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!
