About Woo

There is a quote that I feel is extremely overused but that really speaks to me at this point in my existence…

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw

I am a recent graduate of college who is dying for some clarity as far as that quote is concerned. That is why I created Adventures of Tootsie Woo. Shaw seems to be fairly straight-forward, does he not? What am I not getting about his fairly concise quotation? Did I really go to college? Why is Blue Cheese okay to eat, but not other types of mold–? I suppose it’s not that I don’t understand but that I am unsure about what ingredients I would like to include in the making of me. It is easy to leave your personal development up to fate, to let your end result (though I don’t believe there ever is an end result) of who you grow into as a person be a mere configuration of accidental influences and happenstance. It is much harder to realize that we all have a hand in shaping who we become and that we can make choices about the type of person we would like to be…patient, caring, snide, snobbish, charming…of which of the seven dwarfs will one day define us.

This blog is meant to guide me along the rocky path of development after leaving college where I am truly forced to make decisions about what I want out of life and how I’m going to get it. I am Tootsie Woo. And I will fall repeatedly as I find my sea legs on this journey but I will never fail to get up…even if in the process of falling my skirt flies up and I flash everyone that’s there to see…which has happened…more than twice.

These are the Adventures of Tootsie Woo.

    You look like a party girl there. Do you like parties?

      Oh man, Mr. Cargill, I just realized that your past few comments have been in Spam! Remedying situation, fear not. And to answer, yes and no, I’m not a party girl or I’m not not a party girl…

        Yeah, all my comments are being marked as spam on all blogs at the moment. It’s annoying!
