What is a Fuzzball?

  • One question I hear more than any other is What's a Fuzzball??" Allow me to explain:

    A Fuzzball is a 30-year-old fallen debutante who lives in Houston, TX with a bossy dog and an even bossier parrot who she SWEARS is the reincarnation of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    A Fuzzball prefers animals to most people, because people can really suck sometimes.

    A Fuzzball loves music, ALL music ALL of the time. If she's not listening to it, then she's singing it.

    A Fuzzball has a mad love for all things British, especially their actors.

    A Fuzzball is blissfully happy in a bookstore, preferably one with good music playing in the background. If you look under a Fuzzball's bed you'll usually find an entire library of books that she has dropped there after falling asleep reading.

    Fuzzballs are usually incurable romantics, ridiculously optimistic, and bent on making the world a happier place.

    Your typical Fuzzball will probably have a completely bizarre sense of humor. Just go with it, it will take you to funny places.

    You should also be aware that Fuzzballs are giant nerds. Seriously. Science fiction, computers, the whole shebang.

    Fuzzballs are also budding photographers. They love looking at the world through a lens and finding new ways to be creative.

    Oh...and you can also look for a Fuzzball in one of the best movies ever made. ;)

Chris (the one from far away)

I totally agree with you. I had (I hope I can say 'had' here) the same problem as you. I often bought things because I thought it's cool to have them and that I need them. A short while after I bought them (of course) I recognized I didn't use them that often.

But more importantly - I often stuffed my life full with things I thought I wanted to (or should) do. Like taking learning two new languages at a time, making x certificates for work, reading y books a year, running z time a week, eating only healthy food... But then I recognized that I put myself under so much pressure that I did nothing at all. So I felt guilty and even more depressed. I compared myself with other people and felt even more depressed. I (hope) I've learned from this experience - so today I still have plans but I give them more time - and I try to recognize what _I_ really want, not what I think society wants me to do. And so far this works well for me - although it's a slow process to come to this point. At least for me.


My big lesson so far was dealing with the aftermath of marrying WAY too young to an Assface. I tend to rush into things and then I hate to admit failure. I got through it (after 6 years) and focused on me for a bit and ended up with my best friend and an adorable kiddo. I still tend to rush into some things though... like getting another animal, changing my hair, moving. But they seem like small potatoes compared ot previous choices.

On another note, I am SO glad you are blogging again! :)
