I loved that girl, I thought she loved me
But I was mistaken as she loved he
So one night I followed her home
Waited in the car, all alone
Then I saw that bastard with her
Had no real time to quiver
I grabbed him from behind and stabbed him in the heart
Then I turned my attention to that little tart
I grabbed her head and slit her throat
Got thick red blood all over my coat
Then that dirty whore
Dropped stone dead on the floor
Blood poured from her neck
Left me in a bitter wreck
Pulled out her eyes
All her fucking lies
I drank her blood
It was good
Then I thought I should
Cover her in mud
Now I'm in gaol, the only friend I have...
Is this snail
About Perfection 101
Call me Dan. I'm 18 and I've been playing guitar for a little over 4 years. That doesn't mean I'm good, though; I have retarded fingers and my background isn't remotely musical, unlike most musicians I know. Though in reality, those are just excuses for not practicing enough and making poor choices when deciding what GCSEs I wanted to take. However, despite sucking at playing it, music is perhaps the most important thing in my life.
A close second for that title is knowledge - it doesn't really matter what it's about, I'll read anything for the sake of expanding my intellectual horizons. If that makes me sound geeky, then you've got the right impression of me. This year I'll be starting a Computer Science degree, though I've recently realised that I'm rather fond of Psychology so I'll try to talk someone into letting me take Psych on the pretence of helping me with AI (there isn't really much of a connection, the only thing it might help with is my appalling social skills).
Well, my social skills aren't TOO bad, I just fail at small talk; "hai wubu2?" does not register as a valid conversation starter for me, especially when the response is "lol kl", after which the conversation inevitably dies. I'd much prefer an in-depth discussion about time travel, religion, politics, or pretty much anything else. I may not know much about some topics, but I'm still a pretty good listener. Which led to my apparent appointment as the local Secret Keeper.
That just about covers the main points. Apologies if I came across as a bit of a tool, I've yet to get the hang on this self-description lark.
