Getting Oral surgery done today
Great
So I won’t be on till later tonight, maybe not at all.
Enjoy your day everyone
Haven't done a TIMH for a long time. Meant to do some, didn't motivate myself enough. But things happening recently causing me to want to vent a little and share my take on a situation in addition to asking for some advice. I've gotten advice from a couple people, and I appreciate it. 

Given the fact that I WRITE these TIMH journals, it's evident that I have a very philosophical, analytical, and maybe psychologist-like mind. It can be a very great thing. I love typing, I love sharing my thoughts, I love helping friends of mine and give advice, and listen to what they are going through (well, I don't like THAT they are going through things but, I like being HERE for them). I write a lot, I am descriptive, I'd rather say too much then too little. 

Without going too much into specifics, I feel as if this is becoming a huge problem despite having a "big mind" being a relatively good thing. I've made a lot of great new friends that I love hanging out with on Steam, TF2 to be specific, but also on Minecraft and recently Terraria. In addition, the TF2 community that I have made a lot of these friends on, I am active in, and I enforce rules and report players breaking major ones (for the most part) to show my activeness and willing-ness to contribute to the community on a higher level to help out more efficiently, and I have fun on the server I play in, and I've been known to be someone people can count on to come and record a rule breaker when an admin isn't on to handle the situation. I try to report whoever I can simply because I don't want to be bias, I can't be at all if I were an admin or something. So my friends and companions sometimes message me saying that someone is doing something, and I normally hop on to see whats going on.

After having some really good times just casually playing with a couple people from the server, and moving to a place on discord with people from the server, we've been playing Terraria and having fun.
But my apologetic nature (out of politeness), I've noticed is becoming annoying, and I fully see what I am doing wrong in that regards. That being said, so much of what I do recently is being criticized and I feel controlled and nitpicked. For me, it's hard to tell what is and isn't joking. In terms of me loving to type my thoughts out, this is another thing that has clearly annoyed a couple people, one of which I don't want to lose as a friend given the fun times we have had. My few sentence msgs annoy people as they, simply put, don't want to read it all. Another thing I can see I need to work on, I need to summarize things more for other peoples convenience, and maybe to even not come off as pretentious. 

Like I said above, it's not that I can't "get loose" and like the title of this TIMH says, "dumb down" and just ignore the little jabs at myself and appreciate the moment when I might cause laughter or something epic happening. In the instance of Terraria, being I just bought the game and how much there is to find and make, I felt as If I was dead weight compared to the few people in the group who knew a lot about the game, and given how what they had equipped was better then what I had. This was another case of me wanting to contribute more, in order to feel less like some baggage and truly "part of the team". In addition with certain keys on the keyboard being used differently then Minecraft, and me getting the two mixed up (like pressing shift which deletes items in terraria but puts them ON you in Minecraft), I ended up apologizing a lot when someone gave me an item and I accidentally delete it.

Things like this experience have led me to believe that I have to dumb down in order to not annoy others, to not even create anything that someone would take the piss out of, and to not cause anything that someone could possibly insult/jab at. On the flip side, I can just try harder and grow thicker skin then I thought I already had, and "take the hits", and ignore what is being said to me, only replying with what matters and what isn't something that might be causing me stress. 




Meanwhile, this entire journal contradicts the name, Dumb Down, because well, I just wrote a whole analytical descriptive shpiel about what transpired and why I feel this way. 
You can see the confusion clearly now I bet.

Nonetheless- thank you for reading this. Any advice would be appreciated. 

I thank you for your time,
-Justin

Happy birthday my love, :iconsummersketch-mlp: I hope you've had a great year, I hope it's been one you can remember and one with a lot of sweetness and love. Expect even more love from me and everyone in the year to come. You deserve it. 

And I still feel bad that I haven't made anything. Idc what anyone says I feel awful about it. 

Anyways, everyone wish her a happy birthday. She deserves it, honestly. :love: 
I just drove to the grocery store and back all on my own. What an amazing accomplishment and I momentous occasion for me at least. I will say my knees are weak and my arms are heavy because I’m caring these groceries, including spaghetti 😗

Spooky Candle (Photo Edit)
Have a random photo edit I did many months ago, lol.
I actually fell in love with what I did here. I used a blue swirl background, made it black and white, softened it, touched it up, and made something really cool. 

I would LOVE to hear someones thoughts on this one. <3

Gotta schedule stuff again and buy myself another core membership 
I started singing while making lunch and I don’t know why but this is just what came to mind:



When life gives you questions, you asked for solutions.
When you had expectations, you drew your conclusions.
You gave yourself up, into the unknown.
You wanderer and pondered, your mind having grown.
Statements were made, you thought you knew.
But down on your knees, without a clue.
Then swept off your feet, by a gentle soul.
As you lay there all broken, a fire with no coal.
The soul, so innocent, who meant you no harm.
As you gazed at their light, their purpose, their charm.
Having traveled this distance, on the same path, same walk.
The soul made no sounds, yet seemed ready to talk.
Without a single breath, the fire understood what was cited.
Having asked so many questions before, he knew he was guided.
But now, all broken, his only chance to progress.
Would mean to take action, to try without regress.
A fire, burning brightly, with no questions, anymore.
For he is the solution, the center of the core.
Button Mash Orb Edited (Torben COM29 8/8)
Not the best edit, but it works. It looks sunny and fits Button Mash personality-wise.
