My life as a book title – 2010

I did this meme on my birthday last year and since it’s been revamped for 2010, I thought I might do it this day each year it’s around. Basically, you just complete the sentence with a title of a book you’ve read during the current year. Here’s this year’s story/summary of my life (although I’m cheating a bit by using the title of the book I’m currently reading):

In high school I was: Looking for the Summer (Robert W. Norris)

People might be surprised I’m: Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So (Mark Vonnegut)

I will never be: The Twin (Gerbrand Bakker)

My fantasy job is: God’s Brain (Lionel Tiger and Michael McGuire)

At the end of a long day I need: Freedom, Jonathan Franzen

I hate it when: I Curse the River of Time (Per Petterson)

Wish I had: Too Much Happiness (Alice Munro)

My family reunions are: Strange Days Indeed (Francis Wheen)

At a party you’d find me with: The Imperfectionists (Tom Rachman)

I’ve never been to: Point Omega (Don DeLillo)

A happy day includes: Freedom

Motto I live by: Nothing to Envy (Barbara Demick)

On my bucket list: Packing for Mars (Mary Roach)

In my next life, I want to be: God’s Brain

Any moment called now is always full of possibles.
