Do you ever read blogs and wish you knew fun facts about those bloggers like you would a best friend? I know I do. So I started my "Five Things" series so you could get to know the random tidbits about my life!

1 | I started piano lessons when I was seven and played through high school.
I didn't always love it at the time, but playing piano was a huge stress reliever for me. In middle school, I decided I wanted to be a fiddle player, but my parents told me I could either do both or just piano because they would not allow me to quit. I didn't have time for both, so after a few weeks of fiddle lessons, my dreams of becoming the world's best fiddler came to an end. Now I'm glad my parents made me stick with one instrument and see it through to the end of school. :)

2 | One of my biggest pet peeves is when someone uses their cell phone while in a movie theater.
I cannot even tell you how much this frustrates me. First of all, everyone can see you and your bright-as-the-sun phone screen. Second, I paid (and so did you) to see this movie, so SEE the movie. Third, can you really not go two hours without looking at your phone? I think that says some sad things about our culture.

3 | I broke my nose in college during an ultimate frisbee game.
I was passing this guy while running for the disc and he decided to turn at the exact time of me passing him. I was head-butted in the nose, fell to the ground, blacked out, and was bleeding from a big cut on my nose. I didn't know until later that night that my nose was actually broken. I ended up having surgery to fix the bone and had to wear a nose brace at night for a couple of months. It was really attractive.

4 | Coconut is not my favorite thing to eat.
I think it's a texture thing. I love the smell of coconut, but I don't like the tasted of it. EXCEPT for in Samoa Girl Scout cookies. I bet it's masked enough by the chocolate and caramel that I don't notice the coconut. ;)

5 | My family is related to Wallace the Bruce.
You know him. The king of Scotland in Braveheart. Yes yes, he was kind of a coward at the beginning but he finally stood up for what was right. I believe it was a cousin from my clan that married him. Thus, we are distantly related. Basically, I am Scottish royalty. ;)

Ok, I'm hanging out on #4 and #5 of this list. :)

#4. I thought I was the only one that had an aversion to coconut. Shredded coconut makes me cringe! Don't mind the smell at all though - but it took a few years for me to like it.

#5. Have you been to Scotland? The William Wallace memorial is AWESOME. Put it on your adventure list ASAP!

Amy said...

you're right. i didn't know you played piano - but it makes sense, you have those elegant fingers <-was that weird to say #sorrynotsorry
#3...STAPPPPPPPP so you mentioned breaking your nose over the weekend but i didn't know how OMG that isn't funny, but it kind of is.

Stacia said...

My sister really dislikes coconut for similar reasons. I feel bad for you two. ;)

Sierra said...

Okay I might be wrong.....but I think I'm related to Wallace the Bruce also. Don't quote me on this because I always get my family history wrong but I swear we are!!!
