I Am...

I AM: passionate and persistent, small but strong, someone who puts my foot in my mouth a little more than I should, not afraid to be who I am

I SAID: “You want me to write it down? What do I look like?!” (while getting lost in VA), “"I’m still in the sink” (while texting at the hair salon), "Right now my pinky toe and my big toe feel like they are being held for questioning... 'I swear I don't know anything'" (after walking around in a pair of too small stiletto heels).

I WANT:
Peace in my life and for those I love, and not much else.

I WISH:
I could fix everything that’s broken and take away others’ pain. (big dreams, I know… but they’re supposed to be…)

I MISS: Midnight rides on 3rd avenue with my girls eating food in cars parked outside of peoples’ houses like we’re concealing a crime. Holding my sweet little step-daughter to-be in the pool (the only time I can actually lift her up). Not having to pay bills – but who doesn’t?
.
I HEAR: The sound of 5 economists working in close quarters: nothing but pages turning and keys clacking (mostly mine).

I WONDER:
What my crazy black lab and fat boston terrier are doing right now.

I REGRET:
Getting so worked up sometimes. In the end, it’s rarely ever worth it.

I AM NOT: One to hold my tongue when I know the answer.

I DANCE: Not as much as I used to but whenever I can.

I SING:
While my fiance’ strums his guitar and I scribble out lyrics that don’t quite work yet.

I CRY:
When I can’t take it anymore.

I AM NOT ALWAYS: As strong as I’d like to think I am.

I MAKE WITH MY HANDS: the best meatballs besides my grandma, “Ma.”

I WRITE: Whenever I need to get something out of my system, good or bad.

I CONFUSE: others? I dunno… myself sometimes. When I look at a map definitely.

I NEED:
A driver’s license and it’s about time.

I SHOULD: Start waking up earlier in the morning. I’m such a bum sometimes.

I START: At least 10 projects a day.

I FINISH: Every book in about a week, except “Just Exchange: A Theory of Contract (The Economics of Legal Relationships)” blahhh

I LOVE: with all my heart and no hesitations...

I TAG:
KC and Corry, Kristin, Audrey, Pia and PinkLetterLaw

You are so sweet to care about the concerns of others. I'm sure we all think some or most of those things. I hope you have a great summer. Queen of Arts and Breaking Culture will be volunteering at a Bible camp in Oregon. Will your wedding be soon? I enjoy praying for all those we blog with, so I'll keep praying for you. God bless.

I love your sense of knowing yourself and being able to relate that thoroughly to others. Your list really caught my attention. I found myself inspired and intrigued.

Good stuff. Thanks.
