -not- okay. Its just malicious and actually really immature of people. And actually, to calm down, I find that venting really does help. And blogs are definitely convenient for that =)

Also, I find that braiding my hair calms me down. But umm, I don't think you guys can do that, for the most part. Soooo yeah XP

I would not say that ranting like this is "selfish", not anymore then having a blog to rant about personal things in the first place. Not to go into the darker side of human interests, but hearing other people's problems can be interesting, assuming it is not too overdone.

Anyway, I am very aware that saying "these things happen", while sometimes true, does not help at all and was probably something you already knew. When it comes to your friends though, I probably won't give out any advice or something as I do not know your situation to the letter, but do they only do this to you? Or to each other as well?

I do have a stress relieving method that is, simply put, controversial, so I probably wont say that unless it is a PM.

That's quite surprising as it so often does the opposite to me. I find it usually energises me which never leads to great results. I guess music has different effects on different people, which is quite interesting.

Well, who knows? My hair's sorta long so in a couple of months it should be at an appropriate length to start braiding. Sure, I might get some weird looks but it could work. :P
