a journey of knees and hair color | about me update

Hey everyone! We have some new people around these here parts (WELCOME! : D) and I figured I could update the post from last year. So today I am presenting 12 random things about me. Quite honestly, it’s difficult to think of random and interesting things about yourself. Regardless, I have done so – enjoy!

#1 – I am obsessed with splitting and the tracking the year in quarters. One of the few positive-ish (?) things corporate America has given to me. Hahaha I’m being totally serious.

#2 – I played lacrosse during my junior year of high school and I absolutely loved it until…

#3 – I tore my ACL, MCL and a part of my meniscus in my left knee during the first week of my senior year of high school. How you ask? On a trampoline, practicing tricks to do on my snowboard LOL.

#4 – I’ve dyed my hair red, blonde, black, brunette and back to blonde all in the last six years. My favorites thus far have been red and blonde. Just waiting to get out of corporate America so I can dye it pink, purple and turquoise. Maybe all at the same time?

#5 – If you read my post last year, you know I loved the idea of becoming an airport bartender or a police detective. Well, about a year later, I’m more seriously looking into a new realm of work. This time I’m thinking something more health/wellness/fitness/nutrition. Stay tuned, you never know if you’ll catch me at an airport bar or applying for med school. HAHA.

#6 – Also very different from last year is what I’m eating while writing this…chicken that I did not get from Cane’s or Chic Fil A. I made it, it’s not unhealthy. #Growth

#7 – I got my septum pierced back when it was trendy and cool. I still have it in but only wear it out occasionally. Is it still cool? Do people still do this? I don’t know.

#8 – My childhood crushes were Tim Allen (Home Improvement) and Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future). MJ was recently at a Golden Knights game and it was thee most precious thing I’ve ever seen.

#9 – I have a tattoo of a band that I no longer listen to. NO RAGRETS. Yes you can ask me about it if you feel the need.

#10 – I alternate watching The Office and Parks & Rec to fall asleep every night. Currently I’m deep into The Office (where Will Ferrell shows up) and I’m not kidding when I say this is probably the 50th time I’ve seen the series all the way through.¬†

#11 – I love music from all over the spectrum but Dave Matthews, John Mayer, The Killers and Kaskade REALLY do somethin’ to me.

#12 – I am a member of the small portion of the population who LOVES PEEPS. Go represent for your side on my Insta Story Poll!

And those are some random-ass facts about me. Good Day Sir (or Ma’am). See you next time!
