IF YOU REALLY KNEW ME
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
If you really knew me, you would know:
- My laugh is so loud that it travels across a department store size building.
- I have 206 creative bones in my body.
-I have been a hundred people and lived a hundred lives.
-Sometimes I exaggerate. But only sometimes. So... maybe 20 people and 20 lives. Either way, it's a lot.
-I've had anxiety dreams every night for most of my life.
-I graduated high school at 16 but had no idea what I was doing.
-I was so jealous of the VonTrap children that I couldn't watch The Sound of Music for years. I'm glad I got over that because it's one of my favorite movies of all time. I still kinda wish I was Liesel. Along with that, I've seen every Rogers and Hammerstein musical ever made. If you haven't, you should change that.
-I didn't have my first kiss until I was 20.
-I miss college and my naivete so much that looking at old photographs causes more pain than nostalgia.
- I played the violin/fiddle, guitar, piano, recorder, and mandolin, but all I want to learn is the ukulele.
-All of my wrong turns have led me to the right place.
-I say "dollars" instead of "money". Ex: Hey, do you have any dollars I can borrow forever?
-I always give people the benefit of the doubt unless they give me a reason to do otherwise. But then they put themselves on my eternal shit list. Beware.
- I am the fattest I have ever been, but somehow I now love myself the most.
-No matter what, every time I go thrifting everything in my cart ends up being black or red.
-I used to be a Hipster then I quit. But I still love PBR, pretty bicycles, and Stereo Total.
-I really don't like shaving my legs, but I hate it when my legs are hairy. Conundrum.
-I am, and probably will always be a book snob. Conversely, I used to be a movie snob but I ditched that for good.
-I used to sing second soprano and alto in a prestigious choir, but lost my ability after smoking for a few years. Goddamnit.
- I chose each of my tattoos to represent a significant part of my life and I have yet to regret one. Probably because each part of my life will always have a influence on who I am today and tomorrow.
-I plan on traveling the world and educating about Mental Health as a Behavioral Health professional.
-When I was 7 I got my shoelace and then foot caught in an escalator. In order for us not to sue the mall, they gave me brand new lace shoes. Best day of my 7 year old life. But I had a fear of escalators for years.
-I feel perfectly natural with purple hair.
-I care. A lot.
Give me ONE thing that I would know about you... if I really knew you. Ready..... GO!
