Who is the Average Honey?

29 Oct

Many of us read blog after blog after blog without knowing the expertise or personal background of the authors. I decided to open my book just a little bit more! Feel free to ask more questions!

What is the best job you ever had?

Server! During summer breaks as a college student I worked at this small mom-and-pop seafood restaurant built from the ground up by my boss and his wife. Their son, my manager, was an excellent leader who really knew how to brand the restaurant and make it a great experience for the employees and the patrons. Those were awesome summers full of great food, cheap beer, and lots of laughs!

What is your aim for this year?

That’s easy! Become a better blogger! I realize my blog seems a bit scattered in topic so I really want to zero in on a few major ideas and develop my thoughts on those while also developing and engaging with my audience.

What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?

When a group of my friends decided to rent a beach house in North Carolina for a week, I was devastated to find out the week they reserved was the week AFTER my spring break from college. Spontaneity got the best of me and I skipped a week of classes and work to hang out by the beach in an enormous house with awesome people. I didn’t miss much.

Who in your family are you most like?

I am my father’s daughter. Just like him, I am a people-person, I love telling stories and am very money conscious. We also share our loud laugh and inner control freak. He is my best friend, my biggest fan and an all-around great person.

How did you rebel as a child?

My rebellious attitude toward my mother began at an early age when I used to slam my door in order to make a statement. As a teenager, I used to sneak out just to hang out with my friends who were allowed to stay out later than I was. We never did anything mischievous, it was enough of an adrenaline rush just to have made it out without getting caught! Those days are over and my mom and I are closer than ever.

Which was the last restaurant you went to?

Pizza Hut! Pepperoni pan pizza is the usual!

What’s something that can always make you feel better?

This is an easy one. Cozy pajamas, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and hot vegetable soup!

whoami?

12 Feb

8:57 a.m. alarm goes off. Since my day conveniently begins at 10 every morning, I make an attempt to wake up at 8:30 and actually put myself together.

We all know that never happens, right? I mean let’s be serious. Who ACTUALLY cares whether I look put together. You got it… no one. My supervisors at work only need us to “dress comfortably” whatever that means. I suppose pajamas would be comfortable but obviously that can’t happen. Regardless, my usual outfit this time of year consists of jeans, a sweater/hoodie, and some sperry’s.

Since I’m super involved on campus, I always have somewhere to go, a meeting to attend, a call to make, or an email to respond to. My life is always on the go. I’m always thinking ahead. But it’s that kind of pressure and adrenaline that I absolutely love. It feeds me and keeps me going. Well that and caffeine.

Luckily, this semester I’m only taking 3 classes, all of which only meet once a week. And since I’m far along in my college career, I had the luxury of taking classes I WANTED to take, not requirements. The other 6 credits are my internship which is paid, pretty well I might add.

Spare time? What is spare time? Kidding. I do have some spare time and unlike most 22-year-old females, I watch a lot of GSN or Game Show Network. Family Feud and The Newlywed Game are my shows. Don’t judge. But I also go to bars, shop (obviously at Forever 21 even though that isn’t true), and cook in my free time.

…Since I’m basically an old, saggy fart, I’m usually asleep on weekdays by 12:30 a.m.

 

This is much more difficult than I thought it would be. How does one explain who they are in just one blog post?

I suppose it will come over time. Feel free to ask questions of all kinds! I’m pretty much an open book.
