Happy Friday, beautiful people! I hope this week has treated you well 🙂 My creative juices are flowing today, and well, I don’t know about you guys, but I love learning about the ladies & gentlemen behind the blogs that I follow, so I figured I would share a few random facts about myself that you may not already know. Let’s get started, shall we?
1- In elementary school, when I got my first pair of glasses, I was so incredibly embarrassed to wear them that they did not come out of my backpack for months. I’ve since gotten over this fear 😂
2- I love a lot of things & have a lot of different interests; My degree is in healthcare administration, but I also have certifications in teaching English as a foreign language, event planning, & PR. My employment history involves a lot of music, & I’ve done a lot of volunteer work surrounding animals. Needless to say – I’ve never been 100% sure what I wanted to do for a living. Maybe I never will!
3- Up until March of this year, I was fur mama to the world’s oldest living pet rabbit! During the time Guinness World Records was processing his application to be published, he passed away at the ripe old age of 16. He was filmed for National Geographic, and his veterinarian planted a tree in his honor with the Arbor Day Foundation. One of my bucketlist items is to find that tree. Miss my little guy everyday <3
4- My lucky numbers are 7 and 10.
5- When I first started college, I got a job at a local pet store. While feeding one of the pythons, I was bitten pretty badly, and now have a crippling fear of snakes. Can you blame me?!
6- I love photography, but am much more comfortable being behind the camera than in front of it. One of my goals is to get over this.
7- Ah, caffeinated drinks, where do we begin? Red Bull, coffee, green tea, Coke, pre-workouts. You name it, I probably love it. They’re a weakness, for sure.
8 – I’ve been a picky eater my entire life, bless my parents’ hearts. If I don’t like how something looks, I’m not eating it.
9- I try to give out compliments every chance I get. I don’t think that we, as human beings, praise each other nearly enough as we ought to.
10- My favorite color is pretty much any variety of blue.
11- I definitely do my best work late at night.
12- I have an unhealthy obsession with Frank Ocean. If there was one person in the world I could spend a day with, it would hands down be him.
13- I’ve been with my boyfriend, Tyler, for almost 5 years now. Fun fact – We first spoke when I was 15 and he 17, on Myspace. Still makes me giggle thinking about it.
14- I was the music director for my university’s radio station. All of the songs you heard on the air were hand-selected by me, & I even hosted a weekly radio talk show! Public speaking is a huge fear of mine, so doing that really pushed me out of my comfort zone. It’s something I’m really proud of.
15- I also played piano my whole life, competed at the state level for a while, and even taught throughout college.
16- I feel naked if I’m not wearing earrings.
17- The question I get asked most frequently is what my ethnicity is.
18- Mine & Tyler’s anniversary is my favorite holiday, w/ Halloween coming in at a close second.
19- I can’t stand being hot. I wait all year long for those couple of cold days here in South Florida (probably live in the wrong place, huh?) I would take 30 degrees over 90 any day.
20- I’ve never broken a bone (nor do I plan on it!)
Did any of these facts surprise you?! Let me know if the comments below 🙂
