Twenty Six Facts

Happy Valentine's Day! I realized that haven't done a post in a long time that lets you get to know me a little better.  For my twenty sixth birthday a few weeks ago I shared twenty six fun facts about myself on InstaStories so I thought it would fun to share it on here with all of you too.  Here are twenty six completely random facts that I hope you enjoy!

1. I try not to eat fried foods, but when I do french fries and fried calamari are my favorite cheats!

2. I don't like breakfast meat or eggs other then egg whites.

3. For a big breakfast I much prefer bagels, waffles, french toast, and pancakes.

4. I don't drink alcohol anymore because it is a HUGE trigger for my Crohn's disease and I also cannot drink with the medication I take for Rheumatoid Arthritis.

5. When I was in college and could drink I either drank vodka cocktails or champagne.

6. I much prefer the snow and cold weather to the sun and hot temperatures.

7. Lately I've been obsessed with watching TLC and HGTV.

8. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, but thanks to medication and therapy I have it (mostly) under control.

9. When I was in high school black nail polish was very high fashion and I loved it. My Mom thought black nails looked "goth" though and wouldn't let me wear it. That is the only time I remember really arguing with my Mom about clothes or makeup as a teenager. (And eventually she let me paint my nails black!)

10. My sophomore year of college I got my cartilage pierced after I had a pretty major surgery because I felt I didn't have a choice about the surgery, but I did have a choice in getting a piercing.

11. Probably the only other clothing/makeup/accessory my Mom and I argued about was said piercing (after I got it done).

12. My Mom was super lenient with me in high school because I got good grades and was a rule follower. This is the reason we only ever had like two fights that related to fashion.

13. My Mom and I are super close and I consider her to be one of my best friends.

14. I have donated my hair three times.

15. I got my first dog when I was sixteen and I will never not have a dog.

16. I don't like musicals.

17. I've lived in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

18. I want to wear pale pink when I get married because it's my favorite color and I look awful in white.

19. I met my best friend when I was six months old.

20. I've taken Spanish, French, and Russian, but cannot speak any of them.

21. I love to travel alone.

22. I don't sleep well at night because of my chronic pain. For some reason I feel better and more awake at night then during the day so it's better for me to stay up at late night and sleep more during the day.

23. I was home instructed for most of high school because of my health and going away for college was HUGE for me. I was also terrified because I was really only used to being around adults (doctors, teachers, my parents, etc.) and hadn't been around people my age in so long. It was the BEST thing I've ever done though.

23. I did college in five years due to my health. I could only take four classes a semester because of my chronic illnesses so I needed to do an extra year to get enough credits to graduate.

25. I had to have my gallbladder out when I was 15.

26. This year was the first time it didn't snow on my birthday in twenty six years and I'd be lying if I said I was not bummed.

Now that you know more about me, I'd love to hear more about you so leave a fun fact about yourself below in the comments!

  1. In a league of its own, this mens barber shop near me is a haven for the modern gentleman seeking a refined grooming experience. The decor is tastefully upscale, and the service is unparalleled. The stylists' talent shines through in every work they create, and their dedication to achieving the perfect look is commendable. This is where I found my signature style, and I can't imagine going anywhere else for my grooming needs.
