I have kind of been MIA for a little while on here, sorry folks! It’s not that I’ve forgotten about you, I am on here every day! It’s just I feel like I have no inspiration to write, or I start writing and it sounds too forced or fake. Quite the dilemma I tell ya.
So instead of trying to come out with some witty or moving post, I figured I would just tell you about myself. I’ll share some things that I love & things that people may not know about me. So, without further adieu, here it is..
Well, most people will have figured out, I’m female. Shocker. Haha I’m 22 and grew up in small town Saskatchewan. I loved it! We had a tiny run down house. It had one tiny bathroom, small bedrooms, slanted ceilings upstairs & an unfinished basement. I remember wanting SO bad to move out that house but now looking back, I wish I could go there again. My dad received a job offer in a different city a couple of years ago so they moved & sold the house. Some days I’m tempted to knock on the back door & say “Hey! I used to live here! Mind if I snoop around?!” ya.. that might not fly so well.
I’m currently working in one city & living in another. I commute every day now for about an hour each way. I don’t mind it now that the weather is nice & sunny. The scenery along the way is pretty boring. Typical Saskatchewan.. it’s flat! Go figure.
For anyone that may not know, I’m an aesthetician.” Aestha-what?” you may ask. lol For those of you with that question, I do manicures, pedicures, facials, body wraps, some reflexology, microdermabrasion & some gel nails. :) I work at a spa casually doing this & will be going back to more full-time status once I’m done my current job at the end of June. I love it. And no.. I don’t have a foot fetish. I just find enjoyment from making someone’s day a little better. It’s hard to get that result where I am now being a receptionist as I really only talk to people for a minute before transferring them. Whereas at the spa, I spend at least an hour with someone, sometimes a couple of hours, making them feel pampered & relaxed. The best compliment I can get is when a client will fall asleep. In most cases that’s the worst compliment but if I can make someone so relaxed they fall asleep then I’m doing a great job!
If anyone can tell, I love my family. Not just my immediate family but everyone! I have some 2nd & 3rd cousins I’m close with. My 1st cousins aren’t just known to me as cousins. They’re all mostly my best friends. My cousin S is in fact my best friend! BFF’s 4 Life! <3 lol She knows everything about me pretty much.. it may be daunting to some guys & I know it has caused “issues” in the past but hey we’re best friends. Get over it & if they won’t, I’ll get over them!
Believe it or not, I love polka dots. Yes, polka dots. And not just in the “oh they’re cute” kinda way. For some strange reason I find myself gravitating to anything that has polka dots on it! Don’t worry folks my entire life isn’t polka dots & I actually own very little that has polka dots on them. I just retired my bed set that was covered in polka dots for something that is a little more “mature”. I find I have great self-restraint when it comes to purchasing polka dot apparel, maybe it’s because I’ve watched to many “What Not To Wear” episodes & I know my friends would nominate me. I just don’t think I could handle Stacey & Clinton throwing away my beloved polka dots! Minor heart attack right there. I’d totally be that person who spends the first day buying everything they’re not supposed to and they would be sitting watching me on their little tv criticizing every purchase I make. Epic fail.
Aside from family & polka dots, I am very much an animal person. I love them all! Except for reptiles. They’re gross. I have successfully brought 4 animals into my parents house. Not all at one time people! The most we have ever had is 3 animals at once and that’s right now. I have brought 3 kitties home, only one was meant to be the family cat while the other 2 were initially mine. I should have gotten my Dad to sign a waiver stating that I am the cat’s rightful owners because he has taken away all guardianship from me. I know where I get my love for animals from. Well my Mom started calling me the crazy cat lady because seriously, if I could, I’d have more. She said I couldn’t keep bringing them home, so what do I do? I got a dog. HA that’ll teach Mom. She only said I couldn’t bring more cats in, nothing about other furry animals! As much as she grumbles & complains about the 3 pets sometimes, I know she really loves them, deep down.
I like to think about my future & wonder where I’ll end up. I don’t have set plans for myself as I know it’s all about living for today but there are some things that I really want for myself one day. I dream of an acreage. Call me old-fashioned but I want a big garden, a tree with a tire swing, an old house with a wrap around porch & window shutters. I don’t want anything very elaborate. I do like modern but I want something where I can feel cozy & at home in. When I picture what I want, I see parts of my Gramma & Papa’s old farm. Of course an acreage wouldn’t be complete without some animals. I dream of the day when I’ll have horses. Me & horses = love. I’ve never had one, but I had friends who I would ride with a lot. I’m not going to lie, I’d also love to have some chickens & a goat. No purpose for the goat besides to have a goat. Haha I want farm dogs & cats. If there would be no animals I don’t think it’d feel quite right. Okay that all sounds like I have things set in stone.. but in all reality I don’t even know where I’ll be in a year. Nobody really does. It’s just something that I’ve always wanted. I’d also like to throw a hubby & kids into the picture one day but that’s even more distant than my dream acreage!
One thing I couldn’t live without in my life = music. Alright coffee is a close second too but life without music would be
horrible boring! I’ve generally got the radio set to a country station. I once stated to Mom that if I could erase all the song lyrics I know, I could be REALLY smart! Haha ya, can you guess.. I’m blonde too! Oops. But for serious guys, I always have music on it seems and if I don’t you can rest assured that there is a continuous playlist going on up in my head. I love going to the bar & having a country song come on! I don’t care how much my feet hurt or how tired I feel. If a good country song comes on I’m going to be up on that dance floor, dragging whoever I can up there with me!
Well, I think I’ve shared enough for today.. maybe I’ll dig a little deeper one day but for now, the sun is shining & the country’s on the radio so I’m peacing out folks.
Feel free to share something quirky or awesome about yourself with me!
ps. .. I also love Jenna Marbles.. YouTube her.. you won’t be disappointed! Her video about what girls do in the car is so true. You may have to watch it more than once!
