Day Thirty

Who am I?

I know this question is meant to be deep and insightful. However, in any writing class you'll ever take, you're taught the composition cliche: show, not tell. I think the whole point of this 30 Days exercise was to show you who I am. And now at the end that's all cast aside so that I can tell you. Weird.

At any rate...I am a 24-year-(and 364 days) old single girl (that's right; I will not call myself a woman) living in Salt Lake City, UT. I'm a procrastinator. I'm a lover of books and music. I'm overly critical of others' spelling, grammar, and general intelligence. I'm not critical enough of movies--I like almost anything I watch. I am someone who complains about being busy when I have too much to do, and I complain about being bored when there's not enough to fill my planner. I hate Sunday nights more than any other time of the week, because they mean the weekend is over. I love to text message. I'll admit that I often hit ignore on incoming phone calls not because I don't want to talk to the person calling, but because I'd rather text them. I don't feel as old as I am. I tend to be unrealistically optimistic. I generally assume the best about people. If forced to subscribe to a political party, I'd claim Republican. But I genuinely loathe partisanship. I think Americans are too critical of the leaders we elect. I also think we're too lazy as a population to effect change ourselves. I like to think I'm a pretty good listener. I drive too fast. I used to be great at keeping a journal, and now I'm lousy. Maybe I should make a resolution concerning that. I'm bad with money but good at giving. I dream of living back East but don't think I could ever permanently move away from my family. I like club sandwiches, Dr. Pepper, and oranges. I dislike pretty much every vegetable. I cry a lot, laugh a lot (though almost always silently), and roll my eyes a lot. I think I'm funnier and smarter than I actually am. I forgive easily but let my barriers down slowly. I don't like change, and I prefer to not make new friends. I love doing makeup and hate doing hair. I'm usually tired. And, as if you couldn't tell from this gigantic paragraph, I talk too much!

And that's who I am.
