The Center of the Universe

29 Jan

One of the big problems that we as humans have to face is

Other People 

Honestly, I don’t even know what to do with them most of the time.

In my sixteen years as a homo-sapien sapien, I’ve only figured out only one thing about the human race:

The solar system doesn’t revolve around the sun. The universe revolves around yourself.

Every one is the center of their own universe. I have found myself saying that to angry and frustrated friends time and time again this year.

One’s dire problems and earth-shattering events are only dire and earth-shattering to that person.

Nobody cares that your car broke down. Their car is perfectly fine.

Sure, they will help you (maybe,) but it’s not their problem!




It is your problem.

While you think about yourself, they are thinking about themselves.

Sure, parents say their worlds revolve around their kids.


News flash: parents care about themselves just as much as anyone else.

They need to take care of their little life and money sucking leashes because A.) They don’t want to be arrested for child neglect and B.) Biology makes them do it.

Let’s talk about why we do each other favors then.

Situation A: An average Joe is asked by a colleague to give a paper to someone as he is leaving his office.

Resolution a: Joe says no and goes home.

Resolution b: Joe says yes.

Let’s say Joe says no. He’s going home. Maybe to his family. Maybe he wants to catch the new episode of Supernatural. He is thinking about himself and that’s perfectly acceptable. He doesn’t want to miss the new episode of Supernatural or family dinner night.

But the colleague of Joe’s could have the same exact things going on, so Joe is an ass for not saying yes.

So Joe is justified to himself, but in the wrong to his colleague.

But what if Joe says yes? Why did he say yes?

Maybe the person he was asked to give the paper to was on his way. Still, he could have said no and spared himself the awkward conversation between two people who are not friends.

What if the person was on the other side of the building? Or really hated Joe? Or was creepy?

Why did Joe say yes?

It’s because Joe wants something.

Maybe Joe wants

  1. people to like him.
  2. to please his god.
  3. to be nice.

By why does he want people to like him? So they will be nice to him and do things for him in return?

I’m going to go with yes.

So he wants to please god, eh? What does god do for you? Give you eternal salvation? A nice, comfortable afterlife? Joe is making sure he will be comfortable after death. It’s like a spiritual retirement fund. He’s not doing the favor for his colleague. He’s doing it for himself so he can be cozy where everything’s white and fluffy.

And why is someone nice?

Either they are secretly a serial killer or they want something. (Or they are somewhere in there.)

People do things for other people because they are indirectly doing it for themselves.

And that’s okay!

Be the center of your universe! Everyone does it! All the cool kids are doing it!

Have some science to back yourself up:

Just remember, not everyone thinks you are the center of it. They think they are.

Don’t get mad when people are too wrapped up in their own problems to help you with yours.

It’s your problem. Deal with it.

It’s their problem. Deal with it.

If you want someone to focus on your problems, see a therapist. That’s their job.

End note: I am not a philosopher, psychologist, or social scientist. This is based on my experience with dealing with other people. Also, I’m in a bad mood so it’s a but pessimistic. But that doesn’t mean I’m wrong.

Introverted, iNtuitive, Feeling, and Percieving

28 Jan

Since my last post about life as an INFP got so many views, let’s do it again!

INFPs are the healers of the MBTI. We’re the idealists and daydreamers.

We are the J.K. Rowlings, the John Lennons, and the Vincent Van Goghs.


And then



But then we say to each other

“Because you may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one,” – John Lennon Imagine 

Life as an INFP can be hard when we come down out of our clouds and into the world where we have to deal with other people.

We don’t understand other people and they don’t usually understand us. But honestly,

And even though

We are the 4%

And we

And (The most accurate awkward penguin meme I’ve ever seen!)

The world may seem like a cruel place to us. The people are loud and noisy and don’t understand.

But we are awesome, guys. We really are.

Because look at who some of us are:

  1. Jean-Jacques Rousseau
  2. George Orwell
  3. J.R.R. Tolkien
  4. C.S. Lewis
  5. Virginia Woolf
  6. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
  7. A. A. Milne
  8. Bill Watterson

  9. J.K. Rowling
  10. Edgar Allen Poe
  11. John Milton
  12. William Blake
  13. Franz Kafka
  14. Vincent Van Gogh
  15. Hans Christian Andersen
  17. Homer
  18. John Lennon
  19. Kurt Cobain
  20. Tim Burton
  21. Johnny Depp
  22. Heath Ledger
  23. Nicolas Cage
  24. Florence Welch
  25. Bjork
  26. Tori Amos
  27. Thom Yorke
  28. David Simon
  29. Andy Warhol
  30. Jude Law
  31. Mary Kate Olsen
  32. Andrew Garfield

And so many more!

So as long as we stay away from

We will be just fine.

Here are some tips from a non-INFP for dealing with other people.

I’ll finish with this with a meme courtesy of Google Images.

Auf Wiedersehen

A Dream about John Green (and pirate rats)

22 Jan

So in the dream I was in a play about pirates.

It was a really bad play and the director was awful…

But the director was JOHN GREEN.

Yeah, TFiOS John Green.

And he SUCKED at directing.

So I was like, “Dude, have you ever directed a play before?”

And he’s like, “No, I write books and make YouTube videos.”

Me: “Do you need some help, man?”

John: “Yes, please. Thank you.”

Me: “I don’t know if I should. You killed [Spoiler censor]

John: I’m sorry! I had to!

Me: I suppose I can’t be too mad. Veronica Roth killed [Spoiler censor]

John: Did you just finish Allegiant? I’m so sorry.

Me: I know… I know…

And then we kind of just nodded at each other and some rats in pirate costumes were sword fighting.

John: This wasn’t my best idea.

Me: No, it was MINE!

And then I figured out it was all a dream. And I woke up.

No wonder I get migraines.

INFP, Shakespeare, and My Issues with Human Anatomy

15 May

If I had to pick the one thing or study I enjoy the most, I’d have to say it’s Psychology.

When it comes to Psychology, you can’t hide. You can try, but you really can’t. It just shows more about your character and personality. I’ve taken hundreds of personality assessment quizzes and read about a dozen of psych books.

My favorite personality indicator is the Meyers Briggs. I’ve taken the test hundreds of times and made my friends and family do it too. I’m a steady INFP and proud of it! Well… Maybe not of my nonexistent people skills!




If you want to take my favorite version of the test, go here.

One of my new favorite hobbies is to challenge my friend Claire (mentioned in a previous post) to Shakespearean duels throughout the day.

“I bite my thumb at you sir!”
“Rosey. Stop.”
“Dost thou disrespect the house of Mulvey?”
“Dost thou disrespecteth my house? Draw thy sword.”
“Draw. Thy. Sword.”
“Oh my GOD. You’re so annoying.”
“Thine words be meretricious. You reveal thy cowardice by refusing my duel. You’ve left the gauntlet on the floor with thine honor.”
“Go away.”
“I ain’t even bovvered. Lookers at my face. Not bovvered.”

And on it goes. At some point, one of us gives in or gets bored. Once I get a bit more practice, I’ll start speaking in iambic pentameter. That’d ought to be interesting.

On a completely different topic…

I’m actually really bothered by the liver. Human livers are weird to me. They don’t look like the other organs. Proper organs are red and firm and strong. Livers are like goo. They flop around and are a weird color. It’s like a beef cutlet inside your abdomen.
WARNING: Picture of a human liver follows.

It seems different to me than the other organs. I know it’s important and stuff for living and has a wide range of functions, including detoxification, protein synthesis, and production of biochemicals necessary for digestion (thanks Wikipedia!). Blech. No.

That’s about it for today! Well… yesterday but… whatever. I’ll try to post something else today.

Welcome to My Blog!

7 May

Hello there, lovely reader! My name is Rosey and this is my blog.

Wow, this is actually quite difficult.

I am an aspiring writer and maybe a speech pathologist. Or a surgeon. Or an ambassador. I really don’t know anymore. More about me: I’m American, between the ages of 10 and 100, and have hair, a face, and feet. I am a member of many fandoms including Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, and Supernatural. I use the Oxford comma and a PC.

I’m writing this blog while writing a theatrical adaption of Lord of the Flies with an all-girl, low budget cast. At this time, I’m on act one, scene three, and keep drifting away from it. In three days, I’ve written two pages. This blog is to keep me motivated to write more. The play needs to be finished during the summer so it can be performed next school year.

That chick Kelsi from High School Musical made this look so easy.

Image <– This is not me. (Kelsi from HSM)

J.K. Rowling is also not me. –> 

<– Janet Devlin kind of looks like me.

Okay, enough pictures. I should keep writing the play.

Rosey is signing off!
