So I thought, in an effort to come up with some content for my blog, that I would try doing some top ten posts. So here you go. Ten things I cannot live without.
Seriously, y'all. I am a very screwed up person on about 1,000 levels. It is wonderful to know that no matter how many times I screw up in a thousand different ways that he loves me enough that he died for me. That is a powerful, powerful thing to know.
Coffee is my drug of choice. I drink far too much of it but I don't care. I LOVE coffee. Good coffee, fancy coffee, plain coffee, even bad coffee is better than no coffee
3. My Mama
Aside from the literal "I wouldn't be alive with my mother having given birth to me" thing, my mom is one of my favorite people on earth. She has made me who I am today and I look an awful lot like her as well. I have no idea what I will do with myself when she dies. My mama is a brave, strong, faithful woman of God who is living with terminal lung cancer but that doesn't mean she has given up on her life.
4. My Kindle
That little device is almost constantly by my side. I have a regular kindle, not the fire or anything fancy like that because honestly? I just wanted it to be able to read, not play angry birds. I scour the "Top 100 Free" list on amazon almost every day so that I can download free books of varying genres and qualities.
5. Dairy Products
If I ever turn out to be lactose intolerant, I will cry endlessly until I die from dehydration. My two favorite foods are ice cream and cheese. I eat too much of both. As a singer, I'm supposed to avoid dairy like it is satan incarnate and I just can't do it. I now use almond milk on my cereal because it has fewer calories and more calcium for this calcium deficient girl but some how I don't think I want to try almond milk cheese. That sounds DISGUSTING.
6. Flip Flops
I have always been a bare foot kind of a girl, traipsing about in the grass without shoes early in march and on into October. Alas, now that I am 23, this is much less acceptable and I am expected to protect my tender soles and thus wear shoes. This is one of the reasons I am frequently mistaken for a teenager; when I am not working I tend to wear jeans, flip flops, and a tee shirt. Usually without make up unless I'm trying to impress someone because I'm lazy like that (and also because my skin/eyes hate make up in most forms).
So the reason I subscribed to Netflix in the first place is kind of embarrassing: I wanted premium currency in mob wars and they had an offer for said cash with a Netflix trial. I signed up and never looked back. It fuels my addiction to SVU and Bones and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic (yes, I watch My Little Pony like a small child).
8. Liquid eyeliner
Like most women, I have gone through some seriously questionable make up phases. I also just got done telling you that I don't wear make up when I don't have to. Still true but when I do, I have an addiction to black liquid eye liner. I've been trying out various brands, hoping that I can find one of the "marker" varieties that will actually adhere over my eye shadow but alas, not so much. I think I have four different tubes in my make up bag right now.
9. My pillow
I have a memory foam pillow that I love. It's kind of funny when people pick it up for the first time. Reaction 1 is usually "ooh! squishy!" Reaction 2 is usually "OMG heavy!" It weighs about 50 pounds... and by 50 I mean about 10 but still that is one beast of a pillow. I think it would win in any pillow fight. For serious.
I know that is far to general but this is my list not yours. I need my ipod and also my own ability to hum/sing whenever I so desire. Seriously. I will sing and walk around the house. Music is my friend and I think part of me would die if I didn't have music.
So there you have it. Ten things I can't live without.
