Can you tell that I just got out of my first Italian class of the semester?
Now that I am back in classes and back to my usual work schedule, my life is back to being more boring than normal. Go on, judge my grandma lifestyle, do it! I will beat you with my cane and splash your face with prune juice.
But lucky for me I also had an awesome link-up planned for today, thanks to Miss Whitney, over at I wore yoga pants to work. So, let's get on with the show so you can learn some silly, strange, odd and maybe useful things about me.
It takes me a solid hour and a half to get ready. And that's if I am in a hurry. From the moment I step into the shower to the last spray of PINK Body Mist, it takes me a good 90 minutes; on a good day. If I know I have time, it can take me three hours. My hair alone takes me a good 45 minutes to an hour because I have to blowdry it, then use my round brush to blowdry it straight and then pick my weapon: straightner or flat iron. Add five minutes to that process if I decide to wear my bangs that day - that's just a struggle. My makeup doesn't take long, I was never super artist with eyeliner and eyeshadow. I would rather not have people staring at my face becuse it was extra colorful.
My nails always need to be painted. I think unpainted nails are ugly and just a big old NO. I dont even care if I have to use tacky nail stickers - like I am currently wearing zebra ones - to have something on my nails, I will do it. Even though I hate myself everytime I paint my nails because I know they will get ruined at work #cashierprobz. But, none the less, I have an army of Essie nailpolish and I am not afraid to use them.
I can only drink Diet Coke. No waitress, Pepsi is not okay. Pepsi makes me extra burpy and bloated and I just don't like it. I mean, if Coke is good enough for the polar bears in the North Pole, that is good enough for me, dangit!
When I was in high school, I had an emo/rock phase. I mean, didn't we all? My freshman-sophomore year of high school, I wanted to be Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. All I did was wear black nail polish, straighten my hair pin straight everyday, wear skinny jeans with vests and converse. I mean, it wasn't cute at all. Then my junior year I wanted to be Lauren Conrad. My senior year I wore sweatshirts all the time. After talking with a friend about this recently, I am now Demi Lovato meets Lauren Conrad. I love frilly and girly things, but I still love my leather jacket and studded combat boots.
This photo was from the later years of the Demi Lovato phase.
I work with my dad. It's not all it's cracked up to be, really. We both work at the same market and he is a manager of the butcher shop and I am a cashier. It used to be nice when I started working there 3 years ago. He would buy my lunches and make sure I was okay. Now, he embarasses me, doesn't love me alone and sticks his nose into all my business at work. Love ya dad!
I am a theater kid. I always will be, I am sure of it. I love being in plays and shows and I also love writing them and putting them together. I have had some doozy of roles in my day, but I always had a blast and it was always a fun time. I love going to see shows and I will jump on any chance to see one. Though, I have yet to see one on Broadway. Hint, hint, MOM!
I talk way too loud. I am Italian, and I don't apologize for it. So what if the people down the street know that my car mats are filthy, I probably entertained them for a few minutes. Your welcome.
I have a beauty mark in the corner of my eyes and everyone thinks it's dirt/makeup. Yes, it's a beauty mark and no, no matter how hard you rub it, it will not go away. I used to hate it, but now I have come to accept it. I was born this way, baby ~
Everyone tells me I look like Taylor Swift. I may or may not have started this rumor, but tons of people jumped on the bandwagon. It really depends on the day, I am not going to go out all over and say that I look like her all the time, it really does depend on the day. But, I am not hating on it.
Can ya see it? Yeah, I know you can. Just a little bit.
I have had about 6-7 dogs in my lifetime. My current pup Ruby is the longest reigning dog in the house. Our family has had a ton, and then we eventually end up getting rid of them, selling them to loving home, because they were just a terror in the house or my dad didn't like them. Fortunately, dad likes Ruby. So, we are on a good one.
I don't have any games on my iPhone. I don't like games unless they are on other people's phones. I would never waste my space on a game when I can have five different photo editing apps.
Thanks Whitney for giving me an excuse to talk about myself today.
Love ya, girl!
