10 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

It’s been a while since I’ve introduced myself, and I know I’ve picked up some new TBL followers since then! So, I wanted to share some things about myself. Depending on how well you know me, you may already know a thing or two on this list. I love getting to know people and learning small parts of other people’s lives, so I thought I’d share a few things about me that many people don’t know or might find interesting! 

  1. I LOVE jazz music. There’s something effervescent and calming about the saxophone. I’m also a sucker for Frank Sinatra’s music and love renditions of his songs on the sax. 🎷
  2. There was a point in time where I wanted to dye my hair blonde. I tried to get there gradually through highlights, but eventually started to hate the ombré look on my hair. I couldn’t bear to see it extend to my roots. Glad that phase is over! 💁🏻‍♀️
  3. When the iPhone was first released in 2007, I hated it and said I would never get one. That lasted about as long as me trying to learn Tap Tap Revenge on the touch-screen-technology-breakthrough. 📱
  4. I grew up a Disney kid and still absolutely love it to this day. My favorite movies are Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland, and The Aristocats. 💙
  5. I never learned how to ride a bike. My boyfriend is convinced he’s going to teach me, but I think it’s going to take longer than expected. It’s one of those things that’s ideal to learn when you’re younger and developing your balance skills. I asked my dad to take my training wheels off as a kid, and I think I magically thought I’d hop on and just ride away into the sunset. Instead, I flew down the driveway and blacked out. Makes for a funny story thought, right? 🚲
  6. I love school and I wish I could commit to going back for another degree. It’s a huge investment of time and money, but I know I won’t use it for anything, which is why I haven’t enrolled again after earning my Master’s degree. 🎓
  7. I use project management software in my personal life. Yup, I’m that organized. 📒
  8. I’ve never been out of the country, but I love traveling. My boyfriend and I like to take mini trips that can easily be incorporated into a 3 or 4-day weekend. We’re hoping to change that in the near future! I’ve always wanted to visit London, Italy, Greece, Paris, Cappadocia, and Vancouver. Our last few trips were to Yosemite, Monterrey Bay, and San Diego. 🧳
  9. I’m a huge Gossip Girl fan. I’ve rewatched all the seasons and couldn’t possibly explain how much I love the show. XOXO 💋.
  10. It’s my writerly dream to have a cute Pinterest-like nook where I can read or journal. I’d love to have some white Christmas lights hanging around it and have some cozy pillows nearby. 📖
