10 Things You May Not Know About Me

Me—in a nutshell

Me—in a nutshell

Sure, there’s a brief bio on this site, but that hardly encapsulates the person behind the blog. So, I’m feeling a little like sharing today. Sharing is caring, right?

Here are some tidbits from me to you.

1. I hate to read, but I read a lot. I know it’s beneficial, but for me it’s not enjoyable. These days, though, I mostly listen to books on my way to work via Audible.com because I have a long commute. Thank goodness for technology.

2. I have Pinterest boards dedicated to peanut butter and lemon. They are two of my most favorite things in the world. I don’t buy PB for my house because it’s way too tempting to just eat by the spoonful. And you’ll rarely find my water without a lemon in it—or two or three.

3. I’m really not sure if I graduated from driver’s ed. Our car was in the shop on the days we were supposed to learn to parallel park. That truth is reflected in the way I parallel park. I think there was something else we missed on those days, too, but can’t remember what it is. I’m sure I’ll think of it just as I get pulled over by the blue lights and siren.

4. I’m really not sure if my college degree is valid. I substituted a lot of my Bible and math classes for theater. Luckily, my dean was also my director.

5. I typically eat one thing at a time on my plate. Really not sure where this came from, but I’ve done it as long as I can remember. I generally work my way up to the item I like best.

6. I hate to drive. Obviously, Atlanta is a city where it’s necessary to drive. And I have a long commute, so I spend a lot of time in my car. But I do not like it. I remember asking for a chauffeur around the time I was supposed to get my driver’s license.

7. I wear a sleeping mask. A few years ago I had a lot of sleeping issues. I tried everything I could think of and others suggested to help. One of those was a sleeping mask. Now I can’t sleep without one. And because I’m a night owl who detests mornings, it really helps me ease into a new day.

8. I’m not a fan of escalators. This trauma goes back to when I was about three years-old, I think. My mom and I were in a department store and my shoelace got stuck in the escalator we were on. It scared me to death. To this day I’m pretty careful how I step on them, and mindful the whole ride.

9. I grew up on a farm. That’s probably the one that takes people most by surprise. I’m the furthest thing from a farm girl, and pretty much always was. I always wanted to be a city girl, and thanks to growing up, now I am.

10. I helped deliver my best friend’s first baby. Well, I held her foot during the process of labor and encouraged her along the way, but the earlier is my version of the story. I didn’t plan to be in there for the labor, but things just started happening quickly and I the job got handed to me, so to speak. Many of my close friends know that I hate feet. They’re dirty and smelly and ugly. So Heather knew in that moment just how much I love her.

 

Well, now you know me just a little bit better. Of course, we are all quite complicated beings so that’s the tip of the iceberg. Maybe there will be more to come. But I need to ease you into it. 😉

  1. You should have added that you love keeping up with friends, but hate talking on the phone. That’s mine too 🙂
