- I've always looked younger than my age. It was first commented upon when I was around 10 years old. Unfortunately instead of seeing this as a blessing, I've always been uncomfortable with it because I think people don't give me credit for being the mature person I am. (Don't laugh!) When I was assistant manager at a library branch in my late 20s, I remember eyebrows being raised when the circulation staff would bring me over when someone asked to see the supervisor. I looked like a teenager then. I've tried wearing my hair shorter and dressing in suits, but nothing helps. I'm destined to look youthful. Eventually, this is going to be wonderful. I would have thought it would be by now but no, not just yet.
- I can't stop biting my nails. Yes, I've tried. Over and over. I've had friends offer to take me to a salon for a manicure if I would only stop biting long enough to grow my nails out. Hasn't happened yet. Any suggestions?
- When I was in a country music phase, I was crazy for George Strait.
- In my college days I once attended a Whitesnake concert.
- I hate opera and ballet. They are too high culture for me. Refer to #3 and #4 if that seems hard to believe.
- I've secretly been obsessed with Jon and Kate Gosselin this summer. And the tabloids aren't writing all those articles just for me!
- I once had a boyfriend who enjoyed going to tractor pulls. Those super noisy events are the ultimate in boredom (after opera and ballet, of course. Just kidding). Surprisingly, that relationship didn't last. Oh, the noise my ears would have had to endure if we'd only made it work.
- I'm afraid of guns but I did learn how to shoot one several years ago. Target shooting was kind of fun, but overall I still don't like them!!!
- I haven't read all the classic literature you would expect a librarian to have.
- If you're still reading this, I'm amazed because who would be interested in all these confessions? But if you've persevered with me, here's my big secret: Wearing hearing aids has taught me that the world is just too noisy and loud. I prefer my private, quiet world better. I long for a hearing aid that will amplify the voices and sounds I want to hear and keep most everything else muted. Until then, I will continue to wear my hearing aids selectively.
