The "About Me" section of the blog. For days now, I've been "racking" my brain trying to come up with interesting things about me for you, the reader that doesn't exist yet. But, I had an epiphany this morning...by compiling a list of things about me for you, I'm really helping myself define who I am and what I find interesting about myself. At almost 35, this seems more logical than trying to sell myself to other people with fun and interesting tidbits about myself. Approaching this section (and really, the whole blog) as a self-discovery project speaks to me in a way that I didn't realize that I needed until now. Facebook is great, but this is really a place for me to speak my mind in more than a 50 character status update.
The minister at my church (and mind you, it's a UU church, so pretty darn liberal) challenged us to write our own obituary a few months ago. I didn't do it, but maybe defining who I am now and maybe even how I'd like an obit to be written in 50 years versus the way it would be written now (worrier, yeller, overplanner) is another way to go about it.
The 30's are an interesting time in life. The stupidity of the 20's is behind me, but yet I still am not 100% sure who I am like I envision people in their 40's are.
