I may be a “stickybeak” as we say in Australia, but I love learning more about other bloggers. As such, some of my favorite types of posts to read are “Things About Me” posts. So, I thought I’d join in the fun and write my own! Side note – this post took me forever to write – I found it a lot more difficult to write than I initially thought!
10 Things You Might Not Know About Me
1. My husband and I are slightly obsessed with funny memes.
If you were to look at the text messages sent between my husband and I, I’d say a good 50% of them are funny memes that we’ve found on the internet, or made ourselves. I also love any funny pictures I find online (they don’t have to be memes). I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to this!
2. I have lived in 3 countries.
I was born and raised in sunny Australia and lived there for the first 26 years of my life. I was then accepted into a study abroad program through my university, so I moved to Paris, France for a year (one of the best years of my life!) I then met my husband-to-be who happened to be American, and here I am, in Tennessee!
3. I am a Certified Personal Trainer and have a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Social Science.
Even though I completed my Certificate IV in Personal Training, I don’t currently work as a personal trainer, although I do enjoy staying fit and healthy. My bachelor’s degree included courses in Business, Psychology, and History, all of which I enjoyed!
4. I am a perpetual student.
Confession – I am addicted to learning! I absolutely love learning as much as I can about any given topic, but some of my favorites are money, investing, writing, marketing, HTML & CSS, and the human body.
5. I am a homebody.
Despite the fact that I love traveling and going on vacation, I really enjoy being at home just hanging out with my husband, baby, and dog.
6. I hate road trips.
Yes, it’s true – I absolutely hate road trips. I can’t stand being stuck in a car for longer than an hour. (It’s going to be torture when we have to drive 10 hours to our new home in North Carolina!)
7. My favorite dog breed is the chihuahua.
I know chihuahuas have a bit of a reputation, but in my opinion “to know a chihuahua is to love a chihuahua”. I have a tiny 5lb black and tan chi named Pepe, and he is the sweetest, sauciest most adorable bundle of fur. He has converted every “small dog hater” that he’s ever met and makes me laugh every single day with his antics.
8. I don’t have a favorite food.
This only just occurred to me recently when my husband asked me what my favorite food was. He realized that we have been married for almost 5 years and he didn’t know the answer. I thought about it for a while and then realized that I don’t know the answer either. I enjoy a lot of different foods (tacos, pasta, southwest salad, pizza, chocolate covered strawberries to name a few) but I couldn’t possibly choose one favorite!
9. I am terrible at remembering street names.
We have lived in the same subdivision for almost 5 years and I still don’t know the names of any streets besides my own. I go by landmarks instead. If I were to give you directions to my house it’d go something like this “Turn left at the big gas station, then take the second right at the house that has the garden swing out front” etc etc. This is why I don’t give people directions.
10. I adore sloths.
It’s a running joke between my husband and I that every year, I ask for a sloth for my birthday (and every year, he doesn’t get me one.) I would never actually own a sloth (because I believe they should be in the wild, where they belong), but I think I’d probably cry if I ever got the chance to hold one. If you know of any sloths that need a cuddle, let me know! Seriously.
