What I do when I am sick

Ok so when I thought I was getting over being sick I was really just still sick and didn’t know it. It was a pretty rough couple days but I think finally I am starting to feel like myself again. Running will resume in a couple days just trying to make sure I am 100% and don’t push it.

While being sick the Doctor (who I usually avoid at all costs) told me I just needed to rest and I would get better. I’m really not good at resting but I tried my best. I caught up on my DVR, watched multiple movies (Breaking Dawn, The Bourne Supremacy and Munich) and approximately 11 episodes of The Killing (Season 2 on Netflix). Totally hooked on that show, although it’s not better than The Americans.

I also created a new resume….It’s pretty much the real stuff that should be included in my “real life” resume but people just aren’t ready for this kind of honesty yet. Since we are being so honest, I have left out my real name and address to avoid stalkers

Moja Mala

Living life


  • Finder of all potholes in Cleveland. Actually, my car finds them not me.
  • Trash Talking. Mostly 12 yr olds while playing call of duty.
  • Pretending to be a 12 yr old when playing call of duty.
  • Time Management. I DVR 95% of the TV I watch and then fast forward through commercials. I also plan to watch DVR’d shows when the DVR is recording 2 shows at once.
  • Pinterest Pro. I know my Pins are valued by the number of repins I get. I’m probably in the top 10 of pinterest users. If you are not on Pinterest, you are wasting your life.
  • Patience. I spend 10 minutes every morning taming my crazy cowlick. It’s mixture of excessive blow-drying, smashing down with bobby pins and copious amounts of hairspray. Maybe this one should be listed under science.
  • The ability to spot someone’s look alike no matter where I go. My newest one is Nick Swisher’s look alike is Joey Lawrence. “WOAH!”.
  • Showering Daily. Well, I’m still working on that one. But I do blow dry the sweat out of my hair. Sometimes.
  • Kolo Dancing Pro. Trust me, this is a skill and not a hobby. 90% of my readers don’t know what this is but trust me, I’m good. Been a skilled kolo dancer since at least 4 years old.
  • Saving Money. I’ve had the same pair of glasses since 2002. Also my work pants are mostly from Express 2006. (maybe 2005). I really know how to make things last.
  • Being Creative. This one is kind of serious, you guys but I’m really good at making photo albums on Shutterfly. Also good at creating worthless typography-type designs in Microsoft Publisher. (maybe that part should be a hobby?)
  • Self Diagnosing. I’m pretty decent at googling my symptoms to figure out what is wrong. Saves me a lot of time and money since I don’t have to go to the doctor. Google is my doctor.
  • CPI Certified. You perhaps don’t know what that is but let’s just say you don’t want to mess with me. I’m pretty badass.
  • Baking. Essentially, this is another serious one. I’m actually a good baker. However, apparently you don’t become a millionaire by baking.
  • Traveling. Notice I did not say vacationing. I’m bad at relaxing. But making travel reservations, planning out schedules and itineraries. I’ve got that down.
  • Knowing 90% of the words to Salt n Pepper’s “Shoop”. I sing it in the car on my way to work. Pumps me up for my “real” job. Sometimes I do the boy part too.


  • Running for really no point other than I think it’s fun. Clearly, I need more hobbies.
  • Related, I’m really good at mapping out runs, making up workouts, talking about running and giving my opinion on every race. Hey! Who wants to talk about running!?!?!
  • Cuddling with puppies. Puppies love me, what more can I say.
  • Polished Painter. Yes, we are talking about nails here. Actually, I not very good at it since I paint my cuticles and sides of my finger. My 9 yr old sister says you shouldn’t do that. But I do keep polish on them most of the time. Chipping or not, my nails are painted.
  • Reading. Mostly teen fiction but it’s better than nothing.


Available upon request. However, the best reference is to meet me in person. OR stalk my facebook account.

So basically that’s what I accomplish when I am sick. What do you do when you are sick? What should be on your resume that isn’t?

  1. This seriously made me laugh out loud. I personally like the “if you are not on Pinterest you’re wasting your life.” Speaking of which I’m following you now haha 🙂

  2. Um, being able to make dinner out of 5 random things in my fridge or cupboard. Seriously, I would rock that show “Chopped” on Food Network. Also, memory of an elephant, except when it comes to movie actor’s names. Then, I can IMDB faster than anyone in the world. 🙂 Thanks for the laugh-hope you are feeling better soon!

  3. haha! Love it! I also think Pinterest is a skill, clearly you have thought a lot about this! And teen fiction does count, it’s all I can manage during the work year.
