First off, I’m 24 years old and I currently live with my aunt and grandmother….why? well that’s a long story. I am very emotional, which can be good and bad. I care a lot about other people and try to find the good in everyone and that sometimes leads me to surround myself with people that aren’t good for me. I am also my biggest critic so I worry a lot about little things and beat myself up over my mistakes and failures. I am OCD so I am a perfectionist….everything has to be organized a certain way at work, home, etc….it can get a little annoying at times. I really can’t put myself in any specific category personality-wise. I am a mix of all different things. Depending on my mood i can either be a very outspoken, high-heel wearing, girly girl, a sad, shy emo girl, or a dirt-covered, jeans and t-shirt wearing, beer drinking country girl. I guess that can confuse many people, because I am hard to read and difficult to understand….but why be the same all the time when you can have all different types of friends and do all different types of things? I love to listen to music, but again my taste depends on my mood. I can listen to rock at any time…it’s my fav! I also love country, but there are so many country songs that have strong meaning to me so at times I emotionally can’t handle it. I will listen to rap or pop if I’m in a funky, party or dancing kinda mood, but not on any average day. I tend to go with the flow a little too much. If my friends are game so am I. Lately I have been working to change that about myself. I don’t want to be influenced into doing things that I wouldn’t normally do on my own.
I love the summertime and the beach! I like to read love stories and murder mysteries. I have a love for turtles and I have a red-eared slider named Jeffrey. I have been a dental assistant for 5 years and I am currently taking classes so that I can apply for dental hygiene school. I love my job and I feel blessed that I have found something that I am passionate about doing. I want more than anything else to have a family someday. My parents are amazing and they have always been there for me and supported me in every way possible, but they have also taught me how to take care of myself and how to be responsible. I have a big sister who is one of my biggest role models….she isn’t perfect of course, but she is a great person. I envy her ability to be an individual and to stand up for herself and her opinions. I hope to become more like that.
My life hasn’t always been easy and I go through a lot of hard times, but I am strong and I am truly blessed to have everything and everyone in my life. I may not always have the most upbeat and exciting posts, but they are REAL. If you don’t like them don’t read them!
