For NaBloPoMo, I decided to update my old "100 Things About Me" list and run 25 items for each of the Mondays in November. Here is part two.
I have never (yet) owned a dog.
I have an ex-husband and a whole previous life that most of my current peeps don’t know about.
I have a lifelong hate-hate relationship with my hair.
If I had a prettier face, I'd shave it off.
It kind of irks me that it matters how pretty my face and hair are.
I don't wear makeup; not for any particular feminist reason, but because I can't be bothered.
I don't drink coffee or tea. People find this very confusing.
I own a house. I want a bigger one.
I have a wonderful husband, who sometimes makes me crazy but most often makes me very very happy.
I have a younger sister whom I completely adore. She drives me crazy sometimes too.
I have a child, just one, and she is magnificent. And, of course, crazy-making.
I am a distance education student at Athabasca University.
I am going to graduate with my BA in English next Spring.
I am a talented singer.
I like to take photographs of things that amuse me.
I don't usually enjoy doing things unless I am good at them.
In an effort to break this habit, I am currently taking Hip Hop dance classes even though I am terrible at it.
I define my self-worth through my sense of accomplishment.
I am an impatient person. My dad used to say I had "all the patience of a boiling teakettle." He's right.
I am a Christian.
I am glad I'm a woman.
I am a feminist.
I am an arts person, and definitely not a science person.
I love to read. I think people who don't read are scary.
I am good at reading out loud.
I get uncomfortable at parties. I prefer more honest and intimate gatherings.
I will tell you pretty much anything you want to know about me - if you ask.
