So Random

Good morning, friends! I was reading a blog over on Two Thirds Hazel last week where she laid a few blog questions in a survey format, so I thought that might be something fun to do today. So without further adieu, enjoy reading my random answers!

1. Something you will…

refuse to do for the rest of you life: be anything but a Packer fan when it comes to the NFL. Because that would be just absolutely ridiculous.

always do forever: be super random. I’m seriously all over the place and I actually like that about myself. I can find pretty much anything to entertain myself. You’ll be talking to me one minute and the next I’ll completely stop the conversation to be like, “WHOA – why are there plugs in the ceiling?!” (<– I may/may not have done this on a date a couple of weeks ago.) Or maybe when I’m mid-conversation and go, “OOOOH, I LOVE CHERRIES” and stick my hand in my drink to get out the cherry at the bottom. (<— Maybe did this while talking to same guy from the aforementioned plug comment. Good thing he thinks it’s cute when I do that… gosh, I’m weird.)


2. Something you think is…

certifiably disgusting: animal abuse. I mean, how can someone consciously hurt a defenseless being? This was my platform when I was in pageants when I was younger, but unfortunately it wasn’t a very popular platform. Don’t care – still something I’m passionate about.

absolutely amazing: curling up on the couch watching something on TV with someone you care about whether it’s a guy/lady, friend or animal. Or all of the above.

3. A compliment you’ve been given that’s made you…

feel on top of the world: “I love it when you smile” or a simple “You look beautiful” can do wonders (especially coming from someone special). My friend has told me that I’m very in tune with other people’s feelings, which I take as a compliment.

pretty upset: “You got hot since high school!” First off, is that supposed to be a compliment? Because excuse me, I was hot in high school, too. (hehehe just kidding) Also, how about let’s not hit on the girl while she’s clearly on a date with another guy and he walks away for five seconds and you jump in like a creepy ninja, mmkay?

4. A name you…

hate: I don’t like saying I “hate” this name, because it’s a pretty popular male name, but I’m not a big fan of the name Matt. No offense to the Matts out there – I’ve just met quite a few awful Matts in my lifetime (though I have met a couple of cool ones, too!)

love: Emma (girl) and Finn (boy). I have no idea, but I love both of those names and if someone ever convinces me that I want children, those are going to be the names I’ll be fighting for.

5. Something people say about you that you…

know is entirely false: that I’m naturally skinny and need to stop “dieting”. LOLOLOLOL. Okay, so this will probably tick some people off, but I hate it when people assume that I have the “perfect body”. Oh, no silly. I just know how to dress myself for my body type. I haven’t been in a swimming suit for almost four years because I know I can’t hide my problem areas in that. Again, I know that I’m not obese, but I’ve got some work to do. I hate the eye rolls I get when I say I’m trying to lose a little weight. Just let me be healthy!

think is on point: that I need some work in the confidence department. Now, let me just say that I’m about 10 light-years ahead of what I was even a year ago, but I do have some work to do. Even this past weekend I was feeling overwhelmed by all the love I was getting and I felt undeserving. It took one of my friends literally telling me I was stupid and that I deserved to feel happy. It’s something I’m working on, but I am doing a lot better!

6. A taste you…

can’t stand: beer. I know, I suck. Acquired taste, my butt. I’ve been trying to “like” beer since college and it’s just not happening. You bet your butts I’ll be drinking a Guinness in Ireland, though. I don’t care how much I hate it – you can’t go to Ireland and NOT have a Guinness.

can’t get enough of: mountain dew. It’s such a hard habit to break! Something I need to break ASAP, though.

7. A song you always…

turn off immediately: I honestly can’t think of anything off the top of my head. Depends on my mood, I suppose.

belt out the lyrics to: anything Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, O-Town, Spice Girls, etc.

8. Animal you…

fear: bees. OMG I hate bees, wasps, bumblebees, anything like that. NONONONONONONONONO.

need in your life right this instant: a golden retriever puppy like YESTERDAY. I have such puppy fever it’s not even funny.

9. Something you…

will never ever eat: Baby animals, unless I’m doing it without knowing. I have a hard enough time eating regular animals knowing that they were killed, so ain’t no way I’m knowingly eating veal or lamb.

would eat for every meal if you were given the chance: a Chipotle burrito bowl (I’m agreeing with Erin on this one)

10. To enhance your looks you…

would love to, but would probably never resort to: getting liposuction. It’s not that I wouldn’t resort to it, I literally don’t know that I’d ever have the funds for it. First of all, I’m impatient and I’m always looking for a quick fix (yes, I know that’s dumb, but I’m being honest). Second, I have bad genes and big butts/obesity runs in my family. Now I’m all for a larger butt, but (heh) it’s almost physically impossible to tone up/get rid of. I don’t want it all gone, but I wouldn’t mind some help getting rid of a little bit.

just stick to: workout, try to eat well and know how to dress my body type. Here’s to hoping I can get some confidence in time to pop my booty into a swimming suit this summer!

Okay, off to work I go! I managed to burn the everliving hell out of my shoulder this morning with my curling wand (beauty is pain, people!), so it’s been an interesting morning to say the least. Happy Hump Day!
