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. ;)

All the choices you have made and will continue to make are what are mapping your future. It's all in your hands, but not (hey cryptic, how you doin'?) At least, that's what I have found to be true. I don't think things are mapped out, but I do know that all the seemingly wrong decisions tend to be the ones we learn the most and grow from... and they help us appreciate the good in our lives when we stumble upon it or it smacks us in the face. I do love you. I will cheer you on inevitably (ha! no pun intended) but I'll also tell it like I see it because that's what I would want. You're awesome, don't forget it. *hugsnorgle*


I can totally relate to this post on so many levels - especially about helpful "advice" given by mothers. When my mom was my age, she had one kid in high school, another in junior high, and a third in grade school. She tries to tell me that she understands how tough it is to be single/dating at my age and that I should do X and Y. However, dating 1) as a 20 year old is completely different from dating in your 30s and 2) in the 70s is different from dating in the 00s. She cannot grasp these facts, which is very frustrating for us both! That's why I'm extremely grateful for my friends who are in the same boat.


I don't think there is anything wrong with not having plans for the future. It's kind of nice not to, to just sit back and see where life takes you.

And while I can talk to my mom about anything, she can be very close-minded, and has a hard time understanding where I'm coming from sometimes. But I know she wants what's best for me - as I'm sure your mom does, too. It's frustrating, though, trying to talk to someone who has no idea what you're going through.


Damn and I was totally expecting a check too!

Communicating with parents never seems to be easy regardless of their age. It always ends up that we both think we've been in the exact same spot before when in fact neither of us has, or we compare apples to oranges.

As for the future being mapped out, I'm not sure about that....I've often wondered but haven't come to a conclusion in my own mind yet. I'm sure you'll find your "perfection" someday. It might take a little longer to create though.

Any horse would be lucky to have you get back up on them... that just sounds creepy and wrong, but I'm sticking by it. :oP


It is quite interesting that I read over your post today because I had these same exact thoughts ago last year. It has been hard trying to make sense of why it takes so long to arrive to what is meant for your life. I think the answer lies with the trust that we must put in on our Creator, since He is the fooprints in the sand that lead us to true peace. i know that I am a complete stranger, but in asking the same question last year and many years before, being now 28, is that we have no control of our lives. We can coose things that seems like they will lead us down a cool path and then before we know it we see the only the mud covering our faces of situations we definitely could not foresee. One day at a time!


I am thrilled that I have gotten to know you in the limited capacity that I have. I hope the feeling is mutual. I am not privy to all you have been through but I am a tiny bit.

I wish I had some fabulous advice that upon reading, you'd smack your head and go "Exactly! Ugh, she's so wise. I'm totally fine now." Amazingly enough? Yeah, I don't. But I am here to vent and stuff like that.

I hope that helps.


I have the EXACT same radar when it comes to being able to tell who likes who. I really hate that radar. It's depressing because there are so many signals flying in the air I keep wondering if I'll ever get hit by one.

Mothers, don't even get me started.
