Yesterday was my birthday which signals the end of summer and beginning of fall! Naturally, I had to go to Starbucks this morning and get my birthday drink—first pumpkin spice latte of the season! The beginning of the school year is always crazy which explains my lack of posting in September. After a crazy day at work I just need to unplug at home. I’ve been trying to get 10,000 steps a day on my Fitbit so that keeps me active.
This weekend I am heading out to go camping! It’s the first of two camping trips I have planned with friends for this fall. I normally only go for one night, but this is set up for two nights. Roughing it for 48 hours? We’ll see how that goes over!
Libby was the first person in my feed to “describe yourself in three characters” on her Instagram. I thought long and hard and picked my three! I posted this pic on Instagram but thought I’d elaborate here in my fun Friday post.
Liz Lemon is my spirit animal. Hands down. I am not #foreveralone but aside from her love life aspect I see myself in her a lot—the frantic personality, sarcastic sense of humor, and the struggle to “have it all.” Peyton was my high school idol. Her taste in music and fashion were impossibly cool and my pinnacle aspiration. Her attempt to put on a brave face and cover her insecurities really spoke to me in high school and that part of me is still inside (even though I’ve made strides in being more confident and assertive). I was stumped on my third personality representation and fought hard when Doug suggested Lorelai for me. Yes, she’s immature and indecisive at times (let’s face it, so am I) but she’s also stubborn and driven and made her small-business dream a reality. Honorable mention goes to the sarcastic guy with the boring job, Chandler Bing, who got edged out by Lorelai (because he is kind of redundant when Liz Lemon was my #1).
Have you picked your three characters that represent you yet?
One thought on “Happy Autumn! ”
A) I love your use of Autumn instead of “Fall”. If there’s an option to use a two-syllable word, I’ll take it. I always try to use Autumn.
B) I can’t believe I was the first one of these you’d seen! I’d been ignoring it for, like, 4 days and then I caved. :D
