Get To Know Me Tag!
I figured I would put together a post with some “get to know me” type questions and answers that go beyond my “About Me” page!
When is your birthday?
December 17th! Any other Sagittarius friends out there?!
Do you have any siblings?
Nope! Only child.
Where did you grow up?
Falmouth, MA! Yes, I lived on the Cape year round.
Lavender, freshly cut grass, vanilla, and the beach.
Did you play any sports?
Growing up I played nearly every sport possible! I loved running around and trying new things. Eventually, I settled on field hockey and lacrosse and played throughout high school.
Where is your favorite place you’ve been?
Italy! I’ve been three times and I’m obsessed. The sights, the food, the wine, UGH. Take me back!
I can recite “Twas The Night Before Christmas” by heart! I really don’t know how this happened…I just read it every year on Christmas Eve as a child and it stuck!
Something people would be surprised to know about you?
I don’t like condiments! Ketchup, mayo, mustard, salad dressing….not a single one! Weird, I know.
I have two fat and adorable English Bulldogs, Miley and Lola! I also have two turtles! When I was little I was obsessed with the book “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” by Judy Blume and the character had a turtle named Dribble, so naturally I wanted one as well. My Dad got me two little red ear slider turtles at this county fair in Sandwich, NH, and they’ve been swimming around about 13 years now! When I was younger I also LOVED hamsters, my first one was named Liesl after the character in “The Sound of Music”
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Hmm. I used to think I was 100% extroverted, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve come to embrace my many introverted qualities. I like to define myself as an introverted extrovert.
Favorite childhood memory?
My Nana and Papa would take me and my cousins on their sailboat every summer to Martha’s Vineyard, there are endless fond memories from these trips!
If you know me, you know this question is nearly impossible, haha! I love sooo many books. But, the one book that truly changed my life and will always have a spot in my heart, is “Stargirl” by Jerry Spinelli. One of my teachers in 6th grade recommended it to me and it changed my life. Also, I can’t talk about my favorite book without naming “Wild” by my #WCW Cheryl Strayed. I mean, c’mon. Pure gold.
Jane! After my Mimi.
Heights, losing a loved one, drowning.
Last song you listened to?
Work Out by Chance the Rapper. I am OBSESSED with his new songs.
Slow walkers, poor grammar, receiving multiple texts instead of one cohesive text, mean/rude people. Oh, and also, everything involving driving on Long Island, the.literal.worst.
Literally all things cheese. Grilled cheese, mozzarella sticks, pizza, mac & cheese, YUMMMMM. On a healthier note, I absolutely ADORE watermelon.
Most prized possession?
I’m a really sentimental person, so mostly things that people I care about gave or made me. My room is filled with art and trinkets that are special to me. Also, probably my books (nerd alert, I know). But I love them all so much! I also have a charm bracelet that my parents have made for me since I was born and it has charms with milestones or special moments on them.
P.S I Love You, Beaches, and Steel Magnolias. I’m a sucker for tear-jerkers!
Dog or cat person?
Dog! But lots of love to all my cat-loving friends out there!
Ideal first date?
Anything outside! I like to DO things on dates. Take me to the beach or on a hike, throw in some deep conversation and I’m sold!
What is something that amazes you?
The night sky. I love it so much, I could stare at it all night.
Coffee or tea?
Tea! I actually don’t like coffee, I know. I don’t drink caffeine either, so decaf tea for me!
Least favorite household chore?
Laundry. I hate it. I hate it SO much. I’m definitely a down-to-the-last-pair-of-underwear kinda gal.
Worst grade you’ve gotten?
I got a 34% on my pre-algebra test in 7th grade….I was absolutely mortified, but here I am as a senior in college, so clearly it all worked out!
Favorite yoga pose? Least favorite?
Favorite: wheel pose! I loveee heart openers. Least favorite: Lizard pose, eek my hips!
Morning person or night owl?
Night owl 100%. I am not pleasant in the morning. You can usually find me up until 1am and sleeping till noon. Some of my best thoughts come to me late at night!
What makes you happy?
So much! Mostly doing the things I love with the people I love. Yoga, photography, writing, being outside, summer, reading, the list goes on and on! Seeing the people I love happy also makes me happy.
Well, there you have it! I hope you enjoyed these fun little questions about me! What are some of your answers?
