What else did I do today? Watched Law and Order, Charmed, and Dead Like Me. Played with my cat, Paint. Plotted to stage a protest outside my adviser's door since he won't/hasn't returned my phone calls. Read fanfiction. And gotten my information together to put in an application for the temporary work pool. I'm forgetting something. Ah, went out to dinner with my friends and reminised about cheesecake we had in Canada. :P
*sigh* Been thinking a lot today too. Which is never good, unless I'm on a creative bent.
I've never been good at the things that are supposed to boost people's confidence: sports, music, grades, etc. I mean, I'm terrible at sports. In high school I spent one day crying in the corner and half way through class someone was nice enough to ask me if I wanted to be on their team. The teacher never even asked me what was wrong, she just sent me in to the locker rooms early. Music... lets just say, while everyone else was practicing for the big concert I was in the back basically getting remidial lessons. Grades? Well, I've never been too bad with grades, but they've never really been a source of pride either.
Writing is the only thing that I've ever really been proud of. (Except for a morbid pride in my comic and anime collections respectively.) People always think I'm good at writing, but it occurred to me the other day, that a good portion of the people I know that think I write well have never read anything I've written. That was a small blow to the ego.
Most people that read my work respond nicely, and often helpfully as well.
On the bright side, I have this hideous optimistic streak in me and I'm always pretty sure everything is going to work out in the end. :)
... little blue, little blue, little blue 42!!! (Gah, it's been running through my head for a solid week now!)
Anyway, I hope everyone out there in cyber land is doing well and at least somewhat happy. :)
