30 things: get to know me

Day 30: Thirty Facts About Me

When I first saw this prompt, I was excited. I have been in desperate need of a new "about me page," but, I have been putting it off. My list of facts really brought out some thoughts and descriptions that I don't think I would typically use. For that reason, I think it turned out pretty entertaining.
  1. I love travel and seeing new places.
  2. ...but I don't really like the outdoors that much.
  3. I believe that one day I will have seen every one of the fifty states.
  4. I have almost three complete university degrees.
  5. I am horrible at spelling. Like it is so bad, that sometimes it seems like I am joking.
  6. I love Taylor Swift...
  7. I love singing as loud as I can, but I usually won't around other people.
  8. Concerts are one of my favorite things to do.
  9. I do not have cable, or "over the air" television.
  10. I download old shows and binge watch them (Criminal Minds - holla!).
  11. I have been dying my hair since I was 14 and I don't see any indication that I will stop any time soon.
  12. I used to be real fat, like seriously fat.
  13. I have lost around 50 pounds.
  14. I still want to lose 20-30 more.
  15. I love Crossfit, but I left my gym.
  16. I think that my instagram presence is stronger than my blog.
  17. I compare myself and my life to others, but I wish I didn't.
  18. I have a love/hate relationship with my dog. I love her, but she makes me NUTS.
  19. I really like the idea of lipstick.
  20. ...but I think it looks silly on me.
  21. I like taking selfies with only half of my face in them.
  22. I got my first job at a grocery store when I was 15, because my mom wouldn't buy me plaid pants.
  23. I have had fourteen jobs total.
  24. I get a thrill out of creating a budget and sticking to it.
  25. Paying off debts is one of my favorite feelings.
  26. Sometimes I feel irrationally angry, about things that don't concern me.
  27. I also have anxiety issues (those, too, are irrational).
  28. My dog has over ten nicknames, I created all of them...
  29. I call my brother Ryan, "Brother" exclusively 
  30. I am 24 years older than my youngest sibling (Samantha) but only 5.5 years older than Brother

    1. Congrats on the weight loss! You look great.

      I can't imagine having a sibling 24 years younger! That's crazy.

    2. I'd love to see all 50 states, I've gotten 5 out of the way, haha. I'm scared to fly! I've been dying my hair since I was younger too. It's been a lot of the colors of the rainbow. I love that i'm not the only one who drinks out of the wine bottle. It's nice to meet you & I hope your having a great day!

    3. I also love Taylor Swift and singing at the top of my lungs. Lately I have been on a Shake it Off kick and I love it! Thanks for sharing!
