Knitting Bug Bite Me

I have not knit since I snagged my Lily of the Valley Shawl.  I think it made me depressed to see all that hard work to go down the drain.  I will have to attempt another shawl with a bit sturdier yarn. But for now I have decided to cast on for a sweater.  I am going to make the Carter sweater by Drops Design. I switched for this and the Cobblestone by Jared Flood.  I think Cobblestone will have to wait since I would love to knit it with a gray ....grey ...slate colored yarn.      

Shelter Yarn in Soot

Here is my swatch of the Carter sweater. 

It is going to look great on me. :-D  I think the brown undertone will compliment my skin.

Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point

I am here.  I guess I have done pretty well for myself.  I still rely on my family a lot because I am …. how do you say floja…lazy. 

When I was younger I thought I would be married, have a million kids, and no career to call my own.  The perfect 50’s ideal. 

Now I just want to keep moving forward.  What is the plan?  Learn more and possibly move where I can challenge myself and my career.

Sound off on the quote “Every woman has the exact love life she wants”

I think it is true.  If you are not happy with your love life you have the power to change that.  Change your mannerisms, be more open or closed off, learn something new for yourself, and meet new people.  I admit I am a bit stand offish but I can play nice.  However commitment scares me so ha.

The biggest misconception you think people have about single life.

Some people look at a single person and think….what is wrong with them? They must have such a boring life.  I don’t feel that it is nice to assume something is wrong with a single person.  They have more freedom than a couple. Single people are not bored.  There is so much to do and guess what we get to decide to have a boring day because we choose to on purpose.  However I don’t see having a Netflix marathon as boring.

Your biggest fear as a single person.

I used to think if I didn't have a family that I would grow old and die alone.  However that stuff doesn't bother me anymore...

Maybe it is because I have seen so many people have wicked children.

I as a normal human being biggest fear is being captured by aliens and being tested on...just kidding.

Describe a moment or a day when being single was really awesome.

The best moment of being single is when someone asks me a question and I don't have to ask for someone else approval.  I always hear people say I gotta ask my boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, kids if they can do this or that. 

Well I don't have that problem. 

Also I love being able to travel on the spot.  Seriously when someone says want to go to such said place for the weekend I say SURE.  Or want to go away for a week or two to this state or country I say Just tell me when.

Well that is if I had the money I would jump at any opportunity to travel. And a travel buddy otherwise I would probably be stuck at a pub in Ireland right now fascinated not understanding a word.

Describe a moment or a day when being single really sucked.

I can't think of one.

I don't like when I want to go for a hike and I have to be worried that someone might rape me or kill me or do both.  But then I would just need a buddy to go with me.

I seriously can't think of one!

I can do dinner and a movie fine by myself. I don't get depressed at weddings thinking "oh poor me". 

I don't like to drive long distance but that's what friends, siblings, and my mother are for. 

How about this you give me an example of why being single sucks and I'll think it over and decide if I agree.

“And why are YOU still single?”

It could say I am an INFJ Perfectionist or Scorpio with my moon or sun rising from the west so my independence is most important to me. 

It could be that I was born on Halloween and brujas aren’t supposed to have a mate we just have that power of seduction. 

I could say I was raised by a single mother who literally kickbutt being a dad too (Seriously lover her and fear her at the same time) and taught me I don’t need a man to live. 

I could blame it on my passive aggressive nature and scared them all away. 

I don’t see the point of dating someone if when I meet them my instincts say “No I don’t want to marry this one so why give this person my time or energy.  It’s just a waste.”  I don’t mean to be so judgmental but I am a highly sensitive person.  Like my sister says “Ain’t got no time fo that”.

However I have to say if you want to be my friend I can do that which we know won’t work because I truly believe someone will fall for the other person.  And that kind of hope given to a person is like an anchor that crushes them right on the spot. 
But to be truly honest the answer is I don’t know. 

If I step out of my body right now and observe me I look like a great catch.  If I was a man I would be one of those confirmed old bachelors that young girls try to go after so they can be taken care of.  However if I am comparing myself to confirmed old bachelors I must admit I would be the Henry Higgins of them. I just need his bank account and his talent with languages and I would be a happy chap indeed.
In case you are not aware who Henry is...


So if you ask me the question why am I single just be warned that if I am feeling in a talkative mood I might just tell you what you don't want to hear.  Also please don't try to set me up with anyone...that is just creepy.

The Single Woman’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge

So I'm going to try another blog challenge.  My poor blog has been sitting here neglected for a while now.  I seriously feel like I have been on a creative dry spell. Maybe that California rain is magical.  However I think my writing will be a means to actively think over these questions and respond....and to avoid home/house/school work.
