5 Random Things. I’ve seen this floating around the bloggy world, so I’m going to jump on the bandwagon and list 5 random things about myself…here goes nothin!
1. I am afraid of heights. Big time. Like I can’t walk by the edge of a stairwell (even if it’s only one story up)…I glue myself to the side of the wall when I go up or down stairs. And I don’t care if people judge me–better than my heart racing and not being able to breathe! (It’s not that bad…but it did get pretty bad at the Pentatonix concert…)
2. I am an only child. Sometimes I wish I had a brother or sister, and then sometimes I think it was pretty darn awesome growing up as an only child. In a way, my Mom and Dad were my parents and my siblings growing up…which is awesome in my opinion! We are super close and I talk to them almost every day (and I know my Mom is reading this…Lurve you MAAAAM!) But I definitely want my future children to have a sibling for a different dynamic…
3. I am a self-confessed chocoholic. Like I seriously think I’m addicted…do they have Chocoholics Anonymous classes anywhere? Sign me up! I eat it in some form every day…and some days more than others. Good for my taste buds, not so good for the scale…or my face. When I get stressed, I tend to eat more of it and then I break out. It’s a vicious cycle and I just can’t stop! I seriously need to go on a no-chocolate diet…but I’m thinking I could only do that for 48 hours. It’d be killer. Baby steps… (And looking back, I’m in awe that I lost 30 pounds last year after seeing my chocolate intake this week, which has been, ahem, slightly higher than usual.)
4. I think I work in one of the coolest fields ever. I graduated with a degree in Marketing & Public Relations and currently work for a well-known nonprofit, but before then I worked at a PR agency and in advertising as a media buyer and planner. In my current position, I am a jack-of-all-trades and am the social media manager, PR spokesperson, event planner, web designer, videographer/photographer, and communications writer and graphic designer! It’s so fun and fast paced and I think it really suits me well (plus, I get to be a part of awesome events/partnerships from time to time…which has allowed me to cross paths with the Chicago Bears, Josh Turner, Kevin Bacon, the Backstreet Boys, etc.)
