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, which 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
#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 back 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.
