1 Phrase that describes me…

The first thing that came to mind was a three word phrase made famous by the television program Top Gear:

For the last five years I have been through some of the most horrendous shit you could possibly imagine. In fact, don’t even try to imagine it, you really don’t want to! Yet, despite all the darkness; the mood swings, hallucinations, isolation, psychosis, mania, anxiety, depression, homelessness and god knows what else life chooses to throw at me. I’m still here. Still being me. Still trying to sort out my life. Still pushing myself to be a better person. Still trying to help others whenever I can (and yes, I’m not perfect, but what human being is?)

No matter what gets thrown at me I’m still the slightly insane, far-too-caring, slightly kinky, honest, deeply passionate, creative, hard-working, effing magnificent bastard that I always have been!

So, the only phrase that comes to mind was made famous by someone very famous indeed:

Tomorrow: A Brand spanking new challenge
(which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s about spanking, but who knows, maybe it will be :p
