Top Ten Tuesday: About Me

Originally posted on Leah’s Books.

I spend a lot of time on here talking about books, but this week’s topic is a non-book freebie! This week I’m going to discuss ten random facts about me that will hopefully let you get to know me a little better. Some of these you might have picked up if you read certain posts or follow my social media pages, but others I don’t usually talk about at all. I really dug deep here, so don’t be shy about commenting and making me feel better about opening up!

  1. I was on the fencing team in high school and college. I learned how to fence using all three weapons: foil, epée and sabre.
  2. I’m very much a dog person. It doesn’t help that I’m highly allergic to cats. I have three of the most spoiled chihuahuas you can imagine, and only one of them is a jerk.
  3. I was an aunt when I was six years old. I’m closer in age to my oldest three nephews than I am to any of my siblings.
  4. My father was a Holocaust survivor, and that had a major influence on my life. He always stressed the importance of education, since it’s the only thing no one can ever take away from you.
  5. One of my hobbies is cooking. I love cooking, especially when other people can enjoy it with me, although I’m terrible at baking.
  6. I don’t watch much television, although I am completely hooked on watching Snowfall, Queen Sugar, Will Trent, Mayfair Witches, and The Handmaid’s Tale.
  7. My bachelor’s degree was in biology, and I have a master’s degree in mental health counseling.
  8. I stole a tiny seal stuffed animal from Disney World when I was a baby in a stroller, and I still have him today. His name is Solo, and my mom loves to tell how I stuffed him under the blanket and didn’t pull him out until after we left the store.
  9. Traveling has always been a dream of mine, and I haven’t gotten to visit nearly as many places (either in the US or around the world) as I would have liked to yet. But there’s still time!
  10. I can drive a stick shift car really well. At least, I could about 10 years ago. But I hear it’s like riding a bike and you never really forget how.

Do we have anything in common?
