Today: I Give You More Understanding
I'm not paying attention to the word of the day much, are you? I think I'll leave it off for a day or so to see how things go. Onto more entertaining things, though, I don't much feel like saying things right now. I feel horridly dejected without actually being that way. Odd, seems that deep seeded unhappiness has come up again. Anyway, I stole this from someone and I found it...interesting, I implore you, steal, fill out, enjoy.
