|Who am I around you?|
I think, after noticing this, I've been able to dial it down some. With some effort and self awareness, I've sort of streamlined myself. Chances are, unless you're a special case, you're going to get a Justin that's pretty close to the one everyone else gets. Maybe not, maybe that's generalizing myself too much. People (all people) are super complicated. You know, actually, no, that's wrong. Each and every one of you gets a unique Justin, geared toward you. Granted, in specific groups I'll probably fall into some default setting, but for the most part, you know a Justin no one else knows.
Realizing that I change around people made me think about relationships in a weird way.
I like people when I like myself around them?
So For me to like you I have to like myself or how I act around you?
If the grass is always greener on the other side, stand in the middle
If the grass is always greener on the other side, leave the field
If the grass is always greener on the other side maybe you should hate your side
Who cares about how green the grass is If their is no oxegen

Dude second to last one is freaking awesome. Why did I use the last one for my shirt?
What? No way the last one and the third to last one are the best.
Yeah, 10/16/11 Justin is definitely right. Sorry, 1/12/09
I think the first notion is still something to consider. I imagine it's not that simple, both people definitely play a role in the relationship, but it's interesting to think that we're not only judging the person we're with when we spend time with people, but we're judging ourselves as well. Judging might not be the right word.

Also, I don't know if you guys think it's awesome, but I think it's great that a dialogue between myself has found its way onto the page. The best part is my disagreement with myself. People change, that's not a bad thing.
I always thought it was dumb when I would hear authors talk about how their characters had a say in what got written. I especially thought it was dumb when they would say that their characters talked with them. I don't think that's so dumb anymore. I have a character who has flip flopped between minor and major antagonist too many times, and dealing with that is the reason I haven't busted out too many words in the past few days.
There's some other stuff going on in my life, some of it's actually kind of awesome, but it's late and I have to work early. Thanks for reading, and for allowing me to be this Justin, if only online.
