Laughter and friends.

My friend and I have found a mutual celebrity crush recently, which is odd for us as we both tend to like completely different types of guys. Anyway, we both crush on Hugh Jackman and we are both big fans of puns, and we have been making Hugh puns back and forth all day. We have both realized that we are the only ones who find ourselves hilarious. It seems puns are a dying form of comedy. I laughed at that youtube lady who makes the horrible puns and then laughs because I find it relatable. My boyfriend is subjected to my horrible puns on a daily basis. Most people don't realize how great my sense of humor is, probably because my social anxiety hides that part of my personality. I appreciate many forms of comedy. I like some slapstick comedy, but I find that some of it goes too far. I don't think it's hilarious to torture another human for the sake of comedy, it's different if they're in on it, but just to physically torture them for your own amusement seems cruel to me. Anyway, I love any excuse to laugh lately. I may have a lot of issues, but I am usually able to laugh despite them. I even joke about my anxiety, I know some people are very serious about it, and say it's not a joking matter, but I choose not to take everything so seriously, including myself. There's a time to be serious, and most people who don't know me think I'm always serious, but that's only because I am terrified to really be myself around them. Laughter is what helps keep me going. There's that saying "If I didn't laugh, I'd cry." and I've found it to be true. Sometimes it's just nice to let go of some of my issues and laugh. To me, laughter really is the best medicine. I love to laugh and make up jokes and puns, even though a lot of people don't understand my particular brand of comedy. I am often sarcastic and I do make up terrible puns as well as some off the wall jokes. Only those that really know me know my sense of humor. My boyfriend often rolls his eyes at my jokes, especially my puns lol. Some people just can't appreciate a bad joke. I'm not always serious, but I am usually straight-faced even when I'm joking and most people don't understand that I'm joking but I think that's part of what makes it funny to me, is people being confused. I think most people need a good laugh from time to time. My sense of humor is sometimes one of the few things that keep me going, that, my son, and my faith. I've found when I feel particularly down a little bit of laughter goes a long way. This is one of the ways I deal with my anxiety. Sometimes a good laugh makes me feel better. Everyone has a different sense of humor, but it seems when you find someone with a similar sense of humor as you, it can be a real gem. It helps that my friend and I have very similar personalities and a very similar sense of humor. We understand each other better than those who aren't like us would. My friend is on the other side of the country, but it's nice being able to talk to someone that gets it, especially someone that understands my oddball sense of humor. It just goes to show that you don't always need friends to live near you. I've actually found my online friends probably know me better than my offline ones. The moral of the story is that when life is tough, sometimes you just need a good laugh, and a good friend to help keep you laughing, and to help understand your particular brand of insanity.
