Writer's Block: A stroll down memory lane

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
I'd rather lose all of my old memories, because they all distract me from everything and most of them are things I regret.

I also have lots of crappy memories. I would rather lose my old ones than be unable to make new ones. Even if most of my old memories were positive (hah!), being unable to form NEW memories would seriously impede my ability to function far more than even losing all my old ones would.

I'm thinking of this guy who was a real dude unable to form new (episodic) memories. He ended up living in a mental institution type of place and couldn't have a normal life because of his disordered memory capabilities.

I would love to get rid of my old memories. Maybe I wouldn't be such a crazy person! I regret a lot in my past too. I know you're supposed to live without regret... But I have made too many bad decisions to not regret them. I'd love to start over!

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...
