// Today I ironed the hem of my dress with a hair straightener because I don’t own an ironing board, and my iron is sticky from craft projects because I’ve never used it for it’s intended purpose.
// My sink is full of dirty dishes, my dryer is full of laundry that needs folded, I haven’t cleaned my bathroom in
weeks months and I only cook when I’m having company.
// I eat frozen waffles everyday for breakfast. I hate vegetables. I’m currently eating lucky charms from the box, and calling it lunch.
// My workout routine today was swinging at the park because I wasn’t motivated enough to drive to the gym.
// I’m terrified of the dark. When I get nervous I stutter and forget everything I know. I don’t go to the dentist because I’m afraid of the water they squirt on my teeth.
// I cannot spell. Even one little bit. I live in constant fear I’m going to be asked to spell something on the spot with out spell check to help me out.
Isn’t it strange that I have a bachelors degree, and am designing a book for a professor at Washington University? How is it that I get to assist in teaching a class this summer at Maryville? How is it possible that I have so many bills in my name, and am somehow paying them with relatively few late payments? Weird how I can successfully keep a large rich house clean and running smoothly, complete with a healthy home cooked meal every night but when I come home, dinner is popcorn and my clothes are all wrinkled. How am I such a fraking grown up when I feel so small. Why do I feel so intimidated by others around me, when I myself am doing rad stuff? Why am I staring at my wall, afraid to create, too nervous to put words to page for fear they are not adequate?
I will not fearfully lay on the couch and watch Greys Anatomy all day, wishing I was awesomer. I’ll just go be awesome. Armed with a box of marshmallowy goodness, I’ll make stuff. I’ll think thoughts. The stuff I make will be top notch. And my thoughts will be deep and… thoughtful.
(full discloser: those flowers in the photo above? I killed them. Be cause my thumb is any color besides green, probably black)
