When I graduated college, I didn't know what could suddenly fill all the free time I had. I was no longer running around trying to balance a campus job, classwork, 5 hr studios and a hint of a social life. I initiated this project by committing to 1 Instagram post a week sharing something about myself that people don't know. I wanted to share my own weaknesses in the hopes that others could relate.
Weekly Weakness 01: Waiting too long to get my hair cut. It feels weird that for the first time in over 17 years, I won't be taking my annual trip to the poor hair dresser's for a "back-to-school" trim. Maybe I should anyways...
Weekly Weakness 02: Sunglasses. With each new summer comes the purchase of new sunglasses. It's not that my old ones break or get lost... I just feel compelled to buy a new pair. Thankfully summer is almost over
Weekly Weakness 03: Fall. I take this whole fall thing very seriously. I've cried tears of joy walking into stores and seeing the halloween displays out when it's still shorts weather. I'm drinking pumpkin spice coffee as I write this. This is the only time of year that truly matters.
Weekly Weakness 04: Falling Asleep. As long as there's a place I can sit down and not operate heavy machinery, give me a few minutes and I'll be out. Floors, wooden chairs, and yes, movie theaters. Thankfully I have a boyfriend who doubles as an excellent pillow.
Weekly Weakness 05: Laundry. More specifically hanging up/putting away laundry. My clothing always ends up in mountains that only I can navigate. Unless that missing item is black.., then I'm finding a needle in a needlestack.
Weekly Weakness 06: Makeup Removal. Putting on makeup is fun, but taking it off is less fun. I usually don't realize until I'm confronted in the mirror with the black smudges under my eyes after a shower.
Weekly Weakness 07: Leggings. I remember vividly the day during freshman year of college that I cautiously stepped out of my dorm and went to class in leggings and that was a turning point in my life. What started as an outfit choice has turned into a habit I can't break.
Weekly Weakness 08: Tonsils. I have huge tonsils. I don't mean pretty big, I mean doctors gasp when they see those guys. I've never had them removed, but they can be annoying at times.
Weekly Weakness 09: Car Concerts. I currently have a long morning commute so I naturally need to find ways to entertain myself. I was reminded of just how "into" my car performances I get when I noticed a man in traffic cracking up at me the other day on the drive home. Glad I can make the commute a little better for everyone.
Weekly Weakness 10: House Centipedes. I have a very heightened sense when these things are around and when I spot them (sorry bug lovers) I take them out. The way they move is so unsettling to me. Fun fact: centipedes can liver over 3 years, grow 15 sets of legs, and can get up to speeds of 1.3ft/sec... you gotta know your enemy.
Weekly Weakness 11: Surprises. Hi I'm Missy and I make it my mission to spoil any sort of gift or surprise anyone tries to give me ever. I'm not trying to be a jerk, I just don't like not knowing things. And yet I still love a good surprise.
