I am Alison.
I am short, not stout.
I am always doing doing doing, not so much being, being, being.
I am a mother. I am an insecure mother.
I am a rockstar on some days, on days when laundry gets done, toys get tidied away, dinner gets made and children are tucked in quickly.
I am abysmal on other days, when all these things get done, but I don’t feel accomplished.
I am a social media addict.
I am an ongoing learner. I chew up information and store them in my head.
I am a regurgitator of stored information in my head.
I am a rememberer of birthdays. Remember my head, the storer of all things?
I am a semi-perfectionist.
I am a writer of oxymorons (see above).
I am a full-steam ahead type person.
I am also a lose-steam-fast type person.
I am neither an pessimist nor an optimist.
I am a pragmatist.
I am a shopper of IKEA and all things on the cheap, because why buy a high chair that costs twice as much as an awesome easy-to-clean one from IKEA?
I am out of time.
