Truth. I started drinking black coffee when I wanted to lose weight in high school. I was pretty overweight, and thought to myself, “how to models live? Black coffee and crackers.” Now I can’t drink coffee with sugar or cream. Gotta thank my 17 year old self for that one. If you’re wondering, I lost close to 40 pounds in 9th/10th grade by joining the marching band and the swim team. Yes, marching helped me lose weight. I love band.
Truth. I’m a sore loser, but I’ll never show it. In college, I ditched studying for finals to practice NBA2k7 because I lost in public even though it was my first time playing. I despise losing, and I don’t like being wrong. I did the same with Guitar Hero, Counterstrike, Age of Empires, and a lot of other games. Though with Guitar Hero, I never did master the pinky.
Truth. I have no problem admitting I’m wrong, I just really have to make sure I’m not wrong about the same thing again, for my own sake.
Truth. My childhood dream job was to be a housewife. Yup. I wanted to be the wife that baked cookies, took care of the children, the American Dream. At some point it changed to cooking, because I absolutely love culinary arts. Then, in college, I got busy, stopped cooking for fun. Hated doing the dishes. All that piled on. Now I just watch a ton of cooking shows, and I’m satisfied.
Truth. I don’t like drinking because it doesn’t taste good. For me, it isn’t like acquiring to the taste of coffee. Also, I turn red, I get hot, it get’s hard to breathe, etc. But all in all I just don’t like not being sober.
Truth. Sleeping is by far, my favorite thing to do.
Truth. Music is not my world, but it makes it a lot better. I enjoy classical music because of how music is being created through incredible instruments. That’s some real music. String instruments and the piano are my favorite.
Truth. I take pride in knowing random facts about random things. I like being in the know that others’ may not know, but I enjoy it even more when we can share that knowledge together.
Truth. I sucked in school. I would study for days and never achieve the grades I wanted. Things didn’t click, and I never understood.
Truth. Loyalty is one of my greatest features.
Truth. I don’t take life serious, until it’s serious.
Truth. I’ve dated some, but I’ve only been in love once. It was a great love. It showed me happiness, anger, sadness, independence, codependence, and most importantly, it gave me the me that I am today. The relationship helped me wake up to reality, to get serious about school, and to get serious about my future.
Truth. I love independence. I like being alone. I don’t like being lost, but I like being lost in thought. I like traveling alone and discovering things on my own. I like spending days by myself, doing whatever I want to do without catering to other peoples’ wants and needs. I love not doing anything but doing everything that I want to do.
Truth. I joined the Peace Corps because I truly feel that everyone in this lifetime deserves an equal opportunity to the life that I was given. It wasn’t a lot, but it was enough for me to feel fortunate and to feel grateful. And if I can help just one person realize the possibility of their future expanding? Then it’s more than I could ever ask for. I really don’t care about the money, because I have none. But I care about my overall happiness, and to know that I did what I always wanted to do, that’s something to be happy about.
Truth. Breaking the rules makes me very uncomfortable. I was once a rebel, but not anymore.
Truth. And this one is a big one. I believe in moving forward. Nothing good comes from dwelling or regrets. You can either fix it, or make sure it doesn’t happen again. My dad always says, “shit happens.” And yes, shit sometimes just happens. Stop wasting your time on what could have been or should have been. Move forward so it can be.
Truth. I lived a dark 2010-2011. I was upset at the world, pissed off at everyone, and constantly thought, “why me?” I had a horrible attitude and a horrible view towards everything, and thought the world was out to get me. A great friend helped me see the positive in every negative, and taught me to take life a little less serious, and turn things into a positive point of view.
Truth. I’ve had an amazing (
2011 2012- )
One last truth. There’s a chance I may delete this tomorrow, because I’m uncomfortable.
