Random fun post for the day! I like individual tidbits about people; it makes them more fascinating to learn about. This might turn into a weekly thing, so we’ll see what happens. For now, here are ten fun facts about me:
*I’m a perfectionist with my signature, and with handwriting in general. I take great pride in my signature. It’s loopy, flourishy, and unique. I will take an extra five seconds and make sure it looks right on a check or a receipt.
*I broke my right clavicle when I was 18 months old. How? Jumping on the bed, then falling off. I still fit into the sling.
*I went on a taco hiatus for many years during high school and college. I started eating them out of the blue one day, and they’re now one of my favorite foods.
*I finally learned to swim at the ripe age of 23. It’s never too late to learn!
*I cannot stand not having a desk. To me, the desk is the base of operation of the house. Seeing all of the cute desk setups on home and lifestyle blogs makes me simultaneously jealous and excited.
*I will back up and align my car as many times as I need to so it’s perfectly straight in a parking space.
*My favorite color changes a lot. I’ve been consistent with purple for the last five or six years, but I’m falling in love with pink and sky blue. Black is always a favorite go-to.
*One of my research interests involves Disney World and its hyperreality. I wrote two or three papers on it in grad school. Look up Baudrillard and his work Simulation and Simulacra.
*I have a massive fear of getting sick. Telling people that I can’t do something because I’m under the weather is grounds for an epic guilt trip.
*Over the last few years, I have learned to channel my money into experiences and not stuff, unless that stuff is a direct reflection of the trip. Ex: my Disney ring that I bought at the end of GSC 2014. I wasn’t about to purchase a Jostens runDisney ring, and this one still does the job:
