1. I love animals! Share details and photos of your special furry companions. [No pets? Who/What is your favorite cuddle buddy?]
My fur babies are my true loves of my life.
Cody is my child. I sometimes feel like I did birth the little shit haha
Elroy is the one I spend the most time with these days because his current favorite sleep spot is on the pillow next to my head while he paws at my hair.
2. What is your favorite Friday afternoon/evening activity?
My favorite thing about Friday is leaving work. Not even gonna lie! I work. A LOT. Like 50-60 hours/week minimum. Usually I'm off Saturdays, and while I end up going in sometimes (ok, a lot of the time), so leaving on Fridays means that I get at least a few hours of me time to do what I want.....which, let's be honest. I usually end up sleeping.
3. A day in the life: What does you typical day look like?
My usual work shift is 1230-930 at the store so I will go with one of those days....Since I've most likely stayed up incredibly late the night before, I get woken up by Elroy around 630am. I feed him and then roll over and go back to sleep. I might have moved his food and one dish to right by my bed so I can do this. Don't judge. :) I wake up again around 10-1030 and check my phone for a bit - the usual, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Shower and ready to leave by 1215 since my drive to work is only 10 minutes. Work, with lunch from 3-4, leaving around 930 but most nights it isn't until 10. After that it is fair game but most nights end up with me in bed with my laptop or stitching on something for the shop.
4. Do you have any fitness routines? What are they?
Fitness is something that comes and goes with me. At work I'm on my feet all day long running from one side of the store to the other. When I get a few hours or even an hour, I'm at the trail walking or jogging (yes, I JOG now!!!) but that's about it.
5. If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
Nice, France. I've never been there but it looks absolutely picture perfect. And I would get to use my French class!!
6. You've got a whole day to yourself...what will you do?
Watch stuff off the dvr - Scandal and all the American Horror Stories (both seasons!!) are saved on there right now and I neeeed to watch both!! While watching, I'm sewing...or crocheting....or knitting...or something. I can't just sit. And I've got a million ideas racing through my mind to try and a few shows to get ready for.
7. Dream job?
Child Psychologist. Or Elementary School Librarian. I have the fondest memories of my elementary school librarian, Mrs. Early. She, along with my parents, really encouraged me to read and to always hold onto my passion for it. I started working in the school libraries way back then and went all the way through high school.
8. Least favorite chore?
Ugh. Dishes. Or taking the trash out. Both are surefire reasons to get married someday, right??!
9. When do you most feel like a rock star?
When my boss sends me a picture of my departments that I run and tells me I'm doing a great job. He doesn't give out compliments that often so when I get them, I hold onto them and relish in them a bit.
10. What is something you are currently trying to improve within yourself?
Internal happiness is always a struggle with me. I've got a history of anorexia. I've got a history of manic depression. So, I'm just trying to maintain if that makes sense. I like regularity. I like steady. I feel like if I can master steady, then I'm golden.
