A Sickness of the Brain


Yesterday I read an article in National Geographic; basically, it claimed that love and OCD are the same disease. Both are caused by almost the same chemical imbalance in the brain. Thus, being "in love" should count as a mental illness. This would also explain why regardless of how many times a person may get hurt by someone they are "in love" with, they continue to try their hand at the love game. It's an addiction, people- one meant to ensure that life on our planet continues. We are biological and chemical fools, and damned if we can do anything about it.

Bearing this in mind, I see two options:
1. We (and by we I mean the collective "we") revolt against our very natures and strive to live independently, alone, depending solely on ourselves for comfort and provision.
OR
2. We revel in our helplessness and succumb to the inevitable. We will fall in love. And it will either last forever or it won't.

That is some mad Buddha wisdom. Word.

I agree with Buddha—does that mean I have to give back my “member of the collective we” membership card?

What about if you're obsessive about categorizing the conversation hearts into like colors before you eat them? My OCD tendencies further force me to then alphabetically organize the notes within each said color.
Personally, I like being OCD. Always have, always will.

Yes, Meg, I've always admired your dedication to organization. I remember fondly when we rearranged your room and how very close you came to kicking the shit out of us.

I pretty much zoned out halfway through reading your post (I'm totally high on NyQuil right now), but goddamn if I don't want some candy hearts. Mmm. Fuck V-Day, but Yes C-Hearts.

Even better: I want my own personalized bag o' heart tastiness. Possible messages could include "Aaron is sex-ay", "Aaron is smokin' hot", and "Aaron + Candy 4-eva".

Conversation hearts are right at the bottom of the candy list, along with circus peanuts and NECCO wafers. I think it's the Nyquil talking.
