Yesterday my favorite Kayla wrote a post about what someone would learn about her if that sat down for a cup of joe together. After I read it, it got me thinking what someone would learn about me so here I am with my version! I'm not a big coffee or tea person and with my Invisalign right now I mostly drink water so thus the title.
They would find out that I'm a pretty shy person, especially at first, but luckily working in HR the past few years has helped me come out of my box with people. I talk really fast and fumble through my words when I'm nervous. I love singing loudly in the car by myself and when I'm cooking dinner alone with my dogs. I really like an array of music and that helps keep my running playlist diversified. It's only been in the past year that I've gotten more dedicated to running but it's taught me a lot about myself, like I can do hard things such as running at an 8 minute pace or for over 2 hours. I can relate so many life experiences back to running. My parents got divorced when I was 3 so I grew up knowing life with separated parents instead of together. They've both had other marriages and divorces and it's definitely made an impact on how I view marriage, but mostly for the better I think. I have an unhealthy obsession with dogs, mostly my own because I'm allowed to play/cuddle with them whenever I want, but if a strange lets me pet their dog, I'm all over it. When I got to high school, my "best friends" quickly stopped talking to me and I lost a lot of self-confidence. Now I have some truly great friends and value our relationships more than they know. I could eat cereal all day long. I don't own a smartphone. My dream job would either be an interior designer or wedding planner. Peter is my first love and will always hold a very special place in heart no matter what the future holds for us. Super cheesy girly movies/TV shows are always my first choice to watch (just spent lots of late nights watching the Carrie Diaries!). I'd take a relaxing night on the couch with a glass of wine over a bar any day. Friends and Gilmore Girls are my go-to happy shows.
Overall, I hope to live a simple but happy life and to do good onto others. I've been working on keeping a positive outlook on life. While I've gone through some hardships, I have many blessings in my life that I never want to take for granted. I believe a positive attitude will lessen the pain of any tough situation. I'm not perfect at this but I strive to remember that there is always good.
What would I learn about you if we got the chance to sit down? :)
