Opposites Attract

Perhaps Paula Abdul was right.

I've been thinking about my friends lately, and thinking how many of them are the exact opposite personality from me, and how at first, meeting this kind of person in high school would've made me throw up. And that's when I realized something: I'm not sure I'd like myself from high school if we were to meet now. I think I'd annoy him and vice versa, and I think we'd eventually kill each other (if we really did what we thought about doing). Which poses an interesting question for anyone to consider: if you met yourself on the street, and started to hang out with yourself, would you like it or hate it or both or neither? Obviously, no one is going to be honest if they think, "I'd love it but I can't say that because that might look like I'm totally self-absorbed." Heck, maybe I am one of these people and I'm telling you in a blog that I'd hate to meet myself just to "sound NOT self-absorbed." I don't know. But it is an interesting thought and if you can bypass all the crap that comes with such a loaded question, and stop for a second worrying about what other people will think of your answer, I really do feel it will tell you way more about yourself then any other personality test would or could.

And for the record, I used to think it'd be fun being a twin but I'm now going back on what I used to think and now, don't think that anymore. I hope you know I'm glad I'm not a twin.

Happy Friday.

i definately know there are things about myself i'm definately ashamed of from back in high school. there are also some things i wish i was still innocent about. so i think i would have mixed feelings. i would probably find myself somewhat cool, but very immature in some ways too.
