Before I get into this post, I wanted to share some good news: I reached my 60 day mark here at my new job (I know!) and after a brief “You’re doing an excellent job!” convo with my boss, I got a significant raise! I’m one happy girl!
Now, on to the post! I thought I’d share some fun facts about myself with you all. I’m starting to feel like I get SO deep with my TSTs, which I like, but it starting to feel like a weekly visit to the therapist. So I wanted to just share some fun, silly things about me that you probably don’t know!
- When I was four I went to daycare and we had broccoli and cheese for lunch. One of the boys in my class stuck his finger in my broccoli and I refused to eat it. I haven’t liked broccoli since and up until maybe 5 or 6 years ago, refused to eat it.
- I have lived in Japan and Cuba, ages 2 and 23 respectively. I don’t remember parts from both countries due to youth and alcohol, respectively.
- I’m a member of Zeta Tau Alpha fraternity (sorority) and darn proud of it. I get all mama bear grr when people make fun of sororities and the women in them.
- For career day in elementary school I dressed up as a pediatrician (complete with baby doll), a banker, and a writer.
- We owned a bootleg copy of Peter Pan when I was little that we bought in Japan. I can quote almost the whole movie.
- I never watch it, but I LOVE watching soccer.
- In middle and high schools I played the flute, but in high school for marching band I played percussion. I was mediocre at both and although I loved band, I loved how much it got me out of class more.
- Speaking of band, my high school band was banned from Disney World for 4 years back in 1999 because a few people were caught shoplifting. My band story normally trumps everyone else’s band story.
- When I was a little girl my dad worked at a printing company. I’d go to work with him some days and he would let me use scrap printing supplies to make books. It’s one of my favorite memories of him.
- If I were to ever self publish anything it would be dedicated to my dad because of that.
So this has been fun! I sometimes feel that my life is pretty uninteresting because I don’t have any crazy wild stories to talk about. But when I think about these kinds of facts about my life I realize that I actually have had a pretty interesting life. Maybe there’s not tons of crazy wild stories (although I’m sure I could mention a few from my Cuba days), but I’m also not a very braggart “look at me” person (pshh… don’t believe that lie). 🙂
Oh, and as promised:
