I always take on more than I should. I have the hardest time telling people no, especially if they are a friend. Recently, I've been juggling teaching, a new venture (coming in January), the part-time job at the store, and an additional part time job through school. DG asked me the other day why I'm so tired. I swear sometimes he thinks the house just naturally stays clean and that the food magically shows up in the pantry (Hah!).
I am so tired of people tearing others down. I think we should build each other up and get along, despite differences. And no one says we have to be friends; we can be cordial and polite without being "friends." So often I think we forget that.
I'm obsessed with these pens
I bought this
curling wand to try something different with my hair. I've never been super talented at doing my own hair so I'm excited to try it.
I hate double standards. I'm in a situation in my life where there are certain expectations of me, but those are not to be expected in return. From as early as I can remember, I always got upset about things not be fair. My dad used to tell me life wasn't fair and I couldn't get so emotionally attached. At 27, I'm still struggling with this.
When I get stressed out, I spend money.
I definitely have a Type A personality, so I have 3 planners with a different type of pen set that I use with each planner. I have an Erin Condren
Life planner, a May Designs planner
, and then an academic planner
from May Designs. I keep the Life Planner in my work bag, the May book in my purse, and my academic planner in my work bag too.
I love receiving snail mail but I am the worst at mailing cards on time.
I'm a creature of habit. When I go eat somewhere that I had a great experience, I generally won't try anything new because I don't want to be disappointed. A lot of our favorite restaurants, the people already know our order, because DG is the same way.
At what point do people stop being gracious? Saying thank you to someone taking time to do something thoughtful isn't complicated, but is a complete game changer.
