I know how short of an attention span you probably have with all these essays - so I've decided to just go ahead and bullet point a bit of a "Fun Fact Generator" about me, if you will. As for you, well that's your decision to tell me allll about it. If you want.
So, here we go:
I was born and raised in the beaches of Jacksonville. This has made me feel more at ease living anywhere with a smell of salt in the air.
I've left little bits of my heart in both Sydney and San Francisco (yea go on, sing the song).
I value someone's personality above all else.
I care more about who I'm with than where I am.
I've spent more money than I'd like to admit on my vinyl, but it's my coveted possession.
I work full time in Fashion Design. Now don't you go and write me off as "that girl" ("OHHH EM GEEEE....FASHIOOOON"). Here's the anecdote...I don't really like talking about fashion.
I also thought about becoming a marine biologist or a statistician.
I question my decision to turn my passion into my career.
I can cook some mean southern ribs (the trick will shock and amaze you). Oh...and buttermilk pancakes.
I helped my dad build and run a motocross track. It's where I got to ride a few laps with Travis Pastrana....I was owned.
If you truly believe you're the best thing since sliced bread.....just walk away.
I might come off as very confident and thick-skinned. I'm not.
I am always smiling or laughing about something...and want everyone else to join in...that is my goal every day with the people around me, whoever they may be.
I've been known to force everyone around me into the electric slide. To any song. Preferably Metallica - think about it.
I love a good game of pool. My ability to actually play decently will come out of hiding...sometimes.
The cello lights my skin on fire.
I like to rock a pair of heels...but I would live in my Rainbows if I could.
I desperately want to be a morning person.
Living in Australia taught me how to drink you under the table.
It also eased my Arachnaphobia. Once there's a Hunstmen Spider in your car, you can handle just about anything.
I can rap all of A Milli. I will also belt out Black Dog at the top of my lungs.
I can get along with just about anyone, and genuinely enjoy talking about anything.
I could listen to spanish guitar all night with a good glass of wine (Rodrigo y Gabriela anyone?!?!).
I could also dance to The Prodigy all night.
I can only hope to become half the woman my mother is.
I'm viciously loyal to the people in my life. My past mistakes taught me how to do that.
Seeing an old man eating alone makes me tear up.
I'm a bit...intense. But don't let that put you off - some of my fondest memories are sitting in comfortable silence.
You have something interesting to say......and I would genuinely listen if you chose to tell me.
Wow, you actually made it to the bottom of this ridiculous thing? Impressive.
