Ok, I was tagged for this one by Trish, so here goes… six random things about me…
1. I have a group of girlfriends that I’ve been friends with since 7th grade (we are all 23 or 24 now). We consider each other one anothers’ best friends, although after middle school we went to two different high schools between the six of us, then five different colleges (one of the girls and I went to the same school), and now we live in four different states. We are still really close friends even though our lives have taken six completely different paths.
2. I am married, but we don’t have any kids yet and aren’t planning to for at least another 4-5 years. That said, my younger sister has a 7 month old daughter, and I am basically obsessed with her. I love my niece like you couldn’t believe. It’s actually kind of nice that I don’t have kids of my own yet so I can really give her time and attention and spoil the heck out of her. :)
3. I put myself through college by waiting tables and bartending. Working in the restaurant business is crazy like none other, it is some of the most fun I’ve had in my life in addition to some of the most stressful days/nights/hours/minutes of my life. I’m so glad I don’t have to deal with that kind of unpredictability anymore, but sometimes I really miss doing it and seriously consider getting a part time bartending job just for the heck of it.
4. I love burritos from Chipotle (if you don’t have Chipotle in your part of the country, I am sad for you). It is probably my favorite food in the entire world. I could easily eat one every day and still crave them. I also like Qdoba but I’m not sure I like it quite as much.
5. I hate, hate, HATE winter. I hate snow, I hate ice, I hate any temperature below 45 degrees. I live in Chicago, and if you are from or live near this part of the country, you know that winters are cold, windy, and LONG. In fact, it’s May 8th as I type this and the temperature was only about 50 degrees today. I get super depressed in February/March and as soon as it starts to get warm, there is a noticable change in my personality. My husband and I would one day like to move to Miami (or someplace else equally beautiful and warm) and every winter I just think of the fact that one day, I won’t have to deal with this crap anymore.
6. I got my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology, and currently I work as a Personal Banker at a large financial institution. Not exactly my dream job, or anything even remotely close to what I had planned on doing with my life, but for now it simply pays the bills (and pays them pretty well, too, actually). Eventually I’d like to go back to school and get my master’s in Social Work, but for now it’s just not economically feasible.
Well now you all know a little bit more about me! I’ll go ahead and tag a few people for this meme, but if you don’t feel like playing, no hard feelings… I’ll get over it.
