five things

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)

\\ Five Places I'd Love To Travel To \\





::Cayman Islands

Hell yes to The Great Gatsby and Tommy Boy!

It would be awesome to be a personal trainer! Also, I got myself a fancy camera... I have NO idea how to use it. I need to break it out of its bag and snap some photos.

Venus Trapped In Mars said...

Such a cute post!! I have absolutely no clue how to work my fancy camera. Teach me your ways! Then maybe we can go to Europe together and get paid to take pics?!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

JumpingJE said...

Haha thanks for tagging me!! This will be a great post for when I'm in Canada next week... although I'm going to have to come up with a good list (fake) for things I read .... blogs count, right!?

Lauren said...

I love Good Will Hunting. It and Wedding Crashers are both movies I have to watch every time they come on.

Tami said...

I think you would rock being a personal trainer so hard. And now I must pick up the happiness project next time I see it!

Karoline said...

Wedding Crashers is one of my favorites too!! And I also reallllyyyy want to travel to Greece some day. So so so bad!

Kailagh said...

When I first got my big girl camera I was in love :) It is so much fun. Europe is amazing. I literally suggest it to everyone that goes. I have only been to Paris and London (gosh I say only like its a bad thing) but my point is that is wonderful. One more thing, Good Will Hunting, is by far one of the greatest movies of all time.

Hey, I had Mr. Douchelords my entire life until I met my husband, so I'm going to milk it for all it's worth. ;)

I need to take some photography classes or buy the photography for dummies book. Or, I have a nice camera for no freaking reason.

Mulan and The Lion King totally count.

Demetria Mera said...

Love the great Gatsby.. I'm short of Scott Fitzgerald fans :)

Chandler said...

This is such a fun idea for a post!
Also I love Wedding Crashers!! I watch it every time it comes on!! Definitely a favorite! And I love Great Gatsby (the book), I still need to see the movie--I've seen the original.
Lion King is for sure a classic!! And my favorite movie of all time :)

Chandler said...

ps- Cayman Islands is a great vacay spot, so beautiful!

Anna Sinclair said...

Africa and Greece are on my list also. So when do we start planning!!? :)

This was a fun post!

Alissa said...

The Year of Fog ...I definitely own that book. I'll have to re-read it. I just read The Great Gatsby for the first time a couple months ago ...I've yet to see the movie!

I'm stealing this, FYI :)
