Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I thought I would take this opportunity to share a few things about me that you might not know. Some of these may not come as a surprise to some of you, but there might be a few things that you hadn’t thought of. And there are a couple of random things that I thought would just be fun to share. So if you want to get to know me even better, just keep reading!
1. I like working.
It may come as no surprise to anyone who has been around here for a while, but I actually like working. I like to be busy and have things to do. And while I can appreciate down time sometimes, I usually like to be busy with something. I enjoy a job well done and having days filled with getting things done.
2. I’m a daydreamer.
One of my biggest faults is that I often daydream. So sometimes I have a tendency to zone out and not pay attention to things that are actually going on in my real life. It’s been something I have done since I was a young child. Sometimes I day dream about good things, sometimes they are bad things.
3. I’m not good at watching movies.
While I really enjoy watching movies, I must admit I’m not very good at it. My attention span isn’t always the greatest so if a movie is too long or starts to lose my interest it’s hard for me to see it through to the end. But there are movies that I do enjoy and can actually make it through.
4. I really admire people who are verbally captivating.
I am not always great at verbal communication. It’s a skill that I am sorely lacking in. So I really admire those who do have the gift. From comedians to talk show hosts to motivational speakers, I really admire and love watching people who have the ability to hold an audience’s attention.
5. I am not a super affectionate person.
I wasn’t raised in a home with super affectionate parents, so it’s never something I have really ever done. It has had an impact on some of my relationships and it is something I have had to work on. But it’s just never something I really ever gave or was given so I never really learned it.
6. I didn’t love History until I went to college.
I guess I should say I didn’t realize how much I loved History until I went to college. I remember as a child being fascinated with History and learning about different things that have happened. But it wasn’t until college when it really clicked and it was something I wanted to pursue professionally.
7. I’m terrified of water.
I don’t like the beach, lakes, or any large body of water. I never have a desire to go swimming or spend time in a pool. I stand backwards in the shower to make sure no water gets in my face. I am terrified in the very depths of my soul of water. I can’t really explain it, I just always have been.
8. Being on time is super important to me.
Being punctual is a quality that I have always had. It’s a quality that I look for in people I spend time with. Maybe it’s my anxiety, but I hate being late for things. I would usually rather not go at all then show up late somewhere. So I am usually early for most things in my life, including work.
9. I’m naturally a shy person.
I have been a shy person for as long as I can remember. Since I was a very small child. And even though I have come out of my shell a great deal, it is still something I have to work on when I meet someone new. It takes time for me to warm up to new people and actually talk to them.
10. I had two international roommates in college.
I had three roommates in college and two of them were international students. The first was from China and the second from Japan. I loved having international roommates because they were so sweet and it gave me the opportunity to learn about new cultures and countries.
