This isn't like one of my usual posts. It's just a thought that passed through my mind and now I am sharing.

A few weeks ago, someone referred to me as 'inbetween'...they were talking about my weight at the time [I know a friendly bunch don't I??] so of course, I started tormenting myself and calling myself a size inbetween [what do you mean I have issues?? nuh uh. I am literally a well rounded gal]

Anyhoo the point is that I have come to the realisation that this horrid phrase really DOES apply to me, but in more ways than one.

I AM casually sauntering somewhere inbetween overweight land and ideal weightville.
I am also inbetween being a bordeline genius and a complete half wit [sometimes I am incredibly sloooooooow]
I am inbetween being a lawyer and erm just not.
I am inbetween being a girl and a woman [an unpleasant truth in every way imaginable]

and most annoyingly, 

I am inbetween being in a 'friendship' and a 'relationship'. I am not sure whether to call it a relationraft or a potentialship but whatever it may be, it is nonetheless inbetween.

I don't particularly like this label. Nothing good comes from being inbetween [except maybe the inbetweeners??]. Have you noticed that some stores don't even stock a size 6.5 shoe?? yes, that's right, even the fashion industry is beginning to shun all things inbetween.

Look at the modelling industry: you're either plus size or minus size. There is no platform for the inbetween model.

So yeah. The point is that I need to pick a side of all my inbetween-y places and really just stick to it.

I would like to be slim, smart, secure in my career and erm not so sure about the relationboat bit, but if we're going with the 's' pattern that my choices seem to have picked...then I guess I would rather be...single??

Dunno really. These are all just random thoughts.
Here's to the inbetweeners. The only good inbetween thing in my life.

and here are a bunch of shoes that I really wouldn't mind being rescued from office for me [in size 6 mind you as office does not do inbetween sizes. shocker that]

That was actually very funny. This week somebody told me I was only 40% intelligent. In between is about 60 right? Count yourself lucky.

what did i tell you about 40% comments. my inbetween-ness transcends into about 5 diff aspects of my life. my themes song from high school to college was britney spears' 'i'm not a girl'. i am alive though so i count myself inbetween. thanks

Gosh I know what you mean! I'm in between a size 10 and 12. Why I can never get a 10 is beyond me!!
