iseultisdead answered your question: new followers, old ones, ask me questions? it’s been awhile since i’ve been on tumblr. please?

WHy has it been so long since you’ve been on Tumblr?

I was going through a serious bout of depression and sitting on the internet for hours wasn’t helping me get better. Instead I’m working on being more physically active (baseball, working out) and just being emotionally happy and healthy in general. 

iseultisdead replied to your post: Seriously though what happened to the tag…

They were really annoying. Personally, I get really OCD about numbers like that, and would always click on the tags I was following to keep them down at 0, and (God forbid) off of “20+”. I have the same problem with Facebook game invites. It’s awful.

Yeah but like now I have no idea when the tags have updated and that’s kind of annoying too :T

You can call me Pants ;) Or uh… whatever nickname you want to give me.

Ya know, Pants might actually work for you. Personality-wise, I think it might fit.  A banter-buddy, if you will.

…Why “Pants”? Also, if you were to give me a nickname, what would it be?

For starters, I wouldn’t give you one because I don’t like you.*

*The above statement is intended ironically and as a joke.

I don’t know why, really.  I just remember watchingWar Horsewith my sister in which someone’s pants fit them particularly well, and in my head I went, “Hello, Pants."  It just sounded so right.  It’s the kind of nickname you give someone, then with nonchalant confidence yell from across the room, "Hey, Pants!  We need you over here!  Put some pep in that step!"  Those are the best kind of nicknames.

I’m not sure what I’d nickname you, really.  Cynthia and Sarah always had so many for you, I never had to think of one.  I’ll work on it.

That depends. What’s their taste in music like?

Cringe-worthy.

What else are you supposed to judge people on?

I do it all the time…

Excellent. I take this as permission to continue with this method.

… It’s better than the stage where you see a hot older man and immediately want to jump his bones, his relationship status be damned! I’ve been stuck at this stage for a long time now.

Oh, Afrida.  You hold a special place in my heart. iseultisdead replied to your post: I’ve apparently reached the stage in my life where…

…What’s wrong with socially awkward?

Dear one, people like you and I are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to socially awkward.  We’re not remarkably good with people, but we generally recognize this and attempt to compensate in some way.  Like not saying everything that comes into our head.

But there are some who think they’re great with people.  When they’re really not.  There are some who, more than simply failing to fully comprehend the rules of social interaction, seem to make up their own as they go along and expect that everyone else is also operating under them.

Trust me, if these people make me notice that they’re awkward, it’s an extreme case.  You are not one of these people.
