Lifestyle - 33 About Me

This past week I turned thirty-three and I wanted to do a fun post with 33 "about me" questions right now, in this moment. I always love looking back at these types of reflections later in life and seeing what has stayed a constant. 

  1. What song is stuck in my head? I have been obsessing over "Foreign Affair" by Client Liaison. The 80s vibes are everything and I've had it on repeat.
  2. What are 3 foods you ate today? I made scrambled eggs with turkey bacon and a side of fruit (strawberries & blueberries) for breakfast. 
  3. What is something you are looking forward to? In less than two weeks, we are taking a trip to visit my cousin in New York and stay at her and her husband's cabin home in the Catskill Mountains. My mom is joining us and we're bringing our dogs, so it's going to be a lot of family fun! 
  4. What is the last TV show you watched? I'm a big entertainment junkie, watching a lot of shows on Netflix and Hulu. The most recent I have been watching is called The Killer Speaks, an A&E crime docu-reality series. You learn the details of the crimes committed, hear from the families of the victims and/or others involved in the case, and most disturbing the perspective of the killer themselves while being interviewed in prison. 
  5. What was the last book you read? The Haunted House Diaries by William J. Hall, about a Connecticut family's first hand account of paranormal activity in their 1700's farm house. 
  6. What was the last take out meal you ordered? An açaí bowl with banana, strawberry, dates, almond butter and house made cashew milk blended together and topped with gluten free granola, fresh strawberry, banana, and drizzled with agave nectar. It was as amazing as it sounds. 
  7. What's the most creative thing you've done recently? Created a podcast with a friend. It's been super fun to develop the brand and we love it so much we always find a way to make time for it. 
  8. What is your favorite thing to do on a Friday night? Grab dinner with friends, then head home to get in my PJ's and catch up on my favorite shows. 
  9. What's the last meal someone cooked for you? Megan made us gluten free salmon patties and salad for dinner tonight. It was great, as all of her dishes are! 
  10. What's the last movie you saw in a theater? Game Night with Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams. I thought it was a great Mystery/Crime film with just the right amount of comedy thrown in. 
  11. What are you sentimental about? Definitely anything relating to my childhood. I'm a huge nostalgia nerd, reminiscing any chance I get. 
  12. What do you lie about? Generally speaking, I won't say if something is affecting me emotionally in a negative way if that same thing is positively benefitting someone else. In other words, "I'm fine" even if I'm really not. 
  13. Do you think you make enough money? My initial thought is no. Then comes the guilt. There are so many living with little to nothing, so yes. 
  14. What does your last sent text message say? "Awesome!! Yes, let's plan one!"  This is something exciting for the blog, so I don't want to say yet! 
  15. What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning? Drink a cup of coffee or hot tea, open the windows, sit down and research/write whatever is on my mind. 
  16. What advice would you give to a second-grader? Be kind to everyone you meet. 
  17. What's your favorite snack food? Definitely avocado. Just plain avocado out of the shell with a spoon! 
  18. In three words, describe your love life: Committed, Trusting, Supportive 
  19. What is your biggest regret? Not recognizing my strengths when it mattered most in my youth. 
  20. If you could eliminate one weakness or limitation in your life, what would it be? My anxiety. 
  21. What is your greatest fear? Sickness/Death (for myself and loved ones) 
  22. What's the first amusement park you've been to?grew up in Orlando, so I'm lucky to say it was Disney World. I've been more times than I could begin to count and am always itching to go back. It truly is such a magical place! 
  23. If you have a nickname, what is it? Most people call me Shan or Shanny for short. Other ones are Shanny Pants, Shanny-Poodle, Sha-nay-nay. 
  24. Do you usually remember your dreams in the morning? Probably 90% of the time. I have actually started keeping a dream journal! 
  25. Favorite beverage that isn't water? Either Kombucha or herbal tea! 
  26. Do you have any weird phobias? This may not be a phobia per say, but getting anything on my hands makes me freak out internally until I clean them. If I get food on my hands, I refuse to lick it off, and will only wipe them on something or wash them if I have access to a sink. 
  27. What is one of your biggest pet peeves? People chewing loudly with their mouth open. It drives me absolutely crazy! 
  28. Do you have any irrational fears? Consuming expired food. I'm sure I've thrown out perfectly good food many times because of this fear. 
  29. Any tattoos? Yes, a few. Six to be exact. A nickname with stars around it was my first at 18 years old on the left side of my lower back, followed by a pair of sparrows on my stomach/hip bones, a barred owl feather on the top of my right foot, anniversary date in Roman numerals along the outside of my right forearm, typography (says New York) on my right calf but designed to look like a subway map, and most recently a crescent moon on the inside upper right forearm near my elbow. 
  30. What is your favorite animal (non-pet)?  Ssssllloooottthhhhh. 
  31. Scary movie or happy ending? I think you might know this about me by now. In case you don't, scary movie every time...unless I'm watching it right before bed. I need time to think happy thoughts first. 
  32. Do you have any bad habits? Yes! I'm a nail biter, a knuckle cracker, bubble gum popper...okay I'll stop there before you decide we can't be friends. 
  33. Why am I driven to blog? Blogging is an outlet for me. I love to write even if no one is reading. 
I hope you enjoyed reading these random facts about me and found some that maybe you could relate to as well! Let me know in the comments if so!
