Friday Five

Today I thought it'd be fun to do a different type of Friday Five post, instead of sharing 5 things on my mind I'm going to share 5 things about me! I noticed a few new faces around here and Instagram and Twitter so I wanted to share a few things about myself. I think the best part of blogging is the community so I love getting to know everyone a little bit better. We may have never gone to summer camp together where we played one of those "if your favorite food is pizza take a step forward" type games, but hopefully with posts like these we can all get to know one another a bit better. I'd love if you left a comment telling me something about yourself or a link to a post where you've done the same!

1. I laugh and roll my eyes when I'm feeling uncomfortable. People think that I'm being rude or disengaged, but really I just feel really awkward. It's a nervous tick I didn't even realize I had until a boy pointed it out to me about a year ago.

2. I really really love Harry Potter. As in Harry Potter World (yes I know it's not called that but it should be) is towards the top of my travel bucket list. I can distinctly remember the first times I heard the stories, yes heard because I listened to them on audiobook with my portable CD player because they were too long to read. The first one I read was number 5 and I'll never forget how quickly a crush I had for a boy ended when he was a faster reader than I was and told me that Sirius was killed at the end. Oh and for the record I'd totally be a Hufflepuff. 

3. My ultimate career goal is to be a freelance travel writer. For a long time I thought I wanted to work in politics, and while I still really enjoy the subject I've realized that's not how I want to live my life. One positive of my job is I've realized I really enjoy the hospitality and travel industry. Taking a trip usually makes people really happy, and well the exact opposite is true of politics. I hope to one day be able to spend my time writing and sharing where to travel, when to go, and what to do there; it's my way of making the world a happier place.

4. My favorite color is pink, but I don't think I look good in it so I hardly ever buy pink clothing. A bag, a beach towel, a donut; if it's offered in pink that's the color I'm going to buy. But when it comes to clothing I sway more towards blues because people always comment how it makes my eyes pop, and well I guess I'm a little vain.

5. I am terrified of snakes, alligators, all bugs, and earthquakes why I'd probably never live in California. But I'm convinced I'll die by drowning. I've never been to a palm reader or anything that told me this was my ultimate fate, so I really can't explain my reasoning but I just feel really strongly about it.

So let's get to know each other a little better, leave me a comment telling something about yourself!

Happy Friday!

  1. I love "get to know me" type posts! I am a total eye roller too!! It kind of gets me in trouble from time to time, haha. Being a freelance travel writer sounds AWESOME! i hope you get the chance to do it someday!!

    Happy Friday!
    xo Always, Abby

  2. I love Harry Potter just as much! I have three Harry Potter tattoos, and I like to call it Harry Potter World, as well. I'm getting married in September and I really want to go there for my bachelorette party! I actually created a composition notebook full of notes for a Harry Potter theme park when I was in middle school. It's so crazy to me that one was actually created!
    Also, I'm a Hufflepuff too!!

    I know this seemed so scatter-brained, but I'm saying all these things so quickly in my head and I was very excited to respond!

I think of every blog post as a conversation. I hope you'll join in and leave a comment so I'm not just talking to myself.
