50 childish things i do

in the wake of leaving john, i’ve been thinking about the beginning. i’ve written before about the first time we met in person, but i didn’t reflect on his first commentary: he said i surprised him by being so childish (childlike?). i’m not at all sure what about me gave him this impression, but i’ve been thinking about it, and compiled a list of possibilities. call it a cop-out post if you must . . .

1. i make up songs, and i sing them to myself all the time

2. i make mischief

3. i’m terribly curious, and like to ask a lot of questions, including “why?”

4. i skip

6. i hide my face when i’m in trouble and when i’m embarrassed

7. i avoid confrontations and trouble at any cost

8. i’m demanding

9. i pout when i don’t get my way

12. i seek praise, and avoid displeasure

13. i cry out of frustration, not just out of pain

  1. Hi,I just stumbled across your blog for the first time, and I love it! I have a little girl side to me–in the last year or so, I’ve embraced it more and more. I read your list and was nodding my head in agreement…I see so much of myself in it! I’m plowing through your archives now, and have linked to you.thanks,J

  2. lg,#’s 34 and 43 don’t strike me at all as ‘childish’. They come off as more go get ’em, full grown-up. What child loves new clothes?But i have to empathize with #50. I’m hate being alone too.

  3. J,welcome to my little world! i’m so glad you like it. i love that feeling of finding a new blog that captures something about myself. please enjoy with my compliments.deity,#34 (badass-ness) is childish the way i see it. i always wanted to be the girl that could do anything (maybe because all my classmates were boys). and #43 (clothes)! my god, you should have seen my wardrobe as a child – i had more frilly dresses, smocks and tights than any little girl far as #50 goes, thank you for the correction 😉 but i really do hate being alone.
