Remember this from Facebook? Well, my good friend Rose from This Day Right Now (go follow her!) just posted one of these, and I was reminded of how efficiently you get to know someone through it. I never did one of these when they were big on FB, and I’ve always loved lists, so why not! To those of you who are new followers, I figured I would introduce myself!
25 facts about me:
1- I have attempted at least ten books, and never stop writing. INTO THE OCEAN is really just the first book I ever finished.
2- Mosquitoes LOVE me.
3- Lately I am so into podcasts, especially Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend. If you like podcasts, you’ll love this one!
4- I took two years of Latin and two of Spanish in high school, and got all the way up to Spanish IV at college. And I can’t speak a word of it.
5- My ears are allergic to most earrings.
6- I ship Hartbig. ♥
7- I’m 5’7 and three quarters.
8- I love Forever 21, H&M, and Nordstrom’s Rack.
9- I call my boyfriend Cat, although we’re definitely dog people.
10- Obviously I love Lena Dunham.
11- I am obsessed with Orange Is The New Black (just read the book and binge-watched the series).
12- One of my favorite books made me sob inconsolably through the last hundred pages. Pulitzer Prize winner “Let’s Take The Long Way Home” by Gail Caldwell.
13- I always say yes to lettuce, onion, and tomato on my burgers and then always pick them out before eating.
14- I’m completely obsessed with English bull terriers.
15- The other day my grandfather told me he would have to call me back since he was in the middle of eating his nightly Dove dark chocolate ice cream bar, and I smiled so hard I couldn’t even see.
16- My boss was at my sangria soaked, BMX birthday party, with my mostly teenage guests hanging on her every word, until 1 AM.
17- I have only pulled one all-nighter in my adult life, and it was to write 70 pages of a book that I now can’t stand to look at.
18- My closest friend from New Jersey actually followed me to Hawaii after he graduated high school and lived in a cockroach-infested room less than one block from me. What a wild six months!
19- I love weight training and running, and hiking.
20- I usually order moscato at restaurants, even though it’s always listed as a dessert wine. Whatever!
21- I love lipstick but don’t own any MAC lipsticks. I know, I’m ashamed.
22- When I went off to college, I learned what living in Texas outside of Austin was like. My first night, my old (crazy) roommate’s boyfriend rolled in his own cooler- ON WHEELS- full of Bud Light on ice.
23- If I’m at my desk, there are usually at least three candles lit.
24- It took me nine months to write Into The Ocean, and another year to edit it.
25- I once trampolined over a fence to escape a party being busted by the cops. Ah, high school in Hawaii. So Ferris Bueller.
So, what do you think? Are you obsessed with candles and OITNB? Are you also a M-A-C virgin? Please tell me I’m not the only one!
P.S.! I feel like I should explain #6… Shipping is when you imaginarily pair two people together & root for them. Like Peeta and Katniss in The Hunger Games, although I don’t know who would ship that. Anyway, Hartbig is the pairing of Hannah Hart and Grace Helbig, my youtube favorites.
A lot of us like to pretend Hannah and Grace are secretly together. “Pretend.”
Ha! Okay, thanks for reading.
