Friday Fun Facts.

       I used to share "get to know me" blog posts a lot more frequently in years passed. It's been forever since I've shared something like that, so I thought this would be a fun way to close out this week here on the blog! I'm just sharing some fun and random facts about me. Maybe some of these you already knew, but I'm also guessing some you won't! 

Fun Facts About Me:

  1. Being a radio host was literally my childhood dream! I feel so lucky that after much hard work, all of my full-time jobs as an adult have been in the industry I dreamed of working in.
  2. Spring is my favorite season, followed by summer, autumn and then winter in last place.
  3. I had to go to the DMV for four years straight from 2016-2019. (NC license, VT license, VA license and then upgrading to REAL ID.) One good thing about 2020 is I didn't go to the DMV once!
  4. Water is my favorite beverage. I've loved drinking water since I was a kid, and I have never struggled to drink enough during the day.
  5. I love swimming and boogie boarding in the ocean when the weather is warm in the summer! I've never been one of those people who just lies out on a towel at the beach.
  6. I moved to Virginia four years ago next week! 
  7. Speaking of that, I was never a wine drinker before I moved to Virginia. My favorite local Virginia wine varietal is Viognier.
  8. I've always driven sedans. I really like having a trunk that is separate from the rest of of the vehicle. 
  9. I love making lists, and especially bucket lists. I'm currently working my way through my 101 in 1001 list, and my first year in Virginia Beach list
  10. I was a competitive figure skater growing up. I stopped competing when I was 12, but I still took figure skating lessons until I was 15. 
  11. Three places that I've traveled to more than once and I'd like to keep exploring and going back to: MontrealNew York City, Houston/Galveston TX.
  12. I've been a bridesmaid twice so far.
  13. The two main things that I collect are Starbucks You Are Here mugs and keychains when I travel. I also collect magnets and cookbooks to some degree.
  14. I would rather fly than drive somewhere given the choice. But despite that, it is a dream of mine to do a cross-country road trip someday!
  15. I just started taking golf lessons about a month ago, after wanting to learn how to play for years!
  16. One thing that brings me so much joy is entertaining and hosting people in my home. While I do love my current apartment, I can't wait to have a larger dining area again someday so I can more easily host dinner parties again.
  17. One of the coolest things I've ever done was rappelling off a building! It was in 2017 for a work at the first radio station that I worked at.
  18. I am a big cat person, but rabbits are actually my favorite animal!
  19. I had a few different pets throughout my childhood: various fish, a cat named Shakeena and a rabbit named Lily Bunny. My only pet in adulthood so far has been my cat Delilah! I've never had a pet dog.
  20. I have anxiety about my cell phone battery getting too low. I rarely let it go below 50% before charging it.

  1. Ok how did I not know you were a competitive figure skater?! That is such a fun fact!

  2. I am 100% the same way about my phone! I keep it plugged into a charger when I'm at my office and usually slap it onto the charger at home when it gets too close to 50%.

  3. Thanks meant for sharing this type of satisfying opinion, written piece is fastidious, that’s why I’ve read it completely.
