I just needed to give a little rant, here, at the moment.
Alright, I'm a flake, I know this. It's in my artistic/poetic nature. I'm absent-minded, self-absorbed, flighty, and all of those other wonderful traits that come with being of artistic temperament.
I think I make all of this rather obvious to the world around me, but I still am always getting myself into trouble with it. People assume that they've done something wrong, or you're being a jerk, or you don't pay attention to them.
Is it something specific about me or the fact that I'm usually so attentive and compassionate, or is it in our narcissistic human nature to assume that everything that goes wrong was done intentionally against us?
Maybe my attention to odd little details, or the fact that I get sucked into things is a blend of my artistic nature and doing too much Acid when I was younger, who knows? I do know that it allows me to create, but alienates me from the outside world. Maybe I should just staple a note onto my forehead that reads: I'm an artistic flake, don't mind me!
Well, that's my rant for the day. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and if you didn't, well then why the hell did you read this far anyway!?
"huh? what? oh, i'm sorry. could you repeat what you just said? i missed it all, i was watching your face melt...."
