Well, this was surprisingly fun...

Not too surprising. I mean, it's mostly people I have trouble with, not objective facts - my memory may be a little wonky, but I'm usually pretty good with events which actually took place and such. So, I have an okay relationship with reality as not related to other people. Or myself. Good to know ^_^

Music is a wondrous thing
I've fallen head over heels for the song 'Angel' by 8mm. It's something I picked up from somebody on the on the net, stashed, then finally took out and listened to, and now I keep humming bits without noticing. I have a list somewhere, of songs that I just loved the first time I heard them...

cut for lyrics...Collapse )

Daemon quiz
Because it's just too embarassing to follow trends, I like to do things waaaaay after everybody else has stopped.

It sounds pretty close, actually, though I suspect 'reasonably confident' is overestimating me.

Your Score: Independent Soul.

You scored -17 Extroversion, 8 Sensitivity, and -2 Openness!

You are calm and logical, but not unemotional. You are an introvert, at heart, preferring to read alone than be subjected to the crush and noise of a big party or bar. You have a few friends and family, whose presence you welcome - to a point. Even they can wear on your nerves eventually, and you need to retreat back into your personal space for a while so you can recharge. Your energy comes in bursts, after which you need a long nap or a couple of evenings at home to recuperate.

You are comfortable with yourself, and reasonably confident. You want the friendship and goodwill of others, but you are not willing to sacrifice your principles in order to get it. If your close friends need something that you can provide, however, you will be the first to offer it.

You are a good and sympathetic listener, and are aware of your friend's emotional states. With your very close friends, you will open up, but rarely - you don't like to burden people with your problems. At the same time, though, you are honest and are not willing to alter the truth for the sake of convenience. Among strangers you are reserved, and may resort to making jokes to disguise your true feelings.

While you are not afraid of conflict, you do not seek it, either. When you are hurt or insulted, you feel that you have a choice to make. You can choose to take the up on it and defend yourself, or you can let it pass. Your decision may depend on how well you know the person, how personally you take the insult, or simply what mood you are in that day. Your friends may not always know how you are going to react, for that reason. Whatever you reaction, though, you will be logical, rational and unnervingly accurate: a measured strike.

Your daemon's form would represent your calm, introverted nature, your cool logic, and your impatience with crowds of people. He or she would probably whisper ironic comments in your ear, give logical advice and try to hide his or her soft side from everyone, even you.

Suggested forms: Peregrine Falcon, Snowy Owl, Snow Leopard, Siberian Tiger, Osprey.

Okay, so I'm easy (but not cheap ^_^), and of all the ones I've actually read, I loved most of them. What can I say, they picked the good ones. Interview with the Vampire & Harry Potter were good, but I didn't fall for them the way I do anything Ursula LeGuin writes. (It's kinda sad, but I'll read *anything* she's written, be it novels, essays, or her version of the Tao Te Ching. And I'll like it, too.) I've read other things by some of the other authors, which I liked. Ah, well, reading list, cool.

LiveJournal, Yay!
Well, I have a LiveJournal. I actually did this so that I'd finally get around to typing up and posting all the stuff I've got scribbled on random bits of paper, but this may take some time. Also, I'm really lazy. At any rate, I go back to Uni on Monday, so I don't even know why I started this now, and not at the beginning of the holidays, but hey. This is me joining LiveJournal, so please look after me :)
