A public service announcement

Smiling
A little while ago, a few things were pointed out to me, and I meant to clarify this here for a while, but kept forgetting. I remembered now, so here we go.

Yes, what you read here is one sided. It is my journal, containing my opinion, with whatever bias I may or may not have. I'm not claiming any sort of journalistic ethics.

Sometimes, I will say what I think someone may think. It's what I think they think, as opposed to what they actually think. If you want to know that, ask them, not me! I try to be clear and not mis-represent them, but often, people will mis-interpret what I say as being the One True Gospel or something. For all I know, I'm completely wrong.

Combined with the previous notice about the biases that I may or may not have, if you read something about how I think some girl I like seems to like me too, you should have loud blaring alarm sirens in your head. Because, really, I'm so well known to be such a good mind reader, particularly of those people I have a crush on. Yeah, right!

I might come off as thinking I'm always right. Well, at the time where I think something, I do think I'm right, otherwise, why would I think that? Or I might come off as a "white knight in shining armor", all pure and good, doing everything right. I wish! I do my best, honestly, and in earnest, but I've made mistakes in the past, and all signs point to making mistakes in the future. I say I dislike lies and dishonesty, and it so very true, but sometimes, I catch myself being dishonest toward myself, how do you think I feel about that? So no, perfection is not to be found here, far from it. Hell is paved with good intentions, they say? No shit.

Am I a "drama queen"? I don't know. I don't like drama queens, but I've made choices in my life, for my own happiness, that makes me rather outgoing about how I feel. And here, being my journal, you get more or less the raw content. Sometimes, people worry about me when reading this, when really, it's nothing worse than most people live through their lives, it's just that I'm odd in how I'll admit feeling some things that most people will just repress or ignore. Combined with my dislike of lying and dishonesty, try asking me "how are you", it's fun!

So, how are you?

A bit relieved, after that phone interview of yesterday, but still plenty stressed with work and more job hunting...

It's just that I've decided I'd answer that without just automatically saying "I'm fine, thank you" or some other generic answer. A personal quirk. I've had a case where I went to the restaurant at the corner, I was terribly hungover, and the waitress asked me how I was, and I just answered "bad, but it'll be better", and she stared right back at me, looking rather worried... I had to tell her that it was okay, just get the damned menus already!

Yeah, answering that question with a real answer can do that to some people. I don't think most people really wanted to know.

Yeah, I know, it's mostly protocol and all... I tried to make it brief and non-detailed, but I sure as hell wasn't doing good!
