She's An Uptown Girl

I always loved Billy Joels rendition of Uptown Girl..I remember hearing it as a very young girl and thinking to myself.."what kind of girl am I"? The songs lyrics gives us a bit of a character sketch of this uptown girl.

For our prompt today we will write a entry that gives a bit of a character sketch about you.

What does that look like?

Here is a little example:

She loves theatre, musicals, watching basketball, being creative, sitting by the ocean,New York City,good food, good music, God, her husband and her family

She is put off by narcissism and mean spirited people.

She is now considered an uptown girl but lived most of her life as a downtown girl and has experienced life on both sides.

You obviously can get way more detailed and I did but that was just a few lines from my own journal.

I would LOVE to have you post and share anything you write on this subject. This is always one of my favorite prompts. It really makes you think about who you are.

Have a beautiful day!

Sending Love,


  1. she trusts God @ His Word, she enjoys Spirit-filled artsy-fartsy, hiking, gardening, paintball, dancing, sweets, photography, sewing, clever wisdom, anmials, singing & kindred-spirits!

    she is put off by the misuse of the word love and those that live life less in fear.

    she was, well, truthfully, there's not much ugly that she wasn't @ some point or another BUT now she focuses on being more of what glorifies God and thereby less of what she was.

    although she is flawed, she aspires to think, say & do according to eternal value...

    and this all brings to mind a great song by harry connick jr, she, as well as one by alanis morrissette, so called chaos.

  2. Fabulously Flawed...
    Well behaved woman rarely make history...
    Live, Love, Laugh
    Give more than you recieve...
    Inspire, Encourage, Invest (in our relationships) Enjoy!

  3. she's a girl who's made her share of mistakes and is thankful she is loved by a God who gives 2nd chances. she loves the ocean, playing catch with the dog, and doing almost anything as a family, even laundry; loves cheesecake and dancing in the kitchen and works to extend more grace and kindness and less critisism...
