The other day Juliette posted a few things that she never thought she'd do/like and I liked the idea so much that I told her I was going to steal it, then she went and made it into a link up!
I never thought I'd...
...enjoy mountain biking. The first time I tried it, it was alright. I fell a few times, and I didn't have a terrible time but it wasn't something I was too excited about. But after trying it a few times, I think I fell in love. I'm no pro, but it's something that I've definitely grown to love. The adrenaline and feeling of accomplishment are hard to beat!
...be a gym rat. Throughout high school, I was athletic (and by that I mean I played every sport possible) so I was in shape. During college, the sports went a way but I went through bouts of "exercising" for a few weeks at a time but quit because it was hard and I'd rather sleep in or something equally as lazy. Now, I'm up before 5 in the morning (never thought I'd be a morning person either) to hit the gym 4-5 times a week.
...take 6 years to graduate college. With an associates. I'm almost ashamed of it, but I told myself a long time ago that it isn't about how fast I get done, but the fact that I never gave up. Even though I'm still "in college" (and probably will be for several years to come) I don't feel like a "college student." I've had a career and bills and other grown up things for over two years now so I think that counts me out.
...be able to go a day (and sometimes two!) without washing my hair, but it's getting easier and easier!
...live anywhere other than the beach. Before college, my dream was to gradate and move back to southern Alabama and start my life there. But life (and Derek) happened and now I'm living in central Alabama, three hours away from the beach.
...meet people that I met on the internet. But blogging is so awesome and it allows me to do just that! I recently told one of my best IRL friends that I'd not only met, but drove three hours to hang out with another blogger TWICE. She didn't say I was weird or anything but I could totally tell she didn't quite get it.
...be a DIY person. And really, I still don't know if I will be, but I've been bitten by the DIY but hard. There are so many things I want to do to decorate my apartment (and future home) like this metallic vase Brooks made. That's another thing I'll be adding on my "things to do after I graduate" list.
...like the color pink or chocolate. Oh wait... I still don't like those.
