Everybody has their quirks and rituals. You may have to sit in the same spot every single day. Grab your daily morning coffee from your favorite caffeine shop. Or running the same route at the same time every day. The fact is rituals are everywhere. It’s our safe spot in life. Nothing can harm us during our daily, much needed, rituals. Enjoy my quirks and rituals…
Brought to you by…Me!!!
Love of Music: The very first thing in my life that I absolutely love is music. I could not get through this crazy life without it. I listen to it during my drives, during my runs, and during my house projects. Each song reminds me of a memory from my childhood and my early adulthood. Like what could have happened with a love interest, and many different feelings that I love and some that I don’t really like. Music also helps me to unleash my imagination. I think of characters and different love scenarios. It takes me to a dream place that I love to go to.
Love and Running: I absolutely crave getting out and exploring my neighborhood and nature. The wind on my face is so invigorating. My most favorite thing to do is run in the rain. I put on some John Mayer, and dream of fictional loves. I love it. His song “No Such Thing” brings me back to high school and I think about all of the classmates I have crossed paths with in my past. It’s kind of nice to remind yourself where you came from and the people that molded you. So thank you fellow senior classmates for helping me to find myself during the best year of my life. YOU GUYS ROCK! You know who y’all are!
Coffee: There is a Starbucks in the grocery store I always go to, and the barista’s know me and my drink. If you’re wondering what my favorite drink is: A grande iced latte with one splenda and extra ice. That my friends is the BEST coffee drink ever. I always get this. I freakin’ love when the barista already knows my drink and I don’t have to explain. They say,”You want the usual?” I’m like,”Hell yes!” Well minus the hell part, but yes please! So if you ever want to buy me a coffee, you know what to do!
Biting My Nails (My little finger.): This has to be the weirdest quirk of mine. My husband absolutely hates it. Whenever I want to relax or I’m very deep in thought, my little finger goes straight into my mouth and I flick the nail on my front teeth. By doing this, I make a clicking noise that is pretty much annoying to anybody who is in my personal space. I don’t bite my nail off, I just flick it. I know, super weird. It’s just soo relaxing! I freakin’ love it.
Herbal Tea: Every night before I go to sleep, I make myself a cup of relaxing herbal tea. It puts my mind into sleep mode. I love to hold a warm mug between my hands, and breathe the warm humid steam from the tea. And every tea bag has an inspirational quote that I love to read. (There are times where I want to post the quote, but I thought it would be super weird.)
HOLY CRAP, The View: How could I forget the number one ritual/quirk of mine?! Every morning consists of me drinking two cups of coffee, with cream and honey, and watching The View. The women make me cringe sometimes, but I love listening to all of their opinions. It’s hilarious!
Current Events: I have to read the news when I get up in the morning, and before I can go to sleep at night because I have to know what is happening in the world. Pop-culture news is my favorite, but politics is a very close second.
Yes, I can be a very weird soul, but I love every minute of this life. I enjoy the smallest things that happen in my life. I love morning the air! It’s so cool, crisp and it smells like rain. Rain is the greatest gift anyone can receive. Gloomy days, open books, and hot cups of coffee. Just a few of my favorite things. (I may have to write about my favorite things.) It won’t be as good as Oprah’s, but it may be entertaining.
Thank you for reading this nonsense! You guys are amazing.
Until next time America…
