17 Things You May Not Know About Me

In honor of 2017, I thought it would be fun to share seventeen things about me you may not know. Some are serious, some are silly, but nonetheless they are random tidbits about me I thought I’d share.

  1. I have never obsessed about anything that I recall. When I say “obsessed” I’m talking the living, eating, breathing, sleeping, that is all that I talk about it, think about, and drive everyone crazy about for days or months on end.

  1. I am a recovering perfectionist. This is an ongoing issue that I am continually working on. I am continually telling myself that flaws, the minor~ist of flaws are a good thing. Being a perfectionist is debilitating on a good day and a nuisance on others. But, if I don’t work on keeping it in check, it can be damaging to relationships.

  1. I played the flute and piccolo for years. I truly enjoyed both instruments. On another musical note, I have never mastered the piano, but I enjoy it just the same.

  1. Every personality test I have ever taken has been the exact same result ~ INTJ. It really is very accurate, and I have learned a lot about myself the more I learn about this personality type, and I’ve learned why I struggle so much in specific areas of life. For example, I do not do small talk well at all and it is exhausting for me to do so, but I try nonetheless.

    1. I have two “rainbow babies” as the term has risen in popularity. While admittedly, I do not understand why the term “rainbow babies” exists, I do however, understand the heart behind it.

  1. I am an absolute sucker for polar bears and for the life of me can not figure out why my husband will not let me have one. (*wink*)

  1. I am an avid DIY’er. Truth be told, I come from a long line of DIY’ers and I enjoy construction projects.

    1. I had a pet lizard in high school. (Yes, I know a totally random fact that is just an, “well, that’s interesting, alright y-then” fact).

  1. I do not have just one favorite color. I have a collection of colors and each fulfills a specific trait. Oh, now if I shared the traits, or colors for that matter, then what secrets would I still have? lol

        1. I love to write. I struggle with it (see #2 above), but I love it nonetheless.

  1. I am a control freak and like #2 above, I am constantly struggling with not “having control”. It has gotten better over the years (a lot of counseling taught me some pretty awesome skills), but each day it rears it’s ugly head in some way.

        1. I learned how to ride a horse both English and Western style in high school.

  1. I am terrified of hobby horses. My mother tells me it’s because of an episode of “The Twilight Zone” I walked in on as kid and to this day I still find them a disturbing and inappropriate child’s toy. Truth be told, not fond of carousel horses either.

  1. I have the same irrational thoughts regarding clowns. Although, if you’ve ever looked at some clowns then the argument could be made that my thoughts are not irrational.

              1. I have had the same best friend for forty years! She is my “sister from another mother”!

  1. Raccoon’s will forever have a very special place in my heart due to a camping trip with my family as a kid.

  1. I hesitate to “publish” with every article I write, but this one will really be a challenge because I admitted, publicly, to a few major flaws. I’ll publish it anyhow, because it will be good for me.

So, there you have it. Seventeen random, and in some cases, serious facts about me. Aren’t you glad I shared these little tidbits?
