In Ten Words...

About Me(Note: Forgive me if I am quite reserved with adding people as friends - If I don't add you, it doesn't mean that I don't like you. I prefer having a smaller friend list with people that I am actively interested in seeing in the chat and with whom I have talked with more than just a couple of sentences. I am sorry for any inconvenience - I don't mind if you remove me from your list because I haven't added you.)
I am Corelis, and I came from there.
I've been here quite a while. I used to be ∞ member #724 ∞ in the archive site, as I'm writing this, I've been a member for over 5 years. This place has changed quite a bit during those years. I suppose I have, too?
This section is supposed to be "About Me", but with all the personality categories one can use and the Ten Words, a section for religious beliefs, political ideologies and dream jobs, not to mention Interests, what can I write in here that wouldn't just reflect what those other sections can already tell you? I suppose none of those things give a feel of the person listing them, so that's what this section is for. Perhaps the way I tell about myself is more important than what I tell about myself?
Or I could elaborate on things that aren't covered in those helpful sections. Such as my past, perhaps. There isn't that much to tell about it, though. I enjoyed school, and I did well in there. I'd say high school was the best period of my life so far. I wasn't exactly a social butterfly, but I wasn't an outcast either - I got along with people well. The studying itself interested me in addition to spending time with friends - during the second year of high school, there were so many courses I was interested in that I couldn't fit them all in my timetables, so I couldn't study everything I wanted to.
After high school I spent eight and half months in the military. Finland has conscription, and while I could have chosen civil service or prison instead of military service, I thought military service would be of most use to me and would take the least time. It was... an experience. I think I grew as a person there, and I'd say that in the end, it was worth it. Though it is always easy to say that in retrospect, after all the suffering is behind you.
And now I am in an university. I'll see how things will go.
I suppose I could share more things about my past that I consider important, but I don't really feel like doing it. My apologies if you were interested. I have a tendency to keep things to myself, to the point of it being a flaw of mine. Oh well, I suppose those things would only really be of significance to me, anyway.
Everyone has a wealth of past experiences at the back of their minds, a result of several years' worth of life. Sometimes it is intersting to just take a step back and try to remember something you've forgotten for now. What you find might surprise you.
What other hopefully interesting facts are there to share about myself? I suppose I have a bit of a competetive streak, as long as the competing is strictly friendly and for fun. The moment the reason to win becomes anything other than "because it is the objective of the game", it isn't enjoyable anymore. And I suppose I might prefer indirect competitions, anyway, where one isn't in direct conflict with someone else. I like scoreboards for this reason - one doesn't need to play directly against someone in order to have a playful competition. Though a direct clash of skills can be fun, too.
I suppose I'm a bit of a challenge gamer, too. I generally like difficult games, such as Dark Souls, which I enjoyed quite a lot indeed. I also admire mastery over things - I like watching videos of people demonstrating amazing skill in various things, such as video games.
I switch colours. I used to be deep green for about three years, until I found out that changing one's colour every now and then is quite refreshing, despite being initially doubtful about it. Why don't you try it some time?
