Monday Listicles

I am sitting and typing, wearing my wellies.

Because it is wet and rainy and I am suppose to go pick up the last of the strawberries and tomatoes. And I will, I will. As soon as I finish this. In fact it is one of the many things I realized have not changed about me in the last 20 years or so: I never quite finish one thing before I move on to the next. Wait 20 years? I meant 2, you know since I turned adult and all…

Which brings me to the listicles. I am really excited about this weeks topic. Christine suggested we write a list of 10 WAYS YOU ARE THE SAME OR DIFFERENT THAN YOUR YOUNGER SELF and I can just see all your lovely and poetic lists! Thank you Christine for a lovely suggestion.

Next week topic was suggested by Bridget from Twinisms and backed up by Brandee from One Crazy Kid

And then by Ellen from Sisterhood of Sensible Moms which was supported by Robbie from Fractured Family Tales

In case you are unsure, next week is : 10 HALLOWEEN COSTUMES.

But first, here is how some things changed and some remained the same about me. And you?
Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. I love spinach now.
Once grandma told me I am not to leave the table until I finish spinach that was side dish at lunch. She gave up and send me to bed 7 hours later.

2. I never talk on the phone.
I used to call my best friend as soon as I got home from school and talk for hours. And yes, we sat together in class. I must have used up all my minutes as a teen because I HATE talking on the phone now.

3. I never watch TV. Ever. Unless my friend Nola visits and we watch Justified together.
I had a TV in my room as a teen. MTV was on in the background all day. Again, must have burned my quota.

4. I love photography.
Some things never change, some loves grow every day.

5. I love outdoors.
Some things never change, some loves grow every day.

6. I love chocolate.
Some things never change, some loves grow every day.

7. I am still awkward around children.
I never babysat or helped anyone with kids and even after becoming a mom I am not naturally drawn to kids.

8. I still daydream.
I always imagined scenarios in my head and lived them out as a kid. Well I don’t act them out now but I still daydream all the time. Trust me when I run I am winning a Boston marathon.

9. I still color my hair.
In fact I have not seen my natural hair color since I was a teen. Imagine if it is the same as the one I pay good money for every month?

10. My name has changed.
Sure, I now have a different last name. But my first name is spelled differently too. Staša is now Stasa on my documents and Stasha in my everyday use. Confused? Me too, most of the time…
