10 things, all about me

1. I'm quiet and shy in new situations and around new people. I tend to be self conscious and cautious. Give me a few drinks and that stands to change pretty quickly.

2. I'm loyal, sometimes to a fault, but I've been known to hold a grudge. I'll forgive but I just have really hard time forgetting. Sometimes when I'm not looking those old grudges creep back up.

3. I think everyone should be allowed to marry whoever the hell they want. I don't care if you are white, black, gay, straight, midget (sorry, little person) or a jolly green giant. You love who you love and you should have the right to stand in front of the people you care about, the god you believe in and make whatever promises you like. It should be legal in a court of law and it should be accepted and celebrated by your peers. Plain and simple. It's love, I believe in it and I always will.

4. I'm a hopeless romantic (in case you can't tell from #3) and I believe there is good in everyone. Being hopeless doesn't make me a fool, sometimes even though there is good in everyone, there's just too much bad to make it worth it.

5. I've never done an illegal drug in my life but I'm all for legalizing marijuana. Tax the hell out of it and make some cash just like cigarettes and alcohol. Let's face it, it's probably the healthier option anyway. No, I have no research to back me up and I'm not going to go find any. Legal or not, I'm not smoking it, but I'm not so concerned about you smoking it in your own home.

6. Sometimes when asked what my best trait is I reply with the fact that I am excellent at seeing both sides of an argument. This is very true and while it's one of my best qualities it's also one of my worst. It's hard to truly get passionate about an issue and feel 110% confident in your argument when you can totally understand where the other person is coming from. If I don't get involved in a debate, don't take it as me not having an opinion. I'd just rather sit back and listen.

7. I love to write. I'm not a particularly great writer, I'm probably never going to publish anything but I love to write. I used to write in journals and I feel like I need to get back to that. You'd think this blog would be updated more often, wouldn't you?

8. I like being happy, I like looking for what is good and focusing on what I have rather then what I don't. It's who I am, it's how I get through every day. There are about 300 things I wish I had or that I wish I could do differently but if I sit around and dwell on those I'm going to miss what is GOOD and what is going on right in front of me. On the days I really just don't see those things...on those days, I write. And I drink. A lot. Luckily those days are fairly few and far between.

9. If I had the motivation or the brain power I would go back to school to be some kind of counselor. I don't have that kind of motivation or brain power so I'll stick to just playing arm chair shrink to my friends.

10. I still don't know what I'm going to do when I grow up. I try to picture my life in 10 years...with teenagers in the house...and I can't imagine anything but my grocery bill (so clearly I will be working 3 jobs to feed 2 teenage boys)

I don't do mimi's or blog hops much anymore...but if you want to post your 10 things, let me know and I'll hop over and read.
