I'm the kinda girl who...

February 19, 2014
I'm joining in on this link up fun!


I'm the kinda girl who...

*will be friends forever with someone if they put the effort in/don't turn into psycho cupcakes.
*craves adventure and who loves to try new things!
*is socially awkward, but people always tell me they don't see it.  Trust me, it's there!
*is a dreamer and idealist.
*has very high expectations from others, but I hold myself to the same high expectations.
*is a freak magnet.  If I had a dollar for every time I heard, "People just say the weirdest things to you," then I'd be rich.
*sometimes needs a little push, but then will work hard achieving those goals.
* procrastinates terribly and frequently.
* will never stop laughing at a joke that I find funny...even years later.
* gets irritated when people treat others horribly in the name of religion.  (Gays, those who practice other religions, etc.)
* enjoys time alone, but likes to go out once in awhile, too.
* hates exercising.  I really wish I didn't and got that so-called rush that everyone speaks of.  I just feel tired, sweaty, and gross, but try to do it anyway.
* used to believe in fashion before comfort, but now just wants to be comfy.  You may catch me in a pair of Ugg boots.  #dontjudge  #iliveinohio
* always has a gay best friend.  One of my closest gay pals couldn't figure out if a guy in question was gay or not.  He said, "Lisa, why don't you approach him and if you two hit it off right away, then I'll know the truth."
* believes in fairy tale romances.
* indulges in traveling, good meals, and beauty products.
* clicks more with female friends than with male ones (excluding the gays.)
* is mostly a good girl but has been called "mischievous" on more than one occasion.
* prefers texting over talking on the phone.
* starts laughing at inappropriate times, especially when I used to go to church or when I was in class.
* is jumpy.  People figure this out and then have lots and lots of fun scaring me.
* prefers hanging out with old friends rather than meeting new people.
* has to have a water bottle with me at all times or else I feel dehydrated/instantly thirsty.
* who is typically befriended by very popular people, even though I myself am not one of the "popular ones" that people just instantly like.  I'm pretty quiet in large groups, and it's easier to get to know me in smaller groups/one-on-one.
* uses a lot of gestures when I talk, especially if I'm passionate about something.
* used to think Type A people needed to chill out, but now is becoming more Type A as the years go on.
* loves to tell stories, especially with aforementioned gestures.  What can I say?  I have a flair for the dramatic from time to time.
*can listen to a song 100 times a day and not be sick of it. 
*is fascinated by other cultures.

What kind of girl (or guy) are you?

  1. I'm the same way with songs- guilty of sometimes playing one on repeat if I'm singing along in the car. And definitely prefer texting over talking on the phone!

    1. There are only a few people I don't mind talking on the phone with! Sometimes I get nervous for things to say if someone who I don't know that well calls me, lol.

  2. Oh my, this is a great post! I attract weirdos as well, hate exercising, procrastinate like nobody's business, and am totally socially awkward. It just means we are special!

  3. I'm definitely a Type A person and people constantly tell me that the more excited I get about a story I'm telling, the louder I talk and the more I flail my arms lol. I cant help it, I get excited hearing my own stories!!

    1. The only form of exercising I really like is to take a long walk. It helps me to de-stress, but there aren't that many places to really go on long walks around me. There is a bike trail, but I've encountered snakes, stray cats following me, all sorts of bugs, a freaky groundhog, and a weird man.

  5. I gesticulate a lot and definitely get louder the more passionate I am about something! I like to look nice, but discomfort is out the window now. I have songs that I'm into and play over and over. I'm quieter until I get to know people and then you can't shut me up! (Bullied at high school so bit over-cautious with new friends). I love dancing, but hate exercising, although I do it too. I'm definitely a dreamer.....and a giggler, even now I'm a mum! I love travelling too.

    1. Yes, I never understood the trend until I tried on one in a shoe store to kill some time while I was waiting for a friend. Once I tried them on, I knew that I had to own a pair (or two!)

  8. I'm also a freak magnet. How many times have I had a complete stranger approach me to talk about their colostomy bag? It's more than you'd think...

    1. HAHA!! That is pretty funny. I only got asked that once by this girl who tried to sleep with my ex-boyfriend like 2 days after we broke up. He turned her down, so then I guess she felt the need to ask me?!? I'm still shuddering in horror at the thought!

    1. I get nervous when I first meet people and since I'm too busy being awkward, I don't listen to people fully when they introduce themselves, which causes me to not remember people's names and only makes it more awkward for me later. Haha!!
