Sometimes it seems like my entire life is just me testing my brain to see if it can keep up with reality. Then I remember that that means that my brain is actually the one testing my brain, and neither of my brains have the answer key so it is very much the blind leading the blind and this was a fruitless endeavor.
It’s probably exactly that kind of nonsensical thinking that leads my neurons to look at each other, shrug, give up, and just start pumping out whatever random data they can muster regardless of its relevance to the situation at hand.
You probably understand. And at the very least, these people on Twitter definitely understand.

We gotta pump that iron before we move those lips.

8. Lock and check and lock and check
And now you’re wondering about it yourself, aren’t you?

Me: Did I lock the door?

7. Sound test
Is this beat thick or did somebody just break into my house?
Checking to see if those weird sounds apart of the music or not. pic.twitter.com/Xo66QOpcbD

5. Three packs a day
Two shirts, two pairs of pants, a swimsuit just in case, and 900 pairs of boxers.
Does anyone else pack underwear for a trip like they're planning on shitting themselves twice for every day they're gone?

4. Not dumb
And still had the presence of mind to articulate it. Impressive.
A guy in class got called on to answer a question and after a short pause he says, “hang on, I’m not dumb I’m just panicking.” I felt that. The guy next to me felt that. Your mom felt that. The world felt that.

3. The practice read
Can’t screw this up and end up in B group.
In elementary school when we would have read out loud to the class from the textbook I would literally count the kids in front of me and figure out what section I was reading so I could practice it before it got to my turn & I think that’s where my anxiety started.

2. Date of birth?
If I can’t find it I might just fade away like in Back to the Future.
