I got this from Jen awhile ago. It's been one of those things I'd work on here and there—and now it's finished. I'm not one to "tag" people, but if you like it and want to do one of your own—have at it. If you don't want to do an entire one, just choose one "I" statement and add your sentance in the comments (like the Queen had you do).

I AM: multi-faceted.

I WANT: to live a happy and fulfilled life with my husband.

I WISH: I would have been more focused in college.

I HATE: it when a full cup of coffee goes cold because I was distracted by something else.

I MISS: being a student. If it wasn’t for the $ and time constraints, I’d be in grad school right now.

I FEAR: perpetually debt & failure.

I HEAR: the warm hum of the laptop fan and the ticking of the second hand on the clock in my office.

I WONDER: if I’ll ever stop procrastinating?

I REGRET: racking up the student loan bills when I was in college. Now I have this HUGE bill that feels like it will take the rest of my life to pay off.

I AM NOT: the same girl I used to be. I’m much more mellow than I was in college.

I DANCE: quite a bit, just not at the clubs anymore. I dance in class, in the house, in the car.

I SING: along with almost every song I know. I love to sing. There was a time many years ago that I karaoked, but for some reason I feel shy when I’m around a mic now.

I CRY: at the dumbest things sometimes. Like when Tony & Carmella split up on the Sopranos. I just like them together better.

I AM NOT ALWAYS: as nice as I could be (or should be). Sometimes I’m just a bitch—even though I don’t mean it.

I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: more than can be listed here. I mean really, what don’t I make with my hands?

I WRITE: lists all the time—To do lists, grocery lists, wish lists, etc. If it can be in list form, chances are I’ve made one.

I CONFUSE: myself sometimes.

I NEED: encouragement and praise just like everyone else. Sometimes that’s hard to get when you’re the teacher.

I START: each morning with a cup of coffee.

I FINISH: each phone call to my husband with, “I love you.”

Great list! :)

Jen said...

I like yours better than mine- I always seem to do those when I'm in a bad mood; even when I try to avoid such.

This took me awhile Jen. I think I've had it since you did yours. I'd come back and visit it every once in awhile. For me, I think that resulted in a broader range of answers.

Jen said...

I've been doing that with some of the more recent memes.

Tim said...

I AM: Drunk right now so I will read and comment tomorrow. I promise.

Nice list.

Perpetually in debt shouldn't be a fear...heck, that's mostly realization.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Very nice list, I like it! :)

Dave Morris said...

The one about coffee reminded me I have a full cup - and it is almost cold, ironically.

:) thanks for reminding me not to waste the java.

Tim—you lied.

Mike—yep, a big realization. Just wish it was a smaller realization.

Mr. Fab—thanks.

Dave—I hate wasted java—especially when it's the last cup in the pot. Microwaved coffee is awful in my opinion and the last thing I want to do is nuke the last cup of joe. Enjoy it while it's hot.
