Things I Like About Myself

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

  • Keep my nails short
  • Almost always honest & straightforward
  • can make jokes
  • am finally, finally, goddammit, learning to listen to other people
  • hold on, this is supposed to be a self-affirming list
  • am basically pretty
  • so why don't guys hit on me
  • is it because I'm married now
  • no, it didn't happen even before I wore the ring
  • stop it stop it stop it
  • pretty good metacognition
