Who is Writing These Posts?
Happy Monday, everyone!
As I was deciding what to make this Monday’s post about, I was considering how I’m a really new blogger. Being new means that no one really knows who I am, or what I’m about. I’m hoping that eventually, some of these posts can turn into conversations, with readers commenting their thoughts back to mine. If I wanna have conversations with you guys, I figured maybe I should give you a chance to get to know me a little better. So, today I’m going to share with you: 5 weird things about me, 4 things I’m passionate about, 3 places I’m headed, 2 of my most embarrassing moments, and 1 thing I’m hoping to get out of my new blogging adventure.
1. I have a rib in my neck, right above my collarbone on the right side. It hurts when people push on it.
2. I have this rain coat my mom bought me for Ireland, and I can’t zip it up by myself. I’ve had to ask a stranger to help me before.
3. I switched from drinking moscato to dry, red wine overnight. One day, I just didn’t like moscato anymore, and suddenly, I loved dry red. I’d change my birthday to that day if I could remember the date…that’s the day my life really began.
4. I don’t like to call people their actual names/pronounce names correctly. I call Sam “Jimmy” 75% of the time. I have no idea where it came from, but he responds to it now.
5. I am an extreme lightweight; I get tipsy from half a beer. So when I go out with my friends, I have to order a lot of waters to pace myself. At the bar we always start at, one of the bartenders only ever offers me water to mock me.
1. Kwathu Free Haven Community School in Livingstone, Zambia. It’s a school for children in the area that cannot afford school. Because of an incredible 22-year old girl named Samantha Knaub that moved to Africa to run the school, and because of donations from here in the US, 315 kids now have access to education and two meals a day. She deserves to be on Ellen or something. You can sponsor a child there for $25 a month if this sounds like something you could be passionate about, also! Here’s their website if you wanna check it out.
2. Slightly less important, but I am very big on coffee every single morning.
3. Kindness. All around. No excuses.
4. Sandwiches shouldn’t be eaten for dinner. There are a few exceptions to this, such as a philly, but generally, I do not believe a turkey sandwich counts as a dinner.
Where I’m headed
1. Graduate school for Human Resources (as of now…:) )
2. Back to Africa to help in Samantha’s school
3. To the level of adulthood where I can keep my room clean. (okay, this one is long term.)
1. One day in the 7th grade, when I bent down, my jeans split. Like my entire backside was showing. I thought I’d get in trouble for trying to go home to change, so I just wore a sweatshirt around my waist all day. *cue spongebob song* THE FOOL WHO RIPPEDDDDDD HIS PANTS. My mom had to explain to me that that was in fact an emergency situation that warranted leaving school.
2. When I was in 10th grade, I was in show choir (simultaneous singing and dancing…why did I think that would end well for me?) During one of the competitions, I slipped on the back riser, and slid down four risers on my stomach like a penguin. When I finally stopped sliding, I was face to face with my crush at the time who was sitting it the front row. That dress still has skid marks down the entire front. I quit show choir after that.
What am I hoping to get out of my blogging adventure?
1. Honestly, I’m not too sure. I’ve always loved blogging, and I finally decided that if I’m writing anyway, why not make it public? It’s sort of therapeutic for me, and I enjoy being able to look back on my creations. Maybe someday I’ll become a mom blogger. Maybe someday I’ll be a mom and laugh at the fact that I ever thought I’d have time to keep blogging with munchkins in the house.
Who knows where this will go, but I am enjoying it, and I hope you are too.
