FIVE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME | VOL. 3





Hello friends! Welcome to another installment of facts about little old me. I figured that if you and I were real life friends, you'd probably know the the random things about me, the minute details, and the odd idiosyncrasies. In an effort to get to know one another better, here are a few things you might not know about me...

1 | I am an introvert.
Is this a surprise to you? Me too. Up until last year, I would always tell people I was an extrovert because that's what the test results always said! Truthfully, I think I've always been an introvert but paraded around as an extrovert for most of my life. However, my preference of introversion over extroversion is very slim. All I know is that I love people, but I need my alone time in order to recharge so that I can be around them again.

2 | Grocery stores are not for me. 
I can't even explain to you how stressed I get about going to the grocery store. There are so many people reaching and grabbing for things, and I don't feel like I can ever find what I need. So I end up walking up and down every single aisle of the store. I swear those aisle signs don't tell the truth about what that aisle actually contains.

3 | I have always wanted to be in a musical.
Animated or real life...it doesn't matter to me. Musicals are my jam. Randomly breaking out into song? Singing everything that comes to mind? Count me in. Of course, I'd never make it on broadway because I have terrible stage fright, but a girl can still dream, right?

4 | Randomness is my forte. 
Seriously, I should be given an award for this. Oh wait, I was. At the end of one of my summers at camp, my counselors gave me the "most wonderfully random" award. My life was complete. ;) One of my best friends always tells me that I'm a Marcel the Shell on the randomness scale. That's pretty high on the scale, in case you were wondering. I tend to spit out whatever is on my mind, which seems to come out of the blue to whoever is listening, but if you could see the way my brain works...I could tell you step by step how I got to that seemingly random thought.

5 | I am very animated.
According to my friends, I talk with my hands a lot and have awesome (note: not attractive) facial expressions. Basically, I need to be an animated Disney character, is what they are saying. ;) Also, when I get excited, it goes something like this.

WHAT'S ONE RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOU?

After reading you and Beth's posts every day, I feel like we are friends! Ha! I love getting to know you both through your blogs.

Grocery stores are the worst!

In high school I worked at a grocery store and I still share your thoughts on #2.

Cassie Lee said...

I'm super animated as well - my facial expressions are not always discrete which can be a problem haha

Stacia said...

Such a fun list! I'm an outgoing introvert, too. A lot of people confuse being friendly and outgoing for extrovertedness, but it comes back to how you gain your energy more than how friendly you are. :)

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

Wait, you like musicals!??!

Christina Main said...

Oh man I giggled at #2. I can't even begin to tell you how happy "shopping day" makes me. It's literally one of most favorite things. I love walking slowly up and down the isles, looking at all the fun things I can buy (AND EAT) and create things with. But, I do have a husband who doesn't enjoy it as much, so I get it :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

I was always in the our church musicals/plays growing up and I loved it!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yes. I'm sorry I've kept this information from you for our entire friendship. ;)

Meg McIlvaine said...
