Split personality.

My god Natalie, get to the flippin point while we're all still young.

Here is the point:

I have dated tortured whiskey-drinking artists with long hair and tattoos, and I have dated corporate bankers with pressed suits and a taste for Sauvignon Blanc. I have loved both.

I have lived the artists' life (acted on stage, poured drinks in a bar, counted my pennies) and I have felt the excitement of pimping out my desk with pictures and flowers inside a corporate office.

I want to spend all my money on flippant, impulse-driven purchases, yet I frown at the concept and truly believe in the importance of saving money.

I want to sell all my possessions and travel the world - free and unchained - and, yet, I deeply love building a home with things, people and animals in it.

I have been on the verge of going overboard at a party and launched into internal debate about whether to stay and let loose or go home, watch a chick flick and prevent bedlam the next day.

I am responsible and yet prone to extreme irresponsibility. I quite like both.

I want freedom and children.

I want this blog post to end before 2047.

What about you? Do you feel you arrived in the world with one clear side? Or do you feel both wild and measured at the same time?


  1. There must be something in the air about our signs? I just posted about the 'new' signs that have supposedly some in to effect.

    I'd have to say I'm the latter; wild and measured at the same time. I like it that way. xx

  2. Oh I feel you on this one. I often have completely opposite feelings and goals and desires... which I am sure is very confusing for my poor husband and anyone else who is close to me. I just chalk it up to a girl's right to change her mind...


Thank you for your comment! X
