Like most other twenty something ladies on the planet, I am extremely hard on myself. When I saw my blog BFF turned real life BFF Juliette was co-hosting a linkup where you kind of bragged about yourself, I decided I would share some things that I actually do enjoy about little old me.
Also, I cut my hairs. Hello.
One of my besties Steve was like… LET’S TAKE A NEW HEADSHOT FOR YOUR BLOG. God, I love him.
I love that I have a heart for God.
I grew up in a Catholic family where we went to church and were told to be nice to people. I wasn’t taught too much about religion (which is fine, I mean my parents rock!), but throughout the years I have developed a true love for Christ. Which, in my opinion, is awesome.
I love that when I want something, I really go for it.
Sometimes, I half ass things. I h a t e admitting that, but it is really true. For example, I wrote a paper earlier this week for my teaching seminar that was really, really rough. Like I wrote it at 3am while reading blogs at the same time. But whatever #seniorities.
However, if there is something I really want to accomplish, I will do just that! OK- now I’m going to brag for one second: I’m officially down 10 pounds! WOO! Some people have noticed, which makes me feel awesome, and some people haven’t but I have to remember I’m doing this for me! That means I can cross something off my 22 by 22 list. I’ve updated it so you should check it out 😉 Last night, my ladies and I went out and the bartender was seriously AMAZING, so I decided to cross another item off my list and gave her a 100% tip 😉 Anywhoodles, sorry for the long explanation!
I love that I’m a good friend.
If you’re sad, I’ll be sad for you. However, if you’re happy, I’ll be ecstatic for you. I value my friendships and am loyal til the end!
I love that I can manage my own health.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… therapy is totally awesome! I’m not ashamed of it and I’m proud that I can confidently manage my mental health.
I love that I can talk to anyone.
Like, literally I can talk to a brick wall. It’s extremely convenient during sorority events, job fairs, teaching… okay a lot of times 😉 I just like to talk.
I think that’s it. But before you go, let me introduce you to someone who I love!
As I always do when someone buys adspace with me, I clicked over to Becca’s site and was instantly mad I hadn’t found her blog sooner! She’s an awesome blogger, and has turned into an awesome friend! Do you love Netflix? (read- are you human?) Becca shares some things you must watch! Becca also writes from the heart and shares that she can’t walk in heels. One of my favorite posts by Becca is 10 Ways to Love a Blogger. She’s SO ON POINT everyone go read it.
Becca also loves her Whitney English planner… okay I just love her.
I'm Rachael, and welcome to my blog! Here you'll find stories about life abroad, living in China, blogging tips + tricks, and what I'm reading. I'm fueled by hot tea, bright lipstick, and red wine. Stay a while--I'm so glad you're here.
