After bartending last night, I slept in today. The result: a compulsion to share everything with you and a need for puppy cuddles. To satisfy the second item, I’ve trapped Tessie on the couch with me. To fulfill the first, I’ve put together a list of eight things you probably don’t need to know about me.
1. I don’t like pants. Or clothing in general. Really, it’s mostly a hatred of shopping for new clothes when old ones wear out. It’s time-consuming, and for a 6’1″ woman, expensive. I don’t like spending money or judging my body, so shopping is a generally poor experience.
2. I’m clumsy. Adam calls me Baby Giraffe. If I’m leaning on a counter, there’s a 40 percent chance I started falling over and tried to make it look cool. I probably shouldn’t be allowed to own a high temp glue gun. Oh well. Thanks, Internet!
3. I’m crafty. I love knitting, sewing, and making things by hand. In preparation for the wedding, Adam’s helped me make five textured paper balls out of coffee filters, wiffle balls, and hot glue.
4. Taylor Swift’s music is catchy. And I don’t hate (most of) it.
5. Music Through The Night is rad. In fact, I listen to it on the way home after almost every shift.
6. Vodka isn’t my thing. Whiskey and beer are. But if vodka is your spirit of choice, order it proudly — the most important part of a drinking experience is that you’re happy with what you consume.
7. Writing isn’t a hobby. It’s what gets me out of bed, keeps me moderately sane, and puts my mind in order. It’s not a hobby or a passing fancy — it’s my trade. I use that skill to make money.
8. I vote. And I believe that each adult within the U.S. political system has a responsibility to educate themselves on the issues and exercise their political voice, both in and out of the voting booth. With that said, if you exercise your first amendment rights on Facebook approximately 1,293 per week, I maintain the right to hide your posts.
