Honestly, "You are so weird. I love you." is a common statement for me to hear from my friends. It's not like I try to hide it. I've embraced the weirdness, the awkwardness, and the overall craziness that is called Meg. #YOLO ;)
// I like to go into Target and put on superhero masks //
1 | Sometimes I talk like Marcel the shell. My best friend pointed it out once. It's just a word or a phrase where I catch Marcel's monotone, croaky snail voice.
2 | I am a complete nerd. I love shows like Doctor Who, Sherlock, and Merlin. BBC for the win! And I heart all things Narnia, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. Nerds unite! ;)
3 | I like eating goldfish and m&ms together for a snack. Some people are super grossed out by that, but it's the perfect sweet & salty mix!! So don't be hatin'.
4 | I only wash my hair twice a week. This just got real, y'all. My hair doesn't get dirty/show dirt very quickly. Plus, it takes too much time to fix, so less is better in this case. Please still be my friend?
5 | I turn into a 2 year old after 9pm. It just happens. The day is coming to a close and I turn into a hyper/exhausted toddler. It's about as crazy as I get in life.
6 | I am 26 years old and still terrified of the dark. When I'm coming home late at night and have to turn off the basement lights before heading upstairs, I flip the switch off and bolt up the stairs as fast as possible. The burglar that has obviously been waiting in my house for HOURS could get me!
7 | Speaking of being terrified, I'm also still scared of someone hiding under my bed or in my closet. I blame this on my brother and my mom growing up. My mom LOVES scaring people. After she and my dad got married, my mom would hide in tiny corners of their apartment and scare the living daylights out of my dad when he came home from work (he's super jumpy.) He finally had to ask her to stop...so when they had kids, my mom passed the scaring jobs off to my brother and myself. I can't tell you how many times my brother hid under my bed and would reach out and grab my foot as I was about to hop under the covers. Seriously traumatizing. I've been in therapy for years...
8 | I laugh at the most inappropriate times. I think laughter is my coping mechanism. A friend told me once that it's how I mask my pain, which is pretty accurate. But I almost always laugh in awkward situations and sad ones...not because i'm not sympathetic...i'm actually very sympathetic, but sometimes my first reaction is to laugh because I don't know what else to do! Gosh, I'm so awkward.
9 | Sometimes I like to run up and down the Christmas aisles at Hobby Lobby while quoting lines from Elf. What? You don't do that? You have not lived.
10 | I wear my emotions on my face. I have been told that I have the greatest facial expressions of all time...and by greatest, I do not mean "cutest" or "most attractive." Think jennifer lawrence but way less adorable...hey, at least it's entertaining! ;)
Weeeeell, that's all you get for now! Can't be telling you all my weirdness at once or you may never come back! Muahahahaha.
SO WHAT ABOUT YOU? WHAT MAKES YOU WEIRD?
