Allow me to formally introduce myself...

Not to be confused with "Ho Hey", which is a wonderful song by The Lumineers.
Happy Wednesday. I hope that your mid-week is filled with unicorns, glitter and rainbows.

Now now, don't things look a little bit snazzier around here? Well, I can thank the most wonderful and amazing Stephanie from Stephanie G Designs. I won a free service from her a while back and she gave my blog a much needed make-over. Just what it needed! Thanks chicky! She dealt with my picky nature all after the holidays and just weeks before having a baby! She is a saint, I tell ya!
I would like to take today to pull a Whitney - not really, but really - and make a post introducing myself to my new followers, because I have been kind of taken back by the new ones that I have recieved. Even though I am still starting out, I still appreciate each and every one of you that read my crud and proudly and publicly decided to show that you follow my insanity by clicking "follow". You da bestest, baby boos.
So, allow me to clue you into my crazy blonde self.
My name is Marissa. To my family, I am Marissa-Faith. To my friends I am Riss. To my customers I am Bertha. To my co-workers I am Taylor. To my Italian friends I am Maria.  I have way too many nicknames from way too many people. You can call me anything you want, except late for dinner. I like nicknames and totes enjoy them, so if you are creative, take a shot at it.
I am a college student studying English - so I should probably be better at this writing thing, eh? Pft, who really cares about that. Anyway, moving on. Sorry mom. When I am not walking with purpose around my college campus, avoiding eye contact by any means necessary, I am ringing out loud, obnoxious people at a local Italian market. I love my co-workers, they are just a ball and we are one big, crazy, dysfunctional famiglia. Fun fact: I work with my dad! He is the butcher at the deli. Again, moving on.
I am not the most uninteresante person out there. My life is pretty average, to be quite honest.
I am that girl that catches up with old friends and they tell me all these amazing things and then that portion of the conversation where they say "so, what's new?" and I laugh uncomfortably and say "nothing". Then, they continue to pry and I am like "well, this lady yelled at me at work because I didn't label her cheese ravioli..." and the conversation usually ends there. See, not interesting.
Now, here is the portion of the post where I just list random things about me:
- I like to think that I can speak Italian. I usually break out into random Italian when the conversation leads itself where I can respond in any Italian I know. I wish I were foreign.
- I am Taylor Swift. I strongly belive that. Haters gonna hate. Gators gonna gate. Waiters gonna wait.
- I spend very large amounts of money at Target on things I don't need. I usually find myself saying "what the heck did I even buy?" and then just shake my head and grab Starbucks to ease the pain.
- I love Zumba. I am pretty sure I look mad awkward when I am dancing, but I am convinced that I look like Jennifer Lopez, so it's all totes wonderful.
- I have a nail polish addiction. I am going no further with this sentence.
- I love coffee. Well, caffeine in general, actually. It's a horrid habit. (Yes, you read that in Lindsay Lohan's British accent, I know you did.) I love coffee and I don't know why. I tried to fast it once. I managed two weeks and then was so sick from withdrawls. Needless to say, I have coffee multiple times a day. It's like my water.
- Adam Levine is my man. Don't even try to fight me. I will win. I just will.
- I have a problem with emoji's. I love texting my friends and over-doing the emoji's. I just think they are so cute and add a little pizzazz to a text, tweet or anything. They are adorable and I love them.
Well, now that you all probably think that I am a weirdo, I am going to stop this crazy train here.
If you have any questions for me, I am totally open to answering questions.
If you also share any of my weirdness, let me know so I can feel better about myself.
Toodalooo loved ones.
Go take a journey.
