Teacher: You know, you're on a whole different level than everyone else here.
Me: I know, and it frustrates me.

Kala: I think it's very important for the person to be able to look at something from under the surface level. And I'm not talking just about looks. I mean like when you first listen to a song, and even if you dont really like or care for it, you continue to listen just because you believe that basing your opinion on it on that first experience isn't just enough/right.
I think like this a lot, so this is important. People my age (teenagers) don't really think like this, so I'm not really into looking for a boyfriend or whatever. My age group's mentality of bf/gf is "Aww this person makes me happy and I'm happy with this person so I like them!" Of course I wouldn't want to be sad/frustrated with the person I'm with, but there's so much more to understand than just your feelings. There are things like how they interpret the world, how they react to situations, and how much they are compatible/compliment with your own personality.
I also like being open to new and different things, so that element is a must, though not necessarily being the most accepting person in the world who loves everything and everyone.
Everything else is pretty much just the extra icing on top, and I won't try to be picky about it. (Though it would nice to have someone to share my culture, art-related, and video game experiences with!)
I've never had a bf, and have never really cared for it, because I'm not all totally srs about finding someone or tried to look hard or yearned for one or felt empty inside 'cause I didn't have one or other cliche 'love' stuff etc. When the time comes, it'll come.
Stranger: You have more wisdom than your years show. You will be prepared and know what you want very well when the time comes, just do not be surprised when you have a hard time finding someone who electrifies your mind with thoughts as stimulating as your own, and able to set your heart ablaze with the passion that resides within their own.
I find it very humorous that most people who posted who are of age (18-2x) posted 2-4 sentences, and if their post was longer still didn't manage to say anything as decisive, intelligent or meaningful as you.
Kala: Why thank you. Your reply makes me happy! (:
I don't show what I'm thinking most of the time, so when I do share my thoughts people either look at me like "Wtf are you talking about" or either say "You're a lot more mature than you look." Usually the former are my teenage peers and the latter are older people I happen to be talking to. But that's just probably 'cause I don't act like the type of person to think like this, haha.
While I am in some ways preparing my heart for when 'love' does come, I know that it won't suddenly be rainbows and unicorns, and pain will be inevitable in some shape or form. I just like to keep the idea that although difficult to do, it's good to focus on the positive. Life's not perfect, but that's okay. I'll get through.
Stranger: I don't if I would say you can prepare for love. Basically it's not possible. But I would say you are as close as you can be. Feel free to quote me, especially on this next part. One can not love another until one has learned to loved themselves; and while it is possible to love yourself without intimate knowledge of oneself, usually that task is impossible until one is able to look inside oneself honestly and discern not only their true motivations, but the factors that underlie them.
Kala: Yeah, that's basically what I meant. Trying to, but know I can't really.
That is some very good advice. I'll be sure to remember it. : )
Stranger: I apologize for telling you something you already know then. :)
Kala: Not a problem at all, thank you for allowing me to engage in such a enjoyable conversation. :)
Haha, lots of smilies, but that's what you did, make me smile! I sure did appreciate it.
Stranger: You are very welcome my dear. I'd be happy to oblige you any time. One of the cornerstones of humanity is communication, if we were unable to communicate with another of similar understanding; a large portion of our humanity would slowly wither away a die. It is a terrible thing to lose ones sanity, even more terrible when its decline is slow enough that we can grasp the loss and glimpse the road ahead.
I am very glad that I was able to shower your life with some light doll face. ;)
Kala: Gosh, you're like a quote machine, haha. Such great writing.
Thanks again : )
Stranger: You are very gracious and kind.
Likes of 2009 - Doing this made me wish Tumblr put...
(Hey, it’s still January, isn’t it? So I can still write something about New Years, right?) So I thought, hey it’s ‘New Years’, why don’t I post all the Likes I did in 2009? I think it’d be a nice cool tradition to do. (Oh, please no fads. Let’s be original here!) I post interesting things on Facebook and rarely on Tumblr, but the things I Like I...
