Who Am I?

One of my favorite bloggers, Emilie Ahern, posted the other day a list of things about herself. I loved this list. The list was like a sneak peak into her life and her believes. As I read through her post inspiration struck and the next time I sat down to scrapbook this page was created


Here’s my answer to Emilie’s list (due to spacing limits not all of these made it onto my final layout):

I am: Gretchen, red-head extraordinaire.

I think: that Barack Obama is going to be our next president.

I know: that nothing is more important than family.

I want: to go back to school.

I have: wicked communication skills.

I dislike: people who are happy in their ignorance.

I miss: the simpler times of being a college student and having less financial responsibilities.

I fear: that I will never have children.

I feel: like some days I’m just spinning my wheels and not making any progress in my life’s journey.

I hear: that if you do what you love then you’ll never work a day in your life. If that’s true, I need to figure out what I love to do so that I never have to “work” again.

I smell: coffee and oatmeal from my morning breakfast.

I crave: a better life.

I cry: every time I watch the tv show Ghost Whisperer. When the spirits finally leave this world for the afterlife it gets me. I had to stop watching the show because of it.

I usually: print my own photos because I love having control of the printing process.

I search: for ways to make myself a more patient person.

I wonder: what we’re going to do when my parents visit us next weekend.

I regret: some of the hurtful things I’ve said because I didn’t think before I spoke.

I wish: that I could figure out why I have such a hard time losing weight.

I love: scrapbooking, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

I care: more about what others think about me than I probably should.

I always: drink coffee in the morning. It’s my favorite morning wake-up.

I worry: about the big picture but I try not to let the small things get to me. Usually I’m pretty laid back.

I am not: sure why it’s taking us so long to make a trip to Chicago to see our new nephew. I’m anxious to see the new little guy in person!

I remember: how important it is to say “I love you” every night to Eric before we go to bed.

I believe: that scrapbooking is an important way to share myself and my life with future generation.

I sing: usually when I’m alone but if the mood strikes me I’ll sing in public.

I don’t always: wash my hair in the shower. It’s my secret. I’ll condition each time I take a shower but I don’t always use shampoo.

I argue: very infrequently but when I do you can be damn sure i t’s either something I’m passionate about OR you’ve really irritated the hell out of me.

I write: from my heart and about things that matter to me, in a style that’s like the way I speak. Yes, I really talk like this. If you met me in person, this is pretty much my conversational voice.

I win: most of the time when I play trivia games.

I loose: a lot of self-confidence when I have to spend time with women who are thinner and have more money than me.

I listen: to what people are saying so that I can tell what they’re feeling.

I am happy: because I am surrounded by l ove.
