No more self-deprecating remarks.
I do this far too often. I don't know why it happens. Perhaps it stems from a fear that the world will find me a conceited snob? And, while I do believe that this is a genuine reason, I also believe that many of us are self-deprecating to a fault.
Why are we so concerned about how others perceive us? I have a bunch of fabulous friends (not to mention family!) that are probably going to be stickin' around for a while. They all accept me regardless of my faults. So, why not be content and be as much of myself as I can?
So, no more, "Yeah... Isn't it sad how much I like Star Wars even though I'm a girl...." For God's sake! I love Star Wars! As a matter of fact, I freely admit that I am an avid lover of the fantasy holy trinity: Star Wars, Lord of The Rings, and Harry Potter. And, I will not say it as though I think it's a bad thing. (This sci-fi t-shirt is hilarious and I want it soooo badly.)
From now on, I'm going to do my utmost to avoid tainting my words and attempting to appear a particular way. Nope. I'm just going to state the facts-- pure and simple.
