More About Me

I'm tired, of course. I mean, it's been a whole week and a half since I've had a break. But, I slept better than I have in many, many weeks last night, so I'm taking that as a sign that I'm just plain tired and a week off doesn't cut it.

But, to make a long, whiny story short, I'm going to do another cop out by postin random facts about me that may or may not be known.

1. I actually did do my homework last night. :-) I am completely done with all but one short assignment for the semester. It feels really great. Maybe that's why I'm tired?

2. I cannot drink out of a cup. I have to drink out of something with a straw or a smaller top like a water bottle. I find that if all I have available to me is a cup, I drink exponentially less water than I do if I have a straw. I don't know why this is. It may stem from the fact that I sucked my thumb for a very long time.

3. I don't do seasons. I'm a coastal California girl through and through. I am used to 58 degrees year round. And the redwoods make their own fog when they get too hot, so I'm used to fog. That being said, it's been cold. It snowed (by snowed I mean some flakes came out of the sky for 2 seconds). I am in awe of the people who actually live in seasons. I respect you very much!

4. I brought 4 pairs of shoes to the gym today. I've been going in between my placement and class on Tuesdays and Thursdays now instead of at 4:30 in the morning. This is much more pleasant, but I have to pack a lot more. I had the shoes I wore to my placement, my lifting shoes, my flip flops for the shower, and my off brand Ugg boots. I had my fake Ugg boots because California has suddenly decided to have seasons and I'm FREEZING.

5. One of my biggest pet peeves is when I cannot peel a hard boiled egg and have it intact. I eat a boiled egg every single day practically and I've gotten really good at perfecting my peeling. The last batch I boiled, however, didn't turn out so well and they were impossible to peel. My OCD kicked in and I have gotten overly frustrated with peeling them.

6. I realized that since my friends started having babies, all of the pictures on my phone are of really adorable babies. And I am really, really okay with this. I love them more than anything. When did I become an adult??

So there's some more insight into myself. I hope you've enjoyed it! 


  1. Okay don't freak out but here's how to fix your hardboiled egg problem: cut it in half with the shell on, then spoon out the egg. Tada! (Boiling them with vinegar in the water is supposed to help too.)

    It's amazing how break can somehow make you more tired!

  2. I need to drink water out of a straw too. Partly because it's MUCH harder to spill that way haha.. but also definitely what you said. I drink waaaayyy more water when I have it in a cup with a straw. Interesting that you say it may stem from sucking your thumb when you were younger.. I totally did too.

  3. Just found your blog, I love drinking from straws too! All of my sisters had babies this past summer and my phone is full of pics of them. Babies are too cute not to take pics of haha have a great weekend!

  4. Even though I dread winter I do love seasons! It reminds me that everything changes. It's a beautiful thing!
    I wish I could make hard boil eggs. I always end up making a mess when I make them....I honestly don't know what I am doing wrong lol.
    And babies are everywhere lately!! Crazzzzy!
