24 Random Bits About Me | A Rose in Bloom

Have you ever wanted to know more about me? No? Well, too bad. I've temporarily lost my laptop charger (don't worry, should be mailed back soon!) so instead of photos of old barns I took on the interstate, you get a selfie and some facts you may have never wanted to know. Unless you're a snoop. Then you really wanted to know.

  1.  I was supposed to have been an abortion, but my mom decided she was willing to take care of a child with Down's Syndrome after all. Turns out I didn't/don't have Down's Syndrome.
  2. Having suffered from depression at various points in my life, I am a firm advocate of mental health research and treatment. It saves lives.
  3. I can't choose between being a coffee lover and a tea lover. I go through periods where I drink primarily one or the other for a month or more at a time.
  4. I have four (!) brothers so I tend love all things girly while tromping through the mud.
  5. My home was robbed twice when I lived in Alabama. When I moved to Kentucky, I got a pitbull as a guard dog. She now lovingly (re: terrified) hides behind me from cats, thunderstorms, and various small animals. Bumblebees, however, are fair game.
  6. I have since learned pitbulls do not make good guard dogs.
  7. Speaking of bumblebees, I have an absurd, embarrassing fear of all things that sting. One of my brothers was deathly allergic to insect venom and I watched him almost die after getting stung by a wasp when I was maybe 10. I think that's why I run away like a screaming toddler chased by a bear when I see a bee.
  8. I was a super artsy child. I learned drawing, painting, various forms of dance, and did theatre in college. The only field I still practice is ballet/modern dance.
  9. I didn't start learning ballet till I was 14 and I still earned a tutu by 23. Never let anyone tell you it's too late to learn something.
  10. My favorite band is Bright Eyes if I am emotional.
  11. Or Green Day if I'm feeling nostalgic.
  12. Or Bob Dylan and Jack White when I feel like a grown up.
  13. I'm trying to switch all my makeup to cruelty free because animals don't deserve to have chemicals shoved into their eyes. This task is harder than I thought. If anyone knows a cruelty free version of the MAC mineralize skin finish, help a sister out.
  14. I used to have terrible body image issues. I think I had  an eating disorder many years ago (certainly had many symptoms), but ain't nobody got money to look into that. I hated my wide set hips and consequently larger thighs and butt. These days I give zero f*(&$. Most of the time.
  15. I used to have a belly button piercing but my body rejected it. Boo.
  16. I want a tattoo but I'm scared!!!
  17. The last book I read was Yes Please by Amy Poehler.
  18. My favorite book is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. The tears are real!
  19. My favorite show is 30 Rock. 
  20. Liz Lemon is exactly why I didn't pursue theatre tech as a career.
  21. There are few things more satisfying than a glass of red wine and dark chocolate.
  22. I have two favorite quotes: "A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do." - Bob Dylan. “A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.”- C.S. Lewis
  23. I have the handwriting of a child.
  24. I love rainstorms and dry heat so I can never decide where I want to live in the future.
