If you really knew me…

YES! I’m jumping on this too. I have no doubt the majority of you have seen this going around, if not done it yourself. I think it’s absolutely a lot of fun, and couldn’t NOT do it, myself.

If you really knew me…

>> you’d know I’ve moved 24 times and foresee many more to come.

>> you’d know I’ve gone on major spending sprees in the past, plunking down $500-$2300 in a day but I no longer do that.

>> you’d know the first pair of designer jeans I bought 8 years ago for $218, are jeans I still own and wear to this day.

>> you’d know my favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip (the green kind).

>> you’d know I hardly ever wore shorts in my 20’s because I thought my legs were too chunky. How stupid was I?!

>> you’d know I now own 9 pair of shorts and the number continues to grow.

>> you’d know I had no intention of staying in my current apartment for more than 6 months and even told my landlord this…but still find myself here almost 3 years later.

>> you’d know I sell lia sophia jewelry and am darn good at it.

>> you’d know that every time I step inside my dark apartment late at night and close the door, I imagine someone coming out of the darkness and attacking me.

>> you’d know that G-man believes I’m addicted to chapstick. And on the off chance I have him hold it for me while we’re out, he won’t give it to me when I ask for it because he thinks it’s “helping me” break the habit.

>> you’d know I used to always be in chat rooms back in the 90’s (when they used to be cool). But only the clean ones. I’d always leave when things got inappropriate.

>> you’d know I’m an open book and have never been good at hiding my emotions.

>> you’d know in college I had a running bet with a guy friend on who would cry first. and that 1 1/2 years later on the phone, he was telling me of his breakup and mentioned he cried, to which I cut him off and yelled, ‘haha you cried, you lose!’ I’ve never been prouder of myself.

>> you’d know I now cry over every little thing. Happy, sad, laughing, depressed, angry. You  name it, I instantly choke up…and that I blame age for this.

>> you’d know I hate to stand and talk to people without some form of support against me, like a wall, a car, a counter. Without it, I’m miserable (physically and mentally).

>> you’d know I have very morbid bathroom dreams that always involve one or more people one way or another watching me go…*cough* number 2. Different settings, different people, different languages (like Russian) but a constant dream for the past 17 years.

I had to end on a good note.. *ahem*


Pin It Now!

That last one had me laughing so hard I almost choked on my bagel... you shoulda warned me ;) Yes, the crying thing. It's like someone flips a switch on and the next thing you know crying become your norm.

the blogivers said...

Ha, I actually have that dream a lot, too! Like, at least once a month probably!

Let's see, I'm trying to calculate how long we've known each other, maybe 10-11 years? And waaaay back at VCA you used to carry around your chapstick in your scrubs pocket. Funny the things we can remember, eh?

Lauren said...

By the way I nominated you for the Liebster Award at this link on my blog!!!

You always make me smile! I love the honesty!

sandi said...

oh heavens! seriously, the children are looking at me like i am crazy as i laugh over the crying admission... i'm proud of you too. i have two lia sophia rings (the big black/silver flower ring i wear all the time!) that i adore and get compliments on every time i wear them. mint chocolate chip fan here too (does that cancel out the basketball comment from the other day?)

Chantel Klassen said...

Haha, I love this! Especially the part about people coming out of the dark and attacking you -I always think that too! So nice to know that I'm not alone.

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Oh wow! And I thought I had moved a lot in my lifetime! And girl, I hear you on the Chapstick thing! I am right with ya. ;)

Lisa said...

Gosh.... that's a lot of info to process!!

Happy birthday month gorgeous!!

Funny, I grew up in Florida, always wearing shorts. It wasn't until I started getting into fashion that I ever realized the weren't "cool". I still wore them anyway (and am happy they are back in fashion).

Also, I am surprised at how easily I choke up over commercials, movies, tv shows. It seems to have gotten worse as I have gotten older. Don't let there be a dog in the commercial. I am a goner.

Chapstick is so important it's like air!

No crying contest love it

Megan said...

Okay, those dreams are awkward. Haha. And I love that you yelled out that he lost right in the middle of his breakup drama. Haha.

Megan said...
