Skyrim 365 Year 2 - Day 314 - 11/09/16

Jarl Balgruuf the Greater: Enough! I will not stand idly by while a dragon burns my hold and slaughters my people! … Summon the dark brotherhood.

I just don’t understand.

I don’t understand how someone can just watch as their life goes to shit.

Especially when they are fully aware of what they’re doing and voice that they don’t want to live this way.

When they voice that they recognize that they use people and that their actions are almost always selfish and that they do not take into consideration other people’s feelings when making decisions but they do not even make an effort to change their behavior.

When the only time they can drop their ego low enough to apologize is when they’re drunk and their sentences are bordering on incoherent. The only time they admit that they’re a liar and a cheater and a lousy friend is when they won’t remember it the next morning.

How many people have to stop believing in them until they realize that they can’t just lie to everyone and say they’re a good person and expect them to believe them?

I’ve spent too many years running around in this circle waiting for them to put down the bottle and truly apologize for their actions.

An INTJ’s life - What I do on the days I do nothing

I’ve always been curious to know what people do when they have no official schedule to attend, I think it really gives the idea of what kind of people they are. So here’s the list of what I usually do on those “lazy” (more or less) days on which I don’t even want to meet with my friends. 

  • Sleeping. That’s right. On busy days I keep a rigid sleeping schedule (I try to never lack sleep because that makes me work less efficiently) so whenever I have a free day I make sure I take an our for myself to sleep a bit or just lay on the bed, if I prefer. But I don’t oversleep, not even on vacation, because I hate the headache and feeling drowsy. 
  • Excercising. I’ve decided that I want to be a more active person so recently I’ve been exercising every day. 
  • Getting new ideas, which for me it means reading articles and magazines. I’m into fashion, so I might read articles on Elle (sometimes they make me discover new inspiring people) and look at the clothes. Super relaxing. I’d like to start reading some scientific magazine too, so if you have any suggestion let me know.
  • Drawing. I love art, so that’s what I do when I’m free. If I really want to relax, I’ll copy from a reference or from reality (which, of the two, is actually what I like to do most).
  • Answering asks on Tumblr or writing long posts. While I take notes of the ideas for the short posts as soon as they come during the day, I need more time to answer asks, so I wait until I have free time. That’s why it always takes long, sorry! But I really like writing so it’s a pleasure for me - that’s why it is a perfect activity for a low key day. 
  • Reading, but not as much as you might think. I like reading, and I’ve have periods of my life when that was the main thing I did but as I grew up I started liking many more things and my time shrank. I generally read novels when I’m bored of real life, articles on the internet about my current obsession almost every day (but for a longer time when I have nothing to do). 
  • Catching up on TV shows. Yes, I’m human too.
  • Watching my favorite movies again or re-reading my favorite books, among of which there’s “The Great Gatsby” and “The Odyssey”. I read somewhere that watching our favorite movies over and over again, because of of the story’s predictability, relaxes us and makes us feel safe for a while in a world unpredictable and ever-changing. That’s true.

Just to be clear: that’s 40 years later, and Don is still telling this story. Forty. Years.

Needless to say, he had the last laugh.
