Hi.My name is Gabi. I'm an almost-finished-high-school student in Toronto. I'm more or less an INTP.
This is stuff I feel like posting. I like science, MBTI/cognitive functions which I sometimes like to pretend are science, terrible puns, books, and a number of other things.There will be whiny personal posts and mostly confusing posts about my indecisive cultural/religious/sexual/everything identities. Also a bunch of other things. Quality varies widely. Everything varies widely. Sorry. (I also apologize too much)
yeah clowns and heights are scary and all but have u ever clogged your friends toilet
true story i was watching a movie with a guy i liked and i went to use his bathroom and the toilet wouldn’t flush
and i’m not a mechanical whiz or anything but i’ve fixed a few toilets in my time so i reached into the tank and fixed it in a second
my arm was wet up to the elbow and i couldnt find anything to dry it with
so i walked back to the couch with a damp arm and he asked me if i fixed the toilet and i was like yes and felt embarrassed
but then it turned out he was really impressed
so clogged toilets can be a good thing i guess?
Don’t get me wrong: You can certainly find lightweight stuff on the science-fiction shelves, and if you think of yourself as someone who doesn’t like science fiction, you would have no difficulty at all putting your hands on books there that would confirm all your assumptions completely.
But then again, the fact that you can find lightweight, formulaic stuff on the “Romantic Fiction” shelves doesn’t mean that you dismiss any novel that deals with romantic love. Anna Karenina? Sons and Lovers? The Great Gatsby? Just because it is possible to assign a book to a “genre” (in the neutral sense of the word), doesn’t mean that it is “genre fiction” (in the loaded sense).
It’s not for me to say whether I’m a good writer or not, but I am certainly a serious one. By that I mean I don’t write simply to cater to my readers’ needs for an easy escape from life, but have a vision of the world that (for whatever reason) I have a strong need to communicate. And it just so happens that the science-fiction form is the one I’ve found to be best suited to my needs.
