    Freaking hell yeah. But it seems

    so wrong for so many pple. Is it a crime not to not be serious about things? Esp when ur an adult and had ur fun when ur younger. As life goes on, you learn. What I learnt, changed me into a more serious person. Factual. Hais. Why it seems so wrong for many????

    Especially things like politics.

    We got onto a debate about it last night and it was getting pretty heated so my friend made a joke about it, but me not realising that it was meant to be humorous, took it serious and continued. I probably pissed them all off :( It's a trait I really hate about myself! I'm...

    Sometimes when I go through a situation,

    I like to run it by a friend to see how they would react, or how they would have handled themselves. Or if I'm asking for advice in general or making observations about something that really happens people brush it off, and I get told to stop asking serious questions. Those seem...

    Like Music.

    I think most of the time my sense of humor is okay. A little off at times, maybe, but still okay. I just never understood how people can make fun of music. I hate it when someone transforms a song meaningful to me into, let's say, a ska version (used to know someone who did it...

    But This Is Serious, By Golly! (a Work In Progress)

    This one is going to have to be a work-in-progess. I need to collect my thoughts into something coherent, rather than just sit here, ranting "Yes I do!  Yes I do!  Yes I do!"The short version, for now, is that I've usually taken everything that happens around me too seriously...

    No Not Me!

    What's funny is most people probably wouldn't think this about me.  But I can get my feelings hurt pretty easily, and I tend to be serious about my feelings, so it's a set up for disaster.  But mostly I'm pretty happy go lucky and try to let things roll off.  But...

    ...Okey Dokey...

    So sometimes I get way to frustrated. Sometimes when I have a bad day and everything seems to be going wrong I get really frustrated. I want to be left alone. Even when someone talks to me just to say hi, I want them to ignore them. Kinda like a built in rage. It sux. This...

    I Don't Think I'm So Even Keel.....

    ....as many might think. I take everything I do seriously.  From my art, to my work, to my social interactions, everything I have to be the best at, and it sucks.  I bust my *** day in and day out trying to be the best I can be, but still, to...
