Since I’m having a bit of a writer’s block, I thought I would give you all some random information about me, which was inspired from my weekly flip through US Magazine. Every US Magazine issue features a spot on a celebrity entitled 25 things you don’t know about me. So here are some of mine:
1.) I love to collect things related to elephants and giraffes, especially after having visited Africa.
2.) I love decorating for all holidays (though most of the time, my budget does not allow for this, nor does my current living situation)
3.) I have a huge fear of spiders and snakes.
4.) growing up in a small town in upstate NY, I’m not phased if I open the garage door at a relatives house and find a dead deer hanging, gutting, drying out….still a bit gross.
5.) I can shoot a bow and arrow, but I prefer guns
6.) I am slightly addicted to reality shows…sometimes they make me appreciate my own life, as mine is not as crazy and drama-filled.
7.) I love to cook and taught myself how to do it
8.) I have designed my own diamond ring, and am working on designing a tattoo
9.) I am surprised by how much I love sushi. I had never had it until I moved to California 4 years ago.
10.) I am afraid of heights, but prefer to fly rather than drive.
11.) I conquered my fear of heights by going on a hot air balloon ride with some friends…..it was terrifying and amazing!
12.) I have moved at least 20 times so far in my life, and I am just barely over 30.
13.) 2 of my celebrity crushes: Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper
14.) when I was in high school, I got my grandmother addicted to soap operas
15.) I love to travel and so far have been to 8 countries outside of the USA.
16.) My favorite colors are red, orange, and blue
17.) I have an uncanny ability to solve the puzzle on Wheel Of Fortune when there are only 1 or 2 letters showing.
18.) I had my first hangover when I was in 7th grade….and I had school the next morning. It was purely accidental, and I was not alone in my misery.
19.) I need to sleep with a fan on, and often the TV as well.
20.) I think making your bed every morning is a waste of time.
21.) When taking pictures, I often take the same shot 5-8 different ways, with different angles. My family thinks I’m crazy, but you never know which pic you are going to like best.
22.) I am super organized at work, but home is a different story.
23.) I have a cool scar on my leg from a boating accident on the Nile River
24.) I am quite clumsy; I run into everything, trip over my own feet, drop stuff, and often don’t know where most of my bruises come from
25.) I can laugh like Elmo from Sesame Street.
