I've got a bit of a problem here. It started niggling away at me a few months ago and has only now come into the light fully. I've got myself into the laughable position of sounding really noble/admirable on paper.
I'm a single mom(sob) who works nights to stay home with her daughter during the day. I live with my mom so that we can support each other in raising my daughter and her...three high needs foster kids because my dear dad has "issues". Also, I work at a group home with five boys who have been violently abused both mentally and physically and I go to school at night and write in the cracks of free time that I have so that I can "keep the dream alive".
Ah... How did my life end up sounding like some made for t.v movie that no one would really believe? I am not that girl. And, in the off chance that any of you might think I am that girl I am supplying you with a list of my blog-confessable faults to right that wrong. There are still some I really shouldn't post.
(In no particular order)
1. I don't like sharing dessert.
2. I think about myself more than anyone else.
3. I get excited about volunteering for things and then rarely follow through.
4. I pout when I don't get my way.
5. I get annoyed when other people are late even though I am always late.
6. I know shit all about politics. It bores me to death.
7. I swear unnecessarily.
8. I can't spell worth beans.
9. I get offended too easily.
10. I'm bossy.
12. I'm soooooooo impatient. Really.
13. I'm snobby about books and coffee even though I have enjoyed "bad" versions of both.
14. I require ridiculous amounts of encouragement.
15. I steal all the hot water in the morning and only feel guilty enough to convince myself I'm a nice person.
16. I'm not a very thoughtful friend.
17. I am easily confused.
18. I pick fights when I'm unhappy.
19. I have no patience with bad service.
Alright. So maybe it's harder than I thought to confess the really bad ones. But there. It's a start. Just trust me that there are much worse ones. Or ask my family. They'll fill you in real good like.
