( Collapse )Day 01 - Introduce yourself (in great detail)
Yoha broha. I'm Alex, 19 years old. I'll be 20 years old in 15 days. Emphasis on OLD. I like to go out and hang out with friends and celebrate my ~youth but the best way to describe me is a grumpy old lady. I can be grouchy, I can be mean, and sometimes I will say things with the intention of getting a rise out of you, even if it's something small. I don't do it to be a dick, it just kind of happens and I suppose it's just an inherent boredom in me, which makes me have to press other's buttons.
But really I consider myself pretty chill. I like meeting people, but at the same time I am shy as all hell. So I tend to stick to being quiet unless I really know you. But even that depends on my mood. I can be loud and obnoxious, silent and withdrawn all at the turn of a hat. I'm basically a contradiction as I do certain things one day and do the complete opposite another depending on my mood. But even with my tendency to flip flop to keep things... interesting for myself? I hate change, and don't take to it very well. I worry too much for my own health and tend to freak out the moment something doesn't go as I planned.
A lot of people basically describe me as pretty tsundere, which I guess is true. I hate showing weaknesses, and I like to act huffy and mean even when I don't mean it. The more I care about you, the worse I treat you, but always within reason. I am always there to listen to people when they are upset, and nothing makes me feel better than protecting others. I have a soft spot for smaller, weaker people, and tend to take them under my wing. I'm not altruistic, but I AM protective, to the point that I would get into fights to protect people I care about. I tend to be the big sister people never had (even if I am sometimes younger than them).
I am also pretty sensitive and tend not to take jokes very well but I don't let it show that I am upset. And as grumpy as I am, I rarely snap at people because I don't like causing problems with people I care about. I like violence, and fighting, and being the big guy but I am really into having a balance and a steady relationship with people. Causing people I know to dislike me causes change, and like I said, I cannot deal with it, so I don't like people dropping me out of their life.
But at the same time I can be pretty apathetic. I tend to worry until i realize I don't give a shit, and drop people like flies when I decide they aren't worth the effort. Like I said, contradiction. Still, I am a totally cool bro, I swear!!
I love trolling people though. Pushing buttons, etc etc. Most people can tell when I'm being serious or not. Most people are intimidated when they first meet me for some reason??
I am on my third year at NYU and don't know what to do with myself. I am majoring in TV writing and want to minor in Italian so that I can teach it one day. This all seems like a big life plan but ehhhh, I don't know how successful I will be out of college so we'll... see or something.
I also like comic books, and sci fi shows, and webcomics, and nerdy things like that and I am not ashamed to say that I can be a huge dork a lot of the time.
SO that's me!!!! or something. idk. I am gonna keep this public for a bit, I guess.
Also did a late night cut of dead journals but if I accidentally cut you SORRY BRO. Tell me here.
I am excited for Katsucon due to DRUNKEN HOMESTUCK TROLL PARTYING
. I dunno if I want to be Karkat, Sollux, or Eridan. All my loves.
