gee, sound like anyone you know?

"I have far more enthusiasm in life than I have actual energy. In my excitement, I routinely take on more than I can physically or emotionally handle, which causes me to break down in quite predictable displays of dramatic exhaustion. You will be the one burdened with the job of mopping me up every time I've overextended myself and then fallen apart. This will be unbelievably tedious. I apologize in advance."

-Elizabeth Gilbert, in Committed

If you're nodding or laughing right now, you're either my very close relation, or your name is Andy. Sorry, guys. But I do feel better having such a succinct and even elegant description for my, shall we say, exuberant approach to life.
