Welcome to another edition of Five Things Friday! I’m a little under the weather here (stupid cold) so no run to recap for you this morning. Since I’ve been at this blogging thing a few months, and it seems like there’s been a bunch of new readers in the past week (Hi! Welcome! Thanks for checking me out!), I thought I’d share a few things you may or may not already know about me.
1. I (briefly) majored in musical theater in college.
For two years, I studied musical theater. This following years of community theater, choir, voice lessons, dance lesson, theater camp, music classes, the works. If there was a performance related activity, chances are I was involved. By the spring of my sophomore year of college, I realized I didn’t really want to be a performer anymore and quickly switched to a history degree. Best decision I ever made.
2. I’m a klutz.
Like a spectacular klutz. When I was twelve, I broke my right collarbone and right arm in the same summer. There’s a story about falling getting out of my bunk bed (sober) my freshman year of college that forever earned me the sorority nickname “Grace.” I often find bruises that I have no idea how I got them. Really, falling on my face? A once a week occurrence.
3. Including English, I can sing Happy Birthday in three languages.
Thank you Sr. Rosalie and Sr. Mimi. If you can guess the other two languages, I will serenade you on your next birthday.
4. My favorite food is broccoli.
Has been since I was a little girl. My dad still offers to make it for me at least once every two weeks.
5. I’ve worn a size 10 shoe since the 9th grade.
At 5’5″, I’ve never felt like my feet were the right size for my height. Since my feet are so big, I’ve had a hard time finding shoes that fit and don’t look like orthopedic shoes. Which has led to my terrible habit of seeing shoes I like, finding them in my size, and heading for the cash register. Regardless of wherever or not I already own four pairs of shoes in the same color (not that this has ever happened to me…).
So there you have it, five random things you may or may not have known about me. Have a great weekend!
Now it’s your turn! Tell me something random about you!
