20 things

I'm not really a selfie taker. Mostly because I feel like an idiot whenever I do it. I mean, I know what I look like, so its fine. But my mom made me this skirt (and 7 others just like it in different fabrics!!!) so I naturally posted this pic on instagram.

Speaking of instagram, I've seen this tag going around where you posted 20 random things about yourself, and I thought that might be a fun to introduce myself a little more :) 

  1. I hate cherry flavoring, yuckkk! But the fruit is yummy.
  2. I'm usually trying to eat healthy/ on a diet, and failing miserably because diets make me sad. But I still feel like I should lose the weight I gained in college, about 15lbs. I don't want to talk about it.
  3. My self esteem is all over the place. Sometimes, I feel awesome. Other times, I want to hide in a closet forever. Usually because I feel fat. And these emotions usually occur within five minutes of each other. 
  4. I'm constantly thinking about how I can become a better person. Even in little things, like the way I cut meat. 
  5. I also try to look at situations (even stupid ones) from every possible point of view and try to make a decision that will upset the least amount people.
  6. I am a people pleaser. (See above).
  7. I have a fairly sarcastic sense of humor.
  8. I really like the muppets. 
  9. I have minimalist tendencies. Not hard core ones, though. But, I go through my closet probably every month or so and get rid of things I don't wear. I hate the idea of excess. I'm not saying I don't like having nice things, I just can't stand the thought of having 87 purses that look similar. I don't want to have more clothes than it is possible for me to wear. I just don't understand the point. If I'm not continuously using something, I want to get rid of it. But, I want everything that I do have, to be something I love. And side note, I only apply these principles to myself. It doesn't bother me if other people have a ton of clothes, or anything like that.I actually don't even notice. But, I could never own 53 pairs of underwear. There's only one of me. I can only wear one pair of underwear at a time. There are 7 days in a week. I do my laundry every 2 weeks. Therefore, I need about 14-18 pairs of underwear. That's it. But they better be super cute. 
  10. I'm long winded. (see above). But seriously, I cannot stand knick knacks. Again, see above. I have friends who have walked into my room and told me its practically empty. (Side note: I put up pictures on my wall! It doesn't look as empty anymore!)
  11. I'm addicted to chocolate chip cookies from chickfila. Try one. You'll be addicted too. 
  12. Speaking of addictions, one word: pinterest. Follow me. It'll be fun.
  13. I am an incredibly nervous and high stress person. But secretly. In fact, I didn't even realize it until recently. I get nervous about stupid little things. My thoughts get faster, and I have to really think about it to calm myself down. However, you would not know that from just observing me. I hide it very well, most of the time.
  14. I am not a very touchy person, unfortunately. I am kind of trying to get over it. But I'm not trying all that hard. 
  15. I love fashion, but whenever I go shopping, I suddenly have no idea what I am doing.
  16. I have a bizillion things I'd like to become awesome at: photography, yoga, painting, longboarding, cosmetology. 
  17. I LOVE makeup. The minimalist in me is having a really hard time with how much makeup I own. I see a purge in my future.
  18. I love Jesus.
  19. I seriously wish everything in my purse was the cutest thing you've ever seen in your life. But sadly, I'm not quite there yet. Someday.
  20. I really love my life. 
And there you have it, twenty facts about yours truly. Now it's your turn. Tell me everything! Or at least a few, in the comments below and don't forget to follow this blog! :)
