Ok, yes…i post-dated this entry.
I was going to try to be slightly deceiving and act like i posted it late last night…but i couldn’t.
Lying is not something i like to do.
. . .
Day 8: Describe the good, the bad, and the ugly about yourself. . . .Well this could go a bunch of different ways couldn’t it?Let’s get started shall we. …The Good:~I care about people, a lot. I’m always investing myself in someone/someway in hopes that i can help. ~I like to smile, a lot…and i’ve been told i have a good smile. Meh, it’s alright i guess.
~I like to clean…which makes for a tidier house and less stress.
~I love hanging out with teenagers. I like investing in them, encouraging them, building them up, and help guiding them from making mistakes and to make good choices across the board.
~I’m honest, sometimes to a fault, but i’m never ashamed to tell someone how i feel.
~Just like the first one, i care about people, a lot. This is a double-edged sword and it gets my heart in trouble a lot.
~I can be a little bossy. Ok, i’ve been known to be really bossy sometimes. I think it comes from being a first-born, type-a, independent personality. I learned at a young age that change is constantly happening and you have to be dependent on yourself.
~That honesty….yeah more of then than not it’s confrontational. I don’t think confrontation is a bad thing AT ALL, i think it’s all in how you approach it. I’ve gotten better at confronting lovingly.
~I ruin pictures…constantly.
…but apparently it runs in the family, and my brother and I both ruin pictures.
~When it comes to projects/DIY, i jump around a lot. Some rooms could probably be completely finished if it wasn’t for me jumping around to different places.
~Also, i make duck-faces way more than any human being ever should.
~When i get angry….i get angry. I get this fiery look in my eyes, my hearing lessens, and i feel my body temperature go up a few degrees. It isn’t pretty. It does take a great deal to make me hit that point (deceit, back-stabbing, etc), but once i do…please avoid me.
~I’ve been known to say some hateful things. When i hit that point of super-upset some things just slip out of my mouth. I’ve learned that words really hurt and i have gotten so much better at controlling what i allow to come out of my mouth and how i re-act. Now’a’days i do my best to pause, think about what i feel i need to say, and then say it instead of just spitting it out. I also do my best to seek wise counsel (if time permits) before responding to someone.
~I can be a little bit of a control freak sometimes…again this is a trait i’m working on.
~oh my gosh this hairstyle when i was younger. I had it all the time, and i wish someone just said, “no, stop…you’ll thank me later”
Hot right? not.

I admire you so much for being able to deal with teenagers! I have a short fuse with them (namely my younger siblings and their crowd of friends). However, it would have been so cool to have someone older than me there to guide me when I was a teen! Kudos to you for being that person 🙂
I love teenagers too! I think we must be special people, because that doesn't seem to be a popular opinion. 🙂
Haha- I kind of love the hair from the "ugly" section!
Woah, way to be super honest here!
Crazy how some of our strengths can also be some of our greatest weaknesses. 🙁
Bwaaaahhahaha, I love that you "ruin" photographs. Nothing wrong with that!
I'm printing off the last picture and framing it. Amazing doesn't even begin to define it lol 🙂 <3 great post, friend.
I have the same habit of saying hurtful things when angry. I have gotten better with age.
