"Sorry it took me like... a day to reply. Yesterday was so sadjhadj (that was supposed to just be a keymash, the fact that it is pronounceable is an amusing fluke) what with my not sleeping and trying to sleep and then waking up an hour later and…"
Procrastination is not the problem, it is the solution!
I like drawing and painting and being alone. And thinking. ... in my BRAIN.
Be who you want to be. Be who you know you are and don't let anyone sway you from the path of your desire, because it is not their path, and it should not be their decision.
The theme of the year. Find your fears, seek them out, face them, and find out why you had nothing to be scared of in the first place. Become a fuller person. Be unafraid of the opinions of people when you begin to reveal your true self to them. They will accept it if you give them no other choice and if they don't accept it you didn't want their friendship anyway. (We know moms always say this, but that's something that came out to be true, now that we're here, in adulthood, and we should listen to them because they know better than society does.)
When awkward things happen, why pretend they didn't? The best comedy comes out of strange and uncomfortable situations, so don't let these rare moments pass through your hands unnoticed. Say what you mean, and don't pretend you like something when you don't, because it's only going to cause more seriousness. and Play! Just play. Race against strangers on the sidewalk and tag them in the park and take your chances where you find them, and in that moment where your head nags at the back of you, "DO IT..." Just go for it. :)
I'm on a long quest to remain as non-serious as possible. I used to think this was because I wanted to stay a kid, but as Hank has shown us, there is a distinction between being a fun adult and being a kid in that fun people can and do keep control over the Important parts of their lives (as kids are unable to do) without letting them become Serious, and they remember that Fun is of the utmost Importance.
As Oscar Wilde told us, "Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about." Well, he was right.

If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
My Bestest Friend Kris, who is afraid to dance with me but who one day will.
Sorry it took me like... a day to reply. Yesterday was so sadjhadj (that was supposed to just be a keymash, the fact that it is pronounceable is an amusing fluke) what with my not sleeping and trying to sleep and then waking up an hour later and such.
But yes! I have six or seven Animorphs books still at my parents' house... maybe more than that. Maybe someday I will work on getting the whole series via ebay or something.
