FIVE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT ME | VOL. 8






Hi, my name is Meg. I figured you stop by this little space every now and then, but you may not know all that much about me. The little things, if you will. The things that make me, me. So I started this "5 things" series to let you in on the random details of my life. Here we go!

1 | I copy accents.
I have this weird habit of picking up other peoples' accents and way of speaking. If I spend a significant amount of time around someone, I will begin saying certain words the way they do. This also happens when I watch too much of a TV show. I'll start speaking like my favorite character(s). Ha! #nerd

2 | There was once a great roller blading accident.
If you've been around here for a while, you will have heard about my many accidents. This one time, back in middle school, I was roller blading with friends in our neighborhood. Well, as I was coming down a steep hill and around a curve, I must have caught a little rock or tiny twig, which made one foot go all wonky. I lost all control and went flying across the pavement, tearing up my arms and elbows and tshirt. I still have the scars to show for it!

3 | I love playing board games.
Board games that challenge me to think and strategize are some of my favorites. I am fiercely competitive, and that side of me sometimes comes out in the midst of game time and tends to surprise people...since a lot of people see me as quiet and reserved.

4 | I'm a little bit scared of haircuts.
I think this fear is the product of some traumatizing haircuts growing up, but I now only go get my hair cut a couple of times a year. Partly because I hate paying for it, and partly because I'm scared something will go terribly wrong like the hairdressers hand slipping and cutting off a foot of hair instead of an inch.

5 | I am a night owl AND an early bird.
My best friend always laughs at me for this. I stay up way too late every night but also can't really sleep past 6:30 in the morning. I can't help it! I try to force myself to sleep in sometimes on the weekends, though. There is just too much to see and do and not enough hours in the day! So I stay up late and get up early.


TELL ME SOMETHING I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU!

and I stay up late and struggle in the morning. #Icansleepforever!

Emily S said...

I cannot imagine being both a night owl and early riser! I can only do one, and shift around my 8 hours of sleep accordingly, even unfortunately when I should not!

Laura Jean said...

I feel like I am that way too! I can stay up late or get up early or both and not have too much side effects as long as I am getting a consistent amount of sleep. I am glad I am not the only one!

Rachel said...

I love board games too and get way too competitive as well ha ha! I get you on the night owl and early bird thing. No matter if I'm up until 1AM I can't sleep past 7! It's so annoying sometimes because I know I didn't get enough sleep

I'm very similar in regards to board games. But I love collaborative board games, too, where everyone can work together.

I am the same with haircuts. I'm starting to get that way with getting my hair colored.

Ashlee Keech said...

I hate haircuts too! Actually, I just got my first haircut in over a year this morning!

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

Me too! Me too! I'm not sure how I ever ended up matching dialects, but I do, and it's so fun!

Amy said...

i'm finding out that as i get older i'm a little mixture of both night owl & early bird = BUT i am definitely still more of a morning person. ;)
also, girl, you are soooooo gracefully clumsy (it was the only nice way to put it) haha
i also copy accents!!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha! Yes you can. You sleepy bear, you.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Ha! I may be able to do both, but it doesn't mean I'm always cheerful in the mornings. #grumpycat

Meg McIlvaine said...

Yes! I can still totally function. I might be a little tired or grumpy sometimes, but I can handle it. ;)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Ugh...isn't that annoying! My body automatically wakes me up around 6:30.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Oooh me too! Team work!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha! It is seriously a problem because I end up waiting FOREVER to go.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Crazy! I did that one time...waited a year to get my hair cut. Now I go about twice a year.

Meg McIlvaine said...

Haha it is fun!

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hahaha. Gracefully clumsy. That's my middle name.

Jem Babbles said...

Me and you are the same with numbers 3 & 5!! I love any type of board/card game for the most part and I always want to be on the move! :)

Meg McIlvaine said...

Hooray!
