Things I’m Afraid To Tell You

My life is far from perfect, as much as I may portray it as such on the blog.  It’s actually a a shitshow most of the time, and this post is my way to show you the absurdity that my life contains.  Thank you, Meg, for getting us bloggers together to share the things we’re afraid to say.  Here goes…

1.  I think about motherhood.  A lot.  Even though it’s a few years away.

2.  I don’t necessarily want to wait a few years to have our first child.  That gut feeling both excites and terrifies me.

3.  When I’m feeling overwhelmed, my first instinct is to run home to my parents, curl up in my favorite white chair, eat Taco Bell and watch trashy reality TV.  My second instinct is to shop.  Lately, the second instinct has been winning out – and my credit card has thus suffered.

4.  Sometimes, I wonder why certain style bloggers are so damned popular – when I find their outfits ugly as f*^k.

5.  I then wonder why my own blog isn’t as popular.

6.  I have a hard time being friends with people that aren’t a little bit awkward/nerdy/geeky.

7.  I judge people based on their wedding registries and their Facebook profiles – but I hope people don’t do the same to me.

8.  The people I love the most are also those that sometimes frustrate me the most.

What are some of the things you’ve been afraid to tell people?  Share in the comments below – this blog is a safe place!


  • Very interesting and insightful Hitha. I love posts like this that make you really think. And I love # 4 and totaly agree with you and well that applies to #5 too :)And I love #1 and #2 the best. Hope you have a wonderful week.

  • Melissa

    Re: #5 – I love your blog! Much easier for me to relate to than some of those that you mention in #4 (though those can be fun to read, yours make a lot more sense to most girls I think…).

    • Thank you Melissa! Are there any posts you would like to see? This blog, much like me, is a constant work in progress – and I love to help readers in any way I can. Let me know!

  • I judge people on their wedding registries as well. Looking back on my own, I would have been mortified! Good post!

    • Thanks Christine! I loved yours as well.

    I second Melissa’s comment. I read a lot of blogs, but you are one of the few bloggers I can relate too, because you keep it real! I like this post too…it almost encourages me to talk about things I’m afraid to share with others. BUT, unfortunately, I’m still not ready to publish them on a blog yet :-)

  • Ha Hitha! We are like the same person. I have the same feelings about having children and wanted to have them as soon as we are married (these thoughts waiver from day to day). I also whole heartedly agree with the whole bloggers whose blogs really SUCKKKKKKKK – I will not say anymore ;)

    I heart you and miss you!!

    • Heart and miss you too! Can we please have a date soon?

  • Number four made me giggle. I’ve read almost each one of these posts today and yours rung incredibly true for me in each and every way! Thank you for sharing, and I’m so glad I found you!

    • Thank you Jacquelyn. The feeling is mutual – your blog is beautiful!

  • I think EVERYONE feels the same way you do about 4 and 5!! The hilarious thing is I sometimes wonder if it’s the same publishers. Hm.

    Random: Last night I had a dream about being five months pregnant, S*#t you not. And it didn’t freak me out like I thought it would. It made me wonder what it all meant. So I feel you on #2, even if I still think we’re a few years away! Thanks so much for sharing these today :)

    • Thanks Victoria! I loved reading yours as well – especially the one about Zooey. Amen to that iPhone commercial.

  • I love you for #1 and #2!

    Totally agree with #4. And with #5, you probably have more readers than you are aware of. Chin up gf!!

    Also I am sure you were talking for me when you wrote #7 – I still can’t get over the one time I saw an egg-beater on a registry.. like WTF

  • Love the honesty.

    Having kids is not an easy decision but if you are thinking about it, that’s a good sign that you are ready! You can come to me when you want to vent about them. :)
