Well since Blogger's being a poo poo head (thanks for NOTHING Google. Aren't I being punished enough by the government shutdown?), I thought I'd try for something semi-productive and do the quiz meme that Kaelah just posted on her blog.
1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
I don't like eating/drinking first thing in the morning so instead I wash my face and apply sunscreen/moisturizer so that it can soak in before I put on makeup for the day.
2. What is the 3rd picture on your phone? Share it!
I was playing around with Halloween makeup on Sunday so my 3rd picture is an outtake from that (Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas but with purple hair).
3. What TV show are you most excited about returning this Fall?
I'm actually not watching anything returning this Fall but I had a lot of fun watching the first episode of Agents of Shield and would like to get into The Blacklist.
4. What is something really popular that you secretly (or not so secretly) loathe?
Hmm I guess 50 Shades is too easy right? Well due to all the popularity turning me off (you HAVE to love these!) I haven't read any of the Hunger Games series and don't plan on watching any of the movies.
5. Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus points for pictures.
I don't have any pets! It's so sad and I hope to change that soon(ish(). If life was perfect I'd have a cutie just like this one I spotted at the Barracks Row Festival!
6. If you could put together one outfit that represents you perfectly, what would it be?
Hmm, a hard question. My style is consistent and yet eclectic, so I'd say to be perfect it'd either have to be a full a line skirt with a button up top and chunky necklace, or skinny jeans tucked into riding boots with a button up top under a crew neck sweater (with a sparkly necklace).
7. What is your favorite adult beverage?
Rum with pineapple and cranberry juice (a rum Bay Breeze from what I was told).
8. What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Childrens cartoons, hands down. There might be an issue with how much I love Disney Jr., but when I need perfectly forgettable background noise it always hits the spot.
9. What are 3 positive words to describe you?
Committed, Creative, and a Survivor.
10. What is your favorite Friday afternoon/evening activity?
Happy Hour! There's something to be said for just going home and kicking back but when I'm in the mood there's nothing better than cheap eats and drinks with my friends.
11. A day in the life: What does you typical day look like?
Probably pretty boring for most of you :-/. I'm up at 7am, washing my face and getting ready for the day. I work in an office that opens at 8:30am and after arriving I spend the next hours problem fixing for a variety of companies in my suite. Lately it's all been kitchen sink and dishwasher related so I don't think I'll be talking up its good points any time soon.
12. If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
I actually don't know! I haven't traveled a lot and would want to spend some more time (or any time) further up in the NE United States before making a decision (though I loved Hong Kong when I was there - it's just super far away from all my friends!).
13. You've got a whole day to yourself...what will you do?
While I'd love to say I'd sleep away the day and enjoy doing nothing, I'm actually kind of bad at just staying in the house. I like to be outside enjoying the weather (especially in the Fall) so if I could get up late morning, make myself a nice breakfast, and head out into the city that would be wonderful. Especially if there were some farmer's markets or cultural festivals going on that I could immerse myself in.
14. Dream job?
Don't know again I'm afraid. There's nothing that calls out to me enough that I could say definitively 'this is it'. I like books, clothes, makeup, and people, and strangely more than one person lately has told me I should be a stylist. Shrug.
15. Least favorite chore?
16. When do you most feel like a rock star?
Maybe when everything's running smoothly? I'm juggling a lot of balls but when things are going well at both of my jobs and people are happy then I'm happy. Especially when I feel like it's something that only I personally could have done in that particular way.
17. What is something you are currently trying to improve within yourself?
Saying no. I don't want to let people down and am always willing to lend a hand even when it's detrimental to my mental state. Sometimes other people will have to pick up the slack and I'm going to have to let them because it can't always be me.
A picture of my neighborhood shenanigans! DC can take a lot of flack for being so city and not very homey (I'm from NC so it's not like I'm exempt from making this criticism) but SW and around Eastern Market are some of my favorite places and I love hanging out with the local flavor.
