I is for _____________

August 11th, 2011

INTROVERT – not much of one for social situations or to get out & about – I’m an introvert through and through.

INTERESTING – I’d certainly say that I’m an interesting person. I’ve had a lot of life experience, traveling far and wide, seen many things and read a great number of books.

INDEPENDENT – probably because I’m an introvert I’ve always been a bit independent, doing things by myself and for myself.

INDECISIVE – it’s not so much that I can’t make a decision, but rather I’m fairly laid back about things and really don’t mind what ends up happening.

IN LOVE – Mr Chiots – need I say more?

IMPERFECT – As much as I’d love to be perfect I have to admit I’m not.

INDUSTRIOUS – You’ll always find me doing something, making something, starting a business.

INSTINCTIVE – I think part of being an introvert and being introspective give me good instincts.

What words/phrases describe you that start with a I?

    Oh my gosh, I forgot independent. I like your list of I’s. A few of mine were impatient, introspective, & image. I had a hard time with I’s for some reason. I jumped ahead a bit and also posted J’s at the same time. Emily

    ‘in love’ was my first thought but as I’m only doing one a one word story I thought people might tire of me mooning over my dearly beloved!
    So I is for … inspired by old people and has just been posted with one minute to spare! It’s Friday here now and I’m off to bed … (probably with ponderings of J rattling around my head!)

    Inspired, independent, intelligent, impatient, instinctive too and I am introverted as well, but I also have an outgoing nature most of the time. Sometimes Im illogical, and Im not sure thats a bad thing. ;)
