Friday theme


It probably sounds really vain, but the person I most want to be like is myself...

I want to think my own opinions. I'd like to say by myself, but then I do want to be influenced by other people, because otherwise I might as well be a hermit. Sometimes I would like what I think to be static, finished and stable, but then I reckon if I get new info and change my opinion, that is actually a better thing than stubbornly sticking to something I have learnt is wrong. Perhaps what I want is to think!

I want to wear what I like without trying to wear things that look cool on other people but look awful on me, or make me feel uncomfortable. I want to wear my hair just exactly the way I like it, rather than worrying about what anyone else thinks (I'm pretty good at this one, at the moment I'm looking a bit like a floor mop as I grow it out again).

I want to have more spontaneous outdoor adventures (and planned outdoor adventures too). I've got out of the swing of this, and miss it. It's a part of me that has been abandoned in the last few years. Babies, neh?

There's a part of me that needs to learn how to draw. Its getting an airing after the thesis. Cos there is a part of me that I've found that is a bit gentler on me, and doesn't try to do everything NOW, without any rest or relaxation! I'm glad I found that bit, it keeps stress levels manageable.

I don't know that I am ever going to 'be cool' but as I get older I am getting better at being me, recognising me, doing the me thing - and that IS cool.
