Kvelling on Pride Weekend

The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent IBM's positions, strategies or opinions.

GLBT Pride and More

This month's theme and celebration inspires me to list what I'm proud of:
  • Pat and I have a positive, long-lasting relationship -- 18 years next month
  • Two summers ago, I agreed to adopt sister-cats, Phoebe and Toonces, not having grown up with pets, and apparently, they love us and are happy in our home
  • Our nephews and niece are fond of me
  • My mother, sisters and I are close, and mostly, we let one another be ourselves
  • My work and most recent schooling is dedicated to helping people learn
  • I've earned a 4.0 so far, and am two-thirds of the way through a Master's program at Columbia University's Teachers College while working full time...when I didn't even believe I'd be admitted
  • I am relatively athletic and fit
  • I blog and am able to express myself openly
  • Even if it's droll more often than I'd like, I have a good sense of humor
  • You can count on my honesty
  • I have color- and style-sense
  • Healthy eating has been a 20-year commitment so far
  • Even when my opinions or beliefs are not popular, typically, I speak up
  • Creativity, enthusiasm and bravery fuel my sense of possibility, which leads to a willingness to experiment and take risks
  • Pat and I have made a nice home together, which I enjoy living in and walking around.

You should also be proud of being a kind, thoughtful, and generous person.
