"You can't feel on top of the world, with the weight of the world on your shoulders."

Okay so I haven't edited this up until today so here goes nothing (I hope). 

I feel like I'm signing my life away in what I write here. As though the few words that I can come up with to describe myself will define who I am in this world. I guess I just never really figured out who I am, I have an opinion of myself, but all I am is a manifestation of what other people think of me. 

I am a frenzy of mental illnesses and as hard as I try to think of myself as someone other than that mentally ill kid, it's hard. So I'm going to challenge myself right now and write a few things about myself that have nothing to do with my disorders. 

I am a professional magician who is very wary about giving away my real name on the Internet. I love watching anime and sitcoms, but when it comes to movies, I'm all about horror. I struggle to consider myself a poet, despite the fact that by definition a poet is someone who composes poetry. I think this is mostly because no matter what people say about my writing, I read a lot of poems and will always compare mine to people who have dedicated their lives to writing. I know that's not fair to myself, but that's where my mind goes. Despite all that, I love to write, it's my greatest outlet for emotion. I listen to metal, like really heavy metal bands (metalcore, electronicore, emotive hardcore, melodic death metal are my favourite genres). Yes, I'm one of those people who babbles on about how pointless the lyrics of a lot of genres are, but I'm also aware that every genre has really good lyrics that are way underrated. I've been in Scouting my whole life (I'm in Canada so it's not boy scouts, it's just scouts, as it is in most countries). I read tarot. I read palms. I do dream interpretations. I practise Reiki. I am very open to different people's identities, be that gender, sexuality, ethnicity, culture, religion, however, I, myself, am your average binary, white, atheist, female... so not that interesting... however I get really into my belief systems so I know a lot about different religions and why I don't believe in them, and I am very proud of my concept of creation. You don't have to agree with my beliefs, but I'd like you to respect them as I will yours.
