img_4193

Hello all! My posts have been few and far between 😦 I plan to change that. I miss writing! So very much. S0 this isn’t a creative writing piece. But it’s something I’ve seen all over people’s blogs recently and thought it would be fun! So without further ado, here are 50 RANDOM facts about Miss Blue 🙂

  1. I am a perfectionist…possibly borderline OCD. I like things clean, neat tidy, organized. The type of person who gets anxiety going to bed at night if there is a mess that hasn’t been cleaned up!
  2. I used to want to be an actress. But I have always been REALLY shy. So then I decided I wanted to be a movie director, be BEHIND the camera. But alas, the cards have not lined up that way 😛
  3. I used to be a huge tom boy when I was young. I wore boys clothes. Had a mushroom cut. Played with samurai swords, marbles, POGS, Pokemon Cards, pretended my bike was a motorcyle, and for YEARS I played Tom & Huck which consisted of dressing in rags for the “orphan” appeal, and running in the woods barefoot with my cousins. I was always Tom and my cousin Samara was Huck.
  4. I used to write short fictional stories, A LOT. I have hundreds and hundreds of unfinished stories that I just never got around to finishing. Ranging from romance, to sci-fi to fantasy. A lot of my inspiration came from very vivid dreams, old Disney movies like Alice in Wonderland, and computer games I played like Star Craft.
  5. I’m big into video games. Was at a young age and still am! I had the old school Nintendo. Then upgraded to N64 (Mario Kart & Zelda obsession). Then X BOX (had a huge Halo obsession). And now I have a PS3. I’m currently into Skyrim, The Last of Us, Dead Space and Fallout 3. I also played a ton of computer games that ranged from Age of Empires, to Sims to Rollercoaster Tycoon.
  6. I used to make YouTube videos. But I am currently retired haha. I may get back into one day when I have substantial content to make them with.
  7. I have never broken a single bone in my body.
  8. I’m addicted to movies. I watch way too many. It’s how I de-stress, relax, kill time, get things off my mind, feed my imagination, and escape reality.
  9. My “spirit animal” apparently is a deer lol.
  10. I have a slight obsession with socks. A brand new pair of socks is exciting for me. I especially love really tall socks. Knee length or higher.
  11. I have a slight obsession with collections. When I was young I collected things like rocks, marbles, pogs, gum wrappers, Kinder surprise toys, notebooks, gel pens, Beanie Babies, and lots more. Nowadays I collect things like sea glass, coffee mugs and movies.
  12. I’m abnormally cold all the time. I like space heaters, electric blankets, big cozy sweaters, big cozy socks, scarves and hot drinks. I was meant to live in a hot climate.
  13. I like to think my life is very ironic. I was born in the East Coast. Where seafood is prominent. Yet I’m allergic to all shellfish. I love animals, but I’m allergic to most of them. I love the outdoors and I’m allergic to trees, pollen and grass. I LOVE food but I’m allergic to all nuts and certain seeds, fruits and veggies. I love to travel but my allergies make traveling more difficult. So ironic? Yes.
  14. I scare really, REALLY easily. But I still love watching scary movies and the adrenaline rush I get from them.
  15. I used to collect rodents. I once had 3 hamsters, and 18 mice!
  16. I used to have the diet of an obese person when I was a teenager. If it wasn’t for my extremely high metabolism as a teenager my nutritionist said I would be overweight. I ate so bad that I messed up my digestive system to the point of needing to go on an extreme diet and take vitamins and minerals in liquid form several times daily since I was so deficient in my vitamin intake. Yet somehow I was barely over 100 pounds.
  17. My nicknames in high school consisted of Sterns, Sternzy, Sternsky, Katster, Kate, Tinkerbell and Sternzo.
  18. I love TEA! I refuse to drink coffee except for the occasional specialty drink like flavoured lattes.
  19. I have chronic back disorder, the cause I am unsure of. But I do have flat feet which I think contribute to my back pain. And my back pain now contributes to my neck pain. So basically I’m just a mess. And this also is ironic because I am a graphic designer, which may be the worst job for someone with back and neck pain haha.
  20. During my early teens I used to have an obsession with celebrities. When I had a crush on one I had to watch every single movie they ever acted in, plaster posters of them all over my room, watch every interview they ever did, and I used to make fan fictional stories based on them. Yup real cool of me 😋
  21. I have the utmost appreciation for all art forms. Film, photography, painting, designing, dance, music and tons more. Any form of creativity no matter how unique. I admire all of it.
  22. I’m a country girl. My paradise is a cottage style home with a wood stove, acres of land with wood trails nearby, a vegetable garden and the sound of the ocean from my porch.
  23. My favourite book of all time is The Hobbit. And my favourite movie trilogy of all time is Lord of the Rings.
  24. I have kept a diary every year since I was very young, possibly 8 or 9 yrs old.
  25. Give me a really good, long foot rub and I will do just about anything haha.
  26. My favourite thing in the world to do during the summer (besides the beach) is amusement parks. I LOVE roller coasters.
  27. My idea of the perfect summer day is an all day beach day which consists of arriving at the beach at 8am, being there all day with packed lunch and dinner, stay until about 8pm and then have a bonfire with beer, smores and someone with a guitar. 👌🏻

Enter Year 2015

newyear

Resolutions, resolutions, resolutions.

I honestly have never made any. Here and there I have said, “oh I will do such and such this year, or I will change this, I will reach this goal…”etc etc. But truly setting in motion things that mean something to me. Things that are embedded in my bones. Things I want to see happening in my life for good. I have never really thought about it…

So here I am, pondering away at what means most to me in life. I am very different from my 19 year old self. I’m not single, broke, confused, uncertain, undecided, or floating along a path full of mediocre happenings, changing direction at every moment. My 26 year old self has new passions, and new desires in life. I will be 30 in 4 years! Yes, I am still young, but I feel like I am running out of time for some reason. 2015 seemed unreachable at one point. But now its here, and I feel a sudden urge for doing life right!

If I were to list resolutions, in order of importance, in real written words. What would they be…I believe, something like this:

1. Destroying the Debt

My young and naive self never fully understood the meaning. Credit cards were just an easy way of getting what I wanted when money wasn’t right at my fingertips. A way of not having to spend the “real” dollar until “later”. A student loan was, besides pay my tuition, a nice easy way to comfortably buy all my art supplies to my heart’s content, eat out at the college cafe everyday, live off of Tim Horton’s coffee and bagels during my frequent “all-nighter” projects. Fast forward 5 years later, married, no job, with credit cards and my student loan payments about to begin. It really hits you. Now its like a big elephant in the room, everyday. Knowing my income really isn’t my money, because I owe so much of it. Debt is brutal and this is the year to really make a dent in it. My Mister and I are making it our number one new years resolution.

2. Consistency

One of my biggest flaws. Staying consistent with things. I tend to start things and not finish them. Whether it be a new fitness routine, a healthier way of eating, a hobby, a book, a painting, a story, a personal project, tithing at church, doing my devotions, keeping up with my BLOG for crying out loud. I start them and stay on track for a while, but then the interest dwindles, or I get distracted with life, I lose motivation. It is SUCH a ridiculous bad habit that I very much intend to change this year. Staying consistent through each and every task and seeing things through to completion.

3. Travel

I have so much wanderlust in my soul. An immense desire to travel to new places. Sadly I haven’t been many places. I know I may only be able to travel short distances this year because of Goal #1 but, even to get outside my own province, or city for that matter is worth it! Weekend getaways. Oceans, lakes, forests, mountains, anything new and different. This year I want to have lots of little trips. And then the time will come for the big ones!

4. Being Content, no matter the Circumstance

This is a big one too. I find I have always struggled with this. Being content seems to be an impossible feat! The world we live in is one giant candy shop where you can never seem to get enough of the good stuff. Advertisements, social media, television, you name it. Everywhere you go someone is trying to sell you something. Trying to tell you you aren’t good enough, that you don’t have enough stuff, you need more, you need this, you need that. How is one supposed to be happy with what they have when everything is being shoved before your eyes on a silver platter every day? I am very thankful for what I have, and the people I have in my life, and I have absolutely NO reason to need more. Even if I never get to travel like in Goal #3, I need to be content in the home and province and country God placed me. Even if I don’t ever get my “dream home”, or write a novel, or make more money etc. I need to be content. The absolute worst thing to be doing is wishing for more stuff and a better life. I am very blessed. So this year I strive to be CONTENT with my wonderful life.

So there it is, some things to motivate me this year and keep me busy! It is a year of change I think. And true accomplishments. Even though these might be small, they are meaningful. Happy new year everyone! I wish you all well on your resolutions and new year endeavors!
