Going Against My Norm

Today I'm playing a game called "Why So Serious?". It's kind of of what happens when I put my sassy little funny bone away and bring out the real thoughts and feelings buried deep down in there somewhere. It's a rare thing around these parts so don't get used to it but if you'd like to read my answers to some of life's tougher questions then by all means, feast your eyeballs...



1. If you could do one thing differently in your life, what would it be?
Probably go to a different college and have a different major. I always thought I'd go to a big university with good sports teams, tailgating for football games and having my Alma Matter be known for. And that was absolutely not the college I actually went to. As for my major...yeah I don't use it. All I see are the loans and the thousands of dollars I wasted on something that I will most likely never use again because I have no passion for it. And I now realize all the things I actually do have passions for that I'd love to take classes for but have no desire to go back to school. College was a big waste of 2.5 years of my life when it comes down to my degree. Friends, fun, and parties? Covered that. But the real reason we go to school? Yeah not so much. Which brings me to despising the entire educational system but that's for another day another dollar.


2. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
One: Well five years ago I said engaged and I'm not so maybe I'll say that again now? Yeah, I'll be 28 and a half in five years so let's go with engaged. Two: Hopefully accomplishing some sort of creative side thing that would allow me to make extra money and be a little more fulfilled in life. Three: owning a damn puppy.
I'll take that off your hand anytime girl


3. Do you honestly want kids?
Absolutely. Hands down. No doubt about it. Yes. I have always wanted to be a mom. Ever since I was little and used to pretend with my best friend that we were pregnant and then both have a set of twins. When people ask me what I want to be when I grow up I tell them a mom. Except for on dates. I'm not THAT insane. Or am I? Yes I absolutely am because the only reason I ever played LIFE was for the kids in the back of the car. But yeah, I can't wait to have kids. It's half the reason I'm a nanny. This way I get to be an 8-5 mom, get paid for it, then hand him over at the end of the day and head to happy hour. Win, win, win.


4. What has been the best moment of your life so far?
See this question is kind of hard when you haven't really passed any of those "life milestones" yet. As dumb as it is, one of them was the day my cheerleading squad won our conference's cheerleading competition. Cheering was my life and no other team in my high school's history had ever won so after four years of being so close to first we finally did it my senior year. All my hard work of choreographing routines in my kitchen and writing dots all over my class notebooks of formations finally paid off. And my mom has it on video so I can relive it!
Just me and my brace face cheerin' away


5. What is your life theme song?
This is worse than asking me what my favorite Disney movie is. I mean do I go with Monsters Inc. or Finding Nemo...Toy Story or Lilo & Stitch? Impossible. So how about we go with a song that's popular right now for where I'm currently at in my life right now? Yes, that would make this easier. Good job self. My song would be Clarity by Zedd. And the lyric that gets me is "If our love's insanity then why are you my clarity". It's too perfect. And I'm saving the reasoning for another day and dollar too. I'm sensing a trend here.


6. What is one thing you have yet to accomplish that you want to do before you die?
Let's take it back to number three and say have kids. Is that cheating? I hope not, cause I just did it. If I could only pick one thing then it without a doubt would be children.
Me and my little monkey nugget of a cousin


7. If you could do anything you wanted right in this very moment (no consequences, no fear, etc), what would it be?
Something that I wouldn't want to say on Blogland so let's go with rigging the lottery so that I'd win billions of dollars. Come on, you would too. It's the most genius idea ever.

8. If you could choose one thing to be known for, what would it be?
Remembering to live life like it's short. I feel as though I have always had such an ease with this mentality in that I'm constantly doing what I love and want to be doing in that moment. Whether it be going out and getting wild or sitting my ass on the couch with all the junk food in my kitchen. Either way I'm still choosing what's making me happy in that current time in life and constantly remembering to not hold back because, like I always say, "You could get hit by a bus tomorrow". Live your life.
I live by this, plain and simple


9. What has been the most challenging moment in your life?
I feel really awkward having to say that I haven't really had too many challenging moments in my life this far. And I'm knocking on the floor I'm currently sitting on because it's the only wooden thing around. If I had to say something it'd probably be when I was laid off last year and really had to sit down and think about what I wanted to do. I knew I hated the corporate world but I had no where else to go and my NYC rent needed to be paid. It was confusing and hard and stressful. But then I went to the beach and day drank and got over it. See I told you, real challenging.


10. Summarize yourself in one word.
Sour Patch Kid. I realize this is three words but it's one candy so I'm going with it. I'm sour on the outside but sweet on the inside. It truly takes awhile to get to know the real me deep down. I can come off as quite the bitch sometimes simply because I'm not the most outgoing girl at the party but once I open up my shell (maybe I'm an M&M instead?) you'll see that I'm much more and much different from the girl you thought I was the first time you met me.
Gimme all da reds and no one gets hurt


And there you have it. A whole bunch of seriousness asked by the amazing Erin at Living in Yellow who is usually pretty unserious herself so this was pretty fun. Hop on over HERE and try it out for yourself. 

P.S. I can't forget my girl Whitney and her #backthatazzup link up so I'm going to give you the song from question number five. Come belt it out with me because I've been doing it all week while strolling through the streets of Manhattan.
