Did you know that I'm pretty awesome?

Sometimes, I try to make something really easy for dinner, and it doesn't turn out very well. I made sauteed carrots on Sunday night, and I added too much brown sugar. They didn't taste very good.

Most Saturday nights, instead of dressing up and going out, I like to sit in bed and watch HGTV. Actually, I pretty much do this every night.

I really hate bad drivers. Like, really hate bad drivers. But sometimes I get honked at too. I guess we all have some not-so-stellar driving days.

Yesterday I didn't wear makeup to work. I was feeling sick, and just didn't want to spend any more unecessary time standing up in the bathroom than I already was. I barely noticed all day that I had no makeup on my face, and I'm kind of okay with that.

I've had Citizen Kane sitting on my TV stand in the little red paper package from Netflix for over a month now. I just can't bring myself to watch it.

I really love to do calligraphy, but for every word that I've written that I love, there are dozens of pieces of wasted paper with scribbles all over them.

I have a lot of debt. Like, a lot. And it bothers me sometimes, but I don't regret it. I don't regret having a wonderful wedding or buying plane tickets for my husband so that he could go on grad school interviews. Money {and, especially, money problems} are just a part of life.

My apartment gets messy a lot. And sometimes I can't handle it. But then I remember that a home with stuff lying around isn't necessarily messy. It's just well-lived in.

I am the worst at getting back to people. It doesn't matter if it's via email, text, or phone. And it's not even because I forget. I'm just too lazy sometimes.

And I'm really bad at commenting on other people's blogs. Most of the time it's not because I don't read posts. Again, it's just because I'm kind of lazy.

I'm not a very consistent blogger. I don't have a schedule and I don't usually plan in advance what I'm going to post. Like today. I had no idea what I wanted to say when I got up this morning, but I knew that I wanted to say something, and I guess this is it.

I could say that despite all of these things, I'm still happy, but really, it's because all of these things that I'm happy. I'm happy because I'm me, and I don't want to be anybody else. These things make me who I am, and while I look up to people for inspiration, I don't want to be them. I just want to be the best me that I can be.

Hope you have a beautiful day everyone.

How am I not already following your blog?!

This was fun to read. It was nice to get to know you a lil better. And the HGTV every night thing? ME TOO. :)

if we had HGTV, i'd be doing a mix of that and blogging at a certain time every night....or just THAT. hehe:)

I am so envious of you and hope than one day I can just be happy with myself and everything around me - it's a huge feat that some people struggle their whole life with, so it's great that you've been able to find contentment and happiness at such an early stage in life.

Love your writing and really look forward to reading your posts :)

ps - I've been so busy with work and school that I haven't had a chance to post or use my beautiful signature yet - I'm hoping to do it tonight! :)

i read through every sentence and i can identify with almost all of what you've written! i love and enjoy making cards (just like you and calligraphy) and i tend to waste heaps of paper trying to get the perfect one done. and while i love being tidy, my table gets really messy most of the time, and i'm just too lazy to clear it up. but when it does get out of hand, i give up and clear it up. haha. and ooh, i totally know what you mean by not being a consistent blogger 'cos i'm not a consistent one either! :) glad that apart everything, you're happy with it all. i'll need to find some of that in me too.

just thought i'd let you know that i'm a big fan of your blog! :) so whatever it is, just keep doing what you're doing. x
