So when I saw someone tweet recently that she was one of those girls that made lists for everything and even actually added items to her list when she finished them, just so she could cross them off the list — I thought to myself, “Ohhhh emmmmm geeeee I’m totally that girl too!”
And then I realized something funny – we women spend so much time trying not to be that girl, whatever that girl represents at the time, that we miss out on the fun of just being ourselves sometimes.
So on this Friday, I’d like to change that (even if just for a day).
Here are some of the things that I’m totally that girl about, and I have no shame in these at all:
1. Just to expound a bit on this list thing… I am definitely one of those girls who makes a list for everything. Need groceries? I make a list. Weekend coming up? I make a list on what I’m going to do, and yes – despite protests of friends, I add my social activities on there as well. I even make lists about who I plan to call during the day. And yes, if I do something (or buy something) that was not already on the list, I add it to the list and cross it off. Don’t judge me lol
2. I am absolutely one of those girls that gets giddy when she talks to a guy she likes. My voice changes, I can’t stop smiling, I want to talk about him all the time, and y’all already know I twirl my hair… oh yea – I’m that girl.
3. I’m also one of those girls who will find a way to justify a great shoe purchase. “Sure, it may not have been in my budget, but I needed this pair of pumps. All my other black pumps are starting to wear down.” <– I said that to someone the other day. And when she countered with the fact that I actually bought not one, but two pairs of pumps, I still found a way to justify it. “But I needed the pink ones too,” I protested. mmmm hmmm.
4. And finally, I’m definitely one of those girls who will at least ice grill you if you’ve done my friend really dirty. Petty stuff I don’t usually get into, but if I saw a friend cry over you? Oh, best believe – I’m not a happy camper.
But enough about me – what about you all? What are some things that make you laugh about yourself and say, “mmm hmm I’m that girl, alright”? And guys – I don’t know if you all talk about being that guy, but if you do – join in the fun as well! It’s Friday. We might as well laugh at ourselves together.
