Thank you so much to Ashley Rose from Dame de Rose for nominating me for The Beautiful Blogger Award! It is an honor and I really have been enjoying reading others’ fun facts about themselves as part of the tag.
1. I’m left-handed, but right-footed.
I’m not really quite sure if it’s true that the 10% of people who are southpaws are really more artistic and strong at abstract thinking, but I have found that throughout my life I’ve had more of an aptitude for creative endeavors.
2. I can play the flute, piccolo, recorder, harmonica, and ukulele. And a few chords on the guitar.
An odd mix of instruments and none of them I’ve become exceedingly skilled in. The moment I decided to learn each was always rather spontaneous. I’d love to become more profficient at playing a select few instruments including the piano, violin, and perhaps I shall pick up my flute again.
3. Throughout my school years, I rarely studied.
I formed an awful habit of never studying really. My thinking was that if I able to pass without it, why not continue being lazy. I think it stemmed from me being a quick learner and naturally apt at learning early on, and I took that for granted.
I always did the bare minimum of what was required and never challenged myself like I should have. I still did well, but who knows what I could’ve done if I had been more dilligent in my studies and tried to excell further?
4. I’ve always been passionate about writing.
When I was in my youth, I had different phases, finnicky fads. At one point, I had wanted to be an Olympic gymnast. A master of all the known martial arts. A musician. A lawyer. A phsychologist.
I was quick to become engaged in an idea, but even faster my interest faded out. However, writing has been something that has remained constant in my life.
5. When I was five, my favorite color was clear.
I thought I was so clever at the time, but now I cringe and laugh at the thought. It definitely was unique and a contrast to the common pinks, blues, and reds that most said.
6. I was underweight and under 5 feet until the eighth grade.
I’ve always had a slight frame and when I was younger, I was used to being the shortest in my class. It was rather annoying because often my adolescent classmates acted as if my size was a measure of my competence.
It didn’t bother me as much in middle school, as the one I went to had predominantly shorter students in it and I was less self-conscious. And now, I’m grateful for my fast metabolism.
7. I never played with toys as a child.
This was mostly because they never interested me. I was often in my own head and in my vast collection of journals. Even before I knew how to write, I was scribbling down something.
I was often writing stories, drawing, and even doing math. I found in one entry, what appeared to be algebra with hearts and stars in place of the traditionally used variables.
I also never got into Disney princesses. They seemed to weak and unrealistic to me as an impressionable child. At Disneyland, I steered clear of the actors that come around dressed as Disney princesses and avoided them at all cost.
I don’t quite recall this however, my Mom did tell me that I had a fondness for Belle when I was very young. She told me that I had said I liked her because she enjoyed reading.
I was quite the avid reader myself, first picking up Pride & Prejudice and fourth grade and completeing Little Women and The Little House on the Prairie series in third grade.
Another one of the reasons why is that as a child, I had a vivid nightmare that evil Barbies had been coming out of my closet with blinking red eyes…then they walked up into my ceiling and became spiders. Needless to say, after that I had my mother get rid of all of my dolls.
I hope you enjoyed learning about me and my interesting childhood. Now for my turn to tag others!
