I just jumped into writing that last blog, didn’t I? All you fine readers don’t even know who I am! Who am I to tell you about dreams and such when you don’t even KNOW me? So I will give you a small slice of Mikaila-pie so that you can experience the many flavors of my life. YUM. Let’s do this.
First up, we have the crust. If you know anything about pie, a pie is nothing without the firm-yet-flaky crust. Likewise, my friends and family are my crust. I have a mom, a dad – they’re awesome and I love them! But my very best friends in the whole entire world are my twin sister, Meg, and my golden retriever, Rosie. The following pictures make me so happy and are of my Rosie, my sister and I after our 10K and half marathons we ran this summer, and my family.
They make me who I am, shape me, and are also a little flaky. I love them to death and would do anything for them. Much like I would do anything for pie… I’m getting hungry. Let’s move on.
Next, we have the filling. Let’s go with Blueberry (that’s my favorite!). The filling gives the pie its identity. So if we’re putting this in terms of pie, what gives ME my identity? Well, God does now and always. He’s my number one. And because He is my number one, I want to serve Him in as many ways as I can (i.e. attending Pillar church, leading and participating in multiple Bible studies). I guess my identity also comes from what I aspire to be in life. What is that, you may ask? Career wise, I have no idea – whatever you can do with an English major I suppose…but what I aspire to be in life is a leader in whatever I do. Not just taking the easy way to do everything, but the right way. Whether I end up a writer or a fast food restaurant owner, I want to be that. That is my pie-dentity.
And last, but certainly not least, are the toppings of the pie. You know the ones. The whipped cream, ice cream….the add ons that give the pie that little something extra. And the things that are added on to me to give me my little something extra would be my hobbies. I LOVE HOPE. Hope is my hobby. I love going to all the soccer and basketball games, being a Gilmore Girl, and just hammocking around campus, enjoying the groovy weather while it lasts. I also love to play any kind of sport, soccer especially, and run when I can. Specifically, I’m training for a half marathon in the Spring – wow I’m scared just typing that! I love books, reading and Pinterest, and most importantly, I love food. I’ve got a sweet tooth that I never ignore (maybe that’s why this post is about pie…?)
And that’s all. Hopefully you’ve learned a little about pie, and a little about me and how much I like it. It’s a good thing Phelps always has it for dessert.
Until next time, all.
