Bad Dreams Lead to Introspection, Finds Area Man

I am:

without a car

overweight

depressed

anxious

having bad dreams

not performing

learning to play "Jump in the Fire"

Spending too much time in my head

unproductive

making crappy artwork

unappreciative

frustrated

feeling so lonesome surrounded by friends*

(but jokes aside, I'm pretty lonely)

self-medicating

foolishly coiffed

getting insufficient sleep

uncertain

full of regret

embarrassed that I'm writing this in a public forum, but aware that I need to air it to someone, and that it might as well be anyone and everyone

overly nostalgic

lackluster

disappointing

disappointed

unsatisfied

*this is a NOFX lyric, proving that despite other things, I have not lost my sense of humor.

But you are also:

intelligent

talented

well-liked

handsome

a good writer
generous

friendly

charming

able to grow unique facial hair

self-aware

employed

and more interesting than most people. Easy for me to say, but don't be so hard on yourself. You have a lot to offer the world, and probably a lot of things you could be happy about, if you so choose. Abe Lincoln said "most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be.

Soapbox done.

Thank you. I really appreciate that. That Abe was full of good advice, though I wouldn't trust his opinion on the theater.
