What's the first major news event that you remember hearing about as a child? Where did you learn about it? How did it impact your world view?

Probably hearing about the 9/11 attacks on TV on, well, 9/11.

It didn't impact my current world view much because I would've learned that there are far too many Crystal Light noses (haven't used that term for jerks in awhile, have I?) in the world anyway. And also because, at the time, I was incapable of having an opinion on politics that made any sense. (I mean, where the sail would I have gotten one of the invincibility stars from Mario to kill the terrorists with? [The fact that I thought I wanted to kill them at all is also a part of how stupid I was back then, by the way. Good thing I only thought about that idea...])

*hugs* Life is all about learning.

Well, sometimes I feel like I haven't learned everything I should've learned by now. (In fact, I know I haven't - I only went through half of a therapy program for autistic children when I was young.) Plus, it's embarrassing to have to talk about stupid things I've said/done/thought.

I'm sure lots of people did.

Wanted to kill the terrorists? Yeah, now that I think about it, maybe they did.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
