16 Things You Might Not Know About Me

  • I am a black belt in karate
  • That being said, I am a 28 year old black belt that avoids answering the door for the UPS man at all costs. I see the truck, and immediately retreat to the back of the house until he is gone.
  • My favorite alcoholic beverage is Menage a Trois Red Blend wine
  • I enjoy eating my cereal out of a cup rather than a bowl
  • I have a strong love for anything Jim Henson. Some of my favorite movies are Labyrinth (RIP Jareth), anything Muppets, and The Dark Crystal
  • I have a mother (who passed away when I was 7), an ex-stepmom (who was married to my dad for about 6 years), and a stepmom (who has been married to my dad for 12 years). I think I’ve mentioned once before, I have a weird family dynamic.
  • I drive a pickup truck. A Toyota Tacoma, to be exact. I love my pickup truck.
  • I actually only wear makeup about two or three times a week (if that), but I LOVE reading, writing, and talking about it. Hence, this blog. And my Youtube channel.
  • I’ve just recently really started enjoying baths.
  • I’ve never tried a vegetable I don’t like.
  • I have a Bachelor’s degree in Marine Biology, but I am not a Marine Biologist
  • It is a close call between Mexican and Italian cuisine when it comes to my favorites. I just can’t pick.
  • My favorite drink to order at the coffeeshop is a coffee (iced in the summer, hot in the winter) with a shot of coconut syrup in it. A little half and half and I’m in heaven.
  • Speaking of coconut, it is my all-time favorite scent, flavor, thing, ever. As in, I smell or eat coconut anything and I am in complete bliss.
  • I have missed out on a lot of classic movies in my life and it doesn’t bother me…enter any of the Rocky movies, Indiana Jones movies, or the Godfather movies. I haven’t seen The Sound of Music, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, The Graduate…the list goes on and on.
  • I am a gamer. Like, bonafide PC gamer with a headset and gaming keyboard and everything.

I hope you enjoyed having a little closer peek into who I am!

As always, thanks for stopping by,

  • You studied Marine Biology but you didn’t like baths?!? I don’t understand how that makes sense. All of sea creatures LOVE baths. They like, literally LIVE in baths. Can’t live outside of them. It’s like, chapter one of Marine Biology, right?

    Ha! Just kidding. But I am seriously going to try the shot of coconut syrup in my next iced coffee…

    This is an awesome post! Would you be horrified if I “stole” the idea at some point? (please say it’s ok, I promise I won’t make any more Marine Biology/baths jokes)

    • Oh Meghan, please do this post! I considered making it into a “tag” post, but thought that might be silly since there are probably a million of these types of “tag” posts out there. I just wanted to share some little tidbits about myself that you guys might not know!

      And uh yes, one other silly thing about me studying Marine Bio…I am also terrified of deep water. Like, the monster from Waterworld is going to come eat me if I can’t touch the bottom… 😐

      • I love the “tag” posts but I always feel weird doing them if I haven’t been formally “tagged” (and a little sad but whatever!)

        Um from what I know about the ocean, it’s like, less understood and more dangerous than outer space? I don’t know a lot about the ocean. I never even learned to swim. I’m totally doing this post!!!

        • I feel the same way about tag posts! Consider yourself “tagged” 😀

  • Great post! All of this was so interesting! I’ve always wanted to study Marine Biology! That is so cool!

    Best, Mariam

    • Thank you! It was fun to study! I loved every minute of it! Except Physics and Organic Chemistry. Those were bad times. Ha!

      • I know what you mean! There’s a reason I never continued with medical school! Hated it sooo much, couldn’t keep up wight he math and chem stuff.

    Coconut in coffee sounds like it would be tasty! I’ve had it in my hot chocolate and it’s delicious! I have a Batchelor’s degree in Accounting but I’m not an accountant! Also, i haven’t watched a lot of the classic movies either – my friends often describe me of being deprived on the movie front ahahaha! This post really made me smile 🙂

    • You MUST try the coconut! It’s amazing! Like summertime in a cup! 😀 I’m glad the post made you smile! That means so much 🙂

  • Georgia

    I’ve never tried coconut in coffee before before, but it sounds really nice! I love the scent of coconut as well 🙂 xx

  • I always eat my cereal out of coffee mugs! It drives my partner wild because then I roam the house eating cereal instead of sitting like a “normal person”. I say being normal is overrated. I’m a gamer as well. My Xbox 360 and I go way back – but I fail at first person shooters. It’s very saddening. Great list!

    • My husband thinks the same thing about my cereal eating habits! Haha! I am also terrible at first person shooters. He has been trying to get me to play Battlefield with him and his friends, but I know there is no point since I’m so awful at them! Haha!
