Who the hell do I think I am?

Good question, self.

The truth is, I’m still trying to figure that out.  I thought I had most of it licked, until reality decided to give me a swift kick to my metaphorical balls halfway through 2010.  Instead of being the 30 year old boasting about how it’s nice being comfortable with yourself, I’m now the 31 year old who has no idea about anything and being labeled with things like “depression” and “anxiety”.

Things I do know:
·       I’m a Capricorn
·       My Myers Briggs Type Indicator is ISFJ
·       I avoid conflict like the plague
·       I use clichés like nobody’s business
·       I’m an Admin Assistant/PA
·       I easily become obsessed with things
·       I can justify spending money I don’t have on anything I want
·       I enjoy writing lists in bullet form
·       I’m unfit
·       I could stand to lose about 4 kgs

I’m writing this blog for a few reasons:
1.     It’s been a tough year and I would like to work out where I am going
2.     I need an excuse to write, and this seems like a better option
3.     I need to try new things to get myself out of this funk, and writing about them is like making a commitment to myself to do this

The internet exists for acts of self indulgence, right?  I’m happy to be part of the masses.


  1. Hi Sim,
    You have a blog! Congrats on jumping on the blogwagon. I like your list, and I can relate to many of the things you mention. Especially the one about avoiding conflict. I tend to run for the hills whenever the potential comes.

    It can be useful to put things down in writing, and getting other people's opinions can be a good reality check sometimes. They are not always right, but getting a second opinion at least challenges us to think a little more.

    Looking forward to your next post!


  2. I appreciate how honest you are about where you are in life and how hard it is to be depressed while still "maintaining" life. I have B.P. Disorder II and completely understand the daily struggle.
