But it's still MY blog

So, I got engaged. Affianced, if you will. Really, I prefer to say “We” when discussing “got engaged”, but I feel like that is also insanely obnoxious, as if trying to prove a point.

I’m having issues with this…this “I” versus “we” thing. On the one hand, it’s not all about me anymore (and yes, I am having a hard time with that. OBVIOUSLY.) So it feels selfish, like I’m taking my fiancĂ© out of the picture entirely and making it all about ME, when I say things like “my wedding”, “I’m so excited”,  and “my anti-anxiety medication”.

 Oh wait, that last one works.

But on the other hand, what is more obnoxious than someone suddenly morphing into the Siamese subjective personal pronoun abuser? If it makes me want to die when I say it, how much more do other people fight the urge to sneer with disdain when they hear me say “WE are so excited about OUR life together, WE can’t wait to plan OUR wedding and WE are OUR own best friends. WE are. OURS. US. WE.”

Basically, I don’t really know the rule about this. Sorry, WE don’t really know the rule about this.
So I’m (we’re) going to just do what I (we) think is best on a case-by-case basis. There. I (we) made up my (our) mind.
