About Me! If You Care. And If You Don't.

PROMPT: Dust Jacket

  1. Three communities to which you belong (these can be unusual). Not to go into it too much, friends spy group, Bible group(summer), book group.
  2. Three places you learn well (these can be unusual). Kitchen at midnight (best!,) yes when everyone is asleep! next the basement, then, my room.
  3. Three adjectives your peers would use to describe you. Umm, maybe, "easy-going" and yet "evasive" and at the same time "energetic." Not really sure there.
  4. Three adjectives your family would use. Oh, my. The people who know me best! First I would say "clumsy" because they see all the walls I run into, chairs I fall out of and stairs I fall down.(did that last one on Saturday.) Next "opinionated" not in a bad way, but I'll stick to what I think through anything, crazy or not. Lastly "ambitious" or maybe "overambitious," haha. But I do surprise them a lot.
  5. Three adjectives you would use. Well, let's go with, "passionate," (very, as my family would tell you.) "Impractical." Yup! My dreams especially. "Loyal." I try to be at least.
  6. Three beliefs you hold.   I believe in God, law and order, and that all lives are sacred and to be protected.
  7. Three sources of comfort.   Books, writing, sunsets.
  8. Three instincts that serve you well.   I've literally never thought of this.. The instinct to protect, the instinct to be quiet and to be careful about who I trust. Are those even instincts? idk.
  9. Three responsibilities you shoulder.   Summer business, my dog? and let's just say, dishes.
  10. Three things of which you are proud.   America! My Family. Faith.
  11. Three qualities that make your life singular and/or unusual. Having over the usual amount of siblings, not wanting to go to college but buy a house and write to live, crazy? idc. Well, I don't like the effect on the economy but I actually liked quarantine a lot. Not so stressful. ya know? and so nice and quiet..kinda.
So that's a little about me. Not much and not sure it's very good but there you are!

    Re: I'm not super crazy about Mr. Rochester, actually. He has great character development, but it took me a long time to get to like him.
