I’m a person of simple needs. I’m not very complicated or fussy. But without certain things, I’m just a blob of flesh. So, to let you all in on what makes me tick, here is my list of ten things that I most definitely cannot live without. (besides air, food, water, and shelter)
I really don’t like having to buy a bunch of really fancy tops because those cost money and I’m a student who makes minimum wage. So, to jazz up one of my tshirts or sweaters, I like to use a scarf. I own about 25 scarves, which is a lot compared to everyone I know. How did I get into the scarf fanatics? I was reading an interview with Selena Gomez and she was talking about how she has a whole drawer filled with scarves and I was like, “Hmmm, let’s try scarves!” So yeah, scarves are a daily part of my wardrobe. They are my life source.
As I said last Monday, I just got my new laptop and I love it. Honestly, I went two years with a laptop and one without, and it was tough. I didn’t realize how much I used my laptop until I didn’t have one! And I don’t just use it for like Facebook and Twitter. No, I use it for writing class essays, emails, research papers, discovering new blogs, etc. It’s something that I use daily because so much on my life needs to be done with a computer. I’m not dependent on technology but I really like having my laptop to get me from Point A to Point B when it comes to getting stuff done.
Unfortunately, when God created me he put oily skin in my genes. So I have acne (though not much). Plus, I’m __% Irish and have very fair, red skin. Therefore, when it comes to getting ready and looking presentable, I love to use a little foundation to even me out and not look like a giant zit head. I do not leave the house unless I have foundation on. And for those who have seen my bare face, we all know it’s a whole lot better with foundation on.
Because I am secretly British (I was in Acting one year and we were reading Noises Off and I was reading a part and all of the sudden my teacher stopped me and was all, “You sound like you’re authentically British. That is so cool!”) I really like a lot of classic British meals. If I eat breakfast it’s usually boiled egg and soldiers, scrambled eggs and toast, poached eggs on toast, etc. I just really like toasted bread with butter. Even though it is incredibly bad for me and I should stop eating it. I just love it so much!
5. To-do Lists
I’m a list freak. I make lists for everything. I would not be able to find my bottom without a list. I make lists for homework, for laundry, for university, for weekly wardrobe, etc. I just really like making lists. And because I get so busy, they are really helpful when I don’t even know which side is right side up. Lists are like my holy grail. They save me from all that is bad.
I drink at least two cups of tea a day. It’s that Brit in me coming out. On a good day, I drink about four. Two in the morning, one after school, and one right before bed. My favorite is green tea. I could drink green tea all day and survive. It’s so good for you and it tastes so good. It’s the perfect beverage on the planet. I went a week without tea and…I don’t even want to talk about it.
I’m a cinephile. I spend more than an appropriate time watching, commenting, and fangirling about films. They are like my life’s blood. I’ve lived with films for more than a decade and they just make me the person I am. In my Acting class we play this game called Quotes, where you have to say quotes from films. I have never lost that game because I live off quotes.
8. Bobby Pins
I have an ongoing game with my best friend about how many bobby pins I can put in my hair in one updo. I have a lot of hair, long and thick, and when I do a bun or some other impressive look, I have to use lots of bobby pins. Yesterday, when I put my hair in a simple bun for a birthday party, I had nine bobby pins just for the bun part, not even for my bangs! I have a huge stash of them just for all my hair needs. Without them, my hair would just hang limp on my shoulders.
I love fall. Fall is the best season. And that’s because I can wear a cardigan every day and no one can complain. I own about 15 cardigans. I love wearing them because they are comfortable and easy to wear and you can put them over just about anything and look like you’ve actually put together an outfit. I can now freely admit that last year, when I had people saying, “Oh, your outfit is so cute.” 25% of the time I had just put on jeans, a top, a scarf, and a cardigan to make it look nicer. You can now see just how lazy I am
As you can see from my blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and various other social networking sites, I quite like the internet. My parents might call me a vigit, but honestly, all the things I like are on the interweb. JacksGap, dogs wearing sombreros, online shopping, this gif, etc. I really like the internet. It’s just…just a place where I can be me.
