If We Met || It's Me

Again, dear readers, I am not able to talk with each of you face-to-face.  This makes me more sad than you know!  In hopes to give you some more perspective of the life of this blogger behind the screen, here are seven things you might notice if we met.

1.  I have an obsession with Spanish.
It's been an obsession seriously ever since I was a four-year-old girl having a dream about witnessing in a Spanish speaking country.  Maybe it's the fact that my dad is a pastor who used to frequently go on missions trips, or maybe it's because my mom is so big on international Christianity.  Either way, Spanish-ness and the wonderful language itself have a part in my past and have a place to stay.

So, if we ever meet, prepare yourself for movie watching.. in Spanish. Brace yourself for random song outbursts.. in Spanish.  And I apologize in advance when I start speaking to you, occasionally, in Spanish.  If you come in my car, too, well the tunes might sound a little foreign to your ears cause I got my Spanish Hillsong jam.  I'm nowhere near fluent, though, but I seem to love it more each time I speak/hear/listen/write it.

2.  I can be absolutely terrible at texting or messaging back.
Call it short-term memory loss or blame it on the fact that my phone could basically be anywhere at any given time (and I probably couldn't tell you where), but it's just the unintentional reality.

{Really, I'm trying to improve, though..}

3.  I'll always choose left.
When faced with the choice: right or left? my theory is: always take the road left traveled...

4.  I (potentially) have problems navigating... through my home-town.
Starbucks drinker {leaning over to my table}: Hey, do you know you way around this city really well?
Me: oh! I'm so sorry, but I don't... (to myself: uhm, why don't I know this?  Wait.  You've been living here for ten years, Deborah, and don't know your way around {the struggle is real}.  Well, this is awkward..)

5. I just really love shoes (like, a lot).
When I was five years old, my dad lost me.  We were in Target, and I disappeared.  He ended up finding me... in the shoe section.  Ever since then, I like to say, my love of those wonderful things we put on our feet have only grown.

I may potentially dig pretty strange ones, too, and match them with outfits that are.. unconventional.  (Hey, somebody's gotta do it, right?)  My Dominican Republic canvas shoes may have seen the sunlight (or lack-of) more than a few times in the middle of winter even, and -let me tell you- they have negative two traction. 

6.  I'm a men's small.
Being a tall-ish and broad-shouldered girl has it's downsides (though I think it's like amazing, in general). Truth be told, a men's small in clothes can fit me pretty well, and my man clothes are some of my favorites (this zip-up I have, though..).

It only gets a little weird when you're at a youth retreat and you see a guy wearing a shirt that you happen to also have brought with.  {It just keeps life fun, right?}

7. One word: croutons.  
I'm not big on comfort food, but I do have a go-to snack: croutons (Olive Garden ones, in particular).  I may have been recently found sitting on the floor with a mega-sized bag of these crunching and typing away.  (Really, there's just a seasoning that can't be beat..)

Now it's your turn!  I would love to hear something(s) that I would notice about you on the other side of this screen if we met.  Feel free to comment below!


I definitely don't want this to be a monologue. What are your thoughts? Questions? Ideas?
