I wrote this in 2011 for my Psychology class. It’s weird looking back on this because I wrote about J, who I most definitely am not in a relationship with anymore. Wow, times have changed…

In my opinion, intuition is your gut feeling, voice in your head, God speaking, and many other names for your inner voice. It is almost instinctual, in a sense, built on your primal thoughts and reactions. Of course, it can be influenced by outside forces, but inherently it’s your individual, raw thoughts inside of you.

I mostly trust my intuition. It has been correct many times, more so than wrong. The most times it has been incorrect is when I was going after crushes on boys I had in the past. One in particular was devastating, and led to my first bipolar episode. But I’m very glad I went through all of those rejections because it helped me to find the love of my life, and the man that I am pretty confident that I will marry. In that sense, my refined intuition was very helpful and correct. Although, sometimes I have uncomfortable feelings when seeing him conversing with other girls online (We’re in a long distance relationship). But he assures me that it’s nothing to worry about. He has never been unfaithful in any of his girlfriends in the past, and my relationship has so far lasted six times longer than his second longest relationship. In that way, my inner voice could use a little confidence boost and more faith in him. But what woman doesn’t wonder about their partner?

It is very useful, learning to understand and think about how correct your intuition can be. As is always the case, it can be wrong. Don’t put all of your faith in it. But do trust that it’s your mind giving you some advice that can be useful.

Yes, I just made a Katy Perry reference. I am not ashamed to admit that I have recently come obsessed with her Teenage Dream album. Pretty much every song I love. In fact, I have it on repeat right now as I’m writing this entry.

So… Yesterday was really fun! It was extremely busy! I had my first exam in College Algebra in the morning. I think it went okay, but who knows. I could think it and then find out I failed. Well, I know I didn’t fail because I was confident in most of my work. There were only about two or three problems that I was unsure about so I bs’d my way through them in a way that could make possible sense. We’ll see if I get them right.

I had a nice lunch time with S too. I do love spending time with her. She’s nice and awesome, and all around a good person. We don’t see each other much, but we shall remedy that fact and hang out more often. Promise.

Psychology was fun too. It had been a week since I read the material that the quiz was over, so I’m not sure I did so well on it. Oh well. I really enjoy that class. We get into great discussions. I even boggled a few people’s minds about the positive correlation between ice cream and homicides…

Chamber Singers was refreshingly short. I missed the rehearsal with the string quartet because I was in a class, but we rehearsed a beautiful version of Ave Maria for the Webster Reunion Mass. I’m looking forward to performing tomorrow in the September 11th Memorial Concert! It’ll be great! Time to whip out that concert dress and get all glamourous!

Later that evening, I went to the Pearson House for some play readings. It was great fun! I got to read the part of Cassie in S’s own creation, Don’t Look Back. It’s fantastic! I wish it could be performed for Surfacing… People would love it! It’s a cross between a scene between a couple set in real time and simultaneously following the Greek myth of Orpheus and Euridice! Genius! We just happen to be performing Gluck’s opera of it as well, so… it’s awesome! Let’s see if she can be convinced to submit it… All of this reading of plays awakened the actress inside me, making me remember how much I love drama and the stage. Someday I really do want to be in a production of some sort. It appears that the Opera stage doesn’t quite want to include me, but who knows what the future holds. I could show all past failures up and become a legend.

Then I spent the majority of the night writing, chatting, reading, etc until my roommate came back from working at Dairy Queen at 11:30, I think it was. She brought me back an Ooey Gooey Caramel Brownie Blizzard! It was scrumptious! I couldn’t finish it, it was so rich, and now it’s residing in the freezer until I want to eat more. Right after I put it in the freezer, this enormous craving for salty washed over me. I just had to have some! We were talking and suddenly it specified into McDonald’s fries. Unfortunately, there were no McDonald’s open after midnight… So we decided to head on over to Steak n Shake. I got chicken fingers, onion rings, and fries with ketchup and buffalo sauce. Talk about grease, fat, and yuckiness for my body. But it was gloriously good! I don’t know if it was because of cravings and hypersensitivity to taste and smell or what, but it was the best I ever had at Steak n Shake! A and I had good times talking and laughing about boys, sex, and theatre. Great times.

I didn’t get to bed until… let’s just say… really late. But I only slept in until 11:20 am today! My darn body clock doesn’t really let me sleep in until the afternoon. Oh well. I’ve spent my day being productively unproductive. And I don’t mind one bit.

It’s time for me to read some of my Psychology book for Monday. It’s interesting, so I don’t really mind so much.

Tomorrow is the really busy day; this is just the calm before the whirlwind of events to come!

Have a great evening!

❤ Me
