Thanks for the vote of confidence, Venus.
I'm sure I'm academically up to par, it's just figuring out how to squeeze in the necessary work that's the challenge.

Be who you are. To thine own self be true.


Gemini hippie-chick catlady Jesus freak feminist you're-not-the-boss-of-me? You mean like that?

I found one thing in sobriety. Labels are horrible. I mean, sure we all have quirks and personality tendencies. I don't know about all these mental health labels, though. Humans are quirky. I should know, I live in the land of quirk. I love that about the PNW; It's just plain weird here.

When I was drinking I was much more mean-spirited, though. I used to say, "Just kidding!" a lot - to smooth over one of my snarky comments. I think it was a way to be one-up on people. I don't really like that about myself and I try to be more gentle and a tiny bit more humble. It's a process though. Just yesterday I had to argue that someone was wrong - of course thereby making me right. *sigh* That was my 10th Step Inventory. I'm not even in AA, but I do see the value in the steps. Selfishness, that is the root of all our problems...(or something like that, right?)

*Ring *Ring.

Good to see you Nonsensical


They say going into space makes you taller, i'm guessing that might not be permanent.

Disabled people rightly complain that our London Underground (rail network) originally built back in the late 19th Century, is extremely user unfriendly to them. I now have a slightly better understanding of what they mean. I turned my ankle at work, it is not serious but it is painful to walk on so I thought I would leave work early to avoid the worst of the rush hour. I am really glad I did, without full mobility I really felt like I was getting stampeded, more than once too. Glad to be home.

Weird! Is that a thing? Does that happen to other women too?

Many years ago I lost a lot of weight and my feet went down two sizes. My body went down five sizes!

Thanks Dee. In the weekend. Day 10 today. All I want is to stay sober right now......who I will be if I keep this up, who knows. But who I want to be? Calm, kind, generous, brave. Not looking for much....obviously.

Hi, weekenders.

Who I want to be.....Hmmm....Relentless, unstoppable, not being afraid to take risks...

I'll think about it more.

Badge, if it's of any consolation, I am 5'7, and I still manage to find like 1,000 reasons to hate my reflection in the mirror and my looks overall.

I think this quote is from Steven Pressfield's "Turning Pro': "The Daily Show reported recently that scientists in Japan had invented a robot that is capable of recognizing its own reflection in a mirror. "When the robot learns to hate what it sees," said Jon Stewart, "it will have achieved full humanity ".

Hawkey - Thanks a lot for wise words and the poem on the previous thread. A have a lot of thinking to do about what hold me here. But, honestly, almost nothing.

See you, weekenders.

Yes, you will get shorter with age and your feet will get bigger.

Still beats the alternative.

I want to be the woman I am now....I want to nurture her and help her to grow into every single thing she can be....I want to create my art and write, and look after (as a carer) as many elderly people as I can...

I want to be a great wife and step-mother. I want to be a good sister.
I want to learn to be as good a chef as my mum was.

I want to grow the business Nick and I are building...we are excited.

I want to fill every day with all of the ups and downs, the good and the not-so-good that is life....I want to feel every bit of it.
