That being said, my name is Brianna. I'm a proud Canadian-American who is opinionated, passionate, honest to the point of being blunt, loyal till the end for my friends, and terrible at spelling (thank God for spell check!).
Well sort of... it just seems a bit conceited to me to list off the things you are good at. Besides isn't good a relative term?
After that lovely disclaimer, I will admit I like doing the following things, so I hope that after all the time I've spent on them I'm "good" at them.
Swimming (well maybe not so much anymore... it's been a while since I've been in a pool.)
Political Debates, particularly making an argument so utterly absurd and ridiculous its not even an argument just an exercise in futility only by using technicalities. It's both an art that requires a great deal of practice and the only benefit I've managed to find to a politics degree :P
Ok so I have an admission to make.
*glances around shiftily and leans in close to whisper*
I don't watch TV.
Blasphemy, I know, but there you have it. My roomie and I are actually cancelling the cable this month. We had it, we never really use it. So yeah, we would rather have the money for something else. That's not to say I mind TV, just that I'm easily distracted by it. Now while all of that is true, I'm totally a sucker for a Blackhawks game.
While I do get teased at work that I live under a cultural rock for not watching TV, I do like to go out to the movies. If I've got a few minutes I'm generally watching a trailer or looking at a clip on youtube. I like most genres of film but I tend to stay away from horror. Horror films end up being either too scary (I stay awake and can't sleep. Not good for a girl who loves her sleep) or so cheesy I feel like it was a waste of time. As for favourites, well I'm a Disney/Pixar fan but beyond that it's always changing. Some movies in the past that I've enjoyed: How to Train Your Dragon, The Dark Knight, Star Trek, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit, Memoirs of a Geisha, Transformers and 27 dresses.
As for food I don't think I've ever met anyone with a bigger sweet tooth than mine. I like to say my favourite food is dessert, if it's sweet chances are I'll like it! I'm always whipping up something in the kitchen (just ask my coworkers). It could be anything from a batch of cookies to a fancy french cake recipe to some interesting concoction I've found on pinterest. It's all fair game to me! The crazier it is the more likely I am to try and whip it up.
I'm willing to try making just about anything once so if you have a crazy complicated recipe or even just an old favorite shoot me the recipe!
Music: I listen mostly to top 40 but really it's what ever pops up on iheartraido or while I'm driving.It varies from day to day but lately I've been digging the country jams.
A good book
A few good friends to grab a bite/drink and a good chat with
*cue dramatic lighting*
Try and take over the world!
No but seriously friday nights could go a few different ways.
1) I'm got off work late thanks to my overachiever tendencies so I'm running to grab a late yoga class.
2) I'm out and about hanging with girlfriends/coworkers. We could be downtown grabbing dinner/drinks or chilling at one of our places.
3) Calling, texting or on facetime with friends/family. Seriously everyone is everywhere! Thanks to studying abroad I've got friends and family scattered all over.
4) I'm chillin like a villain reading something sappy sweet and totally romantic while whipping something up in the kitchen.
