I'm Allison. I see a ton of theatre. I'm a fan of Green Day, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Weezer, Oasis, Adam Rapp, Emily Giffin, and Shakespeare. I run sometimes, and do yoga always.

So, remember this?  Well, I actually went through with it!  I know, what a surprise.  I’ve been seeing one since January and Thursday, while at lunch with my cousin, we talked about it.  She’s a big supporter of therapy, meditation, yoga, etc.  I told her I was bored with it and she said that saying that I was “bored with therapy” was basically saying that I was “bored with myself.”  I realized then that I am kind of bored with myself, or at least my life.  I’m not unhappy, but there’s just nothing super exciting going on right now.  I’m not exactly sure how I can change this.  I think I still have issues but they’re ones that I don’t really want to talk about right now.  They’re not extremely problematic so I’m okay with just letting them sit and steep, so-to-speak.  Initially I wanted to talk to someone who was objective (my friends, how I love them, they are not objective) and I got that.  Now I don’t know what I want.  
Since I’ve stopped dating, there’s been no drama, making me a lot more mentally balanced and not as insane (another huge surprise!).  Maybe I need to date again so that I can find my inner-crazy [again] and deal with issues that arise when I’m dating.  Though with the last boy (the only boy this year) that I went on a few dates with those same issues didn’t arise… so maybe I’m cured?  Probably not.  
I’m digressing and rambling now. All I know is that I don’t want to keep spending money on therapy if it’s not having any affect.
