confessional | past + present

i love getting to know bloggers better. if i'm reading about these people practically on the daily…i want some secrets. some dets. the goods. i want to know that these bloggers have real issues…just like me. you're crazy. i'm crazy. let's be friends.

1 | i have two moles on my face and both of them grow individual hairs that i pluck. it's the most disgusting thing.

2 | i have a degree in psychology with a minor in education. had i actually started teaching i wouldn't be ashamed to share that with you. but i never did teach. i dabbled in large-scale event production and project management. both were much more suited to my personality. which brings me to…

3 | i lack patience with children…and people in general. i'm working on it.

4 | i curse. i have an absolutely fowl mouth. another thing i'm working on. cursing really isn't that attractive.

5 | nothing irritates me more than when i have to go to the bathroom mid-run. am i the only person this happens to?

6 | i try to wake up at 5:30 am most mornings. no, not to work out. to sit quietly and drink coffee all alone. two and a half hours later when my gal decides to wake up, i'm pretty excited to see her after all the "alone time."

7 | yesterday i actually considered spending nearly $200 on a pair of sandals. after a quick e-mail to my sister…she put me in my place.

8 | yesterday as i was changing my turtle she ripped the dirty diaper out from underneath her and the contents landed on her chest. i darn near puked all over her.

9 | in college my freshman year, my roommate decided to be a stripper. she called herself venus…and might still to this day. i'll have to check. (this has solid potential to be an entire post in itself.)

10 | tomorrow i'm doing something really really exciting that i've had to keep secret from most people. i'm kind of bursting, but i'll clue you guys in soon once i have more details.

spill it - do you have a confession(s) you want to share? this can include, but is not limited to //

  • mommy fails
  • waxing disasters
  • bar blunders
  • wedding day nightmares
  • or just a list of random facts…like how your roommate in college was a stripper.
(i also had a roommate in college that went #2 on the hood of someone's car. where did i find these people?)

i digress…i want to share your awesome stories with my awesome readers. shoot me an e-mail with your idea or your express interest in participating in this trial series and we'll get you scheduled!

  2. ohhh. well since you brought it up...
    my hub let me wax him. yeah. there. it was by far the best night of my entire life. mayyyyybe I should mention I'm not a trained waxer...waxist? i highly recommend it as marital
    therapy. for you, not him. because duh. and for the record, it was a disaster. wax strips stuck on his genatalia, hot wax dried in various crevices, etc etc. but seriously. best. night. ever.

  5. I use to get up early for time alone before everyone else in the house starts the day. I recently got over a cold and after reading your post I am excited about having that time back in the morning. :)

  6. Love this post! I have a degree in education and taught for less than a year and quit - it literally drained the life from me and I hated it...now I'm in business school, much better suited ;) OMG your roommates?!?! I think I'm going to need to hear more about these two because they sound crazy!!

  7. I pluck my chest hairs. No shame. No hair, no shame.

  8. I've totally got a very long belly button hair! It hurts to pluck it so I just shave that sucker right off. :)

  9. Random college roommate fact: You know how they tell you to not get back in your car when you are filling it up with gas because static electricity can cause a spark? My college roommate did that and set herself and the gas pump on fire...She had to have several skin grafts on her legs, but is ok now. The kicker...She was working toward her PhD in Chemistry...

  11. Such a fun post! I majored in psych as well in college. :)

  12. I always feel like I need to spit when I'm running. Like, what is that? Why?

    Additionally, I can't spit to save my life. It's been an embarrassing and ridiculous mess any time I've tried.

  13. I loved reading this! And would love to participate! I too have no patience for pretty much anyone and curse quite often. Working on those as well :)
    A couple of weeks ago Xavier decided to put his hands down his pants while at daycare. Problem? He had pooped! The kid hates messy things, but proceeded to pull it out and wipe it on his clothes, pillow, & blanket! YUCK! So glad I wasn't there for that! lol!

  14. I can relate with a lot of these! Minus the stripper. I personally hate when my food touches on a plate. And I normally eat one thing completely and then move on to the next. I'm OCD. Maybe?

  15. It's a little scary how much I can relate to almost all of these. Except my roommate was never a stripper, but a girl I went to high school with posts half naked "modeling" pictures on fb so that's close enough right? LOVE this idea and I'd love to participate:)

  16. okay #1 made me laugh!!! i also have no patience with pretty much everyone! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  17. I actually love it when people curse, in some circumstances. I feel like they're being a little more honest. :)

  18. # 9...I'm dying. I hear ya with the patience. I was an education major my freshman year of college and quickly changed out of it after a few weeks of volunteering in a kindergarten class.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Um, I'm going to need to know about Venus and the hood-pooper STAT!

    ReplyDelete

  21. I lack patience with kids (except my own, weirdly), and I majored in education and DID teach........talk about burnout!!! Kudos to you for figuring it out pre employment :)

  23. #8. no no no no no no no. That is rough! Rough!

  24. I have a few hairs on my chinny chin chin (sorry, couldn't resist) that need plucking almost every three days. It's so annoying & totally gag worthy. Not to mention I sneeze every time. #8.. couldn't help but laugh AND feel bad for you at the same time. Been there!

  25. Hilarious. Love this. Love you. You should def make this a weekly thing. By chance, I did a confessional post on Thursday too. So, see. If you had a link up, I could have participated:) And PS: I have a master's degree in education but am undecided on whether or not I am ever going to actually use the darn thing. Staying at home with my little man is a LOT more fun than being in a classroom with a bunch of other peoples' kids all day.

  30. Too funny. My college roommate was a stripper too. She even tried to get me do an ametures night. I was this close, but then came back to my senses. No way would I ever do that sober or drunk.

    I have stories for days for this confessional series. My college life, I lived with 7 others in a former soriety house. Oh those were the days. One of my roommates had so many checks (ya who uses checks now a days) bounce for Dominos pizza that they would only accept cash from us.

    The same stripper friend used to leave her didlos out in the bathroom, her bedroom dresser, hallway for all to see. And she also took a #2 on her exes car. Did we live with the same girl? Haha.
