5 Things About Me

August 12th, 2011

I needed a little break from the world earlier this week. You know the Twitter “over capacity” whale? That’s kind of how I felt. Anyway, I’m back now and no longer whale-y! (I know, that’s not really a word)

I love reading other blogs that give you a sense of who the writer is – not in terms of what he or she does or knows, but the true character of the person behind the screen and the little (or big) quirks they have. An example of this would be The Man Repeller. If you like fashion and have never heard of her before, you’re missing out! She’s crazy, bold, and laugh-out-loud hilarious.

So in this post, I’ll share with you a few of my quirks. If you’d care to share some back, please do! I’d love to hear them.

1) I constantly have a million tabs open on my browser. Okay, not a million exactly, but a lot. I would bookmark them, but to me the bookmark folder is where “important” tabs go to die – and so they usually stay in my browser until I’m done with them or realize they’re not that important to me.


So many tabs.

2) I’m deeply insecure about my elbows. I can’t even… I think they look weird. I have elbow insecurity. Once I saw a photo of Angelina Jolie and thought her elbows looked like mine, which made me feel better.

3) Whenever I eat Smarties, Skittles, or other candies that come in different colours, I have to sort them by colour, then eat them in an order that evens out the number of pieces of each colour. Gummy bears and Jelly Bellies are the exception to this rule.

4) I used to have a signature jade ring, and broke it about 2.5 years ago. My finger still feels naked from it being missing. Funny how you can get so attached to certain things. (I fully intend to get a custom replacement made one day)

5) I’m an Excel nerd – I have spreadsheets for everything. I even plan parties on Excel.

Your turn…
