Here Comes the Sun

I myself have a severe self-proclaimed case of commitment-phobia. According to the very official and scholarly article I'm in the middle of crafting... commitment-phobia is the persistent and constant fear of commitments and obligations. This particular disorder primarily affects adolescence in their early to mid teens and males in their late twenties to early thirties. People who suffer from commitment-phobia may experience periods of lethargy. They may avoid such activities as turning things in on time, leaving the house, returning calls/text messages, and sticking to promises. To an untrained eye, one may confuse commitment-phobia with pure laziness. Though rest assured, these individuals are not lazy... They just require a bit more motivation and time than others. No one knows what causes commitment-phobia, but it is certain that at this time there is no immediate cure.
However, I have discovered things that will make commitment-phobia exponentially worse. I've become one of those people. The people I used to both envy and despise-- people with a Netflix subscriptions. Just the other day I completed two seasons of Doctor Who. This apparently is doing nothing for my stress levels, as nine times out of ten you can find me screaming obscenities at characters through my computer screen. My reasoning; If I scream loud enough perhaps my words will travel through time and space and reach Steven Moffat. I'm convinced that it happens.
