When I first typed the title for this, I immediately thought of marriage. Two opposite minded people living under the same roof can be a circus. That’s not what this post is about though.
This is more of a late introductory post, and since it’s ‘Wordless Wednesday’, I felt today would be ideal for an informal post such as this.
It’s been a year and a half since I started this blog. Throughout that time, I’ve written on many topics. Most of them are serious in nature and full of emotion.
A person reading my blog would likely think either, I wouldn’t want to live with this lady or I feel bad for those who do. Like a light switch, I’m either up or down in my writing, and it can change within the hour. Also, depending on the day, I’m either motivational or critical.
However, there’s a whole other side of me than what you read here. The ‘me’ who people see face to face, is much different. For example, my mood is generally stable, and unless absolutely necessary, rarely do I ever voice my opinions, feelings or ideas.
I am somewhat serious most of the time, but also rather emotionless. Not much moves me. I’m not touchy-feely, a drama queen, or lovey-dovey. Maybe it’s the country girl in me. I grew up with manure on my shoes, dirt under my nails and spent my time playing boy-style. I certainly was not one into playing dress up, having tea parties or getting my nails done.
Of course, in high school some of that changed. I’m certainly more girly than I used to be, but in many ways I’m still that same girl. Similar to boys, I didn’t develop into the mushy type. Don’t get me wrong, I love to be loved and I love to show love. The problem, is that most of the time I don’t know how to. At least not face to face. Writing is great for that purpose!
I stink at romance. Being touchy is foreign to me and I can’t stand drama queens, which is why most of my friends have always been guys. Most females make me want to pull my hair out. How do you men deal with them?
My whole point in this off-the-wall post, is that my words on here, typically stay here. Most of these thoughts are not shared in my real life, nor do I express the emotions behind them. I’m not the sad, stern, opinionated woman that some may see here. Actually, I’m not quite sure how I come off to those who read this blog. All I know, is that I’m very different in my real life. This is my place to express feelings and share thoughts that I wouldn’t otherwise speak of.
Along that same note, although I’m serious around most people, there are a very few exceptions. With those who I’m comfortable with, I enjoy laughing, making jokes and acting goofy.
Being a stick in the mud might be okay for most of the day, but a girl’s got to let loose every now and then, and have some fun. I’m very energetic and love adventure. Bungee jumping, hang-gliding and parachuting out of a plane are all on my to-do list.
In other words, what you see is not always what you get. Very few people know all of me.
I wonder how many other people out there use this platform to voice things that they would otherwise keep to themselves. I certainly can’t be the only one.
