Proof that I'm not a good writer

I got an ice pop out of the freezer and put it on my desk while I typed up a suggestion for LJ in the suggestions community. Once I was finally satisfied with the wording and submitted, I looked over at my ice pop and it was melted. :(

I put it back in the freezer to refreeze it and got another one for the time being.

Nah, that's not proof you're not a good writer. It's just proof that ice pops should be eaten right away :-D

Well, it's proof it takes me quite a while to get the wording of anything right.

I did get a slightly twisted ice pop today though because of it. :)

I tend to re-write anything I post that's longer than a couple of sentences - to get the wording right, to clear up possible misunderstandings, to clear up errors that are left over from previous edits... I tend to view that as a good thing :)

I think the best thing about communicating via writing is that you can re-read what you're saying and edit it before anyone else sees it!

Yeah, I see it as a good thing too, but it bugs me how many times I end up having to rewrite some things, especially if someone still misunderstands it.

In fact, for the "An ordered list of problems/issues involved" field in my suggestion, I put "Thought up by someone who has a habit of not explaining things well the first time".

Blurb

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...
