This article was written over seven years ago. The past seven years of my life would've been SO much better if I'd known about it back then (and there was a way to use it on LJ entries and comments instead, or someone made a similar system for checking those)!

Interesting. But you have been doing fine on your own, even if you don't think so. :)

Maybe I have been now, but I wasn't when this article was written (which was published on July 26, 2010 - over a year before the Forbidden Comment Threads and a mere day or two after I offended a bunch of people in suggestions, for starters).

For a while (in 2010-2013 most likely), I'd been wanting to write a program that would analyze an entry or comment before I post it and predict how likely I am to regret it (based on similarities to previous entries/comments that I either did or didn't regret), but I never started it because I didn't have a lot of free time and I only had a really vague idea of where to start. I'm glad someone else apparently made the same thing, even if it was years ago and for emails instead of LJ posts. :)

You were then, too. Everyone regrets things they've said, all the time.

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...
