Meet me, my name is Rochele, or Ro, I am @ALaRochele and formerly @GirlyGirlPotter on the Twitterverse.
I like long walks along the seawall, sushi, music, astronomy, dresses, makeup, nailpolish, coffee… I like a lot of things. It shapes who I am. I don’t have a lot of time for television, I regularly watch Parks and Recreation and Wonders of the Universe on Discovery Science, and lately Mad Men, but that’s about it. I don’t even know why I have cable, to be honest.
I am the world’s worst housekeeper. I won’t even pretend to try. I only clean when I have to. I organized my nail polish drawer once.
I’m at a transition point in my life. All the things I used to know and want in life have gone out the window. A couple years ago I decided to change my career path and last year I became a night student, and it’s made me rethink a lot of things and the direction that I was heading in life. I’m not sure what I want anymore, and it’s sent me into a tailspin. I JUST DON’T KNOW ANY MORE. *Cue an anxiety attack.* Also, I’m not dramatic at all…
I might be one of the nicest people that you’ll ever meet. That doesn’t mean that I don’t have my shitty moments and that I’ve never hurt anyone, but I am genuine in my interactions and I go out of my way to be a good person in the world. Until recently, I thought everyone operated this way. It turns out I was wrong. I don’t have time for people who compromise my standards.
One thing about me: I’m vain. So very vain. I have more clothes, shoes, bags, nail polish and makeup than any girl should. I’ll chalk it up to variety being the spice of life. I dream of hosting “Ro’s Favourite Things” like Oprah does. You’d all get a pair of TOMS and $18 lip balm. I’ve challenged myself to wear every item in my wardrobe this year. If I can’t bring myself to wear it, then it gets donated. For the first time in a decade there is room for someone else’s things in the closet(s). I’m vain, not selfish. Geez.
