I’m a fan of Tumblr. I can waste hours on Tumblr watching gifs of my favorite shows and movies and losing myself in stupid viral videos. It is a huge time suck for me and a place I go when I’m totally bored and just need to kill time or find a way to numb my brain from what is happening around me.
Recently I lost myself down the Tumblr rabbit hole of Friends related pages. And I discovered something. I am Chandler Bing.
Let me explain:
I’m 45 years old and I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. I mean, I know what I’d like to be doing, but without unlimited free time and a shit ton of money for a whole new college education … that’s not gonna happen. So … yeah.
I’m an idiot. I have a kick-ass sense of humor and have been told by many people that I’m quite funny. But really … just an idiot.
If you say something dumb, or make a typo on Facebook, misspeak a cliche, or fall down … I will make fun of you. Relentlessly.
Sarcasm is my first language. Some days … it’s my only language.
Food is a huge weakness for me. I started running to, yes lose weight and get in shape, but also so I can continue to eat whatever I want. Even if that means I have Whoppers for breakfast and Swedish Fish for lunch and a large pizza with 6 beers for dinner, so be it. At least I ran today.
I will swallow my feelings until I explode. And even then I’ll pick them all up and put them right back in where they belong.
The amount of guilt and crippling low self esteem I carry with me daily is staggering. Sometimes I wonder how I can manage to walk to the bathroom when I get out of bed in the morning.
I love a good bath. I swear, if I won the lottery, I’d spend it all on Lush bath bombs.
And to round out my similarities:
Yep. I am Chandler Bing. And I’m pretty okay with that.
