I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more. Which I think all…

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.
I, personally, don’t have this problem with my clients…kids and dogs are among my favorite things to photograph. Maybe it’s because I like to have any excuse…

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

Horoscopes

So, because I’m tired today and I thought this was cute, I decided to follow in Merry’s footsteps from Mom and More and play the horoscope game.

The rules are simple. Below is a list of each of the twelve months. Copy paste your birth month into the beginning of the entry and then tell your readers which of the descriptions are accurate – the blogger can simply highlight the affirmative or give an overall explanation. I will more than likely give long explanations.

Me, I’m a July baby…so here we go:

JULY:

FUN TO BE WITH.
Pshhh, likes this EVEN needs to be answered. Of course I’m fun to be with. I can do 5 shots of tequila then chug half a bottle of wine before passing out. ‘Nuff said.

SECRETIVE.
Surprisingly, yes. Not about major things, I guess…but in the way of, I love surprises. Sometimes, there’s just no reason for certain people to know certain things. It’s none of their business. And yet, I write about my most personal experiences online. Hmmm. Curious.

DIFFICULT TO FATHOM AND TO BE UNDERSTOOD.
I think this sentence is difficult to fathom and to be understood.

QUIET UNLESS EXCITED OR TENSED.
Hm, I wouldn’t describe me as quiet necessarily. I tend to be a little more shy or reserved if I’m in large groups or with people I don’t know well. Other than that, I’m pretty outspoken. ESPECIALLY when excited. However, if I’m tense, I think I’m also quiet. There’s a reason why I’m tense or stressed and so I’m probably focusing on whatever that is.

TAKES PRIDE IN ONESELF.
I am a very proud person. And I have a lot to be proud of regarding all aspects and all people in my life. I’m proud of my brother, my sister, my mom, my dad, the Boyfriend!…I’m even proud of my dog. And myself. I’ve come a long and worked my way up from an intern to a producer in just two years. However, I think I am level-headed and I try very hard not to allow my pride to dictate my actions. That’s simply arrogance.

HAS REPUTATION.
Huh?!?! What have you heard???

EASILY CONSOLED.
Oh god, no. If something upsets me, I tend to stay upset for a while. I mean, people can hold me and make me laugh, but I am terrible at holding grudges and I am very vengeful!

HONEST.
Yes. I’m an awful liar. I always tug on my earlobe when I’m lying.

CONCERNED ABOUT PEOPLE’S FEELINGS.
Too much. I worry way too much about other people. To the point where I sometimes put other people’s needs before my own.

TACTFUL.
Usually. There’s the occasional angry slip-up.

FRIENDLY.
Yes. Unless you look creepy/scary. Then I stare at the sidewalk and clutch my purse closer to my ribs as I pass you.

APPROACHABLE.
The Boyfriend! and I had a conversation about this last night actually. We were talking about how I hardly ever get hit on at bars. I seriously have NO IDEA why I’m considered unapproachable sometimes. I’m usually very animated and talkative at bars. I strike up conversations with everyone, girls and guys, but for some reason I am always the girl who goes home sans any phone numbers. Not that it matters NOW, but it’s annoying since Sean gets hit on even with me standing there holding his hand!

EMOTIONAL TEMPERMENTAL AND UNPREDICTABLE.
Er–no, um, of course not. Ok, fine, FINE! I’m emotional. I admit it. And yes to tempermental. Unpredictable….mmm, I think I’m pretty predictable actually, so I’ll say no to that one.

MOODY AND EASILY HURT.
Moody, depends on the time of month. Easily hurt, yes. But I try not to show it too often. Then all my anger and tears come out because of something stupid.

WITTY AND SPARKLY.
Hm, this is hard to answer without tooting any of my own horns. I’ll try to manuever around them carefully. I think I can be witty. Especially with writing. Sometimes in conversation not so much though. I’m much more clever when I can thoroughly think something through and use spell check and thesaurus before publishing. And Sparkly….ohhhh, I LIKE sparkly things so I would love to think of myself as being SPARKLY. Yes, I think I shine like sequins!

NOT REVENGEFUL.
False. I am so all about revenge. Turn the other cheek? Sure…I’ll let you get all the slaps you want in. But the second you’re finished, watch out.

FORGIVING BUT NEVER FORGETS.
Indeed. I forgive. I forgive pretty easily actually. If you apologize after wronging me and you seem sincere, I’ll accept your apology. However, I will never put my guard down again with you. All trust is lost.

DISLIKES NONSENSICAL AND UNNECESSARY THINGS.
Er, not so sure about this one. Dislikes nonsensical things? Um, I dunno…I get a laugh about nonsensical things. And I tend to buy a LOT of items that are unnecessary.

GUIDES OTHERS PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY.
Physically? No. Sean guides ME physically. I would not be going to the gym AT ALL if it wasn’t for him. Mentally, maybe. I tend to be a shoulder to cry on a lot, but it always seems to be mutual.

SENSITIVE AND FORMS IMPRESSIONS CAREFULLY.
I am very sensitive. And I try not to judge anyone too quickly.

CARING AND LOVING.
Extremely.

TREATS OTHERS EQUALLY.
Absolutely. Except for my servants.

STRONG SENSE OF SYMPATHY.
God yes. I feel sympathy and empathy for fictional characters too.

WARY AND SHARP.
I think so. I am usually very wary of people and situations if I sense something is off. If it seems suspicious, usually it’s for a reason. And I like to think that my gut instinct is usually right on. And yes, my fingernails are very sharp. Watch out! I could stab you!

JUDGES PEOPLE THROUGH OBSERVATIONS.
Uh, I guess so. Doesn’t everyone? I mean, you observe people’s actions, reactions, decisions, and personalities and based on that you make a judgment or decision. It can be good or bad. But I think one way or another, you form an opinion about those around you. And those opinions change daily. For instance, I met a new intern today at my office. He’s quiet and tends to look at people while somehow keeping his chin against his neck. Through this observation, I am assuming he is a little shy and nervous.

HARDWORKING.
Absolutely.

NO DIFFICULTIES IN STUDYING.
False. I have a short attention span so studying has always been a struggle for me.

ALWAYS BROODS ABOUT THE PAST AND THE OLD FRIENDS.
Um, I wouldn’t say I BROOD about old friends and the past. But I definitely love to reminisce about the good ole days.

LIKES TO BE QUIET.
To BE quiet? Eh, not really. I like things around me to be quiet though. I’ve never been into loud, noise clubs or anything. I much prefer a lounge where I can sit and talk with friends.

HOMELY PERSON.
Homely?? WHO YOU CALLING HOMELY??

WAITS FOR FRIENDS.
Um, sure. I’ll wait for my friends. Especially if they’re running late and call me. I may play a prank though and drive off, leaving them in the parking lot confused. No wait, that’s my boyfriend who does that.

NEVER LOOKS FOR FRIENDS.
Only if I am expecting one to show up. Then I keep an eye out. Otherwise, no. But no, I do not SEEK OUT new friends. I am always open to meeting new people though.

NOT AGGRESSIVE UNLESS PROVOKED.
True. I will definitely stand up for myself and for my friends if the situation calls for it, but overall I am a huge coward. Confrontation scares the bejeezus out of me.

PRONE TO HAVING STOMACH AND DIETING PROBLEMS.
No. I don’t think so. Although I can be a little gassy after certain meals. Does that count?

LOVES TO BE LOVED.
No. I hate being loved. Everytime my boyfriend utters the words “I love you” in that whiny lovesick voice of his, I slap him across the face and scream at him. “You KNOW how much I hate that! Why do you insist on loving me?!?! WHY???”

EASILY HURT BUT TAKES LONG TO RECOVER.
This is true. I am emotional. And I take EVERYTHING to heart. And I remember almost every negative thing said about me ever. Somehow, though, I never manage to remember the compliments and the sweet things. Hm. Perhaps I should switch my focus.
