red_reaper: (ransom note)
Have you ever had tried to tell a brother or sister something they do that annoys you, only to have them say you just need to lighten up? Does it not make you want to shake them until they look like a bobble-head? My sister has this thing where she makes little comments that criticize something about me. Just an offhand kind of "you should really wear make-up" or "you'd almost look cute if you did something with your hair." Or she makes a more direct, biting comment, like "your room is a disaster zone", and then laughs and says she was joking. Like this is her get out of jail free card.

So I called her on it when she said something this afternoon. And she tells me that I just need to stop being so dumb and get over it. She claims she was making a joke and I take things too seriously. Maybe I am a little serious, but I know a joke and I know critique and I am friggin' tired of being told I need to be how she sees the world! I am fine the way I am. I am happy the way I am. If I want to change something I will but lay the hell off until I decide I want to make a change! Or I will snap and scream and there will be a no holds barred argument about how I feel.

In other news, I got contacts yesterday and they are also driving me a little crazy. I always hate adapting to a new prescription and this one makes it really hard for me to focus in on what I am looking at. Plus they get a little blurry from time to time when I try to concentrate on anything up close. And I'm still having a hard time putting them in and taking them out. But I'll get there I suppose. And then I won't have that dizzying disorientation that comes from one eye being clear and one eye being fuzzy.

Take Care
