The Things I Am, Try to Be, & Am Not

"The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance; the wise grows it under his feet.” 
– James Oppenheim

I am:
+ a creative person who feels both limited by her life & that her opportunities are limitless
+ a girlfriend who can't get enough of the man she loves
+ a person who likes being alone sometimes & sometimes that's ok
+ getting used to this thing called living together
+ a skeptic

I try to be
+ patient, for everything take time
+ less of a complainer even though complaining is easy
+ more organized.  Everything has a place, I just have to keep it there
+ a better cook

I am not
+ the greatest coffee maker
+ a dweller.  Things happen, we must move on
+ able to decide on a blog design for myself, ever.

Who are you?

  1. I love this idea for a post, I might have to borrow it myself. I'm still getting use to the living together stage a year in!

  2. I try to be organized to, but we live in a rental and things are still in boxes and stacks of clothes are on top of them. And I never pretend to be okay with it because it's driving me nuts.
