    Star Wars: The Bored Awakens

    Eh, it depends I guess. I originally went to grad school for counseling and it didn't seem too competitive. Neither was my clinical social work program, which is one of the best in my state. So I'm gonna go on a rant regarding friendships as an adult, and the ever so tricky situations that arise when they decide to become a consultant. Mary Kay, Avon, Scentsy, Norwex, Lularoe, Pampered Chef, Tastefully Simple, Tupperware, 31 Bags, Jamberry, Beach Body, and now Doterra. Name the company, and I have a friend who's a consultant or coach, or whatever that company calls their people. Initially I was happy to go to a party and buy an item or two to throw some business their way and help them out. But as time goes on, it's getting really irritating. I keep getting invites and "oh it's been a while since you've gotten anything, surely you need scentsy refills by now?" and they keep targeting me to buy more. I've got one friend in particular who does Scentsy, Lularoe, Jamberry, and 31. It's constant harassment. When people aren't getting enough business, the messages start about how people really should think about where their money is going. "Support local businesses and stop funding big business." Ugh! But in the end, I'm a social worker. I make a decent salary these days, but not enough for me to just throw my money around carelessly. Almost all of these items are over priced because not only does the parent company need to make a profit, but the independent consultant needs their profit too. I also find the items to be of questionable quality and in the end I just prefer other brands that are of better quality for an equal or lesser price. If you are my friend, you'll understand that and back off. I'm your friend, not your customer. In social work we have some pretty strict rules about dual relationships and they exist for a reason. It just makes thing really uncomfortable for me. So anyhow, a friend of mine recently announced that she's now selling essential oils through Doterra. Being my kind self, I mentioned wanting to buy an essential oil diffuser and some essential oils to go with it as a housewarming gift for my little sister. I have one in my bedroom, and my Fitbit will confirm that since I started using it with lavender oil at night, my sleep quality has improved. I think it's more due to the added moisture in the air, but I do like the lavender scent too. My friend sends me the link to her shop and the prices are ridiculous. I bought my diffuser off of Amazon for $20 and a set of 6 EOs for another $20. The diffuser she's selling is almost $100. No! I'm not paying that. The oils I've looked at are between $27-$80 for a single bottle! I know that the ones I have aren't the best grade out there, and I'm willing to pay a bit more than what I have, but I can't even begin to justify those prices. She's harassed me about making a purchase every day since. This isn't friend behavior. This is attempting to take advantage of me for your own gain type behavior. Not cool people.

    Nope. Not even 7pm here. The person below me hasn't been getting enough sleep.

    It's not that I don't understand where you are coming from. I get the point you were trying to make, I won't argue with that. The words you selected in making that point were hurtful and unnecessary. The whole thing never even needed to be said. I won't apologize for having feelings and wanting to be treated with respect.

    Everyone keeps assuring me that it's not uncommon for patients to do that. People will be staying with them for hours on end, and to moment they go to the bathroom is when the patient will die. It's like they want it to be private.

    They really are. It was funny, the other day I was having a bad day at work. All my patients kept canceling on me and I had nothing to do. I was complaining to my boyfriend who says "give me a 10min head start and I'll meet you at the sushi place. Get you out of the office a little." I get to the sushi place and it's closed, so I called him and he answers the phone saying "in all the time we've been dating, you have never called me before. Are you ok? I'm a little concerned." That's how much I hate talking on the phone to anyone.

    104 ... I screwed up my last count. Oh dear. That was my quote of choice for National Siblings Day this year. Last year's was better... "If parents are the fixed stars in the child's universe, the vaguely understood, distant but constant celestial spheres, siblings are the dazzling, sometimes scorching comets whizzing nearby." — Alison Gopnik
