10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Me

All week I’ve had the song “Getting to Know You” stuck in my head from “The King and I.” In honor of that wonderful song, I decided to whip up a list of ten things you might not know about me.

  1. I used to hate to run, but now I love it.
  2. When I go on runs, I mainly listen to movie soundtracks. They make me feel like an epic superhero and keep me charged through the end of the workout.
  3. I get way too attached to fictional characters in books, movies and TV shows.
  4. I am easily startled so please don’t sneak up on me!
  5. I love doing things by myself. I enjoy hanging out with other people, but there’s something nice about taking yourself to a restaurant or just spending the evening alone. Solitude is wonderful.
  6. I used to work for a pet store in college. Never again! I love animals, but having dogs bark in my ears all day long is not my dream job.
  7. Every morning, I try to wake up with a heart full of gratitude. I do this by listing at least 3 things I’m thankful for.
  8. I want to be a young adult and romance writer. I take a little time every day to work toward this goal.
  9. I used to weigh about 200 pounds in college. I’ve lost around 40 pounds and am still working toward my goal weight.
  10. I take great pride in my home and my domestic skills. I love knitting, cooking, and baking in particular. Sewing is something I’ve always had a fondness for, so my parents got me a sewing machine for Christmas. I’m super excited to try it out!
