Well well well…Welcome to my first thirteen hour day in years. I’m feeling pretty old…Well, not old. I think that I’ve gotten far too comfortable with the easy job and no classes for so long…I mean, for goodness sake, I used to commute to school, have a full day, and work 2 jobs…I pulled it off back then without any whining.
I need to snap back to it damn it! This should be child’s play for me…I’m ready to take on the semester and I do love my job (No, really).
So for today’s Thursday Thirteen, I figured I could just give you guys some background about me that might come up in references in blogs or in conversation…I tend to forget that I’ve only had this site up for a few months because I’ve been blogging for years.
1 — I am majoring in International Affairs so my classes are pretty political and history oriented. I chose this major because I love it!
2 — I currently work at a trade association in the energy industry. I work with two departments: Government Relations & Communications.
3 — As you may have gathered, I still live at home with my family which is a problem for reasons both obvious and not so obvious. I’ve started saving up and have a goal date of June so I may be blogging about savings, money, finances, etc. The Moving Out Fund will be referred to as M.O.F. in future conversations.
4 — I am not a mother but about 90% of my female friends have children. I’m very maternal, even at 23 and am a sucker for kids. So I might do parenting blogs once in a while but obviously never in the “I know what I’m talking about” mode…Probably more of a discussion and asking parents for their input.
5 — I am not in a relationship but I am not available/single. I *am* very much in love and never feel the need to justify my choices regarding my ‘relationship’.
6 — I don’t blog about sex anymore but there was a time when it used to be a common topic of conversation. I do write erotica but I haven’t in a while. I will write a general blog about sex and the ‘evolution’ of how much I choose to share.
7 — Though I do not blog about sex (By choice), I am VERY open about it and don’t think anything is too taboo to talk about among friends. Depending on my mood, I can get pretty “guy-like” when it comes to sex and vulgarity.
8 — Obviously, I LOVE music. I am lyrics freak and my away messages or any status messages I put up usually reflect the kind of mood I’m in with a lyric from a random song. This does tend to drive people insane…
9 — I am unapologetic for the choices that I’ve made in my life. Good, bad and ugly, they are MY choices and I suffer any consequences for them. I do however, tend to say “I’m sorry” a lot because I really do wish I could make things better for everyone in my life at any given point.
10 — I don’t MEAN to offend but I will more than likely offend you at some point. I’m open to any conversations, concerns, etc.
11 — I love interacting in my blog, which is why that “Reply” feature is in the comments. Blogging is the best way to keep in touch with some of my friends and it does help me get through the day faster. Feel free to reply to each other’s comments and have conversations…My blog is an open forum, 24/7.
12 — Because I love laughing, I tend to love stupid things like LOLCats, websites such as overheardinny.com and stupid movies. I also love to share anything I find funny with my friends in the hopes that at least ONE person will smile. The rest of you might think I’m a loser but that’s OK 😆
13 — I AM a loser. Dork. Random. Nerdy. Geek. Bratty. Whiny. Diva-like. Quiet. Shy. Reserved. Moody. Happy. Sneaky. Sarcastic. Bitchy. I can actually go through all of those moods within the span of maybe 20 minutes on a given day 😯
