FIVE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME | VOL. 5





1 | Most of my best friends either live out of town or out of state.
Either way, I have to (get to) travel to go visit them. I made best friends who moved away after college, or I had best friends from high school who lived far away from me in the first place. The perk of this predicament is related to the following...

2 | I love to travel.
Don't get me wrong, I'm also a total homebody. However, I love getting away, adventuring, and experiencing something new. I like to take trips to visit friends, go places I've never been, meet new people, have new experiences, etc. At the end of the trip, though, as much as I hate for it to be over, I'm also always ready to sleep in my own bed and spend time in the hills of Tennessee.

3 | I will not share my toothbrush with anyone.
This is one I recently discovered about myself. Haha! Someone forgot their toothbrush and asked to borrow mine, and I seriously couldn't bring myself to share. Like ever. SO MANY GERMS. Ew.

4 | I hate eating by myself in public.
It just feels lonely, and you always feel like everyone is staring at you. I can eat at home alone just fine. But put a meal in front of me all by my lonesome out in public, and I'm 100% more likely to spill everything on myself because I'm so nervous and self-conscious.

5 | I am 5'7".
It's funny to me in this online world that you cannot always tell how tall people are just by looking at photos. I'm apparently average height, but the fact is that I am taller than the majority of my gal pals. I tower over my Colorado bestie, but we always forget how much taller I am until we look back at photos of us together. Ha! How tall are YOU??

TELL ME SOMETHING RANDOM ABOUT YOU!

I don't like eating by myself in public either... even if I have something to do like read a book... still feels weird!

Kayla Miller said...

I didn't know that toothbrush sharing is a thing. I agree, that's incredibly gross.

And I'm also 5'7" but my friends have forever been shorter, so I didn't realize that was average height!

Laura Jean said...

I used to hate eating in public by myself. My job however has gotten me out of that bubble and it is like my new normal. When I see people in restaurants by themselves however I still feel bad for them, even though that is me 50% of the time!

Jenny Williams said...

If 5'7" is average, then I am a shrimp at 5'4"! I seem to have a lot of tall friends, too, which doesn't help my image. ;-) And...no. I would NEVER share my toothbrush. I can't believe someone asked to borrow yours, quite frankly. If I ever shared mine, I wouldn't want it back. It would be like asking for a kleenex back when they were finished...

I'm 5'7" too! Too fun :)!

Ashlee Keech said...

I'm 5'3'', but I had no idea that was so far below average. Fun fact: I can never reach the items on the top shelf in the kitchen so I always use our tongs for the grill to grab things and pull them down!

TheJessaOlsonBlog said...

I'm 5'7' too!! YAY us!! I am the same way I love to travel and do stuff, but sometimes I just love relaxing too! All my besties live out of state too, but I really don't have anyone in Wv.

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

sorry I tried to share a toothbrush with you... ;)

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

now everyone thinks I am super gross.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Sorry I couldn't bring myself to share. Can we please still be friends? ;)

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

duh. My husband won't even share with me! I am used to it ;)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

I'm 5'2", extra miniature. hahahaha!

Stacia said...

It was funny to see your photos with Sam because she always looks so tall in her photos. But since I've met you I actually had an idea of your height difference. haha. I love these lists of yours!

Amy said...

#3...uh yes. i can not understand the dang sharing toothbrush thing!

Amy said...

ARE YOU?!?!?!! hahah
i'm 5'5. (and the tallest female in the family)
i totally thought you were taller ;)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

I think I'm the shortest female in the family, ha! It's it crazy how we all look different heights in the blog world!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hee hee. I'm a germaphobe about certain things!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha I know! Before she told me her height, I thought she was as tall as me!

Meg McIlvaine said...

The best!

Meg McIlvaine said...

BAHAHA.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hooray! Height twins.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Aw sad! HAHA. At least you've found creative ways to help yourself out! ;)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yay!! More friends my height.

Meg McIlvaine said...

One of my best friends is 5'10" and she's the tallest girl friend that I have!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Well, I'm glad you've gotten used to it! I'm sure I would too if it was a must for me. :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yeah! My doctor always tells me that I'm average height, so I just got with it. haha.

Meg McIlvaine said...

I know!! I'm glad I'm not alone...Haha! ;)

Meg McIlvaine said...

I had to eat by myself in the airport the other day and I always feel like everyone is watching even though they probably aren't. Ha!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Haha I love posts like this!! And EW I never even thought about sharing toothbrushes before. I feel ya on all points, lady, well... except maybe the last one ;)

Stacia said...

The internet is such a strange place of accidental misconceptions. haha

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha! Some people can do it, but I can't. I need my own toothbrush ;)
