*The credit for this post idea goes to Jenny. She's fabulous and brilliant, and I read everything she posts. You need to check her out.
If you know me in real life, then you know there aren't many topics I don't talk about. For the most part, I don't really believe in TMI, and supposedly taboo subjects like salary and weight don't bother me all that much either. I like to think I'm pretty honest on this blog, but there are a few things I don't think I've ever written about.
*No, I didn't take these pictures while I was driving! That would be really unsafe.
The drive to and from work takes either 25 or 40 minutes. In normal rush-hour traffic it takes 25 minutes. If there's been an accident or a cop is doing radar or construction is slowing everyone down or people just decide to take their sweet time, it takes 40. Never longer or shorter, and never between.
When I'm not listening to an audio book, I'm jamming out hard to country music.
Sometimes when I'm running early I stop at Panera and get a muffin.
All in all, it's really not a bad drive. The worst part of it is coming home. There's construction on my exit, and there's a huge backup at the light. If you don't time it right, you sit in a long line for 4 or 5 light changes, and it's really annoying.
My love for skim milk.
I. Love. Skim. Milk.
Yes, it tastes like water. That's why I love it. I refuse to drink 1% and 2% milk. I feel very strongly about this.
Don't even try to argue with me, or I'll be all like,
The only thing I really talk about is the fact that I wish I lived in a house instead of this apartment. But I think I may have finally made my peace with that. We just signed another year lease, so that's happening, and I just need to suck it up and stop complaining. I have a place to live after all. What more do I need?
I'm not really keen on taking you on a tour or showing you all our stuff, because I feel weird about internet weirdos seeing my house and maybe thinking, "Hey, they have a TV. Maybe I should steal it."
I don't know. People are weird. You have to be careful. And since I can't paint our walls and have limited space to decorate, I don't feel like there's anything particularly interesting to show you. Thus, I don't. Also, the lighting is terrible in here, so the pictures wouldn't turn out well anyway.
How often I make cookies
I make cookies a lot. A LOT. I love it. But what I am going to do? Blog every time I make cookies? No, because it would ruin any credibility I may have as a running guru. I LITERALLY have sugar cookies sitting on my counter that I made last night and a bowl of frosting in the fridge.
Actually... can we just forget I told you about the cookies? Kthanksbye.
A lot of people like blogging about TV shows (*cough* The Bachelor *cough*), music they're loving, celebrities, even stuff that's going around social media like the Duck Dynasty thing that went down with A&E a few months ago.
I don't keep up with many TV shows, and you've all seen my phone, so it doesn't make much sense for me to pretend I'm all "in the know" about pop culture references. So just in case you thought I was, let me tell you: I'm not. When I watch award shows, I probably only know 5% of the nominees.
Mostly, though, I don't blog about pop culture because I would rather just blog about myself.
What do you never blog about?
Anyone else out there love making cookies?
