My Bi-Polar Personality: The Teeny-Bopper vs. The Granny
I had the realization today that most of the characteristics of my personality fit into two catagories: Teeny-Bopper and Granny. Rare is the part of my personality that actually fits into my real age bracket. I had this realization as I was thinking about my favorite hobbies: family history, crocheting, baking, drinking tea, crafting, traveling...the list could go on. I sound like a grandma for sure. An AWESOME grandma, of course. As I was giggling over this coincidence, I also thought about how I feel mentally/emotionally so much more like a teenager. Even though I technically got my drivers licence in high school, I rarely drove and never had a car all through college. I've really only been driving for like 2 years, and all through college I felt so much younger than everyone else, just because everyone else had their own cars and had been driving for years. I've also never had a boyfriend, never been kissed, etc, etc., so I feel very underdeveloped and maybe not even at teenage level as far as that aspect of life is concerned. The only books I read are young adult books or old classics. While my music selection is much more complex and diverse that these two categories, I do have quite a few teeny-bopper songs (like JoBros, Tokio Hotel, Sonohra....) and a few granny songs (classical music, opera). There are stuffed animals on my bed, like a teenager. I also go to bed uber early, like a granny. I'm no where near a real career yet, despite being a mere year away from my 30's. Yet I've managed quite a few spectacular experiences in my life, like traveling to lots of amazing places, that usually only come to grannies. I'm sure I could keep the examples coming, but it turns out it's past my granny bedtime!
