Funny Confessions

  1. When I eat raw nuts like cashews or almonds, I always look for the broken pieces or halves first. I don’t know what it is, but I always choose broken pieces over whole pieces. If the broken pieces are gone, I go for the obscure and deformed looking nuts. Why do I do this? It’s kinda weird, right?
  2. The first thing I do when my alarm goes off in the morning is check the weather on my phone … while I’m still in bed. I know I’m not the only one though, right Cinnamon Eats?
  3. My bedroom closet doors must be shut before I go to bed at night. It really bugs me to have to doors open and even though it’s dark, I can still look up from bed and see the dark hole inside the closet. I feel safer with the doors closed. Jesse laughs at me for this.
  4. I like corner pieces of baked goods the best. If there’s corners to choose from, that is. I like corners because they usually have a little bit of crispiness and I like the variety in texture. I know I’m not the only corner lover too. In fact, they even make special brownie pans, so that every piece is a corner piece. Kinda ridiculous, but I get it. Would I ever buy one though? Absolutely not.
  5. I still laugh about certain bodily functions, particularly those involved with digestion, even though it’s not always a laughing matter. I know farts (or flatulence if I want to be really proper) and poop are extremely important bodily functions and an indicator of our health, but I still laugh just as hard at these things as I did when I was a kid. Maybe not so much about poop, but farts, yes. I know, I’m really mature. Even my yoga teacher jokes about farts in class, probably because it’s often a place where farts happen! She even encourages us to fart out loud if we have to, but I’ve yet to know of someone doing it on purpose … usually, it’s always by accident. I’ve learned to hold my laughter when people fart in yoga though because it happens far too often. One time, even my aforementioned teacher farted really loud while demoing! It was classic and we all laughed, but I think she laughed the hardest.
  6. I’m paranoid about braking hard. You see, I have this little device plugged into my car that detects every time I brake hard and emits three beeps whenever I do so. I rarely brake hard, although there are circumstances when I have to because of other cars in front of me. It essentially trains drivers not to brake hard, which is why it beeps. The less hard brakes I have, the bigger discount I get on my car insurance. Last time, I got about $70 back!
  7. I own more Lululemon attire than regular clothes. I wear workout clothes every single day. Whether, I’m going to yoga, working at the gym, taking class at the gym, doing fitness testing at school and so forth, I’m always in my Lululemon gear. In fact, I have so much Lululemon that I can’t even fit it all in my dresser drawers. Some is in my drawers, some in the closet, some on top of my dresser, and some on top of the dryer. There’s usually always some in the hamper too. It’s a little ridiculous. I’m partial to Lululemon because their stuff is high-quality, looks great and holds up, but I also used to work there. Employees there are treated very well, so I stocked up while I could. Plus, we had to wear it to work and it was best if you always had at least one current piece on, because people always want what you’re wearing. I don’t get as generous of a discount anymore, but I still get a small one since I work in the fitness industry. It’s better than nothing. It’s pretty seldom when I shop there now, though.
  8. I really, really want a wiener dog (aka Dachshund). I have wanted a Dachshund my whole life because they are small and so darn cute and long-bodied. I always grew up with Beagles, which I highly adore as well, but I want my first dog of my own to be a Dachshund. Unfortunately, it’s not a good time for us to have a pooch yet. Neither of us are around enough to take care of it and we can’t have dogs where we live … only cats.
  9. I’ve had the following jobs in my life: babysitter, pizza & grinder maker at Mancino’s, Dairy Queen server (for 6 summers!), retail at Summit Sports (a ski/snowboard/bike/kayak storeΒ that used to be in my hometown), telemarketer at The Alpena News, hospital food service worker, data entry, receptionist at a massage/health food store, bartender at a brewery, sales rep for a cell phone company, teacher at a child development center, junior account executive at a boutique PR agency, educator at Lululemon Athletica, customer experience specialist at The Bar Method, administrative/marketing/HR assistant for a tech company, treat maker at a paleo food cart, freelance writer, and fitness coach. Holy moly, that’s a lot of jobs! And to think that I’m only 27 (I’ll be 28 soon though…March 2nd!).
  10. I haven’t parallel parked since my driver’s test, nearly 12 years ago. It was the one and only time. Portland is full of parallel parking opportunities, but I avoid them at all costs. If I can pull in without having to do the full parallel park, I’m fine, but I avoid the full-on process.

    Haha your weather comment made me laugh! I’m even worse in that I check the weather for here, Australia and America lol! So I’ll check the city we’re in now, then I’ll check Melbourne and Perth in Australia and then Michigan haha as if their weather has anything to do with me! I’m the same with having to have closets closed… In fact all doors in the bedroom have to be closes otherwise I can’t sleep! Oh and I’m hopeless at parallel parking and England or at least where we are has parallel parking everywhere!!!

    Well this was a great read and lots of fun! πŸ™‚

      Thanks, Naz! So funny, I check the weather at multiple places too (Portland, Alpena, Bend (Oregon), Seattle and Honolulu). We’re silly, I suppose. I love that you have to have the closets closed too. I’m not alone!! It’s fun finding out how much alike we are πŸ™‚

    I love this! And, by the way, we have to be careful not to let out the monsters in the closet at night at our place too! πŸ™‚

    • paleoinpdx February 19, 2013 / 2:50 pm

      Exactly! I’m glad you understand πŸ˜‰

    • paleoinpdx February 19, 2013 / 2:50 pm

      I’m really not the only one!

      • Shonnie February 19, 2013 / 2:52 pm
