Kasey, over at Life and Love with Mr. Wonderful (too cute makes you want to vomit a little right?) tagged me in her 5 things Post and I figured this would be a great way for everyone to get to know me a little bit better. It's funny how you can blog multiple days a week and yet the blog world does not know that much about you.
\\ Five Things I Have A Passion For \\
::Fitness - after being active in athletics all through high school and college, I just can't seem to quit it. I even debate about getting certified to become a personal trainer. We shall see.
::My family and friends - but let's be honest, what would we do without our support systems? I know I have a lot of good people in my life, that I probably take for granted, but I am quite fond of them and appreciate all they do for me.
::Music - can't sing or play any instruments, but I think that is part of the reason I love music so much. I am so impressed and envious of those that can. Plus, the wonderful thing about music is there is always a song for anything you're going through in life. Happy, sad, relationships, you name it, there is a song to help you through.
::Food - I mean I know we'd die without it, but I really love a fantastic well thought out and prepare meal.
::Photography - Ever since I got my big girl camera I can't stop taking photos. Am I a pro? No sir. Do I think I am getting a little better? Yeah! I am definitely learning, but have a long way to go!
\\ Five Things I'd Like To Do Before I Die \\
::Travel to Europe - Sadly, I haven't had the opportunity yet. I would love to just take at least month and explore.
::Find a job or career I am passionate about - Do I like my job now? Sure, but do I truly love it. Nope.
::Own my own home - Renting sucks.
::Volunteer for a cause I support - And not just a few hours one day, but really become involved.
::Look back at my life and be content - To be happy and proud with all I have done and not compare my life to anyone else's.
\\ Five Books and/or Magazines I've Read Lately \\
::Currently reading The Year of Fog - Michelle Richmond. Easy read and so far enjoyable, but a little sad. It is about a child that disappears and the step mom's hunt to find her.
::The Happiness Project - Gretchen Rubin. Do yourself a favor and buy this book.
::GQ - Yes, it's a magazine for me. Yes, I have my own subscription. I love men's fashion (odd I know) and they have great articles about food, cities, celebrities, and more.
::The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald. So technically, it has been a little while since I last read this, but it is one of my favorite books and I just saw the movie last night finally!!! Great stuff.
::Women's Health - Great recipes, great work outs, and fresh ideas for fitness clothes and gadgets. Sign me up.
\\ Five Favorite Movies \\
::Good Will Hunting - Fantastic. Must see, over and over and over.
::Wedding Crashers - You shut your mouth when you're talking to me.
::Almost Famous - Classic. This scene, I mean does it get any better?
::Can all the Disney classics be included - Also, I include Mulan and The Lion King in the list of classics, so sue me.
::Tommy Boy - Classic Chris Farley (RIP)
