things that say a lot about people.

"things that say a lot about people:
the way in which they treat the waiter/waitress
how they feel about the weather
whether they dog ear pages or highlight in books
and hands in general
their preferred creative outlet
how much they dread/enjoy talking on the phone
whether or not they drink coffee
if they ever forget to eat
how honest they are with themselves (and others)
if they correct your grammar
and whether or not they get nervous before haircuts."
[quote/idea taken from carlotta's blog]

a. If I was a waitress, I would want to be treated like a friend. So I try to do that with waiters/waitresses that come my way. Obviously, it can be a bit awkward at times, but a smile and a bit of friendly conversation always seems to brighten their day.

b. The weather actually affects my health quite a bit. On sunny days I am perky and happy and excited about life, but when it rains I get headaches and spend all day reading a book or watching a TV show. I love the changes in the weather, but I prefer sunshine far over rainy days.

c. I don't like to highlight/underline/star/circle anything in my books. I did it for school, but personal books are clean and fresh like the day I bought them. Of course, they get dogeared if they are an especially good book, and I'm okay with that.

d. My fingernails are clean but worn around the edges. I pick at the skin around the nails (ew! gross! tmi!) and it's a bad habit I need to quit. Now. Hey, I'll get on that. They are usually painted, but the polish chips off quickly and I leave it like that until I can't stand it any longer. I guess that says a lot about me, huh?

e. I have always loved talking on the phone. I was the girl who called the icecream truck company and asked when their truck would be coming through our neighborhood. Nothing is sweeter than hearing a friend's voice on the other end of the line. But when it comes down to it, I would MUCH rather see people in person.

f. I don't really drink coffee. I've started drinking a Salted Caramel Mocha when I go to Starbucks but that's about it. Let the comment wars begin!

g. HA. Me forget to eat? Please. I always eat every meal.

h. I don't like being honest with myself (if I can be honest here ;)). It's hard to come to terms with different things that I don't like about myself. With others, if someone asks me to be honest with them I will be. But I'm not one to go around and give my honest opinion to everyone who walks by me.

i. I'm not a grammer nazi. Or whatever they are called. If someone has bad grammer, I usually just let it slide. I am very particular about my own grammer though.

j. I always get a bit nervous before a haircut even though I usually only get an inch or two taken off and/or my layers freshened up. The only time I got a drastic haircut was when I was eight years old and I wanted to have a bob. I regretted it a few days later. #eightyearoldproblems
