Are you high maintenance? Am I high maintenance?
I was pondering this thought while in the shower the other morning. Don't ask me why, but I do some of my best blogging in the shower. I should look into a waterproof laptop or something, but then I might never get out...except for when the water turned cold. Perhaps I need to look into a bigger hot water tank? Isaiah is always looking for things to invent. I'll let him know about this asap.
Back to the topic. High maintenance. Are you? I think sometimes I am and sometimes I'm not. On one hand, I love a mani/pedi and I pay someone to wax my eyebrows, but on the other hand, I color my hair out of a box and my aunt cuts my hair for free. I love Coach purses, but feel totally comfortable wearing things from Target. On most days, my purse probably costs more than my entire outfit...including my shoes. I do drink Starbucks like no body's biznass and I make no apologies for it.
So, what makes someone high maintenance?
For this question, I went to Google, my trusty friend in times of need. According to most of the articles I read, guys consider girls "high maintenance" when they always have to put make-up on and primp.
Well, this sealed the deal for me. I just want all of you to know that I am officially LOW maintenance. One thing I do not do is spend a lot of time applying make-up or primping.
My morning routine is: wake up, lay in bed for 20 minutes checking Twitter/Facebook/Blogger, roll out, turn the coffee pot on, turn the laptop on, read a few more blogs, wake Isaiah up, make him breakfast, get him dressed, cue the cartoons, take a shower...and then in the 15 minutes I have left I dress, dry my hair, and MAYBE...on a good day, put on some powder, mascara, and lip gloss. On a good day.
Keeping it real people...
this is what I look like today, sitting at my desk on my lunch hour...apparently, it wasn't a "good day". It is the unPhotoshopped, unPicniked, and unedited version. That's what you would get if you came here right now.
It's OK if we're not friends anymore. I understand.
Disclaimer: If you EVER see a picture on this blog and my skin looks flawless or my face looks *achem* thinner, you can bet the farm that I've used Photoshop or Picnik. So, please know that if you ever meet me in person, I will not look like that. You can do wonders with a good camera angle, favorable lighting, and a little airbrush and Insta-thin on Picnik.
So, are you high maintenance? Low maintenance? Somewhere in between?
