Why Yes I Do Have Brothers.

Most of you who follow my blog probably could guess I am a bit of a girly girl. A dress wearing, tea sipping, sidewalk skipping girly girl. This in itself has to be some sort of miracle, because for the major portion of my life I was the only girl, I mean there was my mom, but she was a die-hard tomboy, so much so she was freaked over the idea of having a daughter (but that all worked out and now I am her favorite teehee). However the other day I couldn’t help but notice there are some definite attributes that are in direct relationship to having had brothers be my best friends for the first 8 years of my life, 8 years later I finally got that sister I wanted, translations brothers were demoted from favorite siblings haha. However those boys sure do rub off on ya. So Michael and James I hold you two fully responsible for these guy like qualities.

1. My taste in movies.

2. My love of a great explosion. I mean that is the only reason to watch Mythbusters right? Yes exactly, to see things blown to kingdom come.

3. My secret desire to be as wilderness savvy as Bear Grylls.

I mean who wouldn’t want to be this guy?

4. I should be a trucker, considering how much I eat, and the colorful verbage I use 😉

No lie I actually really wanted to be a trucker when I was 4.

5.The fact that I still think burping the loudest is some sort of accomplishment

“Did you hear that?”

6. I am way more comfortable in a group of guys than a group of girls.

7. I have no problem being myself. If you don’t like me that’s just fine.

Needless to say I love you guys, even though you are a colossal pain in the neck 😉

Why I Will Never Be Considered “Cool”

So let’s all be honest we have all tried extremely hard to be cool at one point in time, heck some of us are still trying to be “cool”. I think I must have been around 8 or so when I really started mimicking my peers in order to fit in, well sense that was when Britney Spears and belly shirts were the height of fashion, you can imagine that mom snapped me out of that one real fast haha. After that little incident, my mom was really pushing for me to be my own person. And I must say it worked, so thanks mom thanks for making me uncool. It’s just about the best thing that ever happened to me. So I thought I might list a few of my uncool qualities.

1. I am beyond old fashioned! Hey I may only be 20…but I am close to 80 years old in my views on life.

If my appearance matched my personality 😉

2. I find sports a form of public humiliation and torture. Growing up in a household of Texas boys this made me incredibly uncool.

I was always on the recieving end of any sports “accident”. Let’s just say having your arm pulled out of socket twice is a good limit. Thanks Michael and James!

3. My idea of current music is Johnny Cash.

“you kids turn that racket down I can’t stand that noise you call music!!!”

4. My idea of a party is… a tea party!

“I do declare Gertrude this is one of the most outrageous get togethers I have ever experienced”

5. I read and not because I have to.

“Is this what heaven looks like?”

6. I’m always a friend never a girlfriend.

Being a friend to the guys was not only “uncool” it made a lot of girls hate me!

7. I dance like Bill Cosby! Even when there is no music.

These are my mad dance skills. You jelly?

So all in all learn to embrace your own inner dork! You will be a much happier you.

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
