Things That Say a Lot

"Things that say a lot about people:
The way in which they treat a waiter/waitress
How they feel about the weather
Whether they dog ear pages or highlight in books
And hands in general
Their preferred creative outlet
How much they dread/enjoy talking on the phone
Whether or not they drink coffee
If they ever forget to eat
How honest they are with themselves (and others)
If they correct your grammar
And whether or not they get nervous before haircuts."
(Quote and idea were taken from Carlotta's blog)

I. My family goes out to eat almost every weekend. It's bad, I know. But I've always thought waiting at a restaurant would be difficult. You have to deal with so many people, some who may not be so fun to deal with. So I definitely always treat a waiter the way I'd like to be treated, giving a little smile when they fill up my drink and saying thank you as they leave the check. Don't ignore them, people!

II. I'm a sucker for sunny days. Rainy/cloudy days truly do affect my mood. I tend to feel sad and even a little hopeless if the rain keeps on.

III. I only highlight and underline in my Bible. It's the only book I feel okay doing that with considering I know I'll be going back to read it numerous times. I never dog ear or highlight in pleasure books. I have a touch of OCD and feel as though I'd distract myself if I went back to reread.

IV. I always keeps my fingernails trimmed because when they start to get hung on my sweaters, I automatically hate life. Right now I have acrylic nails, though, and I totally regret it. The nails are glued on my fingers and yet they are starting to come off. Not good, not good at all.

V. My hands are pretty normal, I think. But what's normal anyway? Haha. I have larger knuckles because it's always tough to get rings off but other than that, my hands are average.

VI. Photography is definitely my outlet. I am actually not all that creative so photography really makes me feel accomplished and satisfied. When I am bored, I usually want to go on a photoshoot. The feeling of capturing those images and coming home to view them on my computer is something that I wish everyone could experience. 

VII. Talking on the phone is in fact one of my least favorite things to do. It's like a chore for me. I can't believe I'm admitting this but when someone calls me, I get nervous and hope it just stops ringing, especially if someone who never calls me is calling me. That's the worst.

VIII. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate -- you name it and I drink it. Coffee is most definitely my favorite though. I actually get into phases where I'm addicted. What is that caffeine stuff doing to my body?! I love it. Starbucks, Micah's (our nearby coffeshop), Sheetz... I like them all.

IX. I don't know if it's necessarily that I forget to eat or that I'm just too lazy to make myself meals. We usually don't have much food in our house and I tend to get tired of making sandwiches everyday. That's not to say I dislike eating, though. I love eating. I wish I could eat whatever I wanted without gaining weight. That would be awesome.

X. I'm incredibly honest with myself. My mind literally never stops running so most often, I'm thinking of things I did wrong and how I can make up for it. I'm also pretty honest with others and don't mind sharing what's on my heart but my trustworthiness isn't going to take advantage of something I've been told to keep secret, either.

XI. I correct grammar all the time but mostly it's just for my mom. Haha. I would feel bad correcting my friends or anyone else. I don't think that's appropriate although it does eat me alive. The funny thing is, I realize I make grammar mistakes too. What? I make mistakes?

XII. There's nothing I love more than a haircut. Do whatever the heck you want, Haircut Lady. I love trying to new things and leaving the salon feeling like a new person. You have to admit whipping your freshly cut hair back and forth is fun.
