Some crazed combination of old video games, 80s music videos and other nonsensical junk with one warehouse of all the information I know. Wait, that's my thoughts. The real inside of my brain would just be a grey mass.

Pretty much all of it. It's a fashion style I like, but it's too expensive in real life to afford.

I guess my art skills. People seem to know me as "that girl who draws a lot," or "that girl who always has paint up and down her arms." And I'm not very proud of much else in my life, so my ability to do artistic things is my best talent.

I think I take my own friend (who I won't name here) for granted. I met her a few years ago and at the time I didn't even like her, but we were forced together because of mutual friends. Over the years we've grown closer, and I really love her, but sometimes she's hard to be around for different reasons (we just have very different personalities). But she is one of the most honest, truly kind people I know. Recently I've gone through a breakup and she has been there for me so much, so much more than I deserve I think. I realize now that she is a much bigger part of my life than I thought before, and I appreciate her being there for me so much.

If you were going to be paid a lot of money to write an autobiography, what parts of your life would you focus most on?

Tipsy Flatterer

Well, my transition (and how I came to the conclusion that I'm trans in the first place) would be the obvious choice. But I guess I'd also concentrate on making it as a writer (which I haven't done yet, but if I were writing an autobiography, I hope I' would've been one by then...) I'd also mention my boyfriend a lot.~

If you have a job: Do you like it? Why/not?
If you don't: Which would be your ultimate job, and why?

Questionable Cat

This might turn into a bit of a rant.

I have a love/hate relationship with my job.
You see, I'm in the social work field. I got my bachelors in psychology, knowing I would be going into social work. No biggie. But you see, I don't live in a big city. Ohhh no. I live a bit away from a large city.

At first, I didn't think this job would be so bad, in fact it is a significant upgrade from my other job where I was an in-home care giver to some clients of this agency. I kinda got stabbed in the back multiple times from that job, they didn't take taxes out of my paycheck, I had to use my own gas to drive clients around (which didn't do much to take down the $1k I owed in taxes this year) and this one older male, hairy, client didn't wear pants. Or have air conditioning.... In Florida. Etc.

So anyways this job is more up my ally, I have over 90 mentally disabled clients that come into the program to work each day and they go to some groups every now and then (I teach one, in fact) and yadda yadda. It's busy, no day is the same, and I really do like my clients. Sure I've gotten hurt every now and then from a variety of things, and some of the work they do can be pretty dirty, but it's rewarding for them. It gives me a sense of purpose, to know that I am helping to make a difference in their life.

But then comes the pay. I make just as much as people who don't have a bachelors degree there, and all they need is a certification and then a renewal every so often. That kind of hurts. I also get made fun of by some co-workers for this. Har. Har. Har.
If I were still living from where I am originally from, I could be paid at least six dollars more an hour for a job like mine with my degree. Aha.

I am starting graduate school this fall (at least, I'm applying and I am really, really hoping I get in) for my masters in social work and then looking to move back to where I am from.

Oh look, that did turn into a rant.

What are some of the things that you look for in a significant other?

Dedicated Spirit

He has to be fun and cute and has to like Disney. 4laugh heart

But in all seriousness, besides just being funny and overall being a good person, dependability is an attractive trait.
Can he take care of himself? Can he take care of me?
It's a trait that's recently become more important to me as an adult.
I'm still so immature. sweatdrop

I am on good terms with my mother, but I am on unresolved terms with my father. I find him to be abhorrent and a jerk face now.

I don't really like Poinsettias. I've just never really found them that beautiful, and they're around everywhere during the holidays. They make me miss certain people as well.

What is/was your current/most recent relationship like?
Jaydoggy's avatar

Eloquent Friend

The short answer is I am a contentedly single man. I am a gay yet asexual man. I am not actively seeking. I have gone on dates, and they went nowhere. I've only had one true relationship, and it was an unusual one. We've only crossed paths IRL once. Beyond that, it's entirely been long distance. I realized it was not a way to continue. We had lives to make of ourselves, and we had no way to be together. We peacefully separated years ago, but we remain very dear distant friends. I do not expect a relationship again.

There's more to this answer but I will spare the eyes 3nodding

It was at my cousin's graduation ceremony with her and my mom. I was following her and I was trying to help her out of the room since her leg was in a brace. Her mother came by and hugged her a lot. My mom wanted to leave the room and avoid drama when her mother tried to pull her to talk to her grandfather. I tried to politely tell her that we had an dinner appointment since I thought it would get her off my cousin's back and she said, "Oh shut up , you are already retarded."

I didn't hit her, or call her something back. I gently placed my hand on my cousin's back and flipped off her mother. Then when I heard something from her AGAIN, I raised the bird higher. It's the incident that's kindling my desire to change my last name.

That, and another incident where my dad bullies my cousin's brother, but that's a story for another time.


Is there a relative you absolutely hate being around?

Interesting Seeker

My mom's oldest brother. He's a verbally abusive a*****e who screwed up my cousin emotionally, cheated on his wife of 25+ years, bullied my mom as kids, and is generally an unpleasant person to be around.


What's one thing you hope to accomplish this summer?

O.G. Noob

Hopefully get a job, preferably a permenant job, I'm sick of feeling useless like I'm just a drain on society and that nobody wants me and that my skills are frankly non existant, i'd like a job so that I'm actually doing something.

What subject do you find the most interesting? (poltics, history, music etc)

History. Particularly the Tudor Era. I have a huge thing for Henry the Eighth.

If you had to choose one country to spend the rest of your life in, which would it be and why?
