This Is Exactly What Makes You So Damn Annoying, Based On Your Zodiac Sign | Thought Catalog

Aries, you strongly believe you are destined for great things. You’re highly motivated and driven, but sometimes people just wish you’d stop worshipping at your own altar.

Your highly competitive nature is not only annoying, but it makes others feel run over. You can sometimes forget how to be part of a team and it makes it difficult for others to work or collaborate with you. You’re that kid in class nobody wanted on their project because everything had to be done their way.

You like to take charge and you can become dismissive of other people’s feelings, thoughts, and opinions.

This take charge attitude can also lead you do make hasty and rash decisions without thinking of the repercussions. You’re headstrong and determined, doing what you want when you want and how you want. Nobody can influence you or tell you what to do. You’re highly impulsive and don’t think twice before acting on a situation. Seriously, take a moment to weigh the consequences.

You’re self-centered and very me-oriented. The world revolves around you, nobody’s successes are as big as yours, and nobody’s problems are as big as yours. You make people around you feel like they can’t talk to you without you turning the conversation back to you.

Your self-interest only makes you hot-tempered and angry when things don’t go your way and the only thing more annoying than you is a child having a tantrum.

To Clean or Not to Clean, That is the Question

Right now purging is all the rage. We’ve been slowly doing this for quite sometime. Our goal is to get to a much more minimalist lifestyle and to possess about half of what we do now.

Keeping in mind, we already purged about 40-50% before we moved from a 2,000 sq.ft. house with a two car garage and outside storage shed, down to a 1,500 sq.ft townhouse with tons of storage to a 1942 Cape Cod style home also around 1,500 sq.ft., but with little storage. They say layout is everything and where the townhouse had lots of storage space and slowest that stretched across an entire room, the master we have now has a 24 inch wide and a 30 inch wide closet. Now that we lived with the current situation for a few years I am dying to de-clutter even more.

My problem with decluttering currently is I suffer from Bipolar Disorder Type II. What this means is that I tend to have impulse control issues and can be excessive, let’s call it “regrettable judgement”. I try not to purge and declutter when I am really driven to do so, because having gone overboard in the past i have over-purged too much. So now, i try to restrain my self when I am in the mood to purge because I am afraid I may be having a minor manic episode and don’t want to go overboard. Of course, this means that purging is a very slow process.

It makes it a slow going a frustrating process. Not helping things is that every Friday I take chemo drugs in the morning and evening that tend to make me a bit tired sometimes, so it is hard for me to get the energy on the weekend. It’s a never ending cycle. I could really use my mommy here for a few weeks to help me. She is an awesome helper at getting what i need done. She’s just so far away.

An Avoidable Tragedy – RIP Mocha

I wrote this post for our non-profit site after a tragic loss.

Pomeranian Club of Central Virginia

An innocent life was tragically cut short today. Another life will most likely be ended as a result.

An innocent life was taken as his mom tried in vain to use her own body to shield him from the attack taking place. Unfortunately, her body was no match for the 150 pound attacker that had prey in its sights. Mocha’s mom is an experienced owner who did everything right and still could not prevent this tragedy.

Please, if you take your dogs out in public, always keep them leashed and make sure you are in control of the leash at all times! This goes for big and little dogs alike. Keep a firm latch on the leash not only to control your dogs behavior, but also to be able to snatch your dog out of harms way in the blink of an eye. If you have a big, strong dog…
