1 - I have and may always have, a mental illness, but I genuinely believe that I am still entitled to a full and amazing life, with children and goals and a career and anything I want!
2 - I am a committed Christian who struggles to belong to a Church, because I believe in evolution and because I believe the way the Church treats the LGBT community and other minorities is unethical and un-Christ-like.
3 - I am an advocate of unschooling. If you ask me how 'homeschooling' is going, don't be surprised to see me blush, stammer and try to change the subject. I don't know anyone else who is unschooling, so it is at times lonely and frightening. Please don't arrest me, or take away my children.
4 - I am a staunch feminist, and yet I am sometimes so ashamed of how hairy I am that I struggle to leave the house.
5 - My kids play on the computer or XBox for HOURS at a time, and yes, I permit it and yes, they are learning stuff from it.
6 - I have tattoos and piercings, and I plan to get more. I love them. Deal with it.
7 - I am a hippie and I parent my children gently and I am a homebirth advocate and yet I am also a proud and Fearless Formula Feeder, and were I to have more, I would feed them formula too.
8 - I love blogging, and writing, but I also feel like it's just one more arena in life in which to feel isolated, alone or left out.
9 - I say rude or inappropriate things at times, because I am trying SO hard to hide the fact that I am hurting.
10 - I may love you dearly, but I have zero energy to spend time with you.
Do you find it easier to write things down than to say them? What do you wish I knew about you? Thanks so much for stopping by! Love and hugs
