Conundrum

Why is it that when I'm less busy, I don't post as much on here? Maybe because I don't have as much to write about. I've just been enjoying my summer before school starts. Now I have less than a week to go! I still have to buy my books and get some new notebooks.

I was thinking about it recently, and my personality is really a mystery. I have at least two completely different sides.

I really love old fashioned things and dresses and roses. I like to fix my hair and wear pretty earrings and high heels. I like to learn about historical fashion and sewing. I love the manners of the Victorian era and the delicate flower arrangements that had meanings. My favorite books are by Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen. I like to curl up on the couch with some hot tea and watch Wives and Daughters.
That is one side to my personality.

The other side is why I'm a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I love action and adventure. I want to travel the world and learn to ride a motorcycle. I want to go skydiving. Some of my favorite music is Christian rock and even rap music. This half of me would wear Converse hightops, not high heels. I read the Alex Rider adventure series and futuristic scifi, and watch things like The Bourne Identity.

How do I have so many different interests that I can't even reconcile them to each other?

There are other things that I really like that don't fit into either category. I like BBC's Robin Hood and I really get into that type of adventure. The clothes, hooded cloaks, bows and arrows and castles and swords.
Then when I am in a writing mood I like fingerless gloves and sitting in coffee shops and wearing sparkly fingernail polish and fuzzy slippers.

I can be a completely different person depending on what mood I'm in. What about you? Do you have any seemingly incongruent likes and dislikes?

Goodness, goodness. I am JUST like you. I know exactly what you mean, here.
For starters, I love feminine, vintage things. I love dainty things. I love watching old movies & curling up with tea. I love dresses & flats, and I love looking like a lady.

Then something changes from time to time. I want to wear jeans & converse. I want to paint my nails black! It's crazy! I think it's good we have this--i don't know why. Although no matter what I don't really like rock or rap, I know what you mean. I want to skydive, etc. It's weird syndrome! But that's okay, I think we all have it ;)

I'm like that too! Part of me loves flowers, tea parties, sewing doll costumes, pretty dresses, watching Jane Austen movies, and reading Bronte. The other part of me loves sea stories and swashbuckler books, fencing, taking long walks in "bad" weather, and wearing Converse shoes and denim jeans. And occasionally, I even enjoy yard-work. :D

I think everybody's personalities conflict and seem contradictory, that's what makes us interesting! I don't think anyone's as 'in character' as we expect fictional people to be :-)

Enjoy the last of your holidays!
