O mangiar questa minestra o saltar questa fine is an Italian proverb which means, literally, either eat this soup or jump out of this window. In other words, “take it or leave it.” I’ve spent way too long hoping and wishing for things to change, but in the past few years I realized hey, things are pretty great. Take it or leave it, ’cause this is what you’ve got.
♥ Female. 28. Seattle, WA.
♥ Yes, it does rain that much. And yes, I hate the weather here.
♥ I’m a recruiter by day. I try not to write about my job itself, but keep an eye out for career/job-hunting advice posts every so often. Sometimes I just can’t help myself.
♥ I have the BRCA2 genetic mutation, giving me a risk of someday developing cancer that is, well, frighteningly high.
♥So I had a preventative mastectomy on November 7th, 2012 (yes, before Angelina). That’s been an adventure.
♥ I’m quite small. As in, only 5’1.5″… yes, the half inch is important
♥ I never round up to 5’2″. I’d sooner round down to 5’1″. I like being short.
♥ I was born & raised in the Midwest – Ohio, to be exact. I moved to the West coast when I was twelve and I’d never go back permanently.
♥ My boyfriend and my best friend (since 1997!) are first cousins.
♥ I lived in Rome, Italy for a few months in college. Best thing I ever did, hands down.
♥ I was born on Memorial Day.
♥ I screamed nonstop for the first six or so months of life. Not much has changed!
♥ You can find me on Twitter and 20SB.
♥ I’ve been blogging in one way or another since 1998.
♥ I’m a member of Junior League & I also volunteer with a FORCE.
