10 (+1) Honest Truths…

Posted in happyness, introductions, Life, Me, randomness, Uncategorized on 06/28/2010 by asante

Hey blog friends!

I saw this meme on another blog a few weeks ago, and although I can’t remember where (I’m a bad blogger, always forgetting my sources lol) I thought I’d do my own. Here’s a list of 10 brutally honest things about me…

1. Every year, I start faking my age about a month early. (I love my birthday!)

2. I HATE my boobs…. but I love my butt :) So much so, that whenever my gym routine starts to eat away at it, I stop. How crazy is that?! lol.

3. I tend to push away more people than I embrace… There are so very few people I truly believe I can trust with my deep dark secrets… And moreover very few people whose company I can consistently and reliably enjoy. I find certain people’s additudes towards life SO grating. Like a full-set across a chalkboard.

4. I am a hopelessly complicated hybrid between a nerd and an artist. I can explain some useless scientific fact one minute, and sketch a still life in the next. Both halves of my brain are in constant fight for domination…. lol

5. I get a little OCD when it comes to cleaning/organization lol. Unfettered chaos makes me twitch….

6. My list of the best things I’ve ever done starts like this: Going natural, starting this blog, taking time off after college, getting my puppy.

7. I cannot control my facial reactions when I see some rachetassness/tomfoolery/silliness happening in front of me. You WILL get the #boobooface…. So act right. lol.

8. If I could travel to any place in the world, I would want to go to: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil or  Jakarta, Indonesia.

9. As much as I gripe about the abomination that is Atlanta Crunk Rap, I’ll “Dougie”, “Lean Wit’ It”, “Walk it Out” and “Snap my Fingahz” with the best of them. lol.

10. I have an fanatical, borderline unhealthy obsession with “Grey’s Anatomy”. I mean I’m a diehard fan lol, I even stuck by them through the “Crazy Izzie” days of season 5. I have watched every existing episode at least 3 times, and I can’t wait for Season 7. Shonda Rhimes is a genius lol.

11. (Bonus!) I type “lol” way too much. I’m a true-blue child of the Internet age  *sigh*.

So there you have it folks, a few random tidbits you may not have known about me. Hope you all are starting your weeks off right!


Hello world…

So as a part of my New Years resolution to change/improve things in my life, I figured it would help to have somewhere to celebrate (and sometimes, lament) how things in my life are going. So much has changed for me between the end of last year and the beginning of this one, and keeping it all inside my head just isn’t an option anymore. Though i’m sure my ramblings won’t be that interesting for many but myself, if you happened to have wandered here, it’s nice to meet you. :)

Few things about me to get started:

1. I have a new-found love and appreciation for bright colors. on anything lol
2. I talk probably way more than any person ever should, but the world will just have to get used to it :)
3. I’m very big on loyalty, and gaining my trust back once lost is not an easy task. I wouldn’t recommend it.
4. My family and my closest friends are the most important thing in the world to me.
5. I have this habit of putting holes and ink places God never intended… and i love every one of my piercings and tatts :) (working on my 4th tatt)
6. I’m a hopeless romantic, and no matter what you say, every girl deserves her Prince Charming… or at least her McDreamy. (and I’m pretty darn sure I’ve got mine :)
7. I’ve decided to start reading for enjoyment again, so any suggestions on books would be greatly appreciated.
8. My favorite number has always been 8, so i’ll stop here. (see, told you i’m random lol.)

Anyways, I think that’s all for now.
