A Little More About Me

Hi all,

I figured it might be nice for you all to get to know me for who I really am. So I thought I’d tell you a bit more about myself. I’m 25 years old living in Waterloo, ON with my boyfriend of 1.5 years. I love all things girly, cooking, shopping, makeup, dogs, reading, jewelry, making my own jewelry and DIY projects. I’m also a big fan of snowmobiling and have found my love of winter these last 3 years. Of course the last two have been the mildest winters yet and I haven’t been able to make it out. *sad face* Stupid lack of snow! What can ya do...

I’m the type of person who will be there for the people I care about(or anyone really)  NO MATTER WHAT. I would drop whatever I was doing to support a friend or be a shoulder to cry on. I love listening and I always try to give the best advice possible. I also get bothered when I give people advice they should have listened to and didn’t.. and it blows up in their face. I’m not the type to say “I told you so” but will say “you should listen to your friends more often.. they’re looking out for you.”

Up until about 3 years ago I had been brutally shy for pretty much my entire life. I also was depressed and in a very dark place. I was in a very toxic relationship for 4.5 years. It started out great but eventually got very, very bad and I felt like I was stuck in a rut. I was scared to leave because I didn’t think anyone would ever want me or even find me attractive. In fact, I didn’t feel like I could leave because every time I tried he came running back promising change that never happened and of course I caved. I gave in every single time.. except the last time. It was November 2011, and enough was enough. There is only so much you can give with nothing in return before you lose your shit. And that is exactly what I did... I left and NEVER went back. My life changed drastically.. and in the end I became a strong, loving, outgoing, ridiculously weird and caring person. I grew so much and I love the person I am today. I am happy, and I see the brighter side of everything. Life is good :)

Anyways..I come from an awesome family who I love a lot. My mom is my best friend and is seriously amazing. I constantly hear that we look so much alike and I learned a lot from my mom growing up. It’s because of her that I am the person I am today. If I become half the woman she is I will feel truly blessed (Yeah I’m sitting here about to cry thinking about it... see the next paragraph ha.) She’s so supportive and awesome. All my friends think she’s the best too.. she’s just so funny! :) My dad and I are similar in ways even though I had never really admitted it until recently.  I find I get my positive attitude from him. I also find that I never stop smiling.. which I get from him. Me and my brother used to make fun of him for it when we were growing up and now I do it myself! Also, I tend to spend a lot of time with my grandparents who I call “Omi” and “Ota”. I used to spend every single weekend as a kid with them and can’t imagine my life without them. Sooo many memories! They’re the best people I know. Pete and I go over there every wednesday for dinner. It’s always fun :)

I tend to be a bit sentimental and sensitive. I cry at every wedding I attend.. including ones I see on TV with people I’ve never met (or will ever meet). My boyfriend likes to make fun of me because I cried at an dog food commercial. I also cried once watching an old woman fall on ice.  I sometimes even cry thinking of my friends and family members and how much I love them. Yep.. maybe just a tad bit wimpy haha.

As I mentioned before, I love music.. a lot. It’s always been a big part of my life and I feel like I’ve gone through stages where I’ve been very into every single genre. Right now I’m really digging indie folk but could listen to anything. I’m also part of a band with a few coworkers. We call ourselves “Bog Ferret”. I may not love the name but I don’t think it will ever change lol. We practice once a week and I love singing my heart out. It’s a great way to destress and let it all out!


I LOOVE to cook! It's probably one of my favourite past times! I like being creative and trying new things.. you'll probably see a few recipe reviews or ideals over the upcoming months :)
I’m a shoppaholic. It’s my favourite past time.. haha. I could spend hours in a store (which I do everytime I go to winners). Jenn and I used to frequent winners quite often and we used to call ourselves “Power Shoppers”. We are pretty hard core.

I’m a huge football fan! Go Steelers! I’ve got a ton of gear and truly enjoy spending Sundays dedicating myself to watching as many games as possible. Maybe it’s my silent excuse for being lazy and I just can’t admit it. LoL! I doubt it!

Anyways, I hope you’ve learned something new about me!

If not.. you can always ask me anything. Like I said, I am ALWAYS here for you :)

Thanks for reading!


Steph
