about ME!

about me. does anyone know much about me here? besides the obvious stuff i post about. i don't really give any details or anything. i guess maybe i can talk about myself and tell you guys who i am and what i do. even tho a lot of you already know who i am - i'm cassie. lets start somewhere..

well. hi all - friends and strangers. lurkers and creepers. family - (hi mom!). lokes & jokes. welcome to my blogosphere. most people don't know much about me. i tend to keep it to myself besides what i spill out onto my blog from time to time. i can start with the basics and then get into the complicated parts then stumble awkwardly into some random tidbits. it'll be a fun adventure. i promise.

*um. first. i am 20. only 20. pretty young, when i feel so old. i am 5'2. 98 lbs. pretty dang healthy mind you besides my diet of strictly cookies and anything sweet... ahem.
*i am a full time student with a major in Bio-Science.
*i am a photographers assistant & i love my job. i work for a local photographer lisa richmond. not only do i do things behind the camera but i also do quite a bit in front of the camera -
*i model. yes a 5'2 girl can model believe it. i come across tall in photos i suppose.
*i live in one of the most beautiful places on earth: California. i live in the northern part of california & i'm right between South Lake Tahoe & Sacramento actually i live where gold was discovered!
* i live at home with my parents again.. i don't mind it. i love my family and hey .. having dinner ready on the table every night.. not so bad either.
* i lived in utah for 7 months in 2008. Salt Lake City. it was an experience, i had a lot of fun. it made me want to live in many different places, so i plan on doing so.
* i have a seriously bad case of wanderlust. as much as i am a homebody i am constantly itching to move around and see things and travel to places.
*i love to drive. people love me to drive. i am a great driver. this i imagine ties into my wanderlust. [moving.. traveling.. you get the idea]
* i have a '98 subaru outback that i bought myself. its my baby and i love it. however i do want a brand new subaru outback.. but shh do not tell my car or it will probably die on me. again.
* i'm quite simplistic. i don't need much to be happy. i don't need the latest trends or the newest things to be fine with life. as long as what i have works and doesn't fall apart i'm good.
* i am an organizational clean freak. with MY things. i don't care if your stuff is a mess but when it comes to me - watch out.
* i am very fond of miniature things. tiny sea shells, little buttons, beans, little boxes. it might be a complex that has to do with my height.
* which brings me to say that regardless of my height i am not one to be messed with. i can have a bad attitude and i am very quick with comebacks and witty remarks. it takes a ton to make me cry [or it can take one silly little thing..]
* i am afraid of nothing. literally. nothing scares me. some things can surprise me or make me uncomfortable. but i'm never scared.
* said things that make me uncomfortable : thunder, water towers, long nails on boys & food that might be spicy.
* i am always right. i am a sore loser. & i admit when i'm wrong (which is. like. never... ahem)
* i've only had one serious boyfriend in my life and yikes.. i was stupid.
* my favorite color is turquoise, but really i love all colors and can't pick a true favorite.
* i like to wear black. it doesnt mean i am gothic. it just looks good.
* my eyes are quite green. but come across other colors all the time. they are always green tho.
* i get compliments on my teeth A LOT.
* i am a bio-science major like i mentioned. i plan to become a naturopathic doctor. as well as.. get ready for this.. a cranalsacral therapist, an orthobionomist, a master herbologist and a massage therapist. voila!
* oh yeah, i am french. born in france. i have duel citizenship. my dad is french. my brother was french ..
* but he joined the army and had to renounce his citizenship with france. so now he's just american. his name is zac and hes my best friend. he is 22 & is currently in afghanistan in the army intelligence. i've said too much already... kidding.
* i can't speak fluent because we moved here when i was little & life got too busy with a family of 6 too teach all of the kids both languages. bummer for me.. i already know.
* i have 2 brothers and one sister. zac the oldest, me the second, miranda who is 15 and brogan who is 12. i have two fake brothers named brent who is 22 & alex who is 15. brent is my brothers best friend since i was tiny & alex is my sisters best friend since birth. i treat them as i would my blood siblings... you know how that goes.
* i am an "aroma therapy girl" as my mom calls me. it means i am all about the smells. i feel that the right smell can ease some ones life. candles and insense are essential. even goods being baked in the kitchen are necessary... invest in my belief of smells being a cure. spend some time on it. my favorites are vanilla (who doesnt love vanilla) and my all time favorite candle napa valley harvest.
* i love all foods. except the following: artichokes, anything spicy [i mean anything, can't even be pepper], soda, onions & sea urchin. everything else .. bring it on at me. im ready
* i am not good at math. i want to be. so i'll tell myself i am. {but i'm not}
* i am a cold blooded creature.. i get cold really easy & snow is not my element. no no no. i like to look at snow but being in it is a leap. i am a warmth person. but i can handle snow i suppose. i just need the right gear. lots of it.
* i don't work out or eat that healthy. i try to eat good. i have very good self discipline. but exercise?... thats asking a bit much. just kidding, i wish i could run & bike & swim. but man thats hard to work up too.
* i get along really well with just about anyone. i'm just a very good genuine person. i suppose that's why. when asked do i get along better with girls or boys.. i can't answer i just get along. simple as that. with out any fakey or buttkissing involved.
* oh yeah, i don't put on a mask to please others. your gettin what you're seein. if you don't like it YOU can leave.. no one is keeping you here.
* i don't like people who complain... yet i am probably the biggest complainer. SORRY!
* i give great advice that always benefits people. i can dish it out but taking my own? yeah right.

* i love blogging. i love meeting new people. i love friends. i love people (most of the time) and i love to read and watch other peoples lives. they fascinate me. i'm not a creep.

* i'm a joker. i'm sarcastic. i like to make people laugh. i just like to be happy.. [doesn't mean i always am. i can be a downer and a whiner. sorry, again. ah]

* i like photographs & taking them. i own three old cameras. an olympus from the 80s, a dacoramatic .. super weird. & one that i can't remember the name of because my grandpa just gave it to me.

Bahaha!! I am suuuuuch an aroma therapy girl! I use lavender/chamomille to help me sleep. eucalyptus to help me de-stress. peppermint for my headaches...I could go on. I'm a weirdass.
But Vanilla is one of my favorite scents too :]

I don't know about you, but it's so hard for me to keep an incentive to exercise, because I'll look the same whether I do or don't. Haha, yay for skinny genes! Also, we should take a road trip! I loove venturing along the coast of California, it's beautiful. You should come to Sf with me this summer or something.

Colin Roe said...

chanelle said...
