the analytical mind

December 2, 2006 at 11:03 PM

Today I am going to analyze myself. Or try at least. I'm not sure how successful I will be but I will try!

Things I have realised about myself in the past 3 months:

I love snow and cold when it's NOT windy. This love for snow and cold ends when I slip and fall on ice and end up all bruised and bashed up.

I don't have to meet everyone's expectations of me, I just have to work hard and make sure that I'm satisfied with myself.

I will do my best to be prepared for auditions that are coming up (fast!) but out of the places I've chosen to apply, I am deep down ok and content with any of them. I just hope I get in to one of those places.

I like just about anything if it smells or tastes like coconut.

I love sparkly things.

I miss performing almost every weekend and am happy that the Christmas season has lots of performances for me.

It's easy to get lost and feel unproductive without weekly lessons to work towards and keep yourself focused.

I have some of the best friends I could ever ask for and I'm missing the ones who've left for school this year and I'm going to feel a little empty without them next year if I end up in Halifax.

I hate being incapacitated. It makes me feel like I'm useless.

I enjoy Christmas decorating.

I love the fact that I've got almost all of my Christmas shopping done.

I am thankful someone taught me how to do my hair with chopsticks, it saves a great deal on time.

I love taking pictures of anything and everything.

And lastly, I'm thankful to live in such an awesome country, surrounded by so many great people and I wish everyone could feel as loved and supported by their friends and family as I do and have the same opportunities.
