  • I'm friendly but have not many friends
  • I don't like talking on the phone, but I talked to my boyfriend for 2 & 1/2 hours tonite and last night.
  • I'm very very blunt and up front about everything. Doesn't seem like an astonishing discovery, but I always assumed I was so nice and beat around the bush. That is until this past year I've had numerous people tell me otherwise (although in a complimentary manor). Suddenly after they pointed it out, I noticed it all the time.
  • I GRADUATED BEAUTY SCHOOL !!! i thought i would never get out of that hell hole !! thank you baby jesus!
  • Fred, I give you points on your first question. Way to go dude. Is that you on your avatar? Actually, looks like Bill Clinton to me. I probably need to get my eyes checked. Like FreshApples, I am a nice person but have no friends. Oh well, one of life's great ironies. Another thing, I have become really philosophical in my old age. I try to see the good in every bad situation and not sweat the small stuff. When I was younger, I was a crazy person. I guess I am like wine, I get better with time. As long as you keep me on my side and my cork doesn't rot out.
  • I am surprised that I continue to do things for others, out of good faith, only to get called names at the end, and shunned. But the new surprise is I wont do ONE more thing for sick, twisted and selfish people.
  • Points for a deep thought question. Answer: That I get discouraged so easily and have turned into such a hermit.
  • I am very controlling. I have recently taken a personality class/quiz for my job and found out that I am an eagle. I am controlling and direct. I realize that this must be true because many things frustrate me when they don't go my way. I suppose that this could be learned/inherited as ALL the women in my family are "eagles". I also have found out that I have trouble dealing with hard problems. Each year for the past three or four years something happens that makes me recede farther and farther into myself. This I have found has left me with no friends besides my htb. It hurts, and I'm trying to self heal, but it takes time and as emotionally unstable as I am time is rough.
  • i cannot understand and discribe myself.
  • I am a very, very good liar. I'm one of the most honest people you'll ever meet, but boy can I tell a good lie. I just choose not to. I am also very good at manipulating people, and I can pin point a person's weakness very quickly, and use it against them. I just... don't. I don't want to be that way, even if I am good at it, so I choose to be me, which is nicer in the end
  • That after discovering what a terrible childhood i had i am still a 'normal' person per say, and am still capable of finding a way to forgive those responsible for my terrble childhood.
  • That I am now almost 52 and am still something of a teenager inside.
  • That I was able to cope with something that most people wouldn,t be able to. I,m more strong minded than I thought.
  • How really messed up i am.lol
  • My ability to tolerate not having time to do what I want, space to do it in, the energy to do it, or to know what truly matters to me. So, time, space, matter and energy.
  • Surprise-surprise---For me - I am a lady of 51 year's old, and I play - drum's ,sing and I am taking guitar,and keyboard lesson's - Never in my life, would I ever believe - I would be doing that at 50 year's old - My favorite are my drum's - and I taught Ballroom dancing, year's ago - And I still get called the Dancing Queen - I play drum's in a band now - And I simply love it.

  • That I'm still in school at the age of 30, after receiving one and a half graduate degrees ... God knows I almost quit high school and always hate studying and writing papers!!!
  • How my opinion and attitudes about women has changed radically (for the better) compared to how I used to feel/believe, although I understand why I used to feel the way I did. Oh and that I found love - never expected to and it has never happened to me before. Being a non-social person, I had resigned myself to not experiencing this phenomenon even though I didn't feel I needed it. I used to get sick of hearing about it EVERYWHERE ELSE throughout my life before it hit me. It really is the greatest thing ever.

  • i can't stay at one place not moving more then 2 seconds...
  • I never ever ever tire of beating up my car. It's not profound, it's not deep, it doesn't take much thought to understand. But I am constantly surprised by it every time I take my 92 Camry with a lowering kit on Class IV roads. EDIT, a couple months later: I am a resilient and strong woman. I will never be broken by anyone else. Also, I have a new car better suited to my destructive whims. :-)

  • That I am really great in a crisis. Clarity of mind and action. Clear all the shit out of the way and deal with the most important issues. I have seen myself (almost from above) assess and deal in accident situations, even as a child, go into autopilot and "solve" the situation with precise decision making when others are frozen or mentally collapsed around me. Strange but handy. However, just having dealt with a crisis I get the adrenalin rush and am fuzzy headed for a while and have been known to go and buy family and friends gifts to celebrate life from money I needed badly to pay bills. Oops
  • i eat a lot and im not gaining any weight...its probably because of metabolism
  • The fact that, with all I have seen and done in my life, I am not taking a dirt nap somewhere. Honestly.
  • i have confidance in me that i never believed i could have!
  • Honestly, I think the thing that surprises me most is my ability to give someone new a chance as far as trusting is concerned. I have been stomped on over and over and I always thought that I'd become hardened and unable to trust anyone, but when I meet someone new, I am actually able to give them a single chance. A single chance to prove to me that they are trustworthy! =) Not only this, but after I've gotten out of a bad relationship and feel I may never feel that way again about someone, I end up falling head over heels for another guy. What can I say? I'm a resilient lil' booger!
  • I am very matured for my age. My mates (usually 1 yr older) would be thinking of going to town and getting piss drunk, I would be thinking about driving safely and not driving when drunk.

  • how well i have adapted to all the different types of people and stereotypes in high school. it's horrible, but at least i got used to it.
  • That I wound up being the diciplinarian in my household. I'm still a kid at heart myself! I firmly believe in the 5-second rule and I frequently give both my kids "wet willys." And yet, I'm the one that winds up doling out the time-outs when things get dicey. Haven't had to do it often. Luckily my 5 yr. old seems to have developed a pretty good sense of right and wrong...and I don't punish curiosity.

I've never been one who's felt comfortable in the realm of emotions, but somehow I manage to be supportive to those who are.
  • I am a petite, mild mannered lady, but during my life, I'd say my strength (emotional and physical) has surprised me most.
  • That after 43 years I still have my sanity. Most of it anyway.
