My name is Joy.

I live in Maine.

I've never met an exclamation mark I didn't like.

Sometimes I host impromptu dance-offs in the middle of the street.

Things That Scare me About Living With my Boyfriend

  • How much I’ll miss my cat
  • How I’ll be able to find my own alone time when I need it
  • Being able to justify just having hummus for dinner when I just want hummus for dinner
  • The inability to hide when I just don’t want to wash the dishes. For days.
  • Being able to just stay on the couch for a Saturday without feeling guilt/judgement
  • Admitting to the fact that I’m 31-years-old and still prefer to sleep with the stuffed lion I received the Christmas of my sixth year
  • The inability to hide when I just can’t abide other humans
  • The concern that my boyfriend might get sick of me
  • That I’ll end up being one of those women who refers to activities and events as “we”

Things I am Scared my Boyfriend Will Learn About me When we Move in Together

  • The amount of nail polish I own
  • The amount of make up/skincare products I have (damn you, birchbox)
  • The amount of skincare products I use (ain’t nobody got time for crows feet) 
  • Just how long it takes me to unpack a suitcase
  • The sheer number of dresses in my possession (though Melanie is coming to Maine to help me emotionally rid myself of clothes I don’t need)
  • The number of scarves I own
  • How, when I am not with him, I will often just have hummus and cucumbers for dinner
  • How much I hate tofu
  • The number of CW shows I deeply love
  • The amount of money I can drop at Target without batting an eye
  • How susceptible I am to Kate Spade flash sales
  • The amount of hours I spend on Petfinder each day
Boyfriend and I are moving in together (ack!) which means this little lady needs to relocate to my parents’ house as he is allergic. I am… Not doing well with this.
