I am bo-ring.
I've been happily painting away at my grandmother's maritime style drafting table. Most of her stuff has either a lifesaver, a crab or a Chinese dragon on it. Sometimes all three.
I have also been reading the book "POWER Optimism" as was my mother's request. I now know that I need to relinquish my rock of negativity so that my garden may grow.
Ok, after reading some of this book, I think people misinterpret honesty for pessimism. I am honest(sometimes unnecessarily melancholic), but not always pessimistic. Truthfully, I believe things usually work themselves out. Sometimes to my detriment, as I tend to let things go for a while thinking that someone else will eventually smooth out my ruffles. This is what the author calls "Pollyanna Optimism" in the book. I think that's funny.
This is very similar to my "peel my orange" outlook on life as quoted in blog entry no. 549. I am also v. big on free-will and believe strongly in choices and interpretive freedom when it comes to your own life. I'm not a "glass is half-empty" kinda gal, I'm more like a "why should I care about the glass when I can drink straight from the carton?" kinda gal. Or a "why are you asking me this during S.V.U.?" kinda gal.
I drink fancy sugar-waters anyway, so I don't really pay much attention to those glass vitrines of old. What kind of water you ask? POWERade. and SMARTwater, and SEXUALLYTALENTEDsmoothies.
