    I'm worried no one can take me seriously

    First impressions people get from me are either

    1. Insane
    2. Fun
    3. Polite In An Odd Way

    I am growing to realize that I am so off in the head all the time that I think that no one can take me seriously, confessions, serious moments, serious conversations, anything.... it's all disregarded. I try and be honest and polite, but I feel a lot of it get's blown of because five minutes before I was dancing around, or babbling "Yeah, and Gatts went all nutso and went swingy swingy and smash smash bloody bloody and then ironed clothes on that thing. Onizuka, Fujirakawa, Uchiyamada!". I can't help it, and I overanalyze everything. Maybe I'm insecure.....

    I pitchshift from reallllly happy to misreable

    I'm innocuous..... I never wanted to be feared, but.... that's what I think the natural reaction would be. It's nice to be disarming though.

    Anyway, can any of you tell when I'm serious?

    Basically, the only time I know you're 100% serious is when you say "OK, this is serious" or something along those lines.

    But that's okay, because then I REALLY take the time to read your posts word for word.

    Yeah, if I try really hard and say "I am not kidding, I am dead serious" and use my judgement face, it works about 35% of the time.

    Anyalyzation, potential situations, interpretation of reactions

    Sometime's I wish i was just another stupid animal in a sports jerey and a backwards ball hat, shotgunning beer and dying inside

    You have to realize that you have quite an imagination and you're known around these parts for your off the wall posts. On top of that, it's the internet, and it's difficult to convey emotions through text.

    That said, I would hope that I can differentiate between serious RJ and not-so-serious RJ. Most of my posts are light-hearted, even if I am being completely serious, so I hope that my lame attempts at humor weren't part of the cause for all this.

    I think part of the joking lately is that you've gone from being the infamous RJ of U7 to being in love and what-not, so of course you're gonna get ragged on from other members, myself included. It's all in fun.

    Well, I have started on my diet again....

    ...but yeah, that's me, scarred and bleeding, coughing up blood clots with a cigarette in my mouth, strapped with more weapons that your average policemen, taking what's coming, hoping only that I can ultimately die for something noble, saving something inncocent a prescious, my last staggered breaths coming out of smoking bullet holes with glass in my scalp, justice done, and my last vision being of what I died for, a smile, a life, a soul....

    ...or you know, heart attack in the bathroom, whatever

    It's more my fault than anything. Take the metaphorical whimsey hammer I am always swinging, anda life full of metaphorical life nails, carry that along until you find a situation that can not be solved with that hammer, and when you reach for your other resources, they are not there or not effective

    I mean, how long can you mistake lovestruck for RJ's natural state?

    I'm really making too much of this, I really only have a vauge confirmation of friendship to stack besides complete and utter infatuation

    I just hope, beyond anything, that it doesn't turn south

    I feel sorry for anyone who comes in contact with me for months after, if I am even still sane or alive

    I think we've all been there (the lovestruck thing I mean), at least I know I have. Be careful with that.

    i've been there too man. just met up with a new girl a couple weeks ago, but unlike the others i've dated, she's very shy. this makes her personality hard to read, and i cant tell what she's thinking like i have been able to in the past. it bugs the hell out of me.

    on a lighter note, she couldnt get her car to start yesterday. dead battery. hook the jumper cables up, and it cranks, but wont fire. check for spark, got spark. get in car, engage ignition switch, pump accelerator twice while cranking, car fires. me - sense of accomplishment, as i didnt have any idea what the problem may be nor any real tools to fix it, but i got the car running. her - oh my, he's good. :D

    look for little things that make her smile, do things to let her know you're not just that kid in the sports jersey with the backwards hat. there's plenty of them out there, and only a few of us.

    I like the idea of saying " hey, this is serious ".. that should at least get people to listen to you more intently.. if they want to.

    Beyond that, we actually teach people how to respond to us. If you want reactions to change, use different words and put out different signals.

    It's not up to our audience to modify how they take us. it all starts from within.

    I say, quit worrying so much. If your whimsical artistic nature masks a moody intense person that you or other people would rather not deal with, be thankful.

    I know people who WISH they had a mask and means of self protection like you have.

    Tom
