Quarterlife Crisis

I'm having one!

As I mentioned in my last post, I've recently had the strongest desire to just change everything.  Well, mostly everything.  I'm still liking Hime-kei so far, lol.

Thursday after work, I had the sudden urge to go to Barnes and Noble.   I have no idea what made me want to go, just that I was in the area while running an errand, and could really have used a book, I guess.  So I headed on over.

My usually hang-outs are in the How To Draw section and the Personal Health sections, where I usually check out the books they have about skin care and makeup.   I read a very interesting book about makeup that doesn't just talk about how to apply the makeup but some tips on how to work on your own self-esteem.  Much of it, I already knew, but it was good to have it reiterated as lately I've been slacking on positive thinking.   It was pretty nice, though I didn't feel the need to buy it.  Maybe some other time, as it did have a very interesting section on wearing makeup depending on the mood you want to portray, and I wonder if it can help me even in my own style.

Anyway, as I was making my way to the art section, I passed the Self Help section.  I'm usually always trying to solve problems myself, since I don't really feel like my friends can be of help with the things I'm dealing with, and I'm never sure how to express what I mean to my mom so I don't feel like she understands where I am.   It's really difficult, because you only know what you know.  I can come to all sorts of conclusions, but in the end, I'm only relying on my own opinions as to why things happen the way they do, and even if what I'm thinking is solid, there's so many other opinions and ideas that can change the situation completely.  So I figured, it might be nice to see if there's a book about the issues I'm dealing with that might give me a new insight.  What caught my eye was a book called The Go-Girl Guide, which deals with the issues that come up once you're in your 20s.  It's over a decade old (and you can tell, because they mention stuff like "Ally McBeal", lol), but the information is still quite helpful.  Did you know that we usually have one more growth spurt in our mid-twenties?  It's probably why my skin has been breaking out more than ever lately, like I'm going through puberty again (or it could just be stress).
