Here are 10 random things you may or may not know about me
My boyfriend and I set up a dinner menu every week and only shop on Sundays. We were tired of playing the “What do you want for dinner?” game every night in the middle of the supermarket. It actually works and lets you explore new recipes because you already have everything you need before the day you actually need it.
I like to paint my toes crazy colors. I usually don’t wear anything but clear nail polish on my hands but on my toes I go crazy with pinks, blues, yellows and the like.
I wear a size 11 shoe. That means I have super big feet. It’s usually really hard for me to find cute cheap shoes. I’m not at a place in my life where I spend a ton on shoes so it sucks! Usually if a store does carry my size, they are sold out because everyone is having the same problem I am!
I’ve worn makeup once in my life…my junior prom. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with it. When I move, I think that’s going to change since I will be living in a house with 2 other women.
I’m not scared of roller coasters but I refuse to ride them. I’m not a small woman and I know coasters were not built to safely hold me and I’d rather not die/get stuck. So I will stay off of them until I’m their “safe” weight.
I ran the Olympic Torch for the winter Olympic when I was a Junior in High School. I was working with Students Against Violence Everywhere & the Chevy Rock Program. I was chosen to run in Washington D.C. My school bought the torch and I got a page in the Year Book. Unfortunately, my parents were told to stand on the wrong street and never got to see me run it. It was honestly my greatest accomplishment.
I’m an Army Brat. My MOM was an E8 (1st Sergeant y’all) in the Army and I have lived in Ft. Lewis (Tacoma)Washington; Kaiserslautern (K-Town), Germany; Ft. Hood, Texas; Darmstadt, Germany; and Ft. Huachuca (Sierra Vista), AZ until my mom retired. Going from Army bases to the “real world” was a huge culture shock for me.
I’m a night person but I’m currently working on becoming a morning person. It’s hard but it’s a work in progress. It’s REALLY hard to wake up at 6 am when there is snow all over the ground and you have to clean off your car! Thankfully Spring is almost here!
I quit my 365 photo project because I was taking pictures of stupid things just to make my midnight deadline. I haven’t put down my camera; I just want to be able to think about my shot before I take it. I hope that will be one small step in making me a better photographer.
I’m super scared of swimming in the ocean. I can’t go too far out into the water because I’m scared I will get sucked into the undertow. I almost drowned in the deep end of the pool when I was younger and I’m guessing I never fully gained back my confidence in my swimming abilities.
Now you know some strange things about me, give me 5-10 things I don’t know about you! You can leave it here in the comments or post a link to it on your own blog so I can check it out. Enjoy!
