On edge

Yesterday I had one of those occasional days full of anxiety/loneliness, so I'm glad Blogger wasn't working all day or else I probably would have posted something embarassing. I'm feeling much better today. As Doughty says, the only way to beat it is to bat it down. I leave you with quotes from two fine works of fiction.

"Only people of a certain disposition are frightened of being alone for the rest of their lives at the age of 26, and we were of that disposition." - Rob Gordon, High Fidelity (the film)

"It is a defect of God's humour that he directs our hearts everywhere but to those who have a right to them." - Lady Croom, Arcadia

Those are great quotes. I know this because they make my heart hurt.

I think "Emo Stone" rolls off the tongue better.

Good thing I got my hair cut.

I've been moody this week too.

I was on the verge of tears all yesterday afternoon because my damn acting class was postponed yet again.

So I think it's just the weather.

Or hormones.
