Explanation to those who are new here: I decided a couple of years ago that I'd start revisiting every quiz/survey I've posted on LJ five years later to see how things have changed. But then I procrastinated so long that I'm having to do some of them seven years later instead.

Old result:

I'd call it a hidden talent, since you hate doing it and agonize over it, but you are actually good at it.

Even if that's the case, it certainly didn't make sense for me to get that result back in 10th grade - back then, my essays and papers and stuff usually made no sense at all unless you helped me write them. :(

And I'm still not good at creative writing - I'm definitely not "the next Pulitzer prize winner" as that quiz says.

They were good then, too.

I suppose most of them were once I was done writing them, but back then I usually needed more help writing them. When I was in college, usually all I needed help with was motivation to work on them, but back when I was in high school, you definitely had to say way more than "sounds good, keep going" to help me with essays.

I think it was the same in high school. You could do it but you didn't have any confidence so you needed a push because you were afraid of writing. You wrote that Macbeth paper with minimal help (I just looked it over after) and it was great.

Was that before or after the Age of Reason paper? Because looking at my old entries, I had to do that Age of Reason paper around the same time that I first took that quiz.

EDIT: No wait, the Age of Reason paper was definitely before the Macbeth one. Because I don't think I had any LJ userpics back when I was complaining about having to do the Age of Reason paper, but by the time I had to do that Macbeth paper, I already had a whole text file with ideas for userpics. (I like how I can pinpoint when random things happened in my life just based on things like how many LJ userpics I had at the time ;) )

:) You've been a good writer for a long time, just not a confident one.

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...
