    Sometimes I think I always log in at the wrong times. lol
  3. I just realized what a closed-minded, antisocial, closed-off recluse I've been for the last few years. I like to think of myself as a curious intellectual but my attitude's akin to a hermit's. I'm feeling like s*** again.

      I dunno if you're soliciting advice, but if so--

      Try to spend less time evaluating your life, and do something concrete instead. Could include hanging out with friends, working on a hobby, or doing something that will give you an opportunity to meet new people.

      I have been trying to sublimate, doesn't change the fact that I'm self-centered and self-absorbed sometimes. I'm fine most of the time, anyway, thanks.

    Hi Everyone :)

    I think we panic when prompted for hobbies and interest because we're worried about what we're doing with our time, with our life, but it's usually just us making too big a deal of things. Young people are eager to do something significant, we're awesome like that sometimes, but it affects us such that it can be damaging to ourselves and our mental state. I may be wrong, though. Maybe it's just me and I'm overthinking things.
  5. This. Covers everything I have to say. :-)
  6. There'd be nothing wrong with that, as long as you keep everything in good taste. Not being Christian doesn't automatically make anyone or anything bad.
  7. I don't think there's anything inherently wrong or un-Christian about rock music, or any music in general. If you feel you have it in you, go for it. You don't have to worry about what more conservative Christians think because, frankly, they're not the ones you have to reach out to. It's not spreading God's message if you only give it to who already have it. Personally I wouldn't want my music too closely associated with religion, largely because only Christians listen to Christian music, and some, like me, like to cultivate a taste separate from religious beliefs. If your target audience are non-Christians, religious themes will push people away. Tact and relatability is important. Still, it's best to act decently. As for family and life on the road, even if you plan on traveling a lot on tours, you should leave plenty of time between tours to spend with family.

    What book are you reading now?

    Last thing I read was Terry Pratchett's 'Interesting Times'. Haven't read a book for a good couple days, and I'm planning on reading The Pig Plantagenet.
  9. I just made a new alphabet/writing system. I am now writing a book about one of my RPG characters. Lame?

    the World and stuff

    You know, life doesn't have to all church and prayers all the time. God is always highest priority, but nothing is stopping you to pursue other interests, hobbies, etc. if you can manage it. So long as nothing you do goes against the Word of God, and you take care not to neglect your spirit, you're fine. We are free to have a life outside of religion, indeed we are obligated to get the most out of life on earth. God want us to be happy. Besides that, when unbelievers see Christians living happily and fruitfully, they see a reason to believe, because although not everyone believes in God or eternal life in heaven, everyone wants a happy and fruitful life on earth. Therefore, you live life to the fullest not only for yourself but also for God and your fellow men. Just remember to put God above all else. Matthew 6:33 "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." (can't believe I typed all that out)

    Dungeon Crawl and/or other roguelikes?

    I know this might seem weird, a teen being into Dungeon Crawl, a roguelike, one of the oldest kinds of video games, but still. It's fun, and I've spent countless hours playing, and I've never gotten past Level 11 or Dungeon 10. Anybody else like Crawl, or just roguelikes in general?

    I keep a journal and like notebooks. IDK why. anyone else?

    Funny thing is, I don't really go to school anymore.
  13. I really like notebooks, especially unlined or leather-bound, not really sure why. Right now, I have a small unlined leather pocket notebook --filled with illegible scribblings and sketches-- that I carry everywhere, a larger leather notebook-- also unlined-- that I keep as a journal, a lined university notebook filled with first drafts, and so many others that I have no use for, that I abandoned when we last moved. I recently learned bookbinding and I am making a notebook with blank copy paper pages and a leather sleeve/jacket over a card cover. I plan to use it as a commonplace book or something. I just like writing down thoughts and ideas and tiny bits of useful or interesting bits of information, and then reading everything so far like a magazine or an encyclopedia or something. Also I like the sensation of writing on fancy paper.
