Who am I?

Eden from Edenland has set a challenge ~ Who are you?

Who am I?

I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. Sometimes I struggle to be any of those people.

Most of the time I feel like I’m still 16, in a 31 year old body, playing ‘grown ups’.

I got into Early Childhood Teaching at Melbourne Uni, but dropped out after a semester because I moved out of home and needed to work full time. I started the Diploma of Early Childhood Services at TAFE, but dropped out after a year. I completed my Cert. IV in Youth Work/Drug and Alcohol Work, but have never worked in the industry. I was accepted into a Diploma of Writing and Editing, but never started. I enrolled and paid for a Event Management (Wedding Planner) Diploma via distance education, and never completed a unit. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

I have been a vegetarian since I was nine years old as I don’t believe in eating animals. I would like to be a vegan, but can’t stand soy or rice milk, and hate black coffee.

I am scared of lightening and people dressed up in costumes. Seriously, Disneyland would be my worst nightmare.

I watch Neighbors religiously every night, and have for as long as I can remember.

I have had enough drama in my life to last another two lifetimes, and can’t stand people that feel the need to create drama. Just be happy. It’s awesome.

I hate confrontation, but will stand up for something I strongly believe in, even if I’m standing alone. If you hurt someone I love, I will take you down. And you wont even see it coming.

I am smarter, stronger and more messed up than most people assume.

I worked on Hamilton Island for three months when I was 22, and pretty much spent the whole time drinking and fooling around. It was a brilliant life experience, and made me realise I could manage outside of my comfort zone.

I can’t ride a push bike or swim.

I had only ever read one blog before I started this one. I never expected anyone would actually read my blog. And I’m not just saying that, I am still shocked.  Maybe I want to be an author when I grow up.

Who are you?

  1. Hahaha yeah that’s how I feel too! Still a teen in an adults body having to worry about stupid adult stuff lol.
    Also can relate to still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up… well up until this point anyway, actually think I have figured that out now.
    Very interesting to find out you can’t ride a bike or swim! Are you interested in learning?
    Enjoyed this post!

  2. It was lovely to see a little more of you in this very brave post. I wouldn’t be a teenager again for any one (far too many insecurities) but wouldn’t mind at all going back to my late twenties/early thirties when I was healthy and alive.

    I also know that some days I don’t want to fill any of my roles, and would like to crawl under the bed and velcro myself to the carpet. Sadly, I am a big girl now and I don’t do it. Haven’t done it. Yet.

    1. Everyone needs to hide away from the world sometimes, though probably on the bed, under the doona is more comfortable then under the bed. I have been known, odd the odd occasion to pull the doona over my head and have a good cry when needed ;)

  3. Oh I totally hear you on the ‘drama-creating’ people! Drama is not worth the drama – its much more fun to just love life :)
    And I too am still shocked that people read my writings. I find it such a bizzare concept!
    PS. I still don’t know what I want to be either x

  4. It was interesting to read this after having read your blog for a while – I learned a lot and it was lovely. :) You certainly have a knack for writing and it seems to be something you enjoy too. Keep it up!

  5. Love this post :)
    I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up either and I’m a few years past 40. I too feel like I’m just playing at being a grown up sometimes and I’m just waiting for the day that the penny drops! So good to know that there are others feeling the same way.
    Take care
    Shari :)

    1. Thanks Shari. Isn’t it funny how we are all wandering around, thinking everyone else is so together and ‘adult’, when really we are all feeling like teenagers on the inside! ;) xx

  6. What we *do* doesn’t define us, but rather wha we are. To me, you wanted to be a loyal, brave, content and principled person when you grew up. And you are. x

  7. You are a gorgeous person hun. Like you I hate drama OMG I despise it and I will go out of my way to avoid confrontation but look out if you hurt someone I love. I am 38 and I still have to idea what I want to be when I grow up. I kind fell into what I am doing now, it was never really planned, I just got caught in the current. The problem is I want to be so many different things. xx
