Got Bit - the memoir meme

Stewgad is my very good friend in real life, which means I never read her blog. It turns out that sometimes she reads my blog, so I feel a little bit bad about not reading hers. If she hadn't told me last night when I was over at her house that she'd tagged me for this meme, I'd never have heard about it.

The meme is the "six-word memoir," which as you may know by now is a challenge to write your life's story in six words. This meme is inspired by a recent book that collects people's six-word memoirs, called Not Quite What I Was Planning. I actually like that as my six-word memoir, but I'll try to exercise a little more creativity here.

But I'm still going to cheat. My memoir comes in two volumes, each with its own six-word title.

Volume I is Tried to Be Someone Else Entirely. Volume II is Gave Up, Followed My Heart Instead.

(Feel inspired? Haven't done this yet? Then consider yourself tagged.)

Exactly perfect, Innana!!! Man, you rock.

(And so don't feel guilty. When I said I read the blog "sometimes" that means like every 3 or 4 months or so. Sorry!)

Those are each way better than the 6 words I came up with for my own, which I haven't even posted yet because I keep hoping I'll come up with something better.

I kind of cheated wiht mine - I used an apostrophe to keep it to six word. =P
