The Levelheadedness Badge*
So, here’s the thing about Right Now and The World: shit is crazy. I think we all know about The Birds (Hitchcock is currently rolling in his grave, realizing that this is so much scarier) and the fish and the bees and the LOST numbers and that lady who tried to call the police on her boyfriend to make him propose and every other piece of chaos that is heavily implying that the seams are showing on the Matrix and the end is nigh. And some people are really and truly freaking out about all of this.
But you are not! You recognize that Tami Taylor wouldn’t believe in aliens. You know that unless you’re a scientist or the government or Anderson Cooper, your concern is not actually helping. Or maybe you don’t even think twice — you only see the logical side, the rational side, the side that sleeps easily at night and doesn’t hyperventilate in the office bathroom.
“Holy god,” you are thinking to yourself, “I am a grown-ass woman and I can recognize that the world is a bananas place where initially inexplicable things happen and very often we later get explanations for them. OR NOT. Whatever. Life has to keep going! You cannot stop and weep over every small oddity, or talk endlessly about what the moon is doing to your romantic life, or fret about the possibility that North Korea has black magic astrotechnology. There is work to be done! SNAP OUT OF IT, people!”
Pin this badge this badge a little crooked if you want, you earned it.
*This badge is intended to compliment, and not to shame, The “Accepting Your Crazy” Badge.
