friday's confession: I'm a goober

Yes, you heard it here first: I'm a goober.

No, really, I am.

Goober, goofball, joker, whatever you want to call it, that's what I am.

And I'm owning that, because it's one of the things that makes me me. Authentically me.

We set up a post challenge over at Spring this week: What makes you authentically you? so here's my list including the good, the bad, and the ugly:

  • I'm a goober (see above)
  • I make myself laugh on a daily basis. Seriously, I crack myself up all the time.
  • I would like to live in France someday.
  • Or just inside an Anthropologie store.
  • I am a crazy super fan-girl of The Avett Brothers.
  • Giraffes make me swoon. Especially baby ones.
  • I want to get married in a barn and dance all night at my wedding.
  • I use inappropriate humor to diffuse awkward social situations.
  • I am really loud.
  • I like karaoke a LOT despite being a horrible singer.
  • Champagne at breakfast is one of life's greatest pleasures.
  • I fight waking up every single day, but am slowly discovering that I actually am a morning person.
  • I have a scary ability to simply ignore mess and clutter and just live my life around it.
  • Words of affirmation and quality time are my primary love languages.
  • I talk to my dog all day long when I'm alone with her.
  • I have an amazing vision for my life that I'm slowly working towards.
  • I am insecure.
  • I fake confidence until I feel it.
  • I love shirtdresses and would wear one every day if I had enough of them.
  • Musicals make me crazy. Even bad ones, like Lestat, the Musical.
  • I sing a LOT.
  • I laugh a lot.
  • I smile all the time and don't realize it.
  • People have told me that I'm the most cheerful person they know.
  • Some people don't get me and think I'm crazy.
  • I cry a lot too.
  • I love to cook.
  • I don't love to clean. In fact, I sort of loathe it.
  • I am an artist.
  • I'm finding my style as an artist.
  • I still have a whole lot to learn.
  • I want to make a lot of money in my life so I can spend it all traveling and eating amazing food.
  • Watching people play pac-man makes me anxious.
  • I'm a worrier.
  • When I'm stressed out or nervous about something, I get insomnia.
  • At my last day job, I had insomnia for months.
  • I almost went to business school for an MBA.
  • I'm so glad I didn't go to business school.
  • I love children and will have one of my own someday.
  • I am fiercely loyal to the people I love.
  • I have a tendency to be co-dependent and take care of everyone around me first.
  • I love taking naps. If I was President, I'd mandate daily siestas.
  • I think our time here is too short to live lives that don't make us feel sparkly inside.
  • I want to bring joy into people's lives.
  • I think everyone in this world is beautiful. Including you.
