Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Facts About Me

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

Ten Facts About Me.

#1  I find it really hard to talk about myself. I don’t feel like there is a lot unusual about me or interesting about my life. This points to my lack of confidence and anxiety, something I have struggled with most of my life.

#2  (Because of #1) I recently decided to undertake a self-love project. Spanning the next 6-12 months I am focusing on self-love, balance and healing. I plan on doing a blog post all about it because I have noticed a lot of people in the book community struggling with the same things as myself. I believe supporting one another leads to a greater chance of success. Evelyn Skye, author of The Crowns Game is also doing something similar and we are using the hashtag #reclaimbalance. There are several parts to my project; exercise, counselling, taking ‘me’ time, and keeping a daily journal of happiness.

After all that heavy stuff let me tell you some lighter things. 

#3  I have a son, Theo, he just turned one and he is the light of my life. It’s just him and I, 20160217_110248which can be tough but I wouldn’t change a thing

#4  When people meet me they think I am about 7 years younger than I am. It drives me crazy because they often don’t take me seriously.

#5  Lately I cannot get enough smoothies! I bought a Nutri Ninja and perfected a few healthy delicious recipes that I enjoy daily.

#6  Audiobooks make up 60% of my monthly reads. At least.

#7  My favourite comic is Calvin and Hobbes 1381173609394

#8  When I write I do it all by hand in notebooks, it just feels right.

#9  I have a wiener dog named Gunner. He loves sunbeams and carrots

#10  I JUST got glasses that I have to wear daily and it is a weird transition phase, I also feel a little self conscious?

And a few extras for fun…

#11  I am a welder by trade, not sure if I will ever go backMexico 015 to it now that I have my son. I use to work in Northern Alberta in areas where you have to live in a camp. Not really a mommy type job.

#12 I love to read in my hammock

#13  I’m a runner. Asics are my jam. I also enjoy hiking and geocaching.

#14  I traveled solo to Mexico once and bungee jumped while I was there. I want to travel to so many more places.

#15  I’m addicted to tattoos only slightly less than books.

      1. I had to hoover about 10 minutes after commenting because there was just biscuit everywhere!! 😂 I’m ok when I lie on the floor with a straight back for about 5 minutes 🙂

    1. Thanks, I love it. I have had it for maybe six years now? And this is the first time Ive put it up. I will have to take a picture for Instagram. It isn’t any place fancy, certainly no view of a beach 😦 but it feels like paradise when Im in it.

  1. Omg a fellow audiobook lover!! HUZZAH!! If I could I’d do most of my reading via audio, hehe, I tend to remember books so much better that way. (Although reading them for myself is so much faster. :P) And omg your little one is so so cute! And your dog is cute too!! Such a lovely little family you have. :’) And people always think I’m so much younger than I am too….wahhh. It’s gotten to the point where people assume my little sister is older than me. OH THE SUFFERING.😂
    Here’s my TTT!

    1. I wonder if I will remember them better in the coming years? This is the first year I have listened to audiobooks outside of long trips. Overdrive is my best friend, I even own some of the books I listen to but with the little guy I just dont get the time to read as much. There are lots of times to listen though! I think I read slower, although I’m not sure. Thank you for the compliment. They both mean the world to me. My son already loves books and I hope we get to share that interest in the years to come. Isn’t it frustrating? This one time I was at a bar and a guy I was talking to told me he didn’t date younger girls. Turned out I was three years older than him.


  2. I went through a NutriNinja phase-it does slowly fade away thankfully!
    Also, Calvin and Hobbes is amazing! I have the complete set and re-read them all the time!
    I love geocaching but when I first started way back in high school my mom thought I was going to discover a bomb or be arrested. Actually, I think she still thinks that lol.
    Oh man do I feel ya on the age appearance thing. I’m told I’ll appreciate it when I’m “old,” but now grr.

    Here’s my TTT

    1. Oh I’m okay if it stick around, my son really enjoys them too and I can sneak it all kinds of healthy things. I have exactly zero of the books. My moms last husband had them all and I remember loving them. I should get some to share with my son one day. Haha, I have gotten some weird looks from people but thats about it, out here I am more likely to meet a bear than a bomb. I am always told I’m lucky I look so young – yeah one day!

  3. Gunner is so precious! I have a mini-dachshund/Chihuahua mix with very similar markings and he looks a lot like my dog except that mine has big, pointy ears. People also think I am considerably younger than I am, and I agree it is annoying. I student-taught at a high school last semester and several of the teachers I didn’t know shouted at me for walking in the hall without a pass. I am 22, but they thought I was a student and, what’s worse, a freshman. Great list!
