Have you read Allie's blog post from today yet? I'm stealing it. She wrote all about her quirks and I was like, "Hey, thanks for the idea!" Because sometimes you can't come up with your own ideas. And actually, that's been me a lot lately, but let's just gloss over that fact and I'll go ahead and write down some of my weird quirks.
+ If I'm sitting on a couch, I HATE sitting on the part where two cushions come together. I don't want to feel that crack near my crack.
+ If I feel like there's a hair from my head that has gone rogue and fallen down my shirt, I MUST FIND IT. I don't care where we are, I will stick my hand up the back of my shirt and search for that hair. At work, at the grocery store, at a bar... I NEED to find that hair.
+ When I go shopping I never take the first item on the shelf. Whatever I need, I take the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th item because fewer people have touched it, and you know, germs.
+ When I wear my glasses I feel like my eyes don't open all the way and I feel half asleep. I hate it.
+ I HATE having hangnails, but instead of just ignoring them until they go away, I pick pick pick at them and make them a million times worse. It's the same with pimples. And chipped nail polish. And ugh life is so hard.
+ I have a very strict routine in the shower and I never deviate from it. Well, except I don't shave my legs every time I shower so sometimes I skip that, but IF I shave then I always do it at the same point in the shower: right leg is after the shampoo is in and my face is washed, and left leg is after the conditioner is in.
+ I would rather wear slacks than jeans. Or dress pants, whatever you want to call them.
+ I have the best sponsors this month. Keep reading and meet two more!
Meet Kala, from My Breezy Room
Where do I even begin with Kala? Probably the most important thing I should tell you is that she's a newlywed. A VERY newlywed. As in, she got married 13 days ago! But I also really want to tell you that she replied to one of my e-mails WHILE she was on her honeymoon (and while she was busy getting a butt blister). That's some serious blog dedication, if you ask me. Speaking of dedication, Kala is really dedicated to repurposing furniture. Like sanding, painting, CHALKBOARD painting, and et cetera and so on and so forth. She doesn't sugar coat anything, either. Her posts don't make me think "Oh, this will be a breeze!" (see what I did there?) and then when I try it myself I"m like "....this was not a breeze." Example: This post, where Kala tells how difficult chalkpainting can actually be. But then she goes and makes an old nightstand look beautiful, and I'm just over here like, um Kala, can you come over please and redecorate my apartment?? Probably not right now though because I know you have a lot going on, what with trying to find a place to live in the next week. So, you guys, go ahead and just stalk the ever living daylights out of Kala, get to know her, and you will have no regrets. Swear't.
I love AJ's blog because the way she writes makes it really easy to get a great mental image of what she's talking about! Plus, I mean, she has a picture of her with the most mischievous looking lemur (that's a lemur, right?) I've ever seen, and it doesn't get any better than that. writes about all kinds of things, and something I love is how real she is, especially when she writes about her love of art or her battle with anxiety. The anxiety post really moved me because I've struggled with that in the past and I've known people who have, as well. It really helps to know you're not alone in some struggles. Oh, and AJ uses GIFs in her posts, which obviously I love, and I'm certain you will too. If you want to read more, there's another post here that I suggest you read. Also, AJ and her husband George are expecting another baby in a few months!! I for one can't wait to see pictures when the little one arrives. Follow AJ and don't miss a thing!!
