I tend to simply think. Think about random things (from the voodoo rituals to the effect increased seritonin levels affect behavior), or make up situations in my head. Especially the latter.
Planning tattoos? That sounds phenomenal, although I don't know if I want a tatoo. Do you draw designs? If so, I must see! Tattoos are absolutely beautiful, and they remind me of Queequeg from Moby Dick ^^
I believe that there are no facts. Everything is personal perception, and we have no way to prove otherwise. God, I love solipsism.
Most people in my grade don't understand what I mean by that. They'll argue something like, "Well, what about if I say "that house is red"? Isn't that a fact?" I always respond, "No, it's an opinion of the mind. The Spanish would say "la casa es roja." words are simply interpretations. Secondly, colors are impossible to "prove" because we know that all minds perceive color differently." I my favorite part about the said argument is trying to comprehend that what I see as "blue" may be perceived by someone else as a color I will never see. Mind. Boggling.
As John says, the venn diagramical intersection of guys who don't like smart girls and guys you don't wanna date is a circle.
Booth <3 why does he have such an unusual first name, though? Seeley... Just so odd.
I have insomnia as well, although my mother doesn't believe me. I tend to take 2-4 hours to fall alseep and then I only sleep for 5 hours. Meh.
How are your sleepless nights?
I always rely on metaphors. They're my rocks to stand upon ^^
Either we are both normal, or we are both weird. At least we're "something" together. What I don't want is a man to take over my life negatively, as in command me and force me out of school, work, my dreams, etc.
Booth is a very good man, and acceptable to binge.
I'm, once again, your opposite. I dislike planning, although it is necessary. I like spontaneity and figuring things out as they come.
I wanna live off-campus too ^^. What do to want to be when you grow up?
As for college, I'm the complete opposite. I have a vague idea of where I want to go, what I want to do, and what my job will be.
School? Yale. (a girl can dream.....)
Other? I want a criminal justice and/or law degree.... Maybe. I also really want to take some world religion courses and PHILOSOPHY (which I have a burning passion for).
Actual job? Uh.............. Sociologist? Criminal profiler? Adolescent psychiatrist? Interrogator?
I go for the "better" guys as well! :) I think that primitive urges are much more prevalent now in my adolescent years than I presupposed. I want to be free of my clan and age, but I want to be secured by a strong, warm individual. The previous description reminds me suspiciously of Seeley Booth, who I've mentioned more than once recently. Hmm. Then again, booth is "a suitable alpha-male with pristine physical form and a perfect facial bone structure" (Temperence Brennan, ladies and gentlemen).
Uggh.... Must look at your response again.... I ramble and forget >./body>
I don't really like the idea of abortion, because I find it to be a little disgusting. Also, I don't think I could forgive myself if I killed a little thing with a heartbeat and, well, a brain. On the second hand, I would have no qualms about using the day after pill. I also think it would be ok to have an abortion (maybe) if one was raped. But again, I'm not there, so I dont know.
Your philosophy on guys looks is superb. I will admit that I'd probably have a harder time intially falling in love with anyone butt ugly, but it could be done, im sure. Any guy i have a legitimate, healthy connections will be perfect for me, whether average, cute, or a model.
Intelligence is actually my number one concern in finding a guy. Even if I has to pick between smart and nice. Niceness breeds good friends, but intellect makes (my) relationships. Also, I seem to like difficult guys; mostly, it's because I like to figure people out, and all "mean" people are really inside sweethearts.
Well, except for sociopaths. But I like them too :D
*posts comment and looks back to yours because I can't remember the rest**
I agree. When I think of my rest of my life with a person, I want it to be a relationship based off of a mutual love. All my friends say that looks in a guy is 50% of attraction, but I think it's a bonus to someone. I want someone who, like to said, is my companion, my confidant, my lover, my personal pillow, and my best friend.
^^ cuddling while watching a Disney movie is probably the best way to spend any time. I think the best love is the kind you can feel, not just see.
Yeah, kids are... Questionable. But then again, I don't know how I'll change as a person by that time. Also, if my husband desperately wants kids, I'd reconsider, although not necessarily give in. I'd want to accomadate his needs as well as my own, so that would cause serious think-age.
:D tough guys with sensitive sides are fantastically human. I smile at multifaceted people.
I agree. The future husband I maybe-have-met-but-probably-not-but-who-knows will probably be one of those guys, although I don't mind the openly mushy one's. Id like a man like Seeley Booth; strong, masculine, intelligent, quick-witted, but sensitive, a sweetheart, and utterly committed to who he loves (eh-hem... Brennan!), and definitely not perfect.
I don't like perfect guys. I find that flaws are much like the scoring on a pot; sure, it's damaged, but those imperfections hold a relationship together.
Whoa. Deep thoughts are deep.
I agree with your children premise. Besides my uncertainty in ability as a parent, I know that I want to be a career-oriented, goal-oriented adult. Would a child hinder that? I don't know. I also refuse to have a child simply to have one.. If I have one, it will be with a man I want to live my entire life with and who will raise it with me.
God, I sound like a self-centered prude.
Aww... The sensitive side of our male population reminds me why again I wouldn't mind falling in love. Guys who are cute with kids make me smile (although I dont know if I want children). OMIGOSH I AGREE. that y chromosome must have something to do with the softness and warmness of a man's shoulder. I agree with the safety aspect as well... I figure it's a psychological/ancient response left over from the cave days or something fancy like that. Whatever it is, I appreciate it.
I second the Hank-Child fund. Every baby needs corndog food and Halloween costume ^^
I also agree on your premise with the usage of "hot." I tend to use cute more than adorable, simply because I think of the latter as an exaggeration of the former.
A guy calling a girl beautiful and meaning it is the epitome of eek-ness and masculinity... One must have balls (or be deeply in love) to say that in front of one's male friends, suseptable to teasing him about softness. I also can't help but think how adorable it is when a girl falls asleep on her boyfriend (or simply guyfriend's) shoulders and how humorous it is when the reverse occurs.
On a related note: why is it that guys are the warmest, most cuddle-able and sleep-on-able things but are (usually) embaressed to let us do so? If I find a guy worth dating , I'm claiming his shoulder as my territory for sleeping and/or lazy laying.
I think it's lovely, although it's too small on my iPod to truly see it's nerdy awesomeness.
Corndog Hank-child will be a legend. I wonder what Hank and the Katherine would name it.... Especially if it's a girl.
I wish I were Yeti cute, even though I'm unaware of what she looks like.
Speaking of cuteness, I don't understand why people use the word "hot" to describe people. I find that to mean "appealing sexually" and that makes me feel awkward. "Hot" to me seems to be someone who is attractive in only a physical way, rather than someone one established a deep emotional/mental connection with. It's kinda a lazy, crappy relationship word.
(Random rants FTW?)
I've actuallly sorta been waiting for Hank and Katherine to have a kid... I feel like it's completely necessay to add more awesome to the family.
I really wish that the Katherine and the Yeti would appear in the same video together. I wanna see their faces (google doesn't have any good pictures.. Wow, what a creeper :))
School starts the first day of September that's not a weekend, whatever that is. I believe I'm blowing the whole "summer ending" thing out of proportion cause I love going to school. And I'm quite excited to be a freshman.. Whoot-Whoot!
When does school start for you?
All of johns books are so entertaining and genuine, with some deep-like thoughts hidden between the pages. I wish I was as good of a writer as him (most grammatically incorrect sentence I have ever written, yay!).
