I've recently realized (well, I've always known it, just never really pointed it out to myself, I guess) that everything I do, I take it really really seriously. Like I'm making something huge and important. Whether I'm thinking up a status message for AIM or writing a thread for a community no one is actually following... I always think of everything I do as something great. And it's not that I consider myself to be that amazing. On the contrary, I think I suck. I think I'm genius, but I suck. It's just that...I think that whatever you do, you have to do it like it's a masterpiece, or else you might as well not do it at all. I suppose that's why I'm always so terrified of people stealing my work. Because every word I write means the world to me.
