Let’s get one thing straight – I am not a witch, a psychic, a wiccan, a palm reader, or any other stereotypical person that people may associate with tarot card reading.
I am merely a woman, who during my first summer separated from my husband, needed to occupy my time in order to prevent myself from seriously losing my shit. During that first dreadful summer, I decided that in order to keep my mind and my self busy, I would sign up for some online courses. I was too fucked up to leave my house in order to actually take any in-person courses (that would require showering and getting dressed, neither of which I was able to do on a regular basis yet), and besides, turns out that there are some super cool courses that you can take online that I’m pretty sure you will not find in a brick and mortar establishment.
I will totally admit, that until very recently, I had no idea what a Liebster Award was. That’s probably because I have only been blogging for, what, a whole 5 months? Needless to say, I was shocked and honored to be nominated for 3 Liebster Awards by some awesome bloggers!
For those, like me, who are unfamiliar with the Liebster Award, it is an internet award given to bloggers by other bloggers. It’s main objective is to recognize newbies to the blogosphere by bringing attention to blogs who have 200 or less followers and who are just starting out.
Turns out, the word Liebster, which is German in origin, has several meanings including sweet, kind, nice, and ironically, boyfriend. So it feels fitting.
When I’m not busy fighting with men online or getting Catfished, I like to spend my time releasing my frustrations why getting a workout (I’m sure as hell not releasing my frustrations any other way, wink wink). My favorite way to de-stress is by practicing yoga. I’m a bit of a gym-a-phobe, in that I literally hate anything having to do with the gym. I want to want to be active and healthy, but I have a difficult time sticking to something, especially if I absolutely hate it. I’ve tried it all, from just hitting the gym (with and without a trainer), to zumba, to spinning, and everything in between. Finally, I found my happy place in the yoga studio. It’s been over two years since I began faithfully attending yoga classes 3-4 times a week and I can honestly say that I’ve never felt better, both physically and mentally. My classes kick my ass and are very challenging but there is always a next level to get to and I am always improving and mastering postures that I was unable to do before. That, in and of itself, is what keeps my interest.
If you’re anything like me, nothing bothers you more than a sloppy-looking, chipped manicure. Because you never know when you might meet a hot guy or get asked out on a last minute date, it’s super important to be able to master the art of the at-home manicure since you won’t always have time for a nail salon pit stop! Trust me when I tell you that men will notice if you’ve got jacked up nails (my ex used to tell me that he didn’t remember what I wore on our first date, but he remembered that he really liked my brown nail polish)!
I love nail polish! The first time my cleaning lady came to my house she told me that she had never before seen anyone with as big of a nail polish collection as me.
It’s true. I have a bit of an obsession with nail polish; an addiction if you will.
While many girls enjoy treating themselves to a relaxing mani / pedi at the nail salon, the thought of going to one of those places totally skeeves me out. All I can think about is how many dirty feet touched the water basin, how many were scrubbed by the loofah bar, and how many nails were filed with the nail file, among other things.
I just can’t.
