My next child will be named Patience

Patience is a virtue... so is tranquility... I guess I'm not so virtuous.

Alright, so I'm not a patient person. Not even a little. I'm a lot like my toddler in that way. I want something and I want it NOW! I DO differ in that I can accept bad news with good. I can accept that you can't always get what you want... but I am impatient in that I want to know what I can't have!

My lack of patience most often stems from lack of knowledge (I like to know EVERYTHING)... I hate waiting to find things out. I hate twiddling my thumbs while someone else is involved in a decision.

That's not the only thing that makes me impatient... slow and stupid people do it, too... but there's no cure for stupid in most cases, so I try not to bother past a point.

Today it's the unknown that makes me impatient. The "What's in store." The "What comes next?" I'm not one for mysteries... especially not ones in MY life. I like to know everything... all the time. I hate knowing about a surprise or that something may be coming because knowing that something is coming is making me wait... and, as I said, I am not a patient person. So if there's a "surprise" in the future, I don't want to know. I am so sick of waiting to find things out.

Much like my toddler, I am throwing tantrums and kicking and screaming... only internally... otherwise people would think I was crazy (or crazier than they already believe). Though I do growl on occasion when I am in the laboratory and no one is around... I may even throw a mini-fit to get rid of some of the tension and frustration...

But today I decided that if I am to be cursed with another bastard someday, her name will be Patience... so that I can truly say I once had Patience.
