My Soul Bear

I need someone to draw me a picture of a Soul Bear so I can use it as my eventual band logo, but also so that I can have it and laugh.

Please see this post to find out what a Soul Bear is. 

For my entire life, I've just assumed people didn't like me. I have no ill will toward them, but I always felt like if it was between me and someone else, they would want to hang out with someone else because WHO WOULDN'T? I am still amazed when friends call and ask for my attention because I'm so uncool that I'm warm. I always feel like the little kid around big grown ups, even though were often the same age and I'm intelligent enough to conversate the shit out of a... conversation. 

Anyway, this extends to my Twitter life. People follow me and I get all excited and happy. Then I go all "OH MY BOB THEY ARE GOING TO THINK I'M STUPID AND NOT COME TO MY BIRTHDAY PARTY AND UNFOLLOW ME AND I'LL BE DEVASTATED WHEN I NOTICE AND OHMYBOBBBBBB!"

Just for the record, when you try to dramatically write the word "Bob", it pretty much always looks like "boob". 

Heh. Boobies. 

Anyway, I have been known to occassionally (read: all the time) check to make sure people I admire out there on the Internetz are still following me. I do it with people I talk to all the damn time. It's the reason that I almost didn't want to start #SnarkLine. I was worried that no one would think I was funny or nice enough. 


So that's my Soul Bear. Even if you love me, I probably think you hate me. If you don't answer, I assume it's cause I said something stupid. Even with all of my educations and accomplishments, I will always be the kid that didn't get picked for kickball because she was too damn small.

Hi from down here.

As always, it's hip to be square (and obsessive!), kids.


  1. Dude. I'm the same way. I used to obsess over having everyone like me. I mean, I still want people to like me, but I couldn't care less if the popular girl in the sorority likes me (cuz I'm old and shit).

    But I do get it. I think that's why a lot of us like to blog and tweet cuz you know, attention. I like you so :)

  2. I went through much of my childhood and adulthood wanting people to like me. I STILL want everyone to like me, but am learning how to be okay with it if they don't.

    I like you. Lots. So there. :)

  3. I really used to worry about being liked, as a kid it was bad, and as an adult it got worse. Now I am learning to let it go. If they like me, fine. If they don't, then there's just going to be some issues there.

    I like you. LOTS. So there. :)
