Why is your world upside down? I guess upside down isn’t really the right word. It just doesn’t feel settled right now. I’m someone that likes to be settled so the minute things get stirred up I get scared. Hence my mood swings lately.
What’s the biggest misconception people have about being a server instead of a “9 to 5’er”? I think people don’t realize how hard it can be to have a schedule that is always changing. I can tell you all that having had only 1 full weekend off since January is hard. I get jealous when everyone is talking about their awesome, fun, relaxing weekends and all I did all weekend is work. I also hate that people assume that just because I don’t have a “real” job means I don’t work hard. I work my butt off to the point where I am exhausted at the end of my shifts. And so it hurts when I hear people say those things.
Do you finish reading every book you start? Nearly. In the past few years I can think of only 2 books that I was unable to finish. I’m stubborn and hate giving up so I try really hard to see the book through even if it is horrible.
What TV shows are you watching this summer? Oh gosh… The Bachelorette, Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth and So You Think You Can Dance. I’m also catching up on Flashpoint via Netflix and it’s pretty awesome.
Are you excited for Harry Potter? Are you going to the midnight showing? I’m excited and a little sad. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to the midnight showing or not. I really want to but I’m not big on crowds and I have a feeling it may be a bit crowded… (edit: obviously I have since seen HP and it was AMAZING).
When you were dating did you have a type? Nope. I dated all different types of guys – jocks, nerds, republicans, atheists. I think the only thing that all the guys I’ve been with have in common is their ability to have an intelligent conversation. It doesn’t matter about WHAT just so much as they have brains in their heads.
Are you working on a novel these days? Unfortunately no. I’ve been sort of all over the place lately but I know I need to get back on it. I definitely have some ideas!
How do you get so tan? Do you spend every day outside? Ha! Honestly, even though we have a pool I do not spend every day outside. I’m just one of the blessed few that tans easily. I have a smidge of Native American blood and a smidge of Italian and I always say that’s where my darker skin comes from.
My question is are you trying to make us all jealous? Jealous of? My wonky work hours, my psychotic hair or the fact that I never sleep totally through the night? I’m certainly not trying to make anyone jealous. My life is my life. It’s definitely not perfect.
How do you find your niche in the blogging world? I truly don’t know. I know that my blog grows with me and I try to remain as true to myself as possible while still keeping parts of myself private. My advice is always the same: stay true to yourself and let that shine through.
