One of my personal resolutions is to let people in a little more. I want to learn how to share more about myself, and just be more open overall. For those of you who are just starting to read my blog, and those who are new to blogging yourselves, I wanted to share some info about myself. So here it goes!
Fifteen Facts About Yours Truly
I can be ridiculously shy, depending on the situation. If I’m around other shy people, I’m the more outgoing one that tries to bring them out of their shell. But if I’m around loud, eccentric people, I tend to shut down. It’s definitely something I’m working on.
I graduated in May of this year with my Bachelors Degree in Communications and Media Studies. I’m immensely proud of this achievement, but so happy that it’s over and done with.
I used to (and still do quite often) play Ice Hockey. My dad taught me out on the frozen lake when I was very young, and I still try to play whenever I can.
My pet peeve is when people are selfish. Who doesn’t hate that?! If you don’t ask me how I am, or how my day was, and continue to go on and on about yourself, our friendship won’t last.
I’m addicted to running. I get grumpy when I can’t run and/or go to the gym. I try to go 5 days a week, but sometimes it doesn’t work out.
I have been working at marinas since I was 16. I started as just a dockhand during the summers, and now I design and update their website, and sell boats and waverunners year round. I work really hard, and I’m proud of that.
When Kyle and I first moved in together, I was in school full time finishing my degree, and I worked 4 jobs. It was the most stressful time of my life, but I did what I had to do for us.
About 6 years ago, I was in a horrible relationship. It destroyed me in many ways, but then there was Kyle. I still look at him and wonder if he’s real sometimes.
I absolutely love animals. ALL animals (check out my adventure at the fair with farm animals!). I would do anything to save/help an animal in need. So I hope Kyle is ready for the 10 puppies I want to bring home daily…
At 15 years old, I visited New York City with a friend and her family for her birthday. It was a complete culture shock to me. I saw a homeless man sitting up against a building and just burst into tears. It broke my heart.
I never cry in public. If it gets to that point, something serious has happened.
I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Kyle after dating for only 2 weeks.
When I was in high school, I missed the state qualifications for Outdoor Track in the 400 meter dash by .4 seconds.
I spend way too much money at Starbucks. I always get the Caramel Machiatto. If you haven’t tried it, you need to.
The first gift Kyle ever gave me was a stuffed animal dog. Clearly he knows me well given that we weren’t even dating at the time!
If you’re having trouble getting personal with your posts, try something like this. Make it feel factual, and before you know it you’ll be sharing things you didn’t think you would.
Do you relate to any of these? What are some facts about you that others wouldn’t expect?
