I want you and me to be friends.
I'm NOT talking about Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, Tumblr, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon, Klout or any of the other social spaces. You don't need to subscribe to my blog, you don't need to leave me comments, you don't need to bestow an award on me. I just want you and me to become (better) friends.
Of course, that means we really need to get to know each other. So I've decided to start candidly sharing stuff about myself. And if you'd like for me to get to know you better, I invite you to share along with me. You don't have to be a blogger to participate and even if we're already good friends, I hope you'll still share with me. If there's a specific question you'd like me to answer next time, just let me know.
When I was a kid,
I loved pink more than any other color. I would always reach for the pink markers in Sunday School. And what I was coloring didn't need to correspond to the color pink either. I would shamelessly color in trees, flowers, animals, and clothes all in pink. I'm still a big fan of the color, although now I tell people my favorite color is blue. I'm not sure if that's true.
When I grow up,
I want to be novelist who isn't afraid of writing. When I was in high school, I would brazenly write any story that came to mind and they flowed so easily. And they were good. Now, I struggle so hard against my fear of writing the wrong word or sentence. I like to blame college professors, but it's really a confidence issue and so I guess what I really want is more confidence in me.
I used to love
- Star Wars
- Max & Ermas
- Pontiac Grand Am's
- Chick Fil A
- Ina Garten
I still love
- Star Trek: The Next Generation
- Firehouse Subs
- Lap Swimming
- Johnny Depp
- Anne Hathaway
There's one thing you should know about me,
I'm always feel insecure walking into dark rooms. Maybe I watched too much Murder She Wrote or I have an over-active imagination, but I always search for a light before entering a room. I prefer to think of this as a self-preservation skill, but it could very well be a phobia.
So tell me...
What's your favorite color? And do you harbor a secret desire to become something else? Or any secret phobias or fears?
