If you and I were to sit down and have coffee this morning, I’d totally order a PSL, because I’m basic like that and love pumpkin spice anything.
Other basic things about me: I love Britney Spears (always have always will). My closet is full of jeggings. Gilmore Girls is my favorite TV show ever. I drive a gray SUV. I’d make pretty much the worst hipster ever—I’m so mainstream. But you knew that about me, because we’re friends. And you like the same things I do. Gosh, you are just my favorite (well, right behind Britney and Lorelai, that is).
The first thing I’d do when I sat down is yawn. You aren’t boring, I promise. You’re actually super interesting and pretty and intelligent and delightful. It’s just that I’ve been getting up at 5am each morning to try to get a few uninterrupted hours of work in before the rest of the house wakes up. It’s been great for my business, but my body still is like “WTF. 5AM.” (even though I go to bed much earlier to compensate). If I could control the yawns, I would. Don’t blame me!
I’d ask you how work was going, and you’d tell me all about the super cool things you are doing at your job. You’re such an inspiration to me! I love hearing about other boss babes. Women who are kicking ass in their chosen life (no matter if that’s career, family, alpaca farming) give me such hope for my kid’s generation.
I know they always told us that we could be anything we wanted to be when we were growing up, but I feel like Juniper’s generation is maybe the first time that’s actually true. And awesome women like you are why. So thanks for that.
You’d then ask me about my job, and I’d tell you that I am so insanely happy in my career. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled into this weird, random, and totally crazy occupation that is just such a good fit for my skillset, personality, and lifestyle and actually pays my bills. I’d tell you that I’m thinking of starting a mentorship program because I want to help other people rock this awesome career. This is just too darn good to keep to myself.
