Tomorrow is my birthday (happy 34th to me!) and I thought it might be fun to share a few things about me that you might not know.
9 Things You Might Not Know About Me
- I don’t do open-back shoes. I see so many cute pairs of open-back shoes, but I just can’t wear them. I have one single pair that I wear to the pool and even then, I sometimes just wear a pair of sandals that strap instead. It’s just so hard for me to keep them on and they make my feet tired.
- I’ll always take the pickles off a sandwich or burger. I don’t HATE pickles and I’ll occasionally eat a pickle spear, but I’d always prefer them not on my sandwich. They overpower everything!
- I never dog-ear a page in a book. I don’t judge people who do, but I never got in the habit of doing it and I virtually never do it. I just put a library hold receipt in or whatever random piece of paper happens to be handy.
- I am not a germaphobe. I shower daily and wash my hands and put Neosporin on cuts, but overall, I just don’t worry that much about germs.
- I have a big scar on my shoulder. A few days after I came home from my freshman year of college, I got up early to take my mom to the airport (after staying up way too late the night before, naturally) and got light-headed and passed out. When I fell, I hit the edge of the tile hearth on our fireplace and gave myself a really deep cut. It hardly bled at all but required a bunch of stitches to close it up and it scarred pretty badly.
- One of my bucket list items is to visit all the US Presidential libraries. I’m off to a slow start since I’ve only been to the JFK library in Boston and the LBJ library in Austin.
- I didn’t graduate from high school. I was homeschooled from kindergarten until I went to public school in ninth grade, and then I only went to high school part time, so I didn’t have enough credits to graduate. I applied to college with my ACT score and the grades I did have.
- I prefer to eat with tiny utensils. When I was in high school, we had a tiny metal spoon with Peter Rabbit on it and that was far and away my favorite spoon to eat with. When I go out for ice cream, I always eat with the tiny sample spoon and I always eat breakfast with a dessert fork instead of a regular fork.
- I can ride a unicycle. My dad rode a unicycle in high school and when I was maybe 10 or 11, my mom bought him one for Christmas. She thought it’d be more fun if he could ride with us, so she bought a small one too and he taught me how to ride. I haven’t done it in years, but I’m crossing my fingers it’s like riding a bike.
