    I'm pretty content. I think it would be a bit egotistical to think of myself as awesome, but I'm happy with everything right now.

    That's me too. But then I remind myself that bipolar disorder is associated with high intelligence and abundant creativity, and, even as I'm fighting not to step in front of the train, I remember how awesome I am in my misery. ;)

    So yes, I am awesome, and here are the reasons why:

    -I am very good at my job.
    -I have excellent fashion sense.
    -I'm super-duper smart.
    -I am a very talented artist.
    -I have a great sense of humor.
    -I look good in any and all hats.
    -I can enjoy almost any situation just a little bit, if only for the sake of novelty, e.g. getting an arterial blood-draw in the ICU (as opposed to blood drawn from the vein) is incredibly painful, but it left a killer bruise from the palm of my hand to my elbow! It was a thing of beauty!
    -I have gorgeous hair.
    -I have awesome tattoos.
    -I'm pretty hot.
    -I'm well-read.
    -I get physics jokes.
    -I play the cello.
    -I bake really good cookies.
    -I can bike 25 miles and not get tired.
    -I can recognize any episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation after watching only a few seconds.
    -I had a really rough childhood, which I know does not make me inherently awesomer than people who had it easy, but since I came through it all awesomely, it makes me awesome.
    -I can put my feet behind my head in yoga class.
    -I know all the words to all the songs by David Bowie and all the songs from The Sound of Music.
    -I stayed up for 7 days straight once -- granted I was manic, but it was pretty awesome.
    -I am American and can name all the actors who played The Doctor in order, and could do so before NuWho.
    -I drew an awesome picture of Carl Sagan.

    Of course I'm not awesome. If I were, I'd have nothing to aspire to.

    Since "Groovy" was not an option, I chose "Awesome."

    For eight of the same reasons as tsq. I'll let you figure out which. :cool:

    "How are you?" is a question nobody really wants to hear the answer to so we get programmed to say "I'm fine."
    I say "I'm awesome! :techman:"

    and I do the techman too :D

    I'm pretty much a half blind "4". Bit then that "8" galpal due home this week makes up for a lot.

    Heh, true - I've intentionally been answering either 'Shit, you?' or making up a little depressing story to get a reaction.

    My mate Scotty questioned it, and I said the same as your quote. It's a great conversation killer when I'm not in a talking mood.

    My personality is proactive when I'm strong, and reactive when I'm weak. When I'm strong, you'll get a "hell yeah, now let's cure cancer and change the laws of fucking physics!", but when I'm weak, my environment shapes my attitude, and you get more of a "why am I even here? what's the point of any of this same old shit, different day?"

    So my answer is "meh", since my personality goes extreme both ways.
