Where wild minds come to rest

I'm new to this site, so I feel like I would like to offer a small tidbit of who I think I am, or at least, the important things that define me (for good or ill). 

I'm an English Major, which (apologies in advance) means I will often write length blog posts (my essays are always 800+ words over the limit). and a Philosophy Minor. I love exploring the human condition. I love ethics, and I love considering Metaphysics. I tend to think in pictures rather than words. I'm stubborn, hard on myself, and value my alone time. I do martial arts. I'm a dreamer. I'll admit that I'm slightly in love with every one of my characters, and it breaks my heart. I hope to write a story one day, but know that my creative writing skills are currently not enviable to say the least. I love music, though I have nothing to contribute to the field. I love to sketch, and do well enough for my own purposes, though always wish I could improve. I strongly believe in the need to explore the demons of human nature while still staying in touch with the angels. I am very strongly affected by things that aren't directly related to me (i.e. daydreams, books, music, ideas), while pushing away emotions that relate to me, myself personally. I shy away from interpersonal connections for fear of vulnerability. I cannot handle being vulnerable. Because of this, I feel generally pretty socially inept (though I have people tell me otherwise, however I have good reason to doubt them). I'm an awkward person, which people will acknowledge. I'm a techno-phobe in some ways. I value what technology has done for us, but I fear the road down which it is taking us. I'm opinionated about capitalism and politics. I try to learn from every situation and person I come across, and always value argument. I always want to learn; I want to learn another language, motorbike, I want to travel, and become a stronger person, physically and mentally.

And that's me! In a nutshell of blurbs. Thanks for adding me on this site :) I hope to get to know you all.

I'm an English major as well :) Though I do freelance writing and love to write essays and articles, I find it difficult to do creative writing, though I once dabbled in poetry years ago. I want to post some of my daydreaming scenarios in the MD Writers group, but I realize my own shortcomings with actually articulating it the way I want. 

Anyway, thanks for sharing! I look forward to getting to know you more. I'm thankful for this website because I may not have ever met people like you in real life, even if we happened to be in the same city.

Whoa, you sound super smart, and a lot A LOT like me :3 Except I can't sketch.

Nice to meet you Antigone :3

I think you still should write out your stories. You can always have someone else proof-read and give you suggestion.

Yeah, I'm probably going to take psychology as my social sciences elective; I'll let you know how it goes! If you ever want to talk about those psychology things (archetypes and what-not), or anything philosophical, let me know! 

My characters have been with me more or less for... 7 years now? About? I have an atrocious memory, so it's hard to say. They've adapted and evolved as I have, but the base sense of them is the same. I really, really want to start trying to write about them. Unfortunately my writing is very essay-like, so I have a hard time letting loose in other writing endeavours. 

Yeah, I worry about where technology is taking us. (please disregard the irony of my computer allowing this text, heh). It's just that I find too many people relying on iPhones to get them through life, iPads and Tv to keep kids distracted, and the losing of any sense of personal conversation that scares me. And eBooks are probably my ultimate enemy, ha.  Further, I try to remain as internet-anonymous as I can, but know that it's pretty well futile, and I resent that. iPods are my life, I will admit. I need the music, just as I'm sure others need their texting, so I ought not judge. I just know for myself I prefer to remain as separate as I can from such things. And thanks :)

I was an English Major, too, and I love philosophy. But the subject I enjoy most is psychology, especially the old school stuff, like Jung, Horney, Adler, and Freud. I am fascinated by the conscious and unconscious aspects of the mind. Archetypes, dream symbolism, introversion and extraversion - all that good stuff! I'm also writing a story about my daydream characters (they have been with me for several years now), and it's one of the few things that really excites me these days. I also draw but am so-so at it. Interesting that you say you are a techno-phobe. I used to be extremely tech-averse and would even avoid the internet for reasons. Now it's not so bad. But i can relate to a lot of what you say! Glad that you are here, Antigone! Welcome to Wild Minds!
