<segway> I was terribly depressed when I was younger. From ~age 10 'til ~age 21 (or 22) when I changed the spelling of my first name. I felt that I was manic/depressive (mostly depressive), unworthy of love, too smart, and had no friends (well, I didn't, really). Here's what Kabalarians4 has to say about my old first name. </segway>
The name of OLDNAME gives you a clever, quick, analytical mind, but you suffer with a great deal of self-consciousness, lack of confidence, and much aloneness because of misunderstandings. Your idealistic and sensitive nature gives you a deep appreciation for the finer things of life and a strong desire to be of service to humanity. There are times when you experience inner turbulence at your inability to say what you mean. It is far easier for you to express your deeper thoughts and feelings through writing than verbally. You find pleasure in literature, in poetry, and in your ideals and will turn to them when you feel you have been misunderstood. You are deeply moved by the beauties of life, especially nature. Because your feelings run deep, you must guard against the ups and downs, being very inspired one minute, then moody, reserved, and depressed the next. Your reactions to people vary according to how you feel. You tend to be secretive and noncommittal about private matters, yet at times you will talk effusively in order to hide your self-consciousness or to lead others away from personal subjects. You are inspired by encouragement from others, yet suspicious of their intent. You crave affection but seldom find anyone who understands your nature. Physical weaknesses would show in your heart, lungs, or bronchial organs
Damn. Straight on.
This is my "new" name:
Although your first name of NEWNAME has created an expressive, fun-loving nature, it has not produced the qualities necessary for a full and complete life. You have always been a happy person, and, desiring to see others happy as well, you strive to inspire others, which you do most effectively through an engaging sense of humour. You are fond of surprises and are quick to respond to spontaneous invitations which promise a good time, particularly when they relieve you of a boring task. Your dislike for monotony and routine, often means that you do not finish the things you start. A natural rhythm, a sense of colour harmony, and creative ability contribute to a flair for composition and artistic and musical expression. Expression comes easily to you; in fact, you should learn to control it and discipline your expression. You are not practical where money matters are concerned, your theory being that money is there to be spent. You are kind and generous, and will fill a need when you see it; at times, others take advantage of your generosity. The most serious drawback of the influence of this name is in the strong emotional feelings that it produces, which are difficult to control and create lack of stability in your thinking or in your affairs. A craving for sweet foods could cause skin conditions or liver problems. You could find it difficult to control your desires and could over-indulge in your pleasures
The only things that didn't give me shivers were the "money was made to be spent" (I save; I just don't invest as I should), the "strong emotional feelings..." (unless they mean in other people, in which case, makes sense; but I don't think they do, so it doesn't), and the difficulty in controlling my desires.
But still, each is so close as to send chills down my back.
Thanks to wolfiegirl for reminding me about this... it's been sitting in my LJTemp file for too long.
In other news, I am Good with Chaotic tendencies.
I thought that was rather obvious, but maybe not.
In other news, I'm going places : ) Far-away places... *coughsiggraphcough*
(I'll get into more detail when I'm not in a bloody play!) : P
Speaking of that bloody5 Scottish6 thing, I don't think too many people are offbook, and there are certain scenes that have been rehearsed, oh, maybe once. Opening night is less than a week away-- should be interesting. We did have a nifty game of streets and alleys the other day, though! Not quite sure what that was supposed to achieve, but gosh! It was nifty fun! And nifty fun must NOT be undervalued!7
Speaking of nifty, I have somehow managed to get caught up with Sluggy again : ) I really don't know how I did that... I'm certain the "week-at-a-glance" feature helped immensely.
1 Fine. pick nits. pick arachnits, even! ; P
1a Not this kind.
2 Not a real lark.
3 Odd... I thought I was antisocial then.
4 I've been meaning to study the kabala further, I really have.
5 Literal and figurative.
6 More Scots-like than Scottish, really.
7 No, not that kind of valued.
