my mom once told me that i am "the shallowest, deep person" she has ever known. curtis put it in a more flattering light, "you are like a diamond - turn you one way and it's all 15th century writers, and then turn you another way and it's all about fabulous shoes". they are both right. i am tempted to say that i know it's tragic, but you know what? it is not tragic! :) i am a whole human being, and whole human beings are complicated and multi-faceted! :) i want to become a woman of genuine wisdom and inner strength & beauty, and also a woman with fantastic shoes and style, and sometimes even eye liner! i don't why those two things are thought of as mutually exclusive in our culture, but i have to believe that if God gave me a desire to learn, he also gave me a desire for cuteness. it's either all from him, or none from him.
maybe this post is just to justify my (formerly) secret watching of america's next top model, but it's true none the less! :)
