I thought I would do a little something different on the blog this week, so here goes…
10 Things I Bet You Didn’t Know About Me:
#10. I have a hard time doing ‘nothing’ and LOVE being productive. On Saturdays, even if I don’t have any actual plans, I usually end up making a list of to do’s for myself and rarely stay at home most of the day.
#9. When I was in the 3rd grade I begged my parents to let me ride the school bus home from school and somehow ended up spending 3 days in I.S.S. as a result (In School Suspension).
#8. I am determined to get the absolute best deal (possibly to the point of borderline obsession). I’ll see something somewhere (shoes, sunglasses, furniture, a hotel, plane tickets, you name it) and will google it for hours on end to make sure I’m not getting ripped off.
#7. I spend close to 10 hours a week just commuting to and from work (geesh that seems like such a waste of time doesn’t it?).
#6. My love language comes in the form of planning. I love making things happen, planning trips, party preparations, and knowing what’s next. I rarely come back from a trip and not have another one planned.
#5. Riding my bike is one of my favorite past times. I feel like a little kid every time I go for a spin…plus there’s something so freeing about just seeing where the wind takes you.
#4. I would pass up a fancy 5 course meal for Tex Mex ANY DAY of the week.
#3. I was terrible at French in high school (well, still am). I mean, I made a decent grade but could I actually order a meal much less have a conversation? Absolutely not. I had no idea I was good at languages until I moved to the Netherlands and seemed to pick it up relatively quick. You’re never too old to learn, right?
#2. I connect with people’s feelings. If I am in a room full of new people, I generally feel uncomfortable with small talk (unlike a lot of people). But the moment a real, deep conversation starts, I am at ease. It is relatable and honest, which I love.
#1. I didn’t know what it felt like to be lonely until I was 22. I grew up with a loving family and surrounded by a church family/friends that always made me feel welcome and wanted. It wasn’t until I moved to the Netherlands that I discovered what loneliness felt like. I had to start over – I yearned for meaningful relationships and to be ‘understood’. Isn’t it great when people just ‘get you’?
Thankful for the last 5 years of building up character, new friendships and also learning to be content by myself.
