A Procrastinating Perfectionist Who Is Also Introspective

Hi! My name is Deb, and I am a procrastinating perfectionist who is also introspective. I’m also an avid photographer, ’70s music junkie, and writer.

“A penny for your thoughts.”— Make that proposition, and you’d better be ready to hand over a boatload of pennies. Like many folks, I’ll give you my “two cents,” but only if you ask—hence, the name of this blog: Two-Cent Hyperbole.

Being prone to introspection my brain is continually clicking. Contemplating, analyzing, creating, reminiscing, etcetera—it’s my “brainwork.” My inner speech is constantly chattering at full speed, deliberating the information and conducting internal audits. Luckily, however, when the volume of my inner voice cranks up, I crank up the volume of my favorite ear-candy music—the ’70s.—Did I also mention I’m a procrastinating . . . ?

I’d like to say that being introspective means I’m quick witted, but it’s just the opposite. I suffer from a case of “after-wit.” So, I write. As a writer, I can take the time to play with words and phrases to create an interesting and sometimes witty blurb. I prefer writing to verbal communication. I can envision myself as “answer-jobber” (a person who earns a living by writing answers) on relationships. My tagline would read “From the euphoria of Cloud Nine to the gall of breakup bitterness,” and I would include photographs from my collection at Sunday Artist to add a visual component to my written verbosity.

For now, my intellectual property is an open house, and I invite everyone, from the coffee culture type to the couch potato with a cup-holder cuisine habit, to browse this ball of wax. But remember, when leaving a comment, it’s not cruel to be kind.

A penny for your thoughts. . . .

“You refuse to trust your own intelligence. You’re confusing education with schooling. Education is the acquisition of knowledge. The definition of knowledge is knowing, familiarity gained by experience. Wisdom is defined as the possession of experience and knowledge. Being experienced, you, therefore, have education, you have knowledge, and you have wisdom.—You’re brilliant!” —Quote from the 1958 movie “Teacher’s Pet” starring Clark Gable and Doris Day
