I'm intrigued with the idea of participating in the day diary for "This Day in the Life of Working Women." I've never documented an entire day in depth before and I think it would be an interesting exercise. I'm always thinking of little things that would make good blog posts and then forgetting them before I post again. An exhaustive day diary would capture lots of thoughts and activities that would ordinarily breeze by.
I started to fill out the application, but I got stuck on the question, "What labels - positive and negative - do you and society assign to yourself?"
Now there's an interesting exercise all by itself. Here are a few, off the top of my head and in no particular order: wife, friend, writer, blogger, singer, lyricist, musician, yuppie (whether I like it or not), feminist, child-free (or childless, depending on who's doing the labeling), creative (noun), resource, cat person, club president, volunteer, do-gooder, homeowner, taxpayer, tomboy, Generation Xer, thirty-something (but not for long), conservationist, libertarian, omnivore, sister, sister-in-law, daughter, aunt, cousin, niece, step-daughter, employee, procrastinator, crocheter, cook, baker and do-it-yourself-er.
I'm sure I could think of many more if I gave myself more time.
So what do you think, should I participate? Would you?
