    Ok, I will jump right in...

    If I could change something about myself, it would be how d*mn sensitive I am. I have ALWAYS been like but that is something that I cant stand at times.

    There is nothing wrong with having a soft spot but geez!

    I have gotten better but I still feel like I am quite sensitive.

    I cannot tell you how many freakin times I have cried during this planning process...

    UGH!!!

    I cant do just one,lol.... But I will do TWO.

    My nappy hair, oh geez, its so thick , and my stylist loves it, me on the other hand, not so much.

    2. My inability to react sometimes before I think about the consequences. This is my biggest fault.

    Tys- Your sensitivity comes from being a woman and a mom. But I know you couldnt imagine yourself being harden?I love having and expressing emotions, dont change.

    If I could change anything about me, it would be my attitude. I can hold a grudge from now to Judgement Day and still know what you did. It must be due to the fact that I'm an Aries!

    I would change how sensitive I am. I take everything way too personally.  I'd also like to be able to play the game better.  I'm lousy at keeping my emotions to myself.  If I like you, you know it.  If I dislike you, you know it.  Not being able to put up a mask and knowing when to wall off my feelings and put on a fake face has been a serious problem in my life. 

    ***rodeo***there is nothing wrong with holding a good grudge.  I'm a big grudge holder.  If you wrong me why should I forgive and forget?  I MAY forgive eventually but I will NEVER forget.  Grudges are our minds way of saying remember this person hurt you before watch out for them.  :)

    What I want to change about my self is to become more of a "go-getter" , and less of a "dreamer". I want do my thing, but then I get scared and don't follow through.

    If I could change something about myself I'd want to be a quicker thinker.  I hate when I get into a situation and then afterwards think of a million better ways to have handled it, or a million wittier things I could have said. 

    I think I love internet chatting because I can think about things a little bit longer and really say what I mean, and not talk in circles to get my point out. 

    If I were changing looks, I'd love to have longer nail beds.  When I get acrylics on I always make them start the airbrush (or white acrylic) up higher then it should be so that my nail beds look so much longer.  Kind of a weird thing to think about, but I do.

    I would love to not over-analyze & critique everything. I take what folx say and read so much into it.By the time I'm done, I've added my own lil spin to things and taken it to a whole nother level.

    Stack, i did the same thing with the nails on my right hand when I got acrylics.

    My left fingernails are fine. The right ones a fat and short.

    Glad to know I am not the only compulsive-nail-weirdo. LOL!

    I've always thought one hand looked better than the other too!  LOL.  Wow, this post makes me feel lots better!  (as I glance down and see my non manicured nails halfway grown out from acrylics) BARF.

    I would like to be more assertive in certain work/personal situations.  For instance, I just had contractors doing work on my house before I put it on the market.  I always try to be "nice" to them but they don't seem to respond well to that b/c twice now they have completely ignored one of my requests.  I always say I'm going to be firm/stern next time we talk, but then I end up being nice again, thinking that will encourage them to get everything done.  Vicious cycle!

    Okay I'm going to take a different route.  If I could change one thing about myself it would be to be about 15-20 pounds lighter - I know very VAIN.

    Same here...except maybe 10 pounds. I'd tighten the tummy and add some boobage.

    I'd stop being such a procrastinator too...things always get done, but always last minute.

    Stackeye, I was going to say the same thing.  I constantly kick myself for not coming up with something witty to say. 

    I love what Off has to say about grudges.  That's so true.

    The other thing I would change about myself is not worrying so much about what others think.  I've actually considered taking my wedding dress back because my mom doesn't like it.  But I love it, so screw what she thinks.  RIght?!  LOL

    Ok, here goes, I would become a morning person.  I struggle in the AM but find I am so productive when I start early.  Since finishing school, I have not even thought about waking at 4 or 5AM.

    Physically, I would def make my butt, um, sit a little higher, have a little more, um, roundness, remove fat from my waist and put it in my breasts.  I am not paying a Dr. to do this, so it is a what if...
    @TamTam- Girl, keep your dress!!  You have to wear it and be happy in it!!!

    Rodeo-its not just you doll...my zodiac sign is leo (the lion) and baby I don't hold grudges-I create "everlasting" shyt lists.

    One thing I would change about me is my: directness. I am trying on a daily basis to be some what passive before responding.

    I'm perfect, ladies, can't help you here! lol j/k

    I'm inconsistent. That's pretty much it. Started out with studying vet medicine and had to stop because my mother passed and had to learn how to survive. Tried pharmacy but I am chemistry-challenged. Went to IT where I take it like a duck to water but my passion is medicine. If I had unlimited money and time, I would keep taking chemistry until I passed it and got med school. :(
