Fill in the Blank Monday

Never too late, according to STORY OF A GIRL, so here ya go!

1. You should always take time to
enjoy the little things and read a good book.

2. ice cream make(s) the day better, always.

3. I can hardly wait for 2012 to start already. 2011 needs to be over, and I need to start my 30th year already. 30, flirty, and thriving here we come. Bring it.

4. Thursday is tap dance class day for me. Fun stuff.

5. Something totally dumb and ridiculous that I love is
CHEERS re-runs on Netflix instant view. I don't know why, but I watch at least one a night now.

6. If I could, I would travel around the world for a living.

7. I rather like blogging, and yoga.

Who are you?

Playing along with this blog:
(You should too!)

Please list your..............

Current location:
Decatur, GA
Day job: I'm a SUPPORT ASSOCIATE (aka there's nothing I say no to doing) at a group home for adults with disabilities. Right now I'm part cook, maid, journalist, recorder, nutritionist, life coach, and nurse. Ha.

Dream job: If I figured this out do you think I'd be working? LOL. I'd love to be a writer someday, and I'd love to work for any place that sends me to travel the world at their expense. I always said travel writing or blogging was what I'd be doing, but I'm sure I'd find something wrong with that too. I don't really think there's such a thing as a "dream job" and I really need to focus on the mindset that there are little positive things that happen at every job and just be content with where I am.

How you'd describe your style: Really comfortable. But not slob-ish. (At least I hope not!)

Favorite clothing company: Everything I own either comes from Kohl's (love them!) or Target

Favorite TV show: How I Met Your Mother

Favorite way to procrastinate: When I'm not dicking around online (facebook, twitter, message boards, blogs) I'm usually doodling in my sketchbook or playing with yarn/paint. Recently discovered acryllic (sp?) paint. Great stuff!

Something you're looking forward to this week: Melissa Ferrick at Eddie's Attic and going to Helen with the ladies at work. Also, learning a ton of new vocabulary and actually being able to carry on a conversation in ASL class. And contra dancing on Friday!!!

Something on your bucket list: Visiting the five continents I have still yet to set foot on. Living in (ok maybe just visiting!) London, Spain, France, and Germany.
