in my own head...

in my own head...i'm not:
  • intimidating
  • exclusionary
  • snobby (ok, maybe a little)
  • prickly
  • clique-ish
  • confident
  • ponderous (ok, maybe a little)
  • brooding (ok, maybe a little)
  • harsh
in my own head...i am:
  • kinder than i seem
  • softer than i seem
  • less ponderous than i seem
  • not huggable
  • academic
  • domestic (at least the cooking part)
  • creative
  • innovative
  • intuitive
  • someone who follows her gut
  • always, always thinking
in reality....i am:
  • constantly analyzing
  • procrastinating
  • someone who has not used her time wisely
  • snobby
  • ponderous
  • brooding
  • looking for what's next
  • hoping
  • wishing
  • loving
  • real
who are you?

I yam what I yam
I am therefore I was
I am the walrus
Who indeed
Only the Shadow knows

That's a beautiful shot. Off to teach but your post has me thinking...thank you for the inspiration!

Tara Thayer said...

i'm someone who's going to hug you the minute i see you, someday!
so get over yourself.
nice pic.

I don't see you as ponderous at all. Brooding, maybe but in a good way (like sitting thoughtfully). Don't know about the snobbishness but since you've always been nice to me I'll say maybe not. I agree with all the good stuff (since I know you so well and all).
Since you blog you must be real though, and that's probably the important one.
who am I? I don't have a clue. It'd be nice for someone to tell me tho.

in my mind, i'm smart, hip and kinda sassy
i'm not, mean, cruel or unkind
in reality, i'm above average, mostly a dork, and sometimes passive
i can be, at times - especially when tired or cranky - somewhat not nice and often sarcastic

I'm with Tara on the hugging bit. We will meet one day and you can run but you can't hide. You'll get a big fragrant hug from me. So there.

You're a technosnob to be sure, and I know you have hold high standards for certain areas of your life, but I'm sorry to tell you that you embrace life with way too much curiosity, enthusiasm and relish to be classified a true snob.

hmmm, let me see...

in my mind: neither intimidating, harsh, moody nor possessive.
in my head: kind and brutally honest.
in reality: in the state of permanent longing :)

Just Jules said...

oh i need posts. Today is my blog like noone is reading day. I am writing and storing as many quality posts as possible. I am going to borrow this for a whole post. Thanks.

Preview- In my mind I am confident, in reality I am faking and questioning more than not.

In my own head, and heart, I'm 34 but in reality I'm 54.

Se'lah said...

julochka said...

Bonnie Zieman, M.Ed. said...

No hugs? I will ponder that!

Sandra said...

In my mind: tired, serious, aloof, kind, forgiving, academic.

In reality: tired, serious, sometimes aloof, often judgmental, but just as often arguing with myself over this trait, forgiving and less academic than in my mind.

bored.mind said...

My in-head is not at all my friend right now. Perhaps I can spend some time in yours?

Ju said...

That made us all thinking.
I wish someone I didn't know, could tell me exactly what I am, although that might hurt...
I am confused.

kristina said...

it's funny how you perceive yourself as not huggable. is that not wanting to be hugged? because you can be hugged, I know that :-)
in my own head... I am: bitchier than I seem
in reality... I am: procrastinator extraordinaire

kristine said...

i love this post. in my head i am really sporty and outdoorsy, and in reality i am probably not.

I love love love that picture. I like the light and the way the ladder goes up and down and the swing goes in and out.

It matches your thoughts so well -- except for the serenity it exudes!
