I also get offended when people try to peg me, but only because I want to be pegged in the center, and they always try to peg me at some far right/far left extreme. Of all the people who have tried to peg me, only about one or two have had very good aim, and I think that was just luck, not any particular pegging skill.

Yeah, thanks whoever did that. A very nice change. I owe you one.

Confession: I want a job far more than I should. It would actually be the best thing ever to happen to me if I could gt the job that I applied for. Stacking shelves in a supermarket. I am ridiculously under qualified.

underqualified for stacking shelves, what are you? Quadrapelegic?(sp?)
I've found that for such jobs, having no hopes, no dreams of a future and no qualifications for another job, gets you the job. They want the bastard that can stay there, content, for the rest of thier lives, so when they ask about your ambitions, you go "oh i don't know, i think i might study something some day, maybe on half time or something...." And not "I'M A SCIENTIST AT HEART!"

No, I meant I am ridiculously under qualified for anything else. And I am that bastard. I fully expect to be stacking shelves for the next 5 years, so that I have time and energy to write.

Confession: I haven't written anything in months. I really need to get on to that.

I was all "O hey the Confessional thread" and then I was all "lol fora crushes" and then I was all "wait wut now?". And then I was all "eh? rachel? WAIT WHAT ARE YOU SAYING WHICH ONE OF US COULD DO BETTER."

Yeah. Three in the morning, guys. -_- Not... the best time... for deep thinking...

What the - You people *like* me? Weird. And here I thought I was the obnoxious emo brat of the fora, tolerated for being occasionally funny. Either I have a wildly unrealistic self-perception or y'all need to be better judges of character. It's probably the latter. Come on, people! Discriminate judiciously. Someone once asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said "One of the homeless insane"; my New Year's resolution was to "drink more"; clearly I am not a very good role model. Goddamnit people! How am I supposed to wallow in self-loathing angst when y'all keep *liking* me? Quit challenging my opinion of myself. Damn it.

Fossa et al: XD Well, at least you aren't fora-crushing on Belial (like me). That would demonstrate a remarkable dearth of survival instincts (like me!). Go ahead and search my posting history; I've probably said a couple of really funny things in my time, none of which immediately spring to mind. Just don't, like, do anything too creepy. Yeah. God I'm sleepy. G'night.

I was deeply confused by the comment about doing better.

@f_s: As has been said, your whiny emo angst is nothing like Norma Normalson. You are, therefore, made of awesome, win, and several tonnes of armaments. And we like you for more than being different, to boot.

I too have my own problems, but I am getting over them. I have way too high standards for women, I think too analytically, I always wonder about how I am perceived through other people's eyes, I think I suck at everything I do, although what I do should prove otherwise. I also am moderately depressed, and have been since 2nd grade. I am so mixed up I can't hold on to a ridiculously awesome idea for more than 2 seconds in my brain, even though my passions are english, psychology, and philosophy (besides outdoor activities). I think I think way more than anyone at my school

That's ... a lot of sodium? ... congrats? Seriously, that's pretty intense man.

In other news, I have an overload of bottomless thought and nowhere particularly interesting to direct it. Bugger. I suppose I could always do my homework... but I'm too contrary and I'd rather waste it writing shoddy romance fanfiction about gay ninja falling in love with each other. And killing things. And making buildings explode. Things like that. Woohoo! Party in mah brain!

Confession: I think I might have Seasonal Affective Disorder. Which would suck. Because it has such a groaningly, sickeningly pun-like acronym. And I hate puns with a passion. Grrrrr. Plus, I'm kind of sick of tacking on *more* disorders to Ye Olde List. I'm *weird*, I'm *different*, I have things wrong with me, and science doesn't have a word to describe it, so I have to make do with "well it's sort of a combination of OCD, ODD, SAD, DID, depression, walnuts, anorexia, pyromania, gender dysmorphia, chronic insomnia, chronic fatigue, hypotension, anemia, and being completely loony only not really like that at all". Rargh! Stupid fucking DSM-IV. It's like going shopping for disorders. I fit the criteria for EVERYTHING FOREVER. Either I am not on enough medications (happy shiny pills in lots of pretty colors make the f_s feel all funny in the head!) or all of these weird little curios are merely symptoms of something deeper. I'm betting it's the latter.

Ah, hell, who am I kidding? My very existence is a ridiculous anomaly in the universe's paradigm. It's hardly surprising that I'm a tad bit eccentric. No need to worry. It'll all come out in the wash in another eighty years or so. Death is the massive product recall of the gods, after all. (I don't think they'll be manufacturing any more of me. I'm a very faulty product line.) Hooray for existing! It's quite neat, really, when you look at it. And I'm glad I'm able to take part. Anything further - mental illness, college applications, job interviews, computers breaking - is extraneous icing on my little reality-cake. I should not make such a fuss. I am actually a very grateful little creature.

tl;dr: I love you all very much, you fora people, you. Virtual hugs all around! Or virtual delicious snacks of your choice.

@f_s: You remind me eerily of a number of people. The closest match is far too serious to be you though.

As for matching the criteria of everything ever, wouldn't that suggest a type of confirmation bias?

And, I agree, there is generally a root cause. It's the classic case of the infected toe.

Person with infected toe limps, which throws their back out of alignment (eventually), which causes some breathing problems, and leads to headaches and yet further symptoms.

And, you're more outlier than anomaly, as everyone is an anomaly (which makes everyone normal), and what is normal is the average sum. Those that are especially odd are naturally outliers from this equation.

You could always call it by the more honest name that Jeffery Rowland gives it: Winter Sadness Disorder. (there are only two comics so far, maybe the links seem all wonky. Sorry.
Maybe it'd help if you also killed yourself through sodium! I'm a trend setter!!
I have nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.
And some old pictures.

:D Perhaps the person I remind you most of is really my evil twin? Because I *really* want an evil twin. Hell, I could be *their* evil twin. Just as long as we're twins. Cause that would be just the coolest thing *ever*.

X3 Everything forever... well, okay, perhaps I exaggerate a tad. Merely a tad, mind you!

Plus: Overcompensating is one of my favorite webcomics *already*. No need to rec me, dude, I am *so* already there. :D

I was simply going to confess that I enjoy plain instrumental music and that looking at the Best Outro thread made me want to say that I like Jake Shimabukuro's music, but now I feel like I should wax profound or something...

Which I won't do, since most of my thoughts in that direction of introspection were spawned by an earth-devouring, soul-destroying rage at a younger age, and revisiting them means skirting the void that keeps my narrowly dancing on my razorblades over the infernos of insanity.

I hope the earth's best for you two, even though I don't know you personally. I enjoy the company, virtually or physically, of intelligent people, and like tiny candles spread thinly in the gulf of space, it is wonderful to see brief, flickering light originating from some other source...

why the fuck am I being poetic? /out.
If I say that this is left purposely blank, then the statement contradicts the reality, which is that the sig space was not left blank, but had the words 'This space left purposely blank' in it.

Hey, I know that dance! It's a pretty fun dance once you learn it but it looks really complicated when you see it for the first time, what with all the swinging and the high kicks. Plus it's not really something anyone can teach you; I mean some of the moves, sure, but to really *get* it you've gotta figure it out on your own. Which sucks ass, but it's also what makes that particular dance so cool.

Earth might not be the best place for me, but I'm here anyway, so I might as well throw a party.
