Two green orbs are hanging around in my living room. A glow emanates from the center of each orb. One hovers above my television, and the other hovers in the adjacent corner.
Don't call the Ghost Hunters team, though. They're just paper lanterns...
that I put up by myself!
I may be a girl, and an academic girl at that, but I'm pretty handy around the house. I can assemble bookshelves on my own. I can hang lanterns from the ceiling (and assemble the anchors in the ceiling). I can put together a bed by myself, as well as a coffee table, a buffet, and two end tables. I know how to check my own oil, cook killer brownies, tackle almost every recipe I find, cook a holiday meal by myself (in time), and decorate a house (when I've got the means to do so).
I am independent woman. Hear me roar. I need no man. Okay, I'd like to date someone sometime, but I don't need to.
It's a good feeling. Satisfying.
