Real Talk Tuesday: The Facts of Me

Hello my kitten whiskers! How was your 3 day weekend? I hope it was restful!
This past week I have been super uninspired and I'm sure you can tell from looking around. It's been a while. Anyways, Monday night rolls around and I realize that I have nothing for RTT. And then Whitney at I Wore Yoga Pants saves my butt by hosting the Facts of Me link up. Thanks for that Whitty Pie. 
So without further adieu:

The Basics:

~I LOVE the Lord. He is good all the time, and I am able to love because He first loved me.

~My favorite color is blue

~I can't handle cold weather

~My perfume of choice is Daisy Eau So Fresh by Marc Jacobs

~I'm addicted to Modern Family, Bones, New Girl, Criminal Minds, and Nashville. 

~For more than half my life I wanted to be a dolphin trainer. Now I want to be a human trainer. Oh the irony

~ Before we had met, I had to ask my (now) boyfriend to dance. But don't worry I still made him ask for my number.

The Serious:

~I am subject to completely random and unreasonable anxiety attacks. Example: Meeting a friend for a coffee/study date after 6 PM. All of a sudden, for no good reason at all, I just can't handle the thought. And heaven forbid we carpool. Sheesh, talk about airways constricting.

~If I come across confident, I'd say that's pretty accurate. I'm truly confident in who I am..and who I am is a girl who makes slightly awkward situations as awkward as humanly possible.

~Speaking of confidence, I am more self-concious of my complexion than anything else about me.  

~I'm currently in the middle of a 4 year program working towards a degree in Kinesiology. While it's good, my main dream in life is to be a wife and mother. Part of me feels like I'm putting off my life. Then I wake up and realize that degree = $ = happy family. So it's all good.

~I am legally blind. My glasses are stronger than my mother's and grandmother's combined. If I weren't wearing contacts I wouldn't be able to see the computer screen right now.

~I am a conspiracy theorist. For real. Ask me, I'll tell you. Or maybe I won't, that might not end well.

The Random:

~ ~I get my best ideas in the shower. Oh, everyone says that? Well I mean it. Almost every single time I shower, I kick myself for not owning a waterproof notebook.

~ I love to play the guitar, but only when I'm alone and no one can hear me, because I am no good. My sweet, sweet boyfriend has remained neutral on the topic.

~ My motion light makes me paranoid, even though I know it's just the neighbor's cat.

~ I own a 2 foot baton taser, and I keep it under my bed. If you think I'm ridiculous, refer to the above fact.

~ When it comes to buying home decor items, I am THE MOST indecisive person you will ever meet. I currently have a dog blanket draped over my bedroom window because I have bought and returned curtains at least 4 times.

~ I have self-diagnosed myself with selective OCD. My closet is color coordinated, my bathroom counter can not have clutter, but I'm a walking tornado when it comes to books, papers, shoes and department store bags. I've stopped trying to figure it out.

~I have listened to Vanessa Carlton's White Houses on repeat for the entire duration of writing this post.

If you made it through all that, thanks so much. Leave a comment if you can relate, I'd like to know that I'm no the only freak around here!


  1. I need a taser because I'm terrified of the dark too! and the motion light? I can't even.

  2. I love Nashville! One of my favorite shows for sure :) and super cute pictures of you and your man!

  3. I am fascinated by Link up... It is fun to find out fun info about other bloggers. Makes you realize that even though we live all over the country and have totally different lives... we are all a little bit alike!! Now I want to download that music you were listening to!!


  4. LOVE THIS! I just did mine today, what a fun link up! IM SO WITH YOU ON ANXIETY. I swear the older I get the worse it gets!! I used to be the same way (before kids) and hate riding wit pppl.

  5. I am completely addicted to Bones also (I swear I have seen every episode at least 5 times!) and agree with you on the motion light. It gets me every time! Love your list girl!
