I was tagged to do this by chantelbrenna, but today was my first day off since I got tagged, so I am just now getting to it. I am going to go ahead and tag natangy!
Fact #1: My favorite place in the entire world is Disneyland in California! In fact, for a long time the most-played song on my iPod was the 17-minute audio for the fireworks show Disneyland did for the 50th anniversary.
(I wanted to be mean and not make this fact about Disney, just to spite Chantel, but then decided that’s not the Disney Way.)
Fact #2: I love to dance! I don’t have a ton of rhythm and almost zero musical inclination, but dang do I love to dance, either alone in my room or at a party or anywhere!
Fact #3: When I get upset (crying or angry), I stutter. I think this is because in high school I got hit in the throat by a hockey puck during gym class and my larynx went into spasms and I couldn’t talk without stuttering for a couple of days.
(The guy who hit me in the throat with the hockey puck was a jerk and told me later that he thought it was funny.)
Fact #4: My favorite physical thing about myself is probably my hair, even though I do have a lot of Bad Hair Days. It’s naturally curly, frizzy, and dirty blond, and it breaks easily. I kind of baby it; right now I shampoo it with a special shampoo once every other week, condition it with silicone-free conditioner three times a week, and use a hair moisturizer twice a week. I also never use heat on it (it takes a couple of hours to air-dry) and I don’t pull it up with hair elastics (though I have been using yoga bands lately). I have some body image issues that I am working through, but I have no problem loving my hair. Here is a recent selfie I took after I washed my hair (which makes it a little frizzier than normal):
Fact #5: I wear sunscreen obsessively. I wear SPF 110+ on my face and SPF 100 on the rest of my body, every single day (even in the winter). I burn really easily and never tan.
Fact #6: My favorite food is corn chowder, but I love soup in general. This is a boring but important fact about me.
Fact #7: I am an introverted person (INSJ on the Myers-Briggs personality test), and sometimes I get really tense if I am over-stimulated. I get really cranky if I hear a sudden loud noise, for example. I also hate it when people touch me without me inviting them to, especially my back.
Fact #8: I watch a ton of TV! My favorite TV show of all time is The Twilight Zone, and my favorite shows that are currently running are New Girl and Bob’s Burgers! I also enjoy The Mindy Project, Once Upon A Time (even though it pains me to admit it), Elementary, Parks and Rec, and Community.
Fact #9: I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Fact #10: I read A LOT, and I love talking to people about books.
