Friday Five - New Year, Same Me

Happy Friday! What at week it was has been!! I do not even know how to begin this, I have been working from home for 4 days, 1 because of weather, 2 because of a water issue in our building and 1 because I need to catch up with the work missed... even thought I was already working! I am so happy it's Friday! 

I'm Linking up with the Friday five 2.0 ladies at Fairytales and Fitness and Running on Happy .

With the start of the New Year, I keep seeing the "New Year, New Me" post on social media, and I keep thinking to myself, New Year same old me, because I very much like Same Old Me! Here are 5 things that are the same for me as they were last year... and many years prior. 

1. I am always caffeinated. Somedays over caffeinated  other days under caffeinated,  but always with coffee running through me. Especially now. I had a latte a little too late in the afternoon, and now I can't go to sleep. My computer is reminding me that I will be waking up in 7 hours. 

2. I don't know how to arrive on time. I try. I try everyday to be on time for things, but my brain barely ever computes the term of "on time". Unless it's a race, for that I'll show up 1 hour before the start.

3. I am made of tacos and burritos- The Word diet only exist on my vocabulary when it comes to keeping my money on a diet... and even then, that money diet goes out the window when it comes to tacos. LOVE all the TACOS!

4. Singing off key in the car, around home and while running - Earlier today I was working on some reports at home, and listening to music to keep me focused, and naturally I started singing loudly off-key, it made me so happy and lifted my mood. 

5. I will wear black for as long as it makes me happy - My mom has been begging me for years... about 25 years ... to wear more colors, she even buys me clothes in bright colors. Many people who have worked with me have told me what other colors would look good on me, some have even gifted me colors on bright colors. But wearing black is the color that makes me happy, the color that makes me feel confident. 

New Year, same old you... what is staying the same in your life? 

What is your favorite color to wear? 

Are you good at arriving on time ? 


  1. I'm glad you're the same old you because I like that you! :)
    Is leggings a color? My favorite color to wear is leggings.
    Yes, I am good arriving on time because I do get annoyed when I am meeting someone and they are let, unless they text me and let me know. Because sometimes I rush rush rush to get somewhere in time only to sit there waiting for 15 minutes and it's like... why did I rush?

  2. I love to wear bright colored workout clothes they just make me happy. I am more of a new year better me. Have a great weekend!

  3. Well, I'm all about color (shocked?) ;-) . Black is such a timeless, classy color, though. You simply cannot go wrong with it.

  4. Haha! I love it! Yes, New Year, same old me. Hmmm...still complaining about my job, loving my InknBurn because the fun patterns make me smile, caffeine yes please, tacos, burritos, and chocolate. Great post!

  5. Such a good point that you don't need to change things about yourself just because its a new year! I also always have caffeine running through me. I cant start my day without a cup of coffee!

  6. I agree with you. I am always caffeinated. Can't function without my coffee in the mornings.
