[Day 26] 10 things you might not know about me

image

It’s day 26 of the blog challenge.

I have exactly 30 minutes to finish this post, so it’s not going to be fancy, but potentially amazing.

Always potential for amazing right?

Topic choices are:

1) Top 10 things you probably don’t know about me

OR

2) Top 10 anything – favorite websites, great tips, cat memes, inspirational quotes, etc., etc.

I’m going to do the first one, because I recently did a top ten list (you can read my go-to list of things to do instead of freaking out here).

Before I get into the topic I wanted to share what happened this morning. I had to wake up at 2:45am for a banquet shift at 4am. I was obviously tired, but still smiling and greeting guests.

I looked to my left and noticed a woman going down the line (we were lined up in a “human arrow” directing people to the back) taking the time to acknowledge each server and give them a hug. Her warmth was angelic – it literally filled and changed the whole room. When she reached me she held onto my hand while she looked me in the eyes and said “you’re lovely.” As she walked away tears welled up in my eyes. I needed to see that. I needed to feel it.

Thanks for that universe.

Now, onto ten things you might not know about me.

1. I was a competitive gymnast. I won 30 something all-arounds in a row.
2. Whilst competing I broke a record on bars for the the gym I was competing at. I received a 9.75 and a standing ovation during the awards ceremony.
3. I was planning a natural birth, but had to have an emergency cesarean.
4. I have jumped out of an airplane – twice.
5. I’m a vegetarian. I think I may have told you this.
6. I graduated high school when I was 16.
7. My brother shot himself when I was a little girl. Although he pulled the trigger, they suspect it was murder as the gun wasn’t previously loaded when he was “playing” with it.
8. Shortly after, I wrote about it and my brother’s addiction to drugs for my D.A.R.E. graduation and was asked to read it to the auditorium. That was my first public speaking engagement.
9. Commercials make me cry sometimes.
10. I do not own a microwave.

And my 30 minutes is up!
