Second verse same as the first

Do you know what I am?

I’m a person with a smorgasbord of widely annoying and quite dreadfully irritating qualities: I talk way too fast, and way too loud, my laugh is exaggerated and borderline nauseating, I interrupt during conversation, I finish other people’s sentences, I tell the same story over and over again, I’m unfashionably late, I’m harshly tone deaf but sing anyway, I get lost, I worry about things that don’t need worried about, I’m the queen of good intentions, sometimes I fail to follow through, etc., etc., etc.!

I also tend to gravitate toward consistency. It comforts me.

It’s the reason that I used the exact same calculator in my freshman math class as I did in my college statistics class. It’s the same calculator I use today; and I will continue to use it until it breaks or I lose it. The calculator does nothing but adds, subtracts, multiplies and divides. My statistics professor recommended that I invest in a new, more advanced calculator. I didn’t!

It’s the reason that I keep a dayplanner. I started keeping my first dayplanner in 1998. I was sixteen years old and a sophomore in highschool. I will continue to keep a dayplanner.

It’s the same reason that I try to blog semi-regularly. It irritates me to be inconsistent and to have a huge gap in my bloggy journal.

And it’s the reason that I’m going to repeat “30 pictures in 30 days”. I love more of the same. It makes me happy. It seems consistent. So for the month of November I will be posting a picture a day for thirty days just like I did back in April. And, just like I will do again in the future. Because I’m me. And consistency is one of my qualities.

I would love for you to join me if you wish. Do you want to? Jenni?

And in the meantime we will be pacing our lovely abode awaiting Halloween.

Number 1: That is the cutest picture ever! I love that little girl.

Number 2: I think we are clones in many ways.

Number 3: I want to do this, however, not in November. I need to pick a month that isn't so busy, because if I was too busy and skipped a day...I wouldn't be able to sleep at night :) Consistancy (aka OCD) is my game too!

I just might join in on the fun again. We'll see come Nov. 1.

I'm excited I loved your "30 pictures in 30 days." I would join you but a quality I lack is consistency. I'm okay with it though because I feel it makes me really pliable, but I secretly wish I was more consistent too.

The things you say make you annoying, are the qualities I love about you! :) I admire your goal and your consistency. You go, girl. Cute pics!
