5 things about me


There was a big trend (maybe there still is) going around the blogsphere where people were spilling the 5 things about them. I thought at the time it might be trite to jump on the band wagon, but here goes...

5 things about me 

  1. If I'm not working, reading, browsing the web or making lists, I am dead asleep. I cannot watch TV or a movie, and not be doing something else at the exact same time. Mr. S attributes it to my being so Type A that the moment my brain relaxes, I pass out cold. It's great for Mr. S if he's sick of me for the evening - just pop in a movie, take away my phone/iPad/computer and it's "good night Lacy." 

  2. I'm fascinated watching people. When I go out to eat I am so bad about staring at people in the restaurant that I typically face myself away from the action because I know I'll be distracted from what's going on at my own table. At an airport I turn into a creep because the people are just so darn interesting I can't take my eyes off of them. I've learned to control my staring face-  transfixed eyes, perplexed look, sometimes a dropped jaw - but there's nothing that excites me more than being at the airport, a coffee shop or especially dining out at a restaurant just watching the people around me interacting with each other. We are all a strange bunch.

  3. I get more energy from being alone than I do from being with others. I can socialize with the best of them, but I'm happiest when I don't have to interact with anyone and can be with myself. I learned this after jumping into a semester in Charleston, SC knowing hardly a soul. I did leave with a lot of friends, but it didn't start that way, and I learned to be okay with me very quickly. Lunch alone at a restaurant is still one of my favorite things to do - and not just for the people watching, I swear!

  4. I regret my trip to Africa. Not the actual trip itself or the experiences I had, but the fact that I was so young, stayed such a short time and didn't focus on where I was when I was there. The whole time I was away I was too focused on my next step and starting my career. If I could go back, I'd tell myself to stay 2 years, do good work for the people there, and that the working world and all it's glory would be there with open arms to challenge me whenever I got back to the states. I'm ready for another adventure, can you tell?

  5. I'm not a strict parent. Mr. S is the strong-man around these parts, the guy who lays down the doggie laws. I'm the push-over Mom who sneaks the pups treats when they're not supposed to have them late at night, let's them get into bed with us when they beg and brings home at least one new toy every week for the puppies. I'm not sure what that says about my actual parenting skills, but I'd like to think that when it comes time to have kids my stellar logical reasoning & discussion skills will be my strong suit as a parenting genius. Ehh I'm probably kidding myself, right?
