31 Day Blog Challenge: Intro. Day 1.

Kate Kearney is definitely someone who inspires me; she’s crafty, funny, beautiful and flipping clever. I’m a huge fan of her blog and she’s taken on this Blog a Day Challenge:




I’ve decided to try follow suit and give it a try, since most days I want to blog but then convince myself why I shouldn’t, or why people won’t care. So here goes the first one!

Day 1: Intro

Here’s a pic that sums me up:


I love Pandas. But like, loooooove pandas. If I could quit my day job to go look after pandas I would (in case anyone has an opening at a panda sanctuary?)

I’m also a huge cat person. I love cats because they choose you. Let’s be honest, dogs are going to wag their tails and lick anyone who so much as looks in their direction. Cats are picky, they don’t trust that easily and so when they choose you, and choose to give you their affections, it’s a great confidence booster. I’m also a very self conscious person with a clear low self-esteem issue if I base my self worth on cats choosing to love me.

I’m also nice. That’s an odd way to describe myself, and nice isn’t necessarily a good word. But I’m consistently nice to people, even if I don’t particularly like them. (If I’m not nice to you, sorry, I can also be a total bitch and you’ve clearly done something horrible to make me stoop below even being polite to you or acknowledging your existence).

I care what people think. That sounds dumb, but I really  care about the opinions of those closest to me, and to a large extent I even care about the opinions of people not-that-close to me. I suppose I take care in giving people the impression I want them to have of me. It’s probably one of the silliest traits I have and causes me the most stress, opinions of people who mean nothing to you shouldn’t matter, but they do to me. It is what it is.

I’m opinionated and a critical thinker (for the most part, sometimes I’m irrational and boyfriend will attest to that!) I don’t keep quiet in most situations, you’ll always know what I’m thinking. In my opinion (the irony) it’s mostly a good trait because you’ll always know what I’m thinking and I’ll always tell you my opinion (again! I can’t stop myself from using this word, even in the face of redundancy), some people want to kick my ass for the most part when I give my unsolicited opinion (ahem, my sisters mostly hate this about me! They’re the top two people on the list of people who would rather punch me in the throat than hear my opinions on absolutely everything!) I pride myself in the way I think about things, I have no problem in admitting when I’m wrong or at fault and I love the fact that I’m never always set in my ways or views on things, I love the fact that I can change my mind if someone presents me with a better, more logical point of view.

That’s me in a nutshell.
