LET THE FUN BEGIN!
On this first day of NaBloPoMo, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share some random facts for old and new readers :) Come and get to know me better! Don’t hesitate to ask questions as well.
• I am a fraternal twin. I am 2 minutes older than my twin sister and we don’t look alike at all. Or maybe we do. It’s up for debate.
• According to others, I am one of the most patient persons there is. I hope this is a compliment.
• I am a homebody. I’ll choose an evening on the couch or coffee/dinner with friends over any party night out. This is not to say that I didn’t do my fair share of partying and dancing.
• I can’t sleep without a blanket. Even in the summer, I need at least a sheet to cover up the mid-part of my body.
• I am scared in the dark and I don’t like horror movies (much to J’s dismay, whose favorite holiday is Halloween). When I was little, I often asked my sister if I could sleep in her bed with her.
• I’ve started to learn skiing when I was 4 years old. I got my instructor’s license when I was in College and went on some skiing trips with my old highschool and taught some 9th graders for a couple of winters.
• I’ve always been a Daddy’s girl, but I am also incredibly close with my Mom.
• I love Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year!
• I’ve known my oldest friend since Kindergarten. It’s amazing to think that we practically shared all of our lives together.
• I love the smell of coffee far more than the taste of it, although I have come to appreciate a good cup of coffee (with just the right amount of milk/creamer).
• I always hated to write in cursive. I think cursive handwriting can be very pretty, but I don’t like my cursive handwriting. As soon as I left elementary school (where they made us write in cursive), I always printed – up to this day.
• I worked as a mail carrier during the summer breaks in College. It was a fun job, because you were outside all day riding around on a bike in gorgeous weather and the work load was significantly reduced during the summer. I also loved delivering (personal) letters and packages to people, knowing that I would put a smile on somebody’s face. However, being a mail carrier in Germany is a tough job. I do not envy the people who do this day in and day out in any kind of weather!
Now, your turn – tell me something about you that I don’t know!
