Modern Conflict: “Daddy’s little psycho and Mommy’s little soldier.”

In case you were interested, my own private drama involves a lot of stretching (and fidgeting, twitching, rubbing my face, and playing with locks of my hair). Speaking of private drama…

My own private drama

I’m an adult and then some, but I noticed my parents still view me as a child, so when we talk, I feel like I’m back at home. Some things never die. My dad thinks I’m silly (it’s called liberal nowadays in my dad’s head lol) and my mom believes I’m fighting for the greater good.

Love them both because they are both right. 😉

And here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson

You know, I’ve never seen The Graduate, but I heard a remake of “Mrs. Robinson” on my way to work today, and it’s been in my head ever since. I’m not sure what the original songwriters meant when writing the lyrics, but it’s always been a song that made me think of dual personalities, but not in a mentally ill kind of way, if that makes sense. I mean…have you ever said one thing and shown the exact opposite?

For instance, I’ve told people two glasses of wine can knock me out. I would never share that I can down an entire bottle and stay awake. Obviously, I am impaired, but I’m still wide awake. Well, I just shared, but I’ll hold my fingers accountable for that.

In many cases, it’s okay to show one face to the public and one face in private. When the two intersect, it can be hypocritical depending on the receiver. Here’s another fun example. My co-worker interviewed several applicants for a position opening.

The candidate was charming, spoke highly of the company, and had many skills.Unfortunately, as in life, there is usually someone better than you (reader rest assured it’s not me), so my co-worker opted to go with someone who had more of the skills she was looking for.

This charming schmoozer with a wide variety of skills replied to the rejection email with 🖕.  I’ve never seen that either. Takeaway? We can’t judge a book by its cover because it may be missing crucial pages. C’est la vie.

“My head’s above the rain and roses”

So, I had an eventful week. I had a birthday. I went to a workshop. I learned that I’m a ‘get appreciated’ personality type (according to the workshop). Good stuff huh? Although, that’s not the most important take away from this week. I also learned I could pass for a real life Laurie should I ever want to change my name.

and-the-truth-thats-in-the-message

The workshop dude thought my name was Laurie. When I first started working with one of my co-workers, she called me Laurie and called another co-worker Lisa whose name was Laurie. I know what you’re thinking because I thought about it for a bit. Unforgettable was my first thought, so I had to do some digging. I mean, my self-esteem was on the line!

I decided a name is just a name. Sometimes, I don’t feel like a Lisa (my formal name is actually Alisa; huh lol), and I feel more like a Laylah. Then there are days I feel like Sunshine. I don’t feel like a Jasmine anymore, though. Those days are over. The moral of my story? Sorry, but I don’t have one. This story is only beginning (or at least in the middle of the book). 😉
