With a Little Help From My Friends

Asking for help is not something I do well. Too often, I throw on my superhero cape and attempt to do it all. Inevitably, sometime gets lost in the shuffle because while I can do it all, I cannot do it all well. Sometimes you need to lay down your cape, give the superhero thing a break and ask for help.

Why is it so hard to ask for help? For me, I feel like I am burdening people when I ask for help or advice. Now, if you ask my family and friends, I’m constantly chatting about problems I need to figure out. So, it may seem like I am totally comfortable venting to my support system. On the contrary, I do actually think about the problem I have and who would be best suited to shed some light on it. I go to different people when I have different problems and try (I’m not always successful here) to share the wealth and not lay all my problems and ramblings on one person.

ProAsking for help at work is a completely different ballgame that took me a while to get used to. The same principles listed above apply while at work. If you feel overwhelmed and need help with your assignments, speak up. With too much on your plate, you won’t be able to dedicate the right amount of time to projects, ultimately resulting in sub-par work. Always try to find information out on your own but don’t be afraid to ask for help. Remember, everyone started someone.

Now for the real reason for this post…

Remember how I said I’m not good at asking for help? Well, after hours of over-thinking and pacing, I am asking you for help. As the readers of this blog, you are familiar with the content I post, times of day I post and my writing style. I need to know what you like, hate, recommend and want more of. So please, please, please, comment below with your feedback, email me privately, send it by carrier pigeon; it doesn’t matter! I have some ideas I want to try out on the blog and need your feedback to make Rockstar in Training even better. 

I am totally open to constructive feedback because I know there’s always room for improvement. If you’re not comfortable posting in the comments section, feel free to email me through the contact page above. Thanks in advance!

Liebster Award

Yesterday morning, I received a notification that my new friend and fellow blogger, Christine from {Rules for} the Modern Girl nominated my blog for a Liebster Award. After doing some research, it seems there’s no criteria or official nomination process. But rather it’s an award given to fellow bloggers and passed along. I think it’s an awesome way to show your fellow bloggers love and for everyone to learn more about you. You must complete these 5 items when given the award:

liebster1. Share 11 things about yourself
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you
3. Choose 5 fellow bloggers to nominate
4. Think of 11 questions to ask the bloggers you have decided to nominate.
5. Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog.

11 Things about Me

1. I am 100 percent Italian and way too proud of it.

3. I’ve known my best friend for 17 years.

4. I was a cheerleader for 13 years and absolutely loved it.

5. I’m terrified of snakes.

6. I have 11 first cousins.

7. My first concert was the Spice Girls.

8. I’ve worn my LiveStrong band since 2004 and refuse to take it off.

9. I had perfect attendance in high school.

10. I was speaking in full sentences by 18 months old.

11. I refuse to eat ketchup, mustard or mayo.

Christine’s 11 Questions for Me:

1) If you could meet anyone, who would it be?

My grandfather (my mom’s dad). He passed away before I was born.

2) What is your favorite song to sing in the shower?

That’s a hard one! Ain’t No Mountain High Enough never fails.

3) If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Las Vegas with my best friends.

4) What is your most prized possession?

As silly as it sounds, a Dalmatian stuffed animal. I’ve had him since I was born.

5) What is your favorite perfume or scent?

Love SJP NYC probably because I’m obsessed with Sarah Jessica Parker.

6) When you were a little kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

At age 3, I wanted to be a hairdresser and marry Tellie Monster from Sesame Street. In grade school, a doctor then in high school, a writer.

7) High heels or flats?  And why?

Anyone who’s gone out with me knows flats. I’m just not comfortable in heels. I need to learn how to walk and dance better in them!

8) When the Olympics were on last summer, what was your favorite event to watch?

Hands down, gymnastics!

9) If you had $500 to spend on anything what would you buy?

$500 couldn’t get me an apartment, right? New spring clothes and shoes.

10) What are your ideal New Year’s Eve plans?

Dancing and popping champagne with my best friends.

11) Who writes your favorite blog?

It’s hard to pick a favorite! At the moment, I’m obsessed with my friend Brianna’s blog, C’est la vie. She is documenting her study abroad experience in Paris. I feel like I am there with her!
