10 Random Things About Me

1) I met Justin Timberlake at Urban Outfitters and talked to him alone in the corner for a good minute or so. It's a story in itself.

2) Whenever I need to concentrate or focus on completing a paper (more so in college) or my résumé ... I listen to this over and over and over. I love it. It is my forever "FOCUS" song.

3) In 6th Grade, I tried to be a massive Hippie. I looked like I lived in BC times. Then in 7th and 8th grade, I decided to dress like a Gangsta. I wore JNCOs and a beanie. If my parents hadn't been busy being so confused, they would probably have disowned me.
My Middle School Life in a Nutshell- minus any coolness exhibited in these photos. Images VIA 1 | 2.
4) I've never had the patience to complete a game of Monopoly. Have you? As far as my memory goes; that game ends when your sister accuses you of stealing from the bank, throws her money in your face and screams "MOM!!!!" as she runs down the hall.

5) I was a 4-year Athletic Letterer in high school. Not to sound like the Uncle in Napoleon Dynamite but I still have a sense of pride about that.

6) I've basically always worked since age 16 and have appreciated that quality in me. That is until Instagram and I now get to see the contrast in my day verses that of 5-year-old Kendall Jenner in her Bentley or any NBA wife who is seemingly a professional heel-wearer. Now I question the so-called value of this 'work ethic'.

7) I can't believe how much I love watching Ari Gold on "Entourage". I NEVER want those scenes to end.
I love him so much. IMAGE VIA.
8) I still like Ginger Spice's outfits.

9) I've told everyone I know that at my funeral (knock on wood), I want a photo montage to Michael Jackson's "Earth Song". That ballad still gives me goosebumps.

10) For my last one, I asked my boyfriend to tell me something random about myself. He replied "Um... you usually are sitting in that armchair at night" and then left to brush his teeth. Riveting.

 From the armchair that is apparently my trademark: Enjoy your Tuesday.

Leave it to you to have the most interesting random facts. You met JT??????? I want to hear that story. I too dressed like a gangsta but it was in 6th and 7th grade which makes sense since I am a couple years older than you. My family STILL makes fun and is confused. Lol.

Pat Hatt said...

LMAO your BF sounds like he knows you so well. Been working for that long at least too, sucks looking at those rich people haha

Nice dirt Miss Caitlin.

I am with you on Monopoly. That and Risk kill me. With Monopoly, when there is no way out, I make the kids play a timed game so the end is always in sight.

And on your #1, I would not be surprised if somewhere in a Justin diary or anonymous blog, he documented getting to talk to you.

Enjoy your Tuesday.

Jaime @ laviejaime said...

whhat?! what did you and JT talk about? lol and do you like his new song? it's growing on me

totally agree about #4...same with Life.

JW | PEONY said...

yesss! Ari Gold! - He's soooo mean, but SO funny.

happy hour 24/7 said...

OMG! you have no idea how much i have missed your blog (and many others on my reading list!!!). at some point, everyone cheats during monopoly because it takes too damn long to finish. well, when i say cheat, i steal money from the bank when no one is looking! hahahaha

I will forever be a BSB fan, but JT is JT, swoon! So jealous! Have you heard his new song? & yeah, if you didn't ever dress like a gangsta/homie, you didn't live. (I miss my dickes.) I kinda wish I was a professional heel-wearer, or a NBA baller wife, actually NFL. (The chicks on Basketball Wives are cray!) I don't know about Ginger Spice outfits, but I sure wanted her hair color, still do.

Sam said...

I love #6 about the work ethic! I laugh (and cry? haha) about that all the time - they do nothing!

Also your boyfriends creativity on the last one is pretty cute. :)

naghmeh said...

ok that focus song is awesome! thanks for sharing. and I'm so jealous of your minute with JT! I want to know that story for sure. LOL at your middle school years I'm sure it really must have confused your parents hippie to gangster is very extreme but if you don't experiment you don't learn :)

Blicious said...

Don Sergio said...

1. Nice, i think he's a very cool down to earth dude!

June said...

Thats such a cute post Cait! I enjoyed reading it! The only difference is I'm 25 and I still wanna be a hippie or a rocker girl half the time!!

Femme Frugality said...

Haha middle school is a confusing time for everyone. I've finished a game of monopoly before! And Risk. Those statements aren't necessarily reflective of good character traits.

Unknown said...

Also, Ari is the best and monopoly usually ends in an earthquake and evryone loses their homes and money how sad!
