@Hotaru congratulations! I enjoy your novelesque rants ; it's good to know there are others who can just tear open a vein and bleed onto the page as need be. I haven't known you that long, but dammit all if I can't relate to you in many ways. What a coincidence, too, I've *just* decided to stop putting off reading The Sandman series by Gaiman. I will have to pick your brain more on graphic novels and, of course, anime.
And a big fat yes to Valkyria Chronicles, of course!
I didn't vote, but no, that wouldn't make me question it if I had. I love your style; it's more direct and honest than most you'll find.What kinds of jobs have you had?
Errr... this is the question that'll make you question your voting, if you made it this far without wishing to rip out your own brains. I'll be blunt about it, I never had a 'real' job and my mother always used blackmailing, abuse and manipulation to make sure I didn't although I defied her and often went for quick fixes like working occasionally in various projects. While my grades where sky high when I showed up to take tests, I circled through many college majors because I could never choose a single thing as I wanted it all, I wanted something combining every single passion I have.
I was always easily drained as well, as much as I can push myself well, so I always made sure to fix my own routines that made me comfortable and to learn the way I found most structured and efficient, mostly on my own, mostly in a creative way. I miss the academic life and yet I don't, sometimes I want to work at something I love right away, others I just want to eternally learn. As I'm considering applying to colleges, I'll find a way but it's tough, it really is.
