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!
- I was on the fencing team in high school and college. I learned how to fence using all three weapons: foil, epée and sabre.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- One of my hobbies is cooking. I love cooking, especially when other people can enjoy it with me, although I’m terrible at baking.
- 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.
- My bachelor’s degree was in biology, and I have a master’s degree in mental health counseling.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
