Four Things

2 Jun

I saw this fun blog post on another blog I read, KJ Pugs, and thought it would be fun to try out. I think it’s the perfect thing for a Thursday since it doesn’t involve much thought processing.

Four jobs I’ve had in my life

  1. Clerk/snow cone maker at a mini golf/driving range
  2. Clothes bitch at Marhsall’s
  3. Clerk at a card/candy store
  4. Sort-of-slave at a dinner making store for fancy ladies called Dream Dinners

Four movies I would watch over and over

  1. Groundhog Day
  2. Forrest Gump
  3. Talladega Nights
  4. Father of the Bride

 

Four places I’ve lived

  1. Olney, MD
  2. Northridge, CA
  3. Hartford, CT
  4. Arlington, VA

 

Four TV shows I love to watch

  1. How I met your mother
  2. The Office
  3. Arrested Development
  4. Pregnant in Heels

Four places I have been on vacation

  1. Outer Banks, NC
  2. Sanibel Island, FL

Something you hate about yourself

10 Feb

Hate might be too strong of a word, but if I had to choose one thing about myself that I could change it would be my level of drive and motivation. I am a dreamer. I used to think that I could be a doer, but then I realized that I lack the motivational skills and drive to make things happen. I don’t hate this about myself, but I don’t really like it either. The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve wanted to change, but the harder it has been. I would love to do a lot of things in life – live abroad with Noah, go on a cross country road trip, get my PsyD….but as much as I think about them, I’ve hard a hard time flipping the switch on any of them. I hope that I can change that. I hope that the older I get, the more I will realize that life is too short not to do the things I dream about.

I hope that hoping isn’t the same thing as dreaming…

30 days of truth

10 Feb

I really enjoyed doing the 30 day blog journal when I first started this blog. It helped readers get to know me (hi readers!) and it helped keep me to a schedule (which I desperately need). I was a little bummed when 30 day blog journal was over because I wasn’t quite sure what to write about just yet. I feel like having post prompts that end in a specific amount of time is the perfect way for me to flex my writing muscles. It allows me to spend less time coming up with a topic and more time actually putting thought into the words that I’m writing.

SO without further ado…



Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself.
