The Frugalwoods have graciously nominated me for The Versatile Blogger award, which means that I have to tell you 12 random facts about me. So, here goes!
1. I love technology and learning new things
I really enjoy learning about technology and always want the newest gadgets when they come out. It pains me so much that I have to wait a year before I can get the iPhone 6. #FirstWorldProblems . In all seriousness, I really do enjoy learning about css, coding, and playing with anything new when it comes to tech. And in general, I really enjoy learning new things and growing. The downside of this being sometimes I forget to stay focused on what’s important.
2. I have one brother and one sister (and we look alike)
My brother is in his ophthalmology residency (this photo is at his med school graduation), and my sister is finishing her undergraduate degree. I’m the oldest!
3. I’ve been to Africa
While in undergrad, I went to Lesotho (a small country completely within South Africa) for 30 days with a group of students. We learned about the culture, built houses, visited orphanages, and took classes. It was amazing.
4. I am obsessed with Kate Middleton
Everything about Kate, I like and want to copy.
5. I was a ballet dancer growing up (just like Mrs. Frugalwoods!) and danced a bit in college, too
Can you find me in this pic from college?! Nowadays, I like to dance, practice yoga, or run (usually just a mile every morning before work). Anything that keeps me active and moving is a must! I can’t sit still for very long.
6. I love podcasts and intentional living
If there is a life theory or success habit out there, I want to know about it. I don’t know what I would do without podcasts. I truly enjoy learning and would be happy to live with the internet and without a TV.
7. I only read non-fiction
I love non-fiction everything and it pains me to read fiction anything. And I’m always looking for recommendations if you have any for me (I like to keep my Kindle wish list full 🙂 ).
8. I love fall activities
I love apple picking, apple cider, pumpkin picking, coffee, sweatshirts, football season, etc. I love it all. And I love activities in general, especially trying new things. This photo is one I took while on a walk in the metro parks with a friend and her dog!
9. I’m really clumsy
I’m incredibly tidy and clean. Everyone knows this, as it coincides nicely with my neurotic type-A personality. What few people know (mostly only my coworkers), is that I am actually really clumsy. I spill things on myself and on my desk frequently. Once my coworker said that it’s impressive how I’m always coming up with new ways to spill things. I keep a tide pen in my purse, but this barely does the job.
10. My arms are double jointed
I can twist my arms around a lot past the point of anyone you’ve probably ever seen, and it really freaks people out. I’m sure if you search “double jointed arms” you will get an idea of what I’m talking about, only mine are very exaggerated.
11. I have terrible eye sight
I’ve worn glasses since I was 5 years old (side note – how awesome are the 90s things in this photo – neon, Keds, puffy coat, caboodle on my bike…)! Anyways, I’ve worn contacts since I was 12 years old, and I would get Lasik but I’m not a candidate because of my astigmatism.
12. I love sweets
I realllllly love sweets, specifically chocolate. If there is chocolate in my house, there is a zero percent chance it will be there in two days time.
