Top 5 Ways I Keep It Real

1- Handwritten notes. While it may be prehistoric, my love of stationary requires that I keep up this tradition. Don’t worry though, I still send the obligatory “Happy Birthday” post online.

2- Cowboy boots. No, not the silly little $30 ones from TJ Maxx. Real, live boots…worn with real, live jeans. The kind that have clocked the same amount of hours in the fields as they have on city streets.

3- The ‘Zuk. I’ve had the same car since my senior year of high school. She’s small, has great gas mileage, and above all, doesn’t require any car payments. We’ve been together for 10 years now and I love her dearly.

4- Music. My tastes have not drastically changed since 1996. My typical Pandora rotation goes a little something like this: Tom Petty, Travis Tritt, Rod Stewart, Prince, Billy Joel, Garth Brooks.

5- Public Transit. Nothing more real than that.

Top 5 Things That Make Me Feel 18 Again

1- Pita Pit. As one of the few establishments that stayed open late night if my college town, I have fond memories of many a scene made/pita devoured in this little spot.

2- 50 Cent. Just one, “lil mama show you how you move it” and I’m time-warped to VIP entrances, clubs, and lycra halter tops.

3- Ribbon belts, flip flops, and watches. What? You don’t consider that the epitome of style? What’s wrong with you?!

4- Pointless driving. I feel like a solid portion of my late teenage years was spent wasting gasoline with friends for no apparent reason…or for fairly pointless reasons (i.e. stalking crushes who didn’t even know we existed).

5- Dirty, trashed, and fratastic (multi) million-dollar homes from the 1800s. #charlestonproblems
