What is the annoying splinter in your life that you need to remove?
How would your life be different if you removed that distraction?
I honestly can’t think of anything majorly annoying going on in my life these days. I should probably count that as a blessing. When I think of things I would be better for not having in my life, “400 years of institutionalized racism” and “the dehumanization of black bodies” come to mind, but those things can’t really be classified as “annoying splinters.”
My roommates have sort of been on my nerves lately. I am beginning to imagine a post-July 2015 future in which I no longer live in this house, which would change my life considerably. I’d have to talk with boo about his feelings on cohabitation, which is not a subject we’ve broached, and I’d have to go through the housing search and the moving process and maybe the interviewing with potential new roommates process again. I’d have to get used to a new living situation and perhaps a new neighborhood and a new commute. I’d have to control my baking sprees. But I also would theoretically not have people eat my food or yell at me for using the wrong knives or have cat hair on literally every piece of fabric I own. I would theoretically not feel like so much of an outsider in my own home. And theoretically balancing where we spend our time together would be less of an issue with boo. And maybe I could buy nicer furniture or finally get pretty dishware and accent pillows…#decoratordreams
