It's been ages and ages since I've been tagged to do a meme, so you can imagine my surprise when two people on one day decided I would actually finish one of these things. Imagine their
surprise when they see I that I finished TWO of these things. I am such a trooper, no?
First, from Barry
I AM: an optimistic pessimist.
I WANT: my own home, a family and a garden.
I WISH: I had it in me to live a more spontaneous life.
I HATE: the state of our world on so many levels that I will never discuss in my blog.
I MISS: playing carefree on playgrounds, my friends I've lost touch with over the years and my grandfather's wit.
I FEAR: helplessness.
I HEAR: there's more to life than work and paying bills. I hope one day to discover that for myself.
I WONDER: why I always seem to have dark circles around my eyes - no matter how long I sleep.
I REGRET: holding back from so many people.
I AM NOT: Japanese, Chinese or Korean ... though some people would like to believe that based on my last name (which happens to be German).
I DANCE: like I'm J Lo when I'm a bit tipsy.
I SING: loudly in the car when no one else is around.
I CRY: once a month - typically sitting in my closet because I don't have anything to wear. (Silly, I know)
I AM NOT ALWAYS: So depressing sounding. God, this thing makes me sound like I should be medicated.
I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: loud popping noises with my fingers. Gets on people's nerves, but I don't realize I'm doing it.
I WRITE: much less than I should.
I CONFUSE: boys and myself and my poor parents and my friends ... honestly, I think I confuse most people who know me.
I NEED: a vacation (shocking, I know)
I SHOULD: focus more on now, enjoy single days. (ripped off Barry, who ripped it off Meegs)
I START: planning way before anything happens.
I FINISH: books very slowly.
