to give it meaning
I need you to share the view
or it becomes a time for me to love myself
like every other thing I do"
And love myself, I do. I'm doing quite alright by that score, of late. I'm encountering a lot of "I set out to do X, X is done." It's refreshing, to be able to take responsibility for your actions.
It's also interesting to note that it's probably the second time since I was in high school that I don't have a clearly-defined "crush" (fictitous characters aside). And the other time was after I'd broken up with Amanda, and I was sitting out the rest of the season. This time, it's not a rebound thang.
A shift in monomania, if you will. Instead of focusing on getting girls, I'm focused on all the things in my way. I'm focused, to a lesser extent, on figuring out just what my way is.
Doesn't mean I can't still flirt like the trained adept I am.
Yay, I'm "cute." Is it alright for a boy to feel "pretty," though? Huh, society? Is it?
If I may, I'd like to introduce the cleric to my mage. Wait for it... wait for it. Like any good wisdom, it takes patience. (23 seconds worth, natch).
The Oracle is in, baby.
