    No Control

    What feelings or impulses do you find that are hard to control?


    I am having a very hard time not being grumpy if I don't ride. I get mean.

    And ice cream. I have to have my ice cream.

    I'm kinda the same way, but instead of getting grumpy if I don't ride, I just get really distracted. I can't concentrate on school work unless I get some physical excersice every day. There are other impulses I can't control, but none I want you people to know about

    Thanks, I work like hell to do it!

    Seriously, I tend to care too much for the happiness of the people around me. It's often difficult to not give a crap.

    Alright, here's one. Whenever I'm in a crowd of people, I prefer to stand, rather than sit. Kind of like wanting a bird's eye view of the situation. I'm the first to give up my seat in a crowded room, bus, or train.

    I'm workin on the grumpy when i don't ride thing. My goal for the year is to not sweat it when i can't ride. I have ridden nearly every day for nearly 3 years. I am addicted to it, i must admit and i feel a lot different when i don't ride.

    I usually ride for close to 2 hrs each morning before work, and without it I do get irritable. But I know that this is wrong. So now when I don't get to ride because of weather or conflict, I just take it in stride, or at least i try.

    Stressing over not riding, really negates some of the benefits of riding when i can. BTW, I think "no control" is BS most of the time. We usually have control if we try hard enough, it is just that often we don't want to try that hard. Sometimes I would rather throw a baby fit, because it is easier.

    I can't control worrying about work while I'm in jury duty until the end of the month. I'm trying, I tell ya, I'm trying. And that's no BS. I really don't like having to put stress on my team. I know that it is a hardship on them if I leave them short handed. I worry because I care about work and I care about the employees. I know that there's nothing I can do about jury duty. That's why I say I have no control over worrying. It happens.

    Oh. Spring break. Got it. My bad. I just didn't think about "Spring Break" because to me you're such an angel.

    I know I shouldn't discuss various people in such a manner that they end up with nicknames and acronyms for their nicknames. But I just can't help it. TSG, TSGS, PRG, PRF, EPG, PGS, the acronyms just keep coming.

    Boy have I been busy thinking about girls recently. I guess I can't help that, either. Bad jschen...

    There's plenty you can do about it, the trick is in knowing how to get yourself excused/dismissed as a juror.

    Nothing personal, but would you want your fate decided by 12 people too naive to get out of serving jury duty? I understand there are some people who relish in serving, but were that the case you wouldn't feel stressed, it was a concious decission to allow yourself to get chosen.
