The why? The who, what?
Ever want to know a little bit more about me? Now’s your chance.
I got the inspiration to write this post from Joshua, a gent I follow on Twitter. As I snooped around my feed this afternoon, I clicked through to read his post: Non-Secrets About Me! A great “get to know me” piece, I now can tell you a few things about Joshua that I once couldn’t (which isn’t uncommon for a complete stranger).
What I tell you here is no coveted secret, just a little bit of me wrapped up into one post.
Live music makes me happy. Be it someone famous playing a stadium show or an unknown in a dive bar, I’ve found my foot-tapping-head-swaying-shoulder-shimmying bliss for the evening.
Tea solves problems. Or maybe it is the time that I take to decompress, stop and relax when I drink said tea that solves those problems. Either way, tea is love.
I really dislike lateness. I do not like waiting for people – if you commit to a place/time/deadline/situation then show the person on the other end a little respect and be on time. I’m 15 minutes early usually.
Nicknames rock! I will most likely call you anything but your real name. Feel free to make one up for me, too!
I crush easily and often. I can have numerous crushes at any given time, as a single girl I find it fantastically entertaining. Usually it isn’t the odd dates I go on, that would call for mutual attraction (for the most part), but more so a one-sided romance my mind has created. I need to man-up and confess feelings sometimes, but I am trying to “be the girl” more in relationships. The unattainable, the long-distance, and occasionally it’s married men I know I have no chance with, I don’t touch or tell – just crush.
I don’t like to read. I was never, still am not, the kind of person to sit down with a book and read the afternoon away. This doesn’t mean I don’t read – I’ve come across amazing books and haven’t slept in order to finish them – it just isn’t my pastime of choice. It’s an activity I seldom do.
I talk a lot. If you know me, you already
have told me know this. I can’t help it, it just spews out of me. I think it is endearing, others may disagree.
Strangers are just friends you haven’t met yet. Or enemies you haven’t pissed off yet. Pick your poison, but strangers? I want to meet you. I love asking questions and getting to know new people. Possibly one of the greatest things about tweetups.
I am whatever you say I am. You’ve already written your story for me and made up your mind of what I am. No matter what I do, say or think from here on in, you have developed my tale in your life. Thank you for thinking I am: smart, stupid, driven, under-qualified, slutty, tame, loud, shy, simple, spoiled, healthy, fat, organized, messy, etc., etc.
Thanks for the inspiration, Joshua! Thanks for the lyrics, Eminem!
