Known as patentpending on LJ.

I actually write very personal things in my journal. I may sometimes post photos with nudity. I rant and aren't exactly politically correct or PG. If you aren't comfortable with those things please don't bother adding me.

If you want to be added please leave a comment and an actual reason as to why you are adding me and we will see where things go from there. :]

I will not add you if you do not leave a comment.

Osaka, Japan. The place where you can point to a random stranger, say “BANG”, and they’ll pretend you’ve shot them.

Jumped overboard because the water’s always greener
when the sun shines on the sea
Would you drown for me?
It’s just as deep as you can make it
you tread water when you could stand on your knees
but don’t pray to me.

boys wear overcoats in heat like this to keep themselves from showing
girls fill out prescriptions for the tricks that keep their hearts from growing
specialists review the year in tears and call for drastic measures
send them to resorts for boys and girl to get their shit together

sad but true the facts of life are bound to get you down
so whats the use dear jenny anyway the world is pretty....

patentpending's Existing Situation

Dissatisfied. The need to escape continued involvement with her present circumstances makes it imperative for her to find some solution.


patentpending's Stress Sources

An existing situation or relationship is unsatisfactory, but she feels unable to change it to bring about the sense of belonging which she needs. Unwilling to expose her vulnerability, she therefore continues to resist this state of affairs, but feels dependent on the attachment. This not only depresses her. but makes her irritable and impatient, producing considerable restlessness and the urge to get away from the situation, either actually or, at least, mentally. Ability to concentrate may suffer.


patentpending's Restrained Characteristics

Unhappy at the resistance she feels whenever she tries to assert herself. However, she believes that there is little she can do and that she must make the best of the situation.

Egocentric and therefore quick to take offense. Sensitive and sentimental, but conceals this from all except those very close to him.


patentpending's Desired Objective

In despair and needs relief of some sort. Wants physical ease, a problem free security, and the chance to recover.


patentpending's Actual Problem

Anxiety and restless dissatisfaction, either with circumstances or with unfulfilled emotional requirements, have produced stress. She feels misunderstood, disoriented, and unsettled. This drives her into a search for new conditions or relationships, in the hope that these might offer greater contentment and peace of mind.

i'm always building them without paying attention to detail.
they're weak and give way too easily.
i need some new blue prints, but, why bother?
i'm not an architect, so why am i trying to do an architects work?

...i just want to know what's on the other side.

Everything is wrecked and grey
I'm focusing on your image
Can you hear me in the void?
