31 Things:

(I stole this idea from another blog, and thought it would be nice to kind of write a random list, rather then writing nothing more then work related rants! Enjoy, I will try to keep it positive.)


1. Pretty much 90% of my wardrobe comes from Charlotte Russe now. It used to be mostly Kohl's and Old Navy, but I've fallen in love with Charlotte Russe so much it's ridiculous. I could drop $100 a trip there, easy.
2. I couldn't get my nose ring back in the other night, and I cried for 2 hours. (I was also over tired.) I never realized how much my nose ring means to me until I realized I might not have it anymore! I have since re-pierced my nose (with a sewing needle. I am hardcore) so all is well.
3. I go to therapy once a week. It's nothing major, I'm not on meds or at the end of my rope... sometimes it's just good to have someone to talk to, who can offer me a different outlook on my week.
4. My mom and I email back and forth at least once a day.
5. I really, really, want to be a minimalistic neat freak. But I have too much stuff and spend too much time at work-- when I come home, I'm too damn tired to clean!
6. I have a lot of artist plans in the works that I need more motivation to accomplish.
7. I tried smoking pot in my early college days (my boyfriend was a major pothead) but besides smoking with just him, or alone... I HATED it. I'd always get super paranoid and no matter what, I'd think the people I was with were out to get me or talking trash/making fun of me-- even if they were my best friends. I was able to do some really good writing while under the influence, though.
8. Sometimes I feel like I'm too damn responsible, and I should take a break and let people look after ME for a change.
9. I love singing Karaoke, but with the exception of playing Rock Band, I haven't rocked the mic in almost 2 years now.
10. I can't wait until I'm out of debt (or at least, much LESS in debt.) I feel like I've been in debt forever, and none of the money I bring home from work is actually MINE.
11. I took 6 college classes last semester and worked full time. The trick was to get going and NOT STOP for a second. If I sat down, my exhaustion caught up with me immediately. I plan on doing the same thing this semester, as well. I want to get out of college FAST.
12. I am so bad with math it's ridiculous. This is coupled with a math anxiety problem, which literally makes me freeze up out of fear. At our yardsale last weekend, I had to subtract 7 from 20. Easy, right? Well unfortunately the customer was standing right over my shoulder watching me, and I panicked and actually needed a calculator. This only stands to embarrass the hell out of me and make the anxiety worse.
13. Along the same vein with math anxiety-- I have a hard time reading clocks with minute and second hands, and if someone says "it's quarter of/quarter after/half past/quarter til..." I have a really hard time breaking down what they mean.
14. I can't wait til I have a place that I can paint myself. I want red walls.
15. I LOVE mens boxer briefs. You know, the kind that are tight on the thighs? I'm a total thigh girl... screw arms and pecs and asses... I am all about the thighs.
16. I was devastated when Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling broke up. I've never been much into celebrity couples, but I LOVED them. That, and people have told me before that I look like Rachel, & I think my boyfriend looks like Ryan.
17. I hate talking on the telephone, but I love text messaging. If I could get a text-only plan, it would be perfect.
18. I have two tattoos and want at least two more... one of which is a quarter sleeve. Except, I also want to get married & I don't want to be a bride with tattoos that show... so I'm torn.
19. I can't enjoy Batman, 6 Flags, House, MD or the comic strip Achewood the way I used to, due to stupid ex-boyfriends.
20. I've lost almost 30 pounds in the past year, sans exercise. I can't imagine how much I would have lost if I DID exercise, so I really want to get a gym membership next.
21. Also, I can NEVER spell the word "exercise" without the help of spell check. Something about that word just doesn't make sense to me!
22. I have an intense fear of thin metal. This includes tin foil.
23. I could probably eat sushi every day for the rest of my life and never get sick of it.
24. I really wish the East Coast was as environment and health conscious as the West Coast. I have to drive 30 minutes to get to a health food store, and FORGET if I want to go out to eat and get something fresh, organic and healthy. Even frozen yogurt is hard to come by.
25. I applied for an Ikea credit card and got declined, which was really a blessing in disguise. I would have maxed out that card INSTANTLY.
26. I hate my job! (oh wait, you knew that.)
27. I hate living in CT, but I also feel like I haven't quite figured out where I belong yet.
28. If you can't spell simple words or use simple punctuation, it doesn't matter how smart you are-- I'll probably still think you're dumb.
29. I hate people who constantly try to be "cute". You're an adult for chrissakes, be an adult.
30. I bought a Chanel bag online for $60. It said it was authentic. I've tried to disprove it, but so far I haven't been able to-- I think it might actually BE authentic.
31. I never carry cash and ALWAYS use my debit card for everything. I am also constantly misplacing my ATM card. (It's missing right now, go figure.)
