Things About Me That Are The Same As Always:
I drink a V8 from a can with a bendy straw every morning.
I read storybooks out loud.
I get irritated easily.
I clean house to Mary Poppins songs.
I like to build Lego towers.
I like epic novels and commercials that make me cry.
I like scary movies, and show tunes.
I always remember the words.
I hang out with my parents every weekend.
I like to realize the things that have shaped me.
Things That Are Different About Me:
I started drinking coffee (a lot).
I started running (sometimes).
I started eating an apple a day.
I think perhaps I'm less cynical (but no less irritable).
I left the dream job that I had for fourteen years.
I started my own business with my sister (today).
I realize that I have yet to be completely shaped.
I think it's all those apples.
I just bit into something.
And now I just know.
Like when Donny hammered the first nail in his nose.
If he can do that, then I can do this.
And that's how I'm different.
But the same.
And glad that I'm not doing it alone.
Because my sister eats lots of apples, too.
