6 Tings

My darling Casey tagged me in this post and I haven't done a Liebster in a while and since I have so many new faces around here it's kind of perfect timing!
1. If you could pick up and move anywhere for 6 months, where would it be?
Part of me wants to pick Dallas. But that's because I want to live there for a year or two anyway. We have friends there plus all the awesome bloggers (ready to be IRLBFF Helene and Sarah?) and part of me wants to pick New Orleans because, well, it sounds amazing. But if money was no object and I could do anything while living for those 6 months, I'd have to pick Italy. I've had so many friends go who are obsessed and it's so close to everything else in Europe, I would cheat and visit everywhere!
last time we were in Dallas, and our hosts aka 2 of my favorite people!
2. How long have you known your best friend?
Since 6th grade. Although in 8th grade she hated me. Not that I had any idea. I was annoying but honestly so was she. Whatever. We've been friends for about 14 years now. Crayyy. I don't know what I would do without her. She's moving to Boston eventually and it's gonna break my heart.
basically soul mates
3. What's your number one item on your Christmas list this year? Come on you know you've been thinking!
A new computer. (I spilled wine on Tom's computer about 6 months ago..) A Mac would be fantasticccc. But it's quite a big ticket item. Anyone wanna chip in?

4. What accomplishment are you're most proud of?
Well it's gonna sound ridiculous. I think I'm most proud that I am a funtional, mature, mostly normal adult. My family is a  m e s s  and even though they are great people, I'm very different than them. Thanks to my friends, my uncle (who's also my god father- good pick) and honestly even my past relationships, and of course Tom and his family, I've learned so much about being the person I should be. I'm still me without being a constant bitch, nag or brat. I mean I'm all of those sometimes but I'm a fully functioning adult and for a while, I didn't know if I would get there!

5. What did you do last Friday night?
We went to sushi din. Where I had shitty wine and free shots. Then Tom and I stayed in and drank wine and played the Lego Star Wars video game while trying to keep Lil happy. Pretty typical Friday night.

6. How has blogging benefited your life?
A few ways: I've "met" some ahhhmazing people and I get to hang out with a bunch of them IRL very soon! It's also been an incredible outlet for me. It's helped my intense outgoing personality mesh with my serious homebody-ness SO much easier. I actually like writing and being creative and this has been my favorite place to do that. It also holds me somewhat accountable to what I want to/should be doing. And one of the biggest, unexpected benefits has been learning HTML and graphic design. I can't believe I know about coding and photoshop as much as I do. I've even designed a few blogs! CRAY GUYS. (shameless plug, if you're interested in a design let me know acosta0097@gmail.com) I'm working on a design site so be on the look out!

TAG, you're it! 

Also, I think there are 2 versions of this going around- 1 that uses the same questions over and over and one that gives each new round new questions. Since I'm unoriginal, and like the questions that keep being repeated I will be using those. Sue me.
