23 | Things About Me

I've done similar things in the past that ranged from 10-20 things about me. I wanted to do this again, but be more purposeful in what I'm sharing (if that makes sense). I want to focus more on sharing things that you may not know about me (nothing as obvious as "I'm a ginger").

The word art on my photo comes from Ali Edwards (here).

  1. I make a lot of terrible puns every chance I get. It annoys my sister, but Jon and I think they're hilarious so it's okay.
  2. I have a cyst on my brain - currently not life-threatening, but a head injury would be very very bad for me.
  3. When I was little, my older brother and I woke up before my parents and decided to play "hair dresser" in which he used safety scissors to cut the curls off my hair. I hated that all the old ladies would comment on them, and touch them, and I thought that if I didn't have curly hair any more, they'd stop touching my hair and telling me how "beautiful" it was. I looked like a little boy and had some bald spots until my hair grew back (I need to make a layout about this)
  4. I've had a cat as a pet for as long as I can remember. My parents got one when my little brother was born (I was 2) and when she died in late 2010, I got Socks from a friend of mine.
  5. I grew up without internet at home until 2006. My mom was terrified of hackers and viruses. 
  6. I got my ears pierced when I was 10, and again when I was 11 or 12., however haven't worn earings since highschool
  7. My hair wasn't straightened until I was 16 - one of my friends did it for me before going to a New Year's party. I didn't own my own good straightened until I was 18 or 19
  8. I know at least 12 gingers who live or lived in this area while I was growing up - they're rare, but it's weird that I know so many
  9. Until this year, I never drank coffee in any form - now I drink 1-2 mocha's everyday to get my coffee fix
  10. I'm a home-body. I'd rather sit at home and watch Netflix or read a book than go out and socialize. Because of this, I've lost quite a few friends, but it's who I've always been. Plus working nights doesn't leave much time for socializing
  11. The thought of driving makes me super anxious, but I know that if I ever want to live outside of town, I need to get my license
  12. My sister is the only one of my three siblings that I see/talk to on a regular basis. I haven't seen my older brother since...Early July, which is completely normal, even though we live in the same town, and his house is literally a 3 minute walk from here
  13. I struggle to keep plants alive. Unless they'll survive on whatever water and light comes from the sky, they will probably die within a couple of weeks. I want to garden more, but I never know how to properly care for the plants, or tell the difference between weed and plant
  14. I've already planned mine and Jon's wedding on Pinterest and in my head. We've been talking about it for a year or so now, and the only thing stopping us is money, and all the time we'll have to put into making it happen. Maybe in 2 years
  15. I hate throwing things away. I have two bins of clothes from highschool/college in our basement that I can't bear to part with, even though none of them currently fit me. I keep telling myself that I'll change my lifestyle so I can wear them again, but so far nothing
  16. I'm addicted to Pinterest. I have 14,000+ pins, and a lot of them are things I want to try, but can never find the time to try. I remember when I had 9,000 pins and Jon told me I was crazy. That was last year.
  17. I love kids. When I was in highschool, I babysat instead of getting a "normal" job. I spent most, if not all, of my weekends babysitting for the same family. I was their babysitter for 3 years, and was almost like family. It was the best feeling in the world.
  18. I'm extremely indecisive. We have been talking about painting our house since last summer, but I have a hard time making a final decision on the colours. I don't want to spend the money on it if I'm not going to like it when we're finished. Luckily we finally picked colours, and we're making a plan to do it next spring/summer/fall. 
  19. I complain. A lot. I'm working on not complaining so much, and trying to have a better outlook on everything. But with all of the negative things happening lately, it's been really tough to keep a positive outlook on things.
  20. My relationship with my mom wasn't and isn't always that great. I love her, and I love doing things with her when I have the time, but sometimes (as with everyone) I just feel suffocated by her, but I'm still grateful that I can have such a close relationship with her that I took for granted as a teenager.
  21. I have never in my entire life had a tan. I've been 50 shades of red/pink, but never had a tan. One year I got 3rd degree burns on my back, from an expired sunscreen, and being in the sun too long. Since then I try not to spend too much time outside when it's really warm.
  22. I love camping, but I haven't been camping in 14 years. My family used to camp every summer with my mom's parents until the summer after her dad died. The year after that the lake we would camp at flooded to extreme levels and we stopped camping. We drove past that lake on our way home from Manitoba, and I don't even recognize it. The water is so high, and a lot of the cabins and trees have been washed away or removed.
  23. I refuse to kill spiders. I'm scared of them, but I'd rather put a glass over it and wait for Jon to kill it, than kill it myself. I have no issue killing flies and other bugs, but spiders are where I draw the line.
Thank you for coming by to learn some new things about me. I'd definitely love to learn more about you, so feel free to share some things about you that might not be well-known.

I'll be back on Friday sharing Monday of my Week in the Life album. Have a great day!
