10 Characteristics All Geminis Have

10 Characteristics All Geminis Have

What does your zodiac sign say about your personality?

If you were born between May 21 and June 21 (though these dates can vary, depending on what source you're referring to!), your zodiac sign is Gemini. Whether you think zodiac signs are dumb or if you’re obsessed with them, it’s always interesting to find out what personality traits set you apart from others. If you're a Gemini, read on to find out what's true about your personality just going off of your zodiac sign:

1. Boredom is your worst enemy

Geminis have a knack for communication and love to have their mind stimulated… so, needless to say, a typical Gemini probably has trouble paying attention during a lecture or starts to feel restless quite quickly if caught in a mundane situation.

2. Observation is your second nature

You see what’s in front of you, but you’re also able to read between the lines. Geminis are widely recognized for their adaptability, which is only possible by having a keen sense of observation. Geminis are able to pick up on the body language and moods of others more effectively than most people.

3. You are known to be chatty

Whether you like talking to large groups of people or tend to tell long stories to only your close friends, Geminis like to talk. This ties back to their need for communication and self-expression.

4. Practically isn’t your strong suit

It can be difficult to try to be practical for a Gemini, due to the fact that they tend to be a bit superficial and gravitate towards material items and labels. It may be hard for any Gemini to get through Target with only buying the items on their shopping list or to justify saving up their money instead of spending it on an impulse buy.

5. You enjoy creativity

Geminis possess minds that are constantly racing from thought to thought. This means that a Gemini would thrive on a career path where the tasks and objectives are constantly changing.

6. You tend to be indecisive

Do you have the reputation as that person who can never make up their mind? You can thank your status as a Gemini for that. Whether it's choosing which brand of toothpaste to buy, which restaurant to go to for dinner, or what to major in for college, you have trouble with making decisions both big and small.

7. You possess a great deal of enthusiasm

Geminis get excited about many things, and they aren't afraid to show it. If you have a big vacation planned, you aren't afraid to gush about how much you are looking forward to it. If you and your friends are enjoying a fun day together, your happiness can't be hidden. Your enthusiasm tends to be infectious and rubs off on others.

8. Independence comes naturally to you

Some people might be afraid of facing the world alone, but not you. Though you appreciate your support system, you would rather try to do things yourself rather than have to rely on others. Having a strong sense of independence also means that you don't hesitate in doing what you think is right, despite what an authority figure might want.

9. Anxiety is an old friend of yours

Geminis are interested in a wide range of topics, causes, and projects. This means that you take on a lot in everyday life - maybe even too much sometimes. Though you try your best to juggle everything, having too much on your plate can lead to a great deal of anxiety.

10. You’ve had a couple identity crises

Perhaps the most obvious Gemini trait is that fact that you possess a dual nature. The sign for Gemini, after all, is the twins. This means that you can be known to be both serious and silly, confident and awkward, loud and quiet, cold and warm … this list could go on.

Though Geminis do possess many other traits, these are the ones that are the most central to the Gemini personality. Geminis will always be best known for their strong communication skills, need for self-expression, adaptability, and dual nature. If you're a Gemini, you should be proud - not every sign has such a wide range of characteristics.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

If I Could Dream A Perfect Day, This Is What I'd Do

An inside look at what my dream day would be like.


Have you ever just had such a crappy day that you find yourself lying in bed daydreaming about what your perfect day would be like? No limitations, no pain, no frustrations. Just whatever you want.

Well, I have. Here is a look at what my perfect day would contain.

1. Teleportation


I know, I know. The first thing on my list is something that could absolutely never happen, at least in my lifetime. But hear me out.

I want to travel, but any form of transportation makes me sick. Cars, boats, planes, trains, you name it I end getting sick. So if I could teleport than I wouldn't have to deal with it. Plus I wouldn't have to pay for gas or airfare. It's a win-win.

2. My Mom

It wouldn't be a perfect day if my mom wasn't along for the ride. Who else would I have fun with and then rub it in my brothers face later?

Just kidding, he would come too.

3. Food


It would not be a prefect day if it didn't involve food. And if it was free it would be even better.

4. London


I have been dying to go back to London, and if it was my perfect day I would definitely take a trip over the pond!

5. Meet the Stars


If it was going to be my perfect day, I would meet some celebrities. Let me scream, and jump, and totally fangirl in front of Emma Watson, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Hemsworth, Zac Efron, and Robert Downey Jr. just to name a few.

6. Meet Fictional Characters


Earlier I said no limitations, so that means I get to meet fictional characters such as the Mikaelson family, the Golden Trio, Sirius Black, the Avengers, the Joker (he wouldn't kill me), and Hannibal Lecter (he also wouldn't kill me) to name a few.

7. Disney World


Bring on the magic! I want to go to Disney World and not have to wait in any lines. That would be a perfect day.

8. Learn a New Language


If I could learn how to speak French or German in a day that would be amazing.

9. Queen Concert


If I could close out the day by traveling back in time to see a Queen concert with Freddie Mercury back on stage that would be the perfect end to the perfect day.

10. Happiness

If everyone that I love was completely happy, with no stresses holding them down, for just one day that would definitely be a part of my perfect day.
