I'd love for you to think that I am as graceful and poised as I appear to be in the above picture, but most of the time I am doing something like this:
One time, I was at the state fair and we realized there was a reporter doing a news story right behind us so I looked, jumped up and down waving, and then turned around, bent over and proceeded to shake what my momma gave me. In a very similar manner as portrayed above. It was a live report. Hi mom! Oh yeah, AND I was completely sober.
But hey, that's me.
I am anything but a morning person, completely type A, and a damn loyal friend. I have to have a cup of coffee every morning or my day just isn't the same. I consider my job to be a daily challenge since I have to act appropriately at all times. I danced for 12 years of my life and I miss it every.single.day. Many, many years ago I wrote an "about me" on Myspace (hey, I said MANY years ago) but not much has changed, so I thought I would include it here with a few edits:
I would be lost in this world without my friends and family. I miss Heather. I miss Lisa. I miss my cousin, Jen. I love my roommate husband. I love my job. I suck at returning phone calls. I'm addicted to myspace Facebook and not ashamed of it. I am anti personals websites, I think there are better ways to meet people. I have a Master's Degree. I am obsessed with spelling and grammar, but still make mistakes. I love to people watch. I wish everyone could be honest. I love to read. I love reality television. I still love Britney Spears but have stopped defending her. I love being tan, but hate being hot and sweaty...most of the time ;) I don't do extreme weather. I don't do extreme sports. I'm still a huge cheerleader. I'm also a huge dork, and proud of it. I don't have much shame. I have a hard time censoring myself. I love the spotlight. I consider myself to be generous. It bugs me when people can't have a good time. It also bugs me when people are petty. I can't stand snobs. Is that snobby? I love to cook and bake, but finding the time is a challenge. I work out because I have to. I couldn't live without my iPod. Or my cell phone. I'm addicted to texting. Music is my life. I love to sing. I love to dance. I will do either of those things at any time, anywhere. Be prepared. I can't drive a stick shift. I am mildly OCD. That's probably an understatement. I am held hostage by my fears. I hate getting lost. I love to sleep. I love the weekends. I love Vegas. I have never lived outside of the greater Sacramento area, let alone another state. I really want to move to San Diego, but don't have the balls. I'm a hopeless romantic. I can't start my day without a shower. I really like meeting cool new people at random places. I am generally a happy person, but have sad days. And I am almost always smiling.
