ImageSooo, it’s been a rough week.  That’s life, though.  Sometimes it feels like you’re on top of the world, and other times it feels like you can’t get anything right.  I’ve been stressing for over a week, but I’ve decided it’s time to let it go.  I make mistakes, other people make mistakes, and sometimes things don’t go as planned.  C’est la vie.

So this Friday night, I’m watching the History Channel with a glass of wine, catching up on reading all my favorite blogs, and relaxing.  While I’m sitting here (having a riveting evening OBVIOUSLY), I’m going to share some truths about me that you may not have known.  If you care to know what I’ve “confessed” before check out this post.

1) I’m a people pleaser- It reallllly stresses me out when I upset someone, so I avoid it at all costs.  I also avoid conflict.  Unless I have very strong feelings about something, I keep my opinions to myself, and I try to communicate them a way that is as inoffensive as possible.  Sometimes this works in my favor, and sometimes it drags me down.  I’m working on a happy medium.

2) I want to be GREAT at something.  I often feel like a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. I’m good at a lot of things (and really awful at others), but I don’t feel like I’m truly great at anything.  I sometimes feel like I’m constantly looking for that one thing I can be great at.  Maybe I’m too drunk on all the opportunities out there? (har-har, pun intended)

3) I drink wine by myself, and I don’t feel bad about it.  My roommate/boyfriend and I have different drinking styles.  I’m into having a glass of wine, or a beer- as dessert, or with a meal, and I can sip one glass for hours.  He’s more of a -have a few drinks on Friday night (also shot dice)- kind of guy.  So I often find myself with a glass of wine, drinking alone, while doing freelance work on a Tuesday evening. I like to think I’m channeling Tami Taylor.  I’m ok with it.

4) A small part of me still believes I might be President of the United States one day.  Obviously, this is not a realistic thought- I’m not in politics, I find campaigns to be super icky, and frankly it sounds like the worst job on the planet (so much stress – no matter what you do, someone will be angry with you)!  I just grew up with very supportive parents who told me I could accomplish anything if I worked hard enough at it. Soo- I believe a little bit that if that’s something I decided I really wanted to do, and worked my petootie off to accomplish it, I believe it’s possible someone might elect me for POTUS.  Maybe I need to see a therapist for delusions of grandeur?

So that’s what I’ve got for you folks!  How about you- got anything you want to let off your chest?  Maybe a belief in the extraterrestrial or a fondness for cotton candy you want to share with the crowd?
