Periods and Rejection Letters
I am no longer allowed to open up letters from literary agents while I am on my menstrual cycle.
Yep, you read that correctly.
(Too much information? Too bad. Don't read this post then.)
You see, most of the letters I get back from agents are rejection letters and I'm already in a bloody bad mood during that time of the month, so I've learned that I really, really, like REALLY need to refrain myself from opening up those dang letters until after my period has passed and I have come back into a better, stabler, more saner state of mind.
You see (I've said this twice now), I get VERY emotional the week of and before my period. Like psychotic crazy. I start balling over nothing and I can easily become angry and it SUCKS!
I try to be, you know (or maybe you don't, "you know" is such a weird saying isn't it?), optimistic about the fact that I'm not pregnant, but I obviously know this already because I have not yet partaken in the horizontal mambo. However, as the Virgin Mary has proven to the world... abstinence is 99.99% effective.
But come on God... Mother Nature... whoever!?!?!?!?! It's the 21st Century. Can't I just get the same message in the form of a text instead?
|I'm TOTALLY ok with this!|
- My vagina is detaching itself from the rest of my body.
- This sucks!
- I'm crying over a stupid Swifter commercial.
- I'm mad because you didn't smile at me!
- Wow, I'm so dumb.
- There goes a pair of my cutest underwear!
- I'm going to die.
- I'm going to kill someone!
- Why wasn't I born a boy?
- Why was I born at all?
- I hate all of you!
- Awe, how cute? I just woke up in a pool of my own blood.
And as you can see, you don't want to open up a potential rejection letter in that state of mind... at least I certainly don't.
Blog to you later!
