Four Things About Me


I’ve seen this post floating around blog land for a bit and thought I’d jump on the bandwagon.

I’ve been busy lately and my mind is running in 5 different directions everyday. I’ve come up with multiple blog post ideas but have had no time to actually sit down and write a decent post. I’m feeling very unmotivated by blogging lately and questioning, what’s the point. This happened last summer as well. My blogging goes through cycles and it’s just a down time right now. 

That’s my little disclaimer to say, I wish I could write more authentic and heartfelt posts lately, rather than the bumpdates.

Until then, here are some categories of my life broken out into fours:

Four Jobs I’ve Had
1. Lifeguard
2. Nanny
3. Promotions Director for boating magazine
4. Program Manager for Creative Thinking training company

Four things in my bag:
1. Phone
2. Protein bar
3.  A mess of crumpled receipts dating months back
4.  Too many chap sticks, lip glosses, and lip sticks

Four movies I have watched more than once or ten times: 
1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
2. Gone With The Wind
3. It’s A Wonderful Life
4. Father of the Bride

And a bonus number 5 in honor of the 15 year Anniversary of the masterpiece Center Stage.

Four places I’ve lived:
1. Lancaster, PA (place where I was born and where I currently live)

1. England
2. Ireland 
3. Maui, Hawaii

Four Current TV shows I watch:

  • I have been trying to rack my brain with who you remind me of from the movies, and then BAM! you look like the girl from Center Stage!!!! So pretty! Yes please to some vodka and lemonade! One of my favorites too!

      OMG, you just made my 17 year old self’s day! I thought she was the prettiest thing ever with super magical hair powers!!! I’ll be missing lemonade and vodka on my deck and at the beach this summer. Gonna have to settle for some pink lemonade with a splash of sprite.

  • I <3 Taylor Swift. Not ashamed. Let's just say I liked her before she was cool, haha. She's got a new video coming out tomorrow, I think, and I'm pretty excited.

    • kwalshmac

      Oh yes, I’ve been a fan since her Teardrops On My Guitar days, and no shame whatsover!! This will be my third time seeing her in concert and she always puts on such a great show.

  • I feel you on the blogging front. I have ideas, but I don’t have time and when I do have time, I don’t feel like putting the ideas together… I think it’s all the sunshine, I’d just rather be out there enjoying it 🙂
    I’d totally go to a Taylor Swift concert 🙂

    • kwalshmac

      Oh yes, especially after the brutal winter we just had over here, I’d much rather be outside than looking at my computer after work hours. I find that readers go way down during the summertime to. Everyone should just be out living their lives.
