Me, Myself, and I - September

1) When you're feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?

Listen to happy music, play with my cat, watch an old sitcom. I am pretty easy to cheer up, most of the time.

2)  If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?

I really love the one I am in, because I love new technology. But other than that, I think I would have been good in the 60s. I think I would make a decent hippie. I am very pro-real food, natural cleansers, peace and love, but I can also be very contradictory... (see below)

3)  What is the most creative Halloween costume you've ever worn?

One year I was a punk rocker.  I never could convince my parents to buy me a costume (those suckers are expensive) so I wore an old ratty Ozzy t-shirt that my mom had fixed so that it would fit me, put gloves on and one of my belts and I was good to go.

In retrospect, I think this is a more extreme version of who I already was.

(Were we all this scary at 16, or was it just me?!)
(P.S. I still love Slipknot, though.)

Funniest part of that story is that my mom did the same thing for her work's Halloween.
Psst.. Please don't tell her this image is on the internet! She will kill me.

4)  Five weird things about you we wouldn't know without being told?
1. This is my natural hair color.  I stopped dying my hair about three or four years ago.

2.  I still love 90s pop. N'Sync. Backstreet Boys.
I even listen to them at work sometimes.

3. I hate having wet hair on my skin.
When I get out of the shower I always have to put it up until it dries.
Because I am lazy and don't like to blow dry.

4. I am really hippy about some stuff (see question 2) like dye free laundry soap and using natural cleansers and using recycled materials, but I still drink soda occasionally (more and more rarely, yay!) and eat meat.
Is that weird?

5.  I have an old Photobucket account from when I was 16.
Hence where I found the previous pictures.
 Please don't tell my mother.
And please don't make me login to that account ever ever again.

5)  What would you tell your 16-year-old self?

Value yourself. Don't take everything so seriously.
And don't ever.
Dress like this.

...On second thought, it makes for some pretty good blog posts.



  1. I loved reading your answers!! If I would have linked up, all mine would have been similar. There are so many amazing decades that would be fun to live in, I think I would have made a good hippy as well. Along with a pin-up girl in the 50s and a pop diva in the 80s. Your moms punk rock costume is priceless! Love it (:

    Hope you're having a good day!! xox

  2. Those pictures are great! Better hope your mom doesnt stop by your blog today ;) Watching an episode of FRIENDS always cheers me up!

  3. I think it's awesome you mom ended up copying your costume for work.

  4. Kitties make everything better. :-)
