How I Identify Myself.
I'm watching a short documentary called In Unison. It's a unicycle documentary.
- •I heard this line "And then pretty soon you start to identify as a unicyclist."
- •I thought "Well sure, I identify as a unicyclist."
- •And it got me thinking about identity. For some many people identify is tied to sexuality or race or religion.I'm not trying to take away from that at all. But I think we all identify as many things.
- •I do identify as a unicyclist, but as many other things as well. Some are:
- •Unicyclist.Here's a list about my unicycles: ME and My Unicycles-a Love Story
- •Juggler.I can juggle balls, rings, scarves, clubs, other junk. I can do three four and almost five balls. Five sort of.
- •Reader.In 2014 I read 56 books. I ALWAYS have a book going, often 3 or 4. Here's a link to my blog about that: https://sites.google.com/site/yearroundshorts/blog/2013readinglist
- •Speed Cube SolverRubik's Cube. I'm slow, but enjoy trying to better my time. I'm down to under two minutes sometimes.
- •Dang Funny Guy.I am almost always the funniest person in the room, in my normal life. I suspect that a LOT of people on The List App identify as the funniest person they know as well.
- •Bread Baker.I make really good bread. I've been baking bread for 30+ years and am pretty decent at it by now. I still flop one now and then, because I take chances, hoping to improve.
- •Other than sexuality, gender, politically or religiously, how do you identify?
- •Interesting question. I identify strongly with being a Gen-Xer, a child of the 80s, a devoted aunt, southerner, a homebody, and with being perpetually single.As well as being funny, smart, and fat. But those are more descriptors than identities. I'm not a fat activist, for example. But my size does color a lot of my interactions in life.Suggested by @jhope71
