I had a different post idea for today, but I wasn't feeling it last night and I thought it would be fun to share 10 facts about me to switch things up on the blog today! I think this kind of post is such a fun one to read on other people's blogs, and I am hoping you guys in return will share a fact or two of your own with me so I can get to know you better, too! (Also, side note... I feel like it's so fun when people share facts about themselves in a video! Would you guys want to see some video content this summer? Let me know!)
~ Let's get into it ~
1. I am left-handed
I'm not sure why I thought this one needed to be #1, but maybe because it's something that surprisingly effects my day-to-day life, and I always forget how uncommon it is to be a lefty! In high school, field hockey was no problem because everyone keeps their stick on their left side (just how you play the game), but I remember when I was little how hard it was to find golf clubs that were left-handed and in my size, how challenging it was to be good at a backhand swing in tennis, and how difficult it was to find comfortable left-handed baseball gloves! I hate writing on the right side of a notebook (but hey, that's half the time ;) and I always smear thank-you notes because my hand drags. Ah, the life of a lefty.
2. I shattered my iPhone 7 a week after I got it
Real talk: I am so tired of people telling me how destroyed my phone is. Seriously, I get it... and I am the one who has to deal with it! I guess if I weren't your lazy, average college student, I would have gotten this fixed by now, but I am so used to it at this point that it doesn't bother me (that much, at least, haha) anymore. I did so well for four years of iPhones without shattering any of them, and then right when I get to college and get a brand new iPhone, it's shattered within a week! I honestly just felt so bad for my mom because she was so nice and got me the upgrade, back in October when I went home for fall break, which was way before I was due for one. Then, I got back to school and cracked it (so yeah, it's been in unfortunate condition since October). I'm the worst sometimes.
3. I am really bad at sleeping
Okay, that sounds weird. But... it's kind of true. I don't take any sleep medication or anything because I really don't think I need to, but I am so bad at sleeping. It takes the average person 7 minutes to fall asleep (yes, I googled this), and it takes me close to 20 minutes almost every night unless I am really tired. Oh, and if I go to bed before midnight, the chance of me sleeping past 8 am are slim to none. I am most definitely a morning person, and this part I am actually really grateful for. I need a long day to get things done! This summer when I get home, I want to work on reading every night before bed. I really think that would help! For now, I have been using this pillow spray since my brother got it for me for Christmas.
4. Speaking of my brother, we are completely different.
If you ever met my brother, Adrian (he's just two years older than me), or even if you just saw us in the same room for like five minutes, you would be shocked to even discover we are related. We look nothing alike, and we are totally different when it comes to personalities too! My brother goes to school in downtown Chicago (I couldn't even force myself to look at city schools... I toured George Washington University and left after 5 minutes!) and he is totally a hippie. He had a man bun until a month ago! One thing though... we both love music. I'd like to think we have similar taste in music, but if I ever said that to him he would be so offended. He actually his his own radio show on his school radio! Haha maybe I just like all of his music and he doesn't like any of mine...
ugh, take me back to my graduation party!
5. I love math
Ever since I was little, I have always loved math! It's 100% my favorite class. I came to Lehigh intending to do finance, but I actually switched into retail marketing (I talked a little about that in this post), which for me, the only downfall is that I'll be doing less math in my future :) I remember being in middle school and being so embarrassed because I loved my math classes, and kids were always complaining about them! I thought I was such a weirdo!! Now in college, last semester was my first time taking calculus, and even though it was really challenging for me (I failed the first exam so hard), I absolutely loved it. SO much math!!! Hahaha I am weird.
What is a fun fact about you?! I want to get to know you all a little bit better! Blogging should be more of a two-sided conversation.
