Dear Self,

Stop giving into the instinct to defend your point of view every time. You may be right, but they don't care and you're wasting time.  Shut up and listen, instead of starting an argument. Let them be wrong.

Dear Me,

Keeping up with NaNo can be hard, but you're doing great so far! Keep up the good work and don't get cocky before the month's over! Remember that once November's over, you can edit, which is glorious and wonderful. You can't edit if there's nothing there.

And when in doubt, remember the famous adage of your Writer's Craft teacher from high school...

"Less talk, more write!"

~ Me

Dear self,

As entertaining as staying up and making an icon for a thread that really needed one is, you have some things to do tomorrow. Ginger. Candied ginger. Isn't that enough of an incentive to get some gods-damned sleep??!?

Stop trying to argue with a person with psychosis about their delusions. Refer them back to their psychiatrist and let. it. go.

Dear Me,

Stop letting yourself get pushed around. It's making you take stupid risks that you normally wouldn't think of. Remember: sometimes it's not over-worrying; sometimes it's just being cautious and THAT'S OKAY.

Dear Self,

When playing World of Warcraft, you must adhere to the following rules:
  1. Set either a designated amount of play time (e.g., 2 hours) or a designated stopping time (e.g., 9:30pm) every time you play. Even if you have the whole day free to play, plan a break. Lunch, if nothing else.
  2. Set an alarm on your iPhone to go off at your chosen stopping time.
  3. When the alarm goes off, you must ACTUALLY STOP playing. This means:
    1. finish your current action (i.e., the current quest--NOT all the currently active quests, NOT the current quest-chain--or the bit of training you are doing, or checking your mail, etc.)
    2. find a safe place

Only 8 days into playing, and you are already having time management issues. Nip this in the bud, self.

Dear Me,

Congrats on waking up at a half-way decent time. Now to catch up on that crap load of school work that's been sitting around for ages. :/

Dear Me,

HOLY CRAP you are obsessed with Exalted. Take a break and actually do some school work, will ya?
Also, you really need to get a life. Drew & Em're not gonna be here during the summer and if you fall apart because two people aren't in town... that's a bad sign, hun.

Love you, but you're kinda stupid sometimes.

Dear self,


Yes, every day. Yes, proper dinner. Even the days you don't feel like it. When you don't, or when you decide pizza or toast or 2 minute noodles will do, you will regret it when you wake up at 3am and can't get back to sleep from the whatever it is your blood sugar does when you skip meals.

How do you not know this already? How come you keep waking up like its a surprise?

Dear self,

St. John's Wort is a miracle drug, yes, but not to be administered nasally. HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU THIS.

I suspect we may have been sleep-deprived when we had to write this....

Dear Self,

we keep having this discussion, and you keep forgetting it. So I've started this brand-new community (since you're mostly on DW these days) in the hopes that writing it down might help. Now I'll say it loud and clear and maybe it'll sink in one of these days:


If you can finally get that through your thick skull, we might be able to work on other things, like sleeping, and washing your face, and taking daily walks like your fibro doc has ordered you to do. *sighs* But I'll settle for those three up there for now.

Please, please, please work on it. You do realise that you suffer when you don't, right?

Lots of love and exasperation,
Your self
