Who am I anyway? Identity Crisis Coming to a Computer Near You.

The whole world is witnessing my identity crisisI grew up in a time where there was no internet.  If you had an identity crisis, no one knew – they just presumed you “missing”.    Since I’m on lots of internet and social media sites  I realize I should rewrite every cyberspace bio, intro, profile out there . . .

DSCN6234 My first rewrite:  Former child star (I once was a child and being the first-born grandchild I was the star in the family) who gave up the limelight for a degree in English literature, traumatizing her to the extent that she never read another work of fiction for 30 years (skipped over high school years because they were even more traumatic).  After working in the banking business (I was a data entry person when teletype machines were cutting edge) she traveled the world (not the exactly the world but I did hitch-hike in Europe) . . . 

. . .  too wordy since so far I’m only up to my early 20’s:

Second try:  Former child star (gonna keep the star stuff – start off with a bit of dazzle to capture the reader’s attention) who quit being a psychotherapist to pursue her life’s dream and hasn’t a clue what that might be and is a bit afraid that if she knew she couldn’t afford it.  Keep reading her blog because when she knows what, who or why she is you’ll know too.

Maybe I’ll just leave all the bio’s and profiles as-is and let people think I’m the oldest psychotherapist on the planet – which might be a good bookend to being a child star . . .

  1. My advice: don’t worry about updating/rewriting all those bios/intros/profiles out there. Just toodle happily along as you wish, la-dee-dah, and you can end your days like those obituaries where the deceased is 90, but the obit photo is their last really good professional head shot from the 1940s (maybe a soft-focus black and white pinup look with thick dark curly hair and a ‘come hither’ sideways glance….) What do you think?

    • Carolyn,
      I think you are brrrrrrrilliant – but then I knew that anyway. Here’s the plan. I don’t want any false advertising so I’m going to get a glamour-shot – maybe something on a bear rug . . . I like the come-hither-sideway-glance a lot and I think that will look good on the bear rug (artificial bear, of course so no wild-life, including my own will be harmed).
