prone to thinking in absolutes. I feel a strong sense of
responsibility and duty toward people and other living creatures
(one of the reasons I do not eat them, although I apologize in
advance if you are simply too tasty). I judge you like Daria,
give like the Giving Tree, ambivalentize like Holden Caulfield,
argue like Toby Ziegler, walk the fine line between self-deprecation and arrogance like your favorite fiction author, love like Clementine Kruczynski, and excite like Lorelai Gilmore. I also have
other personality traits.
I think that paragraph was rather annoying.
If I grow up, ultimately I want to learn about the workings of this world and the people in it, apply this knowledge to make the world a place that all those people would call home, and participate in this world fully, a little freer from socialized inhibitions and unproductive fear. Who writes things like that?! I'm a little annoyed at myself again.
Most of the time I sport a face that is feeling the effects of gravity, but sometimes people will notice that I am obliviously adlibbing a very loud musical or caught up in the rhythm of my shoes hitting the pavement. My mother always told me I should try to pull my shoulders back a little more. I'm not usually too comfortable with eye contact.
Movies. Once again, movies I like can usually be predicted pretty easily. They won't come to theaters near you, but they're also not obscure enough for me to be so snobby about them. The boxes are covered with saturated color blobs and pencil drawings. The ensemble cast list is long and probably includes somebody from Magnolia. In general, people are sad, friends are mean to each other, and nobody is satisfied by the end.
Music. This line of lyrics is horrible:
I've seen better days/ I've been a star of many plays.
I wish that I could fly/Into the sky/So very high/Just like a dragonfly.
Do dragonflies even fly that high? Is that a thing about dragonflies?!
Update: I've been told it is, in fact, a thing about dragonflies that they fly pretty high.
FOOD. I probably eat healthier than, you know, somebody who eats sticks of transfat dipped in sea salt, but not much healthier. Vegetarian out, veganish in, never straying from deep-fried, grumpy around American cheese and iceberg lettuce, salty over sweet.
why people cannot see the problem with saying "I could care less"
whether something somebody has just said has ever been said before
This American Life. I half listen to 4-8 archived episodes a day, and feel somehow more whole when it fills my background. (I need to be completely honest here; my consumption of TAL decreased significantly after I read Linda Barry's comic about dating Ira Glass: http://bit.ly/15demC7)
what could have happened if I had just done whatever at some particular point in time
stupidity--well, willful ignorance--its prevalence, its solution
where I will be in a year
I have made any spelling or grammatical mistakes in my profile (that would be embarrassing)
you're progressively minded
you have created something that you'd like to share
you believe that honest, open, convoluted communication (maybe with me!) really will make the world a better place
If I don't write back quickly, it's because I'm caught in a battle with self-censorship. I wouldn't be offended if you playfully reminded me to stop taking myself so seriously.
