20 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

As you can see in the title, I’m here today to let you know a little about me beyond the blogging world. I was inspired to do this because I when I watch Youtube beauty influencers I’m fairly cautious about branching out to new channels until I watch one of their Q&A videos or 20 Things You Didn’t Know About Me. When I’m searching for a cool new makeup artist I don’t just want someone who does amazing work, I want someone that I feel like I know and that I could be friends with. So, if you’re new to my site and you’re wondering about the crazy chick who writes this blog, then keep on reading!

20 Things

-I cannot eat in the dark. I just can’t. When my mom and I would go supply shopping for my parents business we would sometimes not eat until after dark and I would have the car light on so I could see every bite of my food. When theaters that served full meals came round I thought that was the coolest thing since sliced bread! Combining a dinner date with a movie cuts out the middle man. Brilliant, right?! Here’s the catch: You have to eat in the dark. Nope. I’m done.

-When I was a little girl, I used to think traffic lights were controlled by tiny monkeys that lived inside of them.

-In college I majored in Physics with the intent of getting my electrical engineering degree.

-I’ve never liked hot drinks. Even in the dead of winter hot chocolate or coffee were never my thing. I didn’t even start drinking coffee until last year when I discovered iced coffee.

-I was super into anime shows growing up: Dragonball Z, Tenchi Muyo, Tenchi Universe, Inuyasha, Pokemon, Mononoke Hime although I never watched Sailor Moon which is odd since it was one of the more popular shows.

-When I was in college I don’t think I ever once tipped a delivery driver. In my defense, I grew up in the country so having food delivered to your house was a brand new experience to me and I didn’t even know I was supposed to.

-I hate scary movies. I can’t even handle them. I can count on one hand how many I’ve seen and it’s because someone badgered me into watching it with them and I didn’t want to be a wet rag and not do it. I can’t even watch the previews because they horrify me so much!

-Once I busted my Grandpas lip when I tried to do a fake karate kick at him and my shoe flew off and hit him in the mouth. I nearly cried I felt so bad.

-Growing up I was nicknamed Ellie May because we had so many animals and I wanted to nurse every little baby I found back to health.

-I was a major tomboy until I was about 13 or 14.

-I had Shirley Temple curls when I was a toddler. Years of using heat tools have reduced me to loose curls. Boo! If I knew then what I know now.

-I used to worry about getting hit by falling prices at Wal-Mart because every time my dad went to there he would come home and tell me he got hit by falling prices. Do y’all remember those commercials?!

-I have 8 piercings, all in my ears.

-Fall is my favorite season and Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

-I love trashy television: Jersey Shore, Dating Naked, The Bachelor/Bachelorette, etc. Something about the sheer stupidity of it is so appealing and entertaining to me.

-I used to get irrationally angry when someone mispronounced a word, now it’s just a mild pet peeve because we all mispronounce stuff. It’s life. At least that’s what I tell myself when it bugs me and I know it’s a jerk move to be irritated about that.

-I got to sit on an orca at Sea World when I was four or five.

-I grew up at a lake where my parents owned a marina.

-My favorite thing in the world to do is being crafty!

-The first Harry Potter books came out when I was ten, so I was waiting eagerly, so eagerly, for an owl with my letter for Hogwarts on July 31 because I turned 11 on August 3 so I thought it was a beautiful coincidence. I was heartbroken when my owl didn’t come and it turned out I didn’t get to go to Hogwarts.


I hope you found this entertaining! If you have a blog I encourage you to do this. Leave a link in the comments and I’ll shoot over and read it! Even if you don’t have a blog, do a Facebook status with some random facts about yourself. I’d love to learn more about you!

    4. In high school my plan was to go to college to be a Pediatric Neurosurgeon. I’m so glad that didn’t work out because I wouldn’t get to be home with my girls. Knowing me, I probably would have been married to my career instead!
