I am always excited to find out more about fellow bloggers and enjoy the opportunity to share a little about myself and my life as well. Behold the seven facts about myself below!
#1 – I can’t read music.
Despite my best efforts, I’ve never been able to get my head around this arduous task. I managed to successfully play in several high school bands by writing my notes onto my sheet music and clapping out rhythms and learning by ear using a piano (this was before YouTube existed). Sight-reading was then and still is my worst nightmare. As a bonus fact, I started playing the keyboard when I was 4 when one of my siblings got into keyboard lessons. The first song I ever figured out by ear was Silent Night.
#2 – My first part-time job was at a fast food burger joint.
Back when I was 16, I took my first part-time job in the fast food industry. I met lots of interesting people and because I was so polite and well-spoken, I often had the pleasure of working on the drive-thru or in-store cashes. To this day, I still dress my burgers in the same order I was trained there right down to the mustard W on the patty!
#3 – I’ve never dyed my hair.
In all my years as a brunette, I’ve never felt compelled to dye my hair to any other colour. I’m quite happy with my natural look and can’t imagine dying it until after I have a significant number of greys starting to work their way in.
#4 – I am secretly Hank Hill in a woman’s body.
After the television series drew to a close, many people put away King of the Hill and have never looked back on it. It remains my favourite television show. I think this is in part due to how relatable Hank is for me. His shock and discomfort in social situations is what I go through inwardly all the time!
#5 – I am a Crazy Plant Lady. I have over 30 plants in my home.
From umbrella trees to African violets, I’ve got ’em all! Due to the cold and wintery climate of my area of Canada, greenery is scarce for about six months of the year. I try to compensate for that by filling my home with plants of all kinds. My favourite plant is by far the prayer plant. If you’ve never seen one, you should definitely have a look because their name comes from their nightly “praying”. They’re beautiful.
#6 – I’m incredibly ticklish.
Especially my feet. Getting a pedicure is an event that I love and hate all at the same time. My boisterous laughter while having my feet rasped definitely ruins the spa atmosphere for others which is why I will normally treat myself about once a year.
#7 – I never took naps until I lived on my own.
My parents used to link daytime/evening naps with being sick. If I had a nap and later decided that I wanted to go out with friends, I’d never hear the end of it! Eventually, I just started fighting off the sleepiness so I could live my life without knocking heads with my family! When I finally moved out, I started truly appreciating the joy of non-confrontational naps. Ah, the little joys.
Though these might not be the most interesting or conventional Self-facts out there, I hope that you enjoyed them. My nominations for the One Lovely Blog Award are as follows:
Thank you very much for reading and for the continued support in this blogging venture of mine!
