Other Mindless Obsessions: torturing myself by looking at the blood tag; looking in the mirror, hating what I see and still doing nothing about it (until now, huzzah!); using those what I think are cute emoticons like ˆ·ˆ; pretending that people like me; pretending that I like people; craving youth like the queen in snow white; being kinda insane.
This about me has nothing to do with me, it’s just the things I do and the people I like. It doesn’t capture the ‘essence’, then again I don’t know who I am. Are the things you do and the people you like what makes a person who they are?
I hope not.
