Updates On This INFP’s Life


Well, there’s good news, and there’s bad news.

The bad news is—nothing! (Well, apart from world-wide suffering, deforestation and animal cruelty, of course). I just—sorry, was that a bad joke? Sorry. It’s just that, in movies and films, they always have that line, “bad news” and “good news”, and it’s like, well, I thought I’d just try it out for a change.

The good news is, I recently finished another book. This one, I will be sending into a publisher next week Thursday. After a couple more edits—just skim-overs—it’ll be done, and then, off it goes, to its new fate: maybe it’ll get accepted, maybe it won’t. Either way, at least I gave it a go, as Australians like to say.

It’s a book…well, to be honest, I can’t actually say anything about it without ruining everything. Let’s just say, there’s a train in it, and lots of magic. A magical train. And that is as far as I’ll go. Sorry. If it ever gets published—I am really proud of this one, so it has, I don’t know, maybe a 1% chance of actually getting accepted—then you’ll all find out what it is about!

I’m also turning the book I have posted on this blog into a full-fledged book. I don’t know what to do about the copy I already have on this blog though, because if the new book gets published, and someone—say, from the publishers—stumbles across this blog, and finds a similar piece of work on it, I might get in trouble for copyright, for copying myself! Anyway. That’s all stuff in the offing; I haven’t even got a single reply from a publisher yet, in my entire life.

There is bad news. The bad news is, despite being already in my twenties, I have never dated, or been on a date, or kissed a man, or even dabbled in anything close to a relationship.
Certainly, I am happy with the life I am living now, indulging in my passions part-time while working the rest of the time, but at night—and NOT for sexual reasons—I do get rather lonely, and feel it would be nice to cuddle up with someone. Preferably someone who is not my own mother. It’s just not the same.

I have considered online dating, but then, people tell me that’s a kettle of fish you have to be prepared to dip your toes into. You just never know who you might meet.

Let’s see. What else? Nothing, really. I have been sleeping an awful lot lately, since it is the long weekend here in Australia. It was Australia Day! A day to celebrate how wonderful it is to live in Australia, for all people. I do like Australia. It is my home, after all. Apart from the very rare racist person, in fact, it’s pretty excellent.

Well, that’s it from me. I am, for once, actually running out of things to say. In the past, many people have wronged me, or picked on me, and, as I live my life, and grow happier and more confident, I sometimes wish, with the taste of bitter regret in my mouth, that I had been as confident and sure as myself from the very beginning, instead of painfully shy and sensitive, and an easy target. Well, that’s really it. See you later.

PS: I sometimes get comments regarding music, and I would just like to say, just for the record, that Taylor Swift is practically all I ever listen to. As an INFP, her music resonates with me on a very deep, very great level, and I adore her, and ALL of her music.

  1. Imagine your ideal relationship: what would you like to do with this person? Write single verbs about it. So how would you express your love? Write short phrases about it. And how would you like to be shown his love? Again, write short phrases or words.
    So by now, you’ll have:
    1) Places and activities to go alone, or to try with a friend. Just to explore more about the stuffs you’ll like to do with the love one.
    2)You’ll know more about you: is your means of appealing love is practical? (mine was about suggesting that I was in love, or offering an ear, or time. Not going anywhere)
    3)You’ll know more about the white flags to noticee when meeting a new individual: has this person what you want? (and if you got a crush, already, are you going to suffer a lot because this person is bad for you, as unable to show you love the way you need it?)

    Internet apps is about being good at writing accurately, and timing of answers. There’s a lot of difference in reality. So to my mind, it’s not suitable for INFP. As there’ll be a lot of misunderstanding, it’s better to see for real the individual.
    Find a dancing club. Or a sports one. Or a book club. Better is to go for a speech club, or a theatre one. Never did that but some pals told me it helped them to become more talkative, less shy.

    • Let’s see. I think I would like to be shown love by visiting places together, just like you. Also, since I am a creative person, poetry and other forms of love would be a good idea too. In fact—and thank you for writing this—just lying with him, under the stars would be enough. I will definitely try to join some clubs or groups: it’s a little hard, since I don’t go to university. Thank you. I would show love by dedicating books to him, and writing songs about our romantic relationship. Well, what do you think? It has a lot to do with writing, my thoughts on how to go about showing lobe in a relationship, because writing is one of my greatest lives. Thanks again. Lots of food for thought. x

  2. Omg you like Taylor swift!!! She is my favorite singer!!! Which is your favorite song of her? And you wrote a book about a magical train. Honestly i’d read anything as long as it involves magic. I really hope your book gets published.
    If it makes you feel any better I have never kissed a guy either or been on a date. And I am 19 years old already lol

    • Haha, well I am 20, and I have never been on a date or kissed a guy, either! And yes, it is about a magical train—details are too confidential to be spoken about, because it would give it all away! I adore Taylor Swift—my favourite album of hers is 1989, and my favourite song is Wonderland. I also like the song Red.
