I Don't Want To Be...

My mother says that people serve as an example - of what to be and what not to be.


These are traits I've observed - in myself and others - and used to decide what I want not to be.

Before I begin I'd like to acknowledge the fact that yes, we're all human. Yes, everyone imperfect. Yes, everyone has rough days where they show parts of themselves that may not be entirely true. But I believe everything can be used as a lesson to help you and me become better at this crazy thing called Life. :)

I don't want to be...


  1. Passionate to the point where I don't bother to stop and listen to the people around me and what their perspectives are.
  2. Uncouth.
  3. Afraid to be silly.
  4. Afraid to laugh.
  5. Afraid to talk.
  6. So focused on myself that everything people say to me is taken personally.
  7. The one who has to make everything about themselves.
  8. Holding on to the past for so long that it's a literal weight I carry around with me and use as a crutch to dictate my life.
  9. Unbearable.
  10. Sharp and nasty when I feel sharp and nasty.
  11. So involved with my online life that it controls everything else.
  12. The one who looks up to find that world has moved on without her.
  13. Broken.
  14. Unbroken.
  15. Controlled by numbers.
  16. Bad at sharing.
  17. Scared of small talk.
  18. Anxious.
  19. Cocky.
  20. Forgettable.
  21. Controlled by aesthetics.
  22. The one who places herself in a cookie cutter mold.
  23. Focused on the future to the point where I forget the past.
  24. Normal.
  25. A pushover.
  26. Opinionated to the point where everything turns into an argument.
  27. Closed off.
  28. Alone.

  1. I might just have to do a post like this. This was a really cool post and yes I do get it.

  2. Awesome post idea! We always spend time thinking about what we want to be, but it's definitely important to acknowledge things we should avoid.

  3. Controlled by aesthetics is something I don't want to be, either. It really frustrates me because people do it for the aesthetic, but in exchange for it they aren't always being authenticy, and the latter is more important than the former. Awesome post.

  4. This is such a great post idea! I don't want to be any of these things either. I think the biggest thing right now that I don't want to be is too scared of what might happen to actually live my life. I don't want to shove myself in my little safety box, y'know?

  5. Very relatable! My list would look pretty similar.

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Room Tour 2019

I've always wanted to do one of these posts. If not for the enjoyment of others, for the enjoyment of my future self to look back on and realize how much my style and space have changed.

My door. I think I'm sooo artsy for taping paint swatches to my door. And I actually love how it looks too. I was going for "Starry Night" with my own little twist -- and without the actual paint. ;)




This is what my room looks like from the doorway. Can you guess what the theme is? It's funny -- a few weeks ago I was discussing with Kenzie how my room has this coral and aquamarine vibe to it, yet my Instagram theme is focused on yellows and blues, and my actual fashion style is very grungy/hispter/artsy. So it all comes full circle, I guess? Still, I love my room. It's my safe haven. Now come on in so I can give you the full tour...




Right as you walk in, you will see my DIY jewelry hanging on the wall to your right. It's quite a balancing act when I want to get one of th…
