There’s those silly tests online/facebook about “Which whatever are you.” I enjoy them in as much as I find them a silly distraction. The recent one was “Who would play you in the story of your life?” I got Jennifer Lawrence because we apparently share the same affinity for honesty, intensity, girl next doorness, being one of the guys, and being self-effacing.
They are certainly an odd thing, those tests, but I found the whole thing about being self-effacing interesting. Why would you not be self-effacing? It’s good to look at yourself, see your faults and flaws, and then recognize them with humor. I think it’s good for the soul. Not only does it acknowledge that yes you do suck sometimes, but I’d like to think that it also shows acceptance and understanding that perfection is a delusional state.
Who knows, maybe I’m talking out my ass. I do that sometimes.
