If You Really Knew Me...

Before I get started on today's post, I just wanted to let you ladies know that I have a giveaway going on over at Agape Love Designs & Photography. Click the link below to participate. 

Now...for today's post :)

You'd know that I can't swim...unless I wear my life vest. I don't care if people make fun of me while I'm in the pool, I'm having fun not drowning. LOL!

You'd know that I've worn my hair natural for about 5 years. That means that I do not use any type of chemical in my hair to straighten it. Yes, those are all natural curls on my head.

You'd know that despite appearances, I struggle with major depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder on a daily basis. The smile on my face is real, but sometimes it's a mask so I don't make others worry about me.

You'd know that I use to write poetry from the hurt and pain that I experienced. But after I met my husband I couldn't write anymore because I no longer felt that hurt or pain.

You'd know that my favorite season is Fall and my favorite kind of day is a rainy day. It's raining here and I'm so happy right now :)

You'd know that even though I'm suppose to stay away from gluten, I'll sneak a cookie or cupcake in my mouth in a heartbeat! LOL!

What's something that I would know about you if I really knew you?

    2. Yay for transitioning! It's so liberating to wear your hair natural, the way God made it. There's a certain fierceness about it too! Thanks for following and commenting :)

  2. I once wanted to learn Japanese.

    1. Really? You should still try to learn it. I want to learn it also since I listen to it all the time when I'm watching anime. Maybe we can learn it together? :)

    2. Awesome! I downloaded a "book" in Japanese to listen to listen to. I had no clue what was going on but it was nice to listen to. I can't swim neither. I just "stand" in three feet of water and enjoy the pool. The last time I went to the salon, the girl who was doing my hair said, "You know, you should really stop wearing relaxers." I have been getting relaxers since high school. Without it, my hair is big frizzy mess....so who knows what the next phase of my hair will hold.

  3. I always love learning more about my bloggy friends. As for me, I can't swim worth a lick; not even for fun. And, no matter how small it is, I still can't manage to swallow a pill. :-)

    1. Haha! Libby, I really do think that we are long lost sisters. I hate swallowing pills, but have to due to certain medical conditions. In order for me to take meds, it has to be either liquid, a slick capsule, or a very small tablet.

  4. When I read this some of these things you wrote I thought you where talking about me. I can relate.
