“You take forever, ever, ever, ever / But you’re always worth waiting for / You take forever, ever, ever, ever / I guess I’ll wait a little more / Now I know it’s time I realize I’ll be waiting half my life, yeah / With my back up against the door / Cuz you take forever, ever, ever, ever, ever ever ever / But you’re always worth waiting for”
I have to listen to music when I’m writing blog posts or editing photos, and I’ve recently been switching between the new Death Cab for Cutie album and Andy Grammer’s Magazines or Novels album. One of the songs off of Andy’s album is called “Forever” (see lyrics above), and it’s about a girl who takes all the time in the world to get ready. It got me thinking about how I’m one of those people who doesn’t take forever to get ready.
I wake up at 5:45am (ugh, writing it out makes it look really bad), and I take about 15 minutes getting ready. This includes putting my contacts in, applying makeup, getting my outfit ready/on, and coaxing Cooper out of bed so he can go outside.
It probably helps that my makeup routine is minimal (and that I’m in love with my products currently), and I usually have an outfit laid out the night before. Plus, I really enjoy my 30 minutes of coffee/me-time before leaving for work, so who wants eyeshadow cutting into those precious minutes?
But I definitely know some ladies (and a few gentlemen) that take FOREVER to get ready. It’s more of an event for them (some complete with playlists), and they usually enjoy the time playing with makeup or outfit options. Which is great too!
So I wanted to know more about you, dear friends, are you an-in-and-out individual or do you like to take your time when getting ready?
