I can’t. I just can’t.
I can’t ever settle with one thing. It’s why best/worst/what’s your favorite fill in the blank inquiries always confound me. I’m your quintessential Gemini; can’t make up my mind to save my life.
That said, you’d think I’d veto Selah when she came up with this month’s T3 topic: Best or Worst Read of 2014. How did I even think I’d be able to narrow down a year’s worth of reading into one, final decision?
But it had sounded like a great topic at the time – a good way to cap off the year – and I couldn’t think of an alternative topic so I’d agreed and thought I’d surely think of something by the time December came rolling around. And yet here we are. December. And I got nothing.
Or so I thought.
When I was planning this week, my primary game plan was to fulfill my school’s Spirit Week. And today is Flannel Day. And I came up with this outfit. And I really liked it and wouldn’t even have thought to change it but then I remembered T3 and despaired, thinking I’d have to start from scratch.
But then I went to my Goodreads account and reviewed my 2014 reading list and had a total epiphany: you know what all my 5-star reads all have in common? Badass female protagonists who don’t take guff from anyone. And you know what I feel like in this outfit? Yep. You guessed it.
So even though I simply can’t decide on a “Best Read”, at least I can determine what makes all my bests so great. Now if only I could’ve decided on which pair of boots to wear with this ensemble when I did my pictorial. (Yep, I’m wearing two different boots; didja notice?) Which do you think eventually won out?
