A'ing some Qs

Thanks to everyone who answered these questions last week! Look for more posts like that in the future.

1. Since every blogger loves to say they are twenty-something, how old are you, really?

I think I've said it enough times over the past month or so - I'm 28. And 28 means you'll have a hangover after drinking only 4 beers. Watch out.

2. If you could have a band play a private show for you and your friends, what band would you choose?

This is a hard question for me, and I came up with it! I know y'all probably expect me to say The Avett Brothers, but I don't know...jk, I'd definitely choose them. I'm not stupid.

3. What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Hard ice cream - mint chocolate chip. Soft ice cream - chocolate and vanilla twist, with rainbow sprinkles. Yes, sprinkles.

4. How old were you when you found out Santa wasn't real? How did you find out?

I wrote about that here. ~~SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT~~

5. What's the first blog you ever read religiously?

Chelsea Talks Smack. She blogs next to never now, which is incredibly depressing, but I still suggest that you read some of her older posts. Start with this one. Then this.

Things I'd do differently...

I watched About Time last weekend (and the answer is yes: I did lose my shit at the end and questioned why I set myself up for all of those tears, I knew it was a sad movie!) and it got me thinking about times I wish I could go back and change. Different moves that I would make. Not always huge, life-changing ones, sometimes just a matter of speaking up when I didn't.

Actions, or sometimes inactions, that have changed the course of my life, in a way. Or, maybe not at all. I guess I'll never really know. But here's a short list (because the full list is too long) (maybe this can be a part one, of many) of things that make me wish I could close my eyes, clinch my fists, and travel back in time. Things that my future self wants to smack my past self for doing...or, you know, not doing.

1. When you go to a college open house, and learn that the major you think you wanted to study, really wasn't what you thought it was - ask questions. Find out how to pursue what interests you, and chase that. Don't fall back on something that you know will make your parents happy, because it will never make you happy.

2. When someone isn't your "cup of tea" -- tell them. They have a right to know. It won't be easy, and it sure as hell won't make you feel good, but it's the right thing to do. And know that the longer you wait to speak up, the harder it gets. And also know that saying it now doesn't count for much.

3. When a guy sends you a text message that obviously should have been sent to another girl, call him out on it. You like to play the part of the cool, detached girl, but you're only hurting yourself when you do. Don't let him off the hook so easily. In fact, turn around, drive back to his house, and ask him to explain himself, to your face. And once you've heard him out, turn on your heels and run. He's not good for you.

4. Don't let other people make you feel bad about your choices. You shouldn't have to explain yourself over and over to someone, especially a friend. Apologize when you should, forgive when it's right, but remember that some people are best kept at a safe distance.

5. Stop dying your hair brown. You're suppose to be blonde. Accept it and move on.

What's something that you would do differently if you could?

Alissa Lately

reading //  I just finished Wild. Have you read it? I think the entire Internet has read it/is reading it. I enjoyed it, and I'm excited for the movie. I also really liked Tiny Beautiful Things (by the same author, Cheryl Strayed). I recommend reading that if you haven't already.

sitting // In a lime green chair, with my shoes off, and my feet propped up on a garbage can. It's the definition of classy.

eating // Nothing so far today. I skip breakfast, always. It's a terrible habit of mine. Then I eat around 10am, if I remember to. Today, I forgot.

beginning // To plan something so incredibly exciting. Mum is the fucking word until details are confirmed. I'll share what I can, when I can.

missing // My bed. It's another grey day, and I would be happier if I could spend it in my comfy bed, watching Parks and Rec on Netflix.

wishing // That this weekend would hurry up and get here. Ikea and Birbigs on Saturday! Stay tuned for vlogs on vlogs on vlogs.

loving // The new conditioner I bought last night. Actually, I've used it before, but not in a while. Try this out if you dye your hair all the time like I do.

drinking // Just finished coffee, now it's time for water.

listening to // Lisa Loeb. Remember her? I downloaded a bunch of her songs around 2am a couple weeks ago. Apparently that's what I like to do when I can't sleep. Ugh, brb while I drive around and belt this song at the top of my lungs. I'll pick you up and you can join me, if you'd like.

thinking about // 8,000 different things. Mostly work related, but I'm also thinking about food. What? I didn't eat breakfast, remember?
