This Is Me

A recent Irish Times article, listed the regrets of the journalist during the Boom Time of the last few years. I have my own little list, but it’s not one of regret, it’s a list of things I’m proud of:

I cook the best lasagne you will taste; I get lots of compliments when I wear a short skirt but dress for myself and no one else; I’m a huge sports fan and chances are I know about it than your boyfriend; I’ve given up ‘a good job’ to go travelling, on my own; I stand up for myself, even if no one else will; I’m a very good friend to have on your side; I can drink bourbon until the cows come home still be fine the next day; I went through with a Gorge Swing from 55m over Victoria Falls; I’ve kissed boys I wanted to kiss; I moved out of home at 17; I own a pair of 5inch heels and regularly wear them; I have the biggest collection of books I know and all of which have been read; I’ve never been afraid to say ‘Fuckit’ before doing something I really wanted to do; I’ve had life changing moments, moved on and learnt from them; my cats know how much I love them.. and so do my family; I’m never rude but I don’t put up with patronising people or bullies; I painted my apartment myself; I always bump into someone I know; I’ve been in love and I’ve been in lust and right now I’m happy to just be me.
