Yup, you read that right. I’m a whole quarter of a century old.
As we were sitting and reminiscing my brother Karl asked me if I had any words of wisdom that I had learned in my 24th year. That’s an easy one:
Losing a parent sucks.
My 24th year was plagued with the death of my father and as the anniversary of his death is approaching I can’t help but think of how much I was forced to grow up this past year.
That’s another blog post for another day. Today’s blog post was sparked from that conversatio with Karl: I’m going to answer a birthday interview! Yes, I’m pretty sure these are intended for children but I don’t really care, I’m going to answer it anyway!
What’s your name: Kalissa Georgia Friedman
How old are you: 25
What’s your favorite thing to do: Take naps and clean house and watch the boys play outside
What do you want to be when you grow up? A flight nurse or a graphic designer or a keynote speaker.
What is your favorite food? I love all food but if I HAD to pick, I love Mexican food and breakfast food.
What do you do really well? Fake it till you make it. If someone told me I had to give a 5 minute speech about iguanas in front of a crowd of 100 people in 2 minutes I could probably figure it out. Improv is my jam.
What makes you laugh: My boys
What is the best time of day? Alone time
What are you afraid of? Snakes. Mice. Other people’s negative opinions of me.
Who is your best friend? I have several. Regan is my girlfriend. My mom is my best friend. My sisters are my sisters. Craig is my soulmate. My brother Karl is a good friend. I’ve got some pretty awesome coworkers who are my work friends.
What do you like to do with your family? Go to Wisconsin Dells and supper at my moms 🙂
What do you love to learn about? The mechanism of action of drugs/medications on the body. How they work, why they work, what action it takes to create the desired outcome.
Where do you like to go? Home. To bed.
What is your favorite book? Currently: Chasing Cupcakes by Elizabeth Benton. Of all time: The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey.
If you had one wish what would it be? To have more wishes. It would be selfish to only use one wish on myself. There is so much this world needs right now. I need more wishes so I don’t feel guilty wasting that wish on myself. But let’s say the wishes have to be used on me, I wish for a healthy body weight, the ability to maintain it, and to be debt free.
What advice would you give your younger self: Don’t be afraid to wipe the slate clean and completely start from scratch.
My favorite thing about myself: I’m not afraid to try anything and my blue eyes from my dad.
That’s all I have for today! I’m spending the day with Craig, we are going BIKE SHOPPING! We are quickly outgrowing our garage sale bikes we got a few years ago and we just love riding around town! We have a ton of bike trails in NEIA and are excited that we can all ride bikes as a family!
