About Me - and other thoughts
Wednesday, January 22, 2014
What? Two blogs in one day. I know, right. Just thought I'd join in the About Me fun - havent done one in a while and I have new Spark Friends since the last time :)
A is for Age: 30 - I'll be 31 next month *sigh*
B is for Booze: I like cabernet wine. I also like wheat beers but since I have to avoid gluten, no more wheat beers for me. I like hard cider, too. And strawberry daiquiris. Actually, though, I rarely drink.
C is for Car: 2012 Jeep Compass - I'm not a huge fan of SUVs, but I like it because it drives well in the Colorado weather. When I move away, I am getting a new car though, and it will be a car, not an SUV!
D is for Dad's name: Jim
E is for Ego: Eh not so much. I am confident in my job, but right now feeling less confident in myself, personally.
F is for Favorite song or music: I dont think I have much of a favorite. I really only listen to music when driving or when running and most of the time I dont pay attention to whats playing. I like popular music - not so much big on the country.
G is for Goof off thing to do: I feel lame. I dont think I goof off much. I guess just dancing around my house to loud music occassionally. Mostly I try to relax.
H is for Hometown: Sayreville, NJ - it's also the hometown of Bon Jovi - not that I've ever met him, but its cool to say that he went to my high school and all.
I is for IQ: I would LOVE to take an IQ test. How does one make this happen?
J is for Jam or Jelly you like: I dont like jam or jelly. It's a texture thing.
K is for Kids: my dog is like my child. She's a 2.5 year old Morkie (maltese yorkie mix)
L is for Living arrangement: I own my house and pay a mortgage. I love having my own house; I just wish it was a different location - like back east where I'm originally from. I feel like after owning a house, it will be hard to be a renter again, so I am hoping I will be able to sell my house when it's time to move next year.
M is for Mom's name: Georgeanne
N is for Name of best friend: I dont think I really have a best friend right now. I have close friends - Melissa is probably my closest, and then my friend Jen.
O is for Observations: I'm very observant of my surroundings and I have an amazing memory, which is good and bad. My current observations are that I am clearly procrastinating from doing work - its avoidance definitely.
P is for Phobias: I have a fear of knives. When I was a teenager, I was stalked and received death threats which graphically told me that I would be stabbed to death. For the longest time I would not even hold knives. I can hold them and use them now, but I do twinge when I see someone else holding one, like when cooking. I also have a fear of spending my life alone. It's one of the fears I've had since I was little. I like my alone time, but the idea of being alone forever is terrifying and saddening.
Q is for Quote you like: "In a world where you can be anything, be yourself." - unknown; "I cant go back to yesterday because I was a different person then." - Lewis Carroll (from Alice in Wonderland)
R is for Relationship: recently single :/
S is for Siblings: an older half sister that I dont have any relationship with, and a younger brother that I am very close with
T is for Talents: I think I'm very talented :) I run, sew, dance, cross-stitch, scrapbook, bake, cook.
U is for Unique trait: I have quirky interests that set me apart from other women my age.
V is for vegetable you love: red bell peppers
W is for Worst traits: I worry constantly about something - anything.
X- is for X-rays you've had: My knees, ankles, arms, wrists, nose. Seriously, I feel like if it could be x-rayed, it's probably been x-rayed!
Y is for Yummy food you make: cupcakes are my favorite, of course :)
Z is for Zodiac sign: Aquarious
Well, that was fun. Maybe you learned something new about me. I'm still having a rough time today. I'm overly emotional about my life - that is just the consequence of yesterday, and still dealing with the breakup. Gosh, I feel like I must read like a broken record. But you guys know I'm not going to be totally fine after 3.5 weeks. 2 years with someone is a long time. I'm just trying to go through the process honestly. *sigh*
I'm avoiding work. Im tired of sadness this week. And all of my phone calls I need to make are going to be emotional for the people I call. I just dont want to hear anymore crying today. I seriously cannot wait to go home and cuddle up with my dog.
Anyone have any book reading suggestions, in which the main character is a single female in her thirties? I feel like I need some hope that my life isnt completely falling apart.
