"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Q. Is it really possible to heal NPD?

My class schedule in UVa working out pretty well. I have Fridays off, in addition to the weekend, and none of my classes Monday-Thursday start before noon. Shweeeeet huh? If it stays like this I'll also be taking abnormal psych.:devil: Of course I think I should be the TA, not a student in the class, but I doubt that's gonna happen.

It was a busy, busy weekend. One that was kind of cool because I had a chance to spend some leisure time at night with the people I've been working with for the last several months. It was really one of the few times we've had in a long time to just have some fun. :cookiemonster: I actually found myself feeling relatively comfortable hanging with these people and not worrying about being rejected. Yes, I even engaged in small talk and lived to tell about it. :shocked:

I just gave notice to my employer.

I've never really fit in this place and I decided it was time to move on despite not really having a grand plan for what comes next. At least its just me being thrown into the chaos rather than an entire family, so that's something. Chances are I couldn't do this if there was anyone but me. I have some degree of faith things will work out, but we shall see, I guess.

I hope this meets the criteria for positive.

I'm officially registered for classes. Let the insanity begin :crazy: How many days until Chistmas? :crazysanta:

To mourn the passing of summer my friend and I are going rafting this weekend on a remote river in Missouri that's so far out of the way I don't think most of the locals know its there. We are bringing some BBQ'd ribs, fishing poles and beer. Its my first vacation in two years and I can't wait.

Wiggle wiggle. Wiggle woo. Wiggle wiggle. Wiggle woo.

Alright that's out of my system. My college friend is back and we just got together tonight. My course registration is also close to being complete. I hope college itself turns out to be a positive experience.

Relax, and enjoy. The adult in me reminds you that you'll get out of this experience what you put into it. I have fond memories of college, for the most part despite a tendency to party much, much more than I should have right before finals. Ouch, that was painful.

I'm happy to report that I had a chat with CoolBlonde and Phil last night and they both seem to be doing fine although my presence may have started an interesting discussion afterward. :npdhumor: If you'd like me to intrude on your personal affairs simply leave your phone number and least convenient time for me to call. My fee is reasonable compared to Samvak as I only charge $450/ hour. :ahappyN:

My positive is that I managed to drag my lazy ass out of bed and go t to work on time despite not going to bed until well after 1 AM. I should be smart enough not to abuse my body this way but it seems I have a ways to go on that score. Oh well, relax and enjoy the abuse, I guess.

Ahh, college. Speaking of partying too much. I remember specifically recieving a letter advising me that perhaps I needed to take a semester off and rejoin in the winter session.............

Silly things we do!!

Anywho, on to my positive. Well, after my not so pleasant phone conversation with my ex yesterday (It ended with and explitive from him) I am maintaining a positive attitude. I am not going to play his emotional blackmail games anymore! There is absolutely no way I would have been able to do this even six months ago. I would have hung up the phone, got in my car, drove over there and begged and pleaded with him to talk to me. HAH! Never again. I refuse to play the game. I almost can't believe it myself.

Tony, sleep is overrated. You can sleep when you are dead.

Later,

Mel

I was buying sh-t for school at the bookstore and the freakin fire alarm went off. I guess I'm such hot property that i cannot keep it a secret. It was a false alarm. Most have been someone wanting to see my rear end in action. :shakin:

I'm looking forward to the raft trip. I definitely need a break. The good news is I had dinner with my parents last night without a signal fight breaking out. That's got to be a record for us.

I was so busy being a smart ass that I neglected to mention maybe the biggest positive I've seen in a while.

Someone I have reasonable relations with pointed out a comment Vaknin made on a recent thread at the Suite. He said that some of the website owners of other NPD related pages didn't want him linking directly to their pages through his forums. Maybe, just maybe, the tide is beginning to turn just a little?

None to soon is all I can say.

Taran I saw that thread. Poor sammy boy...

Anyway, first things first, I gotta see these new emoticons in action.

:batangel:

[ Too Many Emoticons In Post; Maximum 20 ]



:bunny: :crazysanta:

:flush: :frankenstien: :frosty:

:ghost: :greenalien: :grim: :grinpresent:

:happybdaycake: :partyfrog: :patty: :pumpkin1:

:puppylove: :shakin:

Feel the emoticon-ness... I just watched Gattaca and really got into it emotionally, so I'm happy right now. 8 days until move-in starts. I'm off to practice soul calibur 2....
