This week’s Tuesday Topic is: Five words to describe yourself. You can write about this topic or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to link up with Kim and Zenaida! Visit at least two of the other linked posts – the more the merrier! Remember to come back for later linkers!
I began writing this post on Sunday. Not that I don’t spend time writing my posts for my other topics, but this one took me longer to write. I am not saying that I had so many words and it was hard to narrow it down to 5, but it was hard to actually come up with 5 words. Why is it easier to come up with 5 words for someone else than it is for us?
This is what I came up with:
I am a social introvert. You might not believe this but I am a shy person. For the most part I am a quiet person too. I am comfortable in a group of 2-6 people. More than that and I’ll probably take a raincheck. I like being alone but sometimes do want the company of other people.
I think this comes from being independent. I don’t like to wait around for something to happen. If I can get it done, then I will do it. Many times then I will become overwhelmed because I want to do it all. I also know that sometimes it is because I want it to be done MY way.
I love this about me. There is nothing wrong with having someone there with you or helping you, but for the most part I do many things on my own. I remember being a sophomore in high school and knew I wanted to go away for college. I was not the first one in my family to go to college, but I was the first one to go away. Man, that was one of the best things I ever did! More than 20 years later and I am still very independent.
I word hard. I have a strong work ethic. I remember spending hours and weekends on various projects when I worked at the bar association in Chicago. Then I became a teacher and you know how that is going. Many more hours and weekends working on lesson plans and activities for my students. Then this pandemic made it even more interesting when I had to come up with a different way of teaching. It is never ending and no matter what I do, work will always be there. Yes, I am hardworking but I also find a balance to relax and have fun.
This one was hard to write! I am not referring to it as what I look on the outside, but instead on the inside. This word sums it all up. 🙂 I hope everyone that wrote about this topic also picked this word. You are all beautiful!
