Note: my silly pup behind me. She loves playing in the snow with her sister, who is not pictured because my head is, and, despite the fact that she appears to be floating, actually does have paws.
Generally, I'm a happy gal. Though I consider myself Type A, mostly because of my love for list making, I'd say I'm pretty laid back and can roll with the punches. However, there are a few things that really chap my arse. So, if you really knew me, you'd know:
// I loath hypocrisy. Practice what you preach, friends. Or get off the soap box. And please call me out if I am ever in violation.
// I hate when people tell me to calm down, especially if I'm upset about something. I take your telling me to "calm down" as a sign that you don't want to listen to me, don't care about how I'm feeling or are uncomfortable with my "ugly" emotions. I don't get mad or fired up about things too often, but when I do, I just need to get it off my chest, and I just would like to have my feelings validated by your listening. Please and thank you.
// I can't stand the sound of people chewing with their mouth open or chomping their gum.
// I dislike when people say they will do something and they don't. Including myself.
// I hate being late. It makes me anxious. All sorts of rapid heartbeat, sweaty, twitchy, talk-to-myself anxious.
Tell me, what erks you?
