Wish I knew…

The basics are easy: I am female. I am thirty (which STILL shocks me). I am short. I have brown hair, brown eyes, and freckles.

Still more basics: I am married. We have a dog, who is 3 years old, and still acts 3 months old. We will soon also have a daughter, a thought which alternately thrills and scares me.

And yet more: I live in NYC, but grew up in the country; I like the latter better, and am constantly planning my escape from this concrete jungle… Which I have not accomplished in the 8 years I’ve been here, and likely will not until I’ve seen well over a decade on this not-so-little island. I am overly-educated but not necessarily all that smart; two higher degrees and yet often lacking in common sense.

Beyond the basics, well… that is what I am trying to figure out.
