Since I’ve been seeing a lot of new people lurking around my blog and Instagram lately, (thanks for that, btw) I decided to up and write a post about myself. (Is anyone rolling their eyes? I can hear you putting me into the “self-absorbed” category. Ding. There I am). But I’ve never done that before, and since I always love reading other bloggers’ About Me post, I decided to do the same. After you’re through with this, beware, there will be virtually nothing about me you don’t know.
It’s kind of easier to explain what you’re not instead of who you are, so I’ll do this in a question/answer format. It makes me feel like I’m interviewing myself.
Q: If you could have dinner with any person, dead or alive, who would it be?
A: Um, Carrie Bradshaw. We’d munch on our salads and sip on our cosmos and she’d teach me all the things about being an author, about marriage, and about fashion. Also maybe she’d give me her Manolo Blahniks but that’s kind of doubtful considering they were her proposal shoes. Maybe a pair of classy white pumps though. (Did you know that cosmos became increasingly popular after the movie SATC premiered? Talk about Hollywood influence.)
Q: If you could have any superpower at all, what would you choose?
A: To be able to speak any language I wanted at any time.
Q: If you could live in any era, which one would it be?
A: 1960’s and 1970’s. If I’d have been asked that a few years ago I’d have said Victorian but I later realized how much I like indoor plumbing and electricity. So I choose an “era” that has that but also is airing hilarious classic sitcoms. Mostly though I choose that era because of the fashion. I love 60’s fashion.
Q: If you could have any career you wanted, what would it be?
A: Well, wouldn’t it be so cool to be an editor for The New York Times? But I realize since that’s likely shooting for the moon maybe I’ll land among the stars and become a typesetter/coffeemaker for The Carillon. Oh the possibilities.
Q: What is your guilty pleasure?
A: I thought about this, and I realized it’s any pleasure, really. At least any pleasure that I feel like I haven’t earned. (I have non disclosed issues.)
Q: What’s your favorite thing?
A: Drinks. And I realize that that makes me sound like an alcoholic so I’m going to clarify that. I like beverages. Like basically anything you can make me to drink, I’ll like. Although I can be kind of picky, considering I don’t really like red wine, and also not milkshakes. But I do very much enjoy a chilled glass of Chardonnay (I know, how much more girly can one get) and basically any and all hot drinks. Coffee, tea, punch, and what have you. You pour, I’ll drink.
Q: What is your biggest fear?
A: That all my time, hard work, efforts, and good deeds I do to invest in my blog and other people’s lives will one day be for nothing. Also snakes. And knives. I have this irrational fear of accidentally bumping against a knife or sharp edge with my eye.
Q: Name a negative thing about yourself.
A: I don’t know if I’m naive or just immature and ignorant, or what, but I don’t/can’t see the bad in people unless someone literally points it out to me. I’m the kind of girl who believes sales people everything. It’s easy to screw me over.
Q: Name a positive thing about yourself.
A: I’m a light minimalist. Not that’s it’s that positive but I think it’s something cool and something more people should look into.
Q: What is your favorite book?
A: Anna Karenina. There’s nothing more confusing and boring and complicated than a 800+ page Russian novel, and I love it.
Q: What is your favorite movie?
A: SATC. All two of them. Wishing they’d film the third one already.
Q: What’s your biggest pet peeve?
A: When people complain to me about a situation, or “pour out their hearts”, and the tiny grandma inside me gives them awesome advice but they don’t do anything about it. (I don’t need them to take my advice; I just need them to take action after they complain.)
Anyway. That’s the best I knew of how to write about myself without making it an autobiography. (I was born in-) Like I already said, I love reading other people’s about me’s so if you’re a blogger reading this you should also do this and be sure to tag me or something so I can read it too! I’m also open to answering more questions anyone might have. 🙂
