A Fine Line - Between Chaos and Creation

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy; I don't mind, I think they're crazy...

For some reason, Dr. Seuss' quote "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." popped into my head this morning and refused to leave. So it got me thinking that I should write something up.

Basically, I kind of feel that that quote was made for me.

This is because I don't try to change who I am to please other people. What they see is what they get. Some of you (FB readers, mostly) may remember a few years back, when I went through my "Urban Pirate" phase. Yes? No? (Basically, I wore lots of jewelry and dressed... well, like an Urban Pirate. Unfortunately [or maybe fortunately], I can't find any pictures to show you at the current time.)

I went out in public dressed like that many times (for about two years), and nobody said anything. One of the reasons was that I wore it with the attitude of "this is what I'm wearing; don't like it? Too bad.", and the other reason was that people just accepted that as my 'normal'. (In fact, people commented when I DIDN'T dress like that. They'd always ask why. :P)

Now, I don't dress like that any more (didn't have the time to keep putting on/taking off all the jewelry and stuff for showering/cadets), but the basic attitude is still there; not just in what I wear, but in what I do. I do what makes me, happy, not necessarily what pleases everyone else.

Now, don't get me wrong; I'm not a self-centred jerk. In fact, I love making other people happy, and I constantly try to help others around me out in any way I can. :D What I'm saying is, if it has to do with me (ie: what career path I want to follow/what I ultimately want to do with my life), then I do what makes me happy. Lots of people think I ought to become a music teacher or an elementary school teacher, but neither of those appeal to me. However, the military does - ergo, I'm most likely going into the military.

So, there we have another another piece of the puzzle that is me. (and it's a very complex puzzle. ;P) I'll add more 'pieces' when I have more inspiration.
