I have a few admissions.

First of all, I like synthesizers. Yes, that's right. I think they sound cool.
I also enjoy Coldplay.

I like watching Degrassi and Drake and Josh.

I read (and sometimes write) online porn.

I like pretty boys making out with other pretty boys. I'm shallow like that.

I'm so very gay. Sorry Mom.

I love anime, and probably always will, even if it's not cool anymore.

I don't follow fads. I do whatever the hell I want to.

I can be a real asshole. But I try not to be.

I collect My Little Ponies and Barbies. What, it's cool for boys to like them, but not girls?

I have dreams about Yu Yu Hakusho (one included Hiei in a wooden cage and Yukina dropping bombs on goblins from a helicopter).

I'm a hopeless romantic.

If I like something, it's because it appeals to my unique tastes. It has nothing to do with who else likes it. Errm... that was basically the same as the fad thing. -shrugs-

I love the Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings!

Yes, I take many liberties when it comes to my novels. But hell, I write fantasy novels. There's no wrong way to write a fantasy novel. Demons don't have to be ugly, angels don't have to be pretty, and men can look like women. 'Cause I said so. So bite me.

I was once a small child, and I was quite annoying.

I have lots of issues. I should probably seek professional help with some of them, but I can't get my parents to take me seriously, despite my multiple breakdowns, and honestly, who wants to bother with it all?

I'm using this journal as... therapy. Muahaha.

I like to do the happy dance. -does the happy dance-

Hiei and Kurama are my OTP.

I only recently found out what OTP stands for.

I am very sheltered, and most modern day sexual slang goes right over my head. Hopefully that will change now that I'm in college.

I think alcohol is nasty.

I often go on random rants.

I cannot cook, and thus I expect the other members of my family to do it for me. Thus, I often go without meals.

I am very, very lazy.

I think faeries are real.

It's a lot easier to hurt my feelings than most people think. I don't know how many people realize what it's like to be home schooled. I am proud of my raising and feel that I'm much better off for having my brilliant parents as my teachers, but where I come from, there's a lot of ignorance when it comes to home schooling. I get called snobbish, anti-social, stunted, all sorts of things, just because I have trouble communicating with other teens. Most of the things I've listed above are things that people have teased me for, or picked on in some way (though some are also just for fun, like the cooking one).

Let me put it this way. If you think teasing a friend, even about something small, might be making them uncomfortable, it probably is. I personally make a conscious effort not to tease my friends, because it all adds up eventually and causes some rather unpleasant angst.

So, in short... be accepting for your friends' odd quirks.

I empathize with a LOT of that. <3

Heh, I'm debating posting this on my MySpace to let my RL friends see it. -ponders- I probably won't, though.

Wow, it's very much the same with me for a lot of that, especially teasing friends and communicating with people. I wasn't even homeschooled o.o

My being home schooled just gives them something else to tease me about, I suppose. Unfortunately, it's a very sore spot for me.

But yeah, friends can be highly inconsiderate. I get so frustrated with mine sometimes.

Wow. You're much younger than I ever, ever gave you credit for. Your fic gets extra points, LOTS OF THEM, just for having been written at your age. Plz dun kill me for saying so.;;

I say wow more than I realize.

Let's see. When I became disabled, it broke my mind.

I'm around anyway. :D

Everyone has issues -- most people don't admit to them~♥

People tend to think I'm ultra weird.

They're right.

I know this isn't a meme. I couldn't resist.

Friends -- despite the ginormous age difference?

I take no offense at that. ^-^ I've been told that on numerous occasions; I take it as a very high compliment. I'm told I'm extremely mature (my Poppy calls me an old spirit) for my age and I like to try and tackle big issues in my writing. I also have an unhealthy obsession with the human brain. 0.o

Admitting to your issues out loud helps in admitting them to yourself, I think, which is why I try to write about my own problems as much as possible. It helps me to type it out, look over it, and think "Well, Rach, all things considered, this could have been worse and you came out of it. You have this for future use now."

You and I have the weird thing very much in common. =D I find that people don't dislike weird as much as they pretend, too.

It might as well be a meme. xD Please feel free to use it as such.

I would very much love to be friends. Hi there, I'm Rachel, a 19 year old college student who still plays with dolls. ^^ It's a pleasure to meet you.

I'm Jen and at 34, not quite double your age. Considering I watch anime semi-regularly, I may be considered immature. Then again, I've watched it since I toddled in Tokyo, so... /shrugs

Not that concerned about convention as it is. XD

Ah, I, too, have and frequently do write therafic, if that's what you were referring to. I've known about you for some time, but yeah, it'll be good to get to know you. ♥

I've always thought it silly that so many people seem to consider animation as merely for children so I don't consider watching anime to be immature any more than watching regular movies or TV shows is, personally. =) Especially considering some shows, like Death Note, have really heavy messages that often require a mature mind to understand them.

Therafic - Yes, I do that on occasion. Luckily, my problems are mostly quite small and are merely mental disorders that are extremely mild. xD;;; I usually just plain out write about them in my journal, rant a bit and get it off my mind. My fics are usually heavier stuff (like Gilded Cage). That's more me trying to reach a better understanding of human mentality, since I hope to write real novels that will not only entertain a reader but also pass on a strong message. So I look at my fics as practice for that. =)

Dude, can I friend you? I just agreed with at least half of the things you said here. And besides, you're in to YYH. I love YYH friends.
Aug. 18th, 2009 03:26 pm (UTC)
Sure! =D Please feel free. <3

Hiya, I did as your profile said and friended you cos i wanna read your works as well as what you have to say. ^_^ I like your DN works a lot and if you don't mind the sight of real life pretty boys making out with each other (tho it's not /exactly/ what it looks like---but who cares, right? xD), i have a picture of a couple of them doing just that in one of my most recent blog entries so feel free to check that out.
