Week 0 for LJ Idol has arrived, and the topic is Introduction.

Should be easy enough, right?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

I want to write something catchy. I want to write something that will make people laugh. Make people understand my depths. Make people want to follow me.

But.....I don't know if I am that person anymore.

I mentioned this on my Book of Faces and a friend said, “There’s your intro: “Hi, I'm looking for me. Shall we find me together?”

So. Me.

I am a housewife who devotes her life to the ideals of Donna Reed. I love baking, cleaning, cooking, and making sure my husband's needs are met before anything else. My life is full with bake sales, church luncheons, and teaching poor Guatemalan slum children to appreciate the gifts God has given them, gosh darnnit.

No....really......

I am a Pagan, Meat Eater, Humanist, Pro-choice, Pro-gay and trans rights (all gay and trans rights, including marriage and being treated as human beings), Pro-capital punishment, Pro-guns, Anti-racist, Anti-sexist, Hate the war, Support our troops, Pro-alternative forms of fuel/power, Anti-oil lobbyists, Sanders supporter.

I am a medieval recreationist with dreams of grandeur.

I am Anxiety. I am Depression.

I am a precious stone with flaws.

I am someone who has dreams of entertaining people with my writing.

Welcome! Pull up a chair, have a cup of hot tea, and let’s find out what else I am.

You really said a lot with so few words. I really like Bernie Sanders, too. I'm still hopeful he has the power to influence the state of the country even though he's no longer running for President.

I think finding ourselves is an everlasting journey. I may mostly think I know who I am, but then I'll learn something new about myself, or someone will have a conversation with me, or I'll read something, that'll help me find a new perspective.

True. I've found recently that a lot of people I know have very different views of me that I never considered. It's odd finding out that people think of me as a Mama Bear type of personality.

A lot of my new perspectives came from playing Idol in the past, because it gave me an opportunity to meet people from so many more different backgrounds. I was really grateful to find that.

We do! Medieval research and re-creation being only a small part of the things I relate to in your post (SCA for me)...

I'm truly looking forward to seeing the similarities and differences in our take on topics! :)

This was a fantastic intro :) I especially liked the "I am a housewife..." fake-out.

When I see the phrase "housewife" I automatically go to the joke, "how do you marry a house?"... :)

You are a congregation of contradictions! Well, I guess most of them are left -- but you left two big righties in there that throws the wrench in the monkey.

I am a precious stone with flaws. ... I *love* this.

Good luck!

Nice to see you back! And the little mousling in the icon.

I am a precious stone with flaws.
I think this is true of so many of us. Precious and 'perfect' are not the same thing, and we so easily forget that.

Good luck for this season :)
