quotes from 17-year-old me that are fucking spot-on and haven’t changed:
-I am often unsatisfied and uncomfortable during/after human interaction. I feel like I’m wasting people’s time by being near them.
-I feel like the people who call me interesting haven’t spent enough time around me.
-I feel like everyone in the world should be interesting to me but because of some invisible variables, very few people are.
-Before I begin writing a story [2014 edit: writing anything], I assume it will be an enjoyable experience. It never is, and I always dislike the final product, but I’m also proud of it for some reason.
-I wish that when I drew complex mentally challenging things I could avoid purpose.
-I always have a vague explosive philosophical concept deep within my brain and everything I write is an attempt to make it less vague but I have never been able to bring it any closer to the top and I’m afraid I’ll keep making copies of copies until I die without ever knowing what this incredible “thing” is.
