Thats what I am committing to writing about myself for the next 30 days… Ya know because I need an outlet and I think that this would be a great place to be an outlet. So here we GOOOOOOOO!!!!
Here is a recent picture of me… It’s almost Halloween so don’t judge the cat like features. =]
15 Facts about this girl (Imagine me pointing to myself with my thumbs.)
#1. I love art. I mean I know some people especially hipster (I’m sorry if you’re offended) say they love art but never look at it or buy it or make it. That is not me. I create almost everyday. I go to art museums just to look at art I’ve seen a million times all ready and I but it. If I walk into a place and there is a piece that moves me. That I attach some deeper meaning to you best believe I’m gonna buy it…well, I’ll buy a print I’m defiantly not rich enough to buy any originals (except my own)
#2. I love God. Yes, I’m a Christian and it’s weird to think otherwise if you have read ANY of my other blog posts. Yes, I ask questions to him that any normal person would get tired of and walk a way but God isn’t a normal …Person. He is God.He forgives me even when I feel like I can’t forgive myself and He loves me even though I know I’m not entitled to it.
#3. I love learning. My favorite thing about the internet? I can ask question that when I was younger I would have to sit in a library and go through a couple encyclopedias to get the answer. Now a days its all at my fingertips. But don’t get me wrong, I learn. I ask a question and then I know it. I don’t just forget it and ask it a million times again (I have a couple of friends who do that). I like to know how things work, and how certain things are the way they are. Some of my friends think I’m super smart. But I have never claimed to know it all and I NEVER will.
#4. I’m an adult who loves young adult literature. I think this stems from adult books being soooooo……boring? or Too life like that you just want to say, “Yeah, thanks I can just go live my own life and it more more suspenseful.” Yes, I know that there are really good adult books…but can I pick up a book that is labeled “ADULT” and NOT be bombarded with sex, or sex scandals? No? Well, I will take my young adult fiction (Usually sic-fi) and go.
#5.My niece is not my child. But man do I love her like she is my own. I think it has something to do with the fact that I can have fun with her and watch her grow and I don’t have to handle all the discipline… but whatever I’ll take it.
#6. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo ready to live on my own. At the moment I am sitting here in my brothers house because that is where I have called home for the last couple of months because my parents have no electricity. More on that later….I guess. But I am 25 years old…..Time to get an apartment.
#7. I hate my job. If you have talked to me in more than just a superficial manner you know this fact. I hate retail. Like with a passion. So I guess you could say that I have a passion for my job. But here is the thing, I promised myself that I would stay at this job until I got a graphic design job….or at least a job I could make a career out of. So here I am 2 years later at this job that I can’t stand. I’m not super pessimistic I promise, but this job has literally crushed my soul. But God is teaching me all kinds of great stuff and that is good, right?
#8. I am a victim of chronic binge watching. I often wonder if I had watch the shows I binge when they aired if they would still be on. I don’t look it up because I don’t want to know the answer I’d feel too bad. Although honestly #BringbackREDBANDsociety am I right?
#9. I take the role no one else has taken. Yeah, I’m not too sure about that. I mean I do but, it is really super hard in my head to make a lot of sense. So heres the best I got; at work, if everyone is super upset and down in the dumps I am trying to cheer them up. If they are all happy and depressed I might be but most likely I will be super depressingly real. But there are tons of exceptions and I don’t even understand it.
#10. My dreams for the future include but are not limited to: Selling my art, meeting/marrying the man that God intended for me, living close to my friends, having a job that I LOVE, go back to Greece, visit Spain, Ireland, Scotland, England, Italy, Guatemala, and an all inclusive resort.
#11. I have a long bucket list as you can tell by all the places I want to visit. There are a lot more but specific places like Stonehenge. But also things like reading 52 books in a year…
#12. My family is life. I love them soooooo much. they are the best people I know. And I don’t just mean the fun people who are blood related. My close friends too, they are also my family. I wouldn’t trade the people I am stuck with and the people I have chosen for the world.
#13. Fall is the best. I mean seriously. Although, I HATE pumpkin flavored anything I mean come on America let’s get back to the OG of fall flavor that’s right I’m talking about the good ole Apple Cider. MMMMMM. The haunted hay rides, corn mazes and apple orchards are the absolute best.
#14. I am an artist NOT a craftsman. Meaning I HATE doing crafts. I don’t really get it but there is a huge difference, trust me.
#15. My top love languages are quality time and gifts. If we’re hanging out we’re good. We don’t really need to talk just sitting there is fine and you being me some coffee and you have my heart. =]
That is 15 facts. It’s pretty lengthy, I guess I could have done a simple 15 things thing….but where is the fun in that?
I hope you all are doing well and I’d love to hear some facts about you!
