Day 29: A picture of yourself.

Day 29: A picture of yourself.

For a while, I wasn't sure how personal I wanted to make this blog, and I would have avoided posting things like pictures of me, my name, and other personal details like that. Then, I decided, people aren't going to follow a blog if they don't connect with the person writing it. So here it is, a picture of me. I started to post one of me and my boyfriend but I haven't asked him how he'd feel about that, so this one is just me.

This is me from about this time last year. The boyfriend and I were scouring costume shops for items for his Rorschach cosplay and my female cosplay of the Comedian. 

Day 28: What do you wish for at 11:11?

Day 28: Do You Wish For Anything At 11:11? If so, what?

I can't say that I specifically wait around watching a clock for 11:11, but if I happen to pass by one and notice that's the time, I might wish for something.

Sometimes I wish for a long and happy life with my boyfriend, sometimes I wish for a better job. Sometimes I wish for better health and less stress for my parents. For my dad to get a new kidney, or a new pancreas, or just for his eyes to get better and not get any worse.

What do you wish for at 11:11?

Day 27: A Picture of Your Handwriting.

Day 27: A picture of your handwriting

I wrote down one of two simple quotes in my normal every day handwriting. I've written in both print and cursive. I'm not a fan of my print, so please excuse it. I've been using cursive predominately since 2nd grade. 

And in case you find my handwriting impossible to read, the top quote is from A Death Cab for Cutie Song. "So brown eyes I'll hold you near, 'cause you're the only sound I want to hear. A melody softly soaring though my atmosphere." The second quote I found on tumblr and it says, "Don't ever think you're alone here. We've just been trapped in different hells. And people aren't against you dear, they're just all for themselves." - e.h. 

Now show me your handwriting!

Day 26: What are some little things that make you feel warm and fuzzy?

Day 26: What are some little things that make you feel warm and fuzzy?

I'm an odd bird but you asked so here you go. I love rain. Gentle rain and full on storms. I like candle lit rooms. I like a good book, a warm blanket, and a cup of hot chocolate. I love wild flowers. I like the smell of fresh cut grass. I like walking though the woods, especially in the fall. I like camping and that time of morning where it's still cool and foggy and the fire is smoldering, ready to be built back up. It's peaceful and quiet and I never feel more at home than I do there. I like big giant lazy rivers. I like laying in hammocks. I love laughing with close friends. I love driving though curvy mountain roads in the fall, with all the leaves changing colors.

These are things that make me feel warm and fuzzy. What about you?

Day 25: Who Would You Rather Date?

Day 25: Would you rather date someone with plain looks and an amazing personality or someone with beautiful looks but a plain personality?

Give me the plain looks and awesome personality any day of the week. Looks are nice, and physical attraction is strong. But what good is that if the person attached to them is as dull as a sign post? Not to mention, looks fade. And then you're left with ok looks and a plain personality. 
The guy with plain looks is gonna keep that awesome personality even after the beautiful person's looks are gone. I'll talk the amazing personality any day because I like to listen and to make small little references they have to know to say anything to.

What's your choice? 

Day 23: A Letter to Someone. Anyone.

Day 23: A Letter To Someone. Anyone.

Please allow me to start this letter by saying that I know you love your kid. I get it, I really do. But you have to understand something. You can't shelter them forever. At some point, you have to start letting them do things on their own. Those milestones have marked their success in this life since the first one of their first breath. 
You let them learn to hold their head up, crawl, make sounds, walk, talk, use the potty, feed themselves, tie their shoes, ect. Why is it any different to let them go to their first day of school, join their first sports team, drive by their selves, go on their first date, get their first job, graduate, and move off to college? I get that for most single parents, it's an empty nest sort of thing. You've become over-protective because they are your world and then you don't want to let them go because you will be alone.
But you have to let them go. And more importantly, you have to let them make their own mistakes. You must allow them to learn their own lessons. You should be there to support them, to help stand them back up and dust them off when they fall, just as you always have. You have to let them learn and grown and change in all the ways that they must in order to shape the person they will ultimately become.
This also means that you must accept their decisions for their life. When they are young adults (18+) you will have to understand that they are going to go where they want, do what they want, and date who they want. You don't have to be overjoyed with their decisions, but you do have to accept them. If you don't, you're only going to wind up pushing them further away. 
Please remember that the soul reason of you raising them was so that they would make responsible and respectable decisions. Trust the lessons you taught them when they were young and let them out into the world. All creatures on this planet do it, after a fashion. Why can't you?
