“Isn’t it true (I thought), that one is almost never present, or rather never fully present, and that’s because we have only a halfhearted, chaotic and slipshod, disgraceful and vile relationship with our surroundings.”
― Witold Gombrowicz, Cosmos
I wish there was a codeword for “you sprung that plan on me too last-minute and I didn’t have enough time to mentally prepare myself” because I feel kinda bad when someone spontaneously invites me to do something and I’m just like no no no no I need wARNING I have to have enough time to build up my social energy
I really wish people understood this.
i don’t blame people for not knowing this but i wish there was an easier way to explain it without sounding like a total shut-in anti-spontaneity killjoy. i once was sorta seeing someone who never respected this about me and it became extremely exhausting having to say no to everything over and over, until he wore me down after constant text messages, because he was the exact opposite in that planning ahead wasn’t for him.

sometimes i consider ~thirst following~ people but they usually have shitty blogs. so i’m not going to follow them for some hot selfies esp bc this isn’t a reciprocal relationship. i’m not going to endure your shit blogging just bc you’re hot. yeah i put you in your place. you don’t know i exist but i won this round.
