A Bit About Me(Me)~ In Which One of the Adjectives Attacks Me

by Gwen


It is time once again, to step out from behind the book and get to know one another better.

We all have a story and a life beyond the book and thanks to Danielle from There’s A Book, we get share. She asks the questions and we get to answer.




This weeks question- What are three adjectives to describe you?

I hemmed and hawed about this one all week. If I say that I am “X” will they think that I am stuck up, crazy, boring? If I say “Y” do they know that I mean it this way and not that way?

That little back and forth went on all week and then it hit me. I was being attacked by possibly the worst adjective that I have on my little plate of a brain-OVER ANALYSING EVERYTHING.



This is me on a daily basis. Should I go to buy Diet Coke now, or should I wait until I know what we are making for dinner. (in case we need something else from the store)

But I need Diet Coke now, I go crazy without Diet Coke. I wonder if Coffee would work?




Coming up with that adjective was so emotionally draining that I had to call in for help on the other 2.

ME: Art, name three adjectives that you would use to describe me. 

Art: Silence.  Pensive        Silence. 

ME: It shouldn’t be that hard for you. If it is negative, I can take it.

Art: Creative? and you just made one of those faces at me, you are also animated.


So there you have it, I over-analyze everything, I am creative and my boyfriend says that I am animated.  I am choosing to define the word animated as lively, outgoing and vigorous as opposed to some sort of cartoon character. I guess you could call me expressive and it would get rid of all of the visions of the Coyote scrapping with the Road Runner in your head.

On the other hand, it is sort of cool being compared to Wile E. Coyote…..Genius
