"oh what, you're a sensitive artist? That's COOL WE SHOULD DATE!"
"oh... you spend most of your time on the computer making things? LET'S BREAK UP!"
This has pretty much convinced me that I need to only date other creative people.
Old high school friends asking me what I'm doing with my life. "Well, I went to college, got a masters, I'm a business analyst by day, a filmmaker by night, so yeah, things are pretty good."
Only to then be told "well I din't never have no need for collage, and I ended up jest fine!!!"
"Yes, I see you did."
I am a grammar and spelling and capitalization and punctuation Nazi.
Money irritates me, because most people use it to measure how successful someone is, when I use happiness and cultural capital to measure how successful someone is.
