Heather invited me to be Derfwad of the Week over at her place and I said yes, because I like and admire Heather and I think very highly of the community she has created in her little corner of the web.
So I am picking out a photo or two and writing this little piece about myself today and I'm struggling with how I present myself. It is difficult to find the right tone when it comes to talking/writing about yourself. I am writing honestly about who I am and what I believe but I am leaving out a few of the less shiny details.
So, in the spirit of full disclosure, here are the less shiny things I am leaving out:
I am socially anxious. I have a temper. I am a notoriously bad housekeeper. Until very recently, I did not own an iron. My desk is usually a mess. I have a compressed nerve in my neck that I have to treat pretty gingerly. I have forgotten almost all of my college Spanish. I watch Glee. I struggle every day with writing and finding time to write. At present, we are being tormented by a couple of rogue mosquitoes that found their way into the house. I am a little bit in love with my smart phone.
Okay, I feel a bit better now. Carry on.
