Things I Believe In

Okay, let's just get this straight. I'm voting for Obama.

I'm often overly passionate and I'm constantly fighting a desire to be right.

Most mornings, I'm not sure where I am as I'm waking up.

Sometimes I sit around and cook tofu.

I like red wine, not white.

I don't like Nicholas Sparks. Or Jane Austen.

I believe in stilettos heels, not wedges. Booties are the worst thing to happen in the history of fashion.

I've been hearing a lot about ridding your body of toxins. I've heard that processed sugars are a toxin. But I can't bring myself to believe it. Sugar is good for the soul.

I hate yogurt. And cottage cheese.

Here are the things I refuse to incorporate into my life: Minivans. Scrapbooks. Kitchen scissors.

Ordering thai food and watching French films makes me feel glamorous.

I'm horrible with time. I can never find my watch and I can never get anywhere on time. I firmly believe that there will always be another train, another flight, and another chance. And if not, there's always another path.

Stepping off a train in a foreign city is my favorite feeling.

Everything means more if it's written in a letter.

If a mosquito is within a 1-mile radius, she will definitely choose me.

Snowflakes make me giggle.

I leave a part of myself in every country I visit. I'm not sure if this is a good or a bad thing.

Saying mean things about my ex-boyfriends doesn't make me feel better.

I always cringe when someone misspells, mispronounces, or misuses a word.

Orange blossoms and rain are my favorite smells.

When I'm ninety-five years old, I want people to say, "She's a character."

My mom's cooking will always be better than that of anyone else.

I don't say "see you later" when I mean "goodbye".

Lightning storms scare me.

My favorite part of girls' night outs is stumbling home at 3 am and deciding that we need to run across the street and get pastries.

I only drink coffee when I can convince myself that I'm stressed out enough to need it. Otherwise, it's herbal tea, iced, six packets of sugar.

If I could find a way to make money off of recognizing peoples' voices, I'd be a millionaire.

Trying to find a new church all by myself is terrifying.

The brighter the colors, the better.

Grumpy old men make my day, especially if I can manage to make theirs.

Watching two dancers glide across a room makes me believe that love has the power to conquer all the ugliness in this world.

If I could live at the library, I would. Do librarians live at libraries?

My favorite documentaries are the one that make me cry and convince me that it's my job to make the world a better place.

I am the girl who is always staring out the window, wishing she could play in the grass, daydreaming about what the rest of the day might bring.

Are you voting in AZ?

and are mosquitoes always a she?

You could own your own library, and then build an apartment on top of it for yourself. ;p

No. I'm voting in California, because I'm not an Arizona resident.

Only female mosquitos are able to drink blood, because they need it to develop eggs. :) Totally random thing that I probably didn't really need to know.

Makes sense. I never knew that though! See, you learn something new everyday.
