I’m not sure where I got this idea, but I like it. I call it ‘The Disclaimers’. Because, I am this or I do that. But it doesn’t automatically include me with something else. I addressed some well-known categories like ‘homeschooling’ and some that I just wanted to address because it’s who I am. If you like the idea, try doing it your self, or take one of the buttons I’ve already made. The program I used to make these is free and you can find it HERE.
There seems to be some idea out in the world that being a lady is terrible. And that being a lady must be such a burden and you must not know how to do anything. I love being a lady but it certainly doesn’t make incapable of anything!
I feel sorry for the people I come across who say that they only learned to like reading because of Harry Potter. I’m sorry, but if it takes books with witchcraft in them to get you like reading, well, that says a lot. That was not meant as a insult to anybody, I am only pointing out something rather eyebrow-raising. If you still want to comment with your outraged thoughts, please feel free to do so, but only with dignity and self control. 😀
This is very true. And I get tired hearing from people on and off the internet about how hard it is to do things in skirts. I’ve heard people say it’s impossible to run or work in them and it’s simply not true. My everyday attire is a skirt that drops down to my middle calf, and I can do just about everything in them. It’s true that if you wear more formfitting skirts that you can’t run very well; so that’s why you always want to wear loose, flowing skirts. Sure sometimes I trip on the stairs, but heck, I just have to remember to pick them up. 😛 Besides, I feel so feminine and modest in them. It feels good to know that I’m being modest in a immodest world and that I’m saving myself for my future Prince Courage.
This one is extremely true for me. I haven’t even seen a Austin movie, much less read one of her books. And sometimes it seems like I’m the only one who hasn’t. Thankfully, I came across THIS post that allowed me to know I wasn’t the only girl who had gotten carried away by the regency era. Again, no offense to anybody. I am certainly more open to the Jane Austin fandom than Harry Potter any day!
It might surprise some that, while I’m deathly in love with the Star War trilogy, I’m not a huge fan of science fiction at all. And often times I feel pressured to be a solid lover of sci-fi fiction and know all about it because of my claimed love of Star Wars.But, seriously, I’m not a sci-fi geek and I don’t want to be either. I’m content with just being a Star Wars geek at best. (I HAVE been called that in my face once! A friend at church just laughed at my Rebel Symbol necklace and said, “Star Wars Geek” right at me! Twas the best compliment I’d recieved in years!)
That wraps up my ‘Disclaimers’ post. I’ll probably make more as I think of them, so maybe a second post will come along eventually. What about you all? Do you often feel misunderstood or placed automatically under a category just because you like a certain thing or are a certain thing? Have fun doing a post like this, to let everyone know that you can not just be classified like everyone else. You are you and you are different. That’s a good thing.
