A few positive adjectives that describe you: child-like, open-minded, passionate, protective, strong-sense-of-self
A few negative adjectives that describe you: lazy, impatient, angry, perfectionistic, socially anxious
Describe your outlook on life: I'd say I'm optimistic, for the most part. I'm realistic too, though- I don't expect anyone to get out there and live my life for me, but I often believe that my best effort is good enough to get by with, so as long as I've tried my hardest, I tend not to worry. I'm pretty good at gauging what it takes to achieve things, and I understand my own strengths and weaknesses. I think you get out of life pretty much what you put into it. I tend to get really excited about the prospect of my future, and I'm good at focusing on the big picture- if I stumble today, I know that tomorrow will be better. I don't focus on small things to get me down.
Describe your outlook on love: I pretty much believe that you're better off waiting for love to come to you. I tend to look down on people trying too hard, and I outright reject people that would rather first date me than get to know me- no. You have to be my friend first. I'm not going to chance being with somebody whom I might have major problems with down the line. Doesn't even make SENSE to me. Dating is not a get-to-know-each-other period for me. But yeah, love is awesome and great, but I tend to think that as long as I have a few close friends to hang out with and lean on, it's not imperative RIGHT THIS SECOND.
Hobbies: drawing, writing, daydreaming/creating, collecting, making graphics, role-playing, decorating/reorganizing my living space
Something you feel strongly about: The quality of the creative media industry today... ESPECIALLY TV/MOVIES. Ugh, everything is just a rip off of something released two months previous that had marginal success. Nobody is willing to break out of the mold and be experimental- to create with passion and drive, to make something that CANNOT fail simply because of its brilliance. No, the entire world is just riding on the coattails of the person that came before them, releasing similar idea after similar idea in hopes of catching some attention for themselves. It's a shame how money seems to matter more today than creating something substantial- last I checked, movie-making was supposed to be an ART FORM, so let's get out there and make some ART. omfg~.

Colors: hot pink, electric blue, orange, neon green... rainbows (provided they are in roy g biv order; ugh they look lame when not)... I like BRIGHT, vibrant colors :D
Optimist or pessimist: Optimist- I think I already explained my viewpoint there well enough.
Extrovert or introvert: Introvert- I love my friends, but I need some time alone to relax and recharge.
Adventurous or practical: *tilts head* Those are opposite? Couldn't you be practical in your adventure-seeking? I'd say that's definitely possible. In any case, I'd say I'm in the middle.
Logic or dreams: Dreams, for sure. Logic is based in reality, and I prefer to think about reality as LITTLE as possible, haha. Boring!
Easy-going or uptight: Easy-going, definitely. I forgive and forget pretty easy. Also, if something bad happens to me, I'm pretty good at shrugging it off and getting over it rather quickly.
A quote (or quotes) that you really like a why: "If you never stop when you wave goodbye, you just might find if you give it time, you will wave hello again." - John Mayer, "Wheel"
I love this quote, because it kind of serves to remind me that life is full of variables, and as long as you treat it as such, nothing is permanent. Saying goodbye to someone might hurt, but if you focus immediately on seeing them again, life won't be half as bad.
Anything else you would like to add: I tend to hate this question, because it causes me to sit here for ten minutes pondering about what perfect witty phrase I should tack on to the end of my app... lol, forget it. >:P
