It's so strange when you chance upon accounts of the way you used to be, written by other people. Reading one's own LJ entries can still come as a surprise - case in point, I used to be like this
, and though it was written one-and-a-half years ago, it's so irrepressibly genki
and high-on-life that I'm amazed at how I've changed since then.
It's sometimes even more amusing when you read what others wrote about you. I lived in Boston, Massachusetts, for a time when I was young, and my mother wrote letters to her family about our life there. My aunt came over on a visit with the cousins today ♥ (REVEAL YOURSELVES, RELATIVES ♥ is what I yell when I get home XD), and she brought three letters my mother had written.
I was two-and-a-half then, and the me that my mother describes - Heh
"She's in good hands," wrote my mother, "Giving us a terrible time. Sometimes I believe she treats us like slaves and manipulates us to do whatever she wants."
Then she mentions that I go to play with a son of a parental friend, who was two at the time. According to my mother, I "always beat up the boy, quarrelling over toys - she is so aggressive."

True Neutral "Pure Neutral"
Some neutral [people] commit themselves philosophically to neutrality. They are of the true neutral alignment as described in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons.
A true neutral [person] sees good, evil, law, and chaos as prejudices and dangerous extremes. He advocates the middle way of neutrality as the best, most balanced road in the long run.
Some true neutral [people] actively support balance in the world, and seek to avoid having any one side, law or chaos, good or evil, become too powerful over them or anyone else, and will work against whichever side is the most powerful. They tend to side with the underdog in any situation, and are often opportunistic in their actions.
True neutral is committed to the avoidance of extremes, and is non-judgemental.

. I ended up Neutral Good
on the traditional Wizards Alignment Test
- to which I say, the hell
? I used
to be Lawful Good - before I started studying law
, too! But the curious thing is, after I studied law, I had less respect for the law than before I started, because I could now see how and why it could and would be, and indeed, is
, flawed. I still believe that it's good that it exists (after all, I believe humans are fundamentally chaotic and evil creatures and need to be smacked, or threatened with a smacking, repeatedly so that they will behave and not abuse other people), but I'm no longer naturally convinced that it's necessarily a good thing.
I start work next Monday. D: I will spend my last remaining free days by doing exactly as I wish - most of the time. Other than Japanese lessons on Saturday - my exam is next
Saturday, and while learning Japanese is fun, studying
it is an entirely different kettle of cheegles, except not as cute or kickable. >D I still want to make so many crazy posts about the absolute rubbish I love (you too, Luke ♥).
