seven questions

Funny Pic: in Rome, Italy getting gelato the last night. The tiramisu was to die for!

1. What do you do when you're sick? (Do you act like a baby? Tough it out? Have any weird cravings? Cry?)
I do a cross between act like a baby and tough it out. I act like I am dying at home but still go to work and get things done that have to be done. I have to be on my death bed to miss work for feeling sick.

2. What do you do to find motivation when you feel you've lost it?
Either wait for it to come back or find something to spark my interest again. With cooking I am always trying new recipes to keep things fun for me. With working out I tend to drag my butt massively, I wouldn't do it if I didn't have people holding me accountable. I don't know what happened though because I was a gym rat when I met Jeremy. Now for scripture memory I have been putting post it notes on the mirror so I see them...Jeremy picks on me for how long I take getting ready(even for bed). 

3. Do you wish time away or do you savor every moment?
It depends on what is going on. When traveling I tend to savor the moment easily. With life as it is now I am constantly wishing it away and for good reason. Jeremy has about a year left of school and a year of interning after that, I rarely see him these days and feel like the time I could spend with him is constantly hi-jacked by other yes I am wishing this time away like crazy. Sadly my ability to communicate sucks and instead of saying let's spend time alone comes out more like "I hate __________." Which most recently is eating out. We don't go on dates alone hardly ever...but group events seem to be abundant. I am so ready for this time of life to escape me. 

4. If you could be any mythological creature, what would you be, and why?
For some reason I can only think of Medusa and the Sirens right now. I am in a bit of a bitter hateful mood so let's go with Medusa. 

5. What is your current biggest weakness and are you working on fixing it?
I'm a huge chicken. My fear of insane dogs(the neighbors psycho pit-bull) and lizards is just crazy. If a lizard or frog gets in my house its game over. Lord help me if a snake ever comes inside, I'll move out. I did good today though, I saw a dead frog and 2 dead lizards and did not freak out. 

6. How do you greet someone when meeting them for the first time?
I usually just say "Hey, I'm Emily." and shake hands. I'm not much for hugging or that awkward fist bump mess.

7. How do you grocery shop? (Do you write up a list? Go in with no idea what you're looking for? Havemeal plans? Bring your own shopping bags?)
I'm a bit obsessive with lists. If I think of it ahead of time I will start working on my list for a full week. Otherwise I make it Sunday before shopping. But I have to have a list or I forget things,and even with one I still forget stuff.
