What is WRONG with me?!

Okay, you see, my SAT is tomorrow and I have been practicing essay prompts with pathvain_aelien. I was originally going to use an example from The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck to support my thesis in today's essay, but then when I got to the paragraph I was going to talk about it in, I said "In The Good Earth..." and then talked about The Lord of the Flies by William Golding as if I were absolutely sure Buck and Golding made an agreement to switch their names and the names of their books. Good thing I noticed it before time ran out...

WHAT THE BEAT COPING GNAT WAS I THINKING?!?!

Anycattlenotingway, here's the obligatory quiz:

You are not really Geeky!

You may like a few things that are geeky, but overall you aren’t really much of a geek.


Oh yeah? Well, I know the last digit of pi! It's...uh...green.

Just remember to keep breathing :)

Good luck!

Keep breathing? What does that have to do with anything?

And you wished me good luck after the SAT started. But fortunately, before it ended.

My timing's never been that good :-p

When I'm stressed, my breathing gets shallow and I can't think as well. If I can remember to breathe slowly and deeply, my brain gets more oxygen, I think better, and often start to feel less stressed too. When I'm really focused on something and concentrating, I actually hold my breath unconsciously and generally get a headache unless I remember to breathe.

Kinda weird, I know, but it seems to happen to other people too. In yoga class, the teachers are always reminding people to breathe because a lot of people tend to hold their breath while doing difficult poses.

I am sure. And it's over for another year anyway!

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...
