Social anxiety keeps me from having a lot of friends or making a lot of friends. Occasionally I make an effort to put myself out there but it's usually just too overwhelming. I turn to television shows for comfort and friendship. I rewatch Parks and Rec, Community and Brooklyn 99 in rotation. The characters make me feel less alone. The stories let me escape my own for a while. It feels kind of pathetic to finally admit that these fictional characters are more like friends to me than most people in real life.

I'm playing through the original Borderlands while at the same time watching S3E21. Amy is under cover in prison and at the end Maura (bad guy Jimmy's sister) says, "I could use a bruiser on my team." Amy responds, "I'm not a bruiser, I'm a pyscho."
I don't know why but I got super pumped on this!
