Leliel's here! She's in boxes in the entrance, but still, she's here.
However, I am typing this from Bryan's computer because for some reason the Internet on Bryan's computer has ceased working. Grrrr.
Goodbye, everyone going to Otakon!! (I think I already missed my chance to say a proper goodbye to Laris ._.) Have fun!!
Tonight I will talk about something which I think about sometimes, but was mentioned to me by the Laris.
I think that I am pretty forthright in my opinions (which is what Laris told me, basically), and that includes compliments. Understand that when I compliment you, or when I tell you that I like you, or love you, or that you make me happy, or that something you've done is beautiful, funny, or interesting, or anything along that vein, I am saying it because I mean it. And I would not say it if something in me did not believe it to be true. All of you who are my friends are my friends because I think you're amazing. I want you to know that, and I want you to know that I compliment you freely because I want to remind you of that.
I'm a bad liar. When I try to lie, I give off all the 'signs' of lying, including the most telling being that my body temperature rises and my face gets reddish, and since my skin is lily white, it is REALLY noticeable. Even online, I have a hard time forcing out something I know is not true at all (though to say I've never lied would of course be a lie), especially when it comes to a friend. So if you're my friend, or even if you're someone I don't know and I've complimented you, or praised you in any way, it's because I mean it. And I will probably continue to do so. In fact I think I need to do it more often. I get kind of lazy sometimes. -_-;
The fact is that I'm pretty dumb when it comes to relationships. So the best way I can think of to tell people that I like them is to find some way to remind them. So here's a big reminder: I love you all. I think you're great. And I mean it.
