Me, myself, and me

Since I've already been sharing stuff about myself, perhaps I'll put it all in one place and be all formal and crap. Smile

I think I've mentioned that I'm 31, married, live in Idaho, have a cat named Winnie the Poof, a golden lab puppy named Inara, and no children because we can't. I graduated in December with a post-technical certificate in Office Occupations, but have not yet been able to find a job. This leaves me a lot of time for reading, surfing the net, playing Wow (Arathor server), and worrying. My sister-in-law and her fiance currently live with us, but will hopefully be moving out in August.

I have been described as having a "forceful" personality, and yet find myself being a wallflower until sufficiently disturbed. I am often in a state of irritation that sparks into anger from time to time - which is much better than the raging temper I've found myself with until the past year or so. I also suffer from a terrible case of righteous indignation on behalf of a lot of people and things. It can be hard to get me to talk, but once I start I don't stop easily either. I love educating people about things (such as the discussion on infertility below), so long as they are open-minded. If you stop being open-minded, I'll stop talking because I won't tolerate your intolerance...yes, hypocritical I know, but it's stressful for me. I will answer any question posed to me, but be sure you want to know the answer before you ask. Should you ask, and should you not like my answer, I will thank you in advance for not flaming me.

I often find myself thinking I'm odd or unusual in the way I do/think/feel things, and then I come across a place like this where I feel at home. Not because I'm like anyone else, but because we're all unalike and yet fit together. Smile

"If you stop being open-minded, I'll stop talking because I won't tolerate your intolerance...yes, hypocritical I know, but it's stressful for me."

I agree and I don't think this is hypocritical of you, either. There's simply no point in wasting your time and energy on brick walls. People who cannot discuss things in a mature, rational, and open manner drive me BATTY, and I've learned the hard way that they keep thinking what they think while I feel all butthurt. So not worth it.

Rock on with your opinionated self.

I remembered seeing this quote online and went back to find it! I often find myself arguing the contrary point, or in a state of righteous indignation. It's a good thing, even for the people the argument is directed at, because everyone needs to be challenged now and again. It's healthy.
